The Geyer family has been running the St Athans Hotel for almost 50 years. We recognise that there is a demand for clean, basic and inexpensive accommodation and we try to fulfill these criteria while adding friendliness and a bit of character into the mix.
Bloomsbury has a unique atmosphere created by its grand Georgian townhouses, elegant leafy squares and quaint charming streets. It can provide a hard-to-find tranquillity in the heart of an otherwise bustling and energetic metropolis.
We are a 5 minute walk away from the British Museum, the University of London and the British Library; and in 15-20 minutes you can walk to London’s West End (Soho, Oxford St, Covent Garden, Leicester Square etc) with its many shops, theatres and famous night spots.

We do not recommend bringing your car to London, but if you do please note that the Congestion Charge of £10 applies on weekdays between 07:00 and 18:00. You can pay this online or at the local corner shop.
You can park on the side streets (with one yellow line) near our hotel for free on weekdays between18:00 – 08:30 and on Saturdays from 13:30 until Monday 08:30. Outside of these hours parking is expensive, difficult and inconvenient so the best option is usually a car park. There are 3 car parks close by (see map) and they charge approx £20 per day.
