Very good location room ready for early check in. Great not having to check out until 12 noon. Staff helpful and friendly. Would stay again. Good to have a fridge in the room, just adds to that bit of extra convenience.

Can't fault the hotel. All employees are friendly and efficient, hotel is extremely clean and breakfast is very good value.Location is excellent. Request a room at the back for the best night's sleep.

I cannot rate this hotel because, despite my best efforts I didn't stay here. I booked rooms on line and was directed to the Accor site and invited to become a member. I did this. I then expected an email confirming my booking - nothing arrived. I then checked the Accor site to see if it was recorded as booked...

The Mercure Bloomsbury is an excellent hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the rooms are very quiet. I stayed for twelve days while doing research at the British Library, which is very close. The hotel was close enough to main attractions to walk. The restaurant in the hotel is lovely as well, with a great breakfast buffet....

I've stayed here many times and it has always been a reasonably priced and comfortable stay (apart from once when there was a hen party in adjoining rooms...) I normally have a room at the back of the hotel, but this time forgot to request and was given one at the front. I didn't have time to ask to change...
