“Lovely myhotel”
Reviewed March 27, 2007

Had a lovely weekend staying at myhotel - good location in Bloomsbury, near shops/bars/musuems/cinema. Hotel is very stylish - lovely bedding and aveda toilettries. Staff were all very helpful and
the breakfast and bar area are lovely. Our only problem was not being
able to work the heating during a cold spell but can't really fault them on that.

nice modern hotel in a good location, however the quality did not match the price. room was nice inside but lacked some details, too much noise from the corridor and the floor above my room, you could hear steps and squeaking.

staff was decent, in all honesty I had trouble understanding the receptionist, he spoke in an indian type accent at 150mph.

I have no major complaints but next time I will stay at another hotel, there are many that are equally nice for a more reasonable price.

The staff at myhotel Bloomsbury were great. The attention to detail makes you feel like you're at home with things set 'just how you like them'.

Service was personal without being in-your-face.

The library is a great place to just sit. The decor and the aromas throughout the hotel are just lovely.

The buffet breakfast offered a great selection of healthy options.

The location is fantastic, I walked everywhere.

I highly recommend myhotel Bloomsbury and I'll definitely stay there again.

I was given a tour of this hotel after I went in out of curiosity. I will never stay at this hotel after having seen the rooms. They are so tiny, they look like jail cells. And the "closets" consist of thin and long spaces in the wall designed so that you cannot see the clothing (that's actually what the tour guide told me!) So you have to stick your arm in and around just to access the clothing. But the worst thing was when I saw the comforter on the bed. First of all, it was all fur (no idea if that was real or fake fur). Very fuzzy. Then I made the mistake of touching it. A white, sticky substance got onto my hand...say no more. That was it. I was outta there! Too weird.

I never normally write reviews but I am compelled to make a comment on MyHotel Bloomsbury. As a global traveler there are certain essential services that are a "must have" in a hotel such as; internet and business facilities, good location, 24 hour services including quality room service, security, concierge relations and gym amenities. As a regular visitor to the UK I have for the past 18 months been a regular guest of MyHotel Bloomsbury because of the entire staff’s attention to detail and a genuine concern for me as a guest. Not only are the rooms well appointed, the hotel has an excellent conference facility and catering service that results in my time being thoroughly utilised. The rooms are well appointed with first rate beds and linen, and to make sure you don't feel like you are living in a box, each room has a slightly unique décor that is not off the shelf IKEA. There is a 24 hour bar and an excellent Japanese restaurant that is open for lunch and dinner. They also provide quality transport to and from the airport ensuring you are fully managed during your stay. From the management through to the house staff their commitment to hospitality is truly exceptional and unlike the larger hotel chains - they remember your name! When I meet other guests the comment is always the same, "I will be staying here again". MyHotel is a great example of a modern boutique hotel that caters to the modern guest that does not want to be just another number through the door. It truly feels like MY Hotel.

the location of MyHotel Bloomsbury is definately good, but comparing the price and quality it should be hovering above oxford circus to be considered reasonably priced.

We stayed at the hotel for a week and overall had no major problems with our stay. the room, a deluxe sized one, was small but decent for London. some setbacks included a squeaky floor, which made loud noices everytime I walked over certain parts of it. the room door had quite a gap underneath it and was poorly sealed, making even small sounds form the hallway hearable inside the room - probably the other way around too. service was ok but not special in any way, breakfast was good. considering the location, it would be a good deal for half the price.

recently I stayed at Radisson Sussex, which is located a block or so from selfridges - actually a better location in my opinion. price was almost half of this one, and considering the fact that hotels share even a rather similar style, I very much prefered the Radisson.
