Great apartment. Modern, comfortable and clean, with good quality fittings. We had the top floor flat (be careful if you don't like taking a lot of stairs!) which had plenty of room. Very well positioned with good local pubs and restaurants and within easy reach of the City, West End, etc. Can be a little noisy at night but just... More

I stayed here for 1 night pre exams in a single room. It was clean, modern, quiet and warm. There was a little kitchenette, study area and nice bathroom. The location was ideal, walking distance from St Pancras. The price was much less than many of the central London hotels, and the experience much more pleasant.

We had reserved for two couples asking to get two separates bedrooms as shown on their website. We got a sofa bed in the kitchen and one bedroom. No maid service to change towels once ou twice a week. We couldn't get in touch with somebody. The only positive point is the location.

Some good things, some areas that could be improved. But overall a great location and functional apartment. Location: Great, central to many of London's attractions. 10 min walk to nearest tube station. Would recommend a taxi from St Pancras/King's Cross if arriving with lots of luggage. Lots of great pubs, cafes close by. Highly recommend Grill Market around the corner... More

Booked for one night only , (luckily) , Upon arrival, and pushing door button, we were greeted by the brusque voice of the representative, I stated why we were there, and the reply was NAME !!. Not a good start, but having read other reviews was not suprised. !! We were then advised our room was on the top floor,... More

Booked a four night stay at 5 Doughty Street based on the nice reviews and reasonable price. However, upon arrival we were taken to another apartment, located some 10 minutes away, at Red Lion Street, where we apparently were to stay. On first sight, the apartment seemed fine, very new, with nice furnishing. However, when wanting to shower we discovered... More

Facilities are very good and the quality of furnishings. One bed apartment was a good size. Close to tube and buses. Recommend that a map showing where the main bus/tube lines are is included in a welcome pack and also some local taxi numbers. The price - but when you compare the facilities provided, this is comparable in London! I... More

Nice to have a place to feel 'at home' in London. Great one-bedroom flat opposite the Charles Dickens Museum and just around the corner from the British Museum, it is a well-put together place. I was lucky: ground floor with patio. Furnished by John Lewis' (nice change from IKEA). Only thing missing was a pair of scissors and a spaghetti... 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.
