Staff friendly, room ok if a little tired and in need of some TLC. Cleanliness was ok, some dust in areas. Stayed 2 nights in 303. This was at the back of the hotel so possibly quieter. Constant door slamming from other guests was annoying. Breakfast ok. The breakfast room was so hot I just ate quickly and left. My...

Stayed for one night only. Headboard falling apart, mucky curtains, very noisy. Hairdryer nearly caught fire. Been given another hairdryer which was tested over a year ago and again nearly caught fire! They didn't have any other hairdryers that work. Breakfast full in oil.

There are thousands of 'budget' places like this in London, ranging from really terrible to pretty good. I've stayed in all kinds.The Bloomsbury Palace is at the higher end of the scale. I booked a single room, which admittedly was one of the smallest I've ever stayed in. But it was clean (recently refurbished), the bed was comfortable and the...

The hotel location is ok and the staff were efficient. I booked a single room and it was small but that was ok, there was everything you need and the bathroom was modern. The shower was good. Breakfast was adequate although the room is very small. However in my room the paintwork was filthy, as were the blind and net...

Stayed two nights with my mother and sister. I had read the reviews and had some doubts, although no complaints were found about the cleanliness. Well, I would definitely recommend it. Close to the main attractions, to the main transport connections (bus stops and underground), pubs, shops and supermarkets open till midnight. Welcoming staff, kind and available at any time....

Having seen some pretty awful reviews I was dreading my stay however I was pleasantly surprised. I had a tripe room (207) to myself which is probably why I am not complaining about the room space - I thought the room price was reasonable for London and also how central it was. Decor was nice. The bed was so comfortable...

I asked if I could have a cooked breakfast & she looked at me like a piece of dirt on the ground! Breakfast is meant to be at 7:30am & it was 7:19am...she very RUDLY said it would be another...

Hotel is central and the cleanness is above average. Be careful that hotel has rooms on basement and does not offer intercontinental breakfast buffet. Only the typical English breakfast and the breakfast room is always full as it is small.
