My wife and I had our honeymoon in UK and our rooms got upgraded, with the rooms nicely decorated with wine and chocolates prepared. We are amazed by the hospitality of the staff and would certainly recommend this place! Thank you to all staff from Thistle Bloomsbury Park Hotel!

Great Hotel, great location, great staff !”
hotel and staff were great. the location was perfect, we covered all the sites in central london on foot without needing the tube and the walk from the hotel into central london was very pleasant. 2 mins walk to the british museum and 10 mins walk to covent garden. on arrival we asked to change rooms to be on higher floor and staff accomodated with a smile. we arrived earlier than check in and left later than check out leaving cases in secure locked room with no problems. we are frequent visitors to london and highly reccomend the bloomsbury !
Fantastic accommodation ”
This was a great place, fantastic position to explore London. Starbucks next door, a Prita just up the road and a 5 min walk to the London Underground train network (the Tube). Buses and taxis are also easy to catch. The Thistle staff were very helpful and I enjoyed a sumptuous breakfast there, it was everything you could want. I would happily stay here again and highly recommend, Thank you. Richard/ Australia April 5, 2019
A well-informed staff to assist a first timer traveler that drives into London would be a good impression on the establishment including on vehicle drop-point (for luggage), parking and congestion fee (in London). I was circling the neighbourhood searching for a suitable parking and/or parking arrangement, with minimal information provided by the staff. Apart from that, the service by the Hotel is excellent.
Dear Mohd, Thank you for your review and feedback. I am sorry to hear that you had difficulty finding the local offsite car parking facilities but I am pleased that apart from this you found the services provided by us as a hotel to be excellent. We look forward to having the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Kind Regards, Jack
good hotel clean room and friendly staff”
the bloomsbury park hotel is ideal for a shopping trip to london.It is well located with easy access to public transport. Room was clean and staff were very friendly going the extra mile for customers. Breakfast was excellent.
Upon hearing that my wife and I were recently married, Salman 'Sam' offered us two glasses of complimentary champagne. All staff were friendly and professional throughout our stay and the young lady on duty during our check out on July 20th kindly offered to store our luggage while we enjoyed our last sunny afternoon in London. On behalf of my wife and I, I would like to thank all the staff at the Bloosmbury Park Hotel for a wonderful stay.
great stay and great location”
We arrived and booked in swiftly, room was small but neat and tidy. Only complaint was the noise factor from the street, double glazing would help. Location was superb, warm room , comfortable bed all my wife and i need as a base for exploring London.
Great location, near to theatre and shopping.”
Hotel was in a great location, we had a particularly large room which was clean, spacious and the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Would definitely visit again. The price was very reasonable also.
Had a birthday celebration in London, the room was lovely, the staff very welcoming and a very nice breakfast the next day which was much needed.

Very friendly & welcoming upon check in, but this is an old unloved hotel which thistle have put new curtains on. Room was unbearably hot upon arrival & even after turning the radiator down and opening the door to the cold en suite it didn’t get to a comfortable overnight temperature. Not up to the thistle brand and needs a thorough refurbishment to warrant over £150 a night

fabulous hotel couldnt fault it”
We were thrilled with this hotel.On arrival they offered us a king size bed which we took instead of 2 singles it was huge more like a super king. Also asked for a quiet part of hotel which was fab no noise from roads or from anyone else. We dint opt for breakfast as there were many places to eat out. We just had the 1 evening meal there which was fine, although we couldnt understand the waiter as he was unsure of himself as later he told us he only served at breakfast and because of shortage of staff they had asked him to help out. Overall we had a good time and would def go back there.
Very Nice and suited our needs”
We didn't have breakfast included in our stay (and therefore can't comment fairly below) but there are so many places out and about that offer good food. We like to eat out. We spend little time in the hotel when we visit London. It was good to have a hotel that didn't suffer from the noisy streets.
Nice simpel hotel, perfect for a little escape”
The hotel was small and intimate, perfect for our little escape to London. It was walking distance from the subway and the British Museum. Enough places to have breakfast since our booking came without breakfast included, but they also had a nice breakfast buffet at the hotel for a reseanoble price. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. Overall a good experience.
Great rooms lovely hotel location, a bit noisy”
clean everywhere, good serivice, good location, good beds and rooms. tiny elevator, no ramp for entering hotel. it had everything a good hotel should have. the location is good but a little bit of a walk to the tottenham court road station. it is on a busy road there were lots of sirens and road noises which did not make sleep easier, it didn't seem to have double glazed that's why. everything else was fine.
The hotel was in an excellent location whereby stores, restaurants, grocery shops were just outside the hotel entrance. We did not dine in the hotel because of that. everything was within walking distance. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room and the bathroom were clean, but the room was very small and the beds as well. We really liked our stay in the hotel but I believe its overpriced considering its a 3 star hotel and the very small room.
Decent hotel near Russell Square”
A slightly more than acceptable hotel - therefore well above average for London. Biggest downside was they charge for wifi. In the lobby I was able to access free wifi from a neighbouring establishment.
very good, only worry would be if it is warm in London, rooms have very little ventilation and window can only be opened slightly. No air con , just a fan, so avoid hotel if heat wave is due.
Nice hotel. Great breakfast. Walking distance to shows Covent garden and British Museum.”
Great french restaurant across to street and grocery store 2 blocks away. Good value for night in london. Would stay again.

Good location and reachable to all parts of London”
Great hotel, stayed 6-nights and lucky to get the side room (not on main street) so it is quiet (recommended). Location. Location. Location. That's all i can say.

That was a good accommodation for travelling ”
It has a good position because it nears the British museum, underground and it just takes 15 minutes by walk to China town. And the hotel is quite large and the staff are very friendly!
