Such an amazing weekend in a beautiful hotel. Upon arrival staff were really friendly and made sure we had everything we needed and the concierge was very helpful. Arriving in the room there was a beautiful (in taste and decoration) Victoria sponge birthday cake waiting for me along with a card which was a wonderful gesture. The rooms are very...

Visited towards the end of July with my girlfriend and we were both extremely happy with the hotel. Fantastic location, very accessible and close proximity to everything you want to do. The staff we're a delight, always polite, helpful and very well turned out. The restaurant and bar, both staffed by a charming young man during our visit, were fantastic....

Our room was comfortably appointed, booking process was super easy, but although it was a nice hotel, it didn't feel 'extra special' in any way. The location was fantastic! The Bloomsbury is a short and easy walk to Seven Dials and Covent Garden, which made it very easy to find a good dining option. Tips for Seven Dials & Covent...

We chose this hotel for its proximity to Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club. What a treat we've had. With the central line not stopping at Tottenham Court Road at the moment we travelled mainly on the Bakerloo line on a very warm day! The hot towel on arrival in the hotel was therefore extremely welcome!! Our room was lovely. Clean bright...

The Bloomsbury is nice inside but the courteousness of the staff stands out the most. Everything went smoothly at the front desk. Even better was the hotel bar. The bartender Joe continually went above and beyond the call of good service to make sure we were satisfied. Even the maintenance man who was called out of bed after midnight to...

After my 'not so good last stay' here, I was quite eager to try this hotel again to see if things had changed for the better. Although it is still possible to get into the hotel without much bother, or key card access to the elevator, it seemed there was much more staff on hand than last time. This is...

Reviewed 2 August 2015

Bloomsbury is lively neighborhood, close to many conveniences, but the hotel is very quiet and quite luxurious. Great attention to detail in all matters, but that also means that you can't check a little early (even when exhausted from an overnight flight) unless the room is perfect. The heated tiles in the bathroom are always a treat, and the bed...
