My boyfriend gave his last name and immediately Andre greeted us by name and wished me a happy birthday!! We then checked in to be upgraded to a duluxe room, when entering the room, I was truly surprised by an...

For our 40th birthdays, my wife and I were given a London theatre break which included a night at the Bloomsbury. Having read the reviews in advance, both of us were looking forward to our stay with some excellent reviews seen. We were not disappointed!! On arrival at reception, Andre was not only aware of our names but also wished...

Average to Good, 3 as 3.5 is not possible. We popped into the Bloomsbury for coffee and a snack. It has a great location just off Tottenham Court Road, pleasant surroundings, not too busy and very convenient for a one hour meeting. I usually use the lobby for chats and coffee. The service always seems to lack a certain professionalism...

Fantastic hotel! Booked for a Christmas treat with my daughter and loved our stay here. Just round the corner from the tube and easy walk to theatre. Family friendly, staff great, and lovely atmosphere. Amazing breakfast! Would definitely stay here again.

First, I'll start by saying that I would definitely recommend this hotel - I have stayed here twice with my partner - we loved it the first time and loved it even more the second time!

Everything about our stay at the Bloomsbury was perfect. From the great welcome at the door right through to the complimentary bottle of water when we left the whole stay was fantastic. The rooms were perfectly sized with a nice comfy bed. Will definitely be staying here again

Apart from the room size (tooooo small for 2 people with 4 cases) the hotel, its staff and facilities were excellent for our 3 night stay. It is a great location in the West End, close to transport and across the road from a fabulous Indian Reastaurant
