The Arosfa is a great choice for a budget hotel in a great location for academics and art or theatre lovers. It's right across from the U of London, and just a couple of blocks from the British Museum. It's also on excellent bus lines to the theater district and the National Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery, Westminster Abbey and...

This hotel is a beautiful little place in Soho, great location for getting around London. The rooms are very small but warm and cosy, the ensuite facilities are great and the staff are polite and friendly. Breakfast options were adequate, and there is a bar and lounge which are beautiful.

I enjoyed my stay. Plusses include the free breakfast and the lovely sitting room/parlor on the first floor. Private bathrooms. Not very far from the underground station, and city bus line right outside. Minuses include ridiculously small bathroom and shower barely usable. Host cannot sell or direct you to a postoffice to buy stamps! (Go to a convenience store around...

This affordable, well-maintained hotel was just what I was looking for. Rooms were clean and nicely designed, and the whole place had a fun, neo-Victorian vibe. Delicious full English breakfast included in the price. Highly recommended for folks looking for a less expensive place to stay that doesn't sacrifice comfort. (Loved the Bloomsbury Coffee House just down the street.)

The hospitality right from being met to the door to breakfast the next day was impeccable and of a high standard. The room was a decent size with all the mod cons expected of a high end luxury hotel but refreshingly surprising and not expected from a family run establishment. Would definitely come and stay here again.

My wife and I stayed here on our first trip to London in December 2016. We arrived earlier than the check in time and Theresa was just lovely. She was very accommodating, she offered us coffee, tea and cake and told us to leave our bags there til later in the afternoon so we could go do some exploring around...

Our room was perfect, comfortable and cozy with a modern bathroom. Attention to detail is the name of the game here and thats what you need for the hustle and bustle of a week of theater in London. Housekeepers were excellent, our room neat as a pin daily. This location was perfect for us to canvas the city neighborhoods and...

So to review what other reviews all say and is true: rooms are small and the breakfast is great. What many reviews don't say, is the management knows how to wring the best out of that space - outlets available, wifi solid, bathroom intelligently put together and clean. The breakfasts are among the best I've encountered. They run a tight...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Arosfa Hotel is a refurbished 200-year old Georgian Town House in the heart of historic Bloomsbury district, the former home of the famous Pre-Raphaelite artist Sir John Everett Millais. The cool white garden squares and wide streets of Bloomsbury have been a pull to thinkers for centuries, and it sometimes seems like every second house has a blue plaque denoting that a great writer, scientist or philosopher once inhabited the building. It was in Bloomsbury that Karl Marx created communism, Virginia Woolf defined the twentieth century British novel, and Charles Darwin first conceived the theory of natural selection. The imposing bulk of the British Museum, home to seven millennia of human art and artefacts, dominates the area, and there are plenty of other academic institutions including Birkbeck College, the beautiful University of London Library, and RADA, London's grandest drama school. ... more   less
