Mercure London Bloomsbury, London
Convenient & Charming Hotel
Love this hotel! Located just a 10 minute walk from the British Museum. The on/off sightseeing bus stops right in front of the hotel. I will say that next time I book there I will ask for a queen bed. The double was a bit smaller than expected by US standards. Great breakfast, we had it included and I would certainly recommend. The staff is very accommodating and professional, we found them to be more than helpful. They arranged transport to the airport which was 60 pounds, half that of a taxi. The area is full of great restaurants to enjoy and the theater district is about a 25 minute walk. We consider ourselves fortunate to have chosen this hotel and will be back again.

Decent location, friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms. VERY HOT and quite small.

Be prepared for the unexpected.
They did not notify the customers of maintenance that possibly could have affected water pressure. As a result, I found myself standing with a half shaved face and uncleansed body in the shower when the water was shut off. Furthermore, the staff became irate as I expressed my discontent that they weren’t doing enough to accommodate my inconvenience. Thankfully, a quick call to helped dispel my unclean displeasure as I was reimbursed a whole nights rate, as opposed to the 50% which was the most the hotel was willing to offer.

Ok, but too small for price
Good location, two blocks from subway and right on Russell Square. Check in fine. Staff helpful and nice. But the room is just too small. Twin beds configured in an odd perpendicular pattern because they wouldn't fit if they were parallel to one another. Just too small for comfort and price! Even though London is pricey, this should be outside normal tourist route enough to get a better rate.

My stay in London
My stay was great. Service was great. Front desk was very helpful. Only complaint is that the air conditioner was not worked properly. At times it was warm in the room. Only thing wrong with the room. Wow le stay here again.
