The third time I've stayed at The Bloomsbury. Reason for staying was because of our great stays before. We stayed with our kids this time. The kids were royally treated with a teepee tent over a bed and bathroom accessories. Really lovely touch. Again the staff were polite and nothing was a problem. Cannot fault the Dalloway Terrace. Really good...

Upon arrival at 10.30am not only were we greeted with a friendly smile...

The hotel is well appointed, extremely clean and welcoming. It is set in the heart of Bloomsbury within easy walking distance to many of central london's attractions. I'd had a long and arduous journey and upon my arrival the concierge recognised this and provided me with hot damp towels to freshen up. My room was spacious with a delightful bathroom....

Hotel was beautiful and in a great neighborhood--close to the tube and lots of great pubs and shops nearby. Staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Nightly turn down service was a lovely touch. Also, appreciated the hotel bar, which was not only beautifully decorated but served delightful drinks as well. Just a few minor points that keep the Bloomsbury...
