The Ruskin is basically a guesthouse, and if you go in expecting that you'll not be disappointed. The breakfast wouldn't be accused of being generous in portion size, but was served by friendly and efficient staff. My room faced into the garden and was nice and quiet. My bathroom and shower were most definitely excellent - recently updated, clean, and... More

Booked the hotel Last minute as a base for a night out in London. Tube stations are within walking distance - I think Russel Square (Picadilly line) was nearest but Holborn (Picadilly & Central) and Tottenham Court Road (Central & Northern) line stations are all within walking distance. The room was very basic and in need of modernisation but clean... More

The hotel is very outdated in terms of colour schemes and 70s furniture, which were falling apart in some places, but the (shared) bath room was very clean and surprisingly modern...I did chuckle at one review which said "well tiled" but I'd have to agree! The single room was basic with an odd pink and white colour scheme and dirty... More

A good base for a few days. Not luxury but good for the price, especially considering the location. Gibe yourself plenty of time if you are walking or busing to Victoria station......it takes a while.

The Hotel Ruskin is a very nice hotel. The staff is attentive and the environment is always clean and well kept.

It is very close to the British Museum and within easy walking distance to the west... More

We often go to London for theatre, museums, galleries and bookshops. We prefer to spend our money on theatre tickets rather than a pseudo luxury hotel. For this purpose the Ruskin is a fantastic choice. Situated opposite the British museum, is within easily walking distance from major museums and theatre venues. Clean, private with very friendly staff and a cosy... More

The staff here could teach a thing or two to the bigger hotels in the area. Room had a shared bathroom but that was made clear on booking and basin in the room was therefore a bonus. Nice breakfast included in the price which makes this a real bargain. Why pay double or more elsewhere if you are only staying... More

When I booked this room for a short two day stay in London, I was first a bit leery because I couldn't find it on trip advisor… and who books anything without trip advisor!!! There are other Ruskin Hotels, but somehow I didn't find this until now. I booked pretty last minute (within 2 days), and the price for the... More

This hotel is located in the heart of London, across the street from the British Museum and a quick 10 minute walk from the Russell Tube station. Being so close to this tube stop allows you to be at any of the landmark tourist attractions in no time at all. Also, there are shops, restaurants, and a Tesco Market near... More
