We booked for 3 nights but on arrival, we're so disappointed with our room, we got a refund for nights 2 & 3 and booked in elsewhere. We were put in the basement, which smelt musty and the room was horrible. The bed was very uncomfortable and at £95.00 per night the room was double what it should be worth.... More

The staff was very, very helpful and friendly. They assisted us on which tube lines and buses we'd follow to get around the city. As well as mapped out attractions we could visit in walking distance. They serve a fantastic continental breakfast.

We had a terrible experience staying in the hotel. At 3.30 am in the morning a a loud drunk couple checked in in the room next to us ( rooms are poorly sound proof plaster walls) we called several times to reception. No action was taken when we complained the staff were rude and careless. Place to avoid

Stayed last night in one of their triple rooms. Very clean,tidy and the beds incredibly comfy,had a great nights sleep. The hotel was quiet too which is a bonus for London. Breakfast was good,nothing excessive but exactly as advertised,we were presented with a basket of fresh warm pastries and tea was brought out fresh too. The staff are friendly and... More

The area is great, but the hotel is on a very busy road and there is no air-conditoining which means that you're either too hot or there's too much noise to sleep. The room proportions are quite mean for the price (you have to climb over the bed to get to the other side). The 'continental breakfast' is poor. The... More

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

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.
