After looking around for a room for myself, my partner and son, I found The Ruskin on trip advisor. It was one of only 3 places that I could find that let a 15 year old share a room. I read the other reviews and thought for the price offered we would give it a try.
I was very apprehensive as we have not stayed in many hotels over the years as we normally camp.
We arrived late which was not a problem. The owner gave us a local map showing where the hotel and tourist attractions were, took payment, gave us the room key and told us the wifi password and breakfast arrangements. We were in room 102 from where we could still use the wifi. It was newly decorated and had a double bed, single bed, double wardrobe, desk, sink, kettle and hair dryer. There were two large windows which faced the side of the British Museum (well worth a visit and free entry). There was a toilet straight across from the room and a shower room with another toilet next door to this. Both bathrooms were newly fitted out and newly tiled and both were also spotlessly clean. The bedroom and beds were all immaculately clean and very comfortable.
Breakfast is served in the basement and is cooked to order. If you want more than one egg, slice of bacon or sausage just ask. Along with the cooked english breakfast there are cereals, fruit juice, tea, coffee and toast.
The location is great as it is an easy walk to theatre land and Covent Garden and is also close to the tube and is on a bus route.
All staff were pleasant, polite and helpful.
We will return!
