I just spent one night at the Holiday Inn Bloomsbury London. The room was a nice size, very clean and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable and the area is very quiet. The breakfast was excellent with a wide choice. I also had some dinner in the pub downstairs which was really nice. The staff were very cordial and helpful.... More

A good, clean Holiday Inn experience with a great location which allowed us to catch an evening West End show and set if on Eurostar for 8am (had to miss the inclusive breakfast dye to 30 min check-in time at St Pancras -so if that's a consideration weekend breakfast doesn't start till 7am). I paid for this with BA miles... More

We have stayed here a couple of times, and never been let down. Central location, close to underground (direct service to Heathrow) and buses (direct service to both down town and Camden), and within walking distance to West End. Area around the hotel is very nice, with shops and restaurants/bars. Rooms are clean, large and well kept. Aircon works fine.... More

This is a good hotel and the staff are unusually good for a Holiday Inn-more like the standard of staff you get in Holiday Inn Express hotels! I had an executive room which was nice with all the usual amenities. As well as air-conditioning there was also a window that opened, which was great. The room was at the back... More

Very easy to get to, easily walk-able from Euston or St. Pancras. Check-in service is friendly and efficient and I can recommend prepaying for the breakfast. Concierge service is excellent, especially if you wish to leave luggage with them on your last day if your train home is late. Rooms are comfortable altho decor is a little outdated and probably...

I hesitated in putting this review on as, although the problem was solved in the end, it didn't stop our holiday being almost completely ruined until the very last minute. My partner is a disabled (paraplegic) wheelchair user. This means that she is totally confined to her wheelchair & unlike some disabled people, cannot get out of the chair or... More

Stayed at this hotel on business for 3 nights in July. Got upgraded to executive room upon check-in, which was nice. Egle welcomed me pleasantly and processed my check-in efficiently. The room was up to standard and had the usual amenities. However, what was strange was that the minibar was empty and there was a sign saying that if you... More

Very sadly first impressions are so crucial and can temper a whole experience. I say sadly because the receptionist who not only failed to smile, assist or offer help in any way was the introduction to what is a lovely looking reception area. This is the first time i have ever encountered a non helpful receptionist in a hotel and... More

Great location - v handy for euston, lots of bars etc near bye and a nice walk to many of the London sights and attractions (covent garden, British museum etc) Like many holiday inns nowadays though, the rooms are very tired; and at this HI also quite pokey. Having said all that, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the... More

What the pub itself perhaps may lack in stylish interiors, it more than makes up in convenience, welcoming staff and great atmosphere, particularly during events and especially during the current world cup. It occasionally becomes a bit of a friendly hub to socialise and watch matches for the German community in London, and often offers German snacks and dishes (cooked... More
