Check in and check out quick, by very polite staff. I had bedroom at the back of hotel, it was so quiet I could not believe I was in central London, even with the window open. The curtains were so thick, preventing any light coming through. Bathroom very functional and clean. Not the biggest room, but not the smallest I... More

Had a two night stay at the Grange Clarendon. Firstly, upgrade to a fantastic large room at the rear of the hotel, so quiet for London - actually left the window open all night and didn't wake at all!! Lovely clean room, bathroom spotless, although the bath is rather high to get in and out of and I am not... More

The Grange Clarendon was a lovely place to stay. It is such a great location that we walked everywhere from here. It is close to restaurants, galleries, the British Museum, the Underground, and a short walk to Covent Garden. Our room was large, comfortable and very clean. We had the breakfast each day in a pleasant dining room.

I have stayed more than once at this hotel on work-related trips to London. It is located within walking distance of Holborn underground station. Check-in was quick and simple, with pleasant staff at reception. Rooms vary in size but have a reasonable-sized TV, comfortable bed and all usual amenities. Bathrooms are clean with a good shower over the bathtub. I... More

Well, trying to find a nice hotel in the center of London at a decent price is almost impossible. Either you pay a lot or you end up with brushing your teeth next to the guy you see for the first time in your life (and not necessary a handsome one!). Meaning an external bathroom so you'd better check before... More

Placed close to the British museum in London. It location is central making visiting all London has to offer easy and affordable. Great presentation of the lobby and rooms. Super comfy. Close to nearby cafes and pubs for cheaper meal options. Close to a lovely square for a bit of price of quiet which can be needed after a day... More

A very well located hotel in Bloomsbury, very near The British Museum and a 12 minute walk to Oxford Street. The room was well appointed and great bed. Had really nice food for dinner as room service and beautiful breakfast, nice courtyard overlooking a garden. Will be back!

Ideally located for trips to the British Museum. Small, but clean rooms, backed by helpful service at the front desk. The breakfast buffet exceeded my expections and the staff assisted with some dietary restrictions with ease. Recommended and would return, save that I try and explore a new area each time I return to London.

we had a lovely 2 night stay at this hotel, the rooms were comfortable and clean, the staff were attentive and polite and this was all just a stones throw from the British Museum. a short walk to any attraction the city offers or a fairly cheap taxi ride if you don't fancy walking. the only downside to the whole...

The location is excellent - right next to the British Museum, walking distance to Covent Garden, Oxford Street and Soho, and close to our UK office. And Holborn in general is a lovely part of town - quiet, but central and accessible. Fair enough it is central London but the room was very small - barely enough room to walk... 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.
