A lovely hotel full of quaint English character and charm, set in London's literary capital of Bloomsbury

The Lowdown

The Morton Hotel occupies a beautifully renovated old building in the beating heart of London’s Bloomsbury, the former stomping grounds of author Virginia Woolf. This centrally located gem sits right in the center of the city, close to the English capital’s most renowned sights. The closest underground stop is just around the corner, meaning Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and any other must-sees that make your list are just an easy tube ride away.
Standing proudly on the edge of leafy Russell Square Park, the grand corner building becomes even more impressive when you set foot across the threshold. Hip hues paired with interesting design pieces make the interiors dignified yet inviting, and the elegant guest rooms provide the perfect retreat after a day of sightseeing. You’ll also want to stop by The Library Bar & Lounge, an exquisitely designed, retro-chic space – perfect for winding down an evening with a glass of wine.


Bloomsbury bedrooms are thoughtfully designed with soothing hues and elegant furnishings, and you’ll find a plush double or two twin-sized beds. You can expect underfloor heating in the bathrooms and a dash of eccentricity throughout.
Amenities – En-suite bathroom with shower or bath tub- Heated towel rails- 42-in. flat-screen TV with Sky channels- Safe- Air conditioning – Wi-Fi access- iPod docking station- Telephone- Hair dryer – Tea and coffee facilities


Relaxing drinks and light snacks are served in the hotel’s Library Bar & Lounge. A wide range of restaurants, cafés and bars can be found within a short stroll of the front door.


Conveniently located just minutes from Russell Square tube station, this Bloomsbury hotel puts the best of London at your fingertips. If you like to explore on foot, you can take a leisurely stroll towards the West End and go shopping on Regent Street, or soak up the playful atmosphere of Covent Garden.

Just arrived back after staying overnight at The Morton Hotel. At first the impression wasn't favourable as the reception staff were a bit abrupt when we arrived an hour and a half early for check in. We came back late evening after spending the day with friends. The staff on duty then were more welcoming, and checked us in efficiently. On finding the room it was extremely clean large spacious with amazing air conditioning. Better than most hotels abroad. The bath was enormous and plenty of supplies of tea, coffee and milk. The continental breakfast was wonderful and offered a good selection the croissants and pastries looked and tasted home made and were still warm. All served in their stylish lounge area. I wouldn't hesitate to book again loved it thank you.

Great room and location
Reviewed 1 week ago

We stayed here during a hot weekend in July - the price was really good value for London and the hotel was really nice. Spacious room and bathroom with sophisticated decor and nice cool air conditioning. I’d definitely stay again.
It’s a shame we didn’t have a chance to have a cocktail in the library.
We didn’t have breakfast at the hotel - there are lots of good options nearby.

Yes, I’d book the Morton Hotel again.

Great location on Russel Square near the Underground and British Museum.
The room was compact with a convenient, useful layout. Clean. Comfortable bed with crisp cotton linens. Large walk in shower, large sink and plenty of surface space in the bathroom. Big cotton bath towels. Nice contemporary feel to the place.
Excellent service by the staff.
I’d book this again. Found on TripAdvisor and Agoda travel at an excellent rate.

Peaceful and elegant
Reviewed 1 week ago

I had a single room on the 3rd floor. Spacious, air-conditioned, immaculately clean, and very quiet. A little bit of street traffic noise, because it's diagonally across the street from Russell Square. The wardrobe had an empty refrigerator so that I could store my own food, a nice bonus. Quiet lounge and breakfast bar in the basement. Altho breakfast was continental, there's a good selection of healthy food. This is a great place for adults who want peace and quiet, and is worth the price. Helpful and unobtrusive staff. I will definitely come back next year.

Lovely boutique hotel

A well placed, clean and all round lovely hotel. Nice room with a view over Russell Square. Staff were very polite and pleasant.

Didn’t use any of the facilities other than the room so can’t rate these.

Only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is the room was warm as the air con was not great.

Great little hotel.
