In the beating heart of London, close to Theatreland, The British Museum and Covent Garden, The Bloomsbury, a magnificent Edwin Lutyens’ Grade II-listed, neo-Georgian building sits amid the historic 18th century neighbourhood of the same name; a literary heartland filled with galleries, bookshops and a wealth of cultural heritage. Following a multimillion pound refurbishment, the final chapter in The Bloomsbury’s redevelopment includes beautifully designed Luxury Studio Suites, Sitting Room and grand salon bar - The Coral Room. The Coral Room, designed in collaboration with internationally-acclaimed, Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, features 36 original pieces of art commissioned with illustrator Luke Edward Hall and inspired by the surrounding Bloomsbury area. The restoration of The Bloomsbury also includes Dalloway Terrace, a charming indoor and outdoor restaurant and The Bloomsbury Club Bar which takes inspiration from the Bloomsbury Set, evoking the glamour of a bygone era.

Hotel's Favourite
5.0 of 5 bubbles
I stayed here few months ago and it was lovely. But this time was special due to my birthday celebration, and a weekend out in London, which all The Bloomsbury team made it perfect.

We were welcomed and greeted by Alejandra at Reception who was very informative and chatty with us. Once we checked-in in the room I found a prosecco bottle and lovely card wishing me a happy birthday, which was a very nice touch.

We opted to go for a drink to the glamorous Coral Room, the Spanish guy from Valencia welcome us, and Jonathan made the Danny Ocean's cocktail for us.... And it was amazing!
All staff was very attentive and cheerful, but they went an extra mile when Alejandro, brought us a happy birthday plate with macarons and two glasses of Champagne! Wow! Our first day couldn't start better!

Room was lovely, very well equipped, very comfortable king size bed and nice to have shower and bath in the room. Housekeeping team refresh the room and brought some tasty chocolates in the afternoon, the room attendant who I didn't catch her name, was friendly and very smile!

We were checked out by Alejandra again and she kindly kept our luggage. The very polite concierge Kem escort us to the the exit and wished us a nice journey back home.

Thanks again to all The Bloomsbury team for such an amazing stay, we will definitely come back.

Special attention to Marta who did the reservation for us and made sure all our stay went perfect!

From the moment one enters this hotel to the day of departure, the staff is consistently welcoming, supportive, and ever-aware of you as their guest. In particular, Maria, Estelita, and Victor in the breakfast room. I have never been served better in any of the hundreds of hotels and restaurants I've frequented around the globe. Sebastian and Ivan at reception never miss a beat, are extremely professional, and always have answers to the myriad inquiries one might pose. The room I stayed in was perfectly appointed, always remade as if the first day by the capable and careful housekeeping staff, and served as a welcome respite at the end of each work day. The location of the Bloomsbury Hotel allows ease of movement all in a context of safety. I can't say enough positive things about this place!

If you are reading some reviews before you book the Bloomsbury Hotel, then you will be reassured that this is indeed a fantastic hotel.

I booked directly with the hotel there are other sites you can book with but I have always found that if you book direct things are so much simpler also they have various offers that are not available to other sites so check the Bloomsbury website for offers.

We chose the make a night of it offer which is amazing as it offers an early check-in from 10 am and much more importantly a late check out at 14:00 so if you are out late to see a show or partying then this is incredible as most hotels are 11;00 am or midday if you are lucky.

On arrival, a complimentary hand sanitiser was given and with this small gesture informed me that all relevant procedures were in place and reassured me we were in safe hands. We were escorted to our room which was very large and well-appointed as we were booked in on a Sunday (which is generally quieter) I asked if we could be upgraded and to my surprise and great delight we were offered another room.

After 5 minutes of arriving, I was delighted with my choice of Hotel so straight away I was very happy until we went down to the Coral room where we ordered a cocktail called Garden Party and it was the best cocktail I have ever had served perfectly in a cooper Coupé it was divine, so we had another one!

The hotel also has an outdoor restaurant which is suitable whatever the weather.
I liked the whole ambience of the hotel as it was very relaxed and a professional friendly atmosphere which was a constant throughout our stay even when the restaurant was busy so it will pay to book this in advance when you book your room.

The food and service are excellent no more needed than that.

The breakfast was perfect.

So from the moment, we arrived, to the moment we left the Bloomsbury team went out of their way to ensure that we were totally satisfied.

