This is a very nice hotel but it has the most aggressive and unfriendly manager I have ever come across, he threatened to throw me out by calling the police after I paid for 4 nights of accommodation and have the room key in my hand! Although I have been there a number of times before, I will never go... More

I agree almost totally with this reviewer! We are a really great hotel in the heart of the city with easy access to most attractions, restaurants and theatres with friendly staff, clean rooms, reasonable rates for the area and a superb full English breakfast. Where I disagree is in his disingenous explanation of what happened and blatant disregard for the... More

This was our second trip to the Harlingford. We went back the second time because it is so handy to the Russell Square Tube station. It's not fancy but quaint with clean room, nice tiled bathrooms and an above average breakfast room. It has a great little pub right around the corner, Lord John Russell Pub, which served us a...

I recently stayed at the Harlingford Hotel whilst attending a conference in London. The hotel room was well-designed, well-decorated, quiet and clean. The Wi-Fi access was invaluable and free. The breakfast was included in the cost and was freshly cooked to order. My one warning is that the shower stall was very small, and the shower pressure not particularly high.... More

Our family of four stayed here for six nights. We loved the great breakfast and polite staff. Appreciated the coffee/tea facilities in our room. We had a king size bed and two twins and felt the room size was adequate. Loved the cat and dog who always were around. Great to have a lounge to sit in during the evening.... More

It's the height of tourist season and I feared I would get a good hotel on a budget for a hen do. This hotel had a great geo location but I didn't know the hotel or the area but I took a chance based on the reviews and they are accurate. Contact room but with great faculties- hot shower, flat...

This is a beautiful hotel - the decor is amazing both on the outside and within, and the reception area is clean and well-presented. However, there is no lift, so be aware of this if you have mobility problems and cannot climb stairs. My hotel room itself was quite small but very clean, and all the facilities (for example the...

Great hotel to stay if you want to visit all the attractions around the centre of London. The rooms are very warm at night because there is no air-con in the building, but knowing the british weather this must only happen a few weeks of the year.

Despite no air conditioning and no elevator, this hotel offers comfort, service, cleanliness, great breakfast and an area second to none. They let you store your luggage on the first floor making it easier to climb the stairs, they provide us all the ice we want, the beds are comfortable and bathrooms spotless.

I booked here completely on chance as the hotels I normally use for work were full, and there was nothing left at the last minute. So my expectations were low, but I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is in a great central location and just a two minute walk from Russell Square station. The person on reception was very friendly... More
