We went on a weekend away because he had tickets to see Harry Potter and the cursed child, which the hotel was a short five minute walk away which was great for me and my friend to get there as it was over 2 nights. However we were never informed that there was to be building works happening throughout February. This resulted in there being no room for a reception desk and little to do in the hotel as everything was cordened off. As for the rooms, they were small and dated, they also didn't have much of a blind for the windows. As there has been a neon lit build finished across the street from the hotel, the room was lit up all night. To add to this there was a false fire alarm at 4am in the morning which no one came to inform us about but we could barely hear it from our room. The shower cubicle was really small with a really powerful shower that wasn't pleasant and to top everything we had a cockroach crawl into our room just before our departure that resided under our bed. All in all multiple things went wrong with our stay and I wouldn't recommend.
Location is good Size of the room, the bed and the badthroom is too small, (very small).
location was fantastic no
very central fantastic location.
The hotel is in a good spot, next to oxford street. breakfast was an extra £9.95 each per day.
Concierge people are very nice. Single room has no place for luggage
Access to tube trains This hotel is not a star hotel. Rooms are very small
Very over priced
Location. Location. Helpful and pleasant staff. Cold room in morning. Too few lifts. Lack of TV channels.
location choice of food in restaurant
A nice complimentary breakfast the following day. We booked a table for 4 in the hotel's Italian restaurant for Saturday 27/11/10 at 5pm in order for us to attend a show. When we were ready to eat we were told that we didn't have a reservation as this restaurant did not open on a Saturday night. We were however placed in your Japanese restaurant without too much bother. Better communication with guests would be better.
The food was excellent, the staff most helpfull. The first room offered was very very poor ,we had to pay extra to get an half decent room
The hotel has an excellent location and a very nice atmosphere. I also enjoyed the restaurant recommendations made by the concierge. The room was a bit noísy (I lived on the second floor).
I have stayed at Hotel Russell now a number of times, both as a single traveler in a single room, a twin room with my mother, and a double room with my husband. All rooms were comfortable and spacious enough for our needs and comfort. Breakfasts are very good quality too! Staff polite and helpful and location brilliant. I couldn't stay longer!!
simply the way in which the staff treated us with so much respect, after we had a couple of problems with our room to start with, they showed alot of kindness, booked us into a different hotel for the first night, free of charge, and then upgraded us to a lovely room for our second night stay in london, we felt very well looked after.
The very large bathroom & close proximity to tube station. Upon first arrival we were given very small room on smoking floor, so we changed.
Hotel room was warm and comfortable, as the weekend weather was poor it was nice to get back to an inviting room. Delay in breakfast - although once we got fed it was great.
Very nice Hotel. Easy access to public transport. Dealing of staff is very good. If i would visit London again, would definitely prefer to stay there.
The size of the Junior suite was wonderful! The room was a little old and had some cracks in the wall joints. They didn't have any pull in area if you arrive by car. We weren't aware of this from the descriptions and had to drive around the area to find a parking garage and then roll our luggage a few blocks to the hotel.
big bathroom and unique decoration of the room. there was no fridge and safe box in the room. there is no concierge most of the time. staff are not professional.
the three consierge gentlemen we spoke to were very helpful Staff maybe might smile. If applicable make sure you get your Harrods voucher. We had to ask even though it was included in our package.
the athmosphere I had a double room which was evidently a converted single very small no easy chair,insufficient room for clothes and luggage
Architecture and Services are Excellent. Food is great. Staff is A+. Elevators need a tune up. Bathrooms are slippery.
Bar was nice Room was small and underwhelming consider g how much we paid.
We loved the look of the place and everyone was so professional and friendly. We had a wonderful Christmas brunch and had fun going in the spa pool. We had a drink in the bar. I'd highly recommend it. It's just beautiful there.
