Excellent location with easy access to both Russell Square and Holborn Tube stations. Lots of very good local pubs and eateries and only minutes away from the British Museum. My room was fairly large by English standards with a very nice bathroom and very comfortable bed. An excellent breakfast with a good selection of both cooked and cold items was available and included in the room rate. My stay was short so didn't note any problems whatsoever.
Good location. Historic building with attractive public spaces. Good shower with adequate water pressure. Although my room charges were fully prepaid, the front desk clerk insistent on selling me breakfast, which I did not want, and in putting a 50 pound per day hold on my credit card, even though I said I was not going to use any of the hotel's restaurants. Difficult to get into the room because a large cupboard had been situated directly insider the door, almost blocking the passageway into and out of the room.
Excellent location, great staff
big bathroom and unique decoration of the room. there was no fridge and safe box in the room. there is no concierge most of the time. staff are not professional.
The hotel has an excellent location and a very nice atmosphere. I also enjoyed the restaurant recommendations made by the concierge. The room was a bit noísy (I lived on the second floor).
Hotel room was warm and comfortable, as the weekend weather was poor it was nice to get back to an inviting room. Delay in breakfast - although once we got fed it was great.
The size of the Junior suite was wonderful! The room was a little old and had some cracks in the wall joints. They didn't have any pull in area if you arrive by car. We weren't aware of this from the descriptions and had to drive around the area to find a parking garage and then roll our luggage a few blocks to the hotel.
Old stile nice people, good food Very very small room, breakfast needs more item
The food was excellent, the staff most helpfull. The first room offered was very very poor ,we had to pay extra to get an half decent room
the three consierge gentlemen we spoke to were very helpful Staff maybe might smile. If applicable make sure you get your Harrods voucher. We had to ask even though it was included in our package.
Central location, comfortable large room with large tub and shower, full breakfast, friendly helpful staff
The location was excellent on Russell Square with a Cafe Nero and Pret a Manger next door. The breakfast was excellent and I would highly recommend adding that to your package. The bathrooms were some of the largest I have seen in Europe. The staff at Hotel Russell did not measure up to the overall customer service I experienced in England as a whole. They are less than accommodating to guests who booked through discount websites and treat guests who booked directly with them better. The interior is very dated and needs renovation. My friends room on the first night had a very strong cleaning chemical odor. It was unbearable for them because they have some sensitivities. The hotel was unable to move them to another room and we ended up switching rooms with them. The wifi at this hotel is spotty at best. I would not refuse to stay at this hotel again but I would probably avoid it.
Helpful and friendly staff.
The room was a good size, nicely decorated, clean. Facilites included TV, stereo, air conditioning which is very important. Bathroom clean with nice toiletries.
The staff are extremely helpful and location is excellent. The television selection is poor and internet costs far too much.
Good location Small rooms with tiny bathrooms - adequate for a single traveler on business with no luggage but not a Five star hotel and nothing like the pictures on the website.
The staff were absolutely first class from the moment we walked through the door from the booking in people at reception, the bar staff and chambermaids.excellent No complaints
The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities. The bathroom was very small but that didn't really bother us. Despite the double glazing and being on the ninth floor, we heard the noise of the traffic all night.
Good quality fitments Small room
Location of hotel was fairly near the tube station and other faciltites nearby When I checked inot the hotel, I had to wait a long time whilst they were checking my booking.I Needed an extra bed and they offered to upgrade me to a family suite afor another 103.50pounds. They then charged me 724.50 for the 3 nights stay.I Realised later that they had overcharged me by 10 pounds because the original booking was 611 pounds. When I queried them the next day,I had to go through 2 other staff before they refunded me 10 pounds overcharge. I hope I have not been billed twice ie once by my initial booking through your website and then by the Grange Holborn hotel.
Staff were very friendly and prompt Room was noisy being on the main road at a junction. I think if two people had been in the room there would have been a lack of space around the bed area as it was a funny shaped room.
