Stayed here one night with my son in a small twin at the back of the hotel. Problems at check-in - credit card error, not hotel- were soon resolved and up we went. Room clean with lovely welcoming touches of chocs, bottled water and robes but could do with more than 2 plug sockets and also needs an extractor fan... More

Stayed recently on a one night business trip. My recent experiences of London Hotels have been pretty poor so was pleased to find I had a big room with a separate sofa for relaxation, good size TV and good bathroom. I was on the back of the hotel so it was lovely and quiet, got a very good night's sleep... More

This very nice hotel is within walking distance from British Museum, plenty of theaters as well as great shopping streets like Oxford Street and Regent Street. It only tages a few minutes of walking to the nearest tube station: Russell Square (a stop on the blue Piccadilly Line). Hotel staff is most friendly and we also tried and enjoyed the... More

The hotel is located near many good restaurants and transportation but when we were there construction in the alley made sleeping after 8:00 Am impossible. Jack hammers were going from 8-4, making even telephone conversations in the room impossible. Since the hotel has no air conditioning, opening the windows was necessary, yet the noise was unbearable. During the summer, the... More

Stayed for one night at this hotel to do a show and see the sights with another couple. We were early arriving, but the staff were very friendly and helpful and checked to see if the rooms were ready. They were so they booked us in straight away and showed us to our rooms. ( The lift is small, but... More

Our room was beautiful, clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and plentiful. Staff in the breakfast room were amazingly friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. All... More

My wife and I love Covent Garden, but find some of the hotels around that area are just a bit too pricey for us. So, a bit of web searching and we came across Bloomsbury Park Hotel. What a super place this is. We arrived at the hotel at about 11.00am so fully understood that we could not sign in,... More

We booked a room here back in September and paid in full. Turned up today at 5pm after a long day to check in.... Was told there was no room for us! They had "over committed" themselves. I had called two days prior to confirm the room and this issue was not mentioned! Shocking service, would not recommend this hotel... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

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.
