Okay, I'll start with the few minor issues with this hotel... There is no lift, so you need to make sure you request a ground floor room if you struggle with stairs. The breakfast room is fairly small, when the hotel is fully booked, I can imagine there are issues there. That is literally it. The breakfast was beautiful, the... More

We stayed in this Bloomsbury hotel for a birthday weekend. We'll use it again if we are in the capital. This is more or less opposite the British Museum and within a 10 to 15 minute stroll of the West End theatres. Oxford Street is close by. The position is handy for everything - we walked from Waterloo station as... More

Having stayed on Gower Street previously and been unimpressed by other establishments I decided to book the Staunton due to the good reviews I have read. Upon arrival everything looked quite impressive, the receptionist was very friendly and helpful when we checked in. Our room was on the first floor and very spacious as I had booked a quad room...

My wife and I stayed here for one night for our anniversary over Christmas. The room was fine and the full breakfast was very nice. You can help yourself to cereals and juices also. The breakfast room is not massive, so you may have to wait if you arrive later. We watched a show at the Phoenix theatre, which was... More

My wife and I stayed for one night in December and found the hotel very pleasant. The room was warm, welcoming and clean ...although it was up 3 flights of stairs which was hard work after walking around London all day! Breakfast was a choice of Continental or Full English, we both chose Full English and really enjoyed it. The... More

The Staunton was one of the most reasonably priced hotels in the area. Of course, being in London, it was ridiculously expensive, but it provided decent value in comparison to other hotels in Bloomsbury. The location was great...only about a block from the British Museum and about 3 blocks for two different Tube stops. It's an "old school" hotel with... More

This is a charming small hotel. However in my mind, it is quite expensive, compared to what you get with the money. The room was quite cozy, large for London terms and quiet, but it was in the second floor in an old town house with no elevator. The minibar was quite large in selection, but was not filled for...

Nice break in this hotel. It is small so more like a good bed and breakfast. Staff helpful and all problems were sorted out quickly. Great location near theatre land and close to kings cross station. Breakfast room small and can get busy.

I stayed here for three nights from June 23rd to the 25th. There is only one issue with the Staunton and I found out what it was as soon as I walked in, there is no elevator. The woman working the front desk was very polite about it and normally it wouldn't be a big deal but I was there... 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.
