Very enjoyable trip in London, the weather was so beautiful and very hot. But the hotel was not so delusive! Rooms were small and there is no air-conditioned ! It was very difficult to open a window and it was very noisy. The breakfast in the morning was awful ! It was a English breakfast with eggs, porridge, sausages.... but... More

I stayed here on my own this time on my own. I had a perfectly adequate single room. I paid £99 per night with breakfast and dinner on the first night, which was excellent. Prices for all drinks throughout the hotel are by London standards very reasonable. I am 78years old with mobility difficulties. The staff,particularly those in the Atrium... More

Was booked there for a book launch. Single rooms a tight fit but enough after flying for hours. Shower/bathtub was good. Front desk and staff are very friendly, breakfast is nice. One single ride from Heathrow to Russell Square station. Close to tante Brunswick, cafeterias, sainsburys, British museum and Bloomsbury of course. Good for a morning run at the park.

Have read mixed reviews about this hotel so I wasn't expecting much however I booked a single room & got a family room. And it was bright, clean & comfortable including the bathroom. Towels were soft & large enough so I was really pleased. I had a cocktail in the bar in the evening whilst listening to three excellent musicians.... More

This hotel is chosen by my friends and colleagues who visit London and recommended by them. This is a budget hotel with room and breakfast and free wifi, best suitable for a business trip, where I may come here only to spent the night. The food in this place is not good, however, many restaurants are available nearby. The rooms... 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. 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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Imperial Hotel is the flagship of Imperial London Hotels. We're proud of it for a reason. Offering breathtaking views over London's greatest public square, it reflects every ounce of our dedication to service and value. Like all our hotels, the Imperial combines a remarkable location with the great facilities and friendly service of a family-run business. At the Imperial, though, while the price remains extremely reasonable, we add an extra dash of something special. The location is remarkable, connecting guests to the rest of London in minutes. In addition to the central Atrium Bar & Cafe, facilities include a casino, a hair salon and a Chinese herbalist. Restaurants and cafes offer plenty of choice to families and business travellers alike. Indulge in the intriguing delights of Coffee and Candy. Enjoy a late night at the Night and Day Bar, serving classic pub fare at great prices. And relax; we've been doing this since 1837, and we know how to make your stay a restful one. ... more   less
