The staff were helpful and the place is good value for area Breakfast was very basic. The room was freezing and difficult to sleep in although the staff provided an electric heater (which helped a little). Old and dingy generally.

I recently stayed in this hotel for one night. It did get me out of a tight spot and it was cheap. I will say that the hotel has three saving graces; the location, the price and the staff. We managed about 4 +/- hours sleep between the hours of approx one and just after 5, being woken by noise...

As a group of three young women staying in London for a week, the Ruskin worked wonderfully. The location was fabulous, within short distance of four tube stops, and was literally a stone's throw away from the British Museum. The hotel staff was very friendly, and was always willing to help us out by giving us directions, maps, or restaurant...

I was staying in London for a 5 day training course, so I needed somewhere cheap to stay within easy reach of the training venue. Te Ruskin fitted the bill admirably, being a few minutes walk from Holborn (my venue being located out East on the Piccadilly Line). Being located right next to the British Museum, just off Russell Square...

First, the good news: The Ruskin's location is unbeatable, literally within the shadow of the British Museum. The staff is also very helpful, cheery, & attentive. The shower always had hot water, the water pressure was great, & the entire hotel was clean. Here are the tradeoffs: The rooms are quite small, the shower down the hall is miniscule (30...

I think this hotels best advantage is the location. In comparison to other locations such as Bayswater, Paddington or Sussex Gardens I found it a little bit overpriced.But then again, I didn't spend a lot of money on taxi's or buses, I could easily walk home after visiting theatres or restaurants in the West End. Everything was OK, it was...
