Historic Hotel with a lot of Class

by Kathleen D on 25 Jan 2017 (Solo Traveller)

I stayed at the Russell in July 2015. My review is a bit late. I absolutely loved my stay. The suite I had was large and comfy. I had more than enough room for luggage, to do work and relax. The staff were very professional and friendly. I enjoyed a very nice afternoon tea in the dining room. I found the pricing reasonable for my stay.

perfect for us

We had a great stay at Hotel Russell. It was perfectly located and our room was large and comfortable. We even had a good view of Bloomsbury. The staff were polite and helpful. The breakfast was good, a very British breakfast. The tube is just next door, and the bus stops are great for tourists.

It is on the expensive side. Very beautiful inside and a great location by the British Museum. Easy to get to the Metro and buses. The Breakfast is nice and a lot to choice from. Worth staying here. I would stay here again.

Not the view of London we had booked!

Amazing hotel and having walked past it a few times, we really wanted a view of London/ Russell Square and /or? Booked months in advance and on arrival were treated to a view of the courtyard as " busy with renovations"! Extreme disappointment and while the room and all else was great, the walk-in shower was not! Old design that leaks onto bathroom floor! Breakfast - average for the price - better deals just around the corner. Location and ease of travel - perfect!
