We were quite happy with our accommodations at the Arosfa. We stayed in room 2 for three nights, and it was spacious, with one of the nicest bathrooms we came across in our three weeks in the UK. Shower was roomy (even if it was a bit of a squeeze to get through the door) and the room was nicely decorated. Being on the ground floor was very convenient, too, as the hotel does not have a lift, so you'd be hauling your luggage up the stairs.
Location is perfect, there are so many great restaurants in Bloomsbury and Fitzrovia. You are near to a few different tube stops, and there are always people about, so it's very safe.
Breakfast was plentiful, and service was attentive, if not warm and friendly. Just a note ... when they say breakfast is from 7:30-9:30, they mean they will be packing things up at 9:30! We learned that the first morning when we got up to refill our juice glasses and the breakfast bar was already cleared. We did ask for more juice, and the server grudgingly got some for us.
- 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
