Welcome Home

I returned to Mercure Bloomsbury because the staff is outstanding, truly making the guest feel welcomed and valued. This was my third stay with this small, cozy, and friendly hotel in the very heart of one of the most amazing and most interesting cities, literally, in the world.

As I step off one of the busiest streets in the city and enter the lobby, the front office team of professionals, Ekram, Dario, Gilbert, Begonia, Carlos and their colleagues make me feel that they've been waiting for me to return with their warm welcomes and smiles. The warm-heaarted ambience of the Mercure Bloomsbury extends to the breakfast room staff and to the wonderful housekeeping team. I love returning to this delightful hotel with the incredible British Museum and British Library just a few minutes walk away, and with the great convenience of the Russell Square Tube Station practically right around the corner. One gets full value for their investment as a guest at this lovely Home Away from Home.

Mercure London Bloomsbury

My Husband and I stayed here for 1 night (a Saturday) in July 2019.

Our room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very small - the toilet and the shower were super close to each other.

The breakfast had a good (but not extensive) selection, and was adequate for the price we had payed for our stay.

All the staff we came into contact with were friendly and polite. We arrived before the official check in time and the reception made it possible for us to check into our room early, which we really appreciated as this meant we could head straight out for the day.

If we were able to pay a similar price to the price we paid in July, we would stay here again when visiting London.

Mostly OK

My stay at the Mercure Bloomsbury was mostly OK. The hotel was quiet, the room was adequate, the bed comfortable. The location is good and the price was fair. The front desk staff was a bit of a problem in that they twice failed to call my room when friends attempted to let me know they were in the lobby waiting for me. On my departure the woman at the front desk tried to tell me I would have a problem getting a taxi at 8.30 AM on a Friday morning -- attempting to convince me to use a private car with whom there must have been some arrangement. There was obviously no problem getting a taxi. I had a CONFIRMED reservation for lunch at the hotel restaurant one day only to find they did not serve lunch that day. The control for heating and cooling is a remote (like a TV remote) that did not work. Even after it was replaced it never quite did what I expected (or maybe I am too dense to understand how to use it). Perhaps an instruction sheet for guests might be useful.
