Tube station was just around the corner (Russell square) which was handy for central london. We had tickets for the bodyguard at the Dominion theatre (15 min walk from hotel), would recommend this show. Overall... More

We always stay here when we visit London. It is in a great location - it's just around the corner from the Russell Square subway stop, is only a short distance from King's Cross Station and is a block away from The British Museum. There are lots of good restaurants in the area and it's in a very walkable part... More

Some areas of the hotel are a little tired although the bedroom was clean and well presented. The bath room was fine with a good shower. The downside was the continuous notice, all night too, from the chimney nearby which sounded like a noisy air conditioning unit. The breakfast was good although luke warm and the breakfast room was very... More
