Stayed for one night at this hotel to do a show and see the sights with another couple. We were early arriving, but the staff were very friendly and helpful and checked to see if the rooms were ready. They were so they booked us in straight away and showed us to our rooms. ( The lift is small, but...

Me and my friend just stayed at this hotel recently. On arrival and early check in at 1pm was no problem and the check in process took only couple of minutes. Our room was beautiful, clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and plentiful. Staff in the breakfast room were amazingly friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. All...

My wife and I love Covent Garden, but find some of the hotels around that area are just a bit too pricey for us. So, a bit of web searching and we came across Bloomsbury Park Hotel. What a super place this is. We arrived at the hotel at about 11.00am so fully understood that we could not sign in,...

We booked a room here back in September and paid in full. Turned up today at 5pm after a long day to check in.... Was told there was no room for us! They had "over committed" themselves. I had called two days prior to confirm the room and this issue was not mentioned! Shocking service, would not recommend this hotel...

This is a good deal in terms of price, given the location, especially for business travelers looking for something within a government per-diem rate. Only real downside was the squeaky floors, but you get them even in the nicer and more expensive hotels in London. The new free WiFi is a great addition to the Thistle kingdom - works really...
