Clean, friendly, welcoming, basic budget b&b, amazing location(!)
  8 / 10
One of our staff came across this place by chance on a recent research trip to London. Her first impression whilst waiting under its aged porch sheltering from a heavy downpour having just exited Russell Square Tube Station literally round the corner - was of a very friendly receptionist who opened the door to her whilst telling her it was warmer to wait inside. As our staffer settled down in one of the cozy lounges she realised that the prospect of staying in another internationally anonymous 3-star hotel carried no allure as opposed to the curiosity engendered by this charcterfull independant. The result? - She spent a week enjoying the huge, delicious freshly cooked breakfasts sharing the charming dining room by an eclectic and intriguing mix of academics, civil servants, business travellers, and savvy independant voyagers. Her description of the rooms - "Clean, basic, simple..." ; the location - "Amazing, 100m from tube, 3 min walk from British Museum, 18 min walk from Covent Garden!"; the staff - "friendly, helpfull, good local knowledge".

In conclusion - this is a friendly, safe, hospitable, clean, cosy, very economical b&b with a greatt breakfast included in the price in a fantstic location.

Drawbacks: simpler and more basic than the pricier mid-range hotels normally used in package trips. Pre-booking definately required - turns out that this place has been popular with independant travellers for years - so getting in on a last minute package won't be an option.
