The Royal National Hotel is situated in Russell Square, right round the corner from the Russell Square tube station, which gives access to the main Picadilly line and all other main tub lines. I first stayed there in February 2010 with my mum and it made our trip so easy. On arrival we were allowed to leave our luggage in the hold until we wanted to check in, leaving us to roam London for as long as we pleased without leaving our luggage. As it is an international hotel and it was the half term holidays, a lot of coach trips consisting of foreign students came and went from the hotel. The only problem we had with the hotel was that we were put in the corridor full of nosiy students, which was not the fault of the hotel, just pure misfortune. When I go back this June, I will be interested to see how quiet it is compared to staying in the school holidays. However, the rooms were spotlessly clean yet basic, with a modern bathroom, two beds, a TV and all of the other facilities that make up a hotel room. The main lobby of the hotel consists of a bar, vending machines, a quiet area to sit and watch the many TVs and free WiFi, which os always a plus in my book! Breakfast consisted of a vast choice of buffet, including porridge, yoghurts, toast, breads, cooked breakfasts, cereals, fruit etc, which really set us up for our day of sightseeing. I am that confident in the hotel, the staff and the location that I have booked to go again for three nights and four days with my friend this June. Never have I been so confident to travel without parents, and as it is my friend's first stay in London, I know it will be a great introductory visit and the first of many. Thank you Royal National!.
