“Great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

Great hotel, in a central location for a reasonable room rate for London. What more could you ask for. Our room was clean and cozy. Didn't have a great nights sleep due to the fire alarm going off three times but that aside would definitely stay again.

We stayed in this hotel for a couple of days for a business conference on 28th and 29th January 2014. I found the service excellent and the staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. In particular there was a concierge named Kasif who was so helpful. He gave us great directions for anywhere we were going. He always had a smile on his face and remembered my name every time I came into the hotel. Staff like Kasif are so important to a hotel as they are the first people you meet when you enter a hotel and they give you the first impression of a hotel. The rooms were very comfortable and very quiet. The reception were also very helpful and friendly. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anybody visiting London for business or pleasure. It is also very central. Only a walk away from Oxford St and Covent garden. Well done!

I loved staying here and couldn't fault The Bloomsbury Hotel in anyway. The hotel is beautiful, and luxurious, and the all staff were so helpful and friendly. I felt at home here and it was very convenient to so many of the famous London sights. The Concierge was particularily helpful and gave me daily advice on how to get about and make the most of my stay in London. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone if you don't mind spending a few quid.

The Bloomsbury is in a great location, right off Oxford Street/ Tottenham Court Road and very convenient to TCR tube station. The foyer is a bit unconventional but is really welcoming. I had a room on the eighth floor and was hardly able to hear any noise from the busy London streets. The breakfast is a bit pricey at £21 but a good quality Irish breakfast. One minor gripe is that in many ways the hotel feels like a piece of Ireland in London with the breakfasts, newspapers etc but they really should stock i
irish breakfast tea to get it right. But that is a very minor gripe.

Great weekend in London with my husband. We stayed at The Bloomsbury Hotel for 2 nights in January 2014 and it was fantastic.
The location is perfect. Near the Tottenham Court Road Metro Station (a few minutes walk). Short walk to Convent Garden, Soho, Oxford Street....
The hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming. We arrived at 10 a.m., the room was ready and it was possible the early check-in.
The street is very quiet and the bed was perfect, extremely comfortable. Slept like a baby.
The room was spacious enough and well decorated.
The breakfast was very good, with good buffet selection.
The hotel offers free WIFI and an iPod/iPhone docking station in the room.
Good service and high standards. The outstanding service of all staff needs to be pointed out. The best of all was the service we received from Estelita.
We already recommend this hotel and we will stay again.

Room Tip: The quiet superior room was at the front of the property. It was spacious enough, well decorated, an...

I stayed at the Bloomsbury Hotel on Saturday the 25th January. On check in the staff were very welcoming. The room was immaculate and well stocked with above average quality bathroom products. I can honestly say I have NEVER slept in a bed as comfortable as the one in room 426! I seriously could have stayed in bed all day!

We had drinks in the basement bar which again were lovely - try the Espresso Martini it's delicious! Again the service was faultless.

We were booked to see a gig at Soho Theatre so needed to get there for a certain time. The doorman went out of his way to walk to the main street in order to hail a cab - what a star (it was lashing down at this point). I hope his boss reads this as he really did go - quite literally 'the extra mile!!'

Highly recommend this hotel and will definitely return.

Stayed at the Bloomsbury Hotel for 2 nights in late December 2013 (first chance I've got to write the review). Absolutely wonderful experience. First of all the location was perfect, just a few minutes walking distance to the tube station or a short walk to main attractions like Oxford Street, Leicester Square, Convent Garden etc. The hotel staff where very friendly and welcoming, always saying hello each time we walked past and holding the main entrance door open for us each time we left the hotel. The hotel itself was beautiful. Our hotel room was a reasonable size and very clean, the beds very comfortable, fresh bedding both nights and they left us a couple of chocolates next to the bed. The hotel offers free WIFI and an iPod/iPhone docking station in the room was also a bonus. Would recommend this hotel.
