If for a hotel you want a large chain establishment with all the facilities on site in a high rise building you may wish to look elsewhere. The Grange Portland is unusual because it is part of 5 very similar hotels in an once residential street. It is very central and really close to the British Museum. Despite this the... More

I stayed in Portland and Grange Clarendon (same street, same chain of hotels) again and have even booked them already for my next trips to London this year. Perfect location (center but not noisy), spacious, clean rooms and and a very cosy interior - that does not make you feel that you are on a business trip but rather came... More

My wife and I stayed for 6 nights in May. We were familiar with the neighborhood but had not stayed here before. Nice location on a fairly quiet street, between Bloomsbury Square Park and Russell Square Park. We were very pleased with our stay, and especially the accommodations and staff. We reserved a mid-range studio. Great size room on second... More

I stay in this hotel and the other 3 in the same street owned by Grange on a regular basis for business. The rooms are clean and generally very large. They are converted houses so there are some idiosyncrasies in the way the layouts run, but that gives them charm. There is no real bar in the hotel so you... More

We stayed here for one night on 8-11-14 and it is a superb hotel! The staff are so kind and attentive, in both the portland and the neighbouring hotel (Clarendon) where we had our breakfast. It is a lovely hotel! The room was extremely spacious, with kitchenette included and the bed was more than big enough for me and my... More

I stayed at The Portland for 6 nights. The location was perfect with access to 4 tube stations and also buses. It was about a block and a half from the British Museum and within walking distance of the British Library, theaters and the Royal Opera House where I went to a ballet. My room was large and had a...

Location was good, near oxford street and Bloomsbury. But hotel was not really up to date. We had a superior room on the ground floor but it was so noisy due to single pane windows. There was no where to park so had to pay for parking in an under ground car park which cost £60 for 2 nights. We... More

Spacious, comfortable room on the third floor, very quiet overnight. Impressive wi-fi connection was offered free of charge. Extremely helpful staff. Breakfast served in The Clarendon, next door, was very good though would be inconvenient in bad weather. The group, Grange hotels, are extremely accommodating and have just amended my next booking with no fuss.
