Great location, Shame about the hotel

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 7, 2010

Just spent 2 nights there and hardly slept a wink. I was expecting to see Rigsby appear at any moment! Do NOT take a room at the front of the hotel. The road noise will have you up all night. I was on the 3rd floor and it was still as if there was nothing between my bed and the road. This was made worse by loose manhole covers in the road that banged loudly every time a vehicle drove over them i.e. every minute or so. We were so deprived of sleep that I rowed with the wife which spoiled the rest of my trip.

Unique Quality: A great view of the Bedford Hotel opposite. Gaze in awe at the only hotel in London capable of making you feel glad you are at the Bloomsbury Park Hotel. Look on in wonder at the filthy net curtains fluttering in the breeze behind metal crital windows, and the cracked balconies; and equally cracked and filthy guests sullying forth from it's grand (not), hand painted (in genuine wood effect paint),entrance. It has all the grandeur of a second hand bicycle shop.

Convenience Westminster Accommodations

We stayed here for seven nights in December. Staff was courteous and the room was clean. However, we had some quirky issues with housekeeping. Each day we'd either not get enough towels or any soap and shampoo or get the right amount. When we'd ask the on-duty staff for more supplies, they graciously took our request but then would forget to deliver on it.

As with many greater London accommodations, this one is fairly old. There was small elevator and well-maintained stairs. However, the plumbing is in need of attention. The toilet did not flush easily which made for a minor annoyance.

Unique Quality: Close to Russell Square and Holburn Tube stations. Two blocks from the British Museum.

Directions: Russell Square

This small and charming hotel offers a friendly atmosphere with traditional style. Ideally located in one of London's most lively areas, midway between the financial district and The West End. Its central location is ideal experiencing London's cosmopolitan flair and attractions. The recently re-invented British Museum and Covent Garden, with its bustling atmosphere, are situated within easy walking distance.

Another addition to the Thistle Hotel chain in London, this one near Russell Square is still being renovated, but offers decent sized rooms, a nice breakfast room, and basement pub with big screen TV for Skysports :).

Unique Quality: Two blocks from the British Museum, a ten minute walk to Covent Garden and the Theater District, what more could you ask for, at about $100 a night for a double room.
