This hotel is ideal for those travelling on a budget. (07/08RPL) The hotel is a modern, concrete building. The hotel is located in Russell Square with the nearest underground station being Russell Square, which provides easy access throughout London. Also close by are Euston, King's Cross and St. Pancras railway stations. The British Museum, Covent Garden and many of London's theatres are within walking distance of the hotel.

just what I was looking for

Business trip. Needed good location. Got it. Wanted a good price. Got it. Wasn't looking for the Ritz....didn't get it. But, great value, clean, quiet, good location, helpful staff. Good breakfast deal. Free continental, for a couple of extra dollars (pounds) you can have a hot buffet. But, I am not a royal and find comfort in things being good...not elegant.

Excellent location

This hotel is next to an underground station with a direct link to the airport, and within walking distance from all sites in the center, plus next to a charming square. We stayed in a refurbished room with a tiny fixed shower head, no shower cap, and minimal furnishings. The beds were good and very clean, the room was warm, and breakfast was quite adequate

Ideally located but old hotel in need of serious upgrades. Breakfast quality is poor. OK for a short tay if you want to be close to an underground station and in the heart of the city.

They used to be better

I stayed at this hotel some years ago, and I can say they rendered a great value for the price. Without being exceptional, this hotel was perfect for the medium budget traveler. However, this time it seems that they are not getting better, but the other way around. The only thing you get in the bathroom is soap. The towels are thin and small. The English breakfast used to be great, but now it's not worth the price. The beds were not comfortable either. They are still a good option, but not nearly as good as they used to be. Stay at lower floors because you may be able to catch the wireless internet from the lobby.

A nice weekend stay

In town for the weekend and was pleased both with the location (tube stop around the corner) and price of the hotel. If I could change anything, I'd improve the continental breakfast and make free WiFi available in the rooms. Otherwise, was a very nice place.

Next to the tube

A decent but fairly pedestrian hotel that is located in close proximity to Russell Square tube station. The staff was very friendly and help.
