Not sure haw many times we have stayed in the county. For where it's located and the price I'm pretty sure can't find a better deal. Never had a problem with the rooms , buffet breakfast is always good. Look forward to our next visit.

Absolutely loved this place, 8o's decor. Shared bathrooms and toilets. (With plenty of towels and surprisingly clean) Absolute bargain for the location. The rooms have not been updated since the 80's (so you may have a little bit of peeling paper or a room that needs a lick of paint) but you pay for what you get.. it is however...

Neighbourhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Offering exceptional value in an excellent central location, the County Hotel is the perfect place to relax after a busy day exploring the city. A short walk from three mainline stations, it's also halfway between world-renowned Oxford Street shopping and the food, fashion and festival atmosphere of Camden Market. Small and friendly, it's become the essential central London choice for sightseers and shoppers on a budget. All 175 rooms have wash-basins and bathrooms are shared between four rooms. But there's more to the County than resting your head - be sure to begin your London experience with our complimentary English breakfast. It's hearty enough to fuel even the most action-packed stay in the capital. ... more   less
