The hotel certainly has a good location. It is located in a row of lovely, old houses (many of which are hotels). It is fairly close to Euston and St Pancras stations. My room was very small, though modern and clean. There were a number of negatives. The public areas were worn and drab. The staff I met were efficient... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for two nights while she was on a course. whilst the room was adequate, I found the room small in comparison to much cheaper hotels I have stayed in. The bathroom was very clean and well decorated. The stair carpets are looking very threadbare and in need of replacing. The continental breakfast... More

Stayed here 13 September 2014 as attending Proms in the Park. Easy to book, although did receive a message 48 hours before to state debit card could not be accepted. However, on re-entering details of same card, no problems. Funds were taken and listed as pending and then presentation of same card on the day completed payment. Reception staff helpful... More

My husband & I stayed overnight in this hotel on 23/7/14. The room was clean but quite small although the beds are very shaky & the bathroom very compact but clean and usable. The air con unit was very useful as it was difficult to have the windows open as the traffic was very noisy (I live in a busy... More

Just stayed here for one night. The hotel was perfect. It was clean, fresh looking and in a great location. The staff at reception were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast, continental, was fresh and on time. I will stay again.

We stayed here in early June, 2014. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was small, but newly renovated and worked well. The location was great - close to the Goodge Street Station and the British Museum. The breakfast consisted of a choice of three kinds of cereal, coffee, tea or hot chocolate, fruit cocktail, and a basket of... More

Cheap, but you get what you pay for - a horrible room. It was tiny, and I couldn't even sit down on the toilet without keeping the door open. Dated decor, small uncomfortable bed, poor amenities. Overall, disgusting.

The rooms were ok, clean and tidy. We booked two rooms, the double on the top floor was ok, new ensuite. Triple on top floor had more space. Air con unit, which didn't put cold air in the room. Which was a shame as it was warm. Beds was ok and we found it clean. But the continental breakfast was... More

Excellent location for Bloomsbury - stayed for a quick visit as it was handy for Euston. All is basically OK - clean and spacious room, slightly cramped shower room, but that's not a big problem. Matress was a bit thin but the worst aspect was that the breakfast was poor - no other way fo describing it. At this price,... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

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. 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.
