Arrived for an overnight stay - check in good and swift. Room allocated on 3rd floor so a bit of a climb! Nice room, very comfy bed and excellent bathroom with a lovely shower. Quite hot but we had a fan and left the window open. Very central location - we always stay in this area as it is so... More

Do not stay there! We booked this hotel in May to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary and stayed there from 11th to 12th August. What a disappointment. We had the smallest , hottest room on earth! The air conditioning unit was very noisy and needed the window open to work . We were in the basement , the outlook was... More

Tiny room but clean and had everything necessary for a one night stay. Staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms could do with better ventilation on a summers night. Overall this is average for the cost, the area is full of similar hotels and this is one of the better ones in this price bracket.

I booked a single room for a weekend, and I've never seen a smaller room in my life! I had 1 tiny cabin luggage with me, and there I had to either put it on the floor and block the room door, or put it on the floor to block the bathroom door. I'm 5'10 / 177cm and my feet... More

This is reasonably priced hotel in good location, within easy walking distance of leichester square, oxford road (10 mins walk) and the tube (5 mins). The rooms are basic, my main complaint would be that there is NO storage, no drawers or wardrobe, just 2 coat pegs in the basement room (LG5) we were given. The remote for the TV... More

The worst hotel I have ever stayed in, even hotels in 3rd world countries have been better. Paint falling off the wall, cobwebs, dirty sheets. Bad hotel staff. more like a -4 star hotel. Don't go!!!!!

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.
