              The location was excellent. I work in holborn and was easily able to walk in. Covent garden very close.

              The attitude of the staff when the boiler failed. Discourteous and off hand. Almost made me feel that it was my fault. No offer of complimentary breakfast, reduced rate. Not even an apology

              Hotel convenient for tube and acces to London

              perfect locations to the tube station, picadilly line. the room where i have stayed was all new, and comfortable- which is perfect for this type of Hotel. I would stay here again.

              the view from my room was the wall of next building

              7.8

              This hotel is ideally placed for Russell Square underground station and very central for both tourist and business traveller.

              Nothing to dislike about the hotel.

              the staff were very helpful espically the girl dont no her name that went out of her way to show us how to use the bus machine she knows who she is think that a breakfast should have been included for the price that i paid

              Could have got better for cost

            • Family with children
              9.6

              Very comfortable spacious room. Good comfortable beds. Good full english breakfast. Staff attentive but not obtrusive staff.

              I must say that our stay was during renavation work on the main reseption area, this did not detract from the comfort of our visit, but I did have some reservations about using the service lift..

            • Single
              8.8

              The friendliness of the staff - very unusual in London

              No - the hotel's public areas are under renovation so I have discounted this from my review. Once they are complete it will be superb.

            • Single
              9.6

              The staff were wonderful. I booked and had paid for a single room. All single room hotels in London are shoe boxes. The staff upgraded me to a double room and put me in a quiet part of the hotel because I was staying for 6 nights and needed somewhere quiet to work.

            • Single
              8.8

              Room was clean and maintained nicely. Breakfast had a nice combination of foods.

              The room was lovely. the view was garbage but that's london

              in the middle of a refurb

            • Single
              7.4

              The rooms are really nice, by London standards, especially the bathrooms. Renovation work in the lobby spoiled the first impression, but I knew that when I booked. They say it will be ready in November.
