Most uncomfortable single rooms

Stayed there for 3 nights in February. Sleeping in the provided bed was a challenge. The bed was so small I couldn't fit in it. Woke up twice in the middle of the night because I was about to fall over. The mattress was so bad it gave the impression it will fall off the bed as it was a bit larger than the bed frame. Tried to seep only on the mattress and only on the bed frame but the addition to comfort was almost zero. I would have slept on the floor but the remaining free space in the room was not sufficient for an adult person to lay down.It was by far the worst room I ever stayed in.

Still not ideal

I have stayed at the Imperial in the past. It never provides 'wow moments' but it is well placed for many London attractions. It is also near Russell Square underground and has buses passing by regularly. The rooms are adequate but spare. No extras such as a bottle of water or a welcoming bursitis. The breakfast was a disappointment. Bowls of clearly tinned oranges and grapefruit plus juice-less prunes. Porridge was available this time except it had virtually no oats in it and would have been better poured into a cup and drunk. The toast is nothing more than slightly brown, rather soggy bread. One wonders it the management have ever tried it. The hotel could do a lot better if customer satisfaction was paramount

Clean and Good value

This was our second stay at the Imperial booked as part of a Superbreak deal. The hotel is a little 'tired' but very clean. All staff were welcoming and cheerful. Breakfast hit the spot and set us up for the day. The Night and Day bar offers excellent value for central London.

Overnight stay in Russell Square

A great place to stay as its in easy walking distance of the Thames and some shows. The hotel is clean, tidy and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It has a restaurant which supplies a really great breakfast but unfortunately it does not do other meals. However there are lots of great restaurants around and close to Russell Square so plenty of places to eat and lots to do.

Great location, great staff

The Imperial Hotel is in a great location, being a couple of minutes walk away from Russell Square tube station. There are a variety of shops, cafes and restuarants within walking distances and Russell Square park is opposite.I stayed in a single room overlooking the park - for those of you who are light sleepers, ask for rooms overlooking the court yard which will be quieter.The room has a shower/bath combo, tea/coffee making facilities, towels, hair dryer and toiletries.There is a cafe serving drinks from dawn til dusk, as well as a restaurant. The hotel is linked to 5 other hotels nearby, where you can also eat.The rooms are a good size for London. The staff are extremely helpful and as a single traveller, I always feel safe.
