Enjoy a unique London experience with a stay at the Hotel Russell, a 4 star hotel set in a historic building just minutes from the British Museum. The hotel offers 373 guestrooms, ranging from economical single rooms to sprawling suites with unparalleled views of famous Russell Square. With modern amenities and a tube station right outside, the hotel is convenient for business travelers and vacationers alike.
Where Old and New Collide
While the rooms at Hotel Russell feature contemporary design, the communal lounges embrace old world elegance with lavish chandeliers and marble pillars. The on-site Tempus Bar and Restaurant has a delightfully Victorian era vibe, and offers traditional afternoon tea, evening cocktails, and a full dinner menu. The hotel also offers a range of elegant, well-equipped event spaces for both conferences and weddings.
Steps from Russell Square
Whether traveling for leisure or business, guests will find Hotel Russell's location in Bloomsbury, in central London, both charming and convenient. The hotel is located opposite Russell Square and is within five minutes walking distance of top London attractions including the University of London, shopping on Oxford Street, and the West End theater district. There's also no need to hail a taxi or rent a car, as the Underground at Russell Square is mere steps away.
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!!
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 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 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.
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.
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.
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
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.
I had a double room which was evidently a converted single very small no easy chair,insufficient room for clothes and luggage
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 very large bathroom & close proximity to tube station.
Upon first arrival we were given very small room on smoking floor, so we changed.
