    Hotel Russell " perfect location"

    Ratings scored out of 6
    Overall Score: 4
    Value for money: rated 4/6
    Location: rated 6/6
    Cleanliness: rated 4/6
    Staff Rating: rated 5/6

    We wanted a very central position so we could do both the theatres and the shopping. The Russell Hotel was the ideal place as its in Russell Square from where we walked almost everywhere except the Kensington Museums and Harrods. Staff were excellent and the room was perfectly satisfactory. Yes we would stay again.
