I stated when booking that I would need help with luggage. I thought that this indicated that I am disabled. I was offered a room on the 3rd floor and there are no lifts. Eventually I was given a ground floor family room for the 1st night and then moved next door to another ground floor room which was the... More

It started badly - the hotel was dirty. No soap in the room. The communal shower room was filthy - with no soap. There was one sachet of coffee and two teabags in the room - but no milk. All for 95 pounds! I was woken up in the middle of the night by a rodent in the room foraging... More

Arran House is in serious need of an update, and a good clean. The shower curtain in our room (18) looked like it was put up in the '60s, and the windows were grotty, the flower pots full of previous occupants' cigarette butts. The breakfast room is small, so if it's even half full you can expect some awkward bumps.... More

Great for easy access to London attractions. Room was small and pretty tatty, the only plus side was it was clean and the bedding was clean. If you want a peaceful nights sleep go elsewhere this place is on a street that has sirens blue lights down it every five minutes. If you want to try to block out the... More

I was in room 11 on the top floor. En-suite was the size of a large wardriobe. I have never seen a half width shower tray before! Sitting on the toilet risked opening the door out to the rest of the room with your knees which were touching the door.The room décor was much over-painted and cracked woodchip.I'm not sure... More

Nice, budget-ish hotel. We stayed in room 11, which had an ensuite bathroom, though it was so small you almost fell over closing the bathroom door. Breakfast was good, and the location very nice - close too several subway stations, and within walking distance of many tourists destinations, not least the British Museum.

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.
