  • The Landseer Bar is a dark and moody oak-panelled hideaway perfect for pre-theater drinks or post-sightseeing relaxation
  • Considering its location, there’s little to no street noise — rare for a London hotel

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

When can I stay here again?
Reviewed 24 hours ago

Location is wonderful (though I had trouble finding the front door when I arrived at night), service is amazing, decor is beautiful, and the room comfortable. I'll start recommending this hotel to all London travelers.

I've been here two nights and can't say enough wonderful things about this lovely hotel. The location is perfect, down a quiet alley yet two blocks from SoHo. My room is extraordinary, large and cozy at once. The service staff are all courteous, wise, gracious, and just absolutely great people. In particular, Than, the shift supervisor, has been one of the most helpful and engaged people I've met, and ditto for Paolo, the concierge, who helped me with something for my daughter that literally saved my trip from being a disaster. I have stayed in five star hotels across the world, and I don't know that I've had too many comparable experiences to The Bloomsbury. And the bar and the terrace and the lounges are just gorgeously-appointed (the wallpaper is fabulous), clean, disarming, excellent all-around. Simply, WOW.

Terrific Stay

Recently stayed 5 days in this terrific property. It is elegant and well maintained in a convenient yet quiet location. Most importantly the hotel staff makes you feel right at home and they are genuinely very friendly and committed to excellent customer service.

I can't wait to be there again!!!!

I can't wait to go to this hotel again. First of all, it's a beautiful place and the room was spacious and comfortable. Second, it has a great location! Literally two minutes away from Oxford St. and from the Totenham Court Rd tube station. Last but not least at all - the Coral Room Bar! Oh my goodness, that was the best of them all. The bar is beautiful and the drinks, although a bit pricy, are heaven.
Breakfast downstairs was amazingly good, with a choice of eggs, cheese, whatever you like. The breakfast staff were extremely nice, especially the nice lady that greeted us every morning with such a great smile.
There is also a restaurant at the hotel which we had dinner on our last night, the food was very good and service delightful.
All in all, I think I finally found my favorite place to stay in London, will most definitely return, no doubts about it.

Luxury London.
Reviewed 2 days ago

Tucked away hotel which we were able to walk from London Euston very easily. Very friendly greeting on arrival & free upgrade to a luxury suite.
Whole hotel was very clean & tidy with attention to detail observed.
Room was very large with bath & shower. All the usual tea, coffee & mini bar etc.
Breakfast in the morning was excellent, great choice & served at a good pace. There is a buffet choice but also the ability to choose from a menu of hot choices.
I would recommend having a drink in the Coral room, great decor with very friendly staff, no cocktail was a problem, and free nibbles!
Great location in London, the only reason we scored a four was at 7am Sunday morning we were woken by the sound of recycling bottles going on, not impressed!
