Massive hotel fairly close to Russell Square underground station has economy in its favour, we only paid £60 per night B&B which for London is very cheap.
We were told it was twin beds but when we asked, we were given a double bed which was appreciated.
Fairly basic room and bathroom was clean enough. Old style TV but it worked OK.
The room in the middle of January was roasting hot, even with the window open 24hours a day, outside temperature was -1.
Our room overlooked the courtyard which was fairly quiet and we had little road noise. The one thing that lost it an extra star was at around 6am, somebody decided to move tables and chairs around on a linoleum floor, when I say move, it was a screeching, dragging noise that we heard, this was a ridiculous time of the day to start to shift furniture, I can only assume it was a cleaning room or staff rest room somewhere, I went into the corridor to investigate but it must have been coming from the floor about.
Don't get me wrong, for the money, I would stay here again.
Don't expect gourmet breakfast, it is toast, bread rolls with butter and jam. Juice, tea, coffee and a choice of 3 cereals. A cooked breakfast is available for £5 extra. The dining room was reminiscent of a school dining hall being very noisy.
One bonus is that the tour buses stop right outside the door and the hotel is central enough for most people's needs.
Wifi is available by going to reception and picking up a slip of paper with the wifi details on it.
