Stayed here as part of a theatre package for 1night. The reception staff were very accomodating and friendly with any questions we had. The room was clean, we had twin beds, tea and coffee facilities and a reasonable sized bathroom. Many reviews stated that thw rooms were "tiny", they are a comfortable size and had plenty of room.

We stayed at Bloomsbury Park for one night on New Years Eve. Check in was quick and easy, we had arrived early but our room was available straight away. The room was clean and tidy with plenty of tea and coffee supplies and bathroom items. The bathroom was a bit small, with a shower but no bath. Plenty of clean... More

Always find booking hotels in London a nightmare but this place was a gem. 10 minute walk from theatre land, lovely staff and great food. The room was small but our one at the back was very quiet and clean. Beds were also comfy. Would highly recommend.

This hotel is on Southampton Row, right between the Holborn and Russell Square tube stations, a short ride to anywhere in London, and quite a short walk to the British Museum. The room was small but comfortable, though there was no tub in the bathroom. Very reasonably-priced overall, including the restaurant.

We stayed there for 3 nights this week while my daughter was in the nearby hospital. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. The room was cleaned every day, including clean towels.
