The hotel location is convenient for the underground, closest is Russell Square on the Piccadilly Line, the hotel is about 4 or 5 minutes walk. Euston, St Pancras and Kings Cross are all within 10-15 min walk as is the British Museum. Hotel rooms are clean and functional, not very large though, bathrooms are also quite compact. We were in...
