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 throughout the week.

Stayed here Aug and September 2018. Had to go to work in London.

Hotel very clean, rooms comfortable and warm. For central London it was bizarrely quiet. Breakfast was top notch. All the staff on both visits were extremely welcoming and friendly. I don’t get why people complain

Hi I was wondering if there is car parking at this hotel if not can you advise where you could park thanks
There is no parking right outside the hotel, but there is underground parking available approx 3 minutes away from the hotel. If you show them your receipt that you stayed at the hotel, you only have to pay £15 for 24 hours parking. Hope I helped.

It there plenty to do in the evening within walking distance? Would you be able to walk to Covent Garden for a night out or need the tube? Thanks in advance
Hey Julie, This was our first time to London. So we did the usual tourist stuff during the day and relaxed during the evening time. Our daughter was there for 3 months studying abroad, so we let her show us around. Like John said there are plenty of places to eat. We like the Night and Day restaurant around the corner. If you have time, take a bus or walk to Honest Burger just a mile or so away. It was great food. The city mapper app is awesome and I highly recommend it. It will let you know how long it will take to walk, tub, or bus to any location in London. We used it every day.

"Aim for a room out book as quieter"
"Room no. 16 is good for families"
"I asked for 2 rooms to be close together which they did. I think they will do their upmost to oblige"
"Quietest room may be at back, not on Bedford, and not on 3rd floor."
"I stayed on the first (second to a Yank) floor, No. 5, facing the garden, not the street."
US$ 126 - US$ 236 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
