I was a little apprehensive about my stay at the County hotel after having read some of the reviews on here. 'Grumpy staff' 'Uncomfortable beds' etc. Yeah, right. So why was I greeted with a big smile at reception both on arrival and check-out? I'm sure all the grumpy staff I read about go on leave when I travel! The...

If you're going on a budget break then this hotel is fine. I wouldn't use this hotel for a romantic break or with kids. Hotel is fine, very dated and dusty but beds and toilet facilities are clean and suitable. Fantastic location, ten min walk from Kings Cross and two mins from . Euston We walked to Camden in about...

The bed is comfy and the showers and toilets were clean (the shower had some mould on the roof, but rest of it was clean). one toilet and two showers for every six rooms...

You know what, I think if you want a cheap great location hostel/hotel this is for you. If you want something renovated with en suites and such its not going to be cheap. I don't understand these reviews, life is very simple you pay for what you get. I enjoyed my stay here it is old but it has something...

If you're looking for a place to put your luggage and go for a sleep you 've found the place. Near to Euston station but also possible to walk down to piccadily circus passing various souvenir shops and restaurants. Don't expect perfect cleanliness for this low price room. Also the shared baths and toilets could be worse! And don't be...

This hotel was booked for us by a friend. I was horrified by some of the reviews and we almost tried to change the booking. Pros:- Superb location close to Euston and St Pancras. Easy to get anywhere on the tube. Rooms were clean and beds very comfortable. Staff were generally friendly and helpful. Breakfast staff less so. Free wifi...

I stayed here with family for one night as we had an evening trip to the West End booked, and it’s always stayed with me as the worst hotel I have EVER stayed in. Hotel flatters it, it felt more like a youth hostel and a bad one at that! The service was terrible and the receptionist was rude and...

Very poor (terrible) hotel. Everything is very old and not clean. Breakfast could be acceptable for the food but even the carafe with orange juice didn't look so clean or at least very old. Before going there I wrote an email to ask if there was internet connection in the rooms and they answered that free wifi was available in...

First off, the hotel has a great location only two minutes walk from Euston station. If you're stay in London is solely based on location and price, this hotel is perfect. We checked in and were given the keys to our rooms. Neither of which were ready when we went up to them. Usually you would be told this upon...

The hotel has a good location.It is very close to London University and British Museum. The Oxford Street and Soho are also within walking distance. For London it is one of the cheaper options. There are shared bathrooms, but very clean. The single room was small and I didn't like very soft mattress. But for a few nights ok.

Neighbourhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Offering exceptional value in an excellent central location, the County Hotel is the perfect place to relax after a busy day exploring the city. A short walk from three mainline stations, it's also halfway between world-renowned Oxford Street shopping and the food, fashion and festival atmosphere of Camden Market. Small and friendly, it's become the essential central London choice for sightseers and shoppers on a budget. All 175 rooms have wash-basins and bathrooms are shared between four rooms. But there's more to the County than resting your head - be sure to begin your London experience with our complimentary English breakfast. It's hearty enough to fuel even the most action-packed stay in the capital. ... more   less
