Reviews - Hotel Russell

4AA Assessed Hotel Ratings explained
1-8 Russell Square , London, WC1B 5BE
When you’re visiting the capital you need to be in a location that’s close to everything and has all the facilities you need at a great four-star price. Hotel Russell in Bloomsbury gives you just that. We’re walking distance or a short taxi ride from Euston, St. Pancras and Kings Cross stations and next door to Russell Square tube station that takes you to Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square in minutes. Guests can also enquire at reception for 50% discount at Bloomsbury car park.

Steeped in history and heritage, a refurbishment means that behind the historic façade, most bedrooms, meeting rooms and the bar have all the modern amenities that you need to make your stay memorable.

Business guests and short break visitors alike are conveniently located to get around the city and can easily enjoy a theatre break, the British Museum, Buckingham Palace, St. Paul’s Cathedral or Harrods, as well as many more of the nearby central London attractions.

After a busy day, there’s just enough time to unwind in the Tempus Bar with a chilled glass of wine or steaming pot of tea. Our Tempus Restaurant is also a must for a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Disappointed
This hotel has no dropping area for bags at the entrance, which is on a very busy road. Don't take the car. The entrance is tired and the reception area unwelcoming and dark. The room was very clean and had everything you would need but was small and on the eighth floor, one floor up from the seventh floor lift stop. This was a last minute booking at a discounted rate and this was a discounted room. The bar was dark with poorly trained staff, a whiskey sour bore no resemblance to a cocktail and the promised and offered bar nuts did not arrive. London has many more better hotels.

Weekend shopping package
Stayed Sunday night, good value, especially with champagne and Harrods voucher.
Room on 2nd floor with balcony, great for the sun in the morning..not too noisy.
One issue, the air-con did not work, however small fans were provided in the tastefully decorated room.
Excellent staff - at check-in and breakfast.. very attentive.

Great central location
The Russell is a charming and comfortable Bloomsbury hotel. The staff were friendly and efficient and the room was functional, clean and comfortable. I don't know that I would pay the 'book' price for this hotel, but then I wouldn't normally consider any hotel at that price. However at the late deal of £99 plus breakfast, this was an absolute bargain. Well done.
