You can expect a warm welcome at the family-run Arran House Hotel in quiet Bloomsbury. The hotel is located in a 200-year-old Georgian townhouse opposite the University of London, and just down the road from the British Museum. 3 Tube stations are a 5-minute walk away.
The compact guestrooms offer great value, as they come with free WiFi and a free full English breakfast. Guests also enjoy the lovely rose garden in summer.
Guestrooms are spotlessly clean, and most have en-suite bathrooms. You can use a communal fridge to keep your drinks and snacks cool, and there's a TV in the shared lounge where you can mingle with other guests.
Coffee and tea makers are standard in the rooms, and those overlooking the street have soundproof windows.
You can walk south to Covent Garden in about 15 minutes to find a multitude of restaurants, theaters, and cinemas. Chinatown is also within easy walking distance.
