Characterful, cultured and calm, the Radisson Blu Edwardian, Kenilworth is warmly inviting and quietly stylish in the heart of book savvy Bloomsbury. Light floods the airy lobby and laid-back bar through elegant arched windows, and a striking original art collection adds real individuality. Service is unfailingly friendly, and you're equally well-placed here for the City, the West End or Eurostar's St Pancras terminal Upgrade to Deluxe or Business Class Room and receive our daily Voucher for drinks that can be redeemed at the hotel bar to the value of 15 GBP per night.

This place is posh.

Right across the street from the British Museum, so it is pretty close to everything in London. Close to tube station if not. It is just a 15 or 20 minute walk to Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, etc. Its not cheap, but not bad for central London. I have no complaints at all.

Get a daily ticket or an Oyster card for the tube when you're in London. It will save you lots of money on subway fare.

Lovely location!

Though I was a bit surprised by the size of the room, seeming more like a lovely samall cabin on a cruise ship, the room had all the ameneties one might hope for. Coffee and tea. An ironing board and iron. Free wifi (though the signal was not so strong) And a deliciously prepared breakfast buffet. The staff was quite friendly and more than accomodating for a very late check out!

Great location but IT nightmare

Awesome Bloomsbury location that is just a block from the British Museum. Problem is that Satellite TV, Wi-Fi, and printer for boarding passes didn't function properly for two days! Planet Earth to IT maintenance...hello?

Small but central

Definitely enjoyed my stay. Service was great,, breakfast tasty, and location ideal. The bed was small and not extremely comfortable. I would definitely book a double even for one person next time.

Decent choice in Brussels

Good location, though does border a traffic'd road so i'd request room that does not border on Wolvengracht Street. Bed was average (not particularly plush, but comfortable), room had a slight odor, but with most hotels that is just a random thing rather than an overall issue with the hotel. Wifi was free and pretty good. I'd recommend, but not resoundingly.

Great location, nice staff

The staff were very responsive. The room was a bit small but normal for Europe in general I believe. The location was great. On a very cute walkable street. Would definitely stay there again. Near theaters and restaurants.

Excellent hotel!

This hotel was about two minutes away from the British Museum. Covent Garden is 10 minutes away. It was about 15 minutes in the theatres. So, location is great. The room was small, but comfortable. I received one with a shower, which was small. The breakfast was good which a lot to choose from, such as an english breakfast or cereal or toast or pastries. I enjoyed staying here and would recommend it to anyone.

Winter Getaway to London

The staff and location of this hotel were fantastic. They checked us in early the day of our arrival and were even able to offer a room upgrade at no cost. We were pleasantly surprised at the size of room. The bath was a little different, as we had a high walled tub with a shower head. It was a little tricky getting in out of the shower, what with the beautiful but slippery marble tile floors. It was a grand surprise to have a US 110V outlet in the room! What a bonus. The concierge staff was exceptional (ask for Michael!). We would highly recommend this hotel. Location was perfect for subway and bus transport.
