Got this hotel as part of a package deal with Superbreaks. £139 for 2 nights and rail travel. This is deinately the " poor relative" of the Imperial Hotel chain that has some nice properites around Russel Square and represent fantastic value. I was a bit concerned that toilet and shower facilities wre shared but my fears were unfounded. As...

I have spent three nights here, I had bussiness nearby, so the location was OK. I suppose that is the only advantage of the hotel. Shared bathroom, shared toilet, tiny little rooms, old bed, the windows are broken you cannot close them. I left the hotel completely exhausted.

This is one of the best value hotels I've found in London; the prices are extremely keen provided you book through the Imperial Hotels chain's own website, e.g. b&b for as little as about £35 at times, and two nights b&b plus three course dinner all-in for about £90: amazing! For dinner you are actually issued with a chit that...

Ok, so you've paid the cheaper side of £50 a night for a London hotel less than 5 mins from Kings cross. You get what youve paid for! You dont get en suite rooms and you dont get plush luxury. What you do get is clean (albeit shabby) room with clean towels and enough tea and coffeee supplies to keep...

Second time I've stayed here, again was a great budget hotel. Can't ask for more for location, comfy bed, clean room and friendly staff. Breakfast is decent too, it is dated and basic but can't expect much more for the price. There's no bar here though so useful to get a few drinks etc for your room. Also make sure...

For the price we paid, i found it excellent value for money. It is a basic hotel and quite old fashioned, however the rooms and bedding was clean. Shared bathrooms were also very clean and had individual bath mats to put down. Breakfast included which was bacon, sausages, eggs, beans, tomatoes, toast, cereal and was ok. Centrally located near to...

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