Location of hotel was fairly near the tube station and other faciltites nearby When I checked inot the hotel, I had to wait a long time whilst they were checking my booking.I Needed an extra bed and they offered to upgrade me to a family suite afor another 103.50pounds. They then charged me 724.50 for the 3 nights stay.I Realised later that they had overcharged me by 10 pounds because the original booking was 611 pounds. When I queried them the next day,I had to go through 2 other staff before they refunded me 10 pounds overcharge. I hope I have not been billed twice ie once by my initial booking through your website and then by the Grange Holborn hotel.
The staff are extremely helpful and location is excellent. The television selection is poor and internet costs far too much.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities. The bathroom was very small but that didn't really bother us. Despite the double glazing and being on the ninth floor, we heard the noise of the traffic all night.
Staff was very nice and helpful. The swimming pool is big, facilities are clean. The room was not big but sufficient for a familly with 2 kids. The bathroom was clean, with a bathtube but the w.c. inside.The breakfast was delicious, but a bit expensive. A pity that the swimming pool has restricted hours for kids when you have kids but it must be appreciated for those who have not.
Staff were very friendly and prompt Room was noisy being on the main road at a junction. I think if two people had been in the room there would have been a lack of space around the bed area as it was a funny shaped room.
Good location Small rooms with tiny bathrooms - adequate for a single traveler on business with no luggage but not a Five star hotel and nothing like the pictures on the website.
Helpful and friendly staff.
The room was a good size, nicely decorated, clean. Facilites included TV, stereo, air conditioning which is very important. Bathroom clean with nice toiletries.
Good quality fitments Small room
The staff were absolutely first class from the moment we walked through the door from the booking in people at reception, the bar staff and chambermaids.excellent No complaints
Everything about this stay was great. The room was beautiful and clean, the bathroom was spacious with lots of shelf space for our stuff. the staff was wonderful. the location is ideal, and they had a big lounge for guests. It's expensive but worth it.
Only stayed one night to catch the train to Heathrow the next day. Great location in proximity to Kings Cross St Pancras. Trendy lobby with DJ playing on Friday night, not too loud though. Beds were great, showers were nice, all modern decor. Morning breakfast buffet in the restaurant is great. Overall it's a nice clean place to stay for a night or two. I'd be back.
The Pullman St Pancras had nice, high-end finishes in the bathroom and the bedroom, as well as in the lobby. People have complained about the wifi, but we actually had a pretty good experience with it; we were able to make a call using their wifi. All in all, a pretty comfortable experience. This is in a pretty noisy part of London (Euston Rd), which means that there are a lot of pubs (which can get rowdy), cars honking horns, ambulance and police sirens, etc.; even though we were on the 12th floor, the noise from outside woke me up often during the night. Also, the bathroom door does not shut tightly; it leaves a gap between the leaves of the door, so any noises (etc.) from inside the bathroom are audible to your significant other in the rest of the room! Not particularly romantic! And the thermostat was difficult to program; quite a few times, it would show 22 degrees C and be programmed for 18, but would still put out warm air, which makes no sense.
Very handy for Eurostar Toweld old and hard. Shower door didn't fit well
hotel was a peaceful experience staff all very helpful especially the restaurant manager. I did leave behind some of my clothing and wanted to arrange these items be posted to my home address? 26 Glencoe, Whitburn West Lothian Scotland EH47 8AR Central location, cleanliness, up to date style & furniture.
Bed was amazingly comfortable with great sheets. Bathroom perfect, breakfast amazing. check out was a bit busy.
It is walking distance from the train station, great location. The staff is very helpful and very accommodating. The breakfast was the best I've had in Europe during my 3 month stay. The bathrooms are very modern and the whole hotel is very clean. The hotel is great, but the beds are a little firm. There was one lady at the front desk that was polite but cold. Other than that everything was great.
Staff was ready and willing to help at any time. Bed was very comfortable and room was spotless. Wonderful breakfast with many options. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The location is central and the views from the top floors are stunning. There are many excellent restaurants nearby.
Modern clean smart rooms with all amenities in an excellent location close to St Pancras and Kings Cross stations plus friendly staff. Nothing to not like
Lo recomiendo 100%
The location was ideal, transportation was near by. The staff was friendly The bed was hard!!
