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!
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.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
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.
