I am currently lying on the floor of my room, not 5 minutes of sleep. The first problem, tv does not work, we went to the front desk to let them know we could not find the remote, 2 employees came to look at it but could not get it working. There are four of us in the room, we... 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.

We booked this hotel online based on proximity to the station and the photos on their website. The rooms appeared to be spacious and clean and newly decorated according to their advertising. However on checking in, we discovered that our room was in the basement, we had to lug our own bags up AND down stairs to get there, the... More

I had a business trip in London and needed a hotel that was close to the station as I didn't want to drag my suitcase around London with me; the Jenkins Hotel allowed me to drop my suitcase off at 9am prior to official check in time. The reception staff were friendly & helpful. The room is small and clean,... More

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.