The location of the hotel was fantastic and we had great views of the city from our room. We were given a room with disabled access which was fine. The only complaint I have about the 'wet room' is that the water did not drain away and the floor was a gigantic puddle and we had no way of getting the water out. Also, are 3 shower heads neccessary for one bathroom??
Excellent service. Great breakfast.
location was excellent, had an appointment at the uclh hospital. Service from staff at front desk, valet parking and room service was very good indeed. Negatives are although we arrived later than planned and had wanted to order hot food, when we called at 10.55pm we were told hot food was finished! The advertised finish time is 11.00pm in room service info, I know it is only five minutes but when you have travelled 5 hours and did order before the end time, bit frustrating.The stay to be honest was spoilt by very slow and unmotivated restaurant staff, No welcome from staff in restaurant, had to wait by a table whilst he took all the cutlery off a fully layed table next to our table, why not just seat us on the table that was already layed??!! Did not expect a hotel as this to be unprofessional at all.I expected better for breakfast than the experiance we had,being hoteliers ourselves.
The room was nice but only after complaining about the first one i was given. Having booked a king size room i was disappointed at the size of the room I was alocated. After complainijng this was soon rectified and i was given a larger room.Breakfast was not a pleasant experience. had to queue for ages, bit like being in a holiday camp.Not becoming of a four star hotel. restuarant tables were far to close together and this made for an impersonal atmosphere. The staff appeared to be doing there best under difficult circumstances. They remained polite throughout.
The room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. The TV was dated and had a very limited number of channels.
The hotel was lovely , very clean and tidy with friendly helpful staff. The room was lovely and modern. The pillows were a bit to big for me would be the only thing.
location staff on reception
It was a business trip so only slept there but breakfast was lovely. Excellent location too!
We were upgraded to a suite, which was wonderful. The staff were very helpful and the location is excellent.
very helpful excellent staff temperature control in room,high charge for telephone
very unfriendly staff, and the whole hotel needs urgent refurbishment.
Check-in and check-out was easy and efficient 1) Bedroom sash window was loose fitting and so rattled in the wind. 2) Goods being received (or moved) below my window at 06:30. 3) Ancient 14in portable TV as far away from the bed or easy chair as it was possible to locate it.
The security arrangements were good - eg lift doesn't work to go to upper floors unless bedroom key card is inserted. The breakfast was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful. I thought the bedrooms were rather small for a 4-star London hotel
Friendly, polite and helpful staff, clean facility. Good location. Noisy room location above delivery dock,construction noise one night until 11 pm. Extremely poor acoustics in restaurant (am acoustic specialist in N. America) very hard surfaces,floor,walls,ceiling and other multiple reflective surfaces make for most unpleasant experience resulting in avoiding restaurant second time.
Great room and food None
Room was clean and right next to the Russell square underground entrance. Room was small, wifi wasn't free and the room smelled, but in their defense we didn't ask to change rooms. Kind of pricy for a holiday inn.
it was coveniently situated for Radisson Edwardian Hotel, which is where we needed to be that evening poor service in the bar, exorbitant charges for drinking water, spartan room and bathrom, noise in the morning from street and plumbing
The hotel provides a consistent level of frienliness, efficiency and comfort. it is well placed for shopping , sisgt seeing and business (city of London banks etc).
The hotel is very well located, close to tube stations. the room is small and facilities require renewing. some broken (faucet, door handle etc.). price is very high and is not a decent return for the money
Hassle free check in and out. Very convenient to where I was working in Gordon Square, Bloomsbury and blessed by a 24 hour car park adjacent to the hotel itself and with shops very close. The room was without half of its secondary glazing which meant that it was particularly noisy due to the proximity of nearby pubs late at night into early morning. Reception acknowledged this aspect on departure but failed to offer an explanation for the absence of part of the system.
