I stayed at the Bloomsbury Hotel in London, UK. It was very nice and clean. The people were very friendly. It was located to local shops and restaurants. The British museum was within walking distance. Also, you could walk to Soho, Picadilly Circus, and Leceister Square. The only thing that I did not like about the hotel is that we saw a mouse in the hotel lobby. Also, the rooms are very small but are ver clean. We informed staff and they took care of it. Other than that, we had a great time. The breakfast was good. The hotel is convenient to the subway station as well. Overall, the stay was great!

I stayed on business last October and was not disappointed. In fact the disappointing thing was that I had to check out and leave.

Good points:
Location to Oxford street & West end theaters
Beautiful boutique hotel
Would prefer over both Raddisson hotels which are 60 second walk away
Quiet location - which is ironic given its location to Oxford street
Service service and service - this is how it is done, from receptionists, restaurant staff to porters
Room size is good for central London
5 minute walk to Tottenham Court road tube station
Very nice breakfast


Bad points:
I had to leave
Couldn't fault it on this trip,

I am due to stay here again in July so I will be interested to see if the hotel has maintained its standards since my last trip.

I stay in this part of London regularly and this hotel can be pricey relative to the 2 Radisson hotels which as I mentioned above are extremely close however if you are not price sensitive, or an a personal trip, then I would choose this one every time.

We have just had 2 wonderful nights at The Bloomsbury. From the moment we checked in we were made to feel special and when they found out it was my wife's birthday and our anniversary they lavished us with little extras. The room was comfortable, the food was excellent and the staff were so attentive and friendly. It's position just off Tottenham Court Road and 2 minutes from Oxford Street is so handy. Next trip London this will be the hotel of our choice. Never got to use the fitness centre so cannot comment. Criticism, the usual one, the room lighting is inadequate. Why do all the hotels forget that women need to do their hair and put on their make up

Of course wherever one stays depends so much on one's needs and this hotel fit well with adding a touch of indulgence to a business trip. The location provides easy access to reasonable eating, shopping, and of course the British Museum is right there. But if you are comfortable walking in London and open to exploring it's a great spot. Easy access to trains and busses too. But the staff is what really makes Bloomsbury shine. Every single one took excellent time and attention to help the guests. Thanks to all!!

I and my husband spent a little over a week in London on a research trip and holiday in early May. We chose the Bloomsbury Hotel mainly for its location and reputation, and for the fact that it was a "nice" hotel that fit within our budget. We were not disappointed. It was easy to get to from LHR via the tube (Tottenham Court Road station is right around the corner), and as soon as we arrived the staff made us feel welcome and answered all of our questions. Some Americans may find the standard room to be small, but it suited our needs with the en-suite bath and a desk. The lighting was a little dim and there was only a wardrobe for our clothes, but it was sufficient. I did appreciate the hotel's efforts at energy conservation; the lights only stayed on if you inserted the room key into the wall switch, so they were off while we were out. Primarily, the location was ideal; across the street from the British Museum, lots of places to eat nearby, a park down the street, quiet (for a city), and within walking distance of the West End, Trafalger Square, the National Gallery, Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, and so much more. We walked to many more places than we thought we would. In short, we will always stay at the Bloomsury when in London.
