5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Clean, comfortable and efficient. I paid £135 for two adults for one night B&B, which is pretty reasonable in central London. Round the corner from Russell Square and only a couple of tube stops from Covent Garden makes the location great for all manner of things in the city.

Good hotel as what you normally expect from a Holiday Inn chain, but what is really better here is the proximity to the shopping parade at Brunswick as well as the close by Russell Square station. You're exactly right at the heart of Bloomsbury, brief walking distance to some of the University of London colleges, the Senate Library and the... More

I love the location of this hotel. We took the tube from the airport and it reached Russell Square station without the need to change tube line, it's a huge bonus when we there are luggages to haul. Hotel is about 5 mins walk from the station, near quiet residential neighborhood, overall feel very safe. We love that there is... More

I have to go to London quite often and this is one of the hotels I often choose. It isn't fancy, but it is in a good location with reasonable rates and friendly staff. The rooms are basic, but very functional. If you forget anything, just ask and they will help.

The hotel ameneties are functional with bedrooms well appointed. Poor food standard at breakfast where food was baked hard under the buffet heating lights. If you like hard bacon and rubber eggs then this is the place for you.
