A pleasant experience! Great services, very friendly and supportive staff. Good location and easy to get from Heathrow. Walking distance to Soho, Covent Garden, British Museum, Piccadilly Square, Trafalgar Square. Room & bathroom very clean. Dalloway Terrace a very nice place with good food and great service. Would stay here again.

We stayed on Saturday 6th May, I waited before doing review as it saddens me to have to be negative, we stayed here in May 2016 and had wonderful time (gave it 5 stars and couldn't wait to return) May this year, a different story!

Great, upscale London hotel located a few blocks from the British Museum and walking distance to lots of local pubs, shops, and restaurants. The room was very modern, but quite small, which is typical of most European cities. Would stay here again.

For the third time we stayed at the Bloomsberry and were very satisfied. A spacious studio and bathroom well appointed. We just regret not to be able to have just tea or coffee, orange juice and toast for a simpler breakfast.

This hotel is perfect. A beautiful, classic building, comfortable rooms with very comfy beds and everything you could possibly need including a large umbrella.

The Bloomsbury, part of the Doyle Collection chain, sits on the western edge of the Bloomsbury district, just a block off Tottenham Court Road. The hotel is a 1920s-era former women's social club and takes full marketing advantage of the area's literary heritage (the outdoor dining area, for example, is The Dalloway Terrace). The British Museum is just a five-minute...

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Well-located to theaters, the British Museum and most attractions of Central London. We had reserved a standard double room which was small and dark. Due to a maintenance issue with the bathroom plumbing we had to move to another room which was larger and far nicer. The staff handled the inconvenience of the...
