The staff is what makes this place great! You are taken in charge from beginning to end. If you arrive early and your room is ready, they'll let you check in. The rooms are very tiny, cramped and the ones facing the street unfortunately are very noisy. The windows do not have double glazing. Tavistock Place is a main thoroughfare... More

St Athans Hotel is located outside the city centre however it is just around the corner from the Russel Square tube station and it only takes about 10 minutes to get to the centre; it is also very close to the Kings Cross Train Station. The staff were all very friendly and the room was very well kept and cleaned... More

The rooms are very basic, but they are clean and the hotel is exceptionally well placed. It is probably the cheapest in Bloomsbury! There's also an excellent cofffee shop which serves first rate (and healthy) breakfasts from 8h30 most days.

The stairs and doorways are very narrow and make it diffucult to move alle the way to the third floor with suitcases! Staff is not friendlier than they have to be.. Positive: good location near the underground, clean room.

Perfect for a short term stay. The bathroom and and the shower are shared with the other guests. Furthermore the café placed in the basement has nice breakfast and it's not too expansive. The hotel is placed in great area, since it's 5 mins walk from Russell square tube station and 10 from euston tube st. Moreover the bourough is... More

Mom, Dad and me shared a triple room here in late August. The room is a slightly small one, but very clean and superbly located. The staff was very kind and helped out all the time. The restrooms are shared but there are plenty, so you don't really feel that you don't have a private restroom. I paid around 380... More

Hotel is clean and very simple. The beds are small so are the rooms. Few minutes walk to Russell Square station and Kings Cross/ St. Pancras. Lots of restaurants nearby. Staff are friendly and helpful.
