This is a budget hotel.£50 a night in central London is astonishing value. The rooms are basic but impeccably clean. One bathroom shared between four rooms but I've never had to wait to use one. Thoroughly recommended.

This is not a hotel that you would book to have a luxury stay in London. Very basic but stay-able if you are only in the room for a night or two.

This budget hotel mostly feels like a hostel. The bathrooms are shared, but they are clean and quite nice. The rooms are kinda outdated, but ok for one night sleep.

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighbourhood Profile
Bloomsbury
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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Offering exceptional value in an excellent central location, the County Hotel is the perfect place to relax after a busy day exploring the city. A short walk from three mainline stations, it's also halfway between world-renowned Oxford Street shopping and the food, fashion and festival atmosphere of Camden Market. Small and friendly, it's become the essential central London choice for sightseers and shoppers on a budget. All 175 rooms have wash-basins and bathrooms are shared between four rooms. But there's more to the County than resting your head - be sure to begin your London experience with our complimentary English breakfast. It's hearty enough to fuel even the most action-packed stay in the capital. ... more   less
