2 out of 5

Am a business traveller and often in London, and I usually try to keep away from the Russell Sq area for the noise and impracticality of it's underground connecgtions. I don't like the Russell hotel, it is very big and tries to resemble the Hilton or similar chains but it's just a tired hotel. So you have to pay for everything - Internet (UKP 15!), breakfast (UKP 20!) and so on, while the carpets in the room are a bit old and dirty, the lighting in the hallways is a bit yellow and similar remarks. One evening they didn't have any Internet vouchers left as well - so for any connectivity you had to go out into a coffee shop to get work done.

Really beautiful hotel, wonderful Victorian british hotel inside and out but with lovely modern room interiors, great british service, breakfast and more. Minutes walk from The British Museum, great pubs and nice restaurants away from the more touristy and commercial areas. Minutes walk from Euston Station. We loved it and will absolutely return.

We upgraded from the standard room (which was a little small and not too beautiful) to a mini suite. The latter was considerably better, although the first night, we couldn't get the heating to work (and neither could the staff). We were then transferred to a different suite, which was considerably better. Staff are nice and the location is great.

A very pleasant hotel centrally located. Within easy reach of the tube station which is located behind the hotel. Rooms are well-appointed. Breakfast has enough variety. Overall a good experience and will definitely return. Pricing wise could be a little over-price but HotelClub seemed to have better rates than others.

A splendid hotel with period features that make it feel so different. Ideally located for all that London offers. Very friendly staff who struck a balance between helping and allowing visitors space to relax. Clean, spacious room. Much enjoyed and appreciated the stay.

Inability to provide free internet in rooms a big minus. Refuse to pay £20 a day rip off. Some of the staff very pleasant and helpful, but not all, so only an average score

Walking distance to Covent Garden, British Museum and Theatre-Land. For those parts of London you can't walk to, it's right next door to Russell Square tube station...happy days!

This hotel is a beautiful old building which is conveniently located in central London. It is perfect for sightseeing and theatre trips. I was on a Business trip and needed to study in the evenings so I found it a bit noisy (traffic - building old - secondary double glazing installed but limited success) but would stay in the hotel again if I were travelling for leisure. The room was small and a little tired but the bathroom was spacious and had been refurbished. The staff were extremely helpful and very pleasant. Having said that, the performance of some staff was lower than I would have expected in a 4* hotel (lovely but not doing a fantastic job). The hotel also struggled at breakfast time as a large party was staying during the week that I stayed. Despite a few small negatives to my stay, I would definitely stay there again. Worth a visit just for the architecture!

Hotel very good on all counts, staff efficient and friendly, room clean with all the bits and bobs i.e. iron/ironing board, hair dryer, toiletries tea/coffee making facilities but no biscuits!. Noise has never been an issue. Location great, 10 mins. walk from Euston Station, close to Museum and 20/25 mins. to river, theatreland. Our hotel of choice when visiting London for the theatre and events.

Very convenient location. Buffet breakfast was very filling and staff were friendly. Beds were a little hard though and air-con could be more efficient. I would gladly stay here again.

The first room we were given was very hot and the A/C didn't work. I asked for it to be repaired and when I returned to the room later that night, it hadn't been fixed. I was given a new room which was nice, but I'd hate to think what I'd have to spend to get it normally. It's very close to Russell Square tube station which was good. I didn't think much of the hotel for the price I paid.

Our first room had a mould problem (something a hotel of this category shouldn't have), causing an allergic reaction, but we were given a new room right away.
