Offering an excellent central location and a good value base. The Royal National is one of our best-selling hotels, popular with families and budget travellers.

This large, busy hotel combines great functionality with a lively atmosphere. One of the main attractions of this hotel is its great location, in the heart of Bloomsbury. It is close to the British Museum, the West End theatre district and London’s most famous shopping street, Oxford Street.

The Standard rooms include fairly basic facilities, so don’t expect complimentary toiletries or air-conditioning. A simple, full breakfast, in the main restaurant is included. Although it can get busy due to the size of the hotel, the friendly staff run a very efficient service.

An upgrade to the City Sleeper room is reasonably priced too. These have been refurbished in 2018 and feature a 40” widescreen TV, complimentary toiletries and blackout curtains. They’re also the quietest of the guest rooms available, with dedicated key card access. A full English breakfast is included, and is served in the Meeting Place lounge rather than in the main restaurant.

There are a good range of reasonably-priced restaurants to choose from including a pizzeria, pub and a coffee shop. A local health club and bowling alley are also available for use by guests at a charge.
