Great location for sight seeing, Russell Square tube station 100 yards away. Very quite, clean family room. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was excellent, lots to choose from. We would definitely use this hotel again and recommend to friends and family.

After looking at MANY other hotels for our chosen dates this one provided the be the best location for a family of four (two young children) to come direct from Heathrow with minimal hassle; the price was fair - this is London after all. We requested an early check in and despite being busy the previous evening we managed to... More

The Location of the hotel was just so perfect, Only had to take one line of the tube station from Heathrow and it's just a short walk from the Russel Square Station which made it more convenient for me having two luggage (and cheaper than taking a cab from the airport). Aside from the convenience of getting from and to... More

As a IHG Rewards member for this hotel group I was appalled at the standard of this property. It is like stepping into a school dormitory block and the rooms and amenities provided make you feel the same. The best thing about this property is its convenience to Tube and Heathrow line as well as a shopping centre opposite for... More

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
