This hotel has everything you need for a stay in London. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, the breakfast was wonderful, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the location is perfect. I stayed in a quad ensuite for a few nights with my parents and brother, and in a different quad without a bathroom another night. Even though the...

The Ridgemount Hotel is basic and cheap. If you expect more than that, then you will be disappointed. You definitely will not find a hotel this cheap in Bloomsvury. On the whole, the hotel feels worn and a little rundown, but everything worked. Free wi-fi was a definitely plus. I had a single room with shared bath. The room itself...

We had 3 nights at the Ridgemount, excellent hosts, gave great advice on transport, pubs etc. Breakfast was excellent, a great start to the day, free internet access was available any time of the day as was tea & coffee. We had a room facing the court yard, lovely outlook. Excellent location as we were catching the Eurostar to Paris,...

If you're looking for luxury then this hotel won't be for you. If you want central London at around £50 a night, then this is a pretty good bet. It's in Bloomsbury, just round the corner from the British Museum and easily accessible from Euston Square/Goodge St/Russell square tube stops. Location cannot be beaten. The room was basic but comfortable....

My wife and I had high hopes for this hotel based on the reviews here and were more than satisfied. Our room, although at the top floor was spacious and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and very much like family by the end of the trip. Its hard to know what to say that hasnt been said. Even without...

Since I found it, I've always been guided by Trip Advisor but, having booked into the Ridgenount, I began to have doubts that any London could approach the quality I wanted at the price I was paying. How crazy my doubts were. This must be the best place to stay in London be it business or pleasure. I was travelling...

My husband and I and two of my sisters and their husbands took a week long trip to London in March. My husband did a great deal of research and came up with the Ridgemont Hotel for us to stay. He chose it because it was affordable and centrally located and got great reviews on TripAdvisor. And now I am...

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighbourhood Profile
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
