The hotel is very close to everything you need to get to (tube station, buses, cafés, centre). The staff of the hotel is always very helpful and smiles :) The room is not like a oom in a five-star hotel but if you don't have very high expectation it's good for you. Breakfast in Bloomsbury is great and its staff... More

My husband and I stayed here for our last night in London after our other arranged lodging fell through. It's a huge challenge to find reasonably priced, reasonably comfortable lodging in central London and we chose St. Athans after scouring for the right balance of cheap and good reviews. Overall, we were content with the choice. Is it a bit... More

We had a very comfortable stay at St. Anthans. The hotel is in a good location, its clean and the staff are very helpful and friendly. We ended up staying there twice in 2 weeks and both trips were perfectly enjoyable. The cafe downstairs is great too-free range eggs and organic milk all the way!

I'm unsure why so many ppl give this hotel such a good review on this site. I went there the inside is a bit Victorian in decor for my taste. If you're looking for the sherlock holmes experience I could imagine myself in Victorian times. I asked for a single they gave me a double, no singles. A double room,... More

Thanks for your review - for although your stay wasn't up to expectations as shown in your title, most of the content is pretty fair and gives a good description of what the St. Athans is like, and actively trying to achieve. I'll go through the points to make things clearer for those reading about the St. Athans for the... More

This hotel is located very conveniently in London. The double room we got was clean but tiny, especially with luggage for 2 people. The (modernized) bathroom and toilet were half a floor below us, and even though the hallway and staircase were nice and warm there was NO HEAT in there! I tried to keep the door to the shower...

I like to thank the whole staff who gave us a wonderful short holiday into their place. Our room stood under the roof, so we had less noise from the road. We slept even good in spite of a three room bed. The staff always looked good according to our desire. The cafe in below the hotel was very ideal... More

A friend who has visited here for years recommended this spot and I'm so glad. I've stayed twice - once for over two weeks (they gave me a discount for the extended stay). It's not luxurious - no s/c rooms - but it's comfortable and clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the location is fantastic. Bring a robe... More
