    Location.

    Frankly, the location of the hotel was superb. Public transportion connection was great also.

    Really small bathroom, no hot water (!!).

    Nothing at all...

    Dirty and breakfast till 9am only even on bank holiday. It's just that we needed a family room and they're not many of them at a reasonable price in London. ( though quite expensive for what it was) Anyway, we'll make sure we will never go back there.

    Location was really good: about 5mins away from Russell Square tube station. There were 13 of us staying in the hotel ( double rooms, family room, triple room, twin room) and none of us had any problems. After reading all the negative comments, I had my doubts but we all were pleasantly surprised. I have stayed in worse places and this hotel gives to what you pay for. No one should expect much from any hotel in London if you pay this little. Our rooms were clean, no mold or anything in bathrooms.

    There were some occasions that some of the rooms had no hot water.

    Good location by Russell Square close to excellent ethnic eateries.

    No lift. Limited breakfast. Did not reply when e-mailed about jacket left in room closet (even to say they didn't have it).

    This hotel is worse than basic and I could not recomend it to anyone other than someone seeking a low standard hostel.

    Location. It is probably the only positive characteristic from this hotel.

    The room was microscopic. The bathroom was 0,5x0,5m in area. The carpet of the room had stains everywhere. Overall, the room was small, uncomfortable, cold (window problem, didn't close entirely) and the breakfast table and kitchen was served badly and was overall pourly clean (after the first breakfast I just bought my own food for the next morning). The relative price to other hotels in the area does not compensate at all a stay there.

    nothing just the locality

    very very basic and not very clean blankets appeared to be from a 1940's army barrack room would rather pay the bit extra next time so the grenville wont be seeing me again very poor for what they charge

    Bit pricey for what it was. I have previously stayed at a number of London hotels - booking only a few days in advance, and paying similar prices. Of all the hotels in question, this was the most basic. Also - the TV was locked and the hot water did not work all day. I had to take a shower on the Saturday evening of my stay and the water was very cold.

    nothing the hotel was like a cesspit i found a dead spider under my pillow the room was disgusting it smelled dirty and musty i spent less than 12 hours there

    7.0

    i liked how the staff were very attentive to our needs, i also liked the location not to far from the underground or shops.

    how hot the room was, but in all fairness it is winter, but still far to hot, and the noise from outside but again this is understandable.

    the whole experience was really bad from when we booked in staff arrogant no one spoke over breakfast which was nothing continental about it cheapest sainsburys yoghurt's and a couple slices of toast. ensuit was noting more then a very small caravan bathroom. no fire drill cards in rooms. Window was chained shut with padlock. bed was never made every morning. booked a double room only one cup for coffee no drinking water glasses. room had no temp control either very hot or very cold. hotel description said overlooked a park well we could not see any park close to hotel. about ten minute walk from tube station so not close as said in description. we found packet of un used condoms in bedside cabinet .
