    Well, it's clean and simple. Tiny room. v basic - no TV, tiny white towel and a slither of soap in a wrapper. Indifferent welcome. Aging lift, lots of stairs. Basement room for breakfast with no windows. Having said this it's cheap for its location...More

    Really nice B&B, free WiFi with good signal, room was adequate for the 2 of us and quiet, breakfast was nice. Museum is literally round the corner, very close to Tube stations, cinema and local amenities.

    The location can be hardly better - a quiet street in magnificent Bloomsbury. A lot of cool places within a walking distance. Our room was adequate in size, with pleasant view, and with clean and comfortable bath.

    Booked into room 204. Room a lot larger than I expected, with a sink, Tea and Coffee, wardrobe and a comfortable double bed. Parked in nearby carpark - beware, the prices are steep (£32/day) but parking is expensive all over London. Reductions can be negotiated,...More

    The Ruskin is an average price for the area, but it’s not in a good state. Overall it felt more like a run-down hostel (like some of its close neighbours) than a hotel. It’s so sad to see a beautiful early 18th-century house treated in...More

    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

    Yes, I have to say that the full English breakfast was very good - if a little simple and mass produced.

    Agree with earlier answers. We came from Kent so came into Victoria and caught the bus. I now think the bus is preferable to the Tube for sightseeing, if you have the time!
