Stayed for one night and was really pleasantly surprised at the standard of the 'standard rooms'. Quite large and large bathroom. Well equipped with everything we needed. Staff at check-in very courteous and informative. The bed was massive! Lift slow but we were on 5th floor so understandable getting down at breakfast time. Breakfast was lovely and a great choice...

Right at the center of action, this is a nice place for a quick stay. Avoid lower floor rooms as the rooms look very tired and rooms at upper most floors as there is no lift access!!! Cant blame them...its an old buliding. Well the brighter part, staff are very friendly and the service very efficient. Would recommend.

Good hotel. Comfortable room, breakfast with many choices, reasonable service, excellent wi-fi, good location (very close to three subway stations: Russell Square, Helborn and Tottenham Court Road). Negative point only highlight the minimum size of the shower stall and the lift very slow.

I had to travel overnight to get to London on the megabus and we were allowed to check in at 9am instead of the usual afternoon time and were ever given a cup of tea to relax with while we waited to get our room keys. The location was very handy as it is very close walking distance to the... More

Perfect location, easy walk to Russel square tube or even to covent garden. Also on same line as airport and St Pancras so less walking with heavy cases. Reception area smart but upstairs rooms and corridors not well maintained. Breakfast is overpriced - rather take the money next door to Starbucks. Staff very friendly not much English though. They keep... More

The website makes the hotel look agreeable - it is not. The bar and dining room are far too brightly lit there is no wonder no body ventures inside . The corridors are awful with no decor and the rooms are at beat functional and could be described as awful - I have stayed in worse - in the Bayswater... More

What a gem of a hotel this is! We were going to the theatre and spent two nights here. On arrival we were VERY warmly greeted (not always the case in London). We were given the option of a room at the front or a quiet one at the back. Without hesitation we chose the one at the back! OK... More

Neighborhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
