Really nice hotel in a perfect location. Close enough to walk to everything, but on a quiet street where it is easy to sleep. The staff is among the friendliest, most helpful, hotel staffs that I've ever come across. The walls must be thick because even though the hotel was full, and I know the rooms next to me were...

The Bloomsbury exceeded my expectations for my first trip to London. Every staff member we encountered was so helpful with recommendations for places to visit or eat. Any time we needed assistance we were promptly taken care of and made to feel at home. I have no complaints about the hotel and hope to visit again in the future.
