Our overall experience was good,but one of our major irritations is someone who is booking us in answering the phone in the middle of this procedure.This happened twice within about 10 minutes.There were at least 5 people on reception so surely one of these could have been specifically designated to answer the phone.we feel very strongly that the person in front of you should come first.

We stayed for one nigh, for a Chismas party. Staff were excellent throughout the hotel, room was of a good standard, we had a good nhsights sleep, breakfast in the morning was first class. Great location for access to Central London, very happy to recommend to others.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel on Saturday 17th November 2012.
The staff were extremely pleasant and friendly and very keen to ensure we had everything we needed. The room was quite small, probably one of the smallest I have every stayed in, but it was certainly very clean.
We were offered a choice of two rooms, one on the 2nd floor and other on the 5th. We opted for the one on the 2nd since the one on the 5th had an adjoining door which I know from past experience can sometime be quite noisy. With hindsight I wish we had chosen the one on the 5th because we were kept awake until 3am by loud music from a function being held below. I did complain but nothing was done. This ruined what could have been a perfect stay. Would I stay again? No !

The hotel is pretty nice, good hospitality and it's position is perfect.
Unfortunately, the room had a huge column in between the bed and the desk that reduced the space available

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Breakfast Staff
The staff at this hotel are excellent. We have always stayed at this hotel when in London.It is the quality of the staff in particular which keep us coming back. Many of the staff have been with the hotel for some years and always make us feel welcome. We have on the odd occasion stayed at other hotels in the area, but have found they don't match the standard offered at Holiday Inn - Bloomsbury.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lightning Another great stay, thank you
As always the team of staff at the Holiday Inn, Bloomsbury were fantastic - the customer service is wonderful.
Had a great stay and the biggest bed I have ever slept in, in any hotel - it was sooooooo comfortable.
Thanks to everyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by whiteravenfire Lovely new hotel
We only had limited time at the hotel, but found the hotel and executive room to be lovely.
The room was very big and comfortable.
The only downside is the location around the hotel looks a little run down, but don't let that put you off booking this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Paul123 Review for weekend stay
-/- Room not ready more than 2hrs after checkin time. Directed to the bar to wait, but no complementary drink offered.
-/- The door to the room did not fit properly in its frame, which caused the noise from the hallway to come in.
-/- Limited controls on airconditioning system.
+ Conveniently located in between St Pancras station and city centre.

Nice functional hotel with very friendly and professional staff. Very conveniently located, walking distance from Euston Station and convenient to get into the West End ... just a couple of stops to Covent Garden from Russell Square tube station immediately to the rear of the property.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by suerose Excellent value
A friend and I stayed for 3 nights, everything was as expected for a Holiday Inn, clean comfortable rooms/beds, friendly, helpful staff and excellent choice for breakfast. 2-3 minutes walk to the underground which gives easy access to the rest of London and attractions. No hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by little1 Comfort and great location
The rooms are small, but in other regards this hotel combines all the usual Holiday Inn virtues (very comfortable bed, nice bath and shower, well maintained, quiet, etc.) with an excellent location. The hotel is only two minutes from Piccadilly underground station (and hence a direct, inexpensive and frequent link with Heathrow... takes about an hour), an easy walk from the British Museum, Covent Garden and Soho, and adjacent to Brunswick Square with its range of eating options (Carluccio's highly recommended for breakfast, lunch or dinner, plus a great food market on Saturdays) and an excellent Waitrose supermarket. The only negative is the charge for internet access... any charge is ridiculous, and the very expensive rate here is outrageous.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by digiJay Great location, good staff - disappointed
OK, great location near Russel Square, the Underground, and walking distance to most tourist sites. Comfortable beds and safe secure access.
That said, the hotel is 'American' in name only. Americans expect free ice, cups and glasses (plastic) in the rooms, wifi available someplace in the public areas, an iron, and reasonable breakfast for a family.
During a four day stay with two adults and a young teen, there was one plastic glass and no additional ones available on the cleaning people carts. Despite the room set for three, only two mugs were ever present. 'Maths' challenged I guess.
Ice is only available in the bar in a drink, and the bar is not open all night either. No vending available for a late night snack or soda. Huh? I'd have been happy to pay £2 for a diet Coke.
The room had a press for slacks, but i had to request an iron for a shirt. Considering that I bet they get many Americans, you might expect some availability of electric adapters...
I expect to pay high prices in a city center, but when I pick an American hotel I expect it to meet the common service levels in the US unless there are a local restrictions (alcohol, meat, water, etc.)
There was little evidence it was a Holiday Inn other than the logo. It seems like H.I. bought another property and hasn't added their touch.
Same trip, I had a great stay at Holiday Inns in Wales and Bristol (expectations met) and a comparably poor amenities experience at the Gatwick HI Express.
Staff was very friendly, American style, at all the properties we visited.
I'm not an American chauvinist. We stayed on the continent in local hotels and B&Bs where we received the European experience we expected. We had expected to rest up in London....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by keenan1975 Staff went that little bit extra:-)
We stayed a Friday to Sunday as part of our daughters 7th birthday celebrations. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left she was treated like a little princess and all the staff (especially in the restaurant) went out their way to make it a birthday she would remember. The hotel was very clean as was the room which had everything you needed for your stay. The food in restaurant was beautiful and the service was great. We will definitely return:-)

