Those who wish to educate themselves will find the British Museum just a short stroll down the road, a walk that is a treat in itself, as you take in the Georgian scenery and greenery. The nearest tube station is Tottenham Court Road, which is just a three minute walk and is serviced by the Central and Northern lines, providing direct access to the rest of the city and all of the popular tourist attractions.
The hotel provides a list of facilities for your convenience and entertainment.

There is also a concierge happy to help you with any plans you may have, a laundry and dry cleaning service and 24 hour room service. The Bloomsbury also features a library named The Seamus Heaney Library, so-called because of Seamus Heaney's frequent visits to the hotel.
