I visit London several times per year for both business and pleasure. After trying various Accor locations, I have found the Mercure Bloombury meets my needs perfectly. Rooms are smallish but when you are in London who spends time in the room? Staff is very welcoming. Breakfast is excellent. Front desk and concierge are helpful. Location is perfect. I look...

Myself and my partner booked a 1 night stay here as we were attending 2 shows and I must say the proximity was ideal. Tube was very close by and plenty of bars and restaurants around. Nice comfy bed and room was fresh and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. We were a little disappointed with the room as it...

My husband and I stayed on business for one night, midweek, in May. The hotel was busy but the reception staff were friendly and helpful. We booked a superior double, which on the main road, but we found it quiet and spacious. As we were offered the opportunity to check in when we arrived at 1pm, we did so, surprising...

As a Le Club member, I expected more. On arrival, we were given an unsatisfactory room that had wet patches on the old, rucking carpet and was clearly one of the less desirable rooms in the hotel. It was also a room for disabled people and, though this in itself was not an issue, the layout of the room was...

The Mecure is a good quality hotel with very friendly staff. The room on the second floor was compact but had everything you needed. Comfortable bed with good aircon. The breakfast in the Marco restaurant attached to the hotel was excellent. Good location.

We spent 10 nights at the Mercure London Bloomsbury in April and would stay again and again. It was the perfect base for us to explore London, and was close to multiple stations (including St Pancras and Euston), making it easy for us to venture out of London also. Although rooms were not huge, this was expected, and there was...

Located close to 2 tube stations, well served by buses, and in walking distance to many attractions, the hotel is well located, with a few pubs, cafes and restaurants nearby. The room was on the small side but reasonably comfortable, except it did not have a window you could see out of - the small window was frosted, as it...

Located midway between Holborn & Russell Square stations the hotel is conveniently located for access to the West End, British Museum etc. A compact hotel with extremely helpful and friendly staff.

We stayed here a few nights. The location of the hotel is good, just a few minutes walk from Subway station (right inbetween Russel Square and Holborn on the Picadilly line). You will be walking to the British Museum within 10-12 mins. Service is ok, breakfast is what you should expect. The rooms are ok, but a bit old fashioned....
