Really awful hotel! I phoned in the morning to check if there was parking, woman was very abrupt on the phone and told me there was free parking all round the area... Got there and there was no free parking around at all. Went in, and I wish I had taken photos... No bedding, just a thin white sheet, it... More

I stay at The Gresham Hotel frequently when working away in London on Business. It has an excellent location in Bloomsbury by the British Museum and the nearest tube is Tottenham Court Rd which is only a 5 minute walk away. Staff are lovely and very helpful, and the reception is staffed 24 hours a day. Samira always goes out... More

The decor was so dated and run down, the furniture was falling art. Apart from that the beds were clean and so was the bathroom. Location is good.there is nothing else I can say about this place in its favour Really would never stay there again

The best of the hotel is the location near the British Museum. The service is not going to smile you but they achieve the minimum clean tasks. Don't forget ear plugs because it's a bit noisy. No wifi in the hotel. Despite this I think it has a good quality-price relation

A very bad experience. It was dirty, run down, tatty and after seeing my room , I paid my cancellation fee and left. The shower was in the toilet and the toilet in a cupboard. I would not recommend this to anyone and should not be allowed to run as an hotel in this area of London.

The only thing you can save from this hostel is the location. Old furniture. I would hardly recommend it. It is 1 minute to British Museum, 5 minutes to Covent Garden, 5 minutes to Soho, 5 minutes to Chinatown, 10 minutes to Picadilly

Staying in Holborn

Neighborhood Profile
Holborn
Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit practically any taste or budget. With major attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House as well as popular areas such as Covent Garden and Soho all just a short walk away, Holborn is a smart base from which to explore London.
