The Arosfa Hotel London by Compass Hospitality is a refurbished 200-year old Georgian Town House in the heart of historic Bloomsbury district, the former home of the famous Pre-Raphaelite artist Sir John Everett Millais. The cool white garden squares and wide streets of Bloomsbury have been a pull to thinkers for centuries, and it sometimes seems like every second house has a blue plaque denoting that a great writer, scientist or philosopher once inhabited the building. It was in Bloomsbury that Karl Marx created communism, Virginia Woolf defined the twentieth century British novel, and Charles Darwin first conceived the theory of natural selection. The imposing bulk of the British Museum, home to seven millennia of human art and artefacts, dominates the area, and there are plenty of other academic institutions including Birkbeck College, the beautiful University of London Library, and RADA, London's grandest drama school.

Spent 4 nights here over the course of two weeks while attending outpatient appointments at UCHL. The Family room was extremely comfortable (and good value when booked last minute). A small twin room was ok, but the beds were a bit bouncy and the sliding door on the bathroom affords little privacy from your roommate. Breakfast was ample and the atmosphere was nice. We enjoyed the assortment of slightly bizarre artwork on the walls.

This hotel is exactly as described. Petit twin room which was clean and perfectly set out. Friendly staff and great breakfast. Perfect location from Euston and easy to walk to Leicester Square or Covent Garden. Would definitely come again.

Its very good experience for my trip to London. All staff especially the girl at reception who help and serve us breakfast which is very kind and helpful to us. The entire property of this hotel is well maintained. The breakfast was really good too. Overall, Arosfa Hotel exceeded my expectations and I will be staying there in the future too. Hotel within less than 10 min walking distance to Euston Station.

I stayed for 5 nights. First of all don’t make my mistake and anger the overlords of the breakfast room. They have rules and you better follow them. Never mind if they never bothered to tell you the rules. Most of my problems here stem from the breakfast room. Starting with refusing to allow me to sit in there when first arriving to check my maps for an ATM and an underground station. I understood that I couldn’t check in early but they could have at least offered me an alternate place to sit down for a minute to get my bearings when I asked since it was raining. The next problem was the following morning. I was spoken to like I was a child for sitting at a larger table by myself and made to move to a tiny table. The explanation was that they were busy and needed the large table. I was one of thee people in there and it was early. And then when I tried to pour a cup of coffee into a cup that was ON my table I get scolded AGAIN!! So apparently you are not allowed to seat yourself nor serve yourself. If this was such a big deal to them then they should have someone in there at all times to seat you and get your coffee. Never mind. I didn’t so much as LOOK at the room the rest of my stay. It’s a shame because it looked and smelled good but wasn’t worth being hassled that early. The room was small as expected. The shower didn’t drain well and almost overflowed so I had to turn off the water to give it time to drain down. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet and warm enough. Rude treatment by staff ruined what would have been a good review. I noticed several other hotels set up exactly like this one on the same block. I’ll try one of those next time.

Dear Arin , Thank you for your review ,We are sorry for the inconvenience, but as you can see on the websites, check in time is 2pm, as you can also see on the sites we are a small hotel and we have no living room , we try offer the best service and help our guest in everything so that they have a good experience and pleasant stay with us . You could have talked about the situation with the manager,during your stay with us ,to ascertain what happened and for the housekeeper in question to be called to attention . Once again apologies for the inconvenience Your Sincerely , Florinda

1 night stay for business. I had one of the single rooms which, whilst pretty small, was clean and well equipped. The only suggestion I would make is for the owners to fit new carpets as they are looking pretty tired in the bedrooms and communal areas. The staff were helpful and friendly; breakfast options are good including a traditional full English and this was included in the room tariff. The location is excellent, Warren Street and Euston Square stations are in close vicinity. Would recommend for anybody looking for a decent 'budget' hotel.
