On the plus side the hotel is in a good location with easy access to the west end and tourist sites, it's clean and staff are good. On the minus side the breakfasts are lukewarm at best and some decoration / renovation required in some areas. For a long weekend break with no frills it's ideal.

We visited London as a family. This hotel is ideally situated very close to the underground on the Piccadilly line only one stop from Kings Cross. We arrived early in the morning and left our luggage in the hotel until we returned later. The rooms were clean and the bathroom towels were beautifully white. Soaps and shampoos were provided along...

Great location in the city centre, just perfect for a quick escape to London. Rooms are just ok, but right for the price. I have to thank the staff for being so kind to me and let me change the room for another one I liked more. It was a lovely weekend!

We have used this hotel many times and always told everyone that it is an average hotel with a poor breakfast but in a good location. What a change this time around, the breakfast has much improved and is as good as any. The quality and variety have both improved a lot. Well done

A big hotel. It's old, well worn and used. However it's not expensive by London standards so at a mid to low price it's great. Very clean and a very central location near the tube. Rooms are large. To is very small for such a big room !

My wife and I had a very comfortable room on the top floor with a fine view of the newly green Russell Park. The hotel offered a good restaurant-pub, a convenient coffee shop, a store (where it was possible to update our Oyster), and a lounge-bar area. Access to the Underground was easy as was access to several bus lines....

The Imperial is the flagship of the Imperial chain and, as such, is more expensive than the others we have stayed in. We chose an Executive room because we wanted something a little more special since we were celebrating our anniversary. The room was the largest we have stayed in on our many travels and was comfortable. Apart from the...

Neighbourhood Profile
Bloomsbury
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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Imperial Hotel is the flagship of Imperial London Hotels. We're proud of it for a reason. Offering breathtaking views over London's greatest public square, it reflects every ounce of our dedication to service and value. Like all our hotels, the Imperial combines a remarkable location with the great facilities and friendly service of a family-run business. At the Imperial, though, while the price remains extremely reasonable, we add an extra dash of something special. The location is remarkable, connecting guests to the rest of London in minutes. In addition to the central Atrium Bar & Cafe, facilities include a casino and a gift shop. Restaurants and cafes offer plenty of choice to families and business travellers alike. Indulge in the intriguing delights of Coffee and Candy. Enjoy a late night at the Night and Day Bar, serving classic pub fare at great prices. And relax; we've been doing this since 1837, and we know how to make your stay a restful one. ... more   less
