Cheap Bed and Breakfasts in London Bloomsbury / Russell Square

Budget Accommodation Near The British Museum, Russell Square On The Fringes Of West End Theatre District


Typical Bloomsbury Hotel London

Typical Hotel Building In Bloomsbury

Cheap Bed and Breakfasts in Bloomsbury are not really what Bloomsbury is about. Make no mistake there is cheap accommodation in Bloomsbury area, but less than a mile or one tube stop away at the Kings Cross St Pancras Bed & Breakfast hotels you will get better better value for the same money.


On paper the district should have cheap accommodation, with a major university and medical schools in the district. The cheap hotels that are available are mostly small bed and breakfast style establishments. You will find them in three distinct areas, in the block south of Russell Square and east of the British Museum, along Gower Street to the west of the British Museum and around Cartwright Gardens half way between Russell Square and Euston Station.

Most of the budget accommodation is in terraced buildings of three to six storeys like in the image.


Bloomsbury is a very short walk from many of London's West End Theatres, Covent Garden and Leicester Square only a 15 minute walk tops.

Bloomsbury is a favourite area for a short West End theatre break. There is no shortage of good quality 3 or 4 star hotels in Bloomsbury that address this market.

This tends to put upward pressure on prices at weekends. Yet if you look less than a mile away around Euston Station and St Pancras Station, the reverse is true - rates come down at the weekend for the full service hotels in these districts.


In Bloomsbury itself there are this moment no no frills budget chain hotels. The nearest such hotels are in Euston and St Pancras where Ibis, Premier Inn and Travelodge have a presence. Travelodge also have a site in Covent Garden by Drury Lane.

During the working week the St Giles Hotel, a very large tower hotel normally has very good value advanced purchase rooms that offer exceptional value against the hotels in the district. Sadly these prices do not normally extend to the weekends.
