Double check the room spec before purchasing
The hotel it self was fine, excellent breakfast and brilliant service. Unfortunately the description of the Bloomsbury king on the website stated all Bloombury king rooms come with a generous seating area. We brought the room thinking we would have little more space. Our room didnt even have a chair let alone a generous seating area. From my experience the website misrepresents the room Ive twice asked for a response from the manager re the above, once via the reception desk and once via email . Unfortunately no response was forthcoming, appalling customer service.

We overnighted in London after a theatre trip, extremely comfortable and elegant hotel.

Overpriced single room, with a very uncomfortable lopsided mattress.

Gorgeous boutique hotel
Hotel was a really lovely boutique style hotel. Gorgeous furniture and nice relaxed atmosphere. I booked my trip last minute and in a rush and hadn’t realised I’d booked a single room. The hotel was fully booked so I couldn’t change and was worried it would be time. This was fine though the single room was enough. Breakfast was continental but not your average and the coffee was fabulous. The staff were very attentive and super helpful. Lovely stay I will book again.
