I stayed here for a week from Nov 8-16. The hotel has its flaws and is older(built in the 60s) but I know many people who have spent 2 or 3 times as much for a hotel in London and were probably not much more comfortable than I was at the Imperial. I found the room and public areas to be very clean...just worn in places. The fixtures/furnishings and tile in the bathrooms were probably redone in the last 5 years. The bathroom ceiling could stand a fresh coat of paint. This is a large busy tourist hotel and there was lots of wear and tear in places. The pluses were plenty of hot water, clean bedding with duvets, decent hot breakfast and coffee included, windows that open and free wi-fi. The breakfast buffet room was really busy in the morning but people were moved through efficiently...lots of staff to clear tables and replenish food. The location was great at the Russell Square tube station and a few blocks from the British Museum. The bottom line is that you could do far worse elsewhere at this pricepoint.

- The Imperial Hotel is the flagship of Imperial London Hotels. We're proud of it for a reason. Offering breathtaking views over London's greatest public square, it reflects every ounce of our dedication to service and value. Like all our hotels, the Imperial combines a remarkable location with the great facilities and friendly service of a family-run business. At the Imperial, though, while the price remains extremely reasonable, we add an extra dash of something special. The location is remarkable, connecting guests to the rest of London in minutes. In addition to the central Atrium Bar & Cafe, facilities include a casino and a gift shop. Restaurants and cafes offer plenty of choice to families and business travellers alike. Indulge in the intriguing delights of Coffee and Candy. Enjoy a late night at the Night and Day Bar, serving classic pub fare at great prices.
