    About

    Built in the 1930's by the architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, The Bloomsbury Hotel welcomes guests to step into a more graceful era upon crossing its Georgian threshold. Fully restored in 1998 as a luxury boutique hotel, the building retained many of its original aspects, from its stone entryway to a high-ceilinged, elegant lobby and library. While offering a more contemporary aesthetic, the hotel references its original architect with furnishings in neutral tones or black and white, Lutyens' preferred color scheme.

    The Bloomsbury Experience

    The Bloomsbury Hotel offers perfectly modern amenities like free Wi-Fi and a fitness center, though guests should be sure to take the famous, traditional Bloomsbury afternoon tea at the Landseer Restaurant, or if weather permits, outside on the Summer Terrace. (The Landseer also serves excellent contemporary cuisine all day and classic cocktails in the evenings.) The wheelchair-accessible hotel is popular for both weddings and business functions, with several different lofty, ornate reception rooms and an on-site chapel.

    Look Around the Neighborhood

    In walking distance of The Bloomsbury Hotel are the British Museum, the quirky Cartoon Museum, and the Royal Opera House. Children will love Coram Fields, an exceptionally fun playground and park. Bloomsbury, with its many galleries, cafes, and restaurants, is also convenient to other coveted London areas, like Covent Garden. For accessing broader London, the Underground is around the corner, at Tottenham Court Road.
