A huge thank you to Michael Neve & his staff for a wonderful stay at this fabulous hotel. 5 of us had an overnight stay for a shopping trip to celebrate my daughters 21st birthday. The hotel is perfectly positioned just off Oxford St.. The service was impeccable , the hotel spotless, the rooms beautiful & the breakfast was just perfect. We would love to go back & stay again & could not recommend this hotel highly enough. Thank you again for a memorable stay!

Service was excellent, we were offered hot flannels on arrival and complimentary smoothly. Our room was very comfortable and the facilities and refreshments excellent including Nespresso machine. This was a good location for our stay, we went to see the Jersey Boys at the Piccadilly Theatre which was within walking distance. The British Museum, Covent Gardens, Big Ben, the London Eye, all within walking distance. We didn't need to use the tube during our stay. The Hotel staff were courteous and very helpful at all times. After busy days walking and sightseeing it was lovely to come back to the hotel to relax. We had 2 evening meals in the restaurant which were delicious and the bar afterwards was very relaxing. Excellent Cocktails! We had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend the Hotel.

This hotel was amazing and we had a wonderful stay. We stayed at this hotel to celebrate my fiancées birthday and we're delighted to find the hotel staff had made a great effort and had out a card and a (delicious) birthday cake in our room. The hotel staff were always happy and helpful. The rooms were beautiful, clean and modern with a marble en suite bathroom. Our stay was incredible and we would definetly stay here again. Thank you to Bloomsbury Hotel for our lovely stay.

I had a (sadly) very brief stay at the Bloomsbury on a business trip and was delighted with the hotel.
The entrance is very impressive and beautifully decorated and the front desk welcome was really lovely - very friendly and attentive without being over the top. The offer of a warm cloth to refresh the hands was a nice touch and VERY welcome after a long busy day!
The room was a little small but not unusually so for London and was just lovely - nice calming colours and impeccably clean. Bathroom was small but well laid out and the shower was great.
In short - loved it!

Stayed at four hotels during our ten day visit. Greenwich, Windsor and two in London. This hotel was a better experience than the hotel we stayed at on Park Lane. The staff was personable. The room was very clean and large for European standards. The workout room was good. There was even a fruit tray waiting for us upon check-in which was great as we had just finished the marathon. Good location for many activities. Quiet, which again is not always the case as many older hotels have poor sound quality between rooms and the street below. Definitely would stay again and recommend.

Stayed there for 5 days
In my humble opinion it has pros and some cons which shouldn't be there for such expensive hotel

1st pros : the hotel has a great location for the major shopping street Oxford st . Steps away from the Tottenham metro station.
They check the room twice daily to make up the bed and provide clean towels and tea bags if needed
The room aircondition work both cold and hot which was something important for me I leave in hot country and can't sleep if the room is cold

The breakfast was ok

The hotel staff is very cheerful, helpful and polite

Cons : they do check the room twice but the don't clean it from dust at all !!! The whole 5 days the dust accumulate on the bedside lambs and looked really disturbing, also the room was never vaccumed. There was a big spiderweb above the window which make me wondering every night is there a spider in the room ??
The last thing that I really hated and thanks God that I only noticed it in my last night other wise I was going to change the room or the hotel "the silvefish bug "!!! (they usually leave in dusty areas). I hate those .... I found two of them wondering on the bathroom floor in my last night in the hotel !!!
I took photos for these cons but won't post them cause no need to do so

In the morning during checking out I informed the reception guy about those bugs ... He didn't know what am talking about but he apologized to me for the inconvenience
