Beautiful building with lovely, spotlessly clean rooms. Staff are great, very professional and friendly. Lovely bar with great cocktails. Afternoon tea was disappointing and breakfast was let down in a few areas but on the whole this was a very good stay.

Very nice hotel, clean room, very good breakfast. Two minutes to Russel Square Underground Station, near British Museum, covent Garden etc. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. The room was quite small, but comfortable.

Lovely building in the heart of London. Staff as a whole were excellent and the room was nice. There was a problem with our bathroom that wasnt resolved even though staff were notified in advance. The breakfast was not 5*, although the staff were apologetic, we waited an hour for our food and when it arrived it was not good. I think the kitchen were having a bad day because other guests were walking out or cancelling their orders. A Premier Inn breakfast is so much better and they do not receive as higher rating as this hotel.

Principal London July 2018

Lovely hotel, with excellent staff, who were very friendly and always had a smile and a hello. Good choice at breakfast, and lots of bottled water in the room, which was fab as the weather was hot. We chose a family room, which had two proper double beds, much better than the second bed as a sofa bed which is offered in many other hotels. The hotel has kept lots of the decorative details of the old Russell Hotel, while being thoroughly modern throughout. Make sure you find George, the resident dragon, and give his head a rub. I haven’t stayed in Russell Square before, and I was impressed. The square is a lovely little park, with a cafe. The hotel is close to Kings Cross, St Pancras, the British Museum, Covent Garden and the Theatre District. Perfect for our family!! Thank you x
