Good value for central London. Had all standard amenities, Clean, efficient, no fuss. Nice leafy location. Annoyingly only two teabags and two milk sachets. Fixed shower a minor irritant. Wifi only in the lobby.

This is a huge hotel, but there was no queueing at Reception or breakfast, and staff were all pleasant and helpful. Our room (No.250) was the quietest hotel room I've ever stayed in, and was spotlessly clean; the only down side was the overpowering smell of disinfectant. Amenities in the room were basic (no shampoo, shower cap, etc., just tiny... More

We visited this hotel with friends and we did not book it, we were a party of 18 and the hotel was chosen for location and price. Personally I would have paid more for somewhere nicer like The Russell over the road. Walked in and seemed nice, close to Euston station and main amenities though when we went to our... More

The hotel is full of contrasts. On the one hand the hotel management tries to present classical hotel culture with all the standard hotel services, but in fact it is illusion. First of all, the hotel is inappropriate for business and sightseeing purposes, too. Why? Because of absent wifi service in the rooms and not reliable internet connection in the... More

We chose this hotel for a short break following our daughters November wedding. One of the reasons was the proximity to Kings Cross, it's an easy 10 min walk from the station. Checking in was simple and fast, we were given a voucher for a free evening meal in one of several restaurants, affiliated to Imperial Hotels, the chain that... More

Recently spent a weekend at the Tavistock hotel, a lovely old hotel with bags of character and loads of lovely art deco features. The lobby and dining room especially which are lovely. The staff are really nice and very helpful. The breakfast was a buffet self service, and had everything you would expect from full English breakfast all of a... More

Lobby and dinning room are very nice. Service is good. Rooms are quite modest, no shampoo and it was strange.... Space in the room is good, old TV. You sould choose high floor as the stteet below is quite noisy. Excellent location, direct train from Heathrow to the hotel! Very convinient by tube to any location. No WI-FI in the... More

We recently spent two nights at Tavistock hotel. We were a bit unsure, reading other reviews, but it was a very nice stay. As others have said, the Art Deco entrance and lobby is very nice, we requested a quiet room, which, though not in art deco style, was brand new, warm enough, and spotlessly clean. We also requested shampoo/shower... More

Overall the hotel is great, well situated near the public transports Russel Square underground and some buses that will take you to the center of London. The staffs are hospitable, very friendly and well accommodating. I will recommend this hotel for travellers (families, friends, business and couples) who want to visit London.
