Arrived at the Arran House Hotel after a 2 hour 30 minute train journey. Not overly long, granted, but glad to have arrived in London, safely, on my own. However, I could not have been more disappointed. The man on 'reception' (back kitchen area) was the most unfriendly, uncommunicative and unwelcoming person I have ever met. One of the first...

I stayed there for 5 nights with my family last summer. We liked it very much, it is a 5 min walk form the Goodge street tube station, and a few minutes more from Euston square. The room was clean and tidy. The breakfast was a full English breakfast, with a good choice of other food, such as fruit, cereal,... More

We had booked a triple room and upon arrival lat on Wednesday evening were surprised that the Triple en-suite room (Nr 18) on the first floor was little more than a neglected shoe box facing the busy main...

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.

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.
