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.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our Royal National Hotel. We appreciate your feedback as hospitality service is of paramount importance to us and always want each guest to feel comfortable and welcomed throughout their stay. We appreciate your comments regarding our London Pub and Blooms Pizza Café. We hope that you took the opportunity to visit our café and enjoyed our delicious food. It is also great to hear that our Reception Team were able to provide a professional and friendly service throughout your stay. However, we are disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy your entire stay with us. Equally, all our rooms are fully serviced in line with our procedures, before being entered back into the system for check-in. Our Housekeeping Team are available from 8am to 10pm and would have been happy to assist with any concerns you may have had with the room, at the time of your stay. We have immediately reiterated the importance of ensuring that all our Room Attendants are extra vigilant when cleaning the rooms and apologise for any lapse in our usual standard of cleanliness. In addition, our Royal National Hotel is the largest hotel in our group and can become quite busy at times when we are fully booked during peak periods. We apologise if you had to queue for breakfast during your stay. We would recommend one of our smaller hotels such as Bedford or Tavistock to guests who are looking for a quieter stay. If you would like to discuss any issues relating to your stay further, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at info@imperialhotels.co.uk. Always assuring you of our best intentions at all times. We thank you for choosing to stay at our Royal National Hotel and hope to have the opportunity again to welcome you back soon. Kind regards, Guest Relations Officer
