Stayed here for two nights with my [grown up] daughter. Bloomsbury area is an excellent location and staying here, you'd never know there was so much hustle and bustle just a street or two away. It was lovely and quiet, a real haven. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable, and breakfast was fine.

Stayed here in April. Chose it for its location only ten minutes walk from the Dominion Theatre. Our room was in the basement so there was no view, but we only needed the room to sleep and shower so it was ok. The breakfast was wonderful. So if you want somewhere central (near British Museum), it's ideal.

Immediately upon entering our room, we noticed how neat and nice everything was. While the room might be smaller than you might find at accommodations outside the London area, it was perfect for two people and wonderfully maintained. The breakfast served in the morning was filling and delicious- my first taste of a full English breakfast! The location was also... More

Not a good start when I arrived and was told abrubtly to wait to be booked in. However the room was big for a single (room 8) and the bed comfy although the bathroom was rather on the small side. Nice view from window and very quiet for central london apart from creaky floorboards. Lovely breakfast and friendly staff after... More

I now regard the Thanet as my home when I am in London! The atmosphere is warm and the ethos caring - the owners and staff are lovely. The bright flowers outside are so welcoming too, and you can admire them while eating your delicious breakfast.

Stayed here for six days with four grandchildren - three teenagers and one young adult. Had two three-person rooms. Hotel is located on quiet street in good neighborhood. Five to ten minute walk to British Museum and several tube stops. Rooms are comfortable and very clean. Many good ethnic restaurants nearby. Breakfast was great, with excellent service. Owners and employees... More

Stayed here in early August. It was a great place to stay for a family. We had one of the family rooms on the first floor which was convenient since there is no elevator to the upper floors. The room is small by American standards as is the bathroom but perfectly manageable and typical for smaller hotels in Europe. It... More
