Cheap hotels in Bloomsbury is a relative term, as the Bloomsbury hotel area is not the cheapest central London area in which to find accommodation.
On paper, the district should have cheap accommodation, with London University and medical schools in the district but it is not an area full of cheaper options. The cheap hotels available are the mostly small mid-range bed and breakfast-style establishments.
Most of the budget accommodation in Bloomsbury is in terraced buildings of three to six storeys.
Bloomsbury is a short walk from many of London's West End Theatres with Covent Garden and Leicester Square only a 15-min walk away. Bloomsbury is one of London's main literary areas and has many bookshops, collector shops and the British Museum as its main tourist attraction.
The central location and its interesting environment mean you do pay a premium over some other hotel districts. We have a dedicated page for 4 or 5-star hotels in Bloomsbury if you would like to pay that little bit more.
In Bloomsbury itself, there are no, no-frills budget chain hotels. Nearby though, there is the Travelodge Covent Garden by Drury Lane and there is a Premier Inn at Holborn on the fringes of Bloomsbury. Both have room rates well above their hotels in Euston which is just to the north. During the working week the St Giles Hotel, a large tower hotel, normally has good value advanced purchase rooms that offer exceptional value against other hotels in the area. Sadly, these prices do not normally extend to the weekends.
Bloomsbury is not a cheap area of London. It is very centrally located and close to the major attractions as well as the theatre district, shopping and entertainment. You are in essence paying extra for the convenience and central location of any hotels in this area. You can expect to pay between £100 and £300 per night.
Bloomsbury’s location is excellent and gives you access to central London and all that offers in terms of attractions and entertainment. You can easily stay on foot in the area so getting around close by is very easy.
If you are looking for really cheap hotels in London then Bloomsbury is not normally the best place to start looking. Just a 10-min walk away in St Pancras you can find some of the best value cheap hotel accommodation in London.
