The Bloomsbury is my home base in London and it never disappoints. Very helpful staff, comfortable room and perfect location for me. Near the bustle of Oxford Street and Soho, this place is a classy oasis of charm and comfort. And, i think it's an excellent deal. Highly recomend.

If you are looking for a hotel with excellent service and a convenient location, then I highly recommend The Bloomsbury. Every staff member I encountered was friendly, efficient, and accommodating, beginning with Sabastian, who processed my check-in. The elegant, but comfortable lobby immediately provided a warm and inviting introduction to a hotel that delivers a high level of service. I...

We stayed at the Bloomsbury for 6 nights, and everything was great. Especially the concierge did an amazing job to make us feel at home. The restaurants they recommended, and the places to visit were great. Overall the hotel is very comfortable, and excellent to rest after a long day touring the city.
