The bell captain's staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. We had a problem with a room which the registration desk staff tried to solve but the hotel was sold out. The management staff beautifully solved the problem the next day. The hotel has a magnificent exterior and a lovely lobby. Request that your room not be on the 7th floor... More

I've stayed here three times - very convenient and always good. Great location for the British museum and really convenient for Russell Sq tube. The rooms we've stayed in have always been newly refurbished and are nicely decorated in earth tones. Good bathroom, nit the most luxurious but newly fitted. The dining room is good and breakfast is very plentiful... More

The Russell Hotel is well located and easyily accessible. The building is impressive. My room was rather small with not very up to date furniture (I guess 80s), the TV was not functioning properly, parts of the mixing valve in the bathtub broken and the noise from the inner court from the ventilation installation extremely loud. As the windows were... More

Great hotel in a really convenient location. Staff were very helpful. We had an upper floor room, and it was fairly quiet. Room was a little small, but really comfy bed and great shower! We had room service one nice, and the food was delicious and served promptly. Handy that there is a Tesco local around the corner for any... More

If you want to experience a historical great hotel in London you should try hotel Russell at Russell square in Bloomsbury. When it was built in 1898 it was one of the first luxury hotels in London. It still shows in its imposing facade and interiors. One fun facts is that the breakfast room was the model for SS Titanic... More

Stayed here for 4 nights alone visiting friends who live in London. This hotel is in an incredibly convenient location, steps from Russell Square tube (direct to HTW). From here you can walk to the river, Covent Garden, parliament, etc. Very central and safe to walk around. The rooms have everything you might need and, ok, so it is not... More

Neighborhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
