This is the quad room, with one double and two single beds with private shower. Definitely one of the better values in London, especially for its convenient and safe location. The room was always clean and has a good selection of biscuits and tea re-stocked every night!

This is a view of the Thanet from the outside. The greenery and blue awning make it stand out from the other B&B's in the Georgian row houses on Bedford Place.
Directions: Tube: Russell Square
The tarrif for a quad room (small private bath) was 108 GBP/night--not bad for a great London location.
Unique Quality: The full breakfast here is great--especially the porridge, and the owners and all the staff that we met were personable and helpful. It only has 16 rooms, so service is very personal and breakfast is unhurried. They have won numerous awards (including one for most beautiful small hotel entryway, thanks to their lovely plants!), and a walk to Russell Square Tube station takes about five minutes. The rooms toward the back look out on a little garden and are very quiet at night. We stayed in a quad room on the first floor, which, although cramped like most London rooms, was clean, inviting, and very functional.
Directions: Bedford Place, Bloomsbury (directly north of Bloomsbury Square)
