Very over priced
location was fantastic no
Concierge people are very nice. Single room has no place for luggage
very central fantastic location.
Location is good Size of the room, the bed and the badthroom is too small, (very small).
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.
Access to tube trains This hotel is not a star hotel. Rooms are very small
The hotel is in a good spot, next to oxford street. breakfast was an extra £9.95 each per day.
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.
Location. Location. Helpful and pleasant staff. Cold room in morning. Too few lifts. Lack of TV channels.
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!!
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 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).
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 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.
The very large bathroom & close proximity to tube station. Upon first arrival we were given very small room on smoking floor, so we changed.
the athmosphere I had a double room which was evidently a converted single very small no easy chair,insufficient room for clothes and luggage
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.
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 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
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.
Bar was nice Room was small and underwhelming consider g how much we paid.
Architecture and Services are Excellent. Food is great. Staff is A+. Elevators need a tune up. Bathrooms are slippery.
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
The room was a good size, nicely decorated, clean. Facilites included TV, stereo, air conditioning which is very important. Bathroom clean with nice toiletries.
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.
Good quality fitments Small room
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.
The staff are extremely helpful and location is excellent. The television selection is poor and internet costs far too much.
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 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.
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.
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.
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??
The location is central and the views from the top floors are stunning. There are many excellent restaurants nearby.
Very handy for Eurostar Toweld old and hard. Shower door didn't fit well
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.
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.
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
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.
Lo recomiendo 100%
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.
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.
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.
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
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).
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.
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.
Easy access of subway, restaurants&pubs and shopping center No fridge in the rooms so no possibility of drinking cold beverage
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
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
Excellent location Staff did not understand a small glass of wine and kept serving and charging for medium glasses
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
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.
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 and friendly, informative staff
Rooms are hot and small.
Location My room
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
The location, very quiet, relax. The spacios of me beedrom was little
Location and comfort of room. Bathroom was decent size.
The attention to any and all details was excellent. The staff in both the front and the restaurant were very friendly and helpful. Nothing
very pleasant stay, just right for the theatre and the shops!
Location Slow lifts
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.
Location Room cleaning no free wirless area...
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 !!
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.
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.
High standard of cleanliness. lovely spa facility. great location Hard pillows
Very convenient to conference location next door. Close proximity to tube and to Convent Garden. Tired interior of hotel overall and rooms
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.
friendly staff, good atmosphere the lack of digital tv
Good location for Covent Garden, good customer service. N/A
The room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. The TV was dated and had a very limited number of channels.
very helpful excellent staff temperature control in room,high charge for telephone
It was a business trip so only slept there but breakfast was lovely. Excellent location too!
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.
location staff on reception
very unfriendly staff, and the whole hotel needs urgent refurbishment.
We were upgraded to a suite, which was wonderful. The staff were very helpful and the location is excellent.
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.
Excellent service. Great breakfast.
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.
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.
great city centre location friendly staff lovely room
Hotel location is key for seeing all theatre; either side of the Thames.
Loved the location. Room was small but very comfortable. Staff were helpful and friendly Quire pricey but then it is London
location was great....charming hotel...and very comfortable room
Great Location with helpful staff breakfast not included, elevator system was a problem and bathroom wasn´t very clear.
Polite and helpful staff and location close to where I was going out I could not at first work the lift nor put the lights on in my room because I did not know I had to put my room card in the slot. The sign in the lift is not noticeable enogh and n arrival I went up and down a few times before giving up and using the stairs. Next time I wil know.
The Hotel staff we very friendly and helpful. I found the price of the Hotel fair considering the style and location. Howvever I feel the Hotel could benefit from being updated. Also i found the gym facilities disappointing.
Just the most fantastic central position - easy to walk Covent Garden, Piccadilly, Regent St room was starting to look a bit tired furnishings wisw
Great staff. Superb location. Room upgrade. Cosy bar. Staff turnover appears low, nice to see some of the same faces. Afternoon tea reliable. Tea was always hot. On line check in sketchy. A/c noisy Tea bags missing in room Turn down service was intermittent
Location was excellent, it is about 30 footsteps from the hotel till the one of theatres. view from the window was poor, smell in the room.
Location superb! The hotel is tired and old. My room was small, tatty and very cold (wind blowing in through the old wood framed windows). I won't stay here again.
Central Posiition to visit London Very small Bedroom
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.
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.
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!
Breakfast service is very nice. The room was extremely small, poorly furnished and noisy.
Good size room Renovating the place, no heating in room
Excellent time at this hotel! Everyone was very friendly! Nothing :)
Location was convenient Was cold, old and dirty
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
access to city centre
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.
location for theatre and access to transport system obviously unavoidable but there was some building work taking place to the hotel
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.
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.
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.
Very central to all our needs.
The staff were brilliant Needs Air Con
Very out dated in need of refurb. no AC too hot room service food very
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
Spacious and comfortable. Quiet; good breakfast.
Location of hotel was great. Oxford Street, Restaurants,Theatres and Tube station, all within 5 minute walk. Hotel very comfortable. Staff very helpful.
