I booked this hotel for a treat for my partner's birthday. We were both delighted with the experience. The staff were welcoming, and the room and facilities all as expected in a four star hotel. The staff in the Landseer restaurant were all extremely pleasant, Matthew in the terrace bar was particularly helpful and attentive. Can not fault the food...

Very disappointed in this hotel. Here's why: - Nobody was there to help us carry our luggage up the stairs. - Some of the toiletries in the bathroom were half-full. - There was a mouse in the Landseer bar. It ran from the bar to our banquette. When we alerted the bartender, he did not seem unduly concerned. - Room...

I chose it for the third time around for a pre-Xmas trip to London. The vicinity of the British Museum was a major pro, along with the 2 minute walking distance from the revamped Tottenham Court Underground Station. Some friends of mine were arriving very late at night, with no reservation, and the wonderfully kind and helpful staff managed to...

We arrived at The Bloomsbury Hotel London. We were met by the Concierge, who immediately took our luggage. We were very early, but we're checked in within 5 minutes.

This is my second time staying at the Bloomsbury hotel. Love it there and will now make it my go to for when I'm in London! The staff are so wonderful and helpful. The building is beautiful. It's so centrally located, which makes it very easily to see all the sites. I highly recommend it.

Service was excellent from the moment I walked up the front steps, where I was greeted by the helpful and welcoming concierge, to those assisting me at check-in and waiting staff. The recently opened Dalloway Terrace is delightful and the staff really do go out of their way to build rapport and make your stay a 5* and memorable experience....

I recently got together a group of friends to celebrate an engagement and chose the Bloomsbury mainly due to location. We found that the service was outstanding, the staff being very impressive, and the quality of food and drink (especially good cocktails) was first rate. Will definitely go back and have already recommended to some friends. JK

we picked the hotel because of its central location as we enjoy the ability to just walk around and reach places without having to wait for the bus or the underground, and it worked out well. It is very close to the British Museum, Trafalgar Square, and the various theaters and Covent Garden. Even shopping is close by. Our room...
