I checked out the reviews on trip advisor and The George Hotel's website, and everything pointed to The George being a good place to stay. We booked a family room based upon the pictures on the website. (Don't be fooled). Upon entering the hotel, the first thing you see are suit cases chained together to protect against them from being...

We tried to satisfy the guest's requirements but were obviously unsuccessful. As the guest wrote, we gave them a different room but this hasn't seemed to be the answer. Maintenance on the radiator was being worked on by a plumber when they arrived and was cleared up quite shortly afterwards. Guests who arrive before their room is ready can leave...

Pros: cheap (for London), quiet area, free internet and breakfast, beside a small beautiful square, decent pub food around the corner, friendly staff, room cleaned daily Cons: Definitely a budget hotel with poor workmanship throughout - all carpet worn with spots and rolling under your feet, paint and tile work done by amateur, no air-conditioning, bathroom (en-suite) was a modular...

I stayed at the George for a ten-day research trip. I had a very positive experience there. The breakfasts were lovely - wonderful tea, marmalade, eggs, beans, etc., the staff pleasant and helpful, and the location absolutely perfect -- so close to both Russell Square, St. Pancras, the University of London, etc., and right around the corner from a whole...

The service was very efficient, i booked quite late and the booking was dealt with very efficiently over the phone. The only room available was a single with shared bathroom which suited me as it was only for the 1 night. The room was ready just after the check in time stated and was compact but clean, the bathroom was...

After 4 nights in this hotel my boyfriend and I decided it would be our homebase on any future stays in London. We had a triple on the third floor (I believe), with a view out over the park across the street. The room was a great size for two people, and I could imagine it would fit three people...

This hotel is in a lovely, convenient location on a crescent in historic Bloomsbury. The staff was friendly, and the cooked breakfast was well well prepared. My room was a decent size and quiet for London with a pleasant view of Cartwright Gardens. Free wifi was a bonus. I had to share a bathroom which was OK because I never...

George Hotel is value for its prices. It is superly located around the Cartwright Garden, in Bloombury, London. it is is only a 10 minute-walk to King's Cross Station and Russel Square as well. From Kind's Cross Station, you can take train to Edinburgh. From Russel Square, you can take the metro line - Piccadilly Line to the downtown center...
