We stayed here for one night when we went to see Les miserables, 30 min walk to Leicester Square area or just down the road from Russell Square tube station. We stayed in the basement room which wasn't luxury but was pleasant enough. The window didn't open so the room was very warm and we could hear the tube trains... More

Start on a positive. The staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful. That's were the positives end I'm afraid. This hotel is in serious need of renovation to bring it back to how it used to look in the photos. I booked a 3 night stay on Booking.com and only stayed one night in the basement.

Booked 25-27th July 2015. Pulled the window curtain back to find the window looking out onto a concrete wall and a door which was the hotel kitchen. So early 6.30am each morning the staff are preparing breakfast, cleaning, filling buckets talking and generally doing there job, oblivious to people sleeping outside their door. VERY NOISY!! VERY STUFFY!! We never ate... More

Very small hotel with very small rooms. No elevator and very narrow stairs. It's noisy and staff are not helpful. My bathroom ran out hot water on October one day and the staff couldn't do anything until the next day and. Wifi is so bad.

Perfectly sited for euston and kings cross st pancras if ok with 7-10 minute walk. Ideal for Bloomsbury shops bars and restaurants. Have stayed here twice now and pleased with courtesy of staff as well as room service. Feels safe. Would return

Room was not cleaned, found bugs. The breakfast was good enough, but serverd only until 9.30 AM. The hotel needs to be renovated and the location is a bit off. It still is not cheap, maybe to London prices, and we expected more.

Though the hotel room is slightly smaller, it is clean and well decorated. The front desk staffs were very helpful and cheery. The location was very good as it is a short walk away from King's Cross and Russell Square.The British Museum (one of my favourite museum) is 15 mins walk away from the hotel.

The Leigh House has become one of my go to hotels while staying in London. I first stayed when they had just renovated about 4 -5 years ago and at the time if felt like a small boutique hotel. I just stayed again for a couple of nights and it still is one of the better priced hotels to stay... More

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.
