Very very good hotel. We had a wonderful stay. It is very well located, 2 min walk to the British museum and near almost all the London touristic sights. We never took the subway or the bus. The service in this hotel is perfect.

We spent four nights at the Bloomsbury and really enjoyed our time. The location is perfect especially if you are interested in the theatre. It is also very convenient to the British Museum. The Tottenham station is close by for train service. We purchased a very economically and convenient seven day Oyster Pass for access to the trains and buses....

I stayed here just for one night but was very pleased. The hotel is in a ideal location for access to the underground.

Really nice hotel in a perfect location. Close enough to walk to everything, but on a quiet street where it is easy to sleep.

The Bloomsbury exceeded my expectations for my first trip to London. Every staff member we encountered was so helpful with recommendations for places to visit or eat. Any time we needed assistance we were promptly taken care of and made to feel at home. I have no complaints about the hotel and hope to visit again in the future.
