I stay with Accor all the time but usually stay with their Novotel brand. I found this hotel and was pleasantly surprised with the quality. Very nice rooms, small but nice and I loved my little gift on arrival. Staff were very nice, in particular the reception team.

Friendly welcome at reception.
Room was a good size with modern decor and clever lighting (a light in the bathroom would come on as you got to the door - saved fumbling in the dark as is usually the case in a strange room).
This is a great location for both the West end, Kings Cross & St Pancras - easy walking distance to both.
Would defintely stay again.

Admittedly, we had just left one of the most beautiful hotel suites we'd stayed in, in Bath to spend three nights here during an expensive London Marathon weekend. It was always going to be a hard act to follow but the room was small and dark and we couldn't get the free wifi to work once during our stay. (But we could get onto the Thistle's next door). Staff were friendly and helpful and apologised about the wifi and did follow up, so well done there. The location is nice, quiet, safe and central.

An old friend had forgotten my phone number but tracked me down in the hotel and a message was put through the door so we could reconnect. Impressive service.

The automatic light in the bathroom is genius and I wish more hotels would have these so you don't have to flail around looking for the light in the middle of the night.

Nice small hotel with friendly personnel. Good breakfast and good service. Small rooms though and WiFi access worked only once during three nights spent in hotel. I might visit this hotel again but for business trips one really needs a working WiFi connection.

Nice little hotel that made an ideal overnight stay. I chose the hotel more to do with location than anything else. I was running the London Marathon the day after and wanted somewhere well connected, but also where I could go exploring the afternoon before. It was perfect for that - which may explain why there were other runners staying there.

It is just a short walk to the British Museum, where I spent a few hours.

Staff were very friendly and room was very clean and obviously been refurbished relatively recently. TV had a big range of satellite channels, the only downside being there were some that didn't stream very well. A small problem.

The bed was very comfy and I slept really well ready for the next day.

I was very worried booking this hotel for my friends 40th birthday. I was very relieved with its location as it is situated a few minutes walk to Russell square tube station and we could get to where we wanted to get to within three stops on the tube. The hotel was the friendliest and cleanest hotel I've stayed in. The breakfast was very fresh with good quality food. This made my whole stay and weekend one to remember. Would totally recommend it.