Staff was very nice and helpful. The swimming pool is big, facilities are clean. The room was not big but sufficient for a familly with 2 kids. The bathroom was clean, with a bathtube but the w.c. inside.The breakfast was delicious, but a bit expensive. A pity that the swimming pool has restricted hours for kids when you have kids but it must be appreciated for those who have not.
Spent about a week in London and stayed at the St. Giles. No regrets. Close to the West End action and much cheaper than some in the area. This hotel is also frequented by bus tours - Ugh. The room was good though small (almost Japanese hotel room small). We did not partake of their restaurants and went to a much, much better buffet down the street for breakfast. Concierge staff was very helpful
Location and cleanliness are the only positives about my stay. Poorly operating lifts. Bathroom so small. TV inoperable. WiFi requires £5 payment daily by purchasing a code from a vending machine. Long lines at check in. Long line at luggage check/collection. Never again!
The location was the only positive. The room was about the size of a closet, and everything smelled.
Access to tube trains This hotel is not a star hotel. Rooms are very small
Very over priced
Food location staff , all works well , I would love to go back but when all the work is done so it'll be that bit more comfortable for me The hotel lifts were very slow and 2 was not working at all , also there was work being done for the new reception area ! As I have sciatica very bad , It was very difficult using the stairs and temporary steps the hotel put in place !
Location. Location. Helpful and pleasant staff. Cold room in morning. Too few lifts. Lack of TV channels.
we had a great visit. The staff was impeccably polite and helpful. the elevator situation was pretty bad. I don't know if some of the lifts weren't functioning or what, but we ended up taking the stairs most of the time
location choice of food in restaurant
A nice complimentary breakfast the following day. We booked a table for 4 in the hotel's Italian restaurant for Saturday 27/11/10 at 5pm in order for us to attend a show. When we were ready to eat we were told that we didn't have a reservation as this restaurant did not open on a Saturday night. We were however placed in your Japanese restaurant without too much bother. Better communication with guests would be better.
Concierge people are very nice. Single room has no place for luggage
The hotel is in a good spot, next to oxford street. breakfast was an extra £9.95 each per day.
Modern clean smart rooms with all amenities in an excellent location close to St Pancras and Kings Cross stations plus friendly staff. Nothing to not like
Bed was amazingly comfortable with great sheets. Bathroom perfect, breakfast amazing. check out was a bit busy.
The location of the hotel was fantastic and we had great views of the city from our room. We were given a room with disabled access which was fine. The only complaint I have about the 'wet room' is that the water did not drain away and the floor was a gigantic puddle and we had no way of getting the water out. Also, are 3 shower heads neccessary for one bathroom??
It is walking distance from the train station, great location. The staff is very helpful and very accommodating. The breakfast was the best I've had in Europe during my 3 month stay. The bathrooms are very modern and the whole hotel is very clean. The hotel is great, but the beds are a little firm. There was one lady at the front desk that was polite but cold. Other than that everything was great.
Only stayed one night to catch the train to Heathrow the next day. Great location in proximity to Kings Cross St Pancras. Trendy lobby with DJ playing on Friday night, not too loud though. Beds were great, showers were nice, all modern decor. Morning breakfast buffet in the restaurant is great. Overall it's a nice clean place to stay for a night or two. I'd be back.
The Pullman St Pancras had nice, high-end finishes in the bathroom and the bedroom, as well as in the lobby. People have complained about the wifi, but we actually had a pretty good experience with it; we were able to make a call using their wifi. All in all, a pretty comfortable experience. This is in a pretty noisy part of London (Euston Rd), which means that there are a lot of pubs (which can get rowdy), cars honking horns, ambulance and police sirens, etc.; even though we were on the 12th floor, the noise from outside woke me up often during the night. Also, the bathroom door does not shut tightly; it leaves a gap between the leaves of the door, so any noises (etc.) from inside the bathroom are audible to your significant other in the rest of the room! Not particularly romantic! And the thermostat was difficult to program; quite a few times, it would show 22 degrees C and be programmed for 18, but would still put out warm air, which makes no sense.
