The Arran House Hotel is located in the very heart of Bloomsbury, in front of the University College of London and just a stroll from the nearest underground station: an ideal location for visiting London. The building is a nice and traditional attached house. Apart from that, little else to report: the room where I spent some days was a... More

Had an excellent stay at Arran House from 1-4 June 2015. The location is great, a 5 min stroll from the Goodge St Station. Facilities are a little old but I had a recently refurbished basement room with ensuite bathroom. It was small but clean and homey for 1 person, Safe neighbourhood close enough to Oxford Street, and had plenty... More

Great location near to underground and Oxford street shopping district. Little bit older, vintage rooms but clean. Enough space for 4-bed apartment. Breakfast was OK for 3* hotel, but nothing special. Nice staff. Poor wifi.

After two weeks in Europe in similarly priced hotels, this one is utterly horrid. Not sure how it can call itself a hotel - it is just a glorified backpackers and I've stayed in nice backpackers. The room is tiny - my one number 19 faced the very noisy street and it was impossible to have the window open. Fortunately... More

We had a fine stay here in June. I think the breakfast was above average--lot of hot and cold selections. The room was very quiet. The bathroom was so tiny that I banged both elbows trying to turn around, but I thought it was a treat just to have a private bathroom in our room, so I have nothing to... More

Lovely little hotel, nice and friendly staff and a very good english breakfast. We stayed five nights i march -15 and are very pleased. Close to chinatown and lots of fun but quiet and nice. Our room was a little small but comfortably.

May 2015. Three nights at the hotel at room 15. Terrible itching as a result. On the last day I discover the culprits in the mattress - bedbugs. Staff is kind but wouldn't acknowledge the problem. Other visitors have already pointed out the problem. Avoid the hotel.

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 stayed 4 nights at the Arran House Hotel over the Easter break with two adults and a nine year old child. 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...

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.
