If you plan on staying at this "hotel" you must be aware that the service does not live up to hotel standards. Although the room was relatively clean, the access to bath and toilet facilities were across the corridor and there were no sink in relation to the toilets so you are not able to wash your hands. The sink... More

Im not one to criticise usually but this place is awful. When I booked I had no idea that the facilities were shared or I would not have booked. They need to make this more clear on their website. The staff were rude uncommunicative and did not speak English! The room was extremely dated, very shabby, wallpaper peeling off wall... More

Sharing the bathrooms and showers with others was fine as they are individual locked rooms and i never actually saw anyone else. Clean and linens provided. I was on the third floor facing the street and if you're a light sleeper - don't count on much sleep. Loud traffic noise outside and louder with an open window necessary to keep... More

The room was hotter than the sun. Even with the window open it was uncomfortably hot and I couldn't wait to get outside in the morning. The bunk bed was surprising comfortable though. Breakfast was fairly rough but the haddock in milk was to die for. A must try. All things considered though I paid £30 to stay in the... More

This hotel is very cheap compared to the hotels around it. Although the furniture and rooms are very dated, the rooms, bathrooms and public areas were kept very clean and tidy. The location was perfect. Five mins from Kings Cross and twenty minutes walk to Covent Garden/Oxford Street. Also Euston station and underground is literally over the road. The breakfast... More

We stayed 3 nights at the hotel. We booked a double room but got a small room with 2 separate beds. The room was L-shaped so we couldn't even see each other when we were in bed. But apparently the hotel staff told us that that type of room was the ones they had a contract with with our tour... More

I booked this hotel as part of a city break deal with Superbreaks. I'd never heard of it before but the location was excellent and past reviews looked positive enough. However, I really did not enjoy my stay here. The hotel reception is shabby and has an overwhelming smell, which I think comes from the very worn and unclean carpet.... More

Hotels in the central zone of London are famously expensive...the County is an exception, Rooms are small and not en suite but have tv, wash basin, towels, and coffee making facilities. Plenty of bathrooms close to rooms. Huge breakfast, staff are friendly, the place is clean if a little shabby in places. Wifi only in the foyer , For a... 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.
