Visited The Thanet for 2 nights recently. Exceptionally clean, comfy beds, great breakfast. Very close to British Museum, Underground, coffee shops, pubs and restaurants. Bloomsbury Gardens and Russell Square Gardens close by. Highly recommended.

This hotel was a great find, we had quite a large room in the basement, it was lovely and light, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was really nice and all the staff were polite and friendly. The location was fab for what we wanted to visit - British Museum less than 5 minute walk. Would definitely stay again!

This was my second stay at the Thanet. I enjoyed my first stay more. The room I was given this time faced the road so it was noisy at night. In addition to fighting the jet-lag, I slept less than I needed before the exam I had flown into London to have. Otherwise, the hotel was clean, rooms were tidied... More

While the rooms are cozy (who really cares since you should only be there when you're sleeping?!), they offer delicious breakfast. Plus you cannot beat the location. Nestled between two tube stations (Holborn and Russell square) and two beautiful parks (Bedford and Russell), it is within walking distance to the British museum, and Oxford street. The staff is so kind,... More

We had a great stay in the Thanet Hotel. It was all spotlessly clean, the beds and pillows were so comfortable. Breakfast was served in a lovely dining room with a large selection to choose from. I was particularly delighted that they had soya milk and made me some delicious soya porridge. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his full English breakfast... More

Had to make a late booking due to another hotel booking falling through. Wasn't the cheapest one night stay, but the Thanet was nice. Easy to find, quick booking in. Was allocated room 6 - up two flights of stairs which could be tiring for some, and the room itself wasn't big. Double bed is against the wall. Bathroom is... More

We were there four nights pre-cruise. Our room was very clean and comfortable, with great beds and pillows. There is no elevator and our room was up a flight of stairs, but they happily helped with the luggage, so it was no problem. The hotel is owned and run by a lovely couple who were helpful, cheerful and caring. They... More

The rooms are clean, comfortable and offer some sitting space. Breakfasts are delicious and well organised - a small section of the front sitting room has been very efficiently converted to an on-site kitchen, so there are no delays and everything is freshly cooked! The central location is fantastic and within walking distance to the British Museum, or Covent Garden.... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
Bloomsbury
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.
