“Been there several times”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

We love the British Museum, and have visited many hotels in the area during the years. This hotel is by far the best we have stayed at, and we keep coming back.

Less than a minutes walk from the museum, very friendly and caring staff, clean and tidy, and with a great breakfast buffet.

Highly recommended.

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for your continued support and for taking the time to share your review on Tripadvisor.

We are delighted to be within walking distance of The British Museum (less than a minute walk) which houses a vast collection of world art and artefacts, It was interesting to read recent press release from London and Partners, which stated the most popular visitor attraction in 2013 remained The British Museum which saw a 20% increase in its visitor numbers! – making it the museum’s most successful year on record. In 2nd place, was the National Gallery.

We work hard to ensure that the building’s rich literary heritage continues today whilst at the same time offering guests a modern combination of attentive service, luxurious bedrooms and four star deluxe facilities.

I look forward to welcome you back to The Bloomsbury Street Hotel in the not too distance future.

Sincerely,

Hasnain N. Alloo
General Manager

Staff was very polite and accommodating. Room was just what I needed - large bathroom, great street view, comfortable. The location is central to all the best parts of London and most popular destinations were easily walkable.

Room Tip: Ask for a street view.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for staying at The Bloomsbury Street Hotel on your recent trip to London and for taking the time to share your review with us.

We are indeed in the heart of the West End and along with the British Museum itself, the famous theatres of Covent Garden and Leicester Square, cafes and bars of Soho, and world-class retail therapy of Oxford Street are all within walking distance. Nearby Underground stations, Tottenham Court Road and Holborn, also provide easy access to the rest of the city.

As a team, we strive to exceed our guests expectations and a review such as yours is so rewarding when the teams efforts are noticed by our guests, I will personally pass your compliments to the entire team.

May I take this opportunity to wish you the very best and can only hope that you will give us the opportunity to welcome you back.

Sincerely,

Hasnain N. Alloo

Stayed for one night celebrating a friend's 'special' birthday. Was warmly welcomed by the concierge (his name I did not get - to which I apologise) but was there Saturday(yesterday) and today. The receptionist who checked us in was really efficient and helpful and what was pleasing was that she smiled....not many do.

There was a nice smell on entering the hotel the kind you get in a high class spa..very relaxing.

On entering our room we were pleasantly pleased. The room was very clean and on trend. The bathroom was ideal with a 'walk in' shower and to our surprise we had comfortable towelling robes each for use,,,we had had an upgrade!! Nice touch!

The breakfast was lovely and fresh and happy to say they had a proper toaster. Everything was clean and the staff were very helpful and obliging with our requests. If there was a negative comment then I would be nit-picking. It was a very pleasant stay and will most definitely return and would most definitely recommend to others.

Room Tip: Not sure which side of the hotel we were on but we were accommodated in room 3023 - not much of a vi...

On arrival at the hotel we were met with very helpful staff, however a very over powering fragrance in reception was awful. Room very small with very small window, wi-fi hit and miss. Went to eat in restaurant to be told it was fully booked, however no-one was in there. As a resident surely they should leave certain amount of tables for them??

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your kind review of the Bloomsbury St Hotel.

Also, I am sorry that you found our standard rooms small but would like to clarify that all our standard rooms have a minimum of 15 sq mt. spaces - which is the norm for majority of hotels in the London at similar prices. May I please take this opportunity to remind you that we have an extensive collection of Deluxe rooms which offer a minimum space of 25 sq mts. which also includes a drink voucher worth £15 to be redeemed in our bar and other exciting benefits which make it really a lovely treat to book!

To this end, I trust you will reconsider joining us on your next visit to London.

If possible kindly contact me prior to your next visit to London so that I can personally show you our studio suites and King deluxe rooms.

Sincerely,

Hasnain N. Alloo

Great location though the rooms are tiny and the wifi is sketchy at best. Close to the british museum and covent gardens and walking distance to the best of London.

Rooms are like most London hotels - tiny however functional and importantly the wifi is included

Stayed here for three nights for a weekend break. at the end of February. Booked a standard room which we found to be very compact, however it did have the advantage to being on the back of the hotel on the 6th floor & so was very quiet. The bathroom was spacious & the toiletries which were provided were of an excellent quality. It was a little disappointing to be told when we checked out that we should have been offered a room upgrade at check in which we would certainly have accepted. Breakfast each morning was excellent with a good variety of qualty foods on offer. We didn't have dinner in the Steak & Lobster restaurant but did go to Scoff & Banter at the sister hotel over the road on one evening, which again was a very good meal. The situation of the hotel makes it very convenient for the West End & Tottenham Court Road tube station is only a short walk away. We would definitely consider staying here again on future trips to London.

Dear Guest,

It is always reassuring to read such positive comments and thank you for sharing your experience on tripadvisor.

I am glad that your enjoyed Scoff & Banter, which offers a collection of traditional British dishes served straight up or with a twist, Scoff & Banter fills the void that other eateries may leave behind!

Steak & Lobster restaurant, is located downstairs on the ground floor, please join us on your next visit! which offers a fewer options so we can focus on perfecting what we do best: 10oz, dry aged rib eye steaks and fresh whole lobsters served on the half shell. You’ll find Steak & Lobster easy going, fun, modern and stylish!

Thank you once again, look forward to welcoming you back to The Bloomsbury Street Hotel in the near future.

This hotel is a fairly standard Radisson - with friendly staff, good breakfast, nice looking bar and best of all a fantastic location. However as with most of these the rooms are fairly bland looking so don't expect Bloomsbury decor. The room had two faults - an adjoining room door where you could hear next door's TV - and a cold air "heating" system blowing on the bed.Marble floored bathroom looked good (although the bath was wierdly shallow). Views of a corner of Bloomsbury were very nice.Free little water was a nice touch. Wifi was free too.
Conclusion - choose this if you don't mind the chain look and want to guarantee a super location.

Room Tip: ask for a room to the side for less traffic noise (although you may end up looking into the sister h...
