Some good things, some areas that could be improved. But overall a great location and functional apartment. Location: Great, central to many of London's attractions. 10 min walk to nearest tube station. Would recommend a taxi from St Pancras/King's Cross if arriving with lots of luggage. Lots of great pubs, cafes close by. Highly recommend Grill Market around the corner... More

Booked for one night only , (luckily) , Upon arrival, and pushing door button, we were greeted by the brusque voice of the representative, I stated why we were there, and the reply was NAME !!. Not a good start, but having read other reviews was not suprised. !! We were then advised our room was on the top floor,... More

Booked a four night stay at 5 Doughty Street based on the nice reviews and reasonable price. However, upon arrival we were taken to another apartment, located some 10 minutes away, at Red Lion Street, where we apparently were to stay. On first sight, the apartment seemed fine, very new, with nice furnishing. However, when wanting to shower we discovered... More

Facilities are very good and the quality of furnishings. One bed apartment was a good size. Close to tube and buses. Recommend that a map showing where the main bus/tube lines are is included in a welcome pack and also some local taxi numbers. The price - but when you compare the facilities provided, this is comparable in London! I... More

Nice to have a place to feel 'at home' in London. Great one-bedroom flat opposite the Charles Dickens Museum and just around the corner from the British Museum, it is a well-put together place. I was lucky: ground floor with patio. Furnished by John Lewis' (nice change from IKEA). Only thing missing was a pair of scissors and a spaghetti... More

We stayed in flat 2 which is in the basement. It was perfect for a 1 night stay, with all the mod cons, great bathroom and kitchen/sitting room. Much more preferable for us than a hotel room. What a shame check out is at 10 am, we'd have liked to have stayed a little longer. Check in was easy, in... More

If you’re looking for somewhere more personal than a hotel and want to feel like a real resident, then you’re unlikely to find better than these apartments. The location is superb. They’re situated on a beautiful Georgian street in the heart of the historic literary district of Bloomsbury, which is surely one of the best areas of London in which... More

A lovely apartment in a very nice area of London – not too far to walk to the tube, restaurants and shops. Very clean room, lovely bathroom and they offer complimentry laundry facilities (washing and drying). Complimentary internet. A couple of comments for management to consider though: • We had to wait about 20 minutes and make two phone calls... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

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.

“If you have trouble climbing stairs or have heavy cases - ask for a ground floor unit. Number 3 was a one bedroom unit on the ground floor.”

“Ground floor has fewer steps, street-side lacks privacy, and will not be as warm. Upper floors will be quieter, have more privacy, but will have many stairs and will be hot due to 'chimney effect' of a building. Pick your poison.”