Easy access of subway, restaurants&pubs and shopping center No fridge in the rooms so no possibility of drinking cold beverage
Proximity to underground and centre of London .yet quiet. This was a shopping trip so convenient for Oxford St and Marrlebone Road. Considering how small the room was, it was quiote well equipped. Double bed was so small. Asked if there was a room with larger bed, but told they were all the same size. Hotel was full so no option to change to two singles. Not good for anyone over 5ft 10 inches.
Excellent location Staff did not understand a small glass of wine and kept serving and charging for medium glasses
The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is handy for getting out and about. It was quite noisy at times and the walls were 'thin' we could clearly hear the man next door using the telephone.
it was freezing weather but the rooms were lovely and walm I didn't like the bed. We booked a double room but I think the bed was only 3/4 so for 2 large adults it was not comfortable. There was space to put a larger bed in the room if they did away with th coffee table which just got in the way.
so near to the station
clean , bar and food priced good no kettle in room and room very small
Nothing particular. Everything was not more than other normal hotels. Room was not cleaned when I came back in the evening. I had to wait long time in the reception. I felt total management was not working well. Room no58 only is located just next to service entrance and was cold.
Excellent location, not far from the tubes. Clean, comfortable and good value for central london. The gap in the curtains that let the light in at 6am!! but can't complain really...
Ability to leave early on Sunday morning Service, room size, steps to room, shower
The hotel is situated in an ideal position for easy access to Euston rail and tube station.
Close to public transport Our room was located at the street side of the hotel on the first floor. Traffic sounds made it noisy and difficult to fall asleep.
I chose it as I needed to be at St Pancras by 0800 the following morning, having had breakfast. Nearer B&Bs etc did not work. This was still too far away for me to walk with luggege (ineeded a taxi), but at least I had a breakfast.. See above. The dealy for a taxi was unacceptable. It was quicker to walk towards Euston. If there is a next time I shall plan accordingly.
The room size. N/A
The staff were very helpful and friendly, and the room was excellent value for what we paid. The new shower room within the suite was amazing.
the proximity to the public transport services. The cleanness of the premises. The smiles on the staff's faces. a hairdryer in the bathroom will be convenient as well as a beberages dispenser machine at each floor.
Clean, warm and self-contained, good television. Nothing really, but it would be great to have a shower cap in the bathroom!
Quiet room No hairdrier supplied in room. Shower gel empty
Breakfast was good value.
Location -we were travelling from Euston station
The bar and restaurant were a pleasant surprise in a low cost hotel We should have put out the sign asking not to be disturbed as house keeping staff knocked on the door at 8am and continued to knock every half hour/45 mins until we checked out - but it was our fault.
The hotel is located very near to Euston Station which makes it ideal for business or city break. There's no free internet and you cannot use your BTOpenzone account there. However if you walk to the Thistle, 50m up the road, you can use BTOpenzone and it's fast.
the breakfast and the newspapers
Clean and functional Overheated room
Location and comfort of room. Bathroom was decent size.
The service was very good and SKY rugby was a bonus! The room could have been bigger and the air-con was a bit noisy.
The Hotel was an excellent location for Covent Gardens only 5 mins walk dow the road. The staff were excellent couldnt do enough for you ven upgraded our room for free. Would def return. There was nothing we didnt like, the breakfast was lovely,hotel was so clean and the staff were Fantastic.
Rooms are hot and small.
very pleasant stay, just right for the theatre and the shops!
Location and friendly, informative staff
The location, very quiet, relax. The spacios of me beedrom was little
The location and cost Rooms are very small, though are typical for London. Room was on a very very noisy road and difficult to sleep
Excellent breakfast buffet included in room rates. Hotel staff are attentive and helpful. Scoff & Banter restaurant/bar has limited dinner menu and cocktail options.
