My husband and I stayed here for two nights. It's definitely difficult to find a reasonably priced room in London, so we weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised. First, the location is excellent, just a few minutes walk from Kings Cross Station. Attractions in the Westminster area are just a few stops away on the Underground, so it's very... More

Smelly room, tired decoration, uncomfortable small bed, and they charge 'strictly' in advance. It has the air an attitude of an old soviet era camp in Siberia, and I type this on my phone, as I wait in line for my breakfast (there are not enough tables for everyone, apparently). Avoid at all cost.

The Hotel Meridiana is one of the many small, basic hotels in the square opposite Kings Cross. My room was tiny, but the bed was comfortable, there was no street noise due to the location on the square, the shower worked, and breakfast was adequate and quick. Everything I want from a cheap hotel.

The hotel is located conveniently by King's Cross station and a lot of eateries in the area. The hotel is yes down an alley way, but we never felt not safe and as... More

Excellent location for this friendly, cosy and affordable hotel. Literally minutes away on foot to King's Cross Station. The room was small, but cosy and mostly clean and well presented. Hotel staff very helpful and friendly. Definitely great value for money.

I spent two nights at the Meridiana in February, and had a very pleasant stay. I booked a small single room at a very good rate, with English breakfast included (OK but basic), but the best part was how clean the room, bathroom and shared toilet were. The location is also a major plus as its only minutes from the... More

This is an ideal hotel if you want to be next to the trains and underground, ideal if you are visiting London. We had a family room which was of adequate size for me, my husband and 2 teenage sons. The shower room/toilet sink area was big enough for one person to do the necessary. The rooms where cleaned daily... More

Chose the hotel due to its position and I made the RIGHT choice, not only for its position, but also for the great assistance from the front desk, Edward, so so helpful. Rooms are just right, the bathroom are normal for the old London houses. Everyhting was clean, breakfast was great. Couldn't ask for anything more. Will be back. Thanks... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
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.
