We were shown to our room which was I must say very small with a not too pleasant view of a fire escape but as we were only staying one night it wasn't worth bothering changing rooms...

The staff really make this hotel, nothing is too much trouble. Patricia and Aida were particularly pleasant on my most recent stay. The rooms are clean and have everything you need. Breakfast has a good selection of products. I stay here regularly for work and would recommend.

My husband and I stayed at Bloomsbury Park Hotel last Saturday. We stayed in room 604. It was a great room and good value for money. Huge bed, lovely bedding. All the staff were friendly and efficient. Breakfast was great, large choice of hot and cold food. We will definitely stay here again when in London next.

lovely room, clean and tidy. fantastic breakfast. gave us the option of two rooms, which was nice - noisier front aspect or quieter upper floor the only thing i have suggested is they supply more plug sockets, as to charge my phone i had to unplug either kettle or lamps.
