“Clean, quiet, good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I travel out of Euston a lot, and when in London this is a very convenient Holiday Inn as it's only a short walk from the station and from our office. I have nothing to complain about, it's certainly very HI but staff were excellent and I have no problem returning.

My husband and I have just spent a long weekend visiting London to do some sightseeing and take in a show - Irving Berlin's "White Christmas". We stayed at the 4* Holiday Inn, Bloomsbury. Excellent location only 8 minutes(for us) walk from King's Cross railway station and on the No 63 bus route in to the central area of the city. We were so impressed by our hotel that we felt inclined to write this review. The weekend package was booked by me through SuperBreak and included return rail fare from our home town to King's Cross, two nights Bed & Breakfast and 1st night's evening meal in the hotel and the added bonus of a FREE one way river cruise on the Thames. Excellent value for money, we thought, but especially so as I chose the Holiday Inn, Bloomsbury. It was visually appealing, immaculately clean with very friendly, helpful staff. We also had a choice of two restaurants and the food was incredibly good. Would highly recommend to anyone wishing to have a short (or longer) London trip.

Room Tip: Higher floor (8 floors available) for better city views

Excellent location, nr Russell Square Tube and minutes from British Museum,

Rooms very clean, towels refreshed daily. Quick switch of rooms when found we were on a floor under repair & redecoration.

Service from all staff first class, nothing was too much trouble. Very good food available from bar on Friday (big party in restaurant) and vey attentive staff, complimentary dessert or coffee due to noise from party disco.

Brunswick Square shopping also on doorstep with Waitrose, Sainsbury's, clothes shops and Carluccio's, Nando's, Yo Shushi to choose from for meals.

Most definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Go for upper floors if staying on a Thurs - Sat

I stay here frequently on business in London. Great location, comfy, always clean and not as noisy as most central London hotels. Breakfast is decent with a good choice and staff are always helpful. Would recommend for those travelling with work.

Stayed at this hotel for a single night after a night out. I picked the hotel purely on location (which is extremely convenient for most of the West End) but was pleasantly surprised to find a spacious, clean and modern room and lovely friendly staff. Only slight negative was the unpleasantly warm bedroom (in December!) but this was easily fixed by leaving the air conditioning on overnight. I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is in a good location, right next to Russell square tube station with lots of local shops,cafes and pubs to choose from. The rooms are nice and clean if a little small but we only slept there so it was perfect for us. Our rate didn't include breakfast and was £16.95 extra which is rather excessive, we had breakfast at a local cafe that was lovely and very cheap. If you want a good hotel in a central location this is perfect.

My daughter and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Bloomsbury in late November. We were upgraded to a recently renovated room on the first floor.The room was quite spacious for a central London hotel. The beds were comfortable and there was also a sofa and a comfortable chair and desk in the room. The staff were friendly and efficient and the room and bathroom were kept very clean. Breakfast was generous and tasty. The hotel’s location is perfect, as it is in a quiet neighborhood and about 150 yards from Russell Square station on the Piccadilly Line. We took the tube to and from Heathrow Airport, without having to change stations. The British Museum is a short walk from the hotel, and Oxford Street and Covent Garden and London’s theatre land are also within walking distance.

I would definitely stay at this hotel again and would recommend it to my friends.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 104, which I recommend. As IHG members, we received free WiFi.
