Not sure why people complain about this place, but if you are a single traveler wanting a budget place to crash for a night or two, there is very little wrong here. For me, last friday it was a place to dump your bag then crash down after a gig and jump on a train first thing next morning. Yes... More

Stayed for a weekend in August. Bit of an unusual place but very convenient near the bus stop & underground stops in Euston. Strange you leave the room key with the porter and take a token when you leave. Rooms leave a lot to be desired, shared bathroom per 4-5 rooms which isn't very nice. Clean bathrooms though. Everything just... More

Friend booked this as we were down in London for a gig/drink and needed somewhere to crash. Price was unbelievable for location, I think it was £17 each for a two singles!

We paid £68 for a double room with breakfast. I was aware before booking that the rooms do not have an en-suite bathroom and to be honest it made little difference to us.

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighbourhood Profile
Bloomsbury
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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Offering exceptional value in an excellent central location, the County Hotel is the perfect place to relax after a busy day exploring the city. A short walk from three mainline stations, it's also halfway between world-renowned Oxford Street shopping and the food, fashion and festival atmosphere of Camden Market. Small and friendly, it's become the essential central London choice for sightseers and shoppers on a budget. All 175 rooms have wash-basins and bathrooms are shared between four rooms. But there's more to the County than resting your head - be sure to begin your London experience with our complimentary English breakfast. It's hearty enough to fuel even the most action-packed stay in the capital. ... more   less
