Top points for its vicinity to the public transport (bus, metro, train). Cannot be any better. Clean room, spacious lobby. Will definitely return again. Breakfast area is cramp with only 4 tables, served by a grim dinner lady. However, she did her job well.

After reading some reviews on here I was a little apprehensive. I booked the hotel as I was catching an early eurostar. Apprehension was unfounded..room was small (as expected) but clean, comfy bed and warm, shared bathroom was ok felt a bit hostel like but was clean, shower was hot and no water pressure issues as others have mentioned. Quiet... More

Room and shower were small but clean and comfortable enough. Everything worked fine, rather new sanitary installations. WiFi connection even excellent! Friendly and helpful staff. Only minus: room very warm

Perhaps I didn't read the reviews correctly, but I thought this place was well ranked... The room is a tiny box. More Youth Hostel than hotel. I can only speak for room 15 - it's a small as can be, literally just enough room by the bed to turn around, on all sides. The shower room is the same -... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights The room rate was very reasonable considering the location. Buses, trains and underground just two minutes away. On arrival a helpful member of staff carried our bags to our room on the second floor. This was the only downside (no lift) The room was small but had twin beds, and was adequate.... More

Stayed overnight at this hotel. It is basic but very clean and was ideal for our stay. The breakfast was good and the staff were very helpful. The location is perfect and just across the road from Kings Cross. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Needing a low cost hotel at short notice, with my usual judicious reading of Trip Advisor reviews I booked the last room in Central: Convenient to Euston and Kings Cross with on road car parking overnight, this is a great little place to stay. Anyone saying that it was dirty or having other issues must be a competitor or have... More

Good hotel for a no thrills cheap night. We went, 8 lads, to London to watch the rugby at twickenham and it was perfect for a cheap over night stay. Clean, tidy & polite staff. Would recommend this hotel as it's location is great and breakfast is included.

In the morning there isn't enough water for every room to take a shower, also when you have your own private shower. The reception didn't ask a lot, not even when we leave the hotel and give our keus back. When you speak to them there kindly. The breakfast is bad. The englisch breakfast isn't tastfull and there is hardly... 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.
