Stayed for 2 nights in February, we arrived early into London and headed straight to the hotel, the rooms were not ready but they gave us a room to store the bags, offered us a hot drink and use of the bathroom before giving us a map of London. The staff were extremely helpful throughout our stay and nothing was... More

I was given a quiet double room ensuite which I found to be clean ,with a TV and tea making tray.the room was basic but fit for... More

After having come to the Arran House for many years, I was sadly disappointed about the state of the place on my most recent visit (May 2013) ... after the place was sold by the previous owners. While the location obviously remains central and handy, the rooms and the service have suffered from the hotel's new ownership. One of the... More

Being a short walk from West End and price charged, I had reservations about quality of hotel. We were pleasantly surprised. staff very helpful, room clean and good value breakfast. We knew there was no en-suite, but they were kept clean and more than adequate. Would recommend and use this hotel again.

Well located for a visit to the city. Rooms were clean and comfortable, albeit they could do with a lick of paint, but were more than adequate. Staff were friendly and the breakfast provided was good and plentiful. This is a budget hotel and we would be happy to use it again.

I'm quite sure that they will respond saying I could have read their T&Cs, but I think that misses the point. I was booked into this hotel for less than 150 seconds, before cancelling it after I found out my colleagues were staying elsewhere. Their cancellation policy varies room to room, so it wasn't until after I had returned home... More

This is an ideal base for a short city break. I stayed one night in an ensuite single room. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean, there were 4 good size towels just for me. The room was quite small but totally adequate with a tv and tea making facility. There was no noise within the hotel during the night... More

This is a well-located, clean, friendly and budget-friendly hotel that is priced competitively for its offering. Ignore any grudging reviews. Rooms have either small ensuite bathrooms or shared facilities of which there is ample provision throughout the 36 room hotel. We were on the top floor in a family quad room with a window looking out onto a quiet street.... More

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.
