I stayed in room 4 at the front-a twin room. Beds clean and comfortable. Made to feel very welcome. Fantastic location as I walked to British Museum and West End and from Kings Cross. Enjoyed my stay.Thank You.

I stayed at Pickwick Hall for one night and would definitely stay there again. It was easy to get to in a quiet neighborhood. I felt very safe. My room was comfortable and the toilet and shower were close by. The breakfast was very nice and just right for me.

A really fab location - we walked 15 mins to see two musicals nearby during our trip. You're a stones throw from Oxford St and the British Museum. The rooms are basic but clean, comfortable and large. Towels are provided and we used the shared bathrooms and they were fine. Breakfast is also included - cereal, toast and tea which... More

This place is such a bargain. For a private room, mere steps away from the British Museum you can't find a better price. This is very much a hostel not a hotel, but if you just want somewhere clean and comfortable to put your head down and save your money for everything else in London, then it's perfect. I stay...

Three of us stayed 4 nights at Pickwick Hall during the London leg of our European trip. Check in was hassle-free, receiving our keys and being ushered into our rooms immediately, giving us plenty of time to get out and explore the city. The building is quite old, built in early 1800 as shown by the twin maps of the... More

We stayed in Pickwick Hall recently when we traveled to London for the Harry Potter play in the West End. Having spent a lot of money on the play tickets and flights our hotel budget was fairly small so we booked Pickwick Hall on the recommendation of a friend who had stayed there previously. We had a double room with... More

Ridiculously cheap for a central, safe, attractive location in Bloomsbury, near the British Museum. Extremely basic, with a shared bath, but for the price paid, it was a clean, uncrowded, quiet place. But, what more do you need when London is at your doorstep?! Very close to two tube stations: Holburn and Russel Square and only one stop from St.... More

It was a pretty average place. Quite cheap but you get what you pay for. Beds were absolutely terrible with springs in them that I just felt all up my back. The showers weren't very good as well. There were two showers on my level that were both broken partly and annoying to use. Beside the annoying bathrooms and bed,... More
