The best thing about this hotel is its location right next to the Russell Square tube station on the Piccadilly line. This is convenient for direct tube access to Heathrow airport as well as other parts of London. It is in a quiet neighbourhood. There is the Brunswick shopping complex just opposite the hotel, with a large Waitrose supermarket and... More

The location of the hotel is brilliant when visiting London. When arriving to Heathrow just hop on to tube (Piccadilly line), sit back and relax. The journey to downtown London takes time so please be prepared for it. I'd estimate an hour to Russel Square, but at least You don't have to worry about changing transportation with luggage etc. I... More

Room was very old and bed was quite small but rooms where very clean. You need to pay for WiFi - unheard of this days. Friendly and very helpful staff. It is what it is and a good things is also the great location a half minute walk to the Russell Square tube. expensive and highly overpriced for its value.

I stayed in this hotel on Friday and was charged £195 for a double room. The carpet was stained, the paintwork dirty and the room very basic. The bed was uncomfortable and I could feel every spring of the mattress. I had booked for the Saturday night and the rate increased to £335. I cancelled the second night as I... More

Hotel is exactly what you would expect from a Holiday Inn. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, room rate was reasonable and the location is handy for that area of London. We stayed on one of the inner rooms overlooking the courtyard, so the view was uninspiring but it was much quieter than the street facing rooms. Lots of... More

I got a fantastic last minute rate to stay here and was not disappointed. Reception was busy when i arrived but extra staff were brought out & I was checked in quickly and efficiently. The staff were very friendly (same again for check-out). The bedroom was a very typical, old fashioned Holiday Inn room. If you have stayed in a... More

What a frustrating stay we had here for 4 nights last week. On 2 occasions, staff knocked and entered our room without waiting for us to answer. We had several other small 'niggly' issues which we discussed with the hotel manager and were resolved. Positives included the superb breakfast room staff who were ultra attentive and would refill coffee as... More

10 years ago I stayed at another Holiday Inn in London and it was fantastic. I didn't think another Holiday Inn could top that previous stay. This one did. When my husband and I checked in, the staff at the front desk were outgoing and funny; what a great first impression. The room was fantastic as it had air conditioning... More

We stayed here last weekend while attending a fantastic Kate Bush concert. The entire staff were very friendly and always acknowledged our presence, something that is often over looked. We booked online and everything was in order when we arrived. We were quickly checked in and before we knew it we were on the fourth floor entering a clean spacious... More
