For sure the most friendly welcome ever at a hotel! You're a real guest and it starts from the moment they open the door for you! A warm welcome in the lobby and very friendly to help you around!

The hotel has a very cosy and friendly atmosphere and is a relaxing place to stay in this busy city! The twin room was small but adequate with a good bed! And very important, very clean! (wich is certainly in London in this pricerange above average!) Bathroom is small but very clean and a very good hot shower!

And if you want to sit for a while, you can use the very cosy and spacious lounge with free coffee/tea, internet, books etc.

The breakfast is good, continental and English in a nice breakfastroom!

The location is also good, close to Goodge street Tube and also Russel Square (Piccadillyline) is nearby. Within walkingdistance you can reach the shoppingarea as well as the nice Covent Garden area. It's a good neighboorhoud, feels safe! Bus 24 stops in front and brings you on a nice seightseeing trip around Trafalgar Square etc. (ask the staff!), it's much cheaper than the touristbuses!

Only if you're having problems with walking: there's no elevator, but they also have rooms downstairs, so better ask then! (although very good service, they will help you with your luggages on the stairs...while checking in, our luggage was already in the room!)

I would highly recommend this hotel! It gives that extra touch on your stay in this magnificent city!! For this price I don't think there's a better option!

Nice Boutique Hotel in London Fitzrovia. Calm neighbourhood and yet close to subway and train stations. Many pubs and restaurants around. Very friendly and helpful owner. Rooms quiet, nicely designed with good bathrooms. Free wifi. This is one of the nicest small hotels I ever stayed at. Go there if you get a room.

My Wife and I just returned from our trip to London and had the absolute most wonderful stay at the Arosfa Hotel. The location was ideal, the rooms were awesome and the best part of all were Tessa & Atilla and the staff at the Arosfa who were so incredibly helpful and really made us feel right at home. Oh, And I must not forget Franky. I would highly recommend the Arosfa to anyone from first time visitors to London to seasoned travelers. It was truly a wonderful experience. We look forward to our next visit to London and will definetly make a point to stay at the Arosfa Hotel.

After being in London a lots of time on horrible hotels I finally found this amazing hotel for me and my mother.
The service is unbelievable, I felt like I was visiting some really good friends!
Rooms were clean and very tiny... But it had everything I could wish for. Even though it was Very tiny when u were first living there the size didn't matter.
The break fast was really good. I loved that you both had the options of an English breakfast with eggs, bacon toast and beans. But also had the option of yogurt, fruit ham and cheese.
Location is perfect. You can easily walk to everything and if you don't want to walk the underground is really close..

I love this hotel and can't wait to return here next time I am in London!

Room Tip: I had a room at the very top and with windows to the garden. It was nice and quiet.. But a lot of st...

We found this Hotel purely by chance on the internet & stayed here for 1 night. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel most welcome and Attila goes out of his way to make sure your stay is perfect. The Hotel is superbly decorated with a lot of attention to detail, and spotlessly clean. The rooms are furnished beautifully and have everything you could possibly need, even down to providing a hair dryer and iron. There is a huge selection for breakfast and is all beautifully presented. We cannot fault this Hotel in any way, it's an absolute gem & prefectly located for the tubes, buses & local shops. Can't wait to go again.

Best decision....great location, perfectly adequate room and super friendly service. Nothing was too much trouble for Atilla. Terrific full breakfasts. Nice lounge room at the front of the hotel also free wifi. Plenty of stairs to the top rooms but Atilla carries the suitcases up.

We have just got back home after a 3 night stay. When we booked about 3 months ago, there was only 1 room available so we were not surprised to find that the room (no 6), was on the small side. However, it was perfectly serviceable and spotlessly clean.

If you stay in a Premier Inn, you will get a bigger room and a larger bed; also probably corporate smiles and carefully scripted responses. What you won't get is the fantastic, personalised, attentive, interested service that Attilla and Tessa provide, and which can't be faked. Also, you won't get Frankie. I know which we prefer, and we'll be returning to the Arosfa.

If you do stay, We would also recommend a meal not far away at the Chettinad restaurant on Percy St. Read the reviews.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Arosfa Hotel is a refurbished 200-year old Georgian Town House in the heart of historic Bloomsbury district, the former home of the famous Pre-Raphaelite artist Sir John Everett Millais. The cool white garden squares and wide streets of Bloomsbury have been a pull to thinkers for centuries, and it sometimes seems like every second house has a blue plaque denoting that a great writer, scientist or philosopher once inhabited the building. It was in Bloomsbury that Karl Marx created communism, Virginia Woolf defined the twentieth century British novel, and Charles Darwin first conceived the theory of natural selection. The imposing bulk of the British Museum, home to seven millennia of human art and artefacts, dominates the area, and there are plenty of other academic institutions including Birkbeck College, the beautiful University of London Library, and RADA, London's grandest drama school. ... more   less
