The Mentone Hotel is a bed and breakfast situated on beautiful Cartwright Gardens in the Bloomsbury area of Central London. The hotel has been owned and managed by the same family since 1972 and has long been a popular choice with tourists and business travelers due to its pleasant surroundings and convenient location. We are just a stone's throw away from The British Museum, University of London, The British Library, Oxford Street, Eurostar, the West End Theatre District, and the neighbouring areas of Soho, Holborn and Covent Garden.The hotel occupies three townhouses on a Georgian crescent and consists of five levels (lower ground floor, ground floor, first floor, second floor and third floor). The townhouses are Grade II listed and the hotel has no lifts (elevators). We are a non-smoking establishment.

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.

No water in the shower in the morning, terrible feedback, and manager do not answer. It is not a hotel if you want to work and need to shower in the morning. When complaining they offered an insult as compensation. They should have refunded the whle amount. I read that many

"if you have mobility issues ask for a ground floor room but you may struggle even then as breakfast is served in the basement."
"only stayed in one room so couldn't judge"
"Rooms in basement may be loud because breakfast is served there; my room on the top floor was very quiet"
"Do not go to room 2, convenient but noisy."
"Room 16 was clean and looked recently redecorated. Lower floors are more susceptible to noise i.e. doorbell and reception."
