Great central location, warm in winter with free wifi!

This place was perfect for what I needed. Undoubtedly I would stay here again for the reasons above, great location, warm and free wifi! Other reasons include: Nice and close to the universities, British Museum and transport which could take me anywhere else I needed to go. The breakfast was good, albeit same selection each morning, nonetheless a good cross section of hot and cold. The waiters are always pleasant although I wish they would offer the seats by the window more rather than so close to the door. The building itself was very warm which made a huge impact on my enjoyment of staying here. I found the front desk staff a bit reticent overall however, what they lacked the concierge desk made up for. I cannot thank concierge Angelo L enough for his taking the time to assist me to organise a sightseeing trip which has been one of the highlights of my life! Who knew I would enjoy seeing Stratford and Oxford so much and for such a good price. For that I am extremely grateful. In terms of my room, at first I was offered a room at the back of the hotel but I insisted on a room at the front overlooking Russell Square. The level 6 view was fabulous and I could see both the roof of the British Museum with all its lights at night and the top of the London Eye. The TV was small but had a variety of channels, I liked the bathrooms good strong fixtures. My only suggestions for improvement would be to place a hook on the wall to offer the option to latch the bathroom door open, and to offer more than one tea & coffee sachet in the room. Everything else was perfect! Thank you for providing a cosy stay in London.

Genteel, shabby, well-located and perfect for our needs!

We were going to spend 4 nights here so we opted for one of the larger rooms. It turned out to be a little strange -- it had an extra bed and the toilet and bath were separate little rooms. But that feature seemed pretty consistent with the general character of the hotel -- a throwback to the 1950s or early 60s! I enjoyed that ambience as well as having a little more space in the room than budget hotels in London come with.Also greatly appreciated - their breakfasts, and,- their flexibility around a late check-out. They easily extended my check-out to 5pm form the usual noon though I did not need that much time.

Excellent central location

If you are planning on not spending a lot of time in the hotel, this is ideal.Food is limited and average but all eating areas are spotless.Staff are professional, polite and efficient.Main downfall is that the hotel is incredibly dated. All rooms need a good refurb. Great value for money though.

Great location, could be a bit cleaner

Stopped here for one night and the location is great. The rooms are very spacious compared to younger hotels.The only slight negative was the bathroom, it could have been cleaner and my sink was tiny so not particularly practical (not sure if that's because I was in a disabled room or if they were all like that)Staff were all friendly and professional so overall I would stay again.

Great Hotel in a Central Location

From arrival to leaving an excellent experience. Staff very attentive, food good, bar prices reasonable for London. Atrium Bar very comfortable with good selection of beer and spirits. Central Location is excellent with only a short walk to British Museum and Oxford Street
