No surprises

I was looking for an inexpensive room close to King's Cross and this fit the bill. My room was reasonably clean, and my room was away from the street so it was very quiet. The room was quite small - to get to the right side of the bed, where there was a night stand that included the coffee/tea service I had to climb on the bed (not enough room at the foot of the bed to walk around). But again, I wasn't looking for luxury. My only "complaint" is that the "do not disturb" sign seems to mean something different to their cleaning staff than I meant. On two occasions, they rang my room via their cell phone, while standing right outside my door, once to see if I wanted my room to be cleaned and once to bring clean towels. I know there were intending to be helpful, but "do not disturb" should be pretty clear that the guest doesn't, you know, want to be disturbed.

Not a 4 star experience

Wi fi internet was free. But u have to use it in the main lobby. It reached my room only for one night out of the four nite stay. Shower water is either too hot or too cold. Never will stay there again. However the location was good. But with the tube location is irrelevant.

great location, comfortable room

I was allowed to check in extremely early, which was wonderful as I had just taken a really long flight. Although I had paid for a single the room had 2 beds which was also great. I enjoyed the kettle and coffee provided by the room. There is also a little fitness facility downstairs which was clean if sparse. Everyone was very nice. The location was really convenient, a few minutes away from Euston, and it was a good value.

very good location, relatively small room

the location is excellent, right in the city center, close to tube station and St Pancras train station. the room with a double bed is quite small though. considering the location, pricing is reasonable.

Functional Business Room

The hotel was very functional, good location, solid staff, great breakfast value. The rooms were SMALL but is good for a quick trip to London as that was the only reason for me giving it 3 stars versus 4.

Good hotel, great location.

I would definitely choose this hotel again. Free WiFi in rooms (though, a bit unreliable at times). Just steps from UCL & Univ. of London. Only a few blocks from Russell Square tube station. 'Nuf said!

Visiting London

The main thing to remember about this hotel is not to judge it by American standards. The room are not large, closets are small and there are no radios. It is truly a European hotel and by European standards, it's a good hotel to stay in during your visit to London. The Ambassadors Bloomsbury Hotel is in an excellent location and easily accessible to the tube. It is within walking distance to the Euston Station but also close to the Russell Square Station which is on the Piccadilly Line. I took the Piccadilly line from Heathrow airport to the hotel. It was about a 45 minute ride and it cost me only four pounds. You can get breakfast at the Euston station at a very reasonable cost. Cafes are outside as well as inside. The lobby had a friendly warm atomsphere with lots of color and there was always a large fruitbowl of apples for the taking. The rooms are OK but small and there is a safe in the room for your valuables at no extra charge. There is an iron and board kept in the hallway but not in each individual room. However, guest need to bring their own face/wash cloths because the hotel does not supply them. Other things you might want to bring are a few extra hangers and a clock. I found the hotel personnel to be very helpful, professional with very nice warm personilities. One last thing, There are some very lovey parks across the street from the hotel which were nice to visit.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Learn to travel by the tube. Maps are supplied at each station and there are attendants to get travel advise from. It is easy and inexpensive and the best and most logical way to get around London. Most of the sights are within walking distance of a tube station.Ask about purchasing a travel card. Please do not forget that Londoners drive opposite of the way we drive here in the U.S. so be very careful when crossing the streets. Remember to look both ways.
