The Imperial Hotel Jul 03, 2009
Perfectly situated downtown, within walking distance of everything you need, including Russell Square tube station, this hotel would be a perfect place for London sightseers to stay at. Check-in was at 2:00, but I was still on my journey at that time, so ended up checking in at around 4:00, which was no problem. The ladies at the front desk were very nice, even when they couldn’t find my name in the reservations. It was worked out quickly, though, and I was assigned my room. The room was small, but it was clean. The bed wasn’t all that comfortable, but I wasn’t able to sleep all that much, anyways. The room had a small TV, and a very small bathroom. The hotel had a pub/bar, which was open late for guests. I never went in, but it looked alright when I walked by it. As far as hotel rooms go, there was nothing special about this one, but as a place to sleep, it did the trick!

The Imperial Hotel is nestled in the midst of Russell Square in London, England. If location is of importance to you, than this is the hotel for you! The Imperial Hotel is located within a few blocks of the British Museum and is surrounded by Underground stations. There is also a pharmacy nearby, several great pubs, ATMs, restaurants and shops. Covent Garden is also located within walking distance.
The rooms at the hotel are quiet cozy. Although they are quite different from American hotel rooms, you'll find yourself at home in these rooms. Each room offers a television, private bathroom and a handy pants presser. Just downstairs in the lobby is a great restaraunt.
If you stay here might I reccommend eating at a nearby pub called Shakespeare's Head. The food there is to die for. The awesome desk staff should be able to point you in the right direction. When leaving the hotel, turn left on the main road and follow it a few blocks. The pub is on the left hand side of the road.

My First Impression of London, England May 18, 2005
This hotel was my first hotel to stay at in Europe. Upon arrival into London, England. I found my way here easily from the London Underground.
It is easily located near Russell Square and close to the London Tube,very good.
The check in process was good and done by a friendly lady at front desk. She was very helpful and her level of customer service was very high.
The room I had was a small room, but for one person it was fine. I had a view of some offices outside my window. Nothing too exciting but worked for me.
Room was slightly clean and running water was good coming out of the taps.
Had an old style sink in the room but overall served it's purpose so no complaints there.
The bed was a little too soft but it was still quite comfortable. Just comfortable enough that you could still sleep naked in the blankets. Sorry for the bad image. Just a joke.
Carpet was clean and it seem liked a very secure place to leave my stuff.
I overall would stay here again in the future, I would recommend this hotel for others. There is a nice pub downstairs which serves a good fish and chips, check it out.
Thanks for hearing my review everyone.
