First, I'll start by saying that I would definitely recommend this hotel - I have stayed here twice with my partner - we loved it the first time and loved it even more the second time! The staff are very attentive without being overbearing. On our visit last week, my partner briefly mentioned that it was his birthday, and upon...

Everything about our stay at the Bloomsbury was perfect. From the great welcome at the door right through to the complimentary bottle of water when we left the whole stay was fantastic. The rooms were perfectly sized with a nice comfy bed. Will definitely be staying here again

Apart from the room size (tooooo small for 2 people with 4 cases) the hotel, its staff and facilities were excellent for our 3 night stay. It is a great location in the West End, close to transport and across the road from a fabulous Indian Reastaurant

I should start by saying we found a great deal on the hotel on the TripAdvisor website. We are always keen to book directly with hotels so contacted The Bloomsbury about the deal. They had no knowledge of it but investigated it themselves, found our deal and rang us back and price-matched it exactly meaning a £200 saving for the...

We had an overnight stay here for my friends 40th and it was perfection. I'd return here in a heart beat! If I could mark it with 6 stars I would.

This hotel has a stunning lobby area where I love having a glass of champagne on arrival. The restaurant, Dalloways has been open about a year and is fast becoming the place to be seen in London.

The Bloomsbury exceeded our expectations as a wonderful home-base during a recent holiday trip to London. Our suite was surprisingly spacious, with a very large walk-in closet, a shower and a tub. Because our room had enclosed atrium on both sides, it was virtually silent — assuring a sound night's sleep. There's even a jewel of a bar downstairs. The location...
