i ended up staying here by accident as another hotel on this street had overbooked & would not let me stay here. I would join other former patrons - pay a bit more & find a place that is safe and clean. Our sheets had horrible black hairs on them - it was not clear if a dog or other... More

I will keep this review short: This is by far the most appalling hotel I have ever booked into. The other hotel I had booked, had due to human error over booked so I checked in here as it was nearby. I took one look at the room and left straight away. It was filthy, dark, dingy and horrible. I... More

My company made the very big mistake of booking this hotel last year without reviewing it first. I was traveling alone and arrived late at night, the man at reception spoke poor English and was very unhelpful and looked like he couldn’t be bothered, my room was on the third flood and this is no lift, he watched me struggle...

Who-ever you are, whyever you are going to London, where-ever you are coming from. DON'T STAY AT THIS PLACE. It is truly awful! Torture yourself in some other more humane way if you must, perhaps by skinning youreself alive and pouring boiling fat over yourself.

much to our regret we had booked without first consulting tripadvisor. so, we arrived very nervous, especially nervous that there would be bed bugs. Thank God, no bed bugs. at least not in our room which was on the ground floor. We could however only sleep with ear plugs because the noise from the traffic and the sink was very... More

We had booked an apt. but my 81 year old couldn't get up the stairs, so we found this down the block. They quoted us 120 pounds, but said if we stayed longer, it would go down to 110 pounds. After paying for 2 nights they then told me it was 125 for 3 nights and 135 for the last... More

I'm not going to spend an hour writing a full length report on this hotel. It's disgusting and dirty, so just don't stay in it. If it was £20 per night I would maybe say you get what you pay for, but for £65 pn you deserve better than this!

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.
