The location of the hotel is great, just a few minutes away from the tube. The room, although minuscule, had everything necessary and was not too dirty as compared to the standard of the city. However, my stay has been very uncomfortable. The bed was excessively soft, the walls so thin I could hear every movement and noise in the... More

Have you ever been camping? Its a cost effective way to enjoy some time with nature. Sure it stinks, you don't get a decent sleep, a decent shower, access to the internet, access to electricity, or basic comfort, but hey, you get to be close to nature and try something different. This hotel is essentially the same as camping, except... More

We used this hotel for an over night stop before travelling on Euro Star. It is a short walk from the station and tube and is in a good location. The hotel is clean but has no frills, which was fine for us. Breakfast was of a reasonable standard. The room was small, but clean the bed was ok for... More

Stayed here for 2 nights 20th-20th December with a friend to visit winter wonderland, the shard & to do some shopping. 2 females aged 22/23. Was apprehensive to visit here at first because of some of the reviews on here! We paid £165 and I thought this was value for money! Especially when they feed you breakfast. ROOM: we had... More

Room and Bathroom was clean. Double room was very small, only enough space to walk around the bed. Whilst I do appreciate price is at the lower end simple things like hanging curtains which are falling down would not be much to ask. No Tea making facilities in room. Receptionist was very pleasant but unfortunately I found the staff who... More

Stayed one night on B&B. Ideally situated for Kings cross station, straight across the road. The hotel was clean not plush but didn't expect it to be for the price. Breakfast was lovely and plenty of it. Staff very friendly and helpful. They stored out suitcases until it was time for the train so we could go site seeing. Would... 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.
