On our first visit to London in 1985, my husband and I had stayed at St. Margaret's Hotel, and the hospitality of this family-run place was memorable. I learned a few years ago that after losing their lease in Bedford Place, the family had decamped to this lesser property on Guilford Street and begun renovating and raising its quality to...

When we travel as a family, we need 3 sleeping surfaces (two teens of opposite genders, and two grownups). It's usually quite difficult to find a hotel that can accommodate this without either paying for a giant suite or two adjoining rooms. I was happy to find the Celtic and their family room, for a very affordable price for the...

We had stayed some years ago at St. Margaret's Hotel nearby, the previous one run by the owners of the Celtic Hotel. This time we opted for a room with ensuite bath, which was carved out in the corner of what was once an elegant room (perhaps a parlor?) in this row house. Like a number of other hotels in...

Stayed at the Celtic Hotel - very good location - just around the corner from the Russel Square Tube stop. Very close to the British Museum and the British library. The room was clean and we opted to have our own shower and bathroom rather than share. Just a bit more expensive but well worth it for us. Need to...

By American standards 100 pounds or $160 a night the price is outrageous By British standards the price appeared to be quite normal, even inexpensive for Central London. The room was small, the en suite bathroom was tiny. My husband complained that he could not sit on the toilet without his knees hitting the wall. However, this appears to be...

Really a perfect location to get to from the airport, close to a convenient subway stop. Restaurants around, nice area to walk in, not expensive. I got a room with no WC or shower, but the WC was very convenient and the showers nice and clean. The people were nice and helpful. I needed to get online and sort out...

We loved our stay at the Celtic. Of course the location is fantastic as so many have said before. Let me add, though, that this is the easiest transfer ever for tired international travelers. From Heathrow, we slogged onto the tube (the less expensive non-express train) and arrived at Russell Square with no fuss or hassles. Out of the station,...

Bloomsbury is an expensive area to lodge in, but we enjoyed the convenient location on fairly quiet Guilford St. just a block from the Russell Square Underground station. The room was clean and comfortable, and the window could be opened. It contained a wash basin and a shower, but the shared toilet was in the hall above. The cost was...

We needed a room for 1 night before flying home out of Heathrow. I wanted to be within walking distance of the British Museum so the Celtic Hotel worked well for us. It is an older hotel without an elevator and was filled with a very pleasant group of college students from the States. The price is right. Very generous...

We spent 5 nights at the Celtic, and were very pleased. The breakfast was cooked to order, there was enough variety to change off every day. Of course the rooms are simply furnished, but everything was as clean as can be. The staff couldn't be nicer. A pleasant 3 minute walk to the Russell Square tube, maybe a 10 minute...
