I stayed at the Russell from 4-10 October and it was fine. My one and only issue (and this is significant) was the height of the bathtub off the floor. I my room (706) the step up from the floor into the bathtub was steep and there was no bar to steady me as I stepped into the tub to shower. I am 49 years old, and I suspect that if I were 60+ I would have had great trepidation in using the tub to shower, particularly since on the reverse trip the bathroom floor was wet and slippery. Otherwise the room was small but quiet and wholly satisfactory. The hotel is in a great area, diagonally across Russell Sq from the British Museum and only a few steps from the Russell Sq tube station. The hotel bar was terrific ... everything one would hope in a fine English hotel bar. If it were not for the situation in the bathroom I would easily have given it a 4 star rating for location and value.
