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,... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

We stayed for one night at the beginning of March 2012 and found the staff very welcoming and helpful. The hotel is in a very convenient location next to Russell Square and just a minute's walk to Russell Square Tube station. In fact, we walked to the hotel from St Pancras (20 minutes). There are many pubs and restaurants nearby,... More

I've been staying with the Marazzi's on every stay in London for the past 12 years. The hotel is very clean, is located in possibly the best location in central London (safe/quite/literally 60 seconds from the Piccadilly Line tube at Russell Square). The staff are very very helpful and its probably the best buy in London. I can stay here... More

Wow what a wonderful find in the middle of London. The staff were so lovely and couldn't be more helpful.

We were here in the fall and I thought I'd share our experience. The hotel is just around the corner from the Russell Square tube stop--perfect for getting into town quickly. The reception was friendly and extremely helpful in providing maps, directions and tips for things to do. The room was airy (we were on the back of the building)... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
