This is a good place to stay in London. The location is great, the price is right. As for the hotel, it is clean, has breakfast, WiFi and a very friendly staff. Both of the rooms I booked for my family to stay in were clean and one of the rooms was on the ground floor as I informed the... More

I stayed in this hotel with my daughter for one night and I chose it because of its proximity to Saint Pancras station and because I wanted a triple room (in case my son stayed with us also). The room was a bit dingy (light came from a window in a kind of "tunnel" between buildings and the Tube could... More

This place made me feel like I was on holiday. Like I was 18 again. Like I was backpacking. Like I had paid £10 for a night in the room. Except, I am not 18, I am not backpacking, I am not on holiday and we paid much, much, MUCH more for the room. The shower was horrible, the spare... More

Great Location, moments from Kings Cross Station. Friendly staff, amd spotlessly clean room with modern fittings and free wifi. The room was a little small, but this is Central London. Would certainly recommend this hotel as a convenient crashpad for anyone staying in London on a budget. Staff were all veery friendly, and there was a good cooked breakfast included... More

This hotel is a 2 minute walk from Kings Cross station. The staff were friendly and the hotel is spotless. For the location and cost this really is value for money. The breakfast is included and was again ideal to start the day.

The hostel is close to Kensington gardens and a tube station. There are also lots of restaurants and markets nearby. The hostel is a 30 mins walk from oxford street. I have tried different rooms in this hostel. Room 8 is the best. So, I am telling my experience in Room 8. The room has 6 beds. all beds are... More

Stayed here for 11 nights with my sister and we are both very satisfied. The location is great, there are busses, underground, national & international railservice reached within a few minutes. The personal is also very friendly and the breakfast was good as well. There's also free Wifi which has a very good connection even in the 2nd Floor.

Room was small but comfortable, good amenities. There was an issue with water supply but this was NOT the hotels fault. Contractors were actually digging the road up while we were staying there. All staff were friendly and helpful. Excellent value considering it's handy location for the major stations. Also good transport links for getting around London.

Great location,, if you are looking for a place to just spend the night then this is the place...Room that we stayed was clean and tidy. Staff were kind and helpful. Specially two ladies who served us during the B'fast. Not suitable for elderly or disable travelers.

Superb location if you plan to hit the London high Spots and take the Eurostar to Paris to do the same. Otherwise nah. This is a hotel to be avoided at all costs by the elderly or disabled. It's probably ok for backpackers and the young. The rooms are cramped beyond the wildest expectations of even died-in-the wool 2 star... 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.
