A super basic budget option in a convenient area of London. I was worried about the shared bathrooms, but they were very clean and plentiful. Top marks for the friendly and helpful front-desk staff. Late-night checkin was an added bonus.

This hotel was great, super friendly and helpful staff and spotless rooms. The hotel was in a really central location and manned 24hrs. The link up with the Bloomsbury cafe downstairs was wonderful and made breakfast a real treat. Would highly recommend.

Excellent place to stay and very convenient. Friendly welcome when arriving, room was great, comfortable and very quiet. Really close to some good places to eat and places of interest. Ideal for a few nights stopover if travelling on business to London.

Hey Wronnie, we don't have any laundry facilities for guests to use, but there's a laundromat on Marchmont St, less than half a minute from the St Athans, and also a Dry Cleaners just around the corner. - stefan

Yes, Martha G got it exactly right from our website: "Most of our bedrooms are with shared bathroom facilities, but we do also have some en-suite rooms with private shower, toilet and TV – please ask when booking."
