We did not get what we ordered!! We paid for Double bed And we got twin bed. "You did not ordered from us" the hotel Management told us. We have no obligation to you. The stuff were not nice and not welcoming. Small room, old, poor cleans

Although the location of this hotel is good, the hotel lost my reservation which resulted in me receiving a lot of abuse from the desk person who failed to see how any of this was his concern. I have never know anyone to start shouting at guests when all the guest has done is ask for some help. To make... More

My cousins and I found this hotel to be perfect for us. The location was great and within walking distance of restaurants, pubs and the British museum. It was affordable and because it was within our price range and the location was great we didn't mind some of the outdated furniture and such. Breakfast included is always a plus. In... More

Not a bad hotel. Staff are good and very helpful. Room is clean and comfortable. Food is reasonable. That's about it - no real stand-out qualities that make the hotel a cut above anything else. I suppose the location is ideal for the British Museum, or even a short walk down to the west end. If you can get a... More

Pleasant hotel close to Euston Station, and easy to get to the attractions and theatres if you don't mind catching a couple of buses which are easy enough once you get used to it. You can walk if your young enough. The breakfast was a good selection of English breakfast goodies

It is so sad that this great hotel with a such a good location , close to the British museum is so worn out and really being so dirty and shabby. Just by sitting in the entrance I ripped my dress on a worn out wooden chair. Our bathroom was dirty and STINKY.Our windows and doors were so filthy that... More

My girlfriend (a wheelchair user) and I spent 3 nights here after finishing a cruise. We chose the hotel because it was affordable and had a good location - ideal for the British Museum, and fairly close to the centre of London, with good bus links. We weren't expecting much for what we paid, but the hotel does have a... More

We stayed at this hotel before in Russell Square, executive twin room was clean and roomy. Very handy for the theatre and the British Museum, its a good basic hotel, the bar lounge is very good with nice friendly staff. My only concern is the staff in the dinning room at breakfast are probably better imployed in a funeral parlour... More

The entrance to this hotel is impressive. The service at the reception desk if ok, not too friendly but not arrogant either. When I asked for a map of london, I was given a black and white photocopied A4 paper - I did expect a better service. I had to ask for an internet password to be given one. The... More
