Historical Traveler Reviews myhotel Bloomsbury London
Was treated like a princess!!!
I stayed in myhotel Bloomsbury for a weekend trip with my boyfriend. From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were treated like royalty. All the staff were naturally friendly and made us feel like we were the most important people booking into the hotel.
There seemed to be an ease with which everything was done and nothing was made seem like a hassle. As Roman Catholics we were both interested in the closest church for Sunday service and the staff were more than willing to provide all the options for us and to give us a wake up call to ensure we made it!
The breakfast was just delicious and substantial and had many options to suit the both of us. We particularly enjoyed the range of smoothies and cheeses!
The setting of the hotel was just exquisite and the internal decor so modern and spotless. The library was most relaxing and allowed us to read upo on all the popular sites in London over a well needed cup of tea!
We both had booked in for massages within the hotel on the Saturday, which we both agree were devine and set us up nicely for the tough day ahead. The lady was very friendly and calming and the whole experience was thoroughly enjoyable.
I will finish by saying a huge thank you to the staff and management of myhotel Bloomsbury for their hard work and mannerisms. We both had an excellent time and will definitely be returning to London to stay nowhere else but the myhotel Bloomsbury.
Hip & minimailist
I have pretty high standards about hotels....Can't stand looking at fussy curtains, patterened carpeting, Poly bedspreads, heavy faux "antique" furniture...These rooms are clean & minimal, Ikea-esque in a good way. Aveda bath stuff, coffemaker, fresh smelling down comforters.....Small, absolutely...but like NYC, that's London in this medium price-range. Adequate gym, on-site facial/massage service, and great location near Soho/covent gardens & a major subway line.
Great bar and lounge, bit noisy and very small rooms
I go to London twice a year for the past 16 years. My most recent stay was in the Myhotel. I usually travel by car. There is a large public car park nearby (20 pounds a day). The bar is great and the lounge/library in the basement is very relaxing and quiet. Nice sushi restaurant next door. The first room we checked in to was very small.
The smallest I've stayed in in London. Couldn't close the bathroom door whilst seated on the toilet. OUCH! And there was a lot of noise from the upstairs rooms and hallway. Why do all hotels have a 10 inch gap below the hallway door? I requested a room on the top floor. Much more quiet but just as small. If you like peace and quiet get a top floor room at the back of the hotel. Lousy view, but the front view isnt much better. Great locvation though.
Whatta place, I cannot recommend highly enough and I rarely get on my soapbox about things like this.Service is top notch, the place warm and cozy, rooms can be small, but the bed was comfy and the bathroom plenty large. Did not have the water pressure problem aforementioned in the least.While there are many wonderful places to stay in London I would return here hands down. My wallet fell out of my purse in my room as I prepared to check out. They called me right after I left to let me know I had left it behind and should they put it in a cab for me to the train station I was headed to.... pretty amazing service. Aesthetically pleasing, not stodgy, be forewarned however, if you are allergic to scents, etc., could be tough, they always have lovely scented candles burning throughout the hotel, which I loved, never that "hotel smell" and killed any cigarette smoke that wafts in from the bar area. Check it out!
Loved Myhotel Bloomsbury
We stayed in this beautiful Hotel and had a fab time. With it's location to Soho and Covent Garden, we were in the middle of it all. The Hotel service is savvy, the Bar has a private Club feel and the associates treat you like you are their special VIP. I have not stayed in any better Hotel in London ever.By the way if you are a Internet buff, check out the libary, Internet service is free !!!Enjoy your next travel to London and stay at the Myhotel Bloomsbury, you won't regret it.Dirk from Orlando
The "W" of London
This is a very stylish hotel and the service is impeccable and very friendly. The top notch service is evident the minute you walk into hotel -- they grab your bags, offer you a drink and explain the layout of the hotel (including the 24 hour library with free internet access).
You then arrive in your room and you find apples, bottled water, coffee and fortune cookies, not to mention your choice of music (preselected before you visit) already playing. The rooms are on the smaller side, but the beds so comfortable. Nice wood floors (partially carpeted) and furniture and nice lighting. In the morning, there is also a complimentary breakfast featuring croissants & pastries, yogurt, oatmeal, fruit, cheeses, meats and juice. My only complaint is the terribly low water pressure in the shower. I might have asked for another room, but with so much else to like I overlooked this issue. I also have to say that the location of the hotel is fantastic. Only a few minute walk to the tube and Oxford St. And a short distance from so many London attractions. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Home is where the heart is. i lost it at the bloomsbury.
its in the eye of the storm, right where things are, but once you enter the hotel you feel all at home, you are treated more like a friend rather than a guest. I loved sitting in the reading like in a english private club. and i really loved the way everything was set up in the comfortable rooms, there not even a problem to get onto the internet with my laptop. i sometimes wish home was like this. cheers everyone for letting me enjoy my stay.
