Ambassadors Bloomsbury

Reviewed August 1, 2012

Stayed here overnight after going to London 2012. The (twin) room was spotless if compact with a modern wet room plusTea/coffee, air con, a small wardrobe and desk . My bed was firm (hurray) andthe sheets soft and snuggly. Breakfast was a problem in that there was so much choice it was difficult to decide what to have. the concierge service was a bonus as we could leave our bag until we needed to catch the train from Euston, a stones throw away. The room was directly opposite the lift and on the front of the hotel but neither caused an issue and both occupants slept undisturbed. Does what it says on the tin!

Room Tip: From previous reviews the twin rooms are larger than the doubles. Make use of the concierge service.

Very nice hotel, good room and lovely breakfast. We stayed here after visiting the Olympic Park for basketball. We had a quiet room which was very clean, it had tea and coffee in the room along with a bottle of complimentary water. The receptionist gave us a later check out time when we asked. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for 2 nights and I have to say the hotel was brilliant. When we first entered the room, we thought ''wow it's a bit small'' but it once we got sorted it was fine. It had everything you needed, and was just very compact. We only really slept in room as were out all day and for dinner at night. The air conditioning was ace! It was 30+ degrees while we were there so it was put to good use! Free Wifi access too which was great! As far as location goes its perfect, right across from Euston station and a short walk to Russell Sq tube. The room and hotel were spotlessly clean, and the room was serviced very well. Shower was brilliant. The staff were friendly and efficient. Breakfast was really lovely, very fresh and well presented. It had a great cold selection that you could help yourself to and you had your hot breakfast choice served to you which avoided the ''free for all'' type you get in a lot of hotels these days.

I would say, if you on a mini break in London this hotel is perfect and very good value for money. When we were checking out the concierge offered to store our bags, which gave us an extra few hours to do more shopping and have lunch in London! Great stay, and we will definitely be back!

Clean rooms, good location to London Euston and St Pancras -5 min walk. Staff are attentive, some nice traditional pubs and food nearby, generally perfect for the 1 or 2 nights.

Great location, this hotel is a couple of minutes from Euston and the no 91 bus to Trafalgar Square stops outside the door so you can get to theatreland very easily. Ask for a room at the front, overlooking the street, though take ear plugs.
Not sure about the bijou bathroom, the basin was the size and shape of a pudding basin and the term wet room has never been more justified. But the beds were huge and supremely comfortable. All the staff were really friendly and helpful and the breakfast was freshly cooked rather than sitting under a grill all morning. Safe and secure luggage store for a late departure worked very well.
Look for a deal on this hotel if you can, it wasn't cheap.

Room Tip: Go for a room at the front overlooking the street

I stayed here recently for 1 night only while in London on business. It has to be the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in.

Positives:
+ friendly staff and very helpful
+ good location and comfortable
+ very clean, with modern fittings
+ great wet room (nearly the same size as the bedroom!)

Negatives:
- the smallest hotel room you are likely to find.
- windows that did not really open and looked onto a brick wall (zero light and zero view!)

Don't me wrong I know that city hotel rooms always treat space as a premium, but have a look at the pictures and you will see what I mean. Would I stay here again? Only if the company was picking up the tab and I was looking for a single occupancy room.
