“A Very Good Choice”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

Just checked out of the Bloomsbury Park and found the whole experience of our two night stay excellent. The rooms are very clean, modern and well equipped. The reception staff are very pleasant. The hotel is ideally located to the Russell square tube station for airport transfers and the hotel is only a short walk to Covent Garden and all other attractions. We would highly recommend this hotel and would most defiantly stay again. The only very very very small negative is the floor in room 104 made a lot of squeaking when walked on. Over all a great city centre hotel.

We stayed in this hotel for a theatre break, and it's perfect. Good location, very friendly, helpful staff and an excellent breakfast. Quiet, comfortable room with all requirements. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Always find booking hotels in London a nightmare but this place was a gem. 10 minute walk from theatre land, lovely staff and great food. The room was small but our one at the back was very quiet and clean. Beds were also comfy. Would highly recommend.

This hotel is on Southampton Row, right between the Holborn and Russell Square tube stations, a short ride to anywhere in London, and quite a short walk to the British Museum. The room was small but comfortable, though there was no tub in the bathroom. Very reasonably-priced overall, including the restaurant.

We stayed there for 3 nights this week while my daughter was in the nearby hospital. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. The room was cleaned every day, including clean towels. The food was excellent without being too rich. The hotel is perfectly placed for Covent Garden and Oxford Street as well as the Theatres. We will definitely stay at the Bloomsbury Park again.

As a location for all the attractions of London such as covent garden, Leicester square, Piccadilly, the Bloomsbury park hotel on Southampton row is excellent. We stayed for one night, the hotel was very nice, clean and tidy, room ample for our needs, very quiet at the back of the hotel, staff very friendly. Hotel very easy to find from kings cross and easy access through safe streets to the main attractions. Would recommend the hotel to anyone as a great location, would happily stay again. Overall, very good.

The thistle Bloomsbury park is a lovely, warm and friendly hotel to stay in. Its location is perfect for access to public transport to such locations as Leicester square, piccadily circus etc. I would personally like to thank on behalf of me and my girlfriend Managing supervisor Arif and his friendly and hard-working staff for their great service during our stay. The room was comfortable and well kept cleanliness wise. Finally I would like to say the food was exceptional in the restaurant both for breakfast and dinner, certainly value for money price-wise. Will certainly come back and stay and would recommend to anybody.
