We booked the Bloomsbury when visiting London for a friend's birthday and were very impressed by both it's splendour (to us provincials it seemed VERY swanky) and its warm welcome. Literally a stone's throw from Tottenham Court Road at one end of the street and the British Museum at the other, if you are doing touristy London it's very happily situated. We arrived on a sunny Saturday afternoon in March having nabbed a bargain deal on the internet so were very pleasantly surprised to find a quality hotel with unerringly polite and helpful door and desk staff. We were on a budget so didn't check out the cocktail bar (although the voucher for a free cocktail was a nice touch) and headed up to our room - closely followed by the doorman with our bags. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We were located up on the sixth floor in a compact but well-appointed room. Tasteful decoration, lovely modern bathroom, and the usual TV, tea and coffee making facilities as well as a nice view of the Centre Point Tower (no, really - we thought it was cool) meant we were happy bunnies. We slept in a very comfortable bed and despite the hotel being busy, weren't disturbed at all by other guests coming and going. We didn't stop for breakfast as we'd spied an attractive looking diner opposite and headed there (VQ - also recommended) but having stayed once I would most definitely choose this hotel again - it's not often that you experience such a quality hotel in this price range in the capital, and this one is well worth a return visit.
