“Great value, nice hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

My sister and I stayed in a three-person room at the Arosfa for a three-day break. We warmly recommend the hotel, which had everything we wanted: The location was great, with easy walking distance to British Museum, Oxford Street and the theatre district. Goodge street tube station is very close, and there are a lot of nice pubs, restaurants and cafés nearby. The hotel itself was neat, clean, simply, but tastefully decorated, with small but cosy and clean rooms. The beds were very comfortable. There was free wi-fi in all rooms (sometimes a bit erratic), a nice lounge for guests and very good breakfast. Last but not least Tessa and Attila were extremely nice hosts, friendly, welcoming and helpful. For all this, I think the hotel was extremely good value. I would gladly stay there again.

Stayed in the family room, clean and tidy, comfy bed and great service with a smile at breakfast. Would recommend to a friend and would definitely book again with this hotel.

From the very first moment of being welcomed at the door, I enjoyed my stay at the Arosfa Hotel. A beautiful building, well appointed throughout, wonderful hosts and delicious breakfast. So difficult to find well priced accommodation in London that you would actually want to return to - well this is it. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: I stayed in a single room (No. 3), small but newly refurbished, well designed and did the job nicely...

This was our first time in Arosfa. Attila and Tessa made the stay perfect. The room was good for our family, location is great and breakfast more than we expected

From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave you feel appreciated and welcomed. The rooms are perfect and the location is close to the subway to take you anywhere in the city. I recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking to stay in London at a fair price.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Arosfa Hotel is a refurbished 200-year old Georgian Town House in the heart of historic Bloomsbury district, the former home of the famous Pre-Raphaelite artist Sir John Everett Millais. The cool white garden squares and wide streets of Bloomsbury have been a pull to thinkers for centuries, and it sometimes seems like every second house has a blue plaque denoting that a great writer, scientist or philosopher once inhabited the building. It was in Bloomsbury that Karl Marx created communism, Virginia Woolf defined the twentieth century British novel, and Charles Darwin first conceived the theory of natural selection. The imposing bulk of the British Museum, home to seven millennia of human art and artefacts, dominates the area, and there are plenty of other academic institutions including Birkbeck College, the beautiful University of London Library, and RADA, London's grandest drama school. ... more   less
