Stayed here as a late Valentine's Day treat. Room size was impressive. But that's about it. The bed was the loudest bed ever! Just sitting on it made it creak. There were two TVs in the room which was nice. Bathroom was nice and clean. Modern rooms but very narrow stairs to get to the room. We stayed downstairs so...

Room B may be big but that did not make up in any way for the state of the room. It was dirty, cobwebs on every wall, damp in the corner, part of a condom packet behind the sofa bed, dust in the cupboard, grime on the iPod dock, scum and mould in the bathroom. We asked to be moved...

I came here with my daughter (who bless her, had booked this accommodation for us herself for an overnight stay before a uni interview). Like other visitors, I had briefly googled it to check what she had booked, and noticed it was 4-star rated so felt reassured. On arriving, it is quite clear that this is NOT the case and...

I stayed in the hotel for three nights. The room was even big for London standards, it was modernly decorated and the bathroom was also quite good. There was a water heater and a big window looking at the inner court. The only pitfall for me was that it was located 10 minutes from the tube station, as I expected...

Tiny room. Pillows smelled weird. No double glazing on the windows. Busy road. We could hear every sound from the street below as if our windows were open. Toilet seat was broken. Shower took ages before heating up. Kettle looked like it needed a scrub so didn't touch the tea/coffee. Just a bad experience altogether. Will not be going back.

So me and my partner have recently stayed at the Belle cour for one night for a little break away. So we arrived at the hotel at 13:00 we were greeted by the receptionist who said we could check in early all happy so far !. He informed us we were on the third floor (room 31), they were many...

The hotel is in a good location to get the tube or walk to the main areas of London. Parking is not available and only suitable if you are able to manoeuvre the stairs. The reception was closed when we arrived and we waited 15 minutes to get a response. We were shown to our room, it was basic, but...

Location is good to reach the tube. Lovely customer service. The room was comfortable,clean and price was really cheap. Good area to catch local amenities and food. Also the British museum was really close.

I booked this room through a hotel booking website and the rooms are described as having a "king bed or a double and single bed." This is clearly describing a room that either has a king bed or two beds (a double and single). When we got there it was just a small double bed. The website took care of...

As previously mentioned, it is not a hotel but more like a hostel, and an expensive one at that. Tiny room, not very well kept. As soon as we entered we noticed mismatched furniture, stains on the bed throw, missing bathroom cupboard handle, HALF filled hand wash and 'complimentary' shampoos and shower gels, we didn't even have a toilet roll...

We are very sorry about the hot water issue. The area has gas leaking outside our hotel and the British National grid came to disconnect gas. They promise to connect the gas in same date, however they delay the job and it took them two days to solve this issue. It is completely out of our control. Our company is...

Neighborhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
