Spur of the moment weekend trip to London with my daughter and managed to get a great last minute online deal for a superior room. Chose Bloomsbury based on its central location and previous reviews.

Very welcoming, scented candles and comfy sofas in reception area create a great atmosphere. Room had everything we could wish for and very stylish. Not huge room or bathroom but everything had been thought of: minibar, tea/coffee/ robes and slippers, huge very comfy bed, lovely toiletries. Turn down service replaced all our towels and left us bottled water by the bed.

Staff very helpful, concierge charged our phones for us while we ate breakfast as we had forgotten a charger! Breakfast buffet plentiful and lots of 'cooked to order' hot options too.

Some London hotels are nothing but a base for the night but The Bloomsbury had a really personal feel to it and we will definitely return.

I booked this hotel as a birthday treat for a weekend of sightseeing in London. The building looks great from the outside and is in a fantastic location near Covent Garden, the British Museum and the West End. The interior has been nicely renovated with stylish and comfortable decor. The staff are friendly and we were given a spacious quiet room as requested. This hotel is definitely good value for it's location, high standard of accommodation and service and I would highly reccommend it.

Room Tip: Corner rooms on the 6th floor are very quiet and spacious

Just had another wonderful overnight visit to this great hotel who also booked our excellent seats at The Globe Theatre to see Taming of the Shew. The staff were their usual courteous selves, the room was fabulous - spacious and well appointed and the pre-show dinner delicious. The concierge gave precise instructions for the wretched congestion charges and the best wayto get to the Theatre and the whole trip was smooth and trouble-free.

We always use The Bloomsbury for our London visits and cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you to the Manager and all his staff, hope to see you again very soon

Booked this hotel for a one night stay to absorb London post Olympics. The hotel has recently been renovated, the building looks wonderful from the outside and it just keeps getting better when you walk through the doors. Our room was beautifully appointed, with a nice big comfy bed and decent size flat screen tv. The room was small, but unless you pay for a suite, this is to be expected in London, regardless of where you stay. That said, it was very stylist with a lovely bathroom. Linen was lovely on the bed and the Towels were fabulously fluffy and soft (these things are very important to us). The location of this hotel was one of the prime reasons we booked it and it is great for those who want to be near Covent Garden, Leicester Square and the main shopping areas. We can't comment on the food or drink as we didn't partake - mainly because the prices for us, seemed very high, but you are spoilt for choice for resturants and bars in the local area and in London generally which suited us and we preferred to eat whilst out and about.