I would like to thank Roxane for ensuring our brief stay was exceptional

George and Hovo in the Dalloway terrace for fantastic service.

There are of course other staff who were equally effortlessly professional whilst still remaining friendly that ensured our stay was perfect.

This will be my first choice of hotel for my next stay in London

Once you factor in the early arrival and late checkout and amazing breakfast included and £75 to spend on food or drinks then it represents very good value

There is an NCP car park 7 minutes walk away which is reasonable, book in advance online and you just drive in and drive out it's very secure and you walk right past the British Museum on the way.

I liked the way the entrance to the hotel is tucked away it feels more exclusive.

So if you are whisking your partner off for a romantic weekend or a family you will be happy with your choice.

Just returned from a 4-night stay at The Bloomsbury, and my husband and I really enjoyed this hotel. The staff is wonderful - everyone at reception was helpful and friendly, and the gentlemen at the door were equally great. Our room was upgraded from a queen bed to a king due to our Orbitz Platinum status, which is always appreciated. While the bed was extremely comfortable, the room was very small (classic king room). The layout of the room and bathroom were also not ideal, but realistically you don’t go to London to spend lots of time in your hotel room. Housekeeping was very good overall, but we ran into a slight hiccup our last evening (already addressed by the hotel’s wonderful manager). My husband and I were celebrating an anniversary, and the hotel welcomed us with a lovely note and chocolate covered strawberries.
What really set The Bloomsbury apart for us was the location. We’ve stayed at a couple of other hotels in London, and the location of The Bloomsbury was far superior. Located about a block off of a main road (Tottenham Court Rd), and two blocks off of Oxford Street, you have access to shops, restaurants, supermarkets, and transportation. Regent Street is also close by, and the British Museum is literally around the corner.
We would absolutely stay at The Bloomsbury again the next time we’re in London.

Oh, and be sure to have a meal at the hotel’s restaurant - Dalloway Terrace. Excellent food, and incredible staff!

I’ve heard a lot of good reviews from my friends at Bloomsbury Hotel. So my cousins and I had our breakfast on Sunday morning at this hotel and we enjoyed it very much. The place is so different from the hotels I’ve been into. It’s like a breath of fresh air since I am staying in a barren place of Abu dhabi, which is desert. I am a fan of an old fashioned buildings which made it more exciting for me to enjoy the ambience. The place is clean as well. I was able to use their washroom, and I can tell that their service is 5star because of how clean and organized their washroom is. (I’m always an observant when it comes to loo- though I came for a food but it’s a plus factor for me)

The superb part was the staff were all accomodating and welcomed us with their warmth. If you’re a tourist that’s what you always want to get when you enter a restaurant. You don’t want to feel like a tourist and you want to feel like you’re just a local. As I observed, they treat everyone equally even if you’re Asian or Western. I personally asked their names to give them credit for their service. Thank you so much Ms. Estelita, Luminita, Simona, and Valentine.

They have also variations of food that gives you more choices. If you order something from their menu, you will know that it is personally made with passion by the chef.
I am 100% recommending this place if you are going to visit London in the future. 😀

Great weekend stay at The Bloomsbury whilst in London to see Harry Potter and The Cursed Child. A very warm welcome from the staff on arrival who took our bags for us before we even got to the front door. We were able to check in early (around 11am) which was great. The location is ideal, just off of Tottenham Court Road, where there are many shops and restaurants but as it is just off the road it is very quiet. Tottenham Court Road tube station is just a few minutes walk away. The room was spacious and comfortable with a mini bar, complementary water and hot drinks and biscuits. Very comfy bed. Bathroom was small but perfectly fine. We requested a quiet room and got just that. The lounge area was a nice touch with a lit fire. There was a wedding on whilst we were staying but we would never have known if it wasn't for a sign stating so. The only reason I haven't rated 5 stars is due to breakfast being very pricey at £20+ pp for continental, but I guess it is a 5* hotel and Central London...
We would definitely stay again next time we're in the area.

