  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

The staff are very helpful and welcoming. What i didnot like is the insuite property and of course the wash room. The hot and cold taps are separate. Water was either too hot or too cold.

Stayed 1 night in Dec. 2018

4/5 Good

Stay at Royal National

I stay at the Royal National because it is inexpensive, convenient to a Tube Stop (Russell Square) and convenient to British Museum, British Library, several rail stations, and several other attractions. It is easy to walk to many local facilities. The facilities are clean and and reasonably well-appointed. Management was quick to respond to a leaky toilet. Free wifi works fairly well. The only downside one might consider is that i get many school tourist groups who sometime make excessive noise. Some of the carpets are fraying and some of the doors show substantial wear and tear.

Cons: Dining room facilities could provide a little more room for some tables.

Hotel is good for one night stay....affordable, close nice restaurants in the area....very easy access from Heathrow on the Underground...However, facilities are not the best, lack of maintenance is noticed everywhere.
