Here is a good hotel recommendation for London


Recommended Posts

We recently took a British Isles cruise....sailed July 31st from Southampton. We stayed in London for three days prior to the cruise. We stayed in a lovely reasonably priced hotel in Bloomsbury. It was The Morton Hotel. We honestly cannot say anything bad about it! We had two queen connecting rooms with private bathrooms. In between the two rooms there is a sitting room with a TV, table and chairs and a sofa. There is also a kitchenette with dishes, small fridge, microwave and even a small dishwasher! The rooms overlooked the front entrance but after 9pm the area quieted right down and sleeping was no problem. The hotel has three coffee shops within the block to choose from. The Russell Square subway stop was a half block away and that took us wherever we wanted to go!  I highly recommend downloading the "city mapper " app. You put in where you want to go , where you are, and they tell you what bus to take, or subway, or bike route, and even walking. It was a big help to us! Russell Square is right across the street and the British Museum is a short walk away. In the room we had a coffee maker, tea maker, cookies , slippers and robes. The hotel has elevators. If you are looking for something unusual to do in London consider the west side tour of Highgate Cemetery! Awesome!

I have stayed in this neighborhood many many times.  It is one of my favorites .  Marchmont street is filled with unique , diverse shops and some fun eating.  Close to the west end theatres but far enough , on the backside of the university, so that it doesn't feel congested.  Be warned Russell Square station does not favor  mobility impaired users .  It  is , however on the Piccadilly line and therefore a straight shot from LHR
