We recently stayed at the Grange Buckingham hotel in London. We stayed 8 nights. The first night was in a superior double room which was nice except we preferred a king sized bed so we did upgrade to the executive studio room. It was very cmfortable. Each room is equipped with a nice kitchenette which was wonderful especially for a longer visit like our trip. The hotel provides a continental breakfast which was included in our price and the breakfast buffet was simply great--everything from toast, pastries, cereal, juice, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, fruit, cheese, vegetables and more. We ate our fill every morning which got our day off to a really hearty start. This hotel is close to 2 tube stations (Russell Sqare and Holborn) so it's very convenient to get o the tube. We used the Oyster card system for the tube which was easy. This hotel is also minutes away from the British Museum. Their staff was always helpful, polite and cheerful as they are also responsible for opening the main hotel door each time you return from an outing (ring the buzzer outside). The only negative comment I have is that their rooms are not air conditioned and we had several days of unusual hot weather -- each room has a fan but that truly did not provide enough relief from the heat (we were on the 3rd floor which is the top floor). I would happily stay again except not when it is hot.
Fab time was upgraded to a suite made our anniversary very special. Only disappointment was my Baileys, although a full measure glass was so big it seemed only a drop inside. Something very small to moan about, maybe as I’m greedy but loved loved loved our stay. Thank you. X
What a great place. It’s like a townhouse that’s been converted, so quite a contrast to more modern hotels, but everything was fresh and clean - and my friend and I both had lovely large bedrooms. Very helpful staff on reception and in the breakfast area too. My room was at the back and had “real” windows that opened out onto a wide leafy courtyard. With birdsong, the lot! The bathroom had a large window too - just SO pleasant ... the sun was shining in as I ready to go out in the evening. I loved the coffee table area ... and the how the fridge and tea-making facilities (including a kitchen sink!) were tastefully hidden behind doors. My colleague’s room faced the front and had a small balcony - she said it was a bit noisy at night - so I’d recommend asking to be at the back). Enjoyed our breakfast too - again, a lovely room to be in.
A lovely quaint hotel with a very ‘home-like’ feel. The staff and service was excellent and breakfast was just what was needed. It was certainly quiet and extremely well located. Only thing I would say is in our suite (202) there was a slight smell of vomit from the sofa which had been cleaned and was by no means overwhelming (only noticed if you were sat on it).
We only booked on the day, and we're dry pleased to be given 2 very spacious rooms next to each other. Sofa and armchairs good for spending time in each other's rooms. Staff very helpful, all very clean, comfortable bed, good night's sleep. Very quiet, amazing location in central London.
We have stayed in a number of these small hotels in London and this is one of the nicest for the price. The room is relatively large and has a nice kitchenette. The location is very good -- easily accessible by tube. We had the continental breakfast -- we could have upgraded to a full English cooked breakfast for an extra fee, but don't want that much breakfast. The only issue we had was that our room had a tea kettle, milk and biscuits, but no tea bags. When we asked at the front desk they said that we could call room service if we wanted tea. But we didn't want to pay for room service, we just wanted to make tea in our room. So we walked to the corner and bought a box of tea bags.
No where is cheap in the capital unless you want dirty small and or dangerous. The Buckingham is none of those. Really spacious rooms, very clean and it's clear they are trying to live up to their self acclaimed 4 stars. Nice professional greeting on arrival and flexible about getting a quiet room. It's an old converted house that is aiming for the boutique end of the market. Well appointed rooms with a king size bed and a Sep shower to the bath. Bathroom well appointed and clean. Bedding was comfortable and even though I like a cool room I was nervous about the thinness of the duvet; it was spot on though. Bed was a trifle hard though. Breakfast is a strange affair though. It's a help your self continental affair with no cooked option so a star deducted for that. You can't be a 4 star and not offer a full English in my view. Also slightly irritated by the mother's pride type bread provided for toast. Bit cheap guys. Rest of the breakfast was good though. Def an option for staying again for me.
My family was “upgraded” from the Grange Portland to the Buckingham just down the street. Having not seen the rooms, I am not sure if it was an upgrade or not. For a stay during the winter, the hotel is fine – but I do not recommend it for the summer as there is no air conditioning! The location in Bloomsbury is ideal for sightseeing. The street is so quiet during the day but we were awakened each of 3 nights by drunken people making a lot of noise at around 2am. The front desk staff was all just wonderful to encounter and helped us to research a few things. The on-site continental breakfast was very good, with a nice selection. Importantly, the breakfast staff was excellent – present but not overbearing. The rooms were very large with a small “kitchenette.” There is a fridge, microwave and tea making area.
We're not tourist, just needed a place for one night so we didn't have to commute an hour back home at the end of a planned evening in town. Chose the Buckingham because of reviews and location as we made dinner reservations at a nearby restaurant. LOCATION: Quiet neighborhood, short distance from plenty of pubs, restaurants, and attractions. Short equal-distance from Chancery Lane/Totenham Court Road tube stations, and easily walk-able from Euston Square & Kings Cross. SERVICE: Check-in is not until 1500, but we arrived early to drop our luggage off instead of dragging it around town. By chance, our room happened to be ready so we checked-in. We got room 103, which was situated at the back of the hotel. Not much of a view, but it was nice and quiet. ROOM: Huge spacious room with an ensuite tub/shower. Also had a small wet area that consisted of a sink, microwave, and small fridge. Closet also had an electronic safe. There's a TV and Wi-Fi available, but were not used. BREAKFAST: If you don't order an english breakfast, they have a decent continental spread with cereals, rolls, fruits, meats/cheese, etc. We did order the full breakfast, which was cooked to order. Nothing spectacular, it was as expected. CONCLUSION: We were amazed at how quiet and peaceful our room location was. There had to have been neighbors because they were fully booked that Friday night, but we did not hear them. Definitely a place to return to the next time we decide to spend a night in the city.
One night stay at this lovely hotel. Friendly staff on reception made check-in easy. Stayed in room 1, ground floor, facing reception - very large double room which was very clean. Comfy bed. Room is situated at front of building so a lot of noise from the street throughout the night - room would benefit from double glazing to reduce noise. Breakfast is served in small garden room at the back. All staff very polite.
