This hotel had great ratings however I was displeased. I think it's because I was sequestered into the "basement". People talked about nice big rooms and mine was teeny tiny. I guess for the price of $175 Canadian I expected something better but London is quite expensive. The location was very good, being right by Russell Square and very close to tube and bus stop. The hotel had an elevator and the wifi was great, however the room was just dingy. It was clean but with the wall paper coming off on every wall it just seemed gross and dingy.

Looking for something central and with bit more space than the usual London hotel bedrooms, be it a budget or an expensive hotel, we decided on the Grange Portland. The larger rooms here are not cheap but more than worth it for the huge amount of space, the enormous bed and curious self catering facilities - curious because breakfast is included in the tarriff, and who wants to cook on holiday. At booking, I indicated a preference for a room at the back and on an upper floor. On arrival, there was no mention of this request and we got a second floor room facing the road. Yes, it is noisy, but at night there is minimal traffic and wax ear plugs work wonders. All previous reviews commenting the need for maintenance are correct although much of what we saw was minor - a spot of paint, a bit of glue to stick the wallpaper back on, mould treatment in the bathroom - and the level of cleaning seemed high during our three day stay. Breakfast was excellent, varied and abundant. We paid extra for the cooked breakfast, which was huge (just avoid the vegetarian sausages). I would settle for the cold breakfast - even on a busy Sunday morning it was well stocked. If we could be sure of not being given a basement room, we would definitely consider coming back to the Portland.

Quaint hotel with Very friendly staff. Room was large and clean. The bathroom products are of very good quality. Located in a safe and central area of London, it’s so easy to walk to so many areas of the city. You are within 15 minutes of most major attractions. Right around the corner from the British museum. We would definitely stay here again when we return to London. How often can you find a hotel with a king size bed?

We stayed here for 1 night on 14 September 2019 at a cost of £ 194.35 expecting something reasonable for this price we were bitterly dissapointed. On arrival we were told our room was number 3, but no m,ention of which floor, after travelling up and down in the lift we eventually arrived in the basement to find room 3. The room was dark so light were required even at mid day, and with the light on anyone walking along the footpath outside could see into the room. To bathroom had a faint pefume of sewage the toilet seat was broken, and the bath had numerous chips in the enamal. Cleaning is obviously a problem for the staff, as lots of dark short hair was found within the room and bathroom, on one bedside table this was within a gelatinous matter, that you could not determine if it was a human secretion or not. Being directly under the reception area the noise level was totally unacceptable and I was awoken at 1.45 am by noisy foot fall on the floor above All of te fittings were tired badly worn or miss matched, but the worst problem was the leaking electric kettle which was positivly dangerous and my wife was close to being electricuted.
