We spent two days at the hotel, the room was tastefully decorated with a really nice bathroom, nice toiletries! The food was excellent. The Bloomsbury Club bar is really nice with a lot of different drinks on offer and friendly staff. Very busy though.

I like to keep reviews simple and relatable so I'll keep it short: Staff was most helpful (they switched out room to accommodate my pregnant wife without hesitation) and, most importantly, the bath towels are amazing. Every bath towel should be so big :) It's the little things that matter.

Having visited London countless times and tried various hotels (most of which turned out to be pretty mediocre despite their prices), I was pleasantly surprised by the standards at The Bloomsbury. Customer service is top-notch and amenities are excellent. Password-free WiFi access with good reception was a big plus for me. The breakfast manager (I believe her name was Maria)...
