Historical Traveller Reviews of myhotel Bloomsbury Hotel

Myhotel still worthy of a visit

from TheMcs
Stayed on 15th November 2004, paid 186 sterling B+B and this is the first time back here in 2004. Stayed lots here between 2000-2003 and it's still as good as ever. It's a small hotel and if you are staying alone do not book a single room as they are miniscule. Always stay in a double and try and get breakfast included (try lastminute). If not do as I've previously done and grab some fruit and water and coffee from the library before going to meetings. The sevice is the same now as in 2000, although not the best, the staff do try and help and the atmosphere of the place is more relaxed than other big London hotels, feels more like a home. The rooms overlooking the street may be noisy, but they have the best WiFi reception which is a must when travelling........nothing wakes me after a few beers even if they are pricey.........at least it means the clientele are right. The new LCD TV's in each room are good too. My favourite bits then....the relaxing basement Library area with free drinks and the comfy beds........ One of my top 5 favourite hotels in London and I've stayed in hundreds.....will be coming back....if it's not fullly booked and the price is less than 200.

how much would double glazing cost ?

from traffert
the hotel is well designed and the staff were exceptionally helpful.... but it's right next to one of the busiest roads in london and the windows (at least in my room) were old fashioned wooden 'dual' windows, which only just kept the noise at acceptable levels. i only stayed one night and that would be enough

plus, hilarously, the wifi connection in my room worked fine... if i sat right next to the room's door.... move 2 metres away and the signal is lost

Myhotel tries but fails

from Keng073
This is a nice hotel, but overpriced for its creature comforts. The single room provided was smaller than any dorm room you might find. Environment is modern sterile, though they claim fung shiu influence. You get a flat screen tv, desk and no closet. Don't toss in the bed or you are on the floor. Bath has a tub, fine toiletries. They charge an extra 14 pounds for breakfast that should be included in the room cost. They also charge for phone. Drink at the bar is 7.50 pound minimum. Hotel has library with free internet, coffee and snacks and minimal fitness center in the basement. Eat the snacks for breakfast rather than pay at the restaurant. I was not impressed.

Disappointing despite effort

from samsonite
I travel to London several times a year, often trying out a new hotel each time. Great location and very helpful staff aside, the hotel was disappointing. The walls of my top floor room were paper thin (avoid rooms with adjoining doors)and amenities were battered (bath towels had frayed ends, bathrobe had a hole in it). Ventilation in the bathroom is nonexistent, so be prepared for steaming up your room.

Design and lighting is clean, beds and other furnishings are comfortable, and there is plenty of closet/cupboard space.

Hotel bar/restaurant was not bad, as was room service. However, overall experience and efficiency of the staff is lacking (had to explain ingredients for a mimosa three times to a waitperson; received a call inquiring if I had seen another guest's missing laundry, etc.)

The lobby is tiny and often bustling, so this is not the place to quietly sneak in and out of - especially when the elevator is extremely slow.

Thoroughly enjoy staying at My Hotel

We found all the staff exceptionally helpful & friendly. They are clearly
the hotel's greatest asset! We were made to feel welcome in what has become
our 'home from home'

honeymoon in London

from A TripAdvisor Member
We spend our honeymoon in London. My Hotel Bloomsbury was a pretty hotel near the important sightseeing and shopping areas. There are nice restrooms, gym and a library with internet access. Our room was big enough and very comfortable. We loved the private athmosphere. Next time in London we will stay in the same place.

Made our honeymoon special

from A TripAdvisor Member
We received a warm welcome and a lovely room was allocated! The hotel location is great for shopping and for being at the heart of things.....

Oye! Not where you want to stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
I went with an open mind to this Hotel, having stayed at Various "W" hotels, and loving them. I took a chance. The positive aspects of this hotel for me was the location. Very near the trendy Charlotte Street, where I spent my evenings. My friends stayed at the Charlotte Street Hotel- where if you have the $$- you SHOULD stay there. The My Hotel had 2 very friendly and helpful people on staff out of like 20. Most didn't understand English. My room was SO small that I could not do my Pilates/Yoga mat work. literaly, my mat was too big for the floor. I tried to have an open mind. They do use Aveda products. But the room size was a serious hassle. For $300 a night US. Not even close to worth it. No one could help with the "Wi-Fi" hook up with the lap top, so if you need to be on line, come Wi-Fi savy. Sad really, because the location was great.

Great Place to Stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at MyHotel last year and found it be one of the best standard of hotels throughout Europe.The rooms are desgined for ulitmate comfort and fairly well priced for this prime location.All of all though the thing that stands out the most is the guest service provided. Everyone from the housekeeping staff through to front desk staff looked after are every need.Would I recommend this hotel to people whitout a doubt.

Disappointing

from A TripAdvisor Member
I was very disappointed with this Hotel, This was to be a treat for my daughter who had been seriously ill in hospital for four months, and a break for the family.On arrival the hotel looked very nice, but no smiles from the reception desk Im afraid. We were quickly booked in and given our rooms which had been pre-booked for us by the Starlight Foundation which grant seriously ill children a 'wish'. I went to the hotel with my three daughters, and two of them were given a room one floor below us room 311, and my other daughter and I were given 402. Not much of a weekend break when you have to go between floors in order to arrange outings with each other.
On the first evening I told the reception that our bathroom window did not close properly and the bathroom was very cold, we were told that someone would tend to this, but on return from our evening out to dinner nothing had been done about it, and nobody got back to tell us if they had even tried to close it. The following evening at around 8pm my daughters recieved a call from the reception asking if someone could come up to the room and change the bedding as it had to be done daily before 9pm, we had been out all day and my daughters had not realised that the 'do not disturb' sign had been left on the door, so the bedding could not be changed, we were at this time all trying to get ready for an evening out which resulted in everyone moaning at each other......stress free I dont think so. Im sure the bedding could have waited one more day. Oh and one more thing....make sure you have plenty of cash or your credit card if you want to drink in the bar, I know it was a four star hotel but prices were very high.
Nine pounds ninety four pence to be exact for one Whisky and Diet Coke, & A glass of Diet Coke.
Sorry but this Hotel wasnt what we expected But London was great!!!

Top Local Tips for London

The Providores, Marylebone High St Tapas restaurant that also does the most amazing breakfast. It's not cheap, but it's worth it for the mouth-watering food. Crispy bacon, big mushrooms, organic produce, bustly and busy. We always grab the window seats shared booths so we can watch the world go by. Get there early though as there is always queues which you don't need on the weekend.

Much to eat! Just around the corner is Oxford Street and there are a couple of places serving snacks which you can either sit and eat there (limited seating) or takeaway. Prior to Oxford Street (near the corner) is a boots store (if you want a quick drink or snack) or there are a couple of well known fast food joints (if you like that kind of thing). You can walk to most places in central London. I can recommend at night that you go to either 'Flame' or 'FuLuShou' at Casino at the Empire, Leicester Square - a full night out whether you like to gamble or just like really top quality food - remember to take some form of ID with your photo on it and be prepared to fill in a form at the entrance if you haven't been to the casino before.
