Although cheap by central London standards and while it was at least clean, the owners really need to try a little harder. The photos they've used to promote are incredibly misleading. Very unstable bed on the point of collapse. Light above bed not working. £20 deposit to have a remote control to switch on the telly. No air conditioning. No... More

...not much, so I wasn't disappointed. However, on walking in, there was a distinctly musty smell. Staff were OK, room was basic, knew it was a shared loo. Bedding was clean, reason for the low score was the quality of the mattress, really bad, very uncomfortable. I turned it over, as the bottom seemed slightly better, probably not been turned... More

Do not try to stay here as we did, thinking it was just a budget hotel. It was truly horrible. You have to pay for your stay when you check in. The bathroom is about the size of my very tiny lavette at home. There's no shampoo, only tiny bars of soap. Towels were not changed daily, no internet, cable... More

This hotel is in an amazing location, near theatres, clubs, Soho, etc. It was perfect for our quick trip to London. The rooms definitely need updating, and we had a strange windy path down to our room. But it was convenient, clean and comfortable, and I would definitely consider staying there again, mostly due to the location. No wifi.

My friend and I stayed at this hotel as we had a dinner to attend in Soho. The hotel is outdated and furniture like the bedside table was dirty, cobwebs above bed and no plug in sink! Really noisy in the basement room that was supposed to be a 'quiet' room! No drinking facilities or Wifi. We did not feel... More

...the positives end there. My room was in the 'modern' annexe, reportedly the better part of the hotel. The common parts are terribly shabby. Dirty and noisome. I am pleased to have stayed but only so that I can recount the experience much as one would describe the sensation of being in a car accident and escaping unscathed! There was... More

Always expect nothing more than somewhere to sleep when using budget hotels. The receptionist was very pleasant, the ensuite was modern and convenient but that's where the good points end, unfortunately. The standard of cleanliness was poor and one wall socket was frustrating. The room we were given (room 1) faced the main road and, although it didn't bother me... More

The name makes this hotel to be a lot fancier than it is. I booked it because it's location was close to where I was attending a conference and it was cheaper than a lot of the other places in London. That should have been my first warning. It was very nondescript from the outside. The staff were friendly at... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

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.
