We booked 2 rooms at the Jenkins Hotel online for one night staying in late June. Thanks to Trip Adviser we knew exactly what we were in for. We chose this hotel because of its excellent location & proximity to St Pancreas station as we travelled by train to Paris the next day. I would normally choose a large hotel,... More

I would normally choose a large hotel, but as booked at short notice chose this hotel for location and price. A plus for us is that the hotel had very recently been refurbished and website said there were ironing facilities in the room. Checking in is at the sister Judd hotel across the road which was fine, however as there... More

I had the misfortune of staying 2 nights, in the basement, no wifi, no tv, in a prison cell. I have never stayed anywhere like it and i don't even want to talk about the experience now I'm home. I think I'm suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome. Don't do it to yourself

I have only just returned home from London and stayed in the Jenkins hotel for just one night. I will attempt to give you the good and bad points so you can make an informed choice about your stay here. The room was very compact, to the point of being able to touch the wall both sides from the bed.... More

Single beds are very small. Bathroom good. Breakfast good. Receptionist was not at all welcoming when we arrived. Mismatch of furniture in room. Free wifi but had to go to hotel across the road to ask for code as no phone in room.

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.
