Unfortunatly on our first day we was ripped off by a taxi from the station to the hotel of £10! The showers need updating as you couldnt stand up and use them in my... More

service from the staff was good. The room was clean,small but adequate for us. Hotel location was in central London but extremely noisy all through the night. worst of all...no airconditioning!! unforgiveable.

Have been to this hotel on a number of occasions. We always ask for a room overlooking the fountain and courtyard and have never suffered excess noise. The rooms we have had were spacious and clean and the breakfast although not loads of choice was always adequate. The hotel is in a nice area within easy reach of buses and... More

Imperial Hotel in London doesn't pretend to be more or other than what it is; a three star London hotel for people who value location higher than fancy features and deignerly whims. Except from the lobby, which indeed sends other signals than the rest of the hotel with its old-fashioned and luxurious air of chesterfield, velvet and brass, the hotel... More

We stayed here for the night as a base for a weekend stay in London. Hotel is large and a bit dated in presentation. However, it is clean and well presented, with helpful and friendly staff. The breakfast is fine, full English if you want it, and the hotel facilities are ok. Nice to sit out on the balcony in... More

Easy to find & ideal for visiting all the sights. Not much to look at outside, in fact its quite an ugly building. The room had all we needed & was clean. Reception staff were difficult to deal with as English was not their first language & it took an age to book in! The dining room is not big... More

This hotel wasn't terrible but it wasn't great either. All the rooms that face the street are very noisy even with the windows closed. The location of the hotel is good thou, it is close to a tube station and within walking distance of a number of attractions.

Stayed for a night when on a quick 2 day trip to London. Hotel is less that 10 mins walk from Euston Station and right on the corner of Russell Square which is very handy. Hotel was a bit dated but otherwise clean and the staff very helpful. The room was fine. It was clean, bright and had a decent... More

We just got back from a stay at the Imperial Hotel, On arrival we where sure this was not the hotel we had booked as the front of the hotel looking onto Russel Square had a lot to be desired. The Curtains had stains and where stained yellow. (These need to be replaced) On first glances its not somewhere you... More
