We arrived late after flying in from Singapore and were given room 109 which was slightly larger than a shoe box and had a view of a rotting wall. We were too tired to complain and had a comfortable night's sleep. We mentioned the size of the room to the receptionist the following morning and by the time we returned... More

Cheerful staff who worked hard to make sure we had everything we needed. Spotless hotel. Very comfortable bed. The room was not very big but it was fine for 2 people for 4 nights as it had everything we needed. We had a room on the top floor and we were able to hear traffic noise. Would we stay here... More

I recently began my 6 weeks UK trip by spending a few nights here. It's in a great location with great rooms. The staff are always very friendly & obliging too. Would recommend this place to anyone & would definitely stay here again. Thanks for the hospitality.

Stayed on business and though in a handy location it is on a busy road & very noisy. Room service was poor and the lift is tiny and slow. Reception are helpful and breakfast is OK. Not sure I would seek to stay here again.

I chose this hotel since it was close to Great Ormond Street Hospital, which I was visiting on official work. Bloomsbury Park is a very convenient hotel situated in between and within 5 minutes of walk from Russel Square and Holborn tube stations. There are plenty of shops, including souvenir shops, restaurants and even a park just outside the 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.
