We stayed at The Bloomsbury for my husbands 40th birthday and I have to say, the service was exemplary! The staff and hotel helped make our weekend celebrations truly memorable. We even managed to get a place at the outdoor cinema and had a wonderful evening enjoying the delights of The Dalloway Terrace where Joel took excellent care of us.... More

Location is very convenient for Oxford Street, Regent Street and Covent Garden- all are within walking distance if you don't mind walking for 15minutes or so. The staff were brilliant and the Hotel is beautiful. Only slight downside were the 'noisy neighbours' on our first night! The bar areas are both lovely and relaxing and the cocktails were lovely.

Other than the nice ambience of the hotel, the room is very comfortable, staff are friendly and helpful. The location is great as there are many restaurants and shopping within walking distance. I came for business trip but I would love to come back again for leisure travel!

We chose the hotel for its proximity to the Shaftesbury Theater as I have recently had knee surgery and cannot walk far. Although we appreciated the hotel has a good position and facilities we still felt aggrieved at having to pay £230 for a nights accommodation without breakfast. The room was very nice and cosy with everything you would expect... More
