4/10 Fair

No longer a five star hotel .... disappointing
I have stayed at the Bloomsbury before and loved it so booked again. Very disappointing this time. Hotel looks great and room was great but staff whilst look professional and anything but. Ordered a drink in the bar and sat and waiting and it didn't turn up. Ordered again and then saw it made and left at end of the bar so ended up going and getting it myself. TV in the room didn't work, internet was awful, virtually non existent and the final bit was in the morning I was looking for somewhere quiet to have a Teams call. The small room off of the reception was busy so i sat on a table on the outside terrace only for a member of staff to tell me the area was closed. When i explained what i was trying to do - finding somewhere quiet - she told me the area was closed and that I needed to leave! I therefore left the hotel and went round the corner to the Raddison where the staff were excellent - got a coffee within minutes - found somewhere to sit and internet was excellent. I will be staying there in future. The Bloomsbury may have been a five star in the past but the staff have let it down and it is no longer a five star London hotel