The location is central and the views from the top floors are stunning. There are many excellent restaurants nearby.
Staff was ready and willing to help at any time. Bed was very comfortable and room was spotless. Wonderful breakfast with many options. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The location was ideal, transportation was near by. The staff was friendly The bed was hard!!
hotel was a peaceful experience staff all very helpful especially the restaurant manager. I did leave behind some of my clothing and wanted to arrange these items be posted to my home address? 26 Glencoe, Whitburn West Lothian Scotland EH47 8AR Central location, cleanliness, up to date style & furniture.
Very handy for Eurostar Toweld old and hard. Shower door didn't fit well
Lo recomiendo 100%
Room was clean and right next to the Russell square underground entrance. Room was small, wifi wasn't free and the room smelled, but in their defense we didn't ask to change rooms. Kind of pricy for a holiday inn.
The hotel provides a consistent level of frienliness, efficiency and comfort. it is well placed for shopping , sisgt seeing and business (city of London banks etc).
The hotel is very well located, close to tube stations. the room is small and facilities require renewing. some broken (faucet, door handle etc.). price is very high and is not a decent return for the money
Friendly, polite and helpful staff, clean facility. Good location. Noisy room location above delivery dock,construction noise one night until 11 pm. Extremely poor acoustics in restaurant (am acoustic specialist in N. America) very hard surfaces,floor,walls,ceiling and other multiple reflective surfaces make for most unpleasant experience resulting in avoiding restaurant second time.
Easy access of subway, restaurants&pubs and shopping center No fridge in the rooms so no possibility of drinking cold beverage
it was coveniently situated for Radisson Edwardian Hotel, which is where we needed to be that evening poor service in the bar, exorbitant charges for drinking water, spartan room and bathrom, noise in the morning from street and plumbing
Hassle free check in and out. Very convenient to where I was working in Gordon Square, Bloomsbury and blessed by a 24 hour car park adjacent to the hotel itself and with shops very close. The room was without half of its secondary glazing which meant that it was particularly noisy due to the proximity of nearby pubs late at night into early morning. Reception acknowledged this aspect on departure but failed to offer an explanation for the absence of part of the system.
Great room and food None
Excellent location Staff did not understand a small glass of wine and kept serving and charging for medium glasses
The security arrangements were good - eg lift doesn't work to go to upper floors unless bedroom key card is inserted. The breakfast was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful. I thought the bedrooms were rather small for a 4-star London hotel
Proximity to underground and centre of London .yet quiet. This was a shopping trip so convenient for Oxford St and Marrlebone Road. Considering how small the room was, it was quiote well equipped. Double bed was so small. Asked if there was a room with larger bed, but told they were all the same size. Hotel was full so no option to change to two singles. Not good for anyone over 5ft 10 inches.
The location and cost Rooms are very small, though are typical for London. Room was on a very very noisy road and difficult to sleep
Location and comfort of room. Bathroom was decent size.
The Hotel was an excellent location for Covent Gardens only 5 mins walk dow the road. The staff were excellent couldnt do enough for you ven upgraded our room for free. Would def return. There was nothing we didnt like, the breakfast was lovely,hotel was so clean and the staff were Fantastic.
Rooms are hot and small.
very pleasant stay, just right for the theatre and the shops!
The location, very quiet, relax. The spacios of me beedrom was little
Location My room
Excellent breakfast buffet included in room rates. Hotel staff are attentive and helpful. Scoff & Banter restaurant/bar has limited dinner menu and cocktail options.
The attention to any and all details was excellent. The staff in both the front and the restaurant were very friendly and helpful. Nothing
Location Slow lifts
Location and friendly, informative staff
The service was very good and SKY rugby was a bonus! The room could have been bigger and the air-con was a bit noisy.
