The Arosfa is an excellent choice for affordable accommodation in central London. Located a few minutes' walk from Oxford street, you are within walking distance to most central-London attractions (Picadilly circus and Leicester sq. are about 15-20 minutes walk), and with the nearest tube station (Goodge street) only 2 minutes away, transportation is very easy to anywhere in London.
Breakfast is another highlight of this hotel. Well above the standard 'english breakfast', you can choose from the buffet which has a large variety of cereal, fresh fruit, cheese, ham, spreads and yogurt, pastries, juices and more, all of which come on top of the cooked breakfast made to order.
Above all, the hosts at this small hotel are amazing. Both Tessa and Atilla are extremely nice, welcoming and helpful, and made us feel at home.
Indeed, the Arosfa has one drawback you should be aware of - some of the rooms are small, and the bathrooms in the smaller rooms are tiny (imagine a toilet, a sink and a shower all within 1 square meter - quite claustrophobic, though much more manageable than I feared it would be). However, they do have larger rooms if you book early enough, and the smaller rooms are priced accordingly with rates that are unbeatable in central London for any comparable hotel. So just book early enough and know in advance what room you'll be getting to avoid disappointment. I certainly recommend this hotel and will be back here for any future London visit.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Arosfa Hotel is a refurbished 200-year old Georgian Town House in the heart of historic Bloomsbury district, the former home of the famous Pre-Raphaelite artist Sir John Everett Millais. The cool white garden squares and wide streets of Bloomsbury have been a pull to thinkers for centuries, and it sometimes seems like every second house has a blue plaque denoting that a great writer, scientist or philosopher once inhabited the building. It was in Bloomsbury that Karl Marx created communism, Virginia Woolf defined the twentieth century British novel, and Charles Darwin first conceived the theory of natural selection. The imposing bulk of the British Museum, home to seven millennia of human art and artefacts, dominates the area, and there are plenty of other academic institutions including Birkbeck College, the beautiful University of London Library, and RADA, London's grandest drama school. ... more less
