Good hotel in Russel Square

Good morning everyone!

I hope I'm in the right place and you'll be able to help me! C:

My parents are thinking about visiting London in April, and they'd been quite adamant that they'd like to stay in a hotel in Russel Square. They visited London ages ago, and if I remember correctly the name of their hotel was "Russel Hotel". They loved the area so much they want to stay there again.

My point is, I want them to be able to experience again the "magic atmosphere" they always rant about ( C; ), but I'm not sure about the hotel anymore. Reading some reviews around here, I've seen that apparently Russel Hotel standard isn't the same anymore.

Since my parents just want to stay in the area and not really in a certain hotel, do you have any tips to offer me? C:

Many thanks! And please help me organize a memorable trip for them! C:

ps: I don't know if this help you, but we don't have an exact budget in mind... It'll be a short stay (maybe less than a week), so they don't really care if the hotel's not very cheap!

I doubt you could call any of the hotels immediately on Russell Square as 'special' . They often cater for the very budget conscious and/or large tour groups. Have a look at the Montague on the Gardens very nearby which is particularly strong on service, or the Chancery Court, a little further but if anything handier for transport and activities.

And maybe the MyHotel Bloomsbury which is only a few minutes walk from Russell Square, it's pretty modern and it's about mid priced. If they're not too budget concious I'd say PLW's suggestion of the Montague is a good one, it's very traditional and old fashioned.

Several years ago, we stayed at the Bonnington Hotel (now the DoubleTree by Hilton London West End). It is a short walk from Russell Square on Southampton Row Granted it has been several years since I stayed, but it was a nice place to stay - might be worth checking out..
