A bit of a splurge, but cheaper than most Manhattan hotels. After we got over our initial disappointment about room and bed size (inescapable in London), we began to love this hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and always friendly. The location is ideal - just two blocks from the British Museum, a short walk to most West End Theatres...

I always love walking into the Bloomsbury...the doors open and you leave the hustle and bustle of stations and busy streets behind. The whole ambiance of the reception welcomes you...the mood lighting and the wonderful smell of the Bloomsbury signature candle...not to mention extremely friendly, efficient staff. A hot towel is presented at reception...this is the start of the calming...

Have to say really enjoyed my experience of the Bloomsberry. Took my girlfriend for an overnight stay to visit the Dominion Theatre and overall it was a very positive experience. Room was a little small but perhaps that's normal for central London. Only downside for me was the price of drinks in the Terrace Bar which were exorbitant! Mind you...
