Everything about this hotel was beautiful. I highly recommend it to anyone going to London who has a medium-high budget. It was really close to the tube, staff was extremely helpful, and the room was super nice.

We had an excellent stay at The Bloomsbury, all the staff were very friendly and couldn't be more helpful, the location is excellent for sightseeing or if you are going to the theatre as we did it is only a ten minute walk to Shaftesbury Avenue.
