The breakfast was a feast, everything I should be eating was there as well as all the food I should not! Finished off with a pleasant and easy check out, again... More

I stayed in this hotel earlier in the year whilst on a business trip and was extremely impressed. My room was beautiful, very peaceful, was a good size, and overlooked the street outside, As a result, it was my first choice when treating my daughter to an overnight London mini break. The deluxe room on the seventh floor was smaller... More

We have just spent three nights at the Russell Hotel and have been blown away by the wonderful customer service that we received, in particular from Michael and Richard. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Hotel Russell (we have stayed in most of the surrounding hotels .......) and will definately be staying there next time we visit London.... More

(Russell Square tube is right next door). The hotel is beautiful, very grand from the outside with marble pillars and wood panelling inside. Our... More

This hotel has provided service to us above and beyond anything we would ever expected. As part of a core team using the hotel facilities to coordinate over 400 delegates going on coach journeys on tours and a large convention, we relied heavily on the cooperation of the management team. Not only did they cooperate, they were a real joy... More

The girls and I had a lovely afternoon tea, with our very own table set up in the library. The waiter was very friendly, and showed us the selection of teas, offering suggestions (there was a lot of choice). The sandwiches, cakes and scones were very tasty, with a fresh plate of sandwiches brought out when we finished the first.... More
