  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Excellent location with very welcoming and efficient staff. The breakfast was very good.

    Bedrooms on the small side and rather dated, fine for an overnight stay but maybe not for longer.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Great location, reasonably priced rooms. Firm bed that was very comfortable. Room looked very clean. Staff very friendly and helpful.

    Room quite small, but had all the usuals (incl satellite tv) - ok for 1-2 nights not for a week's stay. En suite had shower but no bath.

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    The hotel is in an excellent location.Size of bathroom.

    No air conditioning which made the rooms very hot. I thought the breakfast was over priced. Very little tea/coffee in the room. Did not like having to ask for a bathmat at reception. (The mat was definitely needed as the shower curtain fell outside of the shower!)

  • Single
    5.0

    Location

    The photo of the room and the reality of the room were somewhat different. you couldn't swing a cat round in the room it was so small. I'm so glad I didn't choose this hotel for a weekend in London with my wife, we would have been very dissappointed!

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    leaving.......

    The doors are not wide enough for wheelchairs to go through, staff told me 'they do not cater for disabled people there' but accepted my booking which stated I was disabled, rooms are extremely small, bathrooms tiny, outlook onto a filthy disused church wall,12 feets away, dismal. This hotel is very close to Great Ormond Street hospital and The National neuro hospital (where I was visiting the nxt day)

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    All the staff we met were very pleasent and helpful. The breackfasts were excellent. Our double room was quite compact, but well fitted out, very clean and comfortable.

    Plenty of hangers in the wardrobe, but nowhere to hang wet outer clothes

  • Family with children
    8.8

    Very quiet room as requested, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed. Friendly receptionist. Great location.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Room, although compact was spotlessly clean and very comfortable beds. Good breakfast

    Like all hotels supply the crappiest teabages on earth - and very stibgy with the milk and sugar!

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Check in was easy and efortless. friendly receptionnever actually saw and other members of staff their during whole stay

    Anyone can enter the hotel and access the are where all the rooms are. should my 21 year old daughter and friends ever book the hotel I would be concerned about this. their does not appear to be any security at all. we wondered in to have a look before actually going to reception ?? no staff in the bar and restaurant area at all.

  • Couple
    7.8

    The location was excellent - a huge amount of attracttions can be accessed on foot. Close (10 - 15 mins walk) to lots of good restaurants and bars in Soho, Fitzrovia, Leicester Sq etc.

    Other than the over-priced breakfast which seems to be a feature of most chain hotels (the Starbucks next door was doing well each morning!) the only complaint was the old single-glazed windows in a room at the back of the hotel - noise wasn't an issue but in cold weather it meant the radiator was on full blast 24 hours a day especially as the en suite didn't have its own heater! In fairness though this isn't going to be a problem most days of the year in London just when the wind comes in from Siberia!

  • Family with children
    6.6

    Everything worked smoothly. No problem whatsoever. Breakfast was ok.

    As always in London. It feels like the people next door are in the same room. No voice isolation at all. The hotel was also under construction. Terrible smell in the hallway from paint.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    The location was pretty good. The staff were helpful.

    The wall next to my bed was damp with the wall paper peeling off. The bathroom was freezing!!

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    The Bloomsbury Park was very close to Covent Garden and surrounding area.

    I thought the breakfast was to expensive, but other than that I was very pleased with the accommodation

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The bed was very comfortable and spacious.

    The radiator in the bedroom was very noisy but we didn't realise it was the radiator until the following morning.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    fairly large room for the price, rather quiet in spite of being on a main street, nice bathroom with a view

    breakfast not included, but there are several places nearby where an adequate and inexpensive breakfast can be had. The single elevator is very small for a hotel of this size and the long waits mean that there are frustrating stops at nearly every floor, where the person who called the elevator has left meanwhile.
