Steeped in history, the leafy streets and Georgian squares are home to a myriad of publishing houses, galleries and antiquarian book shops, along with an eclectic selection of cafés, pubs and restaurants. Covent Garden which has become home to numerous household names in the hi-tech world and which boasts a galaxy of fashion and design shops is a short walk away. This is the perfect base from which to explore the City, for the business or leisure traveller, or just a great place to hang out and pretend to be a Londoner.
Designed in the 1930's by renowned British Architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens, The Bloomsbury Hotel has undergone a sensitive restoration, resulting in the chic heritage hotel we see today. The Grade 2 listed building retains many of its original architectural features including the magnificent stone entrance steps and doorway, double height lobby and the book lined Seamus Heaney Library, named after the late Nobel Laureate, who was a regular guest.
The finest of contemporary furnishings and fabrics, selected with a lightness of touch, provide a relaxing back drop for the best of modern British hospitality. Enjoy a drink on the leafy garden terrace or The Bloomsbury Afternoon Tea in the lobby and you will be transported to an earlier more leisurely time; a brief respite from the pulse of 21st century London just outside.
Bright and spacious guest rooms are located over 8 floors and look out over the neighbouring streets and rooftops or into the quiet central court. Complete with Italian marble bathrooms, many rooms are decorated in distinctive black & white, beloved of Lutyens. Our generous corner Suites offer spacious residential style living spaces and are equipped with every convenience for the perfect leisure or business stay. A wide range of meeting rooms and party spaces including the magnificent Queen Mary room and Chapel, make the Bloomsbury Hotel the perfect venue for social occasions and business events. Catering is provided by a dedicated in house team offering a selection of specially prepared dishes, fresh from The Bloomsbury Hotel kitchens.
