Close to St Pancras/Kings Cross, Argyle Square quite attractive. Rooms very small but clean. But management needs to check rooms daily, in our room safe didn't work, TV lost the satellite picture after 20/30 minutes, light over mirror didn't work, no plug in wash basin. I don't suppose it is part of a cleaner's job to check these things daily... More

This hotel has many positive points. It was very good value for money and the central location was very convenient. The hotel stood out as being quite stylish and modern, though perhaps not to everyone's taste. The rooms were very clean and although it was small, that is to be expected in central London budget hotels. The negative points were... More

I stayed at Albion House on a business trip for a couple of nights from 27th April. Service and cleanliness were first class. Check in was efficient and I was very quickly in my room. I had read the reviews about the size of rooms so had upgraded to superior double. This is still a very small room and is... More

I was a little nervous coming here after the reviews but it wasn't a bad experience. Room was tiny (small double) but most importantly clean. Shower in bathroom had the cover of the drain on the floor missing but otherwise it was nice and bed was comfortable and clean and everything was as it should be. Wasn't too noisy at... More

Checked in at the main reception which was lovely and very modern in decor. We were walked a few doors down to the Excelisor house. Our room was number 21 on the first floor so luckily only had to walk one flight as there appeared to be no lift service. Room was very pokey. We'd paid for a superior double... More

I made a reservation in the hotel. The reception is actually in another building. Nicely decorated. Good first impression. Upon arrival i was informed that my room was not available due to problems with heating / electricity. I was offered a room in a neighbourhood hotel (European House). A place clearly inferior to the standard of the Albion ( old,... More

This is not a negative review. If nothing else our visit to this establishment has taught us to be more thorough before we book. The hotel does what it states it is there for. It provides budget rooms at a budget price. They are clean, well decorated and functional. Be aware there are no lifts if stairs are an issue.... More

We wanted to do London on a budget, this fitted the bill perfectly, the rooms are quite small but we expected that, bathroom adequate, bed comfortable and there was enough clothing space.

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.
