Stunning hotel and amazing staff
I just love this hotel. Fantastic staff and the best location, right at the top of Oxford Street and shopping. All the staff were just so nice and nothing was too much trouble. I will definitely stay there again.

Check the bed size with your booking!
After many stays in hotels around the world we were dumbfounded by the Bloomsbury's classification of a Queen bed. I had booked and pre paid in full for 3 nights several months ahead, accommodation in a Superior Queen room - ( we are in our 60's )to be presented with a reasonable enough room but with a double bed! My husband and I had never in many years of travel experienced a bed of this small size including length and expected to accept it. Check in staff were not accepting of our evaluation of the bed size but after consideration,allotted a room with a correct sized Queen bed the following day. This was inconvenient and also interrupted our plans for a few days in London. We are still unsure about the truth of this bed size. Management staff were helpful but checking staff not well trained in dealing with a guest problem like this. Yes, it is a lovely hotel but extraordinary to be in a situation when the room represented on the booking site is not what you have experienced in hotels of similar and lesser standard in London and many other cities around the world. There were some very helpful staff who we complemented, but it left a feeling of disappointment with the way we were treated at check in.

overly hotel for a stop over in London
We stayed one night on a trio to do a bit of shopping and see a show. I loved the hotel bar and its lounge was lovely and cosy. Our room was a little small and it faced inside. It was quiet but I am sure that there are better rooms. It didn't appear that the bottles of water were complimentary and that is my only niggle. Otherwise the room was very well appointed with all the facilities you could expect or need and the bed was very comfortable. And it was fabulously situated for shopping and for theatreland.
