Second stay at this great little budget hotel. Yes, it's basic, shared bathrooms and no frills. However spotlessly clean room with comfortable bed, adequate limitless buffet breakfast and only £52 a night. The low cost makes your money go so much further during your stay in London. The County Hotel will be my first choice next time in London. To...

We stay in the Euston/King Cross area at least once a month for early Eurostar starts the next day. We're typically budget travelers, wouldn't spend above £100 usually on a room. The County is horrible. It's a large hotel and the reception doesn't look too bad. The staff were alright, though they couldn't check me in without a paper printout...

Over the past few years I have stayed here on several occasions for both Business and Leisure reasons. While it may not have the best facilities in the world, and the decor is definitely dated, if you are looking for somewhere conveniently located, well priced & comfortable then you can't go far wrong with the County. Receptionists are always friendly...

This hotel is very central to all the attractions, both by being very close to two tube stations, and having bus stops right outside. The room was exceptionally clean, although a bit strange. It was a twin room, but the beds were totally separate, so could easily have been shared by friends as one bed was around the corner from...

Me and my boy friend from Italy stayed in this ''hotel'' in September 2013 for our birthdays (we were born the same day) The price is really cheap so we could not really ask for high level standards but still, reception staff was absolutely not aware of anything about the hotel, ignorant and did not care at all. We asked...

If you are after a luxury hotel, look elsewhere. I paid £95 for three nights with full breakfast and it was great value. Refurbishment seems to be complete so no builders hanging around. Rooms are basic but very clean. The shared bathrooms are kept clean. The breakfast was plentiful and perfectly adequate. Staff at reception and porter's desk were friendly...

We stayed here for one night. I booked a twin room for my friend and I. It is an old building and it has not been refurbished, but it is really confortable. The only thing I did not like about this hotel was the welcome. The blonde receptionist didn't give me any information about the room or the hotel facilities,...

If you're looking for a cheap hotel in a convenient location, this would be a good choice. However, be aware that you get what you pay for! The hotel interior does seem a bit dated as does the rooms. The beds were comfortable and clean and there was a TV (I never used it though), wardrobe, dressing table and a...

Staying in Bloomsbury

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
