The best thing about this hotel is its location. There is a bus stop just a few steps away from the entrance, and the nearest Tube station is about a block away. In other words, really easy to get around when staying at this hotel! The hotel has pretty narrow halls and stairs, but the staff were both polite and... More

This is a basic hotel with not such a basic price tag ! The Hotel was clean but the rooms are small I would not stay here again. The hotel is in a good area to visit landmarks, museums and there are lots of restaurants to choose from.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Gower House hotel during our time in London. It was wonderful. Very charming, and in a great location. The staff was courteous, helpful, and friendly. I will definitely stay here again when I return.

This hotel is in an ideal location as Oxford Street, Regent Street etc are all within walking distance. The British Museum is just a few streets away. For those wishing to travel further there are several busses which stop just across the street and Goodge Street tube station is. 5-minute walk away. We stayed in room 15 on the third... More

Great location, 20 minute walk from St Pancras International. Small room but clean and tidy. It is located within 10-20 minute walk to lots of the theatres and places to eat. I chose it for this reason. Staff friendly and welcoming. Definitely stay here again.

Chose this hotel due to the proximity to the theatres in the West End. The location is fab...a 5-10 min walk. The room was small but clean and served its purpose well. Breakfast was poor...I didn't expect a cooked breakfast but what was on offer was pretty dismal. It's the location which makes this lovely little hotel.

This was just a great B&B, great location, even better staff, I can not say enough about this place. We could have stayed in the best hotels in London, we can afford it, but we just want a base to explore and spend money on us and at night its a bed, but its a good bed there. I wanted... More

The Gower House Hotel is ideal for travellers who are in London for a few days or couples who need a bed to sleep in. It is located on Gower Street and is 5 minutes away from London Underground's 'Goodge Street' station. The rooms were clean and the interior was very nice. Only issue we had that there was lack...

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.
