Historical Traveller Reviews of Park Inn London - Russell Square Hotel

Great place and location

from A TripAdvisor Member
The bonnington was a nice hotel with a great location to both russel square tube stop and the big bus tour company stop. We had a excutive double room so it was a decient size for london athough you must remember that all rooms are small and beds even smaller. Although the room was listed as a king bed it was really a queen or double even. Others were complaining at desk about the unexpected small beds but I had been prepared! I think it was worth the few extra buck for the excutive room which inculded breakfast.

Loved the Bonnington

from Laureltraveler
Stayed at the Bonnington in Bloomsbury for 6 nights in July. It is a great deal. Price was very reasonable & included a hot breakfast and VAT. Granted, my single room was very small. But it had everything I needed, including good airconditioning (it was hot in London in July). The bathroom was spacious, modern and very clean. The whole place was very clean. I had asked for a quiet room, and got one. The staff were uniformly friendly and helpful. On the day I had to leave early, Breakfast was delivered on time to my room at 6 am as requested. The location is great - a five-minute walk to the British Museum, near bus and subway stops, shops and resturants handy. It isn't glamorous, but it is very comfortable.

Generally Good

from eatwelld
Stayed 30 May. Searching the web for accommodation in London i hit upon the Bonnington. We were due to attend a wedding in London and worked out that i could save £85 by staying over the cost of a return taxi. Other opinions on this website said that the Bonnington was generally good. From our visit i would agree, the hotel is clean, the staff helpful, the rooms better than elsewhere i have stayed in London, the beds very confortable and rooms air conditioned as well. We booked 3 rooms, 2 twins and a single for a total cost of £115 including breakfast. We requested that all of the rooms were consecutive and were very pleased to find that all 3 rooms were on the same floor with 2 consecutive. Despite a 2pm (?) check in time we were able to gain access to 2 of our rooms at 11am. Hotel food was good and arrived hot with only a 15 minute delay from ordering. The average aspects were the morning breakfast but only from the perspective that we were there at a busy time and there was a queue for the tables and service was a little slow. The food was fine and unlimited. The below average aspect has been mentioned elsewhere on this site in that the rooms at the front of the hotel are noisy 24 hours a day. Overall, this is a great hotel for the money and i would stay again provided my room was at the back of the hotel.

Great deal, Great hotel

from redmud
We stayed at the Bonnington in April, 2004. First off, we got a great deal on their web site - as normally their rack rates are quite high. I don't know if the hotel would be worth the rack rate. Check their web site often as they have great deals all the time!We had a twin room, which we found to be Very large by London standards (we stayed in 3 hotels in London throughout the trip). This was our favorite hotel that we stayed at. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom was large and well equipped, it was very clean, and again the room was huge! The staff were also quite friendly and helpful, and the hotel is in a good location. 2 blocks away from the British museum, and it's about 2 or 3 blocks away from either Holborn or Russel Square undergrounds. For a tip: good, well-priced, clean and even a bit fancy restaurant two stores down from the hotel called ASK is a great Italian restaurant. Very convenient!I would definitely recommend this hotel and we will return to it again if we can get a deal. Two thumbs up :)

A Wonderful Stay!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We spent 3 nights at the Bonnington, April 4-6. Since there were 5 of us, we required 2 rooms; a double and a triple. Both rooms were adequately sized by London standards and the room rates were reasonable. The rooms were very clean and well-kept throughout our stay. The hotel has a very good breakfast buffet that was included in our pre-paid room rate. The hotel location is excellent, centrally located and a very short walk to the Russell Square Underground station. I would definitely stay there again. My only gripe was that the TV in our room was on a stand that was too short to allow for proper viewing while reclining on the bed. But that's nit-picking, isn't it. All in all, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Bonnington to family or friends who would like to visit London.

Bad nights sleep

from A TripAdvisor Member
The room was extremely small - in fact the bathroom was bigger. The double bed was more like a single and the mattress was without doubt the worst I have ever come across. Definately one to miss.

Great location

from Marylandtraveler_8
We were able to get a great deal on the Bonnington's internet site.
Unlike many places in Bloomsbury, the Bonnington was built as a full service hotel, and it makes a difference. We asked for a double room away from the street (Southampton Row is a busy street) and were given a quiet one on the second floor. The room was good-sized for London although small compared to the US (with air conditioning and color TV).
The bath was bigger than many in London hotels (it had plenty of counter space, and a tub/shower). The room and bath were spotlessly clean. The staff was polite and helpful, and the full English breakfast was more than adequate. The location is excellent -- midway between the Russell Square and Holborn tube stations, with Sainsbury's grocery store three blocks away (including sandwiches and hot food). The hotel is a few blocks from the British Museum and there is an American Express office at Russell Square. We would definitely stay there again, if we could get a good deal -- the standard rates are high.

Good overall

from ss_6
Great location. Walls are a little thin and matress was terrible.
Internet access terminals broken 'for a couple of days now'.

Room was clean, staff was helpful, price pretty good. Would stay there again but will check matress on arrival.

disappointing stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have stayed here many times and always thought is was a good value for London and the location. My last trip (in March 2004) was something of a disappointment. I usually stay in a single room but this time got a double since I was there with my partner. I thought a double might include a queen bed, but it only a full. The room itself was quite small. Worst of all, one morning we awoke to no hot water and the next night we returned to no electrcity (I had to shave in a public bathroom). After I complained at the front desk, I was given a 25% reduction in one night's rate for the absence of hot water. I got nothing for having to prepare for an evening in London without electricty (perhaps if I had complained more I would have but I was no mood). I checked out of the hotel and got a great weekend rate a nearby 5-star hotel for just 6 pounds more a night. I used to claim the Bonnington was a my first choice for affordable accommodations in London. It is still on my list, but I will check around more before I resort to this hotel in the future.

Top Local Tips for London

British Musuem Excellent place to visit. Especially of interest to us was the exhibition A New World - England's first view of America. Don't miss it if you are around between 15 March and 17 June 2007.

CITY HOTEL LOCATIONS Remember to find out about the location of a hotel - some hotels may be cheap but the areas they're located in may not be suitable for certain travellers eg. lone females, young families - you may not feel comfortable walking around the area after dark!

Food If you want to save a little bit of money in London (the place is so exorbitantly expensive) go to the Tesco Express right next to the hotel to get some fruit and sandwiches. Also remember that if you go to a restaurant and order "take out" or "take away" they charge you about a pound extra for that service. I also strongly suggest going to the Tower of London, even if you arn't the touristy type which I'm not.