Check in was a bit strange. First we were asked for our passports. Generally we don't need them to travel in England so didn't have them but they graciously accepted my driving licence instead. There was also a man behind reception watching us intently, which was slightly creepy. They asked for credit card and put a hold of £1000 on it which seemed very steep. Perhaps they had mistaken us for international criminals. Before I arrived, I filled out the preference form asking for a quiet, high room hopefully so we got some sort of view. We got a room on the first floor looking into the light well just above the annoying humming aircon machinery. The first floor is effectively the bottom of the light well so our 'view' was the wall opposite, a pot plant and the cigarette butts people had thrown whilst leaning out the windows to smoke. This made the room dark and slightly depressing. We complained at reception about the hum of the aircon and they promised to look into it but we never heard anything about it again so I suspect they didn't care. The size of the room was small, even for central London and the decoration uninspiring. There was meant to be a turn down service but we only got this on one of the three nights. We used the coral room cocktail bar. The room is lovely, the cocktails some of the best I have had but they were quite expensive. Fine, I didn't mind that because it was my wife's birthday but was shocked when I got the bill and found they had added a service charge. I don't think I have ever had this, even in the American Bar at the Savoy. The best of this hotel was the breakfast. Staff were attentive and the food good. I did give my feedback and they 'apologised' and said we could have free upgrade next time but I'm not interested. We visit London every year as my wife was born nearby and I used to live there but I doubt we will use this hotel again as there is better for nearly £1000 for 3 nights.

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your Bloomsbury experience with us! I am delighted that you enjoyed our Breakfast and Cocktails in The Coral Room. Please accept my apologies with the challenge that you faced with the room allocation. We never usually hear comments about cigarette butts and I will look into this straight away. Service Charge is, as usual in the UK, a discretionary charge and if there was something amiss in our service, I would be more than happy to assist you further should you decide to reach out to me directly. Asking for an identification is compulsory in the United Kingdom and adds to the safety and security of our guests. Finally, we do indeed take an authorisation from our guests upon their arrival to our property. This charge takes into account the amount to be settled for ones own room charges and a small additional for in case our guest enjoys one of our fantastic outlets. Please Email me if you would like me to explain this further in detail. My Email address is Sebastian_Annandale@doylecollection.com Warm regards, Sebastian Annandale Front of House Manager

This was my latest stay at the hotel, having stayed here many times several years ago for work. The Bloomsbury provides what I would consider a five star service at a great price point. The hotel is high quality, the service is excellent and for me, provides a great experience for both leisure and business stays. Me and my wife thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and we are particularly grateful to Leonardo and John Dunne who worked at the bar, who accommodated my wife's food allergies with passion and empathy. They made her feel safe that what she was drinking was made with care and she loved the drinks they made. We will return to this excellent hotel on our next trip to London for sure.

The Bloomsbury is a genuine 5 Star hotel with 5 star personnel from the ground up. What a pleasure it is to stay in an hotel where everybody is cheerful and happy. We stayed last weekend in a suite, totally luxurious! but have stayed before in the entry level rooms which are superb.
The manager, Sebastian was fabulous. Nothing is too much trouble for him. The reception staff are fantastic especially Marcela and Ivan who has been promoted from Doorman to a much more responsible job as a concierge. A certain sign that the management at The Bloomsbury promote from within the organisation and reward hard work and diligence.
The Dalloway Terrace is a great place to eat in central London. It is quiet, very comfortable and refined and has a very comprehensive menu to suit all times and occasions. The manager, Georgi, is also in charge of the famous Coral Room cocktail bar. He definitely made our stay this time. Pointing out some great bubbles which are produced in England. The sparkling wine which he chose for us is Rathfinny Classic Cuvee 2018. It's an exceptional English sparkling wine produced in Sussex and has had many great reviews from wine critics and drinkers alike.
To illustrate the quality of service, we decided to have a glass before leaving for home on Sunday. We had eaten a superb breakfast under the watchful eyes of Maria and Esmalita and weren't particularly hungry but it was 1.30 and we were peckish. Georgi suggested scones with cream and raspberry jam. It was heavenly and we a second helping to speed us on our way home.
There is a fabulous "club" downstairs on the lower ground floor called The Bloomsbury Club Bar. The drinks, especially for us, the Brandy Alexanders are superb. There is often live music and the 3 man band who were playing on Saturday night were brilliant. We were greatly entertained and served by Diego who was better than special in looking after us
Finally, I must mention that the hotel has a new General Manager, Susanne Traudt who we met and found to be very professional, energetic and friendly. I am sure she will bring a distinctive, creative twist to what is already near perfection.
