Very kind and helpful staff. Beautiful hotel, Located 1 min. walk from the Russell Square Underground and also buses to city center. We ordered the superior double room which was very clean and big with coffee/tea kit. Also near the underground station (1 minute from the hotel) there's a Pret cafe which is great for morning coffee and great food.... More

Stayed at the hotel for two nights recently as we are running training events there. The hotel looks amazing and the entrance area and stairway is just breath-taking...but sadly so are the prices. I understand the prices were higher than normal due to it being London Fashion Week, but nonetheless the prices are high for this area. The reception was... More

We stayed on Saturday 27th September. Arrival was easy, check in was fine. Complimentary bottle of fizz in our room was great too! Bar was great too. Room wasn't massive but clean & lovely fluffy towels in the bathroom. Only downside was non functioning air-con which made the room roasting hot! Reception sent us up a fan within 2 minutes... More

Luckily I only stayed one night, but for £170 I expected something better than this. Literall I could touch both walls with my arms stretched out. That being said the hotel is 2 mins from Russell Square tube station in the Piccadilly line and has lots of bars & restaurants around. The area of Bloomsbury has a nice feel to... More

The room was spacious and well lit. This was a deluxe double and the bathroom was large spotless and had a separate bath and shower with nice quality soap but very small amounts of reasonable shower gel. Why do hotels think 1 shower gel suitable for a mouse is OK? Beds very comfortable but hotel too hot. The corridors were... More

Me and my wife had a great weekend stay at this hotel. The best looking Hotel in London, and not to expensive for the weekend. The staff are very good, and the late night door man is very funny The fire alarm went off on the last night of our stay, but this was handled very well by the staff.... More

We stayed 3 nights. The room was nice, staff friendly and helpful, great location. We had breakfast only once, the choice is very wide, I had the english kind, and everything was very good, but at over 20 pounds, this is really too expensive for a breakfast, and we switched to the pret a manger almost next door for the...

I couldn´t have been more happy with the hotel. Impressive, beautiful, historical building. Absolutely lovely. My room was in 6th floor, windows overlooking the beautiful Russel park. The bed was comfortable. Lovely, clean room. Thick, white towels that were changed every day. The staff were polite and helpful, very professional. The lobby and the stairways were grand with crystal chandeliers... More

I love the Russell like one loves an old aunt. She is far from perfect, but the old world charm compensates for that. Also, one can't deny that the location is absolutely wonderful. You can walk all over London from here, and the British Museum is two minutes away! The breakfast is legendary - if you take your time here,... More
