Take a look at the best boutique hotels in Bloomsbury.
The 100-room Montague on the Gardens is a bit larger than some of London's other boutique hotels, but its unique character, abundance of thoughtful extras, and variety of lounge and dining spaces create a distinct appeal. Being a member of the Red Carnation Group means well-trained staff and luxury standards, making the Montague an unsurprisingly solid boutique establishment. There's no pool or spa, though, and the fitness room in painfully small.
Nicely tucked away in a surprisingly quiet area of central London, Arosfa Hotel is situated in a refurbished 200-year-old Georgian town house that was once the home Pre-Raphaelite artist Sir John Everett. It's a 15-room luxury bed and breakfast that is close to great transport links, and is within walking distance of some of London's major sights. With its old-meets-new design, a keen attention to detail, and a handful of free goodies for guests, Arosfa is small but enticing choice for short-term visits.
The Academy is an upscale boutique hotel set in a row of Georgian houses in central London's bookish Bloomsbury neighborhood. While the setting is relatively serene, there's plenty of public transport and much of the capital's bustling center within walking distance. The hotel underwent an extensive renovation that was completed in 2018. If rates feel a little steep -- especially with a charged breakfast -- guests could take a look at the nearby Arosfa, where rates include full English breakfast.
