Great Russel Hotel, Bloomsbury

Stay Date: 02/12/07, a customer who stayed at 5* The Principal London in Russell Square wrote this review.

This is a supposedly luxury hotel. I took my mum for a short one night stay for Christmas so wanted it to be special as she has had a bad year. Our room overlooked a huge, loud generator which was See More  Read more information on all night. The shower door didn't close, the toilet roll holder and towel ring fell off. Although we had a fridge it was empty of'mini bar' things. I had to ask for a needle and thread as mybutton fell off and none were provided. No space for any toiletries, never mind 2 sets etc. All small niggles I know, but I wanted it to be really special and the lack of sleep because of the noisemade for a very long tiring next day.   Collapse  Hide

King Tut Weekend

Stay Date: 30/11/07, a customer from Lancashire who stayed at 5* The Principal London in Russell Square wrote this review.

The River Boat to the O2 was really easy and a nice way to travel. The Hotel Russell was in a great location, although about 150 steps at the tube stattion to get to street level-not easy if you See More  Read more information dont lke lifts! We used Euston station and walked. Tower of London was not as good as I remember, but it was many years ago, we should have gone round with an official guide rather than on our own   Collapse  Hide

Our hotel reception was impressive,marble entrance stunning! Staff very helpful, paricularly 1 concierge. Our bedroom was very small. Air conditioning & towel rail did not work on arrival, however See More  Read more information when the maintenance man arrived he was concerned, polite and apologetic, soon we had a warm room. The hotel we found to be well situated for purpos of visit. The British museum & the Tereacotawarriors. Glad we visited but the Tutankahmun exhibition for us it had the edge. It was a wonderful. When you look at the detail and you realise they were all crafted 3000 years ago and people did not haveglasses then, how skilled must they have been.   Collapse  Hide

It was not a good idea to stay Friday and Saturday nights in December owing to office parties which involved loud music and drunken guests.

Ending the Year in London!

Stay Date: 28/12/07, a customer who stayed at 5* The Principal London in Russell Square wrote this review.

Superbreak did us proud! The Hotel Russell was perfect for getting around and a superb place to stay. From the decor to the staff to the sheer comfort it was a pleasure to be there. The concierge See More  Read more information were particularly helpful and friendly. I'd really like to have stayed longer. and the suggestion of the River transfer to the O2 was a bonus! Thanks for that. It's really the way to do it in style!Taking in both the Terracotta army and Tutankhamun exhibitions, I was struck by the similarity in ambitions that left such a legacy of beauty and craftmanship. The search for immortality seems to havelong engaged people's minds, and there was plenty to reflect on as well as admire about the creativity and reourcefulness of humanity. Whilst different in lay out, both were well worth the visit andwell thought out. Good idea to get the recorded tour as well, to fill in all those details, not to mention having the sultry voice of Omar Sharif accompanying you for an hour or two!   Collapse  Hide
