What To Know

  • The Landseer British Kitchen is on the lower ground floor, but if the weather’s nice ask to dine on the private outdoor terrace
  • The air conditioning is ferocious and turned on by default; if you don’t like it, ask for it to be turned off before you arrive (our room was like an icebox for the first 20 minutes)
  • There’s an impressive on-site gym and massage facility, but no pool or spa
  • Some Superior and Deluxe Rooms have 2 ziplock single mattresses as kingsize beds; if you prefer a single queensize mattress, let them know in advance

Welcoming Staff, Beautiful Hotel, would 100% recommend
Reviewed 22 hours ago

Amazing experience. Hotel staff went above and beyond to accommodate us. We were able to check in at 10, despite check in being at 3PM, after a long flight. And, they even upgraded us from
a small "cozy" room to a suite! They were friendly, knowledgeable, and welcoming.The rooms were nice as well, some parts could use some new paint and updates, but the bathroom was spotless, and the bed was so comfortable. The tea, espresso and biscuits were a really nice touch. The Dalloway Terrace was perfect for tea, and they were able to accommodate my gluten allergy. We loved visiting the Bloomsbury Club bar for light snacks and drinks. Great music, friendly staff. The interior and exterior decor of the hotel is second to none, and very "instagrammable." Overall, would definitely recommend The Bloomsbury if you are looking for a hotel with great amenities, a great location in central London, and extra special staff.

We will definitely be back!

Great Ambiance, Location and Service A+ London Experience

I try to stay in a different section of London each time I visit to get a good feel of the city. My Bloomsbury experience has been one of the best thus far. I highly recomend it as a hotel, restaurant, and location. I walked to the majority of my sights. Service was top notch. Would stay again in a heartbeat. Note, I am a female and traveled solo. This area was exceptionally comfortable and safe.

Memorable anniversary weekend
Reviewed 2 days ago

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at The Bloomsbury and we will definitely be back again. The Guest Relations Manager, Than Min, ensured we had all that we needed from check in to departure. We stayed in the Luxury Studio Suite and were very impressed with the tastefully decorated spacious corner suite that had all the luxuries a traveller could need (including a Dyson hairdryer). The bathroom was the main highlight, generously spacious with a stunning freestanding roll top bath. Without a doubt, this has been the nicest bathroom out of all the hotel suites we've stayed in! We tried all the hotel bars / restaurants and the service was excellent at each one. The coral room salon bar is worth a visit, we couldn't help feeling this is what London in the 1020's must have been like. Than suggested we pop into the Bloomsbury Club Bar after our show and it was the perfect way to end a wonderful weekend. With live music playing, amazing cocktails (I'll be back for another Dora Carrington) and attentive bar staff.

From arrival to departure the experience in the Bloomsbury Hotel is wonderful. Attentive staff and the hotel's location makes this property a must stay location when in London. I look forward to my next stay at the Bloomsbury Hotel.

We always stay here. It's in a central location, around the corner from Oxford St Shopping, a short walk to Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square and many more. The staff are friendly, professional and welcoming. It's lovely when you're welcomed back by the doorman. The rooms are clean and the decor is calming. The windows open so you don't need the heating on all the time. You will sink in to the dreamy beds. The Dalloway Terrace restaurant is a must, the food is delicious and it feels like you're sitting in and English conservatory. TIP: Request an outside room otherwise you overlook an internal atrium which can be a little dark.
