Visited the hotel last weekend with my husband. This is our 5th visit and as always the hotel is wonderful. The staff are always so friendly and we checked in early no problem. The bar is somewhere to go to relax. We love this hotel.

Lovely hotel, we had a standard room but it had all the luxuries we needed and the room was clean and nicely decorated and the nespresso coffee machine was a welcome surprise. Only slight negative was that the bathroom was quite small but again it was very well presented and had all the extras like mini toiletries so size didn't... More

Booked the Bloomsbury hotel to spend the valentines weekend in London with my fiance and was not disappointed. Did some research before booking, as we have never stayed in London before and wanted a central location which was moderately priced with good TripAdvisor reviews. The Bloomsbury ticked all of the boxes. The hotel itself is in a fantastic location just... More

A wonderful champagne afternoon tea to celebrate joint 50th and 21st birthdays - much better than afternoon tea at Fortnums the week before!!. Excellent friendly service. Plenty of fresh sandwiches and cakes and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The 'free flowing champagne was certainly free flowing!! Thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon.

Stayed in the luxury suite of the Bloomsbury the night of Valentines with my husband. We arrive late after work and were really impressed by the spotless room, gorgeous bathroom and incredibly comfy bed. However at £400 a night we expected to be well looked after. After waiting on the phone whilst it rang out for 15 minutes someone eventually... More

Just had to write a review about my afternoon tea at The Bloomsbury Hotel. I wasn't sure what to expect - £35 for an unlimited Ridgeview Bloomsbury sparkling wine afternoon tea. I was extremely impressed - the sparkling wine was excellent and there was a huge selection of cakes. The sandwiches were not really to my taste, but there was... More

Picked the Bloomsbury for its ideal central location and was not disappointed. From the offer of warm towels on check in to the complimentary bottle of water on check out, the service and quality of the hotel room & food & service was excellent.

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.
