St. Athans

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

The St. Athans Hotel is a family-run, simple and clean budget hotel in the heart of London, within walking distance of the British Museum, the University of London and St Pancras International. It's just a short bus ride away from Madame Tussaud's, the West End and the famous night spots of Soho and Camden Town.

The hotel is situated in the elegant Bloomsbury area, once home to Dickens and Virginia Woolf, comprising Grade II listed Georgian town-houses almost 200 years old. This lends the hotel its special character, full of interesting original features, with each room decorated differently.

Showers and toilets are cleaned twice daily and are usually shared by three-to-four rooms.

Our rates include VAT, but not breakfast. However, we have a coffee house in our premises, offering both English and continental breakfast, as well as a range of coffees and homemade cakes and snacks.

If you have any special needs please tell us. We have a number of rooms on the ground floor that could be suitable for those with movement disabilities, though not suitable for wheelchair use, as stairs and narrow corridors are an unavoidable feature of our 200-year-old Georgian building. There are at least three steps up from the pavement outside into our building.

The hotel has been with the same family since 1964 and is run by Lucia Geyer together with her three sons, Hans, Stefan, Karl, and daughter Maria-Lisa. We aim to offer a friendly service at great value for money, providing a clean and comfortable home from home; somewhere you can relax and feel welcome, with easy access to some of London's most famous attractions.

We require 48 hours' notice in case of a cancellation; otherwise we reserve the right to charge the amount of the first night.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Hotel is in a great location just a short walk to Russell Square and the international train station. Breakfast was good each day and the shared bathrooms were clean and sufficient. Staff were polite and generally helpful. We were not happy with the room as it had what we term a king single serving as the double bed and this was hard up against the room heater, clearly inadequate for two people.
