Located in Bloomsbury, the hotel is in the absolute beating heart of central London, surrounded by famous districts such as the West End and Soho. This means that many of the city's attractions are close by, with Covent Garden a 10 minute walk away and the City of Westminster, Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park a short tube ride away. The nearest tube stations are Russell Square and Holborn, both a five minute walk away. Russell Square is serviced by the Piccadilly Line, and Holborn by the Piccadilly and Central Lines, offering easy access both to central London and to its outskirts.
As well as hotspot WiFi, the hotel provides facilities for meetings. The Canterbury Suite is fully air-conditioned and suitable for small conferences or, alternatively, it can be used for intimate private meals.
All of the rooms are en-suites and contain a television with free movies, a telephone, hairdryer, safe, WiFi and tea and coffee making facilities. Superior Rooms are also available, as well as the hotel's ultimate in luxury, the Aquarian Suite. Baby cots and irons are available on request.
They say the best things come in threes and at Mercure London Bloomsbury there are three dining options, aside from the countless venues that surround the hotel. The Aquarian Restaurant is on the ground floor, serving breakfast and dinner. The hotel provides a selection of menus that will not only suit all tastes, but all wallets too. As an added bonus it can be used as a venue for private meals and functions. Dean's Brasserie serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, featuring a variety of buffets as well as coffee and snacks. Finally, Dean's Bar serves a selection of cocktails and wines. With its recently installed pool table, it's a popular venue with local residents.
Cots are available on request.
International guests may take either the Gatwick Express into Victoria at a journey time of 30 minutes, or the Heathrow Express to Paddington in just half of that. Guests arriving via Victoria should take the Victoria Line to Green Park and continue from Green Park to Holborn using the Piccadilly Line. Those arriving at Paddington should take the Bakerloo Line Line to Oxford Circus and change onto the Central Line, which runs to Holborn. The hotel is easy to find from Holborn as it is just a short walk north on Northampton Row.
Visitors arriving by vehicle should exit the M25 at Junction 16 and follow the A40 through central London until it becomes Euston Road. From here guests should turn left onto Upper Woburn Place, which becomes Northampton Row further along.
