I stayed here late March and should've done this review sooner. I found this hotel to be very conveniently located but was removed enough to have a nice and quiet sleep. Clean comfortable room with very helpful staff. I'll stay here again

I booked a room at the Kings cross hotel last minute due to a mix up with a hostel nearby. I'll start by saying I was only expecting a bed and thats about as good as it got. The drain in the shower didn't drain so it flooded within 3 minutes of running the shower, the room was cramped and... More

For what you pay for, this hotel is very lovely stay in with very friendly and helpful staff members. Only small problems such as the room size and slight mess you end up making with the shower as it leaks out. However, it was overall a pleasant stay for the short time my friends and I stayed and would recommend.

Room was disgusting - no bedside anything to even put the phone on for alarm. Bathroom was beyond filthy and freezing. The bedroom door lock was fragile and once I was in I was actually terrified to leave. First thing I did on getting to my room was look up laterooms.com to see if I could find ANYWHERE else to...

I have stayed in budget accommodation/hostels in the likes of Europe, Asia & Australia & have never come across something so bad - especially as it is meant to be a hotel!! The room was too small to actually fit me, my partner and our bags in the room. We changed rooms because of this but then missed out on... 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.