The hotel is in a great location close to Russell Square. The room was very comfortable and clean my only gripe would be the size of the bathroom especially when trying to bath children. All the staff we met were friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was superb. We will definitely be returning to this hotel on our next visit to London.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kentraveller Excellent hotel in a great area
I had a great one night stay here. The staff were very friendly, the room was comfortable. The hotel is situated in a great location. There are many attractions within reasonable walking distance as well as mainline stations such as Euston, St Pancras and King cross. Russell street tube station is just round the corner. The breakfast in the morning was excellent. This rounded off a superb stay at the Holiday Inn Bloomsbury, London. I would definitely stay here again.

Very comfortable hotel. Perfectly placed. We were in an executive
room on the top floor. Luxurious apart from hearing the slight drone of the air conditioning unit. outside. 2 other small problems in our room too which we reported, staff were 100% helpful, kind and caring. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. Value for money if using your Priority Club Card points was excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Geoff634 Good location in Central London
Rooms are nice enough although a bit small. Plenty of TV Channels to chose from.
Internet costs a fortune though. In this day and age I would have thought for business users this should be free. This is the only thing that lets this place down.
Breakfast was OK with staff very attentive.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Paul1234 Absolutely awful hotel
Never has any upgrades, rooms tiny and very dated, staff ignore complaints, very very poor hotel. I would not suggest staying here, there are other holiday inns in London, and if you can't get in them, I wouldn't stay here just to get your points, it's not worth it!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glyn67 Excellent stay, good value hotel
This was my second stay at Coram Street, Bloomsbury, London.
My main reason for choosing this Hotel is that it has an underground car park, which is excellent, very clean as ambient music and is well lit, but is not run by the Hotel group.
However, the Hotel is outstanding.
On both visits, 12 nights and more recently two nights, I have had no reason to complain. The rooms are clean, the bedding and provided towels are clean too. Complimentary shampoo and shower gel, tissues are provided as are tea and coffee making facilities. TV / Radio, a wide choice of lighting and a hair dryer are also provided.
Value for money is good, I only wish that the room tariffs could be better presented. I would like to be able to book last minute / day before stay breaks without incurring late booking charges for example, I booked over a month in advance and got a double room for one person at £109 per night + VAT. I checked the on-line booking site two nights before my stay as I wanted to extend my break and the room was nearly double that price for an extra night.
The staff are polite and helpful and I will definitely be booking with the group again for my next stay and would recommend the group to friends.
