I've stayed at the Radisson twice now within a couple of months. The staff are very friendly and the location is decent. You are not directly near a tube station, but Tottenham and Holborn are within a short walk's distance. There are plenty of convenience stores and food within easy walking distance and the British Museum is only a couple of minutes away by foot.
However, both times I've stayed here I've had trouble with other patrons. The first time the person in the room next to me would start smoking every night about 1am. Because there was a connecting door, my room filled with smoke and woke me up. When I called the front desk, nothing was done about it. I was told the second time that they could not ring the bell of the room due to the late hour. Both times rowdy patrons have also been a problem: yelling in the hallways late at night, loud parties. This trip when I called the front desk, these issues were addressed.
To follow-up on the smoking issue: I completed their customer survey after my trip and received an email from the hotel manager saying he had spoken to the staff involved and hoped I would give the hotel another chance. This is the first time a hotel has responded directly to a survey and I thought this was an excellent example of customer service. I was planning another trip to London, and did reserve at the Radisson. I requested a room without a connecting door and had a better experience, minus the loud patrons a couple of nights on my floor.
The rooms are nice, standard size rooms for Europe, fairly well organized and provisioned. My only major complaint is that all the lighting is overhead and very harsh, making reading laptop screens difficult due to the glare.
