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

There were some good things, honestly! The lovely ladies at breakfast were really helpful and attentive. The room was very clean and the receptionist on the desk was very friendly. Sadly, there it ends! I booked this hotel after viewing its website. It's in a lovely area, which of course can't be faulted, and looked to be beautifully appointed and... More

Had a lovely stay at the Jenkins hotel. Room was nice a clean, and bed was extremely comfortable. Was impressed with the bathroom and shower facilities. The hotel is ideal situated and was great value for money. Free WIFI was a massive bonus.

Second time staying at Jenkins Hotel. I very much like the location. even with extensive demolition work on the other side of Cartwright Square it's great to be on the Square. Just off Euston Rd and so quiet. The ambience of the hotel is great. I liked the eccentricity of staying in one building and going over to the Judd... More

So this hotel looks so nice. The room we had was on the fourth floor (no lift) of a Georgian Terrace. Room was small but did have an en-suite, TV, AC and tea/coffee facilities. The Wifi did not work which was annoying as we were not forewarned. As we were so high up we were not bothered by other guests... More

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

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
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.
