I stayed in this hotel in May this year and thought it had everything I needed, it was clean and bed was comfortable. However this time I didn't enjoy it as much. I was put on the 7th floor, in a tiny "attic" room so a skylight and tiny window that I could barely see out of. The corridor outside... More

Stayed for four nights in a single room. Decent size room, bath small but clean, bed was okay. Spent my days out exploring, so I wasn't looking for or expecting much in a hotel room. Continental breakfast was awful - just toast, cereal and canned fruit. You can upgrade to a full breakfast for 5GBP, but instead, skip this and... More

Stayed there for 6 nights. Hotel is huge and service formal and not personal. Breakfast is awful!!! Very close to Russel square tube, but not close to almost anywhere. Room was big and clean. The hotel is ok if you just need the bed and planning to stay out all day.

This hotel is value for money. It is good if you want a central location and dont want to spend all day in the hotel. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Evening cavaray and breakfast were ok. Rooms extremely cleam and cleaned each morning. Some of the interior is looking dated. All in all would stay here again

First of all, know that this is a 3-star hotel in London. I would even rate this as 2.5-star compared to US hotels, along the same range as La Quinta or Comfort Inn. As such, don't expect brand name toiletries or luxury anything. Expect the room to be small, since this is London after all. What the hotel offer is... More

The Staff and public areas are the best feature of the hotel. The meals too passed muster and the location is fair. However the rooms could do with a makeover. There was an odour that I just could not pin point during my stay but seemed to come from under the bed. Overall I would stay again but would swap... More

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.
