London/Bloomsbury: The Ridgemount or The Arosfa?

Jump to last reply

Both have great reviews, but am looking to see if anyone here can also vouch for either of them or share your experiences.

Definitely budget, but we spent so much on our lavish apartments in Paris and Amsterdam for this trip (and we're only in London 3 nights this time), so we figured a budget hotel would be fine.

I love this area - They are on the same street in Bloomsbury (Gower, not too far from Russell Square and Bedford square.. Also, he Russell Square station has the Piccadilly line, so we can get to and from Heathrow without much fuss. Both places also offer a full English breakfast for all guests that is included in the price.

I"m sure a triple (1 queen and 2 twins) or a double (2 double beds) will be a tight squeeze for two adults and two teens, but we'll be out most of the day and evening, so no big deal. We really just want a place to sleep and shower.

Also it's over Easter holiday, and I have noticed that most hotels and apartments raise the rate. Neither of these places do.

The Ridgemount triple ensuite room is £123 per night (includes tax and breakfast for each guest)

The Arosfa offered a "family room" with two double beds and en suite bathroom.
Their rate for the room is £157 per night (also includes tax and breakfast for each guest)

The fact that The Ridgemount is a total of £102 (over $160) less is quite a difference, and we are wondering if it's worth saving the $ and staying there.
