The staff here could teach a thing or two to the bigger hotels in the area. Room had a shared bathroom but that was made clear on booking and basin in the room was therefore a bonus. Nice breakfast included in the price which makes this a real bargain. Why pay double or more elsewhere if you are only staying... More

When I booked this room for a short two day stay in London, I was first a bit leery because I couldn't find it on trip advisor… and who books anything without trip advisor!!! There are other Ruskin Hotels, but somehow I didn't find this until now. I booked pretty last minute (within 2 days), and the price for the... More

This hotel is located in the heart of London, across the street from the British Museum and a quick 10 minute walk from the Russell Tube station. Being so close to this tube stop allows you to be at any of the landmark tourist attractions in no time at all. Also, there are shops, restaurants, and a Tesco Market near... More

Really lovely family run place. Great value considering the location. Very helpful and accommodating staff. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone travelling to London either frequently or for the first time

My daughter and I spent two wonderful weeks with the Ruskin B&B as our main base, while we traveled to outlying destinations periodically. Located directly across from the British Museum, with two great relaxing shady parks at either end of the street, it was infinitely convenient to everything in London. Our transportation to everywhere we wanted to go was right... More

The hotel has really good location, it's next to the British Museum. It's situated in tradicional victorian house and it's quite nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. Only breakfast was a bit monotonous but that's probably normal in England.

First the bad: While we gave 6 days notice that we had to cancel our last night, we were refunded only 80 of our 130 pounds for our family room. The lift was out our entire 5 night stay, and it seems to have been so for a while. Finally, while our reservation indicated that toiletries were provided, they weren't,... More

What a find! We spent literally hours trawling the net for somewhere to stay without being ripped off. Located only 5 mins walk from Russell Square tube, is this superb B&B which has recently been refurbished. Our double en suite room was compact but clean, fresh and very comfortable. It didn't have a tv (big lounge downstairs with huge tv)... More

Last minute booking, read reviews, most are spot on. Our room on ground floor had a huge window looked out over a garden with green parrots in the trees! After 4 days in paris looking at scaffolding in an air shaft for 3x the price this was a welcome surprise! Location just cannot be beat, near 2ntube stops, between russell... More

We booked a room here on a spur of the moment decision to stay overnight and we weren't disappointed. Compact but clean rooms, brand new shower room and a great breakfast in the morning with exceptional service. We'll definitely stay here again

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.
