4.0 Mediocre
My bathroom flooded as it didn’t drain properly and there was no strip between the shower and rest of the floor. The single room is not great. Also, one day i was told there is a breakfast buffet, the next day the say the spread has always been for just private bookings, and I found that odd. Great looking hotel and staff was nice, but I was not happy with the stay.
6.2 Okay
Pros:The location was excellent on Russell Square with a Cafe Nero and Pret a Manger next door. The breakfast was excellent and I would highly recommend adding that to your package. The bathrooms were some of the largest I have seen in Europe.
Cons:The staff at Hotel Russell did not measure up to the overall customer service I experienced in England as a whole. They are less than accommodating to guests who booked through discount websites and treat guests who booked directly with them better. The interior is very dated and needs renovation. My friends room on the first night had a very strong cleaning chemical odor. It was unbearable for them because they have some sensitivities. The hotel was unable to move them to another room and we ended up switching rooms with them. The wifi at this hotel is spotty at best. I would not refuse to stay at this hotel again but I would probably avoid it.
4.0 Mediocre
Pros:Old stile nice people, good food
Cons:Very very small room, breakfast needs more item
7.1 Good
Pros:Good location. Historic building with attractive public spaces. Good shower with adequate water pressure.
Cons:Although my room charges were fully prepaid, the front desk clerk insistent on selling me breakfast, which I did not want, and in putting a 50 pound per day hold on my credit card, even though I said I was not going to use any of the hotel's restaurants. Difficult to get into the room because a large cupboard had been situated directly insider the door, almost blocking the passageway into and out of the room.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros: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.
Cons:I couldn't stay longer!!
9.1 Wonderful
Pros:Excellent location with easy access to both Russell Square and Holborn Tube stations. Lots of very good local pubs and eateries and only minutes away from the British Museum. My room was fairly large by English standards with a very nice bathroom and very comfortable bed. An excellent breakfast with a good selection of both cooked and cold items was available and included in the room rate.
Cons:My stay was short so didn't note any problems whatsoever.
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:Central location, comfortable large room with large tub and shower, full breakfast, friendly helpful staff

Cons:Excellent location, great staff
