Maybe a bad day, but let down by one of the worst breakfasts I've (not) eaten! I quite like the good value slightly seedy Georgian hotels in Bloomsbury, as long as you don't look for luxury and are happy with shared bathrooms they can be very good value and friendly. The Ruskin ticks these boxes, a bit run down but...

We needed a London hotel just for one night, with me heading to Kings Cross and my wife to the West End next morning. The Ruskin was perfectly located for our needs. And if we'd wanted to spend time in the British Museum, well that was literally over the road. As it was just for the night, we made do...

The hotel is in a renovated Georgian building. I was asked to pay in advance before even seeing the room, which was a bit disconcerting, but it turned out all right. I had a single that was small, clean, and quiet, and faced an annex to one of my favorite London attractions, the British Museum. The hotel is also only...

We stayed in a family room for one night. The room itself was very small (one double and a single bed) and is in need of refurbishment but it was very clean and comfortable. There is no tv and the attached bathroom is very small. We slept well and enjoyed our stay. We got stuck in the lift once when...

Anyone out there with a spare £250,000 wishing to finance a complete renovation project of what was once undoubtedly a fine Georgian building need look no further than the Ruskin Hotel. I use the word "hotel" in its loosest possible sense - furniture and fittings which should have been consigned to the skip in circa 1965 still adorn the rooms,...

Stayed at the Ruskin Hotel for 1 night and was really pleased with the location in Bloomsbury which is a nice area of London. In comparison to the other Hotels in the area at the price we paid of £69 for a double room with English breakfast it was very good value. We received a warm welcome when we arrived...

The staff were helpful and the place is good value for area Breakfast was very basic. The room was freezing and difficult to sleep in although the staff provided an electric heater (which helped a little). Old and dingy generally.
