I can imagine this place being severely uncomfortable in the summer, with its lack of controlled temperature in their rooms, but when I was here in the fall, it was perfect. I love the location, the museum around the corner, the friendly staff... even if it doesn't have in-room safes, going next door to store my valuables when I was out was the biggest inconvenience, and I didn't even mind that so much.
They also offer some great toiletries, and I appreciate that!
The staff was SUPER nice, and I really appreciate that as well.
Note: I didn't get to try the in-house food.
I will be returning here, just perhaps not in the summer months.
You can fall out of your bed and practically land in the British Museum here. Seriously, the Grange White Hall Hotel is incredibly well-located for exploring nearby Bloomsbury Square, Soho, the University of London, and lots of other places in the central city.
The breakfast buffet is tasty and filling, the elevator is quite the showpiece, and the hotel pub is cozy and well-stocked with beer, wine, and spirits. The staff were also very solicitous and well-informed about places to visit in Central London. Rooms are small but well-maintained, with large windows, decent bathrooms, and overall a nice atmosphere for a restored, historic sort of place. It's also very near to the German Historical Institute, which is the reason my wife and I stayed here on a recent trip to London. But even if were paying for the room, we would have enjoyed our stay!
Note: I mistakenly reviewed another nearby hotel, the George Hotel near Russell Square, when I meant to do the Grange. I have since double-checked my travel itinerary and made the correction! The George may be very nice, too, but we never stayed there.
Established in 1985.
The Grange White Hall is a beautiful 4-star boutique hotel, located in central Bloomsbury. Once a 16th century Georgian townhouse, the hotel has since had all its former features lovingly restored to their original elegance.
Its 58 spacious guest bedrooms are fully en-suite, with many given an inviting period feel by features such as carved rosewood furniture, four-poster beds and marble fireplaces.
Continental food is served daily at the in-house restaurant, with afternoon tea and light snacks also available in the comfortable lounge bar. Access to health club and pool facilities can be arranged at our sister hotel, for a nominal charge.
The Grange White Hall also has a number of flexible meeting rooms that can be hired for business meetings, in addition to an outdoor conservatory and beautiful private garden.
