This hotel does exactly what it says on the tin, it's one of the cheapest hotels so close to the West End (there's literally a theatre at the end of the road). Whilst we only stayed one night, the room was a good size and a great location. The heating was very good as it was January and the room...

I stayed here for one night and paid an over-priced £75 for the privilege. My room was very basic to say the least. The bedding and towels were clean, but the room was fairly grubby with cobwebs on the ceiling, worn and manky carpet, tired fixtures and fittings and a old loose lock on the door.

The toilet was disgusting (there was "a shower" too and it was basically the toilet). Dirty rooms (so small that the luggages barely entered in it) and NO BREAKFAST. They say free breakfast but there was no breakfast at all (and the staff wasn't nice). If you pay in euro they apply a change that is 1£=1.50€ (so it is...

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.
