Well run, friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are clean tidy and well maintained. Our only issue was for my husband aged 88 the steep stairway to the 2nd floor bedroom we had been allocated. The owner said we should have asked for a room on a lower floor. Breakfast was excellent the English breakfast was good quality and freshly...

I stayed here with my partner for a long weekend, location is perfect, close to underground, train station and burger king! There's plenty of places to eat near the hotel, we visited a nice little Indian. Breakfast was standard, personally I found mine quite small and would have liked the option to pay for a larger breakfast. There is also...

Helpful staff, very accommodating. Free breakfast. We stayed across the street in their other building. Very quite and clean, although room was small it had everything needed. Close to transportation hub at Kingscross, and not far from Russell Square station as well. Easy walk around the Bloomsbury area and the British Museum area. Will return for sure. Not a modern...

We stayed here for one night to get the Eurostar to Belgium and we thought it was a really nice hotel. Staff were really friendly and helpful and the breakfast was lovely but we had a bit of a rush in the morning so couldn't enjoy it properly. I would definitely recommend it, really nice hotel and really well priced.

I had a clean, quiet, comfortable room with all the necessary facilities. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. I left an important personal item behind and they saved it and mailed it to me. The location is ideal as it's very close to both King's Cross and St. Pancras. Breakfast options are extensive - I was...

I arrived and initially was put in a bedroom across the road. There is no lift for those of you who would be concerned about that. Anyways, i got to the room and it smelled. As soon as you opened the door - it smelt like an animal had died in there. I've stayed in hostels with better hygiene standards....

Neighbourhood Profile

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.
