“Great Value & Nice Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

I came here for a private birthday party.
the room was decorated beautifully and the entire building is quite pleasant inside and the place is huge.
i found the staff very friendly and polite particularly on dealing with an extremely demanding host.
i would come back here for another party but i dont think it would be my first choice of somewhere to stay

I was apprehensive with my booking as the website said shared bathroom. However I was pleasantly surprise as the room had its own wash basin and shower and the toilet was literally next door and impeccably clean and well presented. The room was spacious by London standards, well appointed and comfortable. It is on a quiet street. The staff were always friendly and helpful. There is no elevator and it's a bit of a hike up two floors with bags and no porter was offered to us - so it helps to be young or young at heart. The location is fantastic, close to the fabulous British Museum and the West End theaters. We were able to walk most places or when needed catch the Underground at the nearby Russell Square station. This was great great value hotel for a tourist visit to London.

What a charming little hotel. I spent two nights in an on-suite bedroom. The room is big enough to comfortably accommodate a full size double bed, settee, two easy chairs, desk and a small table, with tons of space to spare. A huge window overlooks a secluded private garden. The bathroom is superb and newly fitted out. Everything works as it should. Very quiet. Delightful dinging room on the ground floor with a really great view of the street. I went for the Continental breakfast which offered an excellent selection. The staff were all friendly and extremely helpful. The hotel is conveniently located on a quiet short road between Russell and Bloomsbury squares so there is minimal passing road traffic. Apart from the regular excellent transport facilities it’s an easy walk to many tourist and shopping attractions.

Having to come to the area of Bloomsbury on a regular basis, I suppose we have meanwhile stayed in more or less all of the Hotels there. We felt a bit ambivalent towards this Hotel. Although the room was nice, spacy and quiet, it was in the basement and with the steep flight of stairs going down and the fire door swinging back into your face, a bit difficult to access. We missed a hand shower in the bathroom and the window and its frame looked as if it had not been cleanded for a long time. We were promised a daily newspaper but did not get it and would have loved a complimentary biscuit with the morning cup of tea we made in the room.
Apart from that, good location, friendly staff, a bit overpriced for what it is but generally speeking quite OK.

Room Tip: ask for a room with bathroom ensuite

Expensive but presumably typical of London. No en-suite toilet, shower was poor, paint peeling, tv right next to sink and dodgy remote control for the tv! Student accommodation! Bed was comfy so not all bad, but price did not include breakfast, which is ridiculous. Avoid.

We stayed here for most of our trip to England. The rooms were clean and safe. The toilet was down the hall and was very clean and nice. The showers are in the room and ours was exposed to the room (not in a private room). I like the tea cubby and having a nice sink available in our space. We didn't dine in the hotel but really loved taking our morning meals at a cafe in Russell Square. The route seemed less confused though about the same distance to go to the hotel from Russell Square rather than Holborn Station. (This may matter only to those new to the city.) It is a short distance from The British Museum and an easy place from which to tour the city.

Stayed for three nights for a course, staff were helpful enough but the hotel itself is dated and in need of a refurb. They have communal toilets which I didn't expect in a hotel these days. The rooms were also incredibly hot, unbearably hot. I would not stay here again

Sorry your expectations were not fully satisfied. This is a listed building with certain building constraints, this is reflected in the room tariff. We do have very similar hotels in the same road with all rooms fully ensuite.
