Paid £260 for a 2 night stay, arrived all looked ok & was told our room was no 5 on lower ground floor which rang alarm bells but we are always willing to give things a try. The hotel's name is Bloomsbury palace which is appropriate as all palaces have a dungeon & our room was it! Damp everywhere even... More

Dirty, located in room with thin window and lots of traffic outside. No sleep, freezing cold in a room where your name could be written in the dust. Staff were unhelpful and was told there in nothing they could do as the manager wasn't in. Would not recommend. Looked under the bed to find it covered in rubbish including 3... More

I stayed here for two night with my dad and brother as we travelled down for the football. I have no complaints about the hotel itself because the standard is reflected in the price. Yes it's small, dated etc but the beds a comfy and the shower was decent. We never made breakfast due do two late and heavy nights,... More

£55 including breakfast in Central London is a good deal.This place is clean and decent enough for a one night's stop over.The staff are friendly and the English breakfast was fine, you pay for what you get and I would stay there again...

Didn't have a pleasant experience at this hotel. Staff were ok it was the room which wasn't up to my usual standard. The big stain on our mattress cover was horrendous. The little touches were missing too, no bin!!! Breakfast was good but won't be staying again!!!

Dirty bed sheets, no bedside light bulb, curtains held back with safety pins, no bin. Could not sleep on the bed. When discovered problem was too late to contact reception. Just a lack of attention to detail. Positive note breakfast was good.

The breakfast was really good, for an English breakfast. My mom said that it was comfortable enough. But tiny, she couldn't even turn around in the bathroom. However I was impressed that they were even able to clean such a cluttered space. We thought we booked a twin room, but apparently that was not true. And the staff could do... More

This has to be the worst hotel I have stayed in for 40+ years. DO NOT COME HERE. I have the night to get through yet so may decamp to a proper hotel yet? Noisy. Grumpy and angry receptionist. Unhelpful staff, crappy box rooms, impossible shower. Oh boy, it's hard to find a positive. STAY AWAY
