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.

This is a ’5 star’ establishment. The rooms are lovely. The staff are efficient and gracious. The situation is perfect for the west end and all it offers. The cocktails in the famous Coral Room are a knockout and Gio’, the manager, is probably the best host on the London cocktail bar scene without doubt. The breakfast is very good and Maria the Maitre d’ always remembers us and is very attentive and professional. Nothing is too much trouble for her or Estelita her co worker. The Duty Manager, Sebastian always makes sure that our stay is a joy and a special mention for Ivan, formerly the likeable giant doorman, who is now learning the management business under Sebastian’s guidance. Ivan has an unshakeable positive vibe and makes us feel like ‘special’ guests. Once again, a memorable stay at The Bloomsbury.

Well after a year away from this fantastic boutique hotel which we call our second home so good to be back thanks to Sebastian annandale for welcoming us back with a smile even though under a face mask and the other staff in these crazy and scary times so good to be here a lot of changes have been done but have been done very well due to covid 19 had a lovely room which has been exceptionally sanitised so very safe and clean also spent time in the coral room for drinks which was nice unfortunately due to restrictions our favourite bar the Bloomsbury club bar has closed for now we are keeping our fingers crossed it reopens soon as my wife and I have so many great memories of nights spent in there . The dalloway terrace is brilliant especially with current restrictions lovely food and atmosphere. Most importantly we've been able to come back as we were very worried the hotel was never going to open again .well done to all the staff our stay has been magnificent along with 5 star service back again next year

The restaurant and bars have been very pleasant for a couple of months but we decided to enjoy the recently re-opened rooms. Just wonderful! The perfect tonic for the times. All a very pleasant experience despite the need to be careful. The staff were perfect as always. A weekend to remember.

The staff are truly excellent and cannot do enough to ensure your stay is comfortable. We were greeted on the street by a delightful concierge who showed us through to reception. Despite arriving way too early for our room to be ready we were checked in, luggage secured and told that we would be called as soon as our room became available. I've been promised this 'call' service before from other hotels and it doesn't happen - not the case with The Bloomsbury, a quick coffee and walk up Oxford Street and our call came the the room was ready, excellent service. This was our fourth visit to The Bloomsbury, we will be back.
