Kimpton Fitzroy London is a Grade II* listed landmark building that occupies the eastern flank of Russell Square in Bloomsbury. The opening of the 334-room hotel this spring has restored the original grande dame to her original glory while administering a shot of adrenaline to the heart of London’s most literary neighbourhood.
The hotel is steeped in history, the Frederick Hotels Company having first opened its doors in 1898 Lavishly appointed and boasting a striking terracotta exterior – with four British Queens guarding the entrance – it was always intended to be a home to glamour and indulgence. Inside Kimpton Fitzroy London, striking, contemporary interior designs by Tara Bernerd & Partners and Russell Sage Studio pay homage to the building’s illustrious history while providing stylish form and function for the modern traveller.Kimpton Fitzroy London hopes to create a hub not only for its guests but also for Londoners who have a passion for great food, fabulous cocktails and memorable nights in the city.
During the hotel's soft opening, attractive rates are available as the team find their feet and the last pieces of the 'jigsaw' are put in place, such as Neptune restaurant (open from 25 May) and the Palm Court (open from 1 July).

This is a beautiful building and it has been nicely restored, it is noticeable that the staff are very polite and friendly. It’s an old building so rooms can be odd shapes, this tends to add to the character. Our room was good, 538, but we reorganised the chairs a bit as they are a little large for the space. Good sleep was had and everything worked. Bathroom was a little odd, the sink does not sit square under the wall lights, so if you stand at the sink there is a light right in your face, I doubt is was designed like that. Nightmare shower, too many knobs, no instructions, and not at all logical. Got several soakings. No fan or if so it was not working. Electric towel rail, no way to switch on seemed odd, I like warm towels even in the summer. Breakfast pretty much ok, service can be a bit haphazard but hot items very good. Please put some loose sugar next to the cereals on the buffet, it’s quite normal to want sugar on cereal and I got fed up asking every morning. WiFi worked well everywhere, what a refreshing change. Would I go back? Definitely. Collapse

I travel extensively and use hotels all over the world in excess of 100 nights a year. This has been my first experience of the Kimpton brand and it certainly brings a distinct touch of class to the IHG brand. The Fitzroy is a 10 minute walk from Euston or Kings Cross mainline stations and is just around the corner from the Russell Square underground station. Russell Square Park is directly opposite. The building itself is a grand dame and it oozes character and quality. The interior is a superb combination of traditional and modern and there are intriguing and charismatic nooks and corners that are styled and furnished with the finest quality materials. Whilst the website suggested that the hotel was fully occupied it never felt busy and it was possible to find a private space at all times. As a Priority Club elite Member I received the customary upgrade and was also able to defer my check out by an hour. The room was ready for the published check in time however, as I was 15 minutes early I was escorted into the Burr and Co Coffee Shop and offered a hot drink. I felt that was a nice touch. Check in was very professional and interactions with staff felt very natural and spontaneous on all occasions. The public areas of the hotel were extremely attractive and comfortable and the whole ambiance very atmospheric, especially the small sitting room close to the Palm Court. Every area of the hotel was spotlessly clean. Rueben was my receptionist and he was warm, efficient and professional. Security at the hotel is very high and the lifts are operated from ground level by swiping your room key. Guests are then directed to a specific lift and it automatically takes you to the correct floor. I was staying in a junior suite and this was a delight. There was ample space which consisted of a small entrance lobby which opened in to the main room. There was a fireplace area, a sitting area fitted perfectly into an angular window alcove, a writing desk and a large four poster bed. Double doors opened into a spacious marble bathroom with twin sinks, a free standing bath tub and a separate rain shower. There were a large number of quality towels and two bathrobes and the toiletries were plentiful and of very high quality. The bed was incredible comfortable with high quality linens. The lighting had four settings and an appropriate mood could be set. The air conditioning system was more of a climate control and was soundless. As the windows had very wide double glazing there was absolutely no noise from outside the hotel. I sampled the Burr and Co coffee shop, Palm Court Restaurant and Fitz’s Bar. All were very atmospheric in their own way and music was provided in the evening in Fitz’s. Prices were very reasonable for such a high quality establishment. Breakfast was taken in the Neptune restaurant and this was a choice between continental buffet and full table service a la carte. The food was of the very highest quality and individually prepared. My server, Eva, was extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. She went so far as to prepare my toast. Fruit juices were available and the orange juice was freshly squeezed. The Kimpton Fitzroy is an upper 5* hotel offering a 5* service, catering for the more discerning guest. My visit was immensely enjoyable. Collapse

This hotel is stunning. All of the common areas are well kept, clean and beautiful. Front desk staff, bellman and concierge were all so friendly and helpful! Location was great! Close to the underground and walking distance from good restaurants and pubs. Also, easy taxi and Uber rides from a lot of the attractions. Our family of 4 stayed in a superior room with 2 double beds. It was spacious and nice, but lacked storage so we weren't able to really unpack for our 5 nights there. With 2 teenage girls, myself and husband, that was a little hard to deal with. I felt like there could have been enough room to include a dresser of some sort. I was also disappointed with the restaurants in the hotel. Breakfast was mediocre at best and pretty expensive for what you get. The service was very slow. The only place that we could really get pre-dinner drinks and appetizers was in the Fitz bar, which was lovely, but our teenagers couldn't come in with us. The coffee shop was good for sweets, but didn't really have a very robust breakfast menu. I would give the Kimpton Fitzroy 5 stars if they had a little more storage in the rooms and better restaurants. Collapse

We took a last minute deal and we’re not disappointed but it depends on your expectations. What’s to like: The hotel is well positioned next to Russel square tube which if you use the tube is perfect. It’s very grand and has a good feel to it, the finishings are nice and feel quality. The staff are very helpful I really could not fault anyone we encountered. The bed was very comfortable and the bedding was again quality. The room was exceptional well equipped, also if you forgot something they would generally help out. The shoe shine was a nice touch. Nespresso machine and pods. What’s not to like, The room was small, but we were aware of this and for the deal we had I felt like it represented outstanding value. Inward facing rooms if it’s not what you like, but again I’m fairly hard to please and it wasn’t a problem. Overall I would definitely go back, I might pay for the bigger room if I was actually going to be in it longer. Collapse

The architecture is amazing. The service is excellent and location is perfect. The ballroom was designed by same person who designed the ballroom on the titanic! (According to the lady I spoke with on the frount desk) the concierge was faultless and more than helpful with directions or anything you needed. I would stay here again Collapse
