The hotel is in a back street row of Georgian terrace houses, much of which has been converted to hotels. The building was built in the 18th century so has lots of history to it. The price and location are hard to beat, but it’s a pretty basic lodgings, so don’t expect a 5 star hotel. They serve a quite...

The location of the Thanet hotel was perfectly situated in the Bloomsbury district of London close to my course venue. Excellent value, will come again :-))

This hotel is - by London standards - good value for money. The room was clean and tidy, lovely crisp white sheets, and a gleaming, good sized bathroom. My room was on the ground/basement level but had good bars on the window and good soundproofing so it was ok. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

My wife and I just got back (June, 2012) from a 6 day stay at the Thanet hotel, room #17 down in THE BASEMENT. We had booked the Thanet more than six weeks in advance and that was where they put us despite my objections. To be fair there was a half window at street level (which we kept closed...

For price vs. location and overall value in London, the Thanet is a decent choice for budget-minded travelers. I have stayed at this hotel a number of times. On the most recent trip I had a top-floor single. For one or two nights, would be ok, but for the week I was there, was really too small and I should...

The Thanet is an excellent value and location for staying in London. The hotel is very convenient (3 blocks) to 2 tubes stops, one which has multiple lines. It made it very easy to get around to other parts of the city, and not worry about walking very far at night back to the hotel. There are shops and restaurants...

We thought this was a pretty good B&B for our needs. Location was great around the corner from The British Museum, with easy walking to Oxford st/Soho area and Neal's yard/Covent Gardens area. Good tube access from russell square and holborn. The staff were excellent, nothing was a problem. An extra towel was found immediately and my sister, staying at...

My family and I stayed at the Thanet the first week of April, 2012. Our room was clean, and spacious (for London). The location was in a quiet neighborhood two blocks from the British Museum. We recommend the Thanet, and would stay there again.

I only visit London for an overnight once a year but now flatly refuse to pay what I deem to be any exhorbitant price for a three or four star hotel around the Bloomsbury area. It certainly ticks the boxes for the definition of a hotel in my dictionary.As others have said this is perfectly adequate, close to a lot...
