We are regular guests at this hotel & we find it conveniently located for the shows that we come to London for. There is a great real ale pub (The Swan) next door to the hotel and Convent Garden is within easy walking distance. The hotel itself is consistently good, with helpful staff, rooms are fine and the breakfasts adequate,...

This is a decent hotel in an ideal location with Euston Station only a 10-15 minute walk away. Theatres, Big Ben and the London Eye are also within walking distance. Good size rooms with comfy beds. Bar area is nice and there are pubs and restaurants close by

On arrival the reception staff were friendly, efficient and quickly booked us in. We have stayed at the Bloomsbury Park for many years now, the rooms are getting tired and the road noise through single glazed and rattling sash windows does not make for a good night sleep. That said breakfast is excellent, the rooms are always clean and tidy...

Clean and friendly hotel. The team looked after our party well. Rooms has everything you need. Tea/coffee. Iron. Hairdryer. Safe. Beds really comfortable and decor good. Easy walking distance to theatre and bit further for Covent Garden. But tube or bus at the end of the street.

This hotel is in the perfect location to visit most of London's key attractions, literally a 5-10 minute walk from Holborn tube station. I stayed at the hotel for two nights. I had a corner room overlooking the main road. Although it was noisy, it wasn't loud enough to keep me awake. The room was clean, slightly well worn but...

I really enjoyed my stay here. We stayed from 12/26/16-12/29/16. The hotel was not very updated but it served it's purpose. The walls are very thin so you can pretty much hear everything going on with your neighbors. The rooms were small but not suffocating. The free breakfast was very good. They offered fresh crossaints, scrambled eggs, meats, juice etc....

Better than average, not quite very good; cracking location, excellent public transport of all sorts nearby. Bit of an issue at check-in, when I was told my reservation number wasn't correct, but soon sorted. Completed the survey I was sent after my stay & my few criticisms were addressed, except for my complaint about the proliferation of tinned fruit (really?!)...

Thankfully, this was a paid for business trip. The hotel felt somewhat tired and nothing stood out as worth mentioning as a positive point. A nasty smell from the bathroom drains and cremated breakfast sausages limited any chance of enjoyment event further. Avoid the rooms at the front as they can be exceptionally noisy.

This hotel was ideally situated for where I needed to be (between the City and Euston), but that was its greatest asset. It felt, and smelt, tired, from the moment I entered. The room was very dark (even by modern hotel standards), and whilst it was functional and catered for my needs on this visit I wouldn't have wanted to...