The hotel staff was helpful with solving problems that was generated by Kayak/Hotel.com (wrong number of beds in room) while booking. Location is excellent. For a big family like us that needs place to "gather" together the lobby was very useful. Booking by Kayak/Hotel.com generated problems. Number of adults and children per room was not deliver to the hotel. When I asked Hotel.com to change the reservation through the website , NO respond. Rooms are a bit small.
Breakfast service is very nice. The room was extremely small, poorly furnished and noisy.
Location is great. Bed was fine and apples were a nice touch. Gym was okay. Staff was horrible. There were months in the closet--I killed three. They did a lousy job cleaning in general. The sinks and counters were not even wiped down. There was toothpaste/grim residue not wiped up half of the days I stayed there. Dirty dishes owned by the Hilton were left for, literally, a week. The cleaning staff tossed my water bottle even though it was with wrapped up my clothes on top of my luggage and then denied it. I tried to explain the problem with needing a size of plastic bottle for security. They made a lame attempt to make it right after two hours of waiting and complaining, but they could not be bothered to listen or understand the actual problem, so the solution did not work. Great location, but I would never go back. There is no accountability.
location for theatre and access to transport system obviously unavoidable but there was some building work taking place to the hotel
access to city centre
Hotel is clean and comfortable. Rooms are well appointed. Location is superb. Good value for money in a city renowned for overpriced hotels. Check-out was a bit haphazard, otherwise no complaints
Good size room Renovating the place, no heating in room
We arrived to the builders in reception..complete with hard hats and hard viz jackets! There had been no mention of the major refurb going on when booking. I'm sure it will be very nice when finished, but not really the first thing you want to see when entering your hotel.. I'd received a call the day before check-in to see if my booking for two colleagues double rooms (for single occupancy) could be changed to single rooms - I said not, particularly as payment was immediately taken from my card two/three weeks before on booking and the rooms were for business clients. Although I was then told 'ok..not a problem..' this was ignored...and they were put in to single rooms on arrival!
Location was convenient Was cold, old and dirty
Location of hotel for bars, restaurants and shopping all available within walking distance. Room clean and spacious compared to other London hotels I have stayed in. The fact that there was building work in progress and scaffolding in situe which I understand from reviews on other sites has been going on for quite a while at this hotel.
Excellent time at this hotel! Everyone was very friendly! Nothing :)
The staff was exceptional...friendly and helpful....willing to go out of their way to assist. Would stay there again. Gym was excellent and the breakfast was very good.....breakfast was available until 11AM on weekends. Met all our needs.
Very central to all our needs.
A designer hotel without the expensive price tag. Excellent breakfast and staff
Spacious and comfortable. Quiet; good breakfast.
The location and the cleanliness are factors which lead me to book, in supplement I experienced an extraordinary friendly staff. Furthermore I adore the hotel's mixture of traditional and new barock style. It was tropically hot in our room. There is no air-condition in this hotel. The window was to small to let efficiently enough fresh air into the room (temperature outside like 17°). They provided a fan, but I'm a type of person who catches a cold when I'm sleeping with a fan directed at me. Due to this I had remarkable troubles to get to sleep.
The location was superb! One minute walking distance from Oxford street and five minute to Covent Gardens. As central can be, two minutes walk to the Tottenham Rd Tube Station, shopping area, eateries, books and more.
