Rosanna and her staff made the Celtic a very comfortable stay. The location, just around the corner from the Russell Square underground, was so convenient. The rooms are cozy. My family had a quad room on the top floor and didn't feel cramped. We shared a bath/shower but never had to wait. The showers are tricky though, as you have... More

We went on a 3-day-trip to London and searched for an inexpensive, yet clean and central place to stay with our 8-year-old. The Celtic Hotel was recommended to us by a friend and turned out perfect for us. It's located in Bloomsbury and literally just around the corner of Tube Station Russel Square (Piccadilly line) and 5-10 minutes from Holborn... More

For hotel prices in London, you will find this one clean, inexpensive and located conveniently in the heart of Bloomsbury (a stone's throw from Russell Sq. Tube St and London University - Senate House). Perhaps, more importantly you will feel very welcome and find breakfast served refreshing and tasty with a great choice of food and drink.

Right off Russell Square, with easy access to all of London, this no frills small hotel is our new favorite inexpensive (for London) place to stay. Our room (pictured above!) was small, with the toilet and shower partitioned off the room on each side of the window, but they worked. The beds were comfortable, the staff friendly. There is no...

We were in London for a week, and enjoy being in the heart of the city. This hotel is in Bloomsbury, close to theaters, shopping, the tube, pubs, and Russell Square. It is by no means a luxury hotel. It IS however, very clean, comfortable, super friendly, and fills you with enough breakfast to set you on your way for... More

My family and I stayed in a triple bedroom with shared toilet and shower for just £109 in the heart of Bloomsbury which is a great price. There were plenty of showers and no queue for that or the toilet (if you're worried). Room was spacious, minimally furnished (no kettle), but the beds were comfortable and plenty of linens, soaps,...

The room was poorly decorated/equiped with old 'military-type' blankets, no Wi-Fi in room and in ground flour lounge, medium quality breakfast, and there was a 3% 'surprise' charge for credit card payment (i.e. the price agreed was valid for cash payment only).

Came back to the Bloomsbury area of London for the second time in one year to visit the theatre again. After finding a hotel with mostly good reviews and cheap prices, we went with this one. Personally, most of these issues didn't bother me that much as I spent most of my time out of the hotel, but I feel... More

This hotel is in a prime location a few blocks from the Russell Square tube stop, and also close to several cafes, restaurants, and grocery stories if you want a quick bite. Staff and proprietor are friendly and helpful. There is a lounge with all kinds of books & magazines left by former guests. Quiet, comfy place (not for tour... 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.
