The location is superb, based one street north of Oxford Street just off the junction with Tottenham Court Road. For a night out in town or for shopping, this is simply perfect. On arrival you get a warm welcome within the art decor styled reception area. The hotel itself is smart, chic and unpretentious. The interior of the hotel is...

I contacted Brian Murphy and his staff (the concierge two years ago) by email and arranged trips to Wimbledon, Highcleare Castle (for Downton Abbey on public television) and Bath! He and his staff were extremely helpful. I emailed him because I was in the United States. The food at The Bloomsbury was the best!!! The room was great and we...

We felt that The Bloomsbury was very reasonably priced considering how luxurious and well positioned it is. The staff we very friendly and our room was spacious and spotlessly clean. The services in the room were good and we had a very comfortable night.

I proposed to my girlfriend on that trip to London and the Bloomsbury really helped make it the best day of our lives. Julia Falz was the one that helped organize the special extra, but everything was great. We only used the hotel room so I can't speak for the other facilities, but there was a lot of them.
