I spent three nights here, and overall was very pleased. The location is fabulous -- in Bloomsbury, around the corner from the British Museum; steps from beautiful Russell Square and wonderful bookstores; walking distance from pretty much anywhere in central London. I had a room facing the garden; it was amazingly quiet and overlooked a huge tree (plane?) of the same vintage as those in Russell Square. I would not stay in a basement or ground floor room. My room was very basic; carpet tired and not overly clean -- what a difference it would make if the owners replaced it with,say, engineered wood flooring (and the extra soundproofing that it will require).
For the price of the room, I would expect a folding luggage rack (or two), esp. since there was nowhere to put clothes other than a small wardrobe. I would have preferred a no-breakfast option as I have dietary restrictions and ate elsewhere. But the breakfast options were generous.
Wifi usually worked, but not always. Not the nicest hotel of my trip but for insanely expensive London it was a good deal; I plan to return.
