Bare bones but Very affordable
Our stay was fine. Room was sparse (think nun's cell) but clean as were the shared bathrooms. A reading light by the second bed would be a big improvement. Very affordable. Friendly people at the desk were helpful.

Exceptional 10.0
Very helpful and attentive staff, answered our many questions and volunteered useful info. Very conveniently located, great restaurants within the block and a few blocks, as well as a nice park and shopping center.

Surprisingly nice!
From the outside, this place does not look impressive, but inside it’s very nice. New and modern looking, including a washer/dryer in the very spacious unit I stayed in. The young lady that runs the place is polite and very helpful. The downsides are that there is no elevator if you have a lot of luggage, though t stayed on the 2nd floor so it wasn’t an issue. Also, the checkout time is 10am which seems too early to me. If you want to stay longer, it’s an extra 5 GBP (pounds) per hour.

Nice price, good location
Nice room to stay in. Bathrooms were located on the same floor. The room we stayed in has no air conditioning but luckily we had a nice window with breeze. Not sure if it would be cool if the temperature was hotter. Great location, nice staff. Loved the free drink at Bloomsbury Cafe and meal discount. I would stay there again as long as the weather in summer was cool.
Michele, us3 night trip with friends
Fair 4.0
The hotel is very old and it has lots of stairs and elevator. The rooms are pretty small and the share bathrooms needed to be cleaned more often. And the place smell weird because everything is so old.

good for travelers on a budget
the beds were on wheels and rolled out from underneath hmus a few times. Closest tube is at Russell Square which is approximately a 5 minutes walk. Shared bathrooms remained clean and staff were helpful.

Poor 2.0
Location is Only Perk
I booked this hotel for our Honeymoon in London over the New Year. I am sorry to say I was disappointed at basically every aspect of my stay at St. Athan’s Hotel. The only thing we truly enjoyed was the excellent location, but in terms of the rest we were both left upset at best. I was dismayed to find out that there were communal bathrooms for the guests, but I saw the reviews that they were clean and thought that we would be fine. Not so. While it was clear that the hotel staff made an effort to keep the bathrooms grime free, at least once a day my husband and I had an encounter with another guest’s feces. Not just a failure to flush, it somehow ended up on the toilet seats, the toilet frame, and the communal hand towels— disgusting. Our room, despite being billed as a double, had barely enough room for the bed and a warderobe with a small desk and chair crammed in (there was no configuration of the room where you could actually put the chair at the desk...) so we felt a bit like rats in a cage. Added to that was the fact that one of our two outlets was taken up by the festive Christmas tree outside our room’s window. Finally, the hotel staff were very polite at all times, but that translated into politely explaining that the cafe where guests usually get breakfast was closed for the holidays, leaving us to spend the money we thought we were saving on an economical hotel eating out at full price cafes, and that we couldn’t access a kettle (in ENGLAND!). Terrible stay.

Convenient location near Russell Square sta.
The staff is very helpful. But the condition of the hotel is not the best, with creaky floors, and the toilet in our room was wobbly and improperly sealed
Francisco, us2 night romance trip
Good 6.0
The staff are extremely helpful and the facility is neat. However, the stairs to the room are very narrow and a big challenge particularly when carrying luggage bags.
