“Excellent location and very friendly staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

I booked this hotel for a 2 day theatre break for my sisters birthday. The staff very very welcoming and on hearing of the reason for our stay gave us vouchers for complimentary breakfast for both mornings.When we got to our room we found a broken lightbulb and after reporting it found it replaced the same day. Very central location and ideal for theatre break.

Stayed here one night this week and upon arrival the receptionist was very helpful and printed off documents for me no problem.
Room was a bit small and there is no air con but it was spotless clean and the bed was comfy...

Breakfast was nice also.

Really nice staff in the restaurant also, this place is worth the visit.

I stayed at is hotel for 4 days last April and found the place to be good value for money and very centrally located as well. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, the room was nice and large and so was the toilet. The amenities were good and the bed was very comfortable. I would stay in this hotel again for sure and would recommend it to anyone looking for good value for money and a convenient location with a good comfortable ans spacious room

We had a room for 3 persons. Nice big window with street view. The room was quite small (almost no floor space) but clean and alright for London standard - but not near the size of the room shown for 3 persons as we saw it in the hotels own pictures! We had breakfast included. The restaurant was nice and there was a great selection of fruit, hot food, cereals, yougurt and pastries. We enjoyed this every morning.

The location was perfect. You can take the Tube directly from the airport and walk with your suitcases to the hotel. You are in walking distance to many sights and good restaurants. There's also a small shop with water and food items just close by.

It's expensive, but we would return because of the location.

Dear EmNaMi

Thank you for your review. I’m glad that you had a great stay. All of our rooms are different due to the nature of the building, but we do always try to ensure that families get the biggest rooms.

Our breakfast is one of the best in the area, so thank you for taking the time to praise us for this.

When you’re next staying, make sure that you call us directly as this will ensure that you get the best deal.

Kind Regards,

Sebastian

We were staying here as we had a dinner to attend in Whitehall and this was a very convenient spot. Reception were very friendly and efficient and our room on the 6th floor was well-equipped, very clean and quiet with a terrific super kingsize bed. We slept extremely well and breakfast the next morning was very good, with a good choice of hot and cold food. Very impressed.

I recently stayed at the Bloomsbury Park hotel for several nights as I waited to move into more permanent lodgings in London. I'd come over to study at UCL, and I was still adjusting to London and the U.K. While I didn't eat at, or truly spend much time at, the hotel I had several incredibly positive experiences interacting with one of the main receptionists named Farheen. She was an absolute joy-- not only was she consistently polite, attentive, and positive, but she also genuinely cared about me and my experience of the hotel. She gave advice about interesting places to visit, directions to the theatre that I couldn't find, and also helped me figure out some of the general hotel logistics that were really stressing me out. Again, in this instance, Farheen acted with care and compassion in helping me figure out pricing and keycard problems etc.

Anyways, my point is this: I cannot vouch for the food, nor the rooms (they were perfectly serviceable,) I can say that my interactions with Farheen alone were positive enough to merit coming back because in the end I believe that caring, committed, staff are an integral part of a successful hotel.
