Cheap hotels in Bloomsbury, London

Situated north of Piccadilly Circus and the West End, leafy Bloomsbury is famous as the former headquarters of the bohemian writing clique known as the Bloomsbury Group. The charming neighborhood is centered around Russell Square and boasts the British Museum, University of London, and Georgian townhouse-lined streets.

Budget-friendly B&Bs line Gower Street, just west of the University, easily accessible to the rest of the central city. This is London at its most charming and, arguably, most literary.

Editor's Pick
Arosfa Hotel, London

Address 83 Gower Street (Bloomsbury)

The name of the hotel, Arosfa, means “a place to stay” in Welsh. We might suggest that another Welsh word, one meaning “gorgeous and lovely place good for value-hungry visitors” be applied as a replacement.
