I stayed for a total of four nights over two separate visits at this hotel and I'm afraid it is not a hotel I can recommend. [Positive] The staff, in particular the front desk are excellent and very helpful. The room was clean. [Negative] But the biggest problem was the noise of the plumbing. Extraordinarily loud.

Travelling From Kings Cross St Pancras and need to arrive the day before? Then this is excellently placed just across the road from this Major Train Station. Small but compact rooms, but real value for money given the excellent location. Clean and tidy with friendly reception. I would with out doubt stay here again. Plenty of restaurants, food outlets and... More

I couldn't find anything wrong with the Wardonia Hotel. It is very affordable and in an unbeatable location, right down the street from 6 underground lines, the Eurostar and countless mainline rail services. The room itself isn't that small but the bathroom was exceptionally squishy. The room and bathroom was always kept spotless by the housekeeping staff. I had no... More

London hotels are generally small, especially mid-price ones such as this. However the Wardonia takes 'small' to an extreme. This was the smallest hotel room I think I've ever been in, and I'm not particularly fussy about size. It was a box, with a double bed taking up nearly all the room. The bathroom was so tiny that if you... More

We stay here for 2 nights to sight see around london at a great prize .Wardonia is a great hotel for location as it is literally down a little road from Kings cross/ St Pancras station. The room was very small and basic and the bathroom was small too. But we didn't stay in the hotel that much only at... More

If all you want a hotel for is somewhere to sleep this is fine. The rooms are small and the bathroom tiny, but it was all clean and fine. The shower was hot and powerful and the bed was comfortable. Free wifi is a bonus. Nowhere to work apart from sitting on the bed however. Breakfast not available but nice... More

Hotel was clean and very reasonably priced for it's location. 5 minute walk from kings cross which was brilliant. Bathroom was quite a tight squeeze but the single bed was a lot bigger than I expected and pretty comfortable. Would stay again!

Having stayed in several hotels in this area, this is the most average (at not necessarily the cheapest (others include breakfast - Wardonia does not). Rooms are clean and modern, but so small, it was difficult for us to both move around the room and navigate around our bags at the the same time (no storage space). The bathroom -... More

Nice things: The room is very clean, the shower is nice and big, there is TV, free wifi, and all the things that you need for doing tea and coffee inside the room. Good price for the money compared with other solutions in London. Bad things: The room is very, very small; the duvet is so small that sleeping in... More

I stayed at this hotel for a weekend break in London with my boyfriend and chose the hotel due to its convenient location. I had read the reviews online and followed people's advice and requested a room in a quiet area of the hotel. True to other comments it was still rather noisy at night due to people moving in...

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.
