Solo Explorers

Comfort & Care for Single Guests

Whichever hotel you choose to stay at in the Imperial London Hotels family, we have thoroughly local London on our doorsteps. From the British Museum to Russell Square gardens, you can immerse yourself in the city's charm and hidden gems, any time of year.
As Virginia Woolf once wrote, 'to walk alone in London is the greatest rest'. 
Follow in Woolf's footsteps, the famous writer who previously lived on the site of Tavistock Hotel and looked out onto Tavistock Square Gardens each morning. Stay in a single room and rest assured Tavistock's friendly team will warmly welcome you.
Or head on over to Bedford Hotel to immerse yourself in magical surroundings and wake up to a fairytale view in a garden view single room. Don't forget to try one of the beautiful cocktails which taste as good as they look at Botanica Restaurant on the ground floor. 
The area is pedestrian friendly and there is so much to see everywhere you look. From shops and restaurants, to museums and parks, Bloomsbury is an oasis in the heart of central London. 
We are in prime location for various London bus routes and a short walking distance to Euston and Kings Cross St. Pancras. Only 2 minutes to Russell Square tube station, you can be easily connected to other parts of London, such as Green Park and Covent Garden within moments.

Your Time to Bloom

A stay at our natural and artistic hotel, with a private garden, will help you plant your roots in the city. 

Bedford Hotel is the ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. But still close enough to Covent Garden and Tottenham Court Road (both 10 - 15 minutes walking distance) for retail therapy and to see the latest West End shows. 

Discover the winding patio, flourishing plants and water features in the secret garden. Choose from an array of drinks and fresh food in Botanica restaurant on the ground floor. What's not to love? 

Feel at Home

A stay at Tavistock Hotel is the perfect stop after a long train journey from Euston or King's Cross St Pancras, only a 10 minute walk away. Get comfortable in our light and airy single rooms, ideally suited for solo travellers, complete with all the modern essentials. 

Don't forget to visit our two restaurants within the hotel: Woolf & Whistle for a refreshing drink and Poppadom for a hearty plate of Indian food. 

Then take a stroll in Tavistock Square Gardens across the road, sprouting blossoms in spring, vibrant green trees in summer, auburn leaves in autumn and frosty white lawns in winter - any day of the year is special in our leafy part of London.

Explore like a Local

Experience the city just like a local, when staying with the Imperial London Family of Hotels in Bloomsbury. 

All our hotels are perfectly situated in the heart of the city. A stone's throw from top destinations like the British Museum and Charles Dickens' Museum - these are a must-see for first timers to London. But get to know the city even better and visit the array of bookshops in our area, peruse the boutique sellers on Store Street or take a moment to soak up some sunshine in nearby Russell Square Gardens.
