    Very good

    The bathroom was lovely.

    It was too hot especially in the bar at night but also the restaurant and other communal spaces. Our room was too hot as well but at least I could use the air cond, though it was noisy. Also, there were not enough waiting staff on at breakfast and we had to queue for quite a time to be seated. I did not feel this was a 4* experience

    Fabulous

    Convenience of location. Air conditioned rooms Helpfulness of staff

    Having stayed lots of times over several years I was a little disappointed with breakfast selection. In the past a choice of fruit yoghourts was available, individual pots of jam and a wider pastry selection.

    The staff were exceptionly friendly and helpful. The hotel is a fantastic location easily accessable for central London. The breakfast was a good choice, of whatever you wanted.

    The room we stayed in was in desperate need of updating and decorating. The paint work was yellow and stained with marks on the walls which did not look very pleasant for a 4 star hotel. We had a 13 year old child in our room, so had requested another bed. There was a sofa bed in the room which was pulled out for this purpose, but it meant that there was only a small gap at the end of it to get to the double bed, and on the wall was the iron and ironing board!! So everytime you walked past the end of the sofa bed you ended up catching yourself on the items on the wall. We were lucky that we did not spend much time in the room. We had thought that the rooms looked very nice on the website, but no we were in a completely different room from what is illustrated.

    The hotel is centrally located and has an excellent turn of the century bar which is open to 1.00am

    The single room is somewhat cramped and dated whilst the en suite bathroom is modern and of a decent size. Didn't try breakfast

    Very good

    Eveyone was pleasant and efficient and we were given a choice of rooms when we got there, contemporary or traditional. Location is excellent for shops and also near enough to walk from Euston Station.

    Slightly dilapidated and furniture a bit dark. Also weather was hot and the towel rail couldn't be turned off - consequently, our room was a bit too warm.

    I am sorry but I was very disappointed with the room I was given on the 7 th floor. I would not accept it even from a B & B. I would not class it as 4 star hotel at all, more like 2 star. It was not good value for my money. The breakfast service was also poor.

    Good location in Russell Square

    Once I got the past the chandeliers and pillars of the grand foyer, the reality of my room was a big disappointment. Dingy describes it pretty well - marks on the wall, faded carpet, rotting window frame and very old TV. Breakfast was in a vast dining room with too many tables crammed in. The staff did their best in adverse circumstances, but it was not a relaxing start to the day. Overall I thought this hotel was very overpriced for the standard provided.
