Great for one night”

If you just need somewhere to rest your head for one or maybe two nights, this is the place. It is literally TWO seconds walk to the Russell Square Tube station (its right next door) plus there is a Tesco metro open late and quite a few late night bars if you want a few quiet pints. Room basic but clean and comfortable. Some rooms share bathrooms but some en suite. TV and hot drink making facilities. There is no communal area or even reception so it really is just a place to sleep.

This is not the correct name of the hotel. It is actually called Russell House Hotel. ”

Incorrect name. The taxi driver and Google map was misled and took me to another hotel. It was originally a B&B and is later converted. Our room is in the basement, though bigger but not well ventilated. The windows were opened but can hardly be closed and present some security issues so we left it closed. We requested to be moved to G/F but it does not has a proper blind. The semi-transparent white blind can be seen through from the street and hence affect people’s privacy. The hotel is old and doesn’t worth the high price I paid. The only merit is that it is two steps from the Russell Square Station.

Above average”

The staff was friendly and helpful, especially the Filipino guy. However, the facility was beyond acceptance especially with the high price being charged. We got the basement room, probably the worst room ever booked in our experience. The room smells of stale air and very humid and the kitchen didn't work although we have no intention in using it (but was offered as one of the available facility. ) The room that we stayed in was nothing like the pictures being portrayed in the website. The name of the place is not "Russel Square Hotel" but "Russel House Hotel", that alone is not in accordance to the website. Very disappointing and my worst experience not mentioning the disappointment to my family. The most pathetic thing is that the rate is only slightly lower than Holiday Inn Hotel, which is only 30 m away and almost double that of Royal National Hotel. My advice is that Agoda should do a better job investigating the properties that they are offering in their website.

OK for a short stay”

London prices are stupid and I really cannot understand why a standard hotel mid-October can cost in excess of £300 a night... this hotel cost less than £100 and whilst you get naff all its still cheaper than a more expensive hotel. Hotel was old and battered and seriously requires a refit (I noticed that the Chinese have purchased the hotel so I guess on its on the cards!) but then I guess they will triple the rate when this happens. I only spoke to a Filipino lady who was polite however I didn't see anybody after the initial introduction... Would I stay there again? Yes but only for one night but I would make sure that no other chain hotels had a better rate first! It would also be just 1 night maybe 2... the plus plus plus is that its situated in a good location right next to the underground and very convenient to local attractions and theatres etc

Location is the best. But make sure you don’t get room number 2 or you won’t be able to sleep at night. It’s right next to the main entrance and also other guests don’t realize there are other people trying to rest. I also found it expensive for a room with shared bathroom but, again, you’re paying for location.

Way to expensive, very dirty”

I paid 120 pounds for a room without bathroom and breakfast. The locations is good but that's about it. The walls are thin, you can hear people talking in the other rooms. One time I came home at night just to find my door open, the cleaning person had not closed it. Terrible experience. If you want a cheaper room with private bathroom and brekafast check the neighboring president hotel.

Per poche pretese. Ottima posizione ma prezzo troppo alto ”

Arrivati sul posto alle 12.00 abbiamo trovato tutto chiuso e nessuno ha risposto alle mie continue chiamate. Il postino poi ci ha detto che il b&b era stato venduto e che non era sicuro che fosse aperto e in funzione. Abbiamo dovuto attendere le 15 perché qualcuno venisse ad aprire. Un cartello fuori sarebbe stato gradito... Posto vecchio e camere piccole per chi ha davvero poche pretese. Colazione non prevista nonostante sia un b&b. Riscaldamento non funzionante è stato poi riparato dopo essermi lamentata 2 volte. Unica nota positiva è la posizione centrale e proprio accanto alla metropolitana. Prezzo comunque troppo alto, si trova decisamente di meglio!

Russel Square駅の出口からすぐ、というより駅の隣の建物なのでロケーションはよいです。 近くにはスーパー、薬局、レストラン、パブ、大英博物館などもあり、環境としては悪くないとおもいます。  建物はそれなりに古い印象ですがあまり気になりませんでした。ただし階段しかないので大荷物で上の階の部屋に宿泊する場合はきついかもしれないです。チェックアウトは10時、チェックアウト後に荷物を預かってもらいましたが、10ポンド支払いました。 時期にもよるかもしれませんが、1泊\20,000~でシャワーはあるも、トイレ/エアコン無し、このスペックは正直微妙だと思いました。
