The hotel location is the best value. A 2-min walk from the British Museum. A 5-min walk to the Holborn tube station of the Piccadilly Line. Room is small but clean. Overall, very nice stay!

A Nice Stay

I only stayed here one night, but it was a pleasant stay and I found the staff to be accommodating. The location is excellent. The hotel was clean and comfortable. I would stay here again.

If you expect something special, this may not be the hotel for you. But the location couldn't be any better, and that alone is worth the price.

Comfort and location for a great price

Can't beat the price for this location. Room bigger than most European/British hotels. Sharing a bathroom is the only con and honestly was never much of a problem for us.

Good basics, good price

This hotel was exactly as advertised and matched the reviews, which was great, because there were no surprises! It is a 5-7 minute walk to the Russell Square tube station in the Piccadilly line, which is super convenient. It took close to an hour from the airport on the underground. The street is quiet and the hotel staff are very friendly. As advertised, you have a shower in your room, but the toilet is down the hall, shared by a small number of rooms. If the toilet situation doesn't bother you, I absolutely recommend this hotel.

Could do much better

No lift, no en-suite toilet. It advertises itself as part of a group of hotels and obviously advertises the best features of the best hotel. Third floor with no lift when the 'group' advert stated a lift was not acceptable. £80 for a room here was too much. Won't be staying again.

Location Location Location

This hotel is ideally situated at the heart of Bloomsbury for the British Museum and University of London. It is a short walk from Russell Square tube station, less than ten minutes to the West End and 40 minutes to Heathrow. It is also walking distance to Euston, St Pancras (Eurostar) and King;s Cross mainline stations. It is also quiet at night as it is next to Russell Square gardens, (where we saw a fox!) The rooms have high ceilings and feel roomy. My only criticism is the size of the TV (small) and the skimping on the little luxuries. However, it was good value for money as long as you don't have breakfast which was ridiculously expensive (there are plenty of nearby cafes for this) and certainly classier than the "motel".

There is a nearby Tesco Express open until 23.00 where you can buy everything you need for breakfast, lunch or that bottle of wine in your room!

Basic but satisfactory

The staff was incredibly friendly upon arrival. However, the rooms, while cozy, left little privacy for the non-romantic travel partners. I think shower curtains would be a wonderful addition. Still, at the end of the day, it was a warm, clean place to which to return from a long day of touristing. Good value for area.