Very out dated in need of refurb. no AC too hot room service food very
This was my second stay at this hotel. I stay in Bloomsbury twice a year for business and usually stay at the Morgan Hotel. My first visit was not great. I was not recognized as a gold member while there and was given a pretty small but nicely appt. room. I had not planned on going back but there was a good deal on Agoda for a suite and so I thought I would give them another try. The room was fabulous! Room service was perfect with excellent customer service. The customer service except for a few blips here and there was very good. Just lovely all they way around and now I will look forward to staying there again in the future. I was checked in by a very nice woman who talked so lightly that I had to ask her to repeat things. She also did not handle my credit card correctly and so I ended up not being able to charge to my room--slight inconvenience--not terrible. I had a business call that got cut off and the switchboard kept connecting my party to the wrong hotel--more problematic. The breakfast wait staff was not very good. I had to get up from my table to chase them down for a cup of coffee. The basically seat you and then do not attend to you there after. The dinner food was quite good the breakfast is not worth the 21 pounds. Next time I will probably go out for breakfast.
The staff were brilliant Needs Air Con
Nice blend of modern facilities ina traditional building. Quiet, comfortable room and everything just a cut above hotels at a similar price in the area.
Location of hotel was great. Oxford Street, Restaurants,Theatres and Tube station, all within 5 minute walk. Hotel very comfortable. Staff very helpful.
practical for my reason visiting London. have stayed a umber of times. Lighting in the bedroom. No bedside lights. Overhead light too strong. Room was cold
Everyone work this hotel are very nice understanding very clean hotel the breakfast was very good and it's close to everywhere you wanna visite in London ) they are very friendly employees They help you for everything you need to know in London don't forget to meet this guy nam Koego his is the cool us guy I over meet with his co worker at the front desk price was so good to for London hotel price I like it and I love it the Best hotel ever in London thanks you for everyone who work there
Friendly, helpful, efficient staff. Clean, smart, quiet room. Convenient central location, near Covent Garden and Holbourne tube station. Pleasant, safe hotel. No bad points. We would have eaten in the hotel one evening, but that evening the restaurant was unavailable and the bar did not have suitable gluten-free options, so we ate elsewhere.
Our room was excellent - plenty of room - which was a welcome surprise. The staff was very accommodating. Two blocks walk to Covent Garden. Plenty of restaurants nearby, and a Starbucks right across the street.
Good location for Covent Garden, good customer service. N/A
location the cold bar - due to a long day out we decided to have an evening at the hotel bar but it was so cold I had to go and get my coat !!
friendly staff, good atmosphere the lack of digital tv
High standard of cleanliness. lovely spa facility. great location Hard pillows
Great location close to Covent Garden, Theatre Land, resturants and coffee shops. The staff were very corteous. The bed was very hard.
All staff very helpful.
Very convenient to conference location next door. Close proximity to tube and to Convent Garden. Tired interior of hotel overall and rooms
Location Room cleaning no free wirless area...
The TV Breakfast issues No knowlege of local area Language barriers
We liked the modern decor. Our room was facing the road and was extremly noisy.
Central position for Theatres etc
Great location for shopping and the theatres and most of the main sites to see. Also had a great breakfast. Size of the room could have been larger for the price paid.
I found the location perfect for sightseeing. The room was very nice and as a venue is was very good also. Food was excellent:-) I was a shame I wasn't able to access the internet. The solution you have chosen at the hotel did not work for me as my company (banking) apparently have restrictions which make it impossible to lock on to a web browser before the internet access is given...
Excellent location, nicely renovated, modern hotel We stayed at the end of November and it was exceptionally cold in London. The hotel room was cold and the heater made terrible noise, but had to be on all the time. No heating in the otherwise beautiful bathroom.
Staff is very very kind, cleaning is not the best inside the whole structure, but inside our room is basically good. Some very little I repeat very little details that make the difference for this very high level hotel: the holder for hygenic paper was broken, the hairdryer tubular was rapaired with insulating tape and for this reason it was a little sticky, the bath tub had very little splinterings on edge, the window was stopped with a piece of folded paper and in conclusion the tv controller had not the cover for the batteries and it was replaced with a certainly sticky coloured tape .
Facilities and location
The upgrade to a superb room on the top floor - couldn't fault it unless that was the deluxe double that had been originally booked. Excellent hotel and well placed for business meetings in the City.
