About Us & More

Warmly welcoming you to London since 1837

At the Imperial London Family of Hotels, we exist to put authentic London experiences and memorable stay's within everyone's reach. We started out in 1837 so that we could offer brilliant basics to people from every walk of life in the city centre, and we continue to do so today. 

London is an eclectic and diverse place, the same goes for our characterful hotels. With charming décor, ample restaurant options and welcoming staff, you'll feel right at home. We understand a place as large as London can be intimidating, but you'll be in knowledgeable and experienced hands with us.

A Warm Welcome

Our friendly and generous team are ready to welcome you and make you feel right at home. 

For your reassurance, reception desks are open 24 hours a day, to assist you throughout the day and night. 

Our hotel bars and restaurants are open 7 days a week, to enjoy your favourite meals and drinks, whilst in London.

And our housekeepers with an impressive eye for detail, can make up your room, free of charge during your stay.

Characterful Stays

We're not just any regular accommodation in London. We are hotels packed with character and personality, so you can experience a special stay. 

From our unique architecture and interiors, to our historical stories and staff, you'll find intriguing details wherever you look.
Many of our hotel exteriors reflect Brutalist architecture, a design movement which emphasises patterns, angles and sturdy materials, so don't forget to look up!

There's unforgettable history in our fabric. In the past we've had an array of famous guests, such as the Beatles, who had a long-stay at President Hotel in 1960. Come follow in their footsteps and start your London story. 

Unbeatable Central Location

We're based in Bloomsbury in the heart of London, within easy reach of everything that matters in the city. 

Russell Square underground station on the Piccadilly Line is close to all our hotels and provides an easy link to Heathrow Airport, Covent Garden, Leicester Square, Knightsbridge and more.

Euston and Kings Cross St. Pancras stations are a short 10 - 15 minute walk away, ideal for over ground train connections. 

And a 2 minute walk from the infamous British Museum, we are neighbours to this must-see cultural attraction, for full London immersion. 

Feel like a Local

It can be hard to know what's best to see and do, considering how vast the city is. We're here to help you see the UK capital through a local's eyes. 

Begin with a browse of our seasonal Explore London Guides, offering a carefully chosen selection of destinations and attractions, from ice-skating in winter to the best shopping spots in summer.
