Good deal overall, book in advance for better prices, it is located on a pleasant zone with quick access to the Piccadilly tube line that will take you to the main places to visit. Good size rooms, nice staff and we got full English breakfast although we didn't pay for it. It does get a bit crowded with lots of...

Very huge hotel with everyday cleaning services. At the time we have gone (26 Dec 16), the whole hotel was full, yet the staff were eager to help us.They were very helpful and provided us with all the information we asked. The room we took was very quiet. It is highly recommended as it is a cheap hotel in central...

This hotel is very close to Russell Square & the British Museum, there is a bus stop just outside and a metro station after a 4 minute walk. Also, there are many restaurants in the area. The room (and the toilet) was spacious enough and clean. On the other hand, the hotel gets very crowded and it is difficult to...

Stayed at this hotel 28th December 2016. Got a great deal at this hotel a few months before our arrival. 3 nights for the price of 2 at just over £200.00 for 2 people with full English breakfast. Hotel is in a good location if you don't mind a short walk to the main attractions. Could do with a bit...

Stay here in November for 4 nights on a short break to London. Ideally located in Russell Square, and underground station just round the corner. 15 mins walk from kings cross, and 10 from Euston. Huge hotel, lots of bus tours stay here. This is the second time we have stayed here, chosen purely for location. Yes it's not a...

Hotel is too too big and had two wings. Staff is good and knows their job as they manage very large inventory, so they are efficient. If you arrive early - just visit the hotel , show your voucher and they provide you with the locker facilities. This is good for the travellers who are on a short visit or...

We recently visited London and stayed at the Royal National Hotel for seven nights. The proximity to many tube stations made it easy to get around on numerous lines, in a timely manner which made the location most convenient. The hotel is clean and relatively well kept. We had a good idea of what we were getting into in terms...

This hotel is better for a short stay. It is very 80s and needs a bit of an update with room design. The worst thing was the bed, it was very uncomfortable for me, and I ended up going out onto the streets of London at 4am to just walk because I couldn't sleep. Bathroom is ok, and location is...

The entrance looks fine, well located really close to the British Museum, a metro station, supermarket, busstation. Rooms and entrance look good, just the hallways are worn down and in need of a paintjob. It is a very big hotel and the signing is poor so it took us a while to find our room. Beds are good and it...
