“Great for business”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

I can't fault this hotel on anything - I stayed the night and hosted a meeting in one of their conference rooms and absolutely everything was perfectly organised.

We used what was probably the smallest meeting room (three of us in the meeting) and the room seemed to have been pre-prepared to exactly how we would need it. The plasma screen on the wall was ideal and a member of staff was quickly on hand to explain to us technophobes how to connect to it.

Great staff, great food, great facilities - it's not often I'm that impressed and hence why I've registered on TripAdvisoor specifically to leave this review!

From the front desk, to the doorman, to staff whom I encountered in the halls, every person to a fault greeted me and was immediately willing to help with whatever I was asking about. I booked at the last minute due to a problem with previously arranged lodgings, and had a standard room for two nights. The room was not large, but beautifully appointed and lovely. Everything was thought of down to the last detail and the room was silent. (room 619). I heard voices in the hall passing once - that was it! No outside trucks, traffic or voices. It was amazing. It was the warmest day of the year so far and the AC was instantly responsive. Lovely amenities, iPod dock, robes and slippers, tea and cookies (or a french press for coffee). Most delicious smelling toiletries - the whole hotel smelled great! In the lobby there was always a pitcher of iced tea or lemonade when we came in from a warm day of sightseeing. The bed was very comfortable and my one small complaint is that it is made in a way that the sheets and duvet only reach mid chest - please make the beds so these can come up to my neck! Needless to say, that is about all I could find that wasn't near perfect. I will definitely choose this hotel on future trips - did I mention that there are 3 tube stops within a 5 minute walk - one a block away? I stopped in the British Museum randomly 3 or 4 times, because it is so close. I can't say enough good things about the hotel. Did not dine at the hotel, so will defer to others on the restaurant and room service, but I did eat the chocolates left on the pillow every night!

Final great thank you - we had to leave our apartment at 11am on a Sunday morning, when we arrived the hotel had a room ready for us. I know they can't promise this, but it was so appreciated after a bad experience with our previous lodgings.

Room Tip: Sixth floor room was quiet as a tomb! Hard to go wrong in this hotel. Value excellent for London...

We stayed here for our honeymoon right after Christmas in 2012 into January 2013. We were very impressed by the service and cleanliness of the hotel. Overall, the hotel provides an understated luxury that makes it extremely comfortable while also feeling elegant. The hotel is in a truly unbeatable location--we walked to nearly everything in the city with ease. It is also very close to the Tottenham Court tube station and also to many bus stops that will take you throughout the city very conveniently. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and we felt like valued guests through our entire stay. This hotel is really a gem, we have recommended it repeatedly to friends and family traveling to London and we will be back on our next trip!

Stayed at the Bloomsbury Hotel. This is a few mins walk from Tottingham Court Road Tube, and very close to the Dominion Theatre (We will rock you). From here it is very easy to get onto Oxford Street on foot.

Room was a superior room on 8th floor (804), clean and comfortable. Only minor downsides were (1) Loose grout on bathroom floor which nipped and cut wife's foot, (2) No windows in room, only skylights, so i;'d not recommend 804 if you stay here.

Other than that, would go back and stay there again, staff friendly and helpful

Room Tip: 804 has skylights, so if you like a window, this room is not best option

What a near perfect position for theatre land and Covent Garden. Breakfast was excellent and the concierge Brian got what we needed when it looked unlikely. Standard room a bit small (as usual in London) but well maintained.

It's not cheap but by London standards not that expensive, well above average.

This is by far my favourite hotel in the capital for both business and pleasure; superb location on a quiet street seconds from the bustle of Oxford street, splendid decor and staff who really go the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing. This is a four star hotel which far outperforms its rating.

I was greeted by one of the porters wearing a bowler hat opening the cab door... he swiftly took my luggage up the steps and into the foyer. At check in I was greeted by Mikel and Gunilla, always good to see familiar faces after a long journey and on this occasion I was lucky enough to be upgraded to a junior suite.

The suite was really comfortable and the decor superb; spacious, plush carpet and furnishings, with coffee machine and roll-top bath with plazma screen in the bathroom. The complementary water and Times newspaper are always very welcome. If you are planning a special weekend in London or are lucky enough to have the corporate allowance to book a junior Suite the Bloomsbury is a real gem in the capital.

Breakfast is always one of the highlights at the Bloomsbury. Estralita is always very welcoming and it's a pleasure to see her and she always remembers how I like things... Usually my Eggs Benedict! These are a highlight on the Bloomsbury menu.

I cannot recommend the team at the Bloomsbury more highly - a four star hotel with five star service!
