Overview

We're very choosy about our Thistle Associate Hotels, and Bloomsbury Park, London is a perfect example. An elegant Edwardian hotel, Bloomsbury Park embodies all the values we hold dear at Thistle -excellent location and facilities, great service and a warm, welcoming atmosphere - and consistently achieves the high standards we set for ourselves. Within walking distance of the British Museum and Covent Garden - and, incidentally, our own Kingsley - Bloomsbury Park blends effortlessly into this elegant and historic part of west London. Inside, though, there's a thoroughly contemporary look and feel to the 95 bedrooms, fully-equipped meeting room, seating 35 theatre-style, and the recently-opened Cellar Bar. A place where our most discerning guests can feel immediately at home. Bloomsbury Park is a non-smoking hotel.

Dining

Bloomsbury Kitchen
The Bloomsbury Kitchen is a modern stylish brasserie. Walnut floors, high ceilings and original cornicing help to retain its physical characteristics, whilst the oversized deep red lamp shades, the crushed gold velour chairs and the original canvas art work give the restaurant a modern and contemporary theme. The large windows allow light to flood in as you sit back to watch the world go by. Breakfast is buzzy and vibrant with a full buffet selection to choose from, where as dinner is more relaxed and unhurried with low lighting, candles and full table service for food and drinks. Enjoy anything from a light snack to a three course meal - the choice is yours. Serving dinner from 5.30pm it's the ideal choice for a pre-theatre meal.
Bloomsbury Bar
The Bloomsbury Bar sits adjacent to the Bloomsbury Kitchen. Walnut floors, high ceilings and original cornicing help to retain its physical characteristics, whilst the oversized deep red lamp shades, the crushed gold velour chairs and the original canvas art work give the bar a modern and contemporary theme. The large windows allow light to flood in or hide away in our private booth as you sit back to watch the world go by. Open daily from 5pm, serving a wide selection of hot and cold beverages and snacks - it's the perfect place to unwind with a glass of wine and the daily newspaper following a hard day in the office or exploring the city.

Meeting facilities

Good base for City break

Would recommend Tue, Oct 27, 2015
I booked this hotel for a 4 night city break holiday based on location & price. Location is ideal - only a couple of blocks from Holborn tube station & with a couple of nice pubs in a small sidestreet. Value was very good - comfortable well kept room. Not too many amenities at the property, but I knew this before booking. Staff efficient at checkin & checkout

Hotel is in a great location, close to all public transport, Holborn station and Russell Square short walk from hotel making it very easy to access all parts of London day/night. The hotel was an excellent base. Bloomsbury itself is a good area with plenty of cafes, restaurents, pubs, shops. The hotel room was quite small but to be expected in London City. Good value for money as the price of stay was very reasonable.

Good value/choice in central London

Would recommend Mon, Jan 19, 2015
My second stay at the Bloomsbury Park - Thistle. A small, well-kept hotel with comfortable rooms and good service. Location is excellent for moving about central London. It offers easy access to the Underground, buses, and train stations, and convenient access to Heathrow via the Piccadilly Line from Holborn station. My room rate included breakfast which is consistently well-prepared. I will stay there again on my next trip to London.

Meh

Would not recommend Tue, Sep 23, 2014
The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. However, the room was quite small, the bathroom was ridiculously small, and the shower was laughably small. I'm a petite female, and I barely had enough room to shampoo my hair. I had to open the bathroom door just to towel off. Speaking of towels, the day we arrived, we had one nice, fluffy towel and one old, thin towel. After housekeeping the next day, we had two old, thin towels. That's not cool, Thistle. The location was decent. It's reasonable close to both Russell Square and Holborn Underground stops. However, the neighborhood seemed kind of dirty, and it was noisy. We couldn't leave our window open at night because the noise from traffic and the stupid crosswalk sign were intolerable. I realize London hotel rooms are generally pricey and small, but this room was definitely not worth what we paid for it.

Good down to earth hotel

Would recommend Fri, Sep 19, 2014
The hotel is ideally situated in Central London. Nice clean room and shower which included the little things necessary for your stay such as hairdryer, fan and ironing board with iron. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful always carrying out their duties with a smile especially Sam and Mo. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Great location

Would recommend Mon, Jun 30, 2014
This hotel is perfect for soho, covent garden etc. tube station a few minites away but also within walking distance. . It is on a busy road but my room was at the back and I didn't hear the traffic. Unfortunately our stay was tarnished slightly as our room had been given to someone else. We ended up having to have 2 single rooms which were very small and on the 4th floor with no lift access. It was lucky we don't have any mobility issues! I'm not sure why this occurred as I'd paid for my reservation 3 months ago so expected to get the room I'd paid for. We were offered complimentary breakfast and a bottle of wine, but the staff weren't very apologetic. Other than this, I think this hotel is good value, if you can get a deal, considering its location. Breakfast was very good. If you have mobility issues, make sure you put this on your reservation, as part of the building only has stairs. They just need to sort out their reservation system!

Its a hard life

Would not recommend Sat, Feb 22, 2014
A lovely hotel with very friendly, helpful staff. The position, just a short walk from the British Museum and on a direct bus route to Waterloo was good for us. However the beds were the hardest that we have ever come across and as a result sleeping was not easy

Stayed here for a night after having laser eye surgery. Asked for a quiet room as I needed to go and relax for a few hours after the surgery. The staff were really helpful, we got a very quiet room which was just what I needed. Food available at really good prices too. Would definitely recommend.
