We Visit London Last August. We had one Double and one single room at the 8th floor. The Hotel is located 200 meters from Russel Square station (it is perferct if you are comming from Heathrow). rooms are nice and comfortable but there is no Air condition so if you have hot weather it could be a problem.

A bargain hotel in a great location, great breakfast BUT...the staff could do with learning some people skills! Jackie Chan at breakfast would benefit from learning to make eye contact & maybe the odd smile!! And the hotplate at meal times could benefit from someone who has previous experience with human beings! We are not cattle! Reception staff very good,...

Great value for money for such an expensive city, great location, comfort rooms. On the other hand the wifi was out of order for 3 days and on the other two nights of our stay was too slow. Moreover, the faucet was the traditional british, which means that you have to chose between freezing cold and burning hot, but those...

I'm a travel agent and booked myself the cheapest I could for 1 night stay in London without it being a hostel! I needed something that I could crash in after the long haul from Perth to London and the single room worked perfectly for me. Nice bathrooms and a comfy bed. Staff here are outstanding. Always willing to help...

Stayed one night whilst on a course. Very close to Russell square tube, couple of minutes walk. Booked a single room but actually got a double. First impressions weren't great, corridors are very dated, scuffed walls, brass numbers screwed to doors (not always the same size!) room was basic but fine. Woke up early with the service elevator. Breakfast was...

Like many hotels in the area, this is a large hotel designed to fit as many rooms in. In saying that, the room I had was comfortable and just a single. More than enough room, wired internet access and comfortable bed. The breakfast was good and included in my room price. Russel Sq is a great location to base yourself...

This hotel is huge! I stayed here on business and you can't argue with the price for central London. The check-in process was quick and the reception staff were friendly. I booked a single room which comprised of 2 single beds, the toilet was in a separate room to the bathroom. The room itself was very clean but I feel...

The room and bathroom were small, the quality of breakfast was average, but the location is great as the tube is very close but you can also walk to soho, British museum, covent garden and Oxford street.

Hotel a little tired could do with some decorating, the bathroom sink a little too high (not everyone is 6') and breakfast could have been better. Service very helpful no problems at all with Staff they could not do enough. The hotel was clean and the atrium bar was excellent. We would go again. The location was great for us.

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
