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!
- 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
