The Royal National Hotel in London enjoys a direct underground link to London Heathrow Airport as well as being in the heart of Bloomsbury. Whether you're visiting London for business or leisure you couldn't hope to find a more central base. Enjoy the wide choice of restaurants that can be found on the doorstep or use the tempting selection of in-house eateries. These include the authentic tastes of Italy in Blooms Pizza Cafe or more traditional British dishes in the Pavilion Roastery. If you just want a drink and light snack with family or colleagues then head to the Meeting Place or the London Pub. As well as classic beers and tasty fish and chips, the London Pub has a twist. Step out onto the terrace and discover graffiti by a legendary street artist. The Royal National is part of the family-owned Imperial London Hotels chain so you know you're going to receive an excellent standard of accommodation and service along with a warm welcome. There is also the added bonus of being able to enjoy all the facilities of the chain's six other hotels in Bloomsbury. These range from restaurants and bars to car parks, health clubs, shops and even a bowling alley.

    Great location. I was in london on business in the holborn area and staying at the royal national meant i could actually walk there. In the evening i found places to dine in the area, but as it wasn't too far from covent garden and piccadilly circus i also had my dinner there a couple of nights and didn't take long to get back to the hotel afterwards.

    The hotel is very big and you definitely don't get the personal treatment you might at smaller ones, but if you prioritise location and price over this, it's a good option.

    We were a bit sceptical because all the other hotels in this area – or anywhere in central london for that matter – are a lot more expensive, but we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel itself is certainly nothing fancy, but considering its location and price, it was a real find, particularly as all we did there was sleep, shower and have breakfast. It's just a few minutes walk from the british museum. As we enjoy walking, we actually hardly used public transport at all. Our room was clean and adequate, as were breakfasts. For an extra £5 you can upgrade to an english breakfast, but we found the continental one to be enough to start off the day. Would definitely recommend it if you're looking for great location but don't want to pay london prices.

    La ubicación es lo mejor que tiene el hotel, las camas muy incómodas son de muelles, llevo muchos años viajando a ese hotel y está siempre igual. Deberían de renovarlo.
