A super-central Bloomsbury hotel by Russell Square, with Edwardian facade and colourful interiors - breakfast included

Join the Bloomsbury set with a stay at the neighbourhood's namesake Bloomsbury Park Hotel, located in the heart of central London. Follow in the footsteps of the literati and artists who once lived nearby - including none other than Charles Dickens - and who've left a rich cultural legacy that endures to the present day. From here it's literally a hop, skip and a jump to famous institutions like the British Museum, as well as more prosaic attractions like shopper's paradise Oxford Street.

Harking back to the area's heyday, Bloomsbury Park Hotel occupies an imposing Edwardian building, retaining its intricate red brickwork and high-ceilinged interiors. Today it adds a stylish twist for the discerning modern visitor, like textured velour furnishings, walnut flooring and arty prints in the ground-floor bar.

Each morning, the hotel breakfast amply sets you up for a day pounding the capital's streets. Return to enjoy a pre-theatre dinner at Bloomsbury Park's brasserie, safe in the knowledge that you can walk to many famous West End theatres from your door. Coming evening, stop off at one of nearby Covent Garden's many buzzing pubs, then enjoy a nightcap in the hotel bar, where you can kick back in a private booth and people-watch through the window.

Good to know

Parts of the hotel are due to be refurbished in the future, so please check before booking.
