Amazing location

This hotel is in a perfect location -- safe neighborhood near the tube and National Rail. Plenty of nearby food options too. Room was small, bathroom especially so (even by London standards). But it was clean. Staff was very friendly.

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.

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.

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.

Watch for room switch

Tho I had reserved a month before when I got there I got some story and was put into a tiny windowless room with an immense wheelchair bathroom (and broken wifi). Staff very nice and changed my room, but why did they give me such a horrible room in the first place?

Location location

The hotel is comfortable but could use some better seating in the rooms, which are quite small. The wireless worked well in our room as well as in the lounge. The food is good, a little pricey. It is walking distance from the British museum, and Euston station and there is a bus stop practically outside the hotel. There is a tiny street with interesting shops just beside the hotel and we were told it is used for movie sets frequently. the staff in the restaurant were great. We went in for a place to visit with old friends and were there for three hours without being bothered..

Accomodating staff in a perfect location

I selected this hotel mostly because it's a 3 minute walk to Euston station. We stayed 2 times for 2 nights each in a Deluxe King room, which although average in size (for London) and lacking a good place to store luggage, was kept impeccably clean by housekeeping. Bed was very comfortable. We loved the robes and towel warmer too but the best part was the desk staff, who kindly agreed to hold one of our large bags at no charge for 5 days while we were off touring in Scotland. Upon our return, we were very happy to check into the same room that we had left 5 days earlier. Be sure to request a room on the quiet side (back) of the hotel. We did not try the hotel breakfast, as it seemed bit pricey and there are many other options in the neighborhood. I'd be very happy to stay here again, especially for the convenience and kindness of the hotel staff.
