The communal toilets were very clean. The staff were incredibly helpful. The...

As a group of three young women staying in London for a week, the Ruskin worked wonderfully. The location was fabulous, within short distance of four tube stops, and was literally a stone's throw away from the British Museum. The hotel staff was very friendly, and was always willing to help us out by giving us directions, maps, or restaurant...

I was staying in London for a 5 day training course, so I needed somewhere cheap to stay within easy reach of the training venue. Te Ruskin fitted the bill admirably, being a few minutes walk from Holborn (my venue being located out East on the Piccadilly Line). Being located right next to the British Museum, just off Russell Square...

First, the good news: The Ruskin's location is unbeatable, literally within the shadow of the British Museum. The staff is also very helpful, cheery, & attentive. The shower always had hot water, the water pressure was great, & the entire hotel was clean. Here are the tradeoffs: The rooms are quite small, the shower down the hall is miniscule (30...

I think this hotels best advantage is the location. In comparison to other locations such as Bayswater, Paddington or Sussex Gardens I found it a little bit overpriced.But then again, I didn't spend a lot of money on taxi's or buses, I could easily walk home after visiting theatres or restaurants in the West End. Everything was OK, it was...

This place is relatively inexpensive for London, but is still way overpriced for the barely-clean, uncomfortable room; strange shared toilet with no sink; shared shower with perpetually wet floor; and indifferent breakfast. Lovely location right by the British Museum, though. It would make a not-very-nice hostel for half the money.

Would definately return for a weekend again. This Hotel...

When on a budget in London, you can expect either bad service, questionable rooms or an unfortunate location. Ruskin has none of these. Actually, the staff is very helpful, rooms are clean and the street is quiet yet in the centre of London. Sure, the furniture is old and the floors are squeaky. But a table-served full English breakfast, 24...
