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.

This is the second time I have stayed in Pickwick Hall. It is a very charming, cozy and quiet place in the heart of London. If you're looking for place that feels like home instead of a regular hotel or hostel, Pickwick Hall is the place. Patrick and the staff were very friendly

Thank you. We want our guests to feel that they are in a place where they enjoy staying, more than a convenient place of accommodation. We enjoy meeting and talking to our guests and their stories are always of interest to us.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Positives excellent location, price reasonable, bedding clean and staff seem friendly. However the main reason for 1 star review is that the place is in a terrible state; dated carpet not fixed to floor properly, old and odd furniture, lock on my room

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I wish that you had spoken to me before you left because I would like more information about some of your points. Yes, much of the furniture is old; I think it is in keeping with the architecture of this area and this building, which is 217 years old and most of our guests report agreement. I am looking at changing some of the furniture for practical reasons, principally to reduce the size of wardrobes and so create more space in rooms. Some rooms have buit-in wardrobes. Most bedrooms have carpets that were professionally laid about 3 years ago; two bedrooms had new and professionally-laid carpets 2 months ago. There are some areas of heavy use in the front hall and sitting room where the carpet is very worn and these carpets will be replaced soon. Part of a join in the sitting room carpet has been opened by movement of a chair; this will be re-sewn. Yes, we found after your departure that the lock on you bedroom door was damaged. This was repaired the same day and is fully secure. Locks on all other bedroom doors were inspected and tested on the same day and all were found to be secure. I have tested the taps in the wash basins in your bedroom and the toilets on the same floor and all worked correctly. Each wash basin has two taps: a hot-water tap and a cold-water tap, not mixer taps. I hope that my comments help and regret that we did not speak at the time to fully understand your points.

Excellent hostel friendly quiet good facilities and easy to help yourself breakfast. My only concern really was that I would prefer a locker or equivalent in the room because I wanted to bring some valuable clothes and shoes with me but felt uncomfortable doing so when I would

Dear Naomi, Thank you for your inquiry. Guests are given keys to the front door as well as to their rooms when they check-in. You would then be able to return here at any time of the night. Kind regards, Patrick Patrick Hancock Pickwick Hall
