Bloomsbury Street Hotel
The beautiful Bloomsbury quarter in London was converted by the Russell family into a quiet and elegant residential area during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It is known for its picturesque gardens and its connection to the world of literature, and of course, for being at the foot of the stunning British Museum.
Dedicated to human history, art and culture, the beautiful British Museum has magnificent traveling exhibitions and its ten apartments are home to many of the wonders of the old world, such as Rosetta Stone, a stone giant of Easter Island and an endless number of mummies and Egyptian ruins.
In order to explore all the wings of the British Museum - a work of art itself - I had the pleasure of staying just a few steps from its doors, in Bloomsbury Street Hotel of Radisson Blu Edwardian.
Upon entering this modern and comfortable hotel we find innovative works of art such as the large red antelope in the lobby or the thin sculptures amongst the windows with human shapes.
Outside the building looks like an old building, contrasting with its modern interiors. From the suites on the higher floors of the hotel you can enjoy beautiful views of the roofs and fireplaces of this part of London called Bloomsbury.
The hotel is a blend of luxury and contemporary style, where each of the 174 guest rooms has an elegant blend of luxurious furnishings, marble bathrooms and state-of-the-art technology including flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations.
For those visiting on business, Euston Station, Paddington and Kings Cross St Pancras are just around the corner, while Tottenham Court Road Station, located on the Central and Northern lines of the tube, connects directly to Notting Hill , Bond Street, Leicester Square and Waterloo.
The perfect combination of a great cosmopolitan city with a rich historical past, London has it all. This vibrant metropolis is the cultural heart of the United Kingdom, a great bustle of museums, monuments, churches, palaces and extravagant streets - both modern and ancient.
