Old world elegance

The Hotel Russell is my favorite hotel in the world! You can walk across the street to Russell Park to sit and relax and watch darling dogs cavort. The hotel is conveniently located for walking to many of the sites, not the least of which is the unparalleled British Museum. In addition to the beauty of the hotel, the hotel has an incredible staff who cannot do enough to make your stay pleasant. When I walk into the Russell, I feel as though I am coming home. The English breakfast is delicious.The lounge is gorgeous and the drinks outstanding. My room was immaculate and so comfortable.

Sjarmerende hotell i hyggelige omgivelser

Posted 21-Apr-2016
Pros: Beliggenhet, sjarm og beliggenhet
Cons: Hotellet kan oppgraderes
Location: Se over om beliggenhet Nært British Museum, men også West End ("Theatre land")
Kjempefin beliggenhet litt utenfor, men samtidig svært nært det sentrale turist London. Hotellet ligger i et facinerende og tildels storslagent bygg, som imidlertid har sett sine bestedager. Oppgradering pågår. Rommet vi hadde var greit. Renhold etc var bra.

It's the best!

I've stayed there every year since 2008. Fabulous view overlooking Russell Square, close to EuroStar, British Library and British Museum, great shops, restaurants, supermarket, cinema, and tube station. All the staff goes out of their way for you and the architecture and interior are to die for.

Well located London hotel

Pros: Location and classical style.
Cons: Breakfast tea could have been a bit hotter when served.

A good location for a night in London before going on Eurostar. Very grand looking hotel with imposing marble staircases and we had a comfortable room overlooking the square.

Hotel Russell

Posted 10-Apr-2016
Great location! Tube around the corner, museums, restaurants, a park across the street. Could get access to many tours and experiences from here. Staff were wonderful! The Concierge and doormen were terrific. Carey, our concierge, was great! He always got us what was needed. Love this place. Took the tube back to the airport when we left yesterday and it was about an hour but cost a lot less than a taxi or car service. Great trip!!!

Pros: Service und Freundlichkeit des Personals
Cons: Zimmer teilweise abgewohnt
Location: Beste Lage, dicht am Britischen Musuem und direkt neben der U-Bahn Station. schöner Park direkt vor dem Hotel.
Wir hatten ein Superior Double Room gebucht und diese Zimmerart stand bei Check in leider nicht zur Verfügung. Das Hotel bot uns umgehend von sich aus ein zusätzliches Einzelzimmer an sowie kostenloses Full English Breakfast für 2 Tage und 3 Personen. Service war perfekt - Personal super freundlich. Einfach Spitze!

Much better than I expected

Posted 27-Mar-2016
Pros: Cleanliness, charm, location, and convenient to transportation
Location: Close to the British Museum and the British Library. Theater District is ten minutes away on the tube.
We chose this hotel exclusively because of its vintage Victorian look. We were pleasantly surprised to see that the hotel is very up to date on the inside. Our rooms were immaculate; everything worked; and this hotel had the best free Wifi I've ever had in a hotel, particularly one this large. One of the biggest pluses that we didn't appreciate before we got there is the fact that the Piccadilly Line tube station is right around the corner, which goes directly to and from Heathrow for just a few pounds.
