What a great hotel. Location is perfect, the design very inspiring and a great choice of restaurants and a great bar, Fitz's. Love the flair and atmosphere of the hotel which is elegantly casual and relaxed grandeur. Am sure will be back soon.

Description
Kimpton Fitzroy London is a Grade II* listed landmark building that occupies the eastern flank of Russell Square in Bloomsbury. The re-opening of the 334-room hotel has restored the original grande dame to her More original glory while administering a shot of adrenaline to the heart of London’s most literary neighbourhood. The hotel is steeped in history, the Frederick Hotels Company having first opened its doors in 1898 Lavishly appointed and boasting a striking terracotta exterior – with four British Queens guarding the entrance. Kimpton Fitzroy London hopes to create a hub not only for its guests but also for Londoners who have a passion for great food, fabulous cocktails and memorable nights in the city. Less

There was a fridge but no mini bar. The hotel provides a “tuckbox” with cookies, candy, etc - all free.
