The Staunton is in the middle of Bloomsbury, few steps away from Russel Square and 5 minutes walk from Brithish Museum and Charing Cross/Oxford St. Hotel is OK however does not deserve 4+ for some reasons: no common areas (just a small reception), single rooms are tremendously small, bathroom accessoires are old and it takes time to select the desired water temperature in the shower, breakfast is OK but the room where it's offered is ugly and small (if crowded it would be really a mess!). Not really very close to any tube station but several train/tube stations are within 8-10 minutes walk. I love this part of London therefore I'd consider it again, but only in double room and at a reasonable price.

Thank you very much for taking the time and effort to give us your constructive feedback which is ever so important for us in order to improve the service we provide.
First of all we would like to apologise for any inconvenience that you may have experienced during your stay at Staunton Hotel and also to thank you for some of the positive comments, however there are a few points that we would like to comment on.
Our room’s sizes are reasonable taking in consideration that the hotel was a Georgian house in the past. We are also confident that the cosy room size is an excellent compromise for our friendly and personal service and the great central location. Regarding the common spaces, we do have a lounge room with comfortable chairs, sofas and TV. Our reception area is also designed for our guest to relax if they feel tired after a long day.
We are offering Free English and Continental Breakfast included in the price and consider this to be a plus. Our breakfast staff is professional and efficient, and even if it gets busy during morning times, they will always do their best to satisfy our guests.
Like you said, Staunton Hotel is situated in the middle of Bloomsbury, not far from all the major London attractions: Covent Garden, British Museum, Oxford Street and West End are all within a short walking distance. Two tube stations – Tottenham Court Road and Goodge Street are 5 minutes walking from us and we regret that you consider this being not close.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to discuss these issues further.
We sincerely hope you will give us the opportunity to welcome you back to the hotel in the near future.
With kind regards