Location My room
The attention to any and all details was excellent. The staff in both the front and the restaurant were very friendly and helpful. Nothing
Location Slow lifts
Very comfortable. Services and staff excellent Poor Tariff explanation. Also I specifically requested Non Smoking but on arrival was initially advised no such facility was available.The room was then upgraded to non smoking double- which was fine
they were able to hold our bags for us for 6 days while we traveled around Europe and then we came for back a final night there before heading out from Heathrow airport. We had booked 2 beds as we were 2 friends traveling together, upon check in, we were informed that there were only rooms with 1 bed available and that out reservation was just a "request" and not a guarantee. It was a king bed so we made it work. The rooms were tiny and stuffy. The A/C didn't work, and with the window open it was very noisy. They did bring up a fan for us and that helped.
The rooms at executıve must be the best but not. The rooms were smelling dampness and bacteria.
Excellent location and very good buffet breakfast.
We were welcomed from the beginning, we spent 4 days there and it was ideal for touring London. The staff was very helpful,especially Ryan and Vitail. Every thing was fine
The location of the Hotel against the underground lines. Take too long time to check in and out. To little staff at the main desk and not the correct attitude to customers.
entering the hotel.
The staff were polite and well turned out and the hotel looked great from the inside. Got the felling it was tips, tips tips. The food was not great, looked great but not nice.
cleanliness, location, main resturant and modern furniture room was not ready at arrival in the morning despite previous message and booking the night before. However, management was helpfull and did not charge for that earlier night
Location and staff very good. Wifi was unreliable for business. Very bad
The location and the comfort Some noise from other rooms
location for theatre and access to transport system obviously unavoidable but there was some building work taking place to the hotel
Breakfast service is very nice. The room was extremely small, poorly furnished and noisy.
Location is great. Bed was fine and apples were a nice touch. Gym was okay. Staff was horrible. There were months in the closet--I killed three. They did a lousy job cleaning in general. The sinks and counters were not even wiped down. There was toothpaste/grim residue not wiped up half of the days I stayed there. Dirty dishes owned by the Hilton were left for, literally, a week. The cleaning staff tossed my water bottle even though it was with wrapped up my clothes on top of my luggage and then denied it. I tried to explain the problem with needing a size of plastic bottle for security. They made a lame attempt to make it right after two hours of waiting and complaining, but they could not be bothered to listen or understand the actual problem, so the solution did not work. Great location, but I would never go back. There is no accountability.
The hotel staff was helpful with solving problems that was generated by Kayak/Hotel.com (wrong number of beds in room) while booking. Location is excellent. For a big family like us that needs place to "gather" together the lobby was very useful. Booking by Kayak/Hotel.com generated problems. Number of adults and children per room was not deliver to the hotel. When I asked Hotel.com to change the reservation through the website , NO respond. Rooms are a bit small.
Location of hotel for bars, restaurants and shopping all available within walking distance. Room clean and spacious compared to other London hotels I have stayed in. The fact that there was building work in progress and scaffolding in situe which I understand from reviews on other sites has been going on for quite a while at this hotel.
access to city centre
Hotel is clean and comfortable. Rooms are well appointed. Location is superb. Good value for money in a city renowned for overpriced hotels. Check-out was a bit haphazard, otherwise no complaints
Excellent time at this hotel! Everyone was very friendly! Nothing :)
The staff was exceptional...friendly and helpful....willing to go out of their way to assist. Would stay there again. Gym was excellent and the breakfast was very good.....breakfast was available until 11AM on weekends. Met all our needs.
We arrived to the builders in reception..complete with hard hats and hard viz jackets! There had been no mention of the major refurb going on when booking. I'm sure it will be very nice when finished, but not really the first thing you want to see when entering your hotel.. I'd received a call the day before check-in to see if my booking for two colleagues double rooms (for single occupancy) could be changed to single rooms - I said not, particularly as payment was immediately taken from my card two/three weeks before on booking and the rooms were for business clients. Although I was then told 'ok..not a problem..' this was ignored...and they were put in to single rooms on arrival!
Location was convenient Was cold, old and dirty
Good size room Renovating the place, no heating in room
Spacious and comfortable. Quiet; good breakfast.
practical for my reason visiting London. have stayed a umber of times. Lighting in the bedroom. No bedside lights. Overhead light too strong. Room was cold
Very close to Covent Garden and Oxford Street The room did not have air conditioning and was like an oven. We had to keep the small fan provided in the room going all night.
