Don't usually go into London often, but when in Rome don't stay at a travel lodge, pardon the pun. Perfect service and accommodation you pay for what you get - perfection ;) nice terrace Bar and visit the cellar!

We spent a week in this beautiful hotel that had been designed by Edwin Lutyens, known for all of the British buildings in Delhi and the magnificent Somme memorial. Our room was large and supplied with a coffee maker and tea kettle. Each night, for turn down, we were given chocolates plus cookies. As a surprise for our anniversary, we... More

We planned a trip (my wife and I) with our son for a week in London, and we wanted a hotel close to the West End with distinctive British charm. The Bloomsbury caught our eye as a possibility, and it surpassed every expectation and then some! First, the staff was amazing. Clearly customer service is alive and well in this... More

I was in town for meetings, The Bloomsbury was very central for them, but I could also wonder down through Soho within minutes. Location sounds like it's going to be hussley and noisy, but really isn't - very peaceful feel to the hotel, elegantly styled and well maintained. Most impressive though was the service - the right balance of friendliness,... More

Spent the most amazing night at the Bloomsbury last week. Everything about this place oozes relaxed luxury. Courteous check-in (with fresh lemonade on offer) and pre-setting your room temperature. My room was delightful - spacious, classy and relaxing. Great bathroom too (with heated floor and tv!). A lovely plate of fresh fruit and pastries awaiting my arrival was a nice... More

A centrally located hotel off Tottenham Court Road. Easy access from the tube station. We had a business meeting and lunch in the restaurant. Very good food and good service. We booked a meeting room and it was well services with coffee, tea and biscuits all day! Perfect location if you want to head into London.

A favorite when in London, location, breakfast, room, service. I love the interior in the tea room area. But still I find that the prices has increased more than others for the last couple of years, so I have actually stayed in other hotels in the nearby area, with better price/value. Please do something about that, and I would love... More
