Staying near Russel sq is an excellent choice if on business or just visiting. Lots of nice restaurants, pubs and small stores nearby. Also Russel sq tube and Holborn is within easy walking distance. Imperial is one of several similar hotels around Russel sq, owned by the same Company. The buildings look like really terrible from the outside, but really...

On Friday the 31st of March, I checked in the Imperial Hotel for two nights. I was given a lovely en-suite room, which was overlooking the court yard. Not only was breakfast included with the price of the hotel, I was also given two vouchers, which provided me with a free meal on both nights I stayed in the hotel....

Like stated in the title the best thing about this hotel is the location, super close to Russell Square Station, restaurants and if you're on a Contiki tour, the basement is a 5 minute walk. The major disappointment was the room, it was tiny and very outdated. This was the first night of my holiday and I ended up getting...

When booking my recent trip to London with Superbreak, I had the choice between this hotel or the President (the hotel joined on next door) However, as we have stayed at the President before, and the Imperial was a bit more money, I thought id splash out and go for the nicer hotel... All the staff were friendly and helpful,...

Every year the 8th grade class of my daughter's school travels from Houston to London the week before Spring Break. This is the second year they have stayed at the Imperial. I can see why. The staff is very nice and the breakfast, though not fancy, is plentiful. The rooms are fine for students. That is the backstory for why...

Conveniently situated near to the Russell Square Underground with convenient bus routes into Trafalgar Square and central London. Chose the hotel for a four night break. We are still her leaving tomorrow 31 March 2017. We were offered a good package in an Executive room overlooking the court yard. Initially disappointed not to be overlooking Russell Square Gardens but Southampton...

I was so grateful to the staff at the Imperial Hotel who held a package for me after I had checked out. They held it for about a week until I was in London again and I was so grateful; they really went above and beyond for me. The rooms are clean and comfortable and they are a good value...

The hotel looks very dated when you walk in because of the counter but hey who cares about that. The guy on Reception was very courteous. The room was spotless and sheets lovely and crisply pressed. Cannot fault it at all. The breakfast was not that good, some of the bacon was uncooked, the scrambled egg was swimming and the...

Neighbourhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Imperial Hotel is the flagship of Imperial London Hotels. We're proud of it for a reason. Offering breathtaking views over London's greatest public square, it reflects every ounce of our dedication to service and value. Like all our hotels, the Imperial combines a remarkable location with the great facilities and friendly service of a family-run business. At the Imperial, though, while the price remains extremely reasonable, we add an extra dash of something special. The location is remarkable, connecting guests to the rest of London in minutes. In addition to the central Atrium Bar & Cafe, facilities include a casino and a gift shop. Restaurants and cafes offer plenty of choice to families and business travellers alike. Indulge in the intriguing delights of Coffee and Candy. Enjoy a late night at the Night and Day Bar, serving classic pub fare at great prices. And relax; we've been doing this since 1837, and we know how to make your stay a restful one. ... more   less
