What hotel in the world has a room in the basement? What hotel in the world has a 'Family' room in the basement? That's right - a hole of a hotel! We had a night to stay near King's cross with our 2 kids. Read few good reviews and booked - however we were put up in a room in... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in July whilst down in London for work. Naturally with work paying, I had to keep costs low and ended up paying £60 a night for a single room which included breakfast. Can't fault the location - a minute's walk to Kings Cross St Pancras Rail/Underground stations and by London standards, the price for... More

After trawling the net for a good 2 night deal 3 weeks prior to going we found this! We felt dubious due to some reviews but as we were going to London to be out all day long we only needed a hotel as a base we took a punt! Literally a 2mins walk from st pancras/kings cross so no... More

Great location – near to tube, good service – coffee facilities in the room and friendly staff. Free wi-fi and breakfast included in the room rate (yes, the breakfast area is relatively small, in the morning at 7.00AM it is ok, after it is not so easily to find free chair).

With no lift and lots of fire doors the small rooms in this Hotel are difficult to access . The breakfast room situated in the cellar is OK and the limited food range is adequate for a short stay . Unfortunately we had a problem with our check out due to the poor attitude of the elderly lady in reception... More

Very short walk from Kings Cross station, friendly and efficient greeting! Stayed in family room 9 and it was clean, comfortable and warm. Quiet neighbourhood opposite a park. I would stay here again.

Stayed here for a few nights on my way through London. The staff are reasonably friendly but the room was very tiny although was relatively quiet. It was also really hot at night. How people stay here in the heat of summer I do not know. The bathrooms were also shared and were OK. For breakfast you got cooked sausages... 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.
