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.

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.

Hotel's Favorite
This was my first visit to England, and London. My travel agent picked this hotel, and I’m thrilled she did! I can’t wait to go back for another stay. The doormen/bellmen were friendly and helpful. I think I met most of them in the 2 days we were there. Michael and Abudi were just great. Helped with bags, taxis, restaurant suggestions; anything I needed help with. Brian and Naleef were concierges I believe, and again, were just so friendly and helpful. I had great interactions with the front desk staff as well; Vasko and a young lady (I forgot to get her name). Again, friendly and helpful. Literally everyone I interacted with in this hotel was friendly, helpful and professional. I can’t say enough about the staff and the warm service they provided. The hotel itself is incredibly charming. Warm, comfy, but still unfussily upscale. When my dad and I got there, we wanted lunch but didn’t want to walk far. Abudi suggested the hotel restaurant, so we gave it a try. As a business traveler I generally avoid hotel restaurants, but I must say, this one was great! We both had the endive salad with blue cheese and walnuts, which was crunchy and delicious, with a nice vinaigrette accompanying it. Next was fish and chips, which was glorious! The fish was perfectly fried and tasted totally fresh, and the chips were amazing- I ate mine and then stole some of my dads. To accompany this was fresh mushy peas, which I had never had. A light taste of mint and some fresh butter made this a lovely accompaniment to the fish. Once we got in our room our bags were delivered, and then we relaxed for a bit. We decided to have dinner out, so I asked Michael for suggestions, and he gave us two, but after further discussion we landed on a proper English pub, called Jack Horner. It was a fantastic suggestion and my dad and I had a great meal with perfect beers to top it off. The next morning we went downstairs for a good breakfast, and we ordered a proper English breakfast. It was soooo good. Then we ordered cappuccino made with cream (keto) which they happily obliged. It was delicious. So much so we had another one. Lastly, our waiter brought us an eggs Benedict, which was truly delicious and perfectly rendered; I had it with bacon and my dad with salmon. All four servers/managers/helpful people were again, top notch in taking great care of us and our needs. We want to recognize Ionut, Victor, Maria and Marina for their excellent service. It was a perfect way to end our stay at this delightful hotel! The room (I should mention) is beautifully appointed, with lovely and unexpected details. The size of the room and bathroom was just right for the 2 of us. The detail and thought put into this hotel truly sets it apart. I can’t say enough about it. I really had no expectations for this hotel, but I was blown away by the location, the service, the property itself and the beautiful little details that make all the difference to a tired traveler. I really can’t wait to go back to London, and will be staying at The Bloomsbury when I do. Thanks again for such an unexpected experience. You guys rock ;)

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.

The Bloomsbury is centrally located to so many things. Jose who greets you as you arrive is wonderful! I was disappointed that the front desk folks didn't note that it was our second visit (full-week visit in September 2019). The hotel was not full due to Covid19 and season yet we were not offered an upgrade. Our room was very small. We didn't push it because we were only staying one night.
