    Superb

    A very attractive historical exterior to The Bloomsbury is matched by an interior which balances original features like the stained glass with a single bedroom which although small had all the facilities necessary for comfort. Its location is conveniently near, for example, Euston Station, the British Museum and numerous theatres. The breakfast was well organised, served by efficient and friendly staff and was very tasty.

    My only complaint that my bedroom was not ready for entry for some time after my afternoon arrival.

    Fabulous

    rooms were clean and tidy, fresh towels, friendly staff

    Noisy street noise and although room was ok and clean, the corridors and lift area were very shabby. Didn't eat or drink there, wasn't a very good atmosphere, kinda empty. also Booked.net gave a price in euros of €443 and the hotel cost €469, not happy about that.

    Too noisy, traffic on one side and walking street with pub outside window. Windows very old and not tight, cold wind coming in room. Paper coming of the wall, ugly colors. There were no heating in a cold bathroom but the shower was the best about the stay

    Clean rooms. LCD Flat-screen TV with alot of channels. Tea/Coffee making facilities, hairdryer, ironing board and iron all available in the rooms.

    Rooms a bit small. Lift slow. Rang reception for milk for tea, it never arrived. Rang again and no-one picked up.

    Fabulous

    Whilst the hotel itself was excellent, great location, fabulous rooms bs frueny staff we feel very let down by Booked.net We booked the hotel over 4 months before travel, were told it was payable at point of booking, and inputted our bank details into the website. We were then e mailed to see it was booked and transaction complete. We then arrived and were told no payment had been taken and asked to pay the full price. Very unexpected and more concerning to us, where had our card details gone? Booked.net tells us they pass them to the hotel and its upto them to charge when they choose? Will go back to the hotel but not use Booked.net again

    Superb

    The staff were superb especially the manager. Our booking by Booked.net had not been sent to the hotel even though we had a conformation letter. The hotel was full but fortunately the hotel had a room for us and we were saved, they also honored the savings price we had booked at. We feel very unsure of Booked.net now and will ring the hotel in future before we go. The food was very good and the beds comfortable. It was very near all that London has to offer and we will definitely be staying there again.

    The bar drinks were VERY expensive.

    Superb

    Great location, within walking distance (15 mins) of Covent Garden, Soho and Theatreland. Bus stops close by and just a short walk to Holborn Tube Station and connections around the city. Good breakfast - lots of choice and everything nicely cooked. Comfortable beds and very clean. Standards of cleanliness and decoration around the hotel were very good.

    Our room, number 215, was a little small.

    Fire alarm going off at 5:30 am, had to call reception twice to get an answer, was told there was no fire but a fault in the system "It happens sometimes".

    Friendly staff. Very good breakfast. Value for money.

    Unfortunatly the new lift was out of order. We had a 2nd floor room, so not so bad.
