Very friendly and helpful staff, cute room, good location :) would happily come back again! Not too expensive for London which is a plus. The rooms aren't really big but it is clean and makes it a cosy place to stay for a couple nights.

This little family run hotel is perfectly situated to explore central London on foot. Only a few minutes walk from the British museum, Covent Garden and Oxford street. Also just moments from a tube station and many many bus stops! The hotel itself is basic but sweet, situated in a row of old London houses rather than a purpose built... More

This is a great little find. Location is very good, just minutes from Euston station but in the quieter area of Tavistock place. I was on the ground floor and there was hardly any traffic. Very clean and tidy. Lovely cafe adjoining. Nice staff. Easy.

Our family spent three days in London, and St Athans certainly helped make our holiday a very nice one. The hotel is conveniently located near museums and public transport stops, and it's really cheap for such a central location. Breakfast is not included, but there is a lovely cafe downstairs that serves traditional English breakfast and great coffee. The rooms... More

Lovely helpful staff - clean light room, simple furnishings with a bit of character and good bathrooms - near enough to our room and there must have been quite a few as we never had to wait for a shower. I love the rambling corridors and creaky floors that still give a flavour of the old building. Well placed hotel... More

A nice comfortable hotel in a brilliant location. Friendly staff and great cafe downstairs for breakfast. Looks like they have introduced some good eco-features which I like. Would certainly go back for another stay.

Fantastic location - really convenient. Love the quirkiness of the place with slightly sloping floors and winding staircases. The staff are always really friendly and you never have to worry about booking in late or getting back to the hotel late. Always makes my stay in London less stressful.

The great central location of this hotel makes walking around London easy. The British Library and British Museum are both an easy stroll. Also close to Euston station, bus routes and Russell Square tube - with Kings Cross and St Pancras stations only a little further away. Room was simple and clean.

I traveled with two friends and we stayed three nights. The hotel is in a nice and calm neighborhood, but still very central. It is close to two different tube stations and St Pancras train station, which was perfect for us, because we traveled by train from Paris. The rooms were big, clean and nice. We shared a bathroom with... More

Staff were simply fantastic! I interacted with at least 4 different staff members during my 4 night stay, and they were all quite helpful. The neighborhood (Bloomsbury) was charming, as expected. It is located within a few short blocks of the Russell Square tube station, which was incredibly convenient. My single room with a twin bed was small, but very... More

Neighborhood Profile
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.
