“Good hotel, centrally located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

This was the second time I stayed at this hotel. The first time was two years ago and improvement works were taking place. Service is very friendly, location extremely central if you have business in the centre, rooms are very decent and clean. And with tea facilities in the room. Two things I would recommend adding is bottled water and sleepers.

Stayed December 2014, traveled on business

Nice clean classically decorated hotel in an easy to find central location. I travelled alone however and the area can be a bit worrisome alone at night. Plenty of places to eat close to hotel and Breakfast and food at the hotel is very good.

Staff were friendly and helpful.

The standard double room was a really good size as was the ensuite (it had a bath/shower). The room and bed was very comfortable and there was a large flat screen tv with loads of English channels. The hotel was nice and quite and the room temperature was appropriate so it was easy get a good nights sleep there. The WiFi whilst good in the lobby area was poor in the room and barely functioned at all.

Overall a nice comfortable hotel (:

Prior to our arrival to the hotel, we had notified the hotel that we would arrive around 1pm and we appreciated the fact that our room was ready on arrival! The room/bathroom were spotlessly clean and in very good condition. There was a large variety of breakfast items, both savory & sweet. F&B,housekeeping and reception staff were very attentive. Only small criticism about the hotel would be that the one lift available is very slow! Hope to return to London in the nearby future and will definitely stay in Bloomsbury Park Hotel.

I stayed at the hotel for one night for work. The hotel was easy to find and near to the Tube station- about 10 minutes walk. There are lots of cafe's and places to eat locally. Check in was good, although the receptionist struggled a bit as English was obviously her 2nd language but she was friendly and welcoming. The room was lovely- clean and spacious and bathroom had a bath- which was great. The only downside was there were workmen digging up the pavement outside of the window, but that wasn't the hotel's fault. All in all a nice stay.

Stayed here one night with my son in a small twin at the back of the hotel. Problems at check-in - credit card error, not hotel- were soon resolved and up we went. Room clean with lovely welcoming touches of chocs, bottled water and robes but could do with more than 2 plug sockets and also needs an extractor fan in the bathroom, I had to open the window after the showers. Breakfast was a wonderful array of all sorts including fresh fruit and full cooked, so plenty to please everyone. Lift was indeed achingly slow, we ended up walking the four floors. Staff really are a huge asset, great to get a pre-stay call from Seb to confirm the twin, and kind of them to look after our bags for us both days. Would definitely stay there again, thank you.

Stayed recently on a one night business trip. My recent experiences of London Hotels have been pretty poor so was pleased to find I had a big room with a separate sofa for relaxation, good size TV and good bathroom. I was on the back of the hotel so it was lovely and quiet, got a very good night's sleep and an excellent hot and cold breakfast buffet with pretty much everything you may desire on offer.
Reception is small but efficient. This is definitely one I would stay in again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel if you value quiet.

This very nice hotel is within walking distance from British Museum, plenty of theaters as well as great shopping streets like Oxford Street and Regent Street. It only tages a few minutes of walking to the nearest tube station: Russell Square (a stop on the blue Piccadilly Line). Hotel staff is most friendly and we also tried and enjoyed the morning buffet, which includes typical English breakfast (such as eggs, bacon, sausages, beans and of course toast). There are several small supermarkets and restaurants nearby. We will definitely return to this hotel next time we visit London. By then, we could wish for two small improvements that would make our stay even better: A faster lift (elevator) and a refrigerator/mini-bar in the room. Cheers!
