Booked this hotel for a nearby conference in June 2014. The hotel is a short walk from Russell Square station, and had a quick check in process. The corridors are decorated in an old 80's style, and the rooms are sparsely decorated. I had a single bed, desk, chair and sink with two lights. The bathrooms are shared between corridors.... More

This hotel has been our London budget hotel of choice for the last 10 years and we enjoyed returning here July 2014. It is the budget option in the Imperial chain of hotels and can be booked from their internet website. For an astonishingly low price for London (we paid 66 pounds for a double room for two), you get... More

Nice hotel have stayed on several occasions but a shame the pub as gone and is now a coffee bar as was looking forward to a pint and it was the cheapest pub in London so disappointed that it was no longer part of the hotel. Please bring the pub back

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for a whole week. The room was fairly clean, no odd smells, the beds were very soft, and we could feel the springs in our backs when sleeping. Not that pleasant, but it was a good nights sleep anyway. No loud noises, except when guests slamming the doors in, which happened quite... More

I was a little apprehensive about my stay at the County hotel after having read some of the reviews on here. 'Grumpy staff' 'Uncomfortable beds' etc. Yeah, right. So why was I greeted with a big smile at reception both on arrival and check-out? I'm sure all the grumpy staff I read about go on leave when I travel! The... More

Hotel is fine, very dated and dusty but beds and toilet facilities are clean and suitable. Fantastic location, ten min walk from Kings Cross and two mins from . Euston We walked to Camden in about...
