We stayed in a lovely room within the hotel, clean & spacious room with everything needed for a long weekend stay, friendly & helpful staff, good location for Euston station & attractions. Would stay again.

This hotel is situated very conveniently near the Russell Square tube station in a quiet road. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the rooms clean and well furnished; mine had ample space though one of my colleagues found her basement room mainly filled by her bed. Some time after booking I wanted to change the room from a... More

Nice clean, quiet hotel right in the heart of London. Staff were very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was nice too. Continental is included in the cost but you can have a cooked English breakfast for a few more pounds. Again it was nice and fresh and the staff were quick to help if you needed any extra coffee/toast etc. Safes... More

My son booked this hotel for us as a present. So we had no idea about the place until our arrival. The staff were very welcoming and gave necessary information for our stay eg times of breakfast, location of bar and location of lift. Our room was lovely, large and scrupulously clean. It was at the back of the hotel... More

First time I have stayed in this hotel whilst in London for work based on a recommendation of a colleague. I usually stay at one of the ‘big-brand’ chains, however this was slightly cheaper and I felt I wanted to try something a bit different. Overall, I was very happy with my stay. Friendly reception on arrival and efficient check-in... More

Really good value in a great location. The room was very nice. The bathroom was especially nice, clean, with a big tub. There's no breakfast which is a little sad, but my main complaint was how much they charge for internet service! I'm used to hotels that provide free internet service and I believe that that's standard now in even... More

We visited London a few days after the New Year, so prices for hotels were pretty reasonable. This hotel is very conveniently located, it's closest to Russel Square tube stop but also very close to Holborn, which is the more convenient one to use I think. It's also a close walk to the Soho, Chinatown and Covent Gardens areas. The... More

Stayed for 2 nights as a wedding anniversary treat. Booked through the Grange Hotels website (this was the best price at the time, incl breakfast). On arrival, the greeting was warm and we were upgraded to an Executive room (108) - this was a very large room at the rear of the hotel overlooking the gardens. The weather in March... More

This hotel is the best value in London. We have stayed here twice now and on our second visit we were upgraded to a suite. The staff are helpful and efficient. The rooms are spacious and comfy. The breakfasts are plentiful. Now we have discovered this hotel we would not stay anywhere else in London. We would definitely recommend it.... More
