We stayed near by at another hotel, and as friends were staying at the mercury we decided to join them for breakfast, and what a good decision that was, the breakfast was very reasonably priced of good quality and a very good choice, if you are ever bear by and in need of a morning feast make this your first choice

Stayed: November 2013, travelled with friends

Stayed at the hotel ( Friday 1st Nov for one night ) I had been looking for a hotel that was modern and would meet my wife' expectations and also meet my budget! ( not easy I can tell you!!) Anyway found the Mercure and what a surprise.
I had send a few emails before hand to the guest relations coordinator as I wanted a surprise cake and drinks in the room on arrival... we exchanged what was required etc.. and I waited for the day to arrive.... Myself and my young daughter excited to see if our plan would come together... we arrived as planned and after check in went to the room to find all in place ( what magic! ) to find the cake glasses chilled drinks.. Room clean tidy and beds very comfy.. I had also planned a theatre visit and with the holtel being only a 10 min + walk to the Treatre Royal the stay was just how we wanted it.... If your looking for nice frendly staff and clean hotel close to treatre land this is for you.... not a hotel for views from your windows but depends what you are after, I can only say it meet all my expectations and more..........

Room Tip: Family rooms are great and clean and tidy and modern

My wife took me to the hotel for my birthday at the start of November, it was a deal off Amazon which included evening meal and breakfast. The reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful and we were allowed to leave our case in their luggage area as we were early and our room wasn't ready.

When we returned after seeing a show our room cards were waiting and our case was quickly given to us. The room was well appointed and clean with tea and coffee making facilities, though I couldn't find a shaver socket. We chose our evening meal off the main menu though my avocado cheese and tomato salad didn't have any avocado on it, both our steaks came medium rare though my wife asked for medium well. Other than this the meals were ok.

We travel extensively throughout Europe and Africa (and further afield) the Mercure holds up well against other city break hotels and is well placed for Covent Garden and theatre district. We enjoyed our stay and would return.

Stayed in this hotel for one night for business. A pleasant if somewhat small room, comfy beds, good air conditioning and an excellent bathroom. Breakfast was good but a expensive. Also would have appreciated more tea/coffee sachets in the room. VAT invoice provided with no problem. Would return, but would not bother with the breakfast at the price.

Stayed: September 2013, travelled on business

Wonderful food, the creme brulee was the best we've tasted outside France. The staff were excellent and allowed us to take as much time as we wanted which was just what we wanted on this occasion. I would certainly recommend the Mercure Bloomsbury as a good place to take Afternoon Tea in central London.

Requested a quiet room on arrival and our room was changed on check in to one on a higher floor facing the alley rather than the main road. However this standard double room and bed was too small for us. Upgraded to larger room at a cost of £30. Disappointed was not contacted after emailing the previous day to check we were in a quiet room and had a king size bed. However did appreciate the bottle of fizz and card as celebrating my husbands birthday. Breakfast was good although service was a little slow at first.

Room Tip: Higher and facing alley are quiestest.