Location, Clean First room was verry small then we change the secon room and was ok. I try to use your business center facility but the computer and printer does't work properly. I spend 40 min for internet checkin for flight.
The staff were brilliant Needs Air Con
Nice blend of modern facilities ina traditional building. Quiet, comfortable room and everything just a cut above hotels at a similar price in the area.
Very out dated in need of refurb. no AC too hot room service food very
The location and the cleanliness are factors which lead me to book, in supplement I experienced an extraordinary friendly staff. Furthermore I adore the hotel's mixture of traditional and new barock style. It was tropically hot in our room. There is no air-condition in this hotel. The window was to small to let efficiently enough fresh air into the room (temperature outside like 17°). They provided a fan, but I'm a type of person who catches a cold when I'm sleeping with a fan directed at me. Due to this I had remarkable troubles to get to sleep.
Very central to all our needs.
Location of hotel was great. Oxford Street, Restaurants,Theatres and Tube station, all within 5 minute walk. Hotel very comfortable. Staff very helpful.
Cozy, comfortable, great value for money. Very attentive and polite personnel. Strategic location
Loved the layout of room, cleanliness, free internet, great location, comfy queen bed and great shower Breakfast was terrible - we went down and they had run out of orange juice and cereal - not very good value for money - altho there are lots of other options around
staff and dining were great. we stayed in an apt. that was roomy and clean.
Good location for transport links; friendly and helpful staff; well- equipped rooms and even standard rooms have baths and showers. The food (dinner) in the restaurant is excellent. Coffee maker far too fiddly and despite hotel now providing instructions, it still floods the wardrobe! Tv also over-complex, although good when you get to grips with it. Glass panel for shower over bath is fixed, making it impossible to reach taps etc without getting in the bath.
Best facilities in the room:1. free wifi. 2. coffee & tea maker took me a long time to find the on/off switch for the lights in the wardrobe
Hotel staff very helpfull. Room clean and tidy everything in place that you require.Would use again.
The staff was very helpful: we called for directions & they got us there quickly. The room was clean, relaxing,comfortable, generous in size,and quiet despite being on a busy street. The only minus was in the food service, but they did not charge us for our meal. I also saw that they are working on the restaurant area, so I expect they will have everything back in order shortly.
Internet no charge, excellent staff, v. comfortable room, clean spacious bathroom & on top of all that, excellent coffee machine in room!
Helpful staff; accessible to eurostar
Excellent location for train travel to rest of contry and the Chunnel. Directly across the street to St Pancras station. Room was very clean and very large by Eurropean standards. Friendly staff. Located on edge of a somewhat run down area, though with the International train station there, the area should continue to improve. Never felt unsafe when out in the area.
All good. Not long enough stay. The sockets tripped out they were fixed within minuets.
We had a superb meal in the restaurant. Large comfortable bedroom with rollaway bed provided.
friendly staff, good atmosphere the lack of digital tv
Location Room cleaning no free wirless area...
Friendly, helpful, efficient staff. Clean, smart, quiet room. Convenient central location, near Covent Garden and Holbourne tube station. Pleasant, safe hotel. No bad points. We would have eaten in the hotel one evening, but that evening the restaurant was unavailable and the bar did not have suitable gluten-free options, so we ate elsewhere.
Very convenient to conference location next door. Close proximity to tube and to Convent Garden. Tired interior of hotel overall and rooms
location the cold bar - due to a long day out we decided to have an evening at the hotel bar but it was so cold I had to go and get my coat !!
Good location for Covent Garden, good customer service. N/A
Our room was excellent - plenty of room - which was a welcome surprise. The staff was very accommodating. Two blocks walk to Covent Garden. Plenty of restaurants nearby, and a Starbucks right across the street.
All staff very helpful.
Great location close to Covent Garden, Theatre Land, resturants and coffee shops. The staff were very corteous. The bed was very hard.
High standard of cleanliness. lovely spa facility. great location Hard pillows
