    Beautiful building and the rooms are nice. Negatives: There was a problem with the electricity and it took too long to fix. No sockets next to the bed.

    I didn't find the reception staff rude. I was polite to them and they were polite back. Dramatic architecture and a very good meal. Good value for groups.

    If you have room 347 then ask for a swap. These fans outside the window will keep you up all night

    The style of the hotel is very elegant. The rooms are a bit small but quite comfortable.

    Small rooms, great breakfast, very good widow if you pay for 24 hour voucher. Fairly poor service at the Tempus bar. But overall nice ambiance and hotel is undergoing major renovations and upgrades

    Wonderful service! I walked in from the street to ask if they would print off a boarding pass for me. No questions asked. Nearby SmartHostel, President hotel and Celtic Hotel would not do it for me.

    The free wifi is a little cumbersome, as you have to input the same data every 30 minutes

    Breakfast-good check in - ok below average (shouldn't give trainee peak shift) agent seemed unable to multitask he disrupted the process at least 3 times & 4got to give me the room key.

    Beware of the painfully slow wifi. It's available free for 30 mins only before they cut you off (unless you pay extra) and it too nearly that long to download an app update!

    Had two bad stays here and won't be coming back. Incredibly noisy in all areas of hotel particularly when they have function on. Road noise bad, night staff noisy, Draw handles missing, generally poor

    Street wifi reaches the 7th floor so no need to buy wifi here.

    There's a ChargeBox here, so you can charge you're phone securely in one of the lockers-useful if you've forgotten your charger!

    Genuinely hilariously poor bar service, almost worth a visit to see it, if it was an intentional floor show it would win comedy awards. It isn't, it's just a shit expensive way of buying a drink.

    Free wifi is slow and the sign up didn't like my iPhone (fine on MacBook) kicks you off after 30 mins but you can start a new session straight away.

    Concierge was rude spent 15 minutes talking to a British couple & flicked me off when I asked about the pharmacy. When I asked for a map he just pointed it out. Not helpful at all

    I'd avoid the single rooms as they are very small, poorly maintained and next to very noisy air conditioning units. Not worth the money.

    Great location! Double Superior room without a fridge! Awful and really not fresh food in restaurant - for your own safety don't eat there. Doesn't deserve 4 stars, you pay only for location

    Maybe one of the worst hotel I've seen lately - no wifi in rooms (in 2011 ???), yellow water when it's time to take a bath ... At least the barmen are very kind ...

    Do not stay here, they seem to be determined to get rid of regular customers. Especially the front desk who have either never been trained

    My tip is to not stay at the Hotel Russell, it's terribly outdated and by far not worth THE 4 Star Rating, dissapointing hotel.

    Номера маленькие, но уютные , огромный плюс этого отеля - расположение : 1 мин до метро, напротив автобусная остановка и место сбора на экскурсии, 10 мин пешком до Oxford street

    La atención del personal es espectacular. La habitación pequeña pero no eche de menos que fuera mayor. Algo de frío talvez en la habitación. Situación inmejorable.
