Booked the Bloomsbury very late as the room I was given in the over booked Radisson Blu Kenilworth just along the road was the smallest room I have ever had...that's for another review. The Bloomsbury is a different league to the two Radisson's just along the road. Very nice room though when I took the wine out of the mini...

I went to The Bloomsbury with my friends last week for an afternoon tea. The place was very cozy; perfect for relaxing and doing some catching up with friends. But it wouldn't have been a great experience if we didn't have Joel, who warmly attended us during our stay.

Hotel overall was great. We were there from Friday through Sunday. Only disappointment was that the Dalloway Terrace was closed (we knew this when we booked) and the ambience of the alternative which was the dinning room was very poor (but food and service still good).

Great Hotel in a great location - we have been here before and the high standards have been maintained - the staff are friendly and very efficient and the quality of the food served is superb - the Hotel is a short walk from several theatres, Chinatown and the shopping area - well done The Bloomsbury!

Enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea in the "Dalloway Lounge" yesterday. We were shown to our table immediately on arrival and within minutes had been offered our first pot of tea. There was an impressive selection of black, white and green teas on the menu. The food was of a high standard and well presented. We were asked if we would...

Fairly spacious room for a London hotel! Steps away from the British Museum. Steps away from the nearest tube station. Location location location. It is definitely well worth the money. The hotel staff are friendly and courteous. Lots of plug in outlets thank goodness. Nespresso machine in room! Best in room coffee! First time in England, so this is something...

Loved the hotel. It's close to Tottenham Ct. and Oxford Circus stations. It's also really close to major shopping outlets. I like to workout - they have a tiny gym, but there's an excellent YMCA right opposite them. Rooms are comfortable, good WiFi as well. I'd recommend this to business travelers. I do think my room was a tad bit...

The third time I've stayed at The Bloomsbury. Reason for staying was because of our great stays before. We stayed with our kids this time. The kids were royally treated with a teepee tent over a bed and bathroom accessories. Really lovely touch. Again the staff were polite and nothing was a problem. Cannot fault the Dalloway Terrace. Really good...

We had a wonderful experience at The Bloomsbury from start to finish. I had previously called to see if we could have an early check in as we had a big day ahead and they said they could not guarantee but would see what they could do.

The hotel is well appointed, extremely clean and welcoming. It is set in the heart of Bloomsbury within easy walking distance to many of central london's attractions. I'd had a long and arduous journey and upon my arrival the concierge recognised this and provided me with hot damp towels to freshen up. My room was spacious with a delightful bathroom....
