In front of Russell Park. Lots of restaurants to pick from around hotel. Staff at reception were helpful. Room was large and over looking park. There was one problem we had. the man behind the buffet was cleaning fallen cereal and crumbs in to the lid of the cereal container and dumping it back into the cereal tubes. We complained to front desk wrote a report and we were told to make complaint also to person incharge of Diningroom. He said he had no time. The next morning it happened again. What happens when something is dropped on the floor in the kitchen and hidden from view. I do not want to think about it. They lost my holiday stay in London for October, 2014.

We returned yesterday after spending two nights at The Imperial in Bloomsbury, just down the road from the British Museum. On arrival, we were advised that we'd been upgraded to an executive room, which was very comfortable and spacious. Cosy beds, nice bathroom with bath and shower and two wash basins. The breakfast room is a bit gloomy and like a canteen and the food on offer, whilst adequate is not exactly inspiring, just your bog standard English, no yogurts or quality juices etc available. Having said this, however, The Imperial offers excellent value for money and we will certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the courtyard.

I booked the Imperial through a travel site based on location. Russell Square is very convenient to the British Museum and not far from King's Cross / St. Pancras stations. A tube stop is near the hotel. A very nice small park is immediately across the street.
My single room was just that: a room just large enough to hold a single bed, with a small desk and a not very comfortable (and somewhat shabby) chair. ONE quite thin towel was provided each day.
London is an expensive city, but I've definitely gotten better value that the Imperial offered.

Returned yesterday after staying one night. Went to a conference in London but managed to fit in a show as well. Pleasantly surprised with hotel. We paid a little extra for executive suite and it was pleasant with a good sized bathroom. I had requested a quiet room and we were on the 5th floor and never heard any noise all night as we were at the back of the hotel.

Porters on reception very helpful, one young man advised us about which buses to catch and was very knowledgeable and helpful.

Would stay again.

Room Tip: Request room at the back for a good nights sleep as on main road and could be very noisy at front.

Great location for the price. Lovely staff and a very good breakfast. Only gripe my wife had was that the toilet which was separate from the bathroom had no wash hand basin and if you are a nurse that is a big no no !
