In the downside, the bathroom is a bit small and the room was just too hot, i could not managed to change the settins of the heating. Moreover, the hotel...

The hotel located near Russell Square tube station. However, it not that far, it took not more than 10 minutes to walk. The room was quite tidy, old but clean. The bathroom was small if compare to other Mercure. Staffs were friendly. Breakfast is good.

This hotel met my expectations for a clean hotel with comfortable beds at a reasonable price. The location is ideal with short walks to two stations on the Piccadilly line. The breakfast is terrific and Marco's utilizes the breakfast area at night offering delicious meals and a nice wine selection. I would definitely stay here again.

Very happy to realise just how handy this was for a visit to London following a very long train journey with delays. Around 15 minutes after the train got into King's Cross we were in our hotel room having walked. The welcome at reception was warm, and the message which had been left for me was delivered promptly. Room quite...

Friendly, helpful and welcoming staff at reception. We requested a quiet room near the top of the hotel and they accommodated this very well. The room was clean, tidy and comfortable with everything you'd need for a short stay. The location is fantastic, a short walk from Euston and close to several tube stations. Will be booking again in the...

I'm an Accor member and usually stay at the Mercure London Bridge when I'm in London but needed to be over on Holborn for an early meeting so decided to try this place. The room (402) was dated, had a frosted glass window which when you opened it looked on to a wall and had a very old looking wall...

Comfortable hotel in a good location for theaters, markets and attractions. Staff friendly and helpful and breakfast good and substantial with a wide variety of choice. Plenty of good and reasonable priced local restaurants, bars and good old fashioned public houses with excellent craft beers and real ales.

We stayed here two years ago and finally made it back for another visit. Everything I said in my previous review still stands and I couldn't fault any aspect of our stay. The reception experience on check in and check out was smooth and swift but very pleasant. The breakfast certainly set us up for the day and we could...

The hotel is clean and staff very professional. The small size of the rooms and limited bandwidth of Internet has no importance if you spend the day outside. But what is most important and appreciated is the location : close to Russell Square Underground station, close to British Museum, a handful of minutes from Covent Garden and Charing Cross. If...
