I stayed here with my friend over a weekend. We had a lovely room. It was well equipped, ac, bathrobes/slippers, comfortable bed and great bathroom. The check in staff and concierge were very helpful, and spoken good English. The breakfast was included in our rate, and there was a good selection of choice including gluten free and vegetarian options. Although we had quite a wait for breakfast to arrive once we ordered.
The location is near to Oxford Street, and the bars and restaurants of Covent Garden & Soho.
Lovely hotel

This was our second time to visit the Bloomsbury and we had no hesitation in booking when we decided to return to this area in London. The staff were both friendly and courteous at all times from the moment we arrived until our checkout,The standard room was a reasonable size and spotlessly clean. At night the room was silent and led to a good nights sleep. Breakfast was cooked fresh and there was an excellent choice at the buffet. We really enjoyed our stay here and I would recommend this highly.

Our recent 7 day stay at the Bloomsbury was our second visit in two years. In addition to the great location, outstanding breakfast and comfortable room, the customer service provided by the entire staff exceeded our already high expectations from our previous visit! A special shout out to Kashif and Abdul at the front door; Maria, Estelita, and Chris in the dining room and Joel in the lounge! The Bloomsbury is a quality place with quality people. We enthusiastically recommend this hotel!

We chose the Bloomsbury for an overnight stay whilst visiting a theatre in the West End to celebrate a special occasion. The hotel is located a short walk from the heart of Theatre Land which was one of the main reasons for selecting the hotel, however the hotels attention to detail in guest comfort and kind gesture helping us to celebrate a special occasion, incredibly comfortable room & bed is reason I would recommend the Bloomsbury Hotel to anyone considering staying in that part of town. The Hotel was clean and quiet, even at the weekend on the heart of London, and we would definitely stay again.

An excellent hotel right in the thick of the action. Walking distance to most attractions but quiet in the rooms. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and quality is the theme through this gem.
The continental breakfast was by far the best we have come across with a wide variety of cold meats, cheeses, boiled eggs, pastries etc. etc
If you want a quality hotel in a great position this is the one to choose.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms are top class.

Stayed in June to celebrate our wedding anniversary. From the warm welcome of doorman Kashif to the attentive reception team, it was a real pleasure.
We arrived the day of a London taxi strike (it was about 26 C) and we were hot and bothered - reception gave us hot hand towels and ice cold fresh lemonade to cool off while we checked in; lovely!
It's a great central location for shopping & theatre and only a very short walk from the British Museum. Our room was small but perfect for our stay and the Resident's bar was cool, comfortable and intimate. Had a wonderful stay and look forward to going back!
