My wife and I spent 3 nights at the Bloomsbury and were very impressed. The room was a nice size, the bathroom was great and all was very clean. All of the staff we dealt with were very friendly and attentive. The hotel is in a great location for London sites, theatre and shopping.

The rooms were 1st class we had a standard double it looked like a suite. The bar in the basement was quite discreet with the low lights and chilled ambience. And... More

Although we only stayed one night the experience was first class and I've no doubt we will return. Staff are welcoming, helpful and friendly. The choice for breakfast was varied beautifully cooked and presented. Our room was spacious, well appointed and very comfortable. The hotel is ideally placed for access to the West End and Oxford Street. You weren't hurried... More

The hotel was a couple of blocks from the Undergroud and the British Museum. It was a pleasure to return every evening to the welcoming staff and charming hotel. The rooms were a little small but very attractive and very well appointed. We will definitely return.

Just got back from a 4 night stay and cannot say enough. From the moment you arrive the staff cannot be more helpful. The lobby is like entering the living room of an old friend, welcoming and inviting. The design and attention to detail did not go unnoticed. The rooms are large well-appointed and the beds are extremely comfortable. The... More

We stayed at The Bloomsbury for the Saturday night and absolutley loved it. I travelled with my fiance and our toddler (17 months old) and was made to feel so welcomed. I upgraded our room to a superior room and when we arrived it had a lovely wooden cot with a Johnsons pack of essential baby items and a teddy... More

We arrived from Hong Kong @ 0830 after a 12.5 hour flight and whilst we were not scheduled to Check-in until 1400 that afternoon, the Reservations Staff did a marvellous job of assessing the hotels room availability so we could check in early. Thanks to them we had a fantastic shower after which we relaxed & generally "got our bearings"... More
