Great location (beside British Museum), friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms. It's certainly not luxurious (spartan rooms, shared bathrooms), but so clean that that doesn't seem to matter. I completely agree with the reviewer who said, "You won't find better value in this area" -- or, I would add, anywhere else in London. The hotel is being updated fast, so the...

I stayed at this hotel for 5 days in October/November 2012. As others have mentioned, the hotel decor is dated but everything is very clean. The rooms are simple, they have full length mirrors, a sink, a window (mine had a nice view of the British Museum and the pretty street below), a wardrobe, tea and coffee making facilities, and...

I stayed for alomst a week in October. The room I had was pretty narrow, but functional. There are still constructions going on in the building, and the room service only took care of the bed, but not the floor. It made me wonder how often they had hoovered the carpet. I was a bit disappointed when I found out...

Maybe a bad day, but let down by one of the worst breakfasts I've (not) eaten! I quite like the good value slightly seedy Georgian hotels in Bloomsbury, as long as you don't look for luxury and are happy with shared bathrooms they can be very good value and friendly. The Ruskin ticks these boxes, a bit run down but...

We needed a London hotel just for one night, with me heading to Kings Cross and my wife to the West End next morning. The Ruskin was perfectly located for our needs. And if we'd wanted to spend time in the British Museum, well that was literally over the road. As it was just for the night, we made do...

The hotel is in a renovated Georgian building. I was asked to pay in advance before even seeing the room, which was a bit disconcerting, but it turned out all right. I had a single that was small, clean, and quiet, and faced an annex to one of my favorite London attractions, the British Museum. The hotel is also only...

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.
