Finding a hotel room for under £200 in central London is a gamble, but one I have to take several times a year when coming to early meetings. This time I've hit the jackpot! The Jenkins is new, clean, comfortable and has really friendly staff, but above all it's SO quiet! Fire doors separate rooms from each other and it's... More

Only 5 minutes walk from Kings Cross St Pancras, this hotel was a decent find. Booking a last-minute room on a Friday night, I was pleasantly surprised that it only cost me £79. I stayed in room LG06, which was a small single, but that was fine. Breakfast was included, but I chose to sleep in instead - although I... More

Certain fellow reviewers have found this charming island of tranquility to be below par. The correlation between poor reviews and room 1 might make the management reconsider their use of thd room. I found the hotel to be immaculate, welcoming and pleasant to stay on business. A comfortable bed, well appointed en suite and clean room underpin the value for... More

We visited London last week for short break and to see the magnificent array of poppies adorning the Tower of London. We chose the Jenkins Hotel because of its location and above all the cost as London Hotels can be quite expensive. The Hotel is a bit odd as previous posts have commented on, you check in across the road... More

A rather pleasant surprise. Average price for a London hotel, expect to pay between 150-240 per night, but it's worth it at least for the quality and size of the room, bathroom, amenities and views. Checking in was an odd experience as one has to collect their room key from another hotel situated across the road?? but once inside the... More

Stayed for an overnight midweek on a business and part leisure trip. Booked this because it was close to Euston station. ( about a four minute walk). The price was also decent. I read that the rooms were really small, and our was tiny, probably the smallest room I've ever stayed in. The twin beds were not full size, more... More

Having finding ourselves in the most disgusting hotel, my friend and I were in the situation of having to find ourselves somewhere else to stay! It was 11pm and most places were fully booked. However, on Trivago we found this place that happened to have a room. We were very lucky to find this gem of a hotel! Ok, our... More

The Jenkins has been my go-to Bloomsbury hotel for years now. I love it's convenient location and quiet atmosphere. I was thrilled when I heard they had recently remodeled, because although charming the rooms were dated. The remodeling is complete and very lovely: our room had high ceilings with medallions and a chandelier, and the new en suite was very... More

We stayed during a whole weekend in a 3-people room. The size and cleanliness of the room was adequate and great for our purposes. Most important was the quality of the breakfast. Enough food to continue the day in London with energy. Great location close to King's Cross station. Totally worthy

Booked this hotel for a 4 night stay in order to look around London. Travelling by train so chose hotel near Euston Station and Jenkins Hotel fitted the bill as only 5 minutes walk away. Very good buffet hot breakfast included, clean rooms, friendly staff, and generally very well organised - all at a reasonable price. Some really good restaurants... More

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.
