Stayed here on business on what was probably the coldest night of the year. Hotel, and room, was pleasantly warm and inviting. Reception painless, room exactly as described, spotlessly clean, good size, kitchen area a nice touch, everything worked , no problem. My only gripe is why, when you have put a modem in each room, charge £10 a day... More

Part of a chain , as solo one night traveller, I wondered if I might be moved on to another hotel, as had happened before with the management of another hotel in the same street, but was lucky to stay put! This is a delightful hotel. Excellent size room, with big bathroom and also hidden away cooking area with sink... More

This is probably the best hotel at this price I have stayed in in London. Our room was clean and well furnished and the kitchenette with fridge, kettle and microwave a real bonus. It was a large, light and airy room with plenty of space and a good sized bathroom too. It was very quiet and peaceful and looked out... More

The breakfast was ok, it is accessible to streets with several affordable restaurants therefore can have lunch and dinner out. The rooms can get a bit warm in the summer but with the... More

Check in was a little slow but the receptionist was friendly. I was given an upgrade to a double room almost as a formality. The room was large with a kitchenette area. The room was very well furnished with a huge amount of storage space. The room and large bathroom were well equipped and spotless. The bed was comfortable but... More

This hotel is near the British museum (3 minute walk) and Oxford street (7 minutes walk). Though the room was in the basement! you would not have known as there was a large window which allowed plenty of light. The bathroom had 2 showers one over the bath and the other in the shower cubicle. The room not only had... More

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.
