In the beating heart of London, close to Theatreland, The British Museum and Covent Garden, The Bloomsbury, a magnificent Edwin Lutyens’ Grade II-listed, neo-Georgian building sits amid the historic 18th century neighbourhood of the same name; a literary heartland filled with galleries, bookshops and a wealth of cultural heritage. Following a multimillion pound refurbishment, the final chapter in The Bloomsbury’s redevelopment includes beautifully designed Luxury Studio Suites, Sitting Room and grand salon bar - The Coral Room. The Coral Room, designed in collaboration with internationally-acclaimed, Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, features 36 original pieces of art commissioned with illustrator Luke Edward Hall and inspired by the surrounding Bloomsbury area. The restoration of The Bloomsbury also includes Dalloway Terrace, a charming indoor and outdoor restaurant and The Bloomsbury Club Bar which takes inspiration from the Bloomsbury Set, evoking the glamour of a bygone era.

Always wanted to stay at The Bloomsbury and after booking to see a theatre show locally to the hotel, the opportunity presented itself. The concierge team were top class and after going for a FREE courtesy walk with the lovely Susie (every Saturday morning from at 11:00a.m i'm told), re the history of the local area, we had a drink in the beautiful Coral Room. The staff were ALL friendly, helpful and keen to make our stay a memorable one. I mean this in a normal way, not pretentious or patronising. I even commented to my wife that i wonder if this is how celebrities are treated when they visit hotels! We ate at the Dalloway Terrace after our theatre show and enjoyed a very pleasant dinner is a very beautiful setting, followed by a few drinks in the Coral Rooms. A special shout out to Estelita, Maria and Patricia at breakfast where i couldn't believe how nice the Black Pudding was. I should get out more! My wife and i will be back, and thanks so much for looking after us.

Hotel's Favorite
I stayed here few months ago and it was lovely. But this time was special due to my birthday celebration, and a weekend out in London, which all The Bloomsbury team made it perfect. We were welcomed and greeted by Alejandra at Reception who was very informative and chatty with us. Once we checked-in in the room I found a prosecco bottle and lovely card wishing me a happy birthday, which was a very nice touch. We opted to go for a drink to the glamorous Coral Room, the Spanish guy from Valencia welcome us, and Jonathan made the Danny Ocean's cocktail for us.... And it was amazing! All staff was very attentive and cheerful, but they went an extra mile when Alejandro, brought us a happy birthday plate with macarons and two glasses of Champagne! Wow! Our first day couldn't start better! Room was lovely, very well equipped, very comfortable king size bed and nice to have shower and bath in the room. Housekeeping team refresh the room and brought some tasty chocolates in the afternoon, the room attendant who I didn't catch her name, was friendly and very smile! We were checked out by Alejandra again and she kindly kept our luggage. The very polite concierge Kem escort us to the the exit and wished us a nice journey back home. Thanks again to all The Bloomsbury team for such an amazing stay, we will definitely come back. Special attention to Marta who did the reservation for us and made sure all our stay went perfect!

The Bloomsbury is without doubt one of the best hotels I have stayed in. All the staff there were excellent from the man who helped us when we arrived through reception, the restaurants and the Coral Room. everyone there went out of their way to ensure that guests have the best possible experience. The Coral Room is a great place to enjoy bother dinner drinks and post dinner drinks. Guests are placed appropriately within the room depending upon such factors as the size of the party etc. and this works very well. Dinner on the Dalloway Terrance has to be recommended the service is first class and the food and wines were excellent. Breakfast in the Breakfast Room is also well worthwhile. The range of breakfast foods available is beyond compare and again the staff there cannot do enough to help their guests. Rooms are very comfortable and quiet. I cannot wait to make my next visit there.

I've been visiting this hotel since it was a Jury's hotel and it keeps it high standarfs since then. It is a boutique hotel and although I've preffered the former reception and entrance, service is still top notch! Location is the best in London! Maria at breakfast is great and all other staff at reception, porter etc. We will be back as always!

It was my first time staying at The Bloomsbury and it exceeded my expectations. The chic Art Deco Bloomsbury circle decor was so stylish, the rooms very comfortable and quiet and the food excellent but what really made the hotel stand out for me was the fantastic staff. I was on my own but they made me feel so welcome. They were all so smiley and helpful but two people in particular deserve special mention - Anna at breakfast and Francisco who helped me with my luggage. They were so friendly and made me feel really at home. I will definitely be back.

We decided to stay an extra night in London and wanted to move from our hotel called middle eight to the bloomsbury just to try something new - although we were very happy at middle eight. The service from the get go was nothing compared to our previous hotel. We arrived early and the receptionist told us the room is usually available at 3pm but she would be able to get us the room earlier. She would make sure our luggage would be in the room when we got the key later on. Moreover, she said she would call us when it was ready. She never called so we ended up calling them instead (around 2pm), she said the room would be ready in 20 mins so we headed back. We ended up waiting until 3pm for our room after all. The communication by the receptionists was really bad. If we knew that it would take longer we would just walk around and shop a bit more. When we asked around 2.45pm, she told us the room was ready but she would be helping us in 2 mins as she was running to get something. When she came back she actually ended up helping someone else and it took her about 10-15 more minutes before we got our key. Once we got the key we got no explanation of the hotel facilities e.g. the restaurant/breakfast/bars - although we heard other guests received this info. She just kind of shoved the key in our face and then left. Very disappointing and not professional at all. We never received any apology from the staff despite the mistakes and miscommunication from their side. When we finally arrived to the room they forgot to bring the luggage. We had to call them for it. We mentioned that we had waited for awhile and our luggage wasn’t even in the room - the lady on the phone just said ok will send them up and then just hung up. No apology. Hotels are all about the service. For the price of this hotel, we expected much better. There are so many other hotels in London to choose from. We won’t be back.
