I stayed for six days in a single room of this hotel. Its an expensive one, mainly because of being in central London. The single rooms aren't that great. The view from the room was dull buildings and construction work. The room had less space. But was clean. Room service and house keeping were prompt. Bathroom was clean with bath tub and hot water supply. The funniest part was this HUGE key that is probably like a "key chain" for small room key. Very clumsy to carry! But the best part was complementary breakfast! Full course english breakfast with juices and fruits and prompt service by staff in the restaurant was really nice. All in all, a little expensive but considering its location , a decent option. The double rooms, I have heard is nice and spacious.

Room Tip: Go for a double room.

The hotel is situated in a good location for the West End and The British Museum.The rooms at the front of the hotel are a little noisy (traffic) if the windows are open.Breakfast is buffet style and very good and there is service with a smile.Only problem is, if you run a bath keep your eye on it otherwise it overflows!!

If you want to stay in an inexpensive hotel with 1 or 2 people traveling, this is an excellent choice. I stayed 2 nights in a single room prior to a Contiki tour. I actually paid for a shared accommodation the second night, but they let me stay in the single room free of charge which was nice. It was a basic room with with little frills (Honestly, all I did was sleep in the room, it was all I needed). The location was great. It was around the corner from the Russell Square tube station, walking distance to from the British Museum. I could easily get anywhere in the city within 30 mins or less at all times of the day. There was a grocery store around the corner, which was very convenient as I could buy fruit or other small snacks at inexpensively.

A typical sixties built large hotel block adjacent to Russell Square. The quality of the room was really very good given the price. Breakfast is included and given that the breakfast room is enormous the service was fast and efficient. It has a well located bar overlooking the Square, the underground station is about 800 metres from the hotel. I think this hotel represents good value for Central London.

Hotel is now looking tired and could do with a makeover,however it is cheap and convenient.
Front rooms facing made rd can be noisy. Breakfast buffet good and more than adequate.
Area is convenient with good access to west end and sights also various restaurants within <2min walk.