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.
Cozy, comfortable, great value for money. Very attentive and polite personnel. Strategic location
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.
Central position for Theatres etc
Great shower. No wifi in room Convoluted route to room.
The upgrade to a superb room on the top floor - couldn't fault it unless that was the deluxe double that had been originally booked. Excellent hotel and well placed for business meetings in the City.
Excellent location, nicely renovated, modern hotel We stayed at the end of November and it was exceptionally cold in London. The hotel room was cold and the heater made terrible noise, but had to be on all the time. No heating in the otherwise beautiful bathroom.
Great location for shopping and the theatres and most of the main sites to see. Also had a great breakfast. Size of the room could have been larger for the price paid.
The TV Breakfast issues No knowlege of local area Language barriers
We liked the modern decor. Our room was facing the road and was extremly noisy.
Facilities and location
The size of the room - very spacious Not applicable
I found the location perfect for sightseeing. The room was very nice and as a venue is was very good also. Food was excellent:-) I was a shame I wasn't able to access the internet. The solution you have chosen at the hotel did not work for me as my company (banking) apparently have restrictions which make it impossible to lock on to a web browser before the internet access is given...
Staff is very very kind, cleaning is not the best inside the whole structure, but inside our room is basically good. Some very little I repeat very little details that make the difference for this very high level hotel: the holder for hygenic paper was broken, the hairdryer tubular was rapaired with insulating tape and for this reason it was a little sticky, the bath tub had very little splinterings on edge, the window was stopped with a piece of folded paper and in conclusion the tv controller had not the cover for the batteries and it was replaced with a certainly sticky coloured tape .
The Location. All theatres in walking distance, lots of restaurants and Soho shops. Close to underground. The rooms are really small (I am British). Minimal mini bar and hopeless main bar. Remote control did not work, tissue box empty. Dissapointing room service menu. So although it looked the part, I was very dissapointed, not value for money
A very clean and luxurious designer hotel. Great food. Very helpful and pleasant staff. The room was a little cramped. Desk was too big for the room. Feel the room could be bigger for a Superior room.
it was central for my needs, and all staff were very helpful on all points. problems getting a six seater taxi service.
Good restaurant, nice building, clean. No hot water, only luke water. When problems ocurred during extending my stay, different solutions were promised by different persons, no promises were kept though.
Good clean hotel in central London Only the check in was bad. My colleague arrived ahead of me only to find he could not check in as the reservation was not in the system. The reservation and pin number that was on the e-ticket was not accepptable and only the original print was enough to convince the front desk that we had a reservation. It was only as a secondary measure that I brought this with me as your system led me to believe that the booking number and pin was sufficient. My colleauge had to wait an hour for me to arrive and this was at 11pm when we had a busy day both behind and ahead of us. For the above reason I will not use this service again. It's simply not acceptable.
Excellent location Waiting to check in
The helpful from the staff who able to allocate a room for my very early check-in. A room is assigned which is a disable room. However, this is not the same expectation when I book a 'Superior Double Room'. I have not asked for a change as I have a very busy schedule during my stay in London.
Perfect location because of walking distance to major shoppping streets and Covent Garden/Leicester Square. Good concierge services. Housekeeping started cleaning round 9 am, the noise from the hall and nearby rooms woke me up every morning. Obviously paying for location and not room size. Air-conditioning makes considerable noise.
Not much just a city hotel
Service, location, history and character Small 'standard' rooms, only just large enough for a couple with minimal luggage.
easy access to londons attractions
The rooms were very nice and well equipped. Based only on this, I would stay here again. The renovations were very intrusive. No elevator access, except through a service elevator, which was always jammed at peak times. No stairs access below the 1st floor, which besides being inconvenient, made me wonder about safety in a fire. No hot water on the second day was literally "icing" on the cake. I have to remember that eventually the renovations will be complete, so I actually might give this place another shot.
The location was excellent. I work in holborn and was easily able to walk in. Covent garden very close. The attitude of the staff when the boiler failed. Discourteous and off hand. Almost made me feel that it was my fault. No offer of complimentary breakfast, reduced rate. Not even an apology
V friendly staff Too hot !
Hotel convenient for tube and acces to London The hotel was being revamped - lift inadequate. Heating did not work. Staff coped as best they could
I loved the central location,Excellent for a short stay
Friendly staff with a clean and comfortable room.
Location was very good A little expensive for what it was...
design of room was good (tastefully decorated). Bed/linen very adequate Boiler broke down on 26.11.10 and no hot water for shower or even a wash...only gave 10% discount for inconvenience . Also.. lift not working (had to use staff lift the corridors/reception was a building site...there were no stairs to 1st floor and could not establish where the fire excape was (and staff could not provide that information) Breakfasts were not included in tariff
Nice amenities. Great location. Air conditioning never cooled room completely during a warm spell.
Good location. Excellent air conditioning. The room had a strong smell of disinfectant / air freshener. The shower did not work.
The staff at all levels were friendly, helpful and courteous. Excellent Dark and small rooms. I would not have stayed had I realised the huge amount of refurbishment going on.
