We have stayed at Tavistock Hotel several times because of the value for money, the location close to the railway stations, to places we want to visit and to central London like Oxford Street. The hotel has no luxury, but everything we need.

This hotel is not luxurious, but has an excellent location. Many places are walking distance, like The British Museum, subway station, shops. The room is basic, but very clean, white crispy linen, comfortable beds, clean bathroom with a good shower; no amenities except for a small bar of soap. The rugs in the room and corridor look new (third floor)....

This was a really cheap subsidised deal through work. We thought as price so cheap we could manage a basic hotel for the weekend. Location ok. Lobby ok. Staff have no customer service skills. Passageways to rooms were filthy and the whole place smelled of a elderly residential home. Room tiny basic and grubby although sheets clean. Now for the...

A friend recommended The Tavistock to me as being a reasonably priced, comfortable, no-nonsense hotel: she was right. I have just spent two days there and will certainly return. The Tavistock Hotel has a charming, rather old-fashioned, genteel feel about it, which I loved. The lobby is well staffed and the receptionists and porters are all polite, kind and helpful....

On the recommendation of a friend, we recently stayed at the Tavistock Hotel, Russell Square, London. It was recommended primarily because the price was the most reasonable in central London, and the location is excellent. It was clean, quiet and the staff was helpful and pleasant. The rooms were not very large, but I have stayed in smaller rooms in...
