A one night stay with work and the hotel was booked at quite short notice for £150 so good value. The hotel is close to the tube and plenty of things to east,drink and within walking distance. The welcome on arrival was really friendly and on the whole the stay was decent. It is always good to get free wifi... More

I recently stayed two nights in this hotel. It was perfect location for theatre land. 15 mins walk maximum. Good price and the room was clean with a large bathroom. I would recommend this hotel for anyone staying in london - its a level walk to all amenities and I was very pleased with it.

Superb hotel with excellent staff, specially worth mentioning "Mo", the barman, who was friendly and welcoming with lots of character. Great location for sightseeing around London. Special mention to Chido who booked us into a fantastic room. Will definately be back!

I stayed at Bloomsbury Park Hotel with my daughter for two nights in mid-July 2014 and was overall satisfied. The Room (209 I think) was pretty small but I had expected that, however, the bed was comfortable and everything was functional. It was VERY warm even with the windows open but a fan was provided for some comfort. The only... More

Hotel room (room 403)was not a bad size for London. It was big enough for a small desk and chair, two arm chairs and a table, a double bed and a 32 inch TV. Gadget freaks will enjoy the TV. You can play apps on it, view your bill and check out on it, hook a laptop to it via... More

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel. It's location is very convenient for getting out and about.

I come from South Africa - our definition of 4 star-rated and 5 star-rated hotels obviously does not gel with the quality of hotels in London. Convenient location, yes, but the rooms are really tiny and cramped, and I swear I could feel the bed bugs biting me. Lots of noise through the steel windows, even after midnight. The lifts... More

Stayed here overnight while meeting friends in Covent Garden. Everything was spot on from the moment I arrived at the hotel. Check in was quick and efficient. The staff were friendly and helped out with directions. Nice clean rooms. Breakfast was great.

good location, clean room, friendly and helpful staff. The particular experience with me is that when I checked out, I forgot my passport and the 1000 pounds that I had put in the safe in my room. It was when I was in another city about 8 hours later that I thought of these things. I wrote an email and... More
