We initially booked this hotel for early jan but due to the weather condition had to modify our booking and the fare was more expensive. I did receive a confirmation by email and when i called 2days prior our arriving, they told me there was no booking made for these days. Anyway, after investigating, they later wrote back to me...

Our stay was pleasant , the room (on the 8th floor-smoking) was spacious but a bit dark. The location of the hotel is excellent. We were surprised by the breakfast - thank God we got english breakfast cause the continenantal was rather poor . Room service was very good , try the afternoon tea - worth it

However we were disatissfied by the cold manner of the reception staff. On checking in, one receptionist was on the phone to her bank checking her account in full view of guests. The lady who...

We have stayed here before and were impressed, however after the last stay just before Christmas I think we’ll be going elsewhere in future. The room had been booked for 2 months and was lovely – even if the view was just down one of the tiny side streets. We had trudged up from Southwark in torrential sleet so we... More

We booked a deluxe and while the room was decorated lovely we felt it was very small for a deluxe room in general. Would hate to see a standard size room! It was advertised on their website as a totally different room and a lot bigger. The bathroom was very cold with no means of heating it. In general our... More

We stayed at this hotel for our anniversary - absolutely loved the room; very cosy and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was absolutely great...eveything was practically 5-10 minutes away so we has no problems getting anywhere. Restaurants and bars were nearby too. Room service was also great, food was nice. There were a few hiccups... More

Wow!!!!! Just got back from spending a few days at the Bloomsbury Hotel on Great Russell Street and have landed back to earth with a rather large bump.

The hotel is ideal for walking to covent garden, shaftesbury ave etc. We stayed for one night and paid £133 plus VAT for a double room. The room was nice and clean but quite dark. There was tea/coffee making facilities, bath and shower. There is a nice bar and restaurant, large lobby area where you can order drinks etc. when... 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. 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.
