Nice friendly hotel with helpful staff. We were made to feel very comfortable in a room overlooking the park. The hotel is very conveniently situated to access the Russell Square Underground but we chose to walk everywhere as much as possible or walk to Euston which is also very close. Nice breakfast, good value hotel.
