Reviewed 1 October 2013

This hotel is very nicely located about a 10-15 minute walk from the West End Theatre district. As we were on a theatre vacation, we really appreciated this. The room was very nice and the internet worked fine.

I must say that the breakfast experience was VERY disappointing. One day, we had to wait 20 minutes to get a seat for breakfast. The next day, I got the seat immediately, but waited more than 20 minutes for a cup of coffee. In the end, I went out across the street to a cafe and ordered breakfast there. I really don't want to spend my vacation time waiting inordinate amount of time for a cup of coffee (tough to get one cup, nearly impossible to get a refill), a small bowl of cereal (dished out in small measured proportions by the staff) and a croissant or roll.

This is the first time anything like that ever happened to me at a Hotel that is "Bed and Breakfast". The hotel breakfast facilities are simply not set up for the number of people that they book. They serve in a nice restaurant setting, but there are not enough tables for the people who have B&B. The hotel is not cheap at all- one is willing to pay for location so nice when on vacation, but there should be coffee and a reasonable sized breakfast quickly available or simply don't offer B&B and let people go to one of the many reasonably priced cafes in the area.

We had a lovely suite, room 101! for our anniversary. It was a lovely, stylish and comfortable room. A wonderfully quite retreat from the bustle of London. Beautiful room and very helpful professional staff. There is the option of a massage on site!

I was treated to a great massage followed by champagne and cookies - and I thoroughly recommend it! Myhotel Bloomsbury is a fantastic little hideaway in Central London - friendly, professional and relaxed - a home away from home. My massage was excellent and I'll definitely be returning. I felt very well looked after.

I just discovered a jewel in Bloomsbury. The myhotel is just down the road from my office and I discovered it through a deal on a massage. Well, the massage was a perfect end to the day - so relaxing and indulgent. It really set me up for a sporty weekend ahead. The really wonderful surprise was to have warm brownies and a glass of fizz at the end.

The hotel itself seems buzzy and modern and the treatment room is in a funky business office area.

A colleague of my husband also always stays here and we had a joint fan session - apparently the portions in the Gail's bakery restaurant are enormous - perfect to set you up for a day of meetings.

I treated myself to a relaxing massage for my brithday last Saturday and Kristina was fantastic! She made me feel very relaxed and the only down side was that I wished it had been a longer treatment!! I will have to return for more!

Had massage with Kristina at myhotel, best massage and facial cleansing ever! The massage room was warm, comfortable and inviting. You quickly get a sense of privacy as the massage starts and you can relax completely. Kristina was excellent. She checked what I needed at the start to understand why I was there. She then gave me a wonderful massage. Her pressure was strong enough to unknot and stretch out my muscles to the core. But it was not so hard as to hurt at all. She could find the points of tightness quickly and as she worked on the area, also checked for any pain around those points. Overall, I would definatly recommend not just her massage but all her treatments!!
