“A Great Three Week Stay.”

A great deal, a clean and friendly hotel and a awesome English breakfas. Walking distance to many sights. David and his staff are fantastic. Book a room at the back and you will never know the traffic is only a few feet away. Will come again for sure.

Room Tip: Book a room at the back. Can't hear a sound from the street in these rooms. If you have troubl...

My wife and I, and our friends from Louisville (another couple) stayed at the Morgan Hotel during the 2012 London Olympics for 9 nights. It is an excellent place to stay and I have nothing but praise for it.

It is located in Bloomsbury, around the corner from the British Museum, and just 3 blocks walk to Tottenham Court Road underground station on the Central (red) line. There is also a bus stop 50 feet from the hotel entrance.

Everything about the hotel is well kept. Our room (207, one stair flight up from the entrance level) was excellently and efficiently laid out, well furnished, very clean, and fresh looking. It had wall-hung nightstands (with lights) on both sides of the bed; an open closet with clothes rod, 4-5 shelves, 2 drawers, and a safe; 2 side chairs and an end table; a flat panel TV mounted in an upper corner of the room; a compact bathroom with sliding entry door, sink, toilet, and shower stall; plenty of hot water in the shower, provided by one of those instant hot water units; and an in-room air conditioner unit mounted high on a wall, with a remote control, that worked great. The bed was comfortable and we were able to store our suitcases underneath the bed. They even provide a washcloth in the bathroom, which we often found missing in our travels around England.

The room rate includes a full English breakfast served 7-9AM in a breakfast room one flight of stairs down from the entrance level (watch your head going down). Breakfast options include self-service corn flakes, orange juice, bananas, and milk; and table service of eggs cooked to order (with sides of tomato, sausage, and bacon), hot toast brought on a caddy, and your own little pot of coffee.

The owner, his sons, and staff were very friendly and helpful. They helped with our luggage, directed us to an attended launderette (laundromat) less than 10 minutes walk away, and booked a private car to Heathrow for us (50 pounds + tip).

Couldn't have been happier with the location and service. Basic, clean, comfortable, good breakfast, within easy walking distance of theaters, British Museum and good food and drinking spots. These folks go the second mile. Felt completely comfortable as a solo traveler. I'll go back.

We spent two nights at the Morgan in early September. The room was very comfortable. Bed was great, and the A/C was superb. The room and bathroom were spotless and modern. There was plenty of room to spread out. We were on the same floor as the entrance, so we did not have to get our bags up the stairs. The hallways are narrow, so that could be a little difficult for some. Breakfast was very good...nothing extraordinary, but more than adequate. The hotel is very convenient to the West End, Picadilly Circus, theaters, etc. Given the average price of hotel rooms in London, this is very good value and good quality for the price paid.

Room Tip: Room 202 was excellent, and very quiet.

My 12 yr old son and I stayed at the Morgan Hotel for 9 nights during the Olympics. We had an apartment on the 2nd floor for 6 nights and a hotel room for the last 3 nights. The apartment was fantastic - it really is an apartment with full size bathroom, separate shower and tub, large mirror etc. There is a separate toliet room. It has a large bedroom, perfect for us with double and single beds, and a large living room with couch, chair, good size TV and small dining table and chairs. The pictures on the website don't do justice to the actual size of the apartment. The "kitchen" is very small, but usable with sink, small fridge, microwave, dishes, and cabinet. Worth every bit of the 190 pounds a night. The hotel room we had to change to was very small as are all rooms in London. (made our reserv. a year ahead but only 6 nights in apt available!) Bathroom still good size but very little room around the bed, and only one small chair. Small TV high in corner of room. Doable for 3 nights, would have been very hard for nine.
The owners here cannot be beat for their service and assistance. For our first trip to London we so appreciated having them answer questions etc rather than being in a "no host" apt somewhere. The breakfast was great. John took our order each day and everything was quick and delicious. Many choices, yogurt, fruit, cereal, juices, to go along with your hot order.
I'd advise using Russel Square, rather than Holborn for tube to/from Heathrow as there is a elevator rather than all stairs. Try to arrive/depart midday.
Overall, great location. Near tube on Central line. Near grocery store. Just around corner from British Museum. Wish we could return soon!

A friend & I stayed there for 10 nights during the Olympics and had an apartment on the 3rd floor for 190 pounds/nt. We loved the location, so close to everything especially the tube. Walked to the theatres, Soho, Hyde Pk - you name it, we walked there. Was easy to get to from Heathrow - tube to Holborn and 600mt walk to hotel. Although I wouldnt like to try the tube with suitcases in peak hour. The night guy was a little grumpy but other staff were friendly. They were not too good on advising of train/bus routes to tourist spots but thats what the internet is for. Breakfast was great and included. Our only complaint was the hot water on 2 mornings ran out after one shower. I would definately stay there again as our experience was all good.

We stayed with Morgan Hotel end of July 2012 and were given the top room on the 3rd or 4th floor. This hotel has no lifts which we knew. I liked staying there and the staff were really friendly and the breakfast was good also but I got really annoyed when we complained to David about the shower being broken. There was hardly any hot water and he did explain that we were to ru the shower for a long time and he said to us that the shower head was broken and needed replacing but he didn't replace it. Out of everything I look for in a hotel is a decent shower and I did feel that the shower head should have been replaced without us nagging him. We were booked in for 4 nights for the second week in August after our holiday in Spain but I canceled it and it booked with another place which was way cheaper as well.

Morgan's was really central and close to everything but we just got a bit annoyed with the shower, and you know what I bet it's still broken!!!!

Room Tip: No lifts so if that bothers you ask for rooms on lower levels
