A desire to see the Pompeii exhibition prompted a spontaneous trip to London over the Easter weekend with my wife. At very short notice we found the Bloomsbury Palace conveniently situated for the British Museum at under £100 B&B which for central London is a bit of a result.
I stay in central London hotels all the time on business and room size is often an issue - even in the big brands (when someone else is paying!). We stayed in a basement room (No 4) and it was fine - far more spacious than some of their near rivals, very clean with a great ensuite shower. The door to the bathroom could be a little more private (see through glass). The staff in the hotel were very helpful, bringing extra towels swiftly when asked. The hotel was nice and quiet on Gower Street, but only a short walk to Goodge Street tube where there is all the life in terms of restaurants etc you would want.
Breakfast was cooked to order (always a good sign in London) and was tasty - good quality bacon and sausage. We left our luggage at the hotel during the next day - there didn't appear to be a secure luggage room there, as the bag was just left in the lobby. So don't leave anything valuable in them (we didn't have a problem). A great stay in a part of town where hotels can be decidedly grotty - well done to the Bloomsbury Palace.
