Stayed at this hotel during the specified period. After reading the reviews, I agree with everyone. It looks like a guest. "Russia" (cat. demolished) is only smaller, the hotel is suitable for young people, who is more impressive is better in Imperial, 3 minutes from Royal (I think it will be more expensive). … More ▾ Stayed at this hotel during the specified period. After reading the reviews, I agree with everyone. It looks like a guest. "Russia" (cat. demolished) is only smaller, the hotel is suitable for young people, who is more impressive is better in Imperial, 3 minutes from Royal (I think it will be more expensive). I just want to give advice to those who monitor their health and nutrition: 1. Not all rooms have refrigerators (there are none in odd numbers) There is a large supermarket nearby, you can buy "goodies" and fruits. There is a kettle in the rooms, you can solve the issue of hot porridge. For an English breakfast, you have to pay an extra 5 pounds, for those who like to eat in the morning "for glory", it may make sense, there are fried eggs and smoked meats - in general, there is something to "fill the gut"...
All pleasant and comfortable travel!

Normal budget hotel. Yes, it was a little noisy, BUT after a whole day on your feet, the noise absolutely did not interfere with being cut down in any position (we had the 2nd floor, the windows into the courtyard of the hotel - entry-exit always)... Breakfast, of course, weak, BUT there is an alternative for 4 50 to buy an English breakfast and eat from the belly : ) which is what we did. … More ▾ Normal budget hotel.

They didn’t steal, they weren’t rude, they helped and went towards generally satisfied... ZATO: near the metro, in the center, in a good area, everything is nearby, if you want - go, if you want - go on foot... dined in a pub at the hotel - 10 pounds per person (with a pint of beer) close to grocery stores and a supermarket - they took bread-cheese-sausage, made sandwiches, bought fruit... in general, a hotel in order to leave things and spend the night, without pretensions, cheap and cheerful : ) if we are going to London again, we will stop there

We didn't like the hotel. Stayed there for 5 days. Noise isolation is terrible! Our room was on the 3rd floor and it felt like you were sleeping on the street. The windows overlooked the courtyard and buses with tourists parked there all the time, which created noise. There was water on the floor all the time in the bathroom. … More ▾ We didn't like the hotel. Stayed there for 5 days. Noise isolation is terrible!

Located 5 minutes walk from the metro, which is the only plus of the hotel. Wouldn't recommend it and don't want to stay there again!

Quite a decent hotel near the Russell Square metro station, nearby - 10 minutes on foot - the British Museum and another 5 minutes - Oxford Street (if for shopping). Nearby - a park, a lot of all sorts of hotels and shops - buy a snack. There is a TESCO at the metro exit opposite. The hotel is large, crowded, very similar to the hotel "Russia" in terms of population and crowding with visitors. … More ▾ Quite a decent hotel near the Russell Square metro station, nearby - 10 minutes on foot - the British Museum and another 5 minutes - Oxford Street (if for shopping). Nearby - a park, a lot of all sorts of hotels and shops - buy a snack. There is a TESCO at the metro exit opposite. The hotel is large, crowded, very similar to the hotel "Russia" in terms of population and crowding with visitors. It's quite noisy in my opinion. Even at night there is some kind of extractor fan, you can hear it even with the window closed. Our window looked into the courtyard. The hotel is similar to the Leningrad courtyards, wells, and there are several of them. (See google map, London - you can see her plan well there). Another of the minuses is a long queue, though it moves quickly, in the morning to the buffet for breakfast. Breakfast - typically English, and for a fee - continental. It is noisy in the dining room (or is it a buffet? ) and if you are sitting at the entrance, then you are not entirely pleased when a crowd of hungry people look at you, especially if they are noisy Chinese, but who have nowhere to sit yet. In general - tolerable if you walk around London all day. But to rest there during the day - will not work. But if you find it tolerable there, then return there on the trail. once it is possible. The main thing is to get used to and not pay attention to some shortcomings. Anyway - this hotel is close to the center.

We rested with my husband in April 2011 at the Royal National Hotel (without a group, on our own). Were satisfied! And now more! Location - 150 meters. The staff at the hotel was friendly and they settled quickly. There was even a Russian-speaking hotel employee at the reception. Room - clean, well-groomed, cleaned well, changed bedding, soap. … More ▾ We rested with my husband in April 2011 at the Royal National Hotel (without a group, on our own). Were satisfied!

Location - 150 meters. The staff at the hotel was friendly and they settled quickly. There was even a Russian-speaking hotel employee at the reception. Room - clean, well-groomed, cleaned well, changed bedding, soap. There was a tea set in the room. Things were safe. You can buy an adapter socket and a hair dryer on bail.

The hotel is positioned as the cheapest of the 3 * - in fact, it is such. . there are no special claims, the room was taken for three - very spacious. Yes. soundproofing is poor. But cleaned every day, towels changed every 2 days. Nobody stole anything - although the money and documents were quietly lying in an unlocked suitcase, a brand new laptop was lying on the sofa, on the last day they went to have breakfast, so the bag with money and jewelry remained open on the bed and everything was fine. … More ▾ The hotel is positioned as the cheapest of the 3 * - in fact, it is such. . there are no special claims, the room was taken for three - very spacious.

Yes, breakfasts are more than modest, but we knew about it in advance. . . But having paid extra for dinners (so as not to run around and not look for where to have dinner) we were pleasantly surprised - the food was excellent. . . And so what do you want from a huge hotel-anthill. . . everything is constantly in motion, someone moves in, someone moves out. . I have been to worse places, for example, the central hotel of Voronezh or, for example, the Volna hotel in Kabardinka, passing through with amenities on the floor and a shower in the yard, which works by the hour from 18 to 20 and has a beating current. . . although of course and in better places, too, was. . . Just don't expect too much and you'll be fine. . If you need a hotel just to relax and recover from the legs killed during the day, then it is quite suitable. . . and its location is more than convenient - near the British Museum and one of the central branches of the Piccadilly metro

How difficult it was to get into this country and how easily I was robbed! In my own room while I was in the bathroom. Come in and get your stuff! Pretty sure it was the housekeeping staff as they have electronic keys for all rooms. I was also embarrassed by one fact: the day before my things disappeared, without knocking and without warning, a man (nationality - Hindu) came in and was surprised to see me, under the pretext that everything was working or something like that, he left. … More ▾ How difficult it was to get into this country and how easily I was robbed!

I was also embarrassed by one fact: the day before my things disappeared, without knocking and without warning, a man (nationality - Hindu) came in and was surprised to see me, under the pretext that everything was working or something like that, he left.
The next day my things were gone. It wasn't money or expensive photography equipment, so I didn't make a fuss.
But there was a very unpleasant aftertaste about the hotel.
Please be careful not to leave your belongings unattended even in the hotel room.

The hotel is not 3 star at all. The one and only advantage is the proximity to the center and some sights, such as the British Museum, which can be reached on foot. Another plus is the presence of a kettle and tea in the room, but this, fortunately, is accepted in all hotels in the UK. Negative: dirty, towels are not white, but gray (it looks like they were bought from another hotel for disposal), poor soundproofing, only soap in the bathroom. … More ▾ The hotel is not 3 star at all.

I traveled a lot in Europe, even lived in 2-star hotels, but I have never seen worse.