Trendy bloomsbury, trendy myhotel
If you are the young, hip, and fun lot you should definately stay at myhotel bloomsbury! It has been one of the best hotels i have ever stayed in, and i have stayed in quite a few hotels. First of all the hotel is chic with a very zen like feel to it, yet it is also warm. Hotel rooms are small but come on this is london, simple cool design and a ton of ameneties make you overlook all that. The hotel has this very cool basement where they have a small gym if you want to maintain those abs, i honestly dont even know why hotels have gyms, i mean come on, people are generally on vacation the last thing they want to do is exercise, then again i might be wrong! They also have a cool library which is damn quiet so if you want to get away from the hustle of london you can go there, you could even meditate its so quiet. Like sushi? They have a very trendy Yo Sushi cafe right next to reception room as well as a bar. This hotels is right in the middle of everything, very close to Regents park, right of Oxford Circus in case you want to stop of at Virgin Megastore to buy whatever tickles your fancy, and about a block away from the tube. So why would you stay anywhere else?
This place was lame. If you want an idea of how it is, go to their website. Neat and slick, nice to look at and does a lot of cool things but try to get any pertinant information off it and you get frustrated and leave. This hotel tries to look so cool and hip (It succeeds in that) but fails miserably in delivering the goods. Granted, Im not expecting the Ritz Carlton but a little attention to service would be nice. I arrived to find my reservation nowhere to be found. After 10 minutes of phone calls, they did find it but now they said I reserved 2 rooms not one and the price was more expensive then what was agreed to. The woman at the desk was actually getting irritated with me, as if it was my fault these things are happening. Well, they gave me my key and I take the elevator to my room. The button to my floor doesnt work. All the others light up when I push them but not the one to my floor. Ive got to go to the one above it and take the stairs down. Finally I get to my room and its beautiful. Great bed, beautiful decor, Lovely. but thats it. One giant rip in the carpet has tried to have been replaced with another piece of carpet and rather small and cheap furniture. After trying to figure out the Chinese water torture shower contraption I decide to take a bath. They have a 24 hour bar next to the lobby which has a great feel to it, and really comfortable ( My favorite part of the hotel) but when i was there the bartender didnt know how to make any mixed drinks. Thats the frustrating thing about this place, it seems like the hotel was made AND OPERATED by a designer and not some one with any hotel experience. When I went to bed I realized I was on the one side of the hotel that is on the main street which police car sirens seem to go by every hour on the hour. Then I was treated to the emergency alarm in the hotel at 7AM for about 1 minute. Nice. In the morning I asked for another room and was begrudgingly obliged by the same Happy faced (sarcasm) woman who checked me in. 35 for 2 breakfasts after it was supposed to be included. I couldnt get any reciepts for my bills because their printer was not working as well as their credit card machine (They told me I would be mailed everything) Again I wasnt expecting the Ritz, but for $400+ a night I felt ripped off and duped.
Not worth the money
It was okay... just that. It was not worth the £250 we paid- you can find a much nicer hotel for that price.

... for some great sushi then off to the airport. Our flight was a few hours delayed so we had plenty of time to explore around and played some cards before boarding our flight. Finally we got to board our flight and it was off to London. Sarah was really excited that it was finally happening and it started to really hit that the next time we touched ground it would be in London. The flight was pretty uneventful which is probably ...
... us. We then decided to bite the bullet and head to Wimbledon and what an experience that was!! 'The Queue' and what a queue it was. Arrived at 3.15 pm and got through the the gate at 6.45 pm. Is that dedication or stupidity we are still not sure BUT it was worth it even though the time at the tennis was less than the time in the queue!!! It can now be ticked off our bucket list. We made some queue buddies and the queue ...
So after a long couple of hours to London Heathrow airport, I finally met up with Oli. This was the first time our parents had met in the two years we have been together but after a few drinks everything seemed to be going well! We dropped our bags off at check in and then had a very emotional good bye to the family. We had been planning this trip for over a year so our excitement quickly settled in as we went through to departures preparing for the 14 hour flight ...
... changeover. Raced to gate (miles away in this huge airport!) only to find a last minute gate change - and then even a bus ride to the plane. Glad it wasn't raining - 15 min ride! Sank gratefully into seats, started reading "Midwife of Venice" - FAB book and next thing we knew we had our bags, Heathrow express to Paddington, hopped a Black Cab and we were at The Strand...and snoozing. AND Then!! The absolute best musical comedy we have seen in some ...
