The Bloomsbury is a great find. It is a beautiful building, very comfortable and a feeling of being hospitable. The staff are just lovely without trying too hard. I think we will make this our first port of call in future. A good compromise between Premier Inn and paying a lot more. A winner.

I started using this hotel as a back up to sister hotel The Marylebone. Today, I prefer it to the Marylebone, rooms are more spacious, more personal service, better breakfast, and chinese Michelin star restaurant Hakkasan is just 5' walking.

I stayed at the Bloomsbury recently for a conference and was very impressed with my time there. Everything about the hotel was delivered and presented at a very high standard, and they put a lot of effort into finer details that other hotels ignore (eg. a personal, signed welcome letter from the manager dated for my check-in date). The facilities...
