“great location”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

On our trip to the uk and europe we stayed here to both begin and end our trip.
The location is fantastic. In an area where you are a short walk to most theatres and central to many tourist destinations.
The showers are severly cramped and there is no ventilation so if you enjoy a hot shower be prepared to be steamy.
The first room we were placed in had windows with no locks,the closest female toilets didnt lock and the shower drain was blocked, but they happily moved us the following morning.

I liked this hotel a lot. I got my room as a late booking at an excellent price. The location is very central and the hotel itself was very nice. I thought the decor was fine, in spite of what some people have said here. It's perfectly ok. I certainly would not call it shabby. In fact, it is far from that. It is bright, colourful, clean and freshly painted. The member of staff at Reception, Akhil, was friendly, welcoming and helpful. He went out of his way to make sure that I was comfortable. I spent a very enjoyable evening there, slept really well and would stay there again without hesitation.

Stayed here on a whistle stop visit to London and although it was a little tired, it was clean and comfortable. The shared toilet facility was not a problem at all and the staff were lovely. Slept in and missed breakfast so can't comment on that but for the money and location ,it was excellent value. Booked through Late Rooms.

Not sure what people are expecting from this hotel as it is only a 3star and very well priced.
I paid 200 pounds for 3 nights which in London is very reasonable.
The rooms are a good side and have everything you expect.
The location is excellent as Russell Square Underground and Holborn are in walking distance.
Covent Garden is also a 10-15 minute walk away.
Breakfast was included in the room and was a standard continental breakfast.
All in all a good budget hotel where you get what you pay for In London.

Positives:
-The location in the heart of London
-the size of the rooms
-free WiFi
-We payed 180£/night including breakfast which compared to many other places is decent for London.

Negative:
-More or less the whole building is run down and shabby.
The windows do not close properly so that when it gets windy you are kind of camping there.
-the breakfast was cheap and of poor quality. The cheese they served was out dry and changed color at the edges. An egg was charged 3£ extra on top of the 18£ we payed for it. You can save there a lot with just going around the corner for a decent breakfast.

Summary: Around Russel square are quite a few hotels so even within this location you can find a better deal.
