Bloomsbury guest house description

Whenever most people think of travelling their first thought in accommodation is to go and look for a hotel room. A smart traveller like yourself realises that paying outrageous amounts of money for a ROOM (and many times rooms if you are travelling with your family and friend) is not a smart use of your money when you can get an ENTIRE APARTMENT for the same price or even less and have all the comfort, space and convenience instead. Ah! Let's not forget the overpriced breakfasts at that a hotel charges and you probably don't even eat it all!

A spacious open-planned kitchen and living room welcomes you with panoramic windows flooding it with natural light. The master bedroom has a king size bed and en-suite bathroom facilities. The second bedroom has a double bed and is served by a family bathroom on the same corridor.

Located in a private building on a quiet residential street, this high-standards apartment is built with all modern luxury living comforts including fully equipped kitchen and living facilities, boutique amenities and Egyptian cotton bed sheets and towels.

The apartment is close to all major transport links including four tube stations within close walking distance (5 – 10 minutes), various bus stops at the end of the street travelling to all ends of the city and only 10 minutes away from the international train station King's Cross St. Pancras, as well as from Waterloo, Farringdon and Charring Cross stations.

Back to that talk about hotels: we offer a weekly housekeeping service, concierge, airport transfers and LOCAL recommendations to bars and restaurants so you no longer need to restrain yourself to a single building and do the same thing everyday of your stay but you can still count on all the service of a top hotel!

We provide a bespoke service to all our guests so please get in touch and allow us to tailor-make your stay to cover all your wishes when coming to London.

We offer a friendly atmosphere with all the prestige of a top address in London and boutique amenities. If you compare the value/money from a boutique, four or five star hotel in London you will see that you are much better installed staying with us! It is true that we don't have in-house spas, restaurants, gyms and bars... but you do have all of those within less than 5 minutes walk from your doorstep! And if you want to use the above facilities of any iconic hotel in London, why restrain yourself to only one of them when you can stay in your own apartment and enjoy them all? We are a family business dedicated and genuinely passionate about about welcoming you to our city. With extensive experience in 5* star and boutique hotels prior to start or business it would be an honour to have the opportunity to host you in London...moreless
