I couldn't say too many good things about this hotels. Remark you that there isn't bathrooms in the rooms all are outside (I didn't see it anywhere before arriving). The bedroom was normal but very old, also the mattress was old and Uncomfortable, if we slept it's because we were exhausted of being walking in London. All decoration seems to...

After getting the train to London from Scotland, I went straight out to dinner with old friends, and so I knew I was going to be late arriving. I rang up to explain that I'd be late checking in, and at that time there was no problem. However, when I did check in at about half eleven, the reception staff...

Our room lacked cosy atmosphere (strip lighting and 70s decor) but the price was very cheap and included a cooked breakfast. Everything is clean and tidy and staff are helpful and friendly, but the whole place is a bit tatty and austere. We suffered from other guests banging the rattly bathroom doors during the night on the Saturday night but...

My partner and I stayed here for 6 nights over December/January. The overall experience was average. I think this hotels best asset is its location and close proximity to 2 tube stations. Our room was clean and comfortable and the central heating good. The view from our window was onto the street. We had a shared bathroom and this was...

Not sure haw many times we have stayed in the county. For where it's located and the price I'm pretty sure can't find a better deal. Never had a problem with the rooms , buffet breakfast is always good. Look forward to our next visit.

Absolutely loved this place, 8o's decor. Shared bathrooms and toilets. (With plenty of towels and surprisingly clean) Absolute bargain for the location. The rooms have not been updated since the 80's (so you may have a little bit of peeling paper or a room that needs a lick of paint) but you pay for what you get.. it is however...

Neighbourhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Offering exceptional value in an excellent central location, the County Hotel is the perfect place to relax after a busy day exploring the city. A short walk from three mainline stations, it's also halfway between world-renowned Oxford Street shopping and the food, fashion and festival atmosphere of Camden Market. Small and friendly, it's become the essential central London choice for sightseers and shoppers on a budget. All 175 rooms have wash-basins and bathrooms are shared between four rooms. But there's more to the County than resting your head - be sure to begin your London experience with our complimentary English breakfast. It's hearty enough to fuel even the most action-packed stay in the capital. ... more   less
