Really disappointed with the hotel as I booked this for my girlfriend's birthday, paying a lot of money for what I was told was a 4-star hotel. The hotel was very dated and worn and our room was terrible. There were huge cracks in the plaster in the walls and ceiling, the main door looked very insecure and the lock... More

The rooms was extremely small (2m by 3m) and the bathroom was carved from this surface so the room got even smaller and you were just barely able to walk in it. A lot of dust everywhere I had to do some extra cleaning by myself. The shower is small and crammed and it doesn't even have a shelf to... More

The tiny single rooms are more cramped than a prison cell. There's literally no legroom in the bathroom, the sink is just a bit larger than a cereal bowl and the shower is half-clogged. The overall cleanliness is unsatisfactory. The Wi-Fi connectivity fluctuates a lot. If this "hotel" is ranked 4 (four!!!) stars in London, then the accomodation standards in... More

My friends and I weren't totally convinced by the photos when we booked, but needed somewhere for a short stay at short notice. The room was actually quite big and bright and surprisingly cheerful. The triple room only had a double bed and a pull out sofa (not the comfiest) but wasn't altogether terrible. The bathroom seemed fairly new and... More

Let's get the few positives dealt with first. The guy at reception was pleasant and the wifi worked. It stops there. The room was so tiny that I could turn the main light off and be in bed before it got dark. There was an old fireplace which was probably damaged during the blitz and hasn't been repaired since!! I... More

Because you'll be more comfortable there. Oh, and make sure when you book to pay the extra to enable you to cancel after you back out of the hotel. If not they will keep your money for the whole time that you've booked. Poor communications and a manager who will avoid you at all costs. Rooms are not clean so... More

To be honest, I never experience a hotel with a room like this. The floor was not level, the furniture is stable. The room is so small and it cost me £100 a night. It's just ridiculous, I'm sure there are much better hotel round with the same price or even. However, staff are friendly and nice breakfast.

We stayed over the weekend and found the hotel conveniently placed for our needs. The staff were particularly helpful, friendly and approachable. When we have stayed in other hotels in London this has not been the case. We used the car park next to the Hotel and on our journey home when we got in the car there was a... More

I stayed with my son, and when I asked for a room with two separate beds, I was immediately upgraded at no extra cost. The room was warm and comfortable, plentiful supplies of tea bags/coffee/milk/biscuits, renewed daily. There was a good supply of clean towels, changed daily, and an excellent power shower. The room was cleaned daily and beds made.... More

I have to admit I was apprehensive about our stay here having read the reviews on TI (the ones on booking.com were more positive) but to echo the feelings of the last reviewer it really wasn't so bad. Ok it could all do with a lick of paint but our room was fine. It was clean, tidy and had everything... 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.
