I found the Bloomsbury Hotel to be a solid 4 stars. The room size was pleasant for London, the bed comfortable, and the little extras appreciated - a good selection of magazines were in the room, the aromatic toiletries were nice, and the Nespresso Krups machine a convenient touch. The staff we encountered were polite and efficient, and the hotel was clean and elegantly decorated. The shower is an in-bath affair, which are never terribly comfortable to use, but it did the job.
Breakfast in the morning was enjoyable - the buffet selection had an array of museli toppings, some cooked meats, fruit, and the usual fare. From the hot breakfast, I had the waffle with syrup, which was thick and chewy and simply lovely - a good start to the day.
On the same street at the British Museum, this is a good hotel for the tourist, with Tottenham Court Road being the nearest tube station. Although I usually stay in other London locations, the Bloomsbury Hotel was comfortable and may draw me back to the Bloomsbury area in the future.
