    Historical Traveler Reviews The Euro Hotel London

    Comfortable, updated - except the mattresses!

    from

    Our family of four stayed here for GBP89/night in March 2006.

    Our room had nice new carpet, beautiful curtains (10' windows, 14' ceilings!!), the in-room sink had a big scratch in the bowl...little bottles of free shampoo, plenty of towels. Shower/toilets were down the hall. En-suite available for an additional cost.

    The breakfast was awesome and the breakfast room bright and airy. Very helpful staff. Free public computer to check your email, which I sometimes used while waiting for my cooked breakfast and drinking pineapple or orange juice.

    The downside is the mattresses. I could feel every spring (each about 2" across, spaced about 3" apart). The single beds were not nearly as horrible -but the only way to sleep on the double bed was to get into it exhausted from a full day of touring and enjoying London.

    Very good location - very quiet yet close to Russell Square tube, King's Cross/St. Pancras and Euston stations. Plenty of little shops in the area including a Boots, Tesco and a pair of attractive pubs.

    Location, location, location - and good value too

    from

    A well located hotel with friendly staff. My room was comfortable and while not "5 star" was good value for the price and for the position.

    Five minute walk only to Russell Square tube station, and no more than ten minutes to King's Cross. Handy too for the British Museum.

    Perhaps the hotel could start serving breakfast a little earlier in the morning for those who have appointments to make or trains to catch?

    Spotlessly clean, friendly and great value

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Euro after a late evening in London and it was exactly what we wanted. It is situated in a quiet crescent close to the theatre district and has recently been refurbished.

    We had a room on the first floor overlooking the gardens, which was spotlessly clean. Staff are friendly and helpful and the full english breakfasts served in the mornings are hearty. A very good small hotel, friendly and clean - definitely recommended.

    Won't be back here

    from

    I just returned from a stay at the Euro Hotel and was quite disappointed. Their brochures and website portrayed the hotel as a small, comfortable place that was very concerned about pleasing its guests. Unfortunately, that was not what I found.

    The location was very good, near some museums and a tube stop, and the outside of the building looked very nice. That's about all I can say in favor of the hotel.

    Like other reviewers have said, the room was threadbare. The floors were slanted and the room had an unpleasant odor to it. I skipped breakfast after the first day because the eggs and bacon they served were not fully cooked and the staff seemed really annoyed and frazzled (not exactly bending over backwards to take care of us).

    The Euro says it will allow you to use their computer to check your email, but this was not the case when I stayed there. They also say they will hold your bags on your day of departure, but I had to argue with the receptionist for a while to get them to do this.

    I was a budget traveler that spent very little time in the room while in London. But just going back to the Euro to change or sleep made me depressed. I would definitely spend a few more pounds to stay in a nicer place next time, and I think you should too...

    Good low cost option, but a bit threadbare - Mar 2004

    from

    We stayed at the Euro Hotel for 5 nights. Overall it was clean enough but threadbare in regards to carpet, drapes, bedding, etc. But...it was a good deal for the neighborhood and included breakfast. The front desk staff is nice but consists of overworked college students who don't know the area well, nor the tourist sites. If I had to do it again, I might spent 15-20 pounds more a night and find something really seemed three star as is posted on the front. But if you're on a budget, it's a good value.

    Confortable place

    from

    This place is for someone who is on a budget. The staff is extremely nice...and the rooms are large but average. Everything is spotless and the area is close to everything and in a quiet neighborhood. I recommend this place, would stay again..

    Watch Out For This One!

    from

    Just a warning about the Euro Hotel in Bloomsbury. We tried to stay there in March 2003 for 76 pounds a night. They gave us a room on the first floor that had no locks on the windows and a roof outside. Anyone with a 6 foot ladder could easily enter the room. We asked to be moved, but they told us they were full and that there was nothing they could do to secure the window. We checked out and stay at the Harlingford Hotel for 90 a night.The differences between the 76 pound Euro Hotel room and the 90 pound Harlingford Hotel were tremendous.I STRONGLY recommend if anyone is looking at either of the two hotels to pay the extra for the Harlingford. Be sure to ask for a third or top floor room though. The rooms are small, not sure about any A/C and no lift to the top floor, but it was perfect and secure for us.The staff at the Harlingford was very nice. Can't say anything good about the Euro Hotel though.

    A good value

    from

    Friendly staff, great breakfast, resonable rates (for London), close to tube stops and the British Museum. We enjoyed our stay at the Euro in 2002.

    Perfect for the busy tourist

    from

    Your reating of the Euro Hotel will probably largely depend on the kind of traveller you are. If you are looking for luxury, go somewhere else. But if you want to make sure you have a clean, comfortable place to rest after "touristing" for hours on end, it is perfect for you.

    The Euro Hotel provided good value for the money, especially if you count the full English breakfast, which was excellent: made to order, fast, with exceptinally friendly service.

    The location is good, but not for the extremely lazy. A 15-20 minute walk is required to get to most tourist destinations, but definately doable.

    The room was spotless - didn't find a single hair anywhere. The room itself left wishing for more, so if you plan to spend a considerable amount of time inside, it is probably not for you. There isn't much space to turn around, the "telly" only has four channels, and but for someone who plans to spend most of their time exploring the city and wants to return to clean and comfortable place, it is perfect.

    ... him. I am just devastated that I couldn't catch the moment on film with Oli looking on with glee. The highlight of the day for the boys was the trip there on the Docklands light rail where there are driverless trains and we got to sit right at the front of the train. Jesse's favourite other thing was some Macca's chips - yep we've come a long way for those.
    Oli and I had a trip out together to complete my brainwashing of him into becoming a 4th ...

    ... Huxley in there! Can't wait to go check out his papers around the corner tomorrow at Imperial College London. I have been in touch with the archivist there this week and she seems very helpful.
    All else is pretty good. Mom I'm planning on a double decker ride soon, I promise. It's got to stop raining, ugh! And hopefully I'll fit some other stuff in in the next couple of days ...

    It's been almost a week since our arrival in London, and we have been so busy being out and about since we arrived that this is my first blog entry, so apologies, but it’s going to be a long one!! We arrived at London Heathrow on Tuesday morning after maybe 3 hours sleep on the very old and uncomfortable British Airways flight (listen to us, we're whinging Poms already!!). At least we were forewarned and semi prepared for the bloody tube strike!! Mind you, probably better this ...

    ... down as people wouldn't have been able to find them underneath the feet.

    Finally we burst into the open and there is a drunken crowd of about 50 people clustered around the map. It is now 7:40 p.m. We can't even get close to the map and we can't remember which way to go so we just turn and walk down the street to try and get out of the crowd and find another map. Nope, not to be. Hubby pulls out his phone and speaks in the address and it points ...

    What am I doing?

    A travel blog entry by curious1 on Nov 21, 2013

    As is common for people in another country, I am questioning why I moved here. Living in London has not exactly been the BIG change I was looking for. I am searching for my "purpose" here. I will be looking for long-term positions I think, as I have now had enough time without being useful in a class. As much as subbing means that I do not have all the ...
