"Only stayed one night but clean and tidy room"

Guest rating:



For a 3 person room only 2 cups were supplied, also not enough milk for more than one cup each. The plumbing was very noisy upon flushing the toilet. Otherwise the room was fine. The sofa bed was comfortable.

"Great Hospitality"

Very impressed. Staff made everything very easy. Superb customer service. OK - there isn`t much in the way of facilities, but if you are looking for a clean and efficiently run place to stay a couple of nights, then this is ideal.

"Good location "

The hotel was a 3 star for accommodation, it was a small room for three people (double bed and pull out sofa) and small bathroom but it was OK for what we needed. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the location was brilliant, 1 minute walk to Russel Square tube station plus bonus of a small shopping centre across from the hotel, Would stay here again.

"Good Hotel"

Staff very friendly and helpful. Front Desk staff very good. Allowed us to check in an hour early. Overall, Hotel was good. Found it a little scruffy in places, but nothing serious.

Guest rating:


"Attentive, helpful staff"

For a night`s stay this hotel was fine. All staff were polite and helpful. Bathroom needed updating- looked tired and could have been cleaner. Bedroom was fine- good sized beds. Room too warm at night and air con too noisy to have on. Shane restaurant don`t have vegan alternative ti butter, butthey has soya milk so was able to have a good breakfast. Again if vegetarian sausage has been vegan that would have been great.

Breakfast manager was superb he knew it`s was my husbands b day on New Year`s Day and sung happy bday to him with his restaurant staff and a piece of chocolate cake with strawberries and a candle 1st class service

Guest rating:


"Excellent location, knowledgeable staff and excellent breakfast"

We upgraded to an executive room which was bigger, more luxurious and well worth the 25 a night IHG cardholder upgrade fee. Have to mention concierge Gary who was extremely well informed and always friendly and helpful. This was our third pre-Christmas stay and we will return for a fourth.

Guest rating:


"Very Comfortable Stay"

The room was nice. Shame about the view though from room 234. Bloomsbury is a lovely area to stay in not too far from Covent Garden.
