The location is excellent and within walking distance of the tube. The British museum is across the street. But there is no tv in the rooms and you share 2 toilets with all the other rooms on the floor. There is 1 shower but no soap or small hand towels. Expensive for what you get. The staff is helpful and... More

We stopped here as a last minute stop the staff are lovely the rooms really clean and the breakfast lovely, would stay here again. The only downside I can think of is that the bathrooms are shared bathrooms but this did not affect anything and again these were clean

Came up with a friend to have a good time out in London, we did just that. Hotel is so easy to get to and from. Everything is local. The hotel itself is pretty dated and stale, but the rooms are bargain, staff is friendly and it's generally clean. Would recommend to anyone doing a 1-nighter after a night out,... More

We have been staying at the Ruskin for some 40 years and it serves us well for visits to London for the opera and ballet, conveniently situated near the British Museum , the ROH and other theatres. Rooms clean and comfortable, pleasant breakfast and friendly staff

We wanted a cheap but decent hotel in the centre of London's attractions and that's just what we got! We stayed three nights - the staff were all VERY welcoming and helpful - room was sparse but VERY clean and tidy. 15 min walk from Euston train station, next to British Museum, 10 min walk to Covent Garden, 20 min...

Good location, nice quiet street, friendly staff. Elevator malfunctioning, maybe fixed later. Breakfast quite generous but standard. Rooms small and basically equiped. Beds comfortable but small. We had a family room with private bath. Suppose rooms with common bath may be less satisfying.

I booked this at short notice to stay after a friend's big party near Euston and wouldn't stay again if I had a choice. It's functional and clean but a bit shabby (the communal areas) and lacking in any charm or sense of character. My room was clean and the bed fairly comfortable but there were no spare duvets or...

Got this hotel off Booking.com for only fifty nine pounds. Considering it's within walking distance of the West End it was remarkable value. The room was very clean and the staff were very friendly so all things considered it was excellent value

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.
