This hotel is in a lovely, convenient location on a crescent in historic Bloomsbury. The staff was friendly, and the cooked breakfast was well well prepared. My room was a decent size and quiet for London with a pleasant view of Cartwright Gardens. Free wifi was a bonus. I had to share a bathroom which was OK because I never...

George Hotel is value for its prices. It is superly located around the Cartwright Garden, in Bloombury, London. it is is only a 10 minute-walk to King's Cross Station and Russel Square as well. From Kind's Cross Station, you can take train to Edinburgh. From Russel Square, you can take the metro line - Piccadilly Line to the downtown center...

I found the staff at the George to be very friendly and hard working. Sure there are somethings about the George that are less than perfect, but we're talking about a building that is 200 years old, built before they had even invented electricity or indoor plumbing. As a grade 2 listed building the owners are not allowed to alter...

This hotel is absolutely appalling. In years of travelling the globe I have never seen such a small room - it was basically a bed with a wardrobe at the foot. The floor of the room sloped to the right at a steep angle, and all the items in the room were old and worn. All electrical wires were run...

janoz11, Owner at The George Hotel, responded to this review

This guest arrived early and was given a key to the room before it was fully serviced to move his luggage in. The staff should have knocked on the door but were under the reasonable impression that the room was still empty as they had been working in it shortly before and it was still 2 hours before normal checkin....

So I came back after 10 months and my opinion didn´t change: this is the best value for money in London. I had a room on the ground floor (reception level) and I was worried about the noise: surprise I DIDN´T HAVE any problems with noise. The ensuite bathroom can be small yes...if that bugs you you can use the...

Well run, with caring people, the George became a home away from home for me. Highly recommended for anyone who doesn't need luxury but who does need comfort, cleanliness and a friendly environment. I miss the English breakfasts!
