The room was clean and fresh with air conditioning. The central location is good with good transport connections to places across London. Also the street next to the hotel has some good cafes and pubs.

We walked all over London from here - 10 minutes walk max to Piccadilly Circus and you see so much more when you walk. Room and breakfast ok. Good beds. Staff ok and good value for money. I would definitely stay there again.

This was a good value London hotel. The entrance is a bit soul-less but rooms are spacious and comfortable. It has good shops nearby and a variety of restaurants. The hotel restaurant is quite acceptable. Good breakfast is available.

Our first time in London and we were so excited to be staying in Bloomsbury. We get off of our 8.5 hrs flights, drive forever to the hotel and when we arrive, no one even offers to take our bags to our room, nor did they give us a map or any city information (when we went to Paris later... More

On arrival we were greeted by a surly and uninterested reception staff; when they eventually found our booking we had to pay for each room separately, despite both rooms being on the same booking and being paid by the same card; this was time consuming and frankly just a jobsworth attitude. We were told “it’s the system at fault” not... More

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