The size of the room - very spacious Not applicable
Hotel convenient for tube and acces to London The hotel was being revamped - lift inadequate. Heating did not work. Staff coped as best they could
Friendly staff with a clean and comfortable room.
Nice amenities. Great location. Air conditioning never cooled room completely during a warm spell.
design of room was good (tastefully decorated). Bed/linen very adequate Boiler broke down on 26.11.10 and no hot water for shower or even a wash...only gave 10% discount for inconvenience . Also.. lift not working (had to use staff lift the corridors/reception was a building site...there were no stairs to 1st floor and could not establish where the fire excape was (and staff could not provide that information) Breakfasts were not included in tariff
I loved the central location,Excellent for a short stay
The location was excellent. I work in holborn and was easily able to walk in. Covent garden very close. The attitude of the staff when the boiler failed. Discourteous and off hand. Almost made me feel that it was my fault. No offer of complimentary breakfast, reduced rate. Not even an apology
The rooms were very nice and well equipped. Based only on this, I would stay here again. The renovations were very intrusive. No elevator access, except through a service elevator, which was always jammed at peak times. No stairs access below the 1st floor, which besides being inconvenient, made me wonder about safety in a fire. No hot water on the second day was literally "icing" on the cake. I have to remember that eventually the renovations will be complete, so I actually might give this place another shot.
V friendly staff Too hot !
The staff at all levels were friendly, helpful and courteous. Excellent Dark and small rooms. I would not have stayed had I realised the huge amount of refurbishment going on.
Location was very good A little expensive for what it was...
Good location. Excellent air conditioning. The room had a strong smell of disinfectant / air freshener. The shower did not work.
The Location. All theatres in walking distance, lots of restaurants and Soho shops. Close to underground. The rooms are really small (I am British). Minimal mini bar and hopeless main bar. Remote control did not work, tissue box empty. Dissapointing room service menu. So although it looked the part, I was very dissapointed, not value for money
Comfortable bed, large bathtub (with shower attachment), quiet, good temperature control, good location, friendly staff. The room was pretty small, but it was adequate. Even at the discounted Kayak price, it was expensive, but the value for money was still high.
The hotel exceeded our expectations. It was beautiful, clean and stylish, it even had fragrance oils in every corner so it smelled like heaven. The double bed room was relatively small but has everything one might need. Bathroom was big, beautiful and luxurious with boutique soup collection. The housekeeping was exceptional, the room was cleaned twice a day and little treats like chocolate was left for us once a day. Loved it!
Excellent service, cute rooms (small, but as expected), wonderful marble bath. Turn down service includes chocolates! In a convenient area, not far from the Tube.
easy access to londons attractions
Stayed 7 nights and really enjoyed the hotel. Room was very nice. Bed very comfortable. The staff are very professional and helpful. Concierge desk was very good helping out with any questions. Loved location near British museum and nice area close to Oxford St. and Soho. Very close to hop off on buses for getting around to tourist sites. Nothing.
The helpful from the staff who able to allocate a room for my very early check-in. A room is assigned which is a disable room. However, this is not the same expectation when I book a 'Superior Double Room'. I have not asked for a change as I have a very busy schedule during my stay in London.
A very clean and luxurious designer hotel. Great food. Very helpful and pleasant staff. The room was a little cramped. Desk was too big for the room. Feel the room could be bigger for a Superior room.
Not much just a city hotel
it was central for my needs, and all staff were very helpful on all points. problems getting a six seater taxi service.
Perfect location because of walking distance to major shoppping streets and Covent Garden/Leicester Square. Good concierge services. Housekeeping started cleaning round 9 am, the noise from the hall and nearby rooms woke me up every morning. Obviously paying for location and not room size. Air-conditioning makes considerable noise.
Good restaurant, nice building, clean. No hot water, only luke water. When problems ocurred during extending my stay, different solutions were promised by different persons, no promises were kept though.
