Booked as a group for 3 rooms. When we arrived only one was available. The guy at reception couldn't care less and tried to move some guests to another hotel at an extra cost. Turned out there were no rooms there either. The room we ALL ended up staying in (some of us on the floor) was the size of...

Terrible hotel, looks luxurious when you arrive in the reception area it states free parking but this is only a Sunday you have to try find parking for the rest of the time. We took a look at the tiny room we was staying in and instantly knew we had to find an alternative hotel which we did at a...

We were awoken at 2 am, by leaking water from the ceiling (it rained heavily that night). After informing the sole young receptionist, the only room they could offer us was an uncleaned, untidy, grubby room which had recently been vacated. At 2 am, we didn't have much choice, so we accepted the room. However they did NOT clean the...

We found the toilet was in a separate room to the shower... this wasn't a problem, although it was a tad small as our legs stuck out and we couldn't shut the door! It was quite entertaining. For a short stay we would recommend this hotel. It's a good price for London and we have stayed in worse. It's worth...

If you just need somewhere easy to sleep, that is on the night tube lines, it is perfect as it is a two min walk from Kings Cross and the Victoria line and Northern line both run throughout the night on the weekends making it very easy to get back. For a hotel of luxury it was not. The room...

Parking was not free as promised! Staff member was unhelpful at resolving this issue. We booked this hotel purely because we understood we would have free parking throughout our weekend stay. However on arrival we were told we would need to get up early and move the car from the road to a NCP (which they would not pay for)...

We stayed here for 1 night, it was on offer online & it was good enough for what we needed. If you're staying for more than one night then I would recommend paying for a bigger room, our double was very small & the bathroom was extremely small (shower was basically over the toilet). The room itself was very clean,...

This hotel is in a great location and is reasonably priced. The staff we saw were great and really friendly as they allowed us to leave our bags to go shopping for a few hours whilst our rooms were being prepared (no check in till after 2pm). There's free wifi in all rooms and reception (there's a sign with code...

We booked this at the beginning of a 6-week Europe trip for a several days stay in London. Although the room was tiny and poorly maintained, we concluded, after spending half a day looking, that we would not spend our limited time in London searching for a better alternative for our return to the city at the end of our...

Overall, relatively satisfied with our stay particularly for the price, just a few things with the room: 1. Our window was lodged open with a pack of toilet roll. 2. A few key buttons on the tv remote didn't work, including the button to access the freeview guide and the channel up button. As this was the case we had...

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.
