Great hotel even better location
First time in London and staid in the Russel Hotel. The receptionstaff were very friendly. The breakfast was just good and the bar relaxed and cosy. The hotel is situeted 20 min. walk from Pancreas station and the subway just around the corner. Also the hop on busses are across the street and tickets are available at the concierge. The staff is very helpfull and the rooms are modern furnished but the building old. If you visit London (business or pleasure) this is the place to be.

Hotel russel
The hotel was in a very good location! about a 20 second walk from the russell tube. the room was ok, average, clean with the usualls but nothing to write home about. Staff were quite friendly, but the concierge could of been a bit more helpful! The only bad thing is the lifts there tiny and fit about 4 people if u squish, difficult if u have luggage! otherwise a plesant stay.

Great stay
Stayed at the Russell Hotel for four nights. Our request for a room change to one with a view was no problem and we were able to look out onto Russell Square. Accomodations were fine as was the hot breakfast. Great value for our American dollar, would stay there again.

The Russell London
I am so pleased that we choose this hotel and that we need not make the same mistake when we last visited london. for Less than £100 a night including breakfast is was value for Money. Ok we did not have a great view of the russel square having got an internal view room. We did not have the time to keep looking out of the window. The hotels is situated in walking distance from Euston. The walked to a show in Leicester Square. The staff were pleasant and their was no trouble about leaving our bag in storage until late evening when we were catching our train. Booking with GTA and booking into the Hotel was effortless and I will use them again. Thank you 17.01.09

"Good location, generally pretty good, friendly."
Its in a decent location, handy for the west end and shopping/museaums. Its generally quite friendly, not too formal. Rooms do vary. I've had two doubles ranging from very nice modern decor, to homely slightly worn (but acceptable). Decent beds in both cases. Breakfast is a very pricey, i'm not sure it's worth the £15 or so! You have to queue up for a small table and we didn't get any tea (despite asking many many times) the last time. However, i'd happily go back there, so that says something. ALSO - plenty of free Wi-fi access floating around when i was there.

"beautiful inside and out"
i stayed at the russell for a works course and all i can say is wow, i got lucky with this hotel... the 1st thing is how impressive the outside of the hotel is and it doesn't dissapoint when you step through the front doors. when i steped inside i was greated with a very friendly and helpful member of staff who directed me to reception, though you can't miss it but that is just the great service i received. tho hotel is huge, however you don't get a sence of that when you are inside. the room was well decorated though not as glossy some of the rooms look on their website but it was lovely none the less. bathroom again spotless with fresh towels every day. very well stocked tea and coffee. the bar wasn't too badly priced but then i dont drink so i can only comment on the soft drinks. food was excellent. when i needed directions on the first morning they were given in simple form that even i couldn't get lost with. over all a very pleasent stay, made a trip for work a pleasure. i would definitly consider this as a base if i were to visit for leisure an it was very well located for travel by tube (station 2 mins away) or by foot with lots of lovely places to eat close by...as you would expect...

"Lovely room, good breakfast"
Spent 2 nights here on business. Have to say this is the best mid range hotel I've stayed in in London. The room was spacious, 2 double beds, lots of light (I did have a corner room. 232). Decorated in a very modern style but sympathetic to the age of the hotel. Bathroom very smart with quality fittings. Hotel populated by business people rather than tourists which seems to keep the standards up as I have stayed in some London Hotels which are full of coach parties and the hotels seem to treat them like cattle! The breakfast was buffet style and of very good quality, nothing fancy , just the usual fare but cooked and presented well. Yes the public areas are a sea of garish marble and the layout is a bit odd but it is an old victorian hotel and it would be a crime to rip out all that history and replace it with glass and steel. I have to say being a scotsman and £3.20 for a pint in the bar was a painful!! Lots of places to eat and drink round about, after all that's the beauty of London.

"Mini Break in London"
My sister and I chose to stay at the Russell Hotel as part of a trip to town to go to the Theatre. We did not eat in the hotel but we were very happy with the choice of stay as the rooms were large modern and airy and the bathroom was great. My only request would have been for a net curtain on the window to save my modesty! The staff were very friendly on arrival and efficient on check out. The location is ideal for theaterland and I would recommend it to others who are looking for a trouble free stay - especially if they can attract the same good deal I did for the room!

"Great Hotel"
Myself and my husband stayed in the Russell for 3 nights in March, We had a great room 128 with a balcony it was very comfortable. Breakfast was lovely and there was no queue when we were there although we did have to wait for fried eggs for all of 4 minutes (nothing). When we previously visited London we stayed in a hotel in Great Russell Street, part of a chain of hotels and the Russell beat this hotel on all accounts. Great hotel and will definately be going back.

Great stay at the Russell Hotel
We had a fantastic weekend in London and our stay at the Russell Hotel was just great. The rooms are rather on the small side but nicely furnished and bathroom very modern. Ask for a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor, they have been renovated so no bad suprises there. Breakfast was ok, which means not too much choice of cold cuts and cheese. I will certainly stay there again. Very helpful staff memebers and great location.

Hotel Russell
Convenient for British museum and friendly staf. Disappointing rooms in much need of refurbishment. I stay there as work nearby weekly for one night. Missing window pane glass last week, not hot water in shower /bath last night and moved to room with heating not working !!
