Staff were brilliant and genuinely helpful and friendly. Our check out time of 12 on Sunday after a Saturday night was much appreciated as well as the really tasty breakfast (best bacon I've had for ages) available until 12 too. Room clean and comfortable. Located on the Piccadilly line made it really easy to get around London. Nice atmosphere in...

Chose this hotel as part of a theatre package with two close friends. The concierge was excellent and reception staff very welcoming. Triple room was great but very business like for three ladies. Only a tiny table between beds, but other than this no complaints. However, after a fantastic meal out and a great laugh at Abigail`s party I was...

I stayed here 10 years ago and I don't think it's changed any since then (also stayed there for two nights May 2012) The cons: no Internet (but there is a Starbucks a few minutes away and you buy a drink you can use their wifi) The included breakfast is tea, toast, and cornflakes (not worth it to me) There...

Staying in Bloomsbury

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.
