Was quite pleased with the room on 7th floor but it smelt of smoke and we didn't have a room with a view but wasn't a big problem. Staff at reception was very good advising and booking our tickets for different venues. In a good position and not too far from the tube. Lots of places to drink and eat....

Had a good stay at this Hotel. The rooms were average in size and tidy. The location was excellent, it's close to the British museum and Oxford Street. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was traditional. We both enjoyed our stay here with my girlfriend.

Nice room overlooking the Park but it was too hot. Staff friendly apart from at breakfast where they looked miserable. A smile goes a long way. Left luggage room very useful and Hotel very central. Plenty of places to eat nearby and great real ale at Lord John Russell pub. Breakfast could be tastier.

Opted for this place as it was democratically priced for central London. Regretted the decision - next time I'd rather pay extra 20 quid and stay at a chain hotel nearby, at least they always maintain a predictable standard of cleanliness and furnishing. Those beds on wheels feel like a safety hazard. Disco music from somewhere nearby was reverberating through...

This hotel is good if you are on a budget. The twin rooms have beds on wheels which was annoying when trying to get comfortable to fall asleep. The restaurant was fine for breakfast, but it was a little off-putting knowing that after breakfast, the restaurant then serves Indian food.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Tavistock overlooks one of Bloomsbury's prettiest garden squares. The Tavistock has a stylish Art Deco entrance, welcoming you to this popular, friendly hotel. Guests may enjoy dining on the sun terrace of Jacques Wine Bar, with its extensive wine list. Or indeed, relaxing with a pint of guest ale in the Tav Bar within the 1930s style ground floor. The Tavistock is perfectly located for the health club and American style bowling alley as well as the exciting sites of the capital. ... more   less
