                • Couple
                  9.2

                  I took my husband on a surprise birthday trip to stay in London and watch a show, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience

                  the fire alarm on Saturday morning, it was our first lie in in ages - we have three small boys!

                • Single
                  6.6

                  excellent location, especially if travelling from/to Heathrow (very close to Russel Square tube station); the staff at reception and the concierge were extremely nice and helpful

                  the noise from the air conditioning outside; cleaning of the rooms seemed not to include details such as the closets, the windows and curtains, which were quite dusty

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  It's a beautiful hotel, right next to Russell Square tube station and very handy for the British Museum. The shopper's package was good value and included a good cooked breakfast.

                  We had a room that faced the inside of the building but the windows were frosted so we couldn't even see what the weather was like. Apart from that, the room was ok for the price at this hotel. Bar prices were also high.

                • Family with children
                  8.8

                  the staff were very nice, breakfast was good, location was excellent and the place was very nice too

                  the room was too hot - minimum temperature was 19 degrees. Also we put in a request for a twin room and none was available unless we paid £20 a night for an upgrade. i would be careful to inssit on knowing that the twin was guaranteed next time i booked

                • Older travelers
                  6.2

                  It was convenient for St. Pancras Eurostar and located in a reasonable area; the room was not too small and the shower worked; the bed was comfortable.

                  The restaurant was closed for the night we were there and no attempt was made to recommend anywhere else to eat.

                • Family with children
                  7.0

                  The breakfast had same menu for 7 days. They are not providing footwear to use inside room & toilet.

                • Couple
                  5.4

                  Excellent location.

                  The perfect marketing scam: this luxury hotel advertises rooms at a third of their original price, however the rooms in question are sub-standard. There may be beautiful four-star suites available, but do not expect four-star quality for the standard double room. You are paying for an overpriced B&B type room (without the breakfast) at 140 pounds per night. If you wish to have the Hotel Russell experience be prepared to pay the full price.

                • Single
                  6.2

                  could not get a reply when I phoned the desk for room service.

                • Group of friends
                  7.8

                  This hotel has the most amazing marble staircase and lobby.... you have to see it to believe it. The staff were the friendliest I have ever encountered in a big city. It is a perfect building in a perfect location for seeing the city and shopping.

                • Single
                  7.4

                  The iron was very handy and useful. It was in a convenient location in the city. The lobby area was very grand and beautiful.

                  The plumbing in the shower the were leaky. The furnishings were old. The TV was an older model.

                • Older travelers
                  7.0

                  The location was excellent and the staff very friendly

                  The wardrobe was too small to hang your clothes in.The pillows were too small for the bed.There were no biscuits with the tea making facility.The towel rail in the bathroom was too close to the sink and burnt you ! the floor boards above our room 625 were very creaky and kept us awake

                • Group of friends
                  4.2

                  Ideal to visit the city center and close to the tube station (Piccadilly line direct to Heathrow airport)

                  Double bed too small for two adults to sleep in. Breakfast room too small, I counted more than 30 people waiting to be sitted at 9 in the morning. No minibar (in a 4 star hotel!) Too expensive for what you get.

                • Group of friends
                  8.2

                  The staff instantly gave us a complementary upgrade when they were not able to provide the type of room we had asked for. The concierge was extremely helpful in sorting out alternative transport to the airport on the day of our departure when Tube closures made the original plan unduly difficult. And the bathroom was spacious and modern, a rarity as travellers to London will know. In sum, a lovely experience and excellent value for money.

                  I up-graded to an ex on arrival but was a bit disapointed witht the room for the money. Far too modern.
