On arrival we were given the keys to room 8. The bed was unmade, rubbish bin full, towels on the floor and crumbs and leftover food all over the table. I believe that if you specify a check in time all of the rooms should be cleaned by that time. Obviously I complained and was asked why I didn't like... More

Booked 3 rooms for 3 nights I messed up the booking by adding one room for 1 night. As I booked 3 rooms for 3 nights I hoped at the hotel they would cancel it, I was wrong no refund! The rooms required a good clean, the usual sink and bed seemed clean but the skirting under the bed all... More

Hotel is on excellent location. If you are a walker you can visit great deal of London on feet. In a vicinity of British museum ( it comes handy in bad weather) are lot of hotels. Althoug the rating is not good I chose it for the price ( It was a special Sunday discount). Hoped for better furnishing anyway.... More

So we needed a short notice stay in London and I booked this place through Booking.com. I went for cheap, what we needed, I did expect what we found. We paid on arrival and were given our keys. The room was in the basement. Just on the way to the room it smelled mouldy. The room itself was even worse,... More

But in the case when you sit in Starbucks trying to find some place to sleep till the morning (unwanted surprises can happen!) and if you don't want to go bankrupt (accommodation in London can be pretty expensive, especially if you don't book...

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.
