My wife and I regularly use Accor hotels but had not stayed here (or in a Mercure) before. We chose it on price and location and paid upfront for breakfast as it was supposed to be cheaper to do that, although it was on offer on the day at the same reduced price. The hotel was a nice, smaller, 'boutique'... More

A very pleasant and cosy hotel close to Russell Square, and 5 monutes walk from Russell Square tube station. Attentive and friendly staff to welcome guests. Excellent breakfast in agreeable and quiet restaurant, again with attentive staff. The room I had was very comfortable and spacious. I walked a lot to and from the Strand and Piccadilly, no need to... More

Stayed here with my partner as he was on a work conference. The double room was well sized and cosy and the bed was very comfortable compared to some hotels I have stayed in! The heated floor in the bathroom was a nice touch although it didn't seem to work the last day and a half we were there. In... More

Let's start with the positive: the hotel is in a pretty good location, within walking distance of lots of sights, shops and restaurants. Upon arrival the staff were friendly and efficient. Our triple room was rather spacious for London standards and there was plenty of high pressure, hot water for us all to get through our morning rituals. Sadly enough... More

Room was found clean, only grumble was tv set stuttered a lot as if satellite dish not set up quite right. Staff at front desk friendly/helpful. Close to restaurants of all types, short... More

Stayed here over the Remembrance weekend. Great location, just a few minutes walk to Russell Square underground giving easy access to London and all the sights. As soon as you enter the hotel you get the impression that it is spotlessly clean and it doesn't disappoint. Rooms are quite small but perfectly formed and comfortable. Our only disappointments were that... More

You cannot be in a better position for visiting Covent Garden, The British Museum & so much more. There is a great cafe & eating culture in this area. The hotel was very efficient, clean & the selection at breakfast was excellent. We would definitely stay here again.
