MStay Russell Court Hotel
Ranked #115 of 571 London B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 April 2016

The hotel is next to Olimpia train station, nice neighborhood, tube station West Kensigton is also 5 minutes walk. Staff is nice and friendly, breakfast is good. The rooms are very small and wifi is not very fast. I would recommend this hotel for 1-2 days stay in London.

Room Tip: If you have heavy bags ask for a room on the first floor, as there is no elevator.

I've just had a couple of nights stay at this hotel whilst exhibiting at Olympia. As with any hotel there are pluses and minuses. The location is great for Olympia, only 5 minute walk and very close to Olympia overground. It's also just off Kensington high street where you can find some great places to eat.
The hotel itself is small but I found everything functional and in some ways better than some of the bigger chains that I frequently stay in.
The main points for me are that the hotel is clean, the bathroom was very well presented with plenty of complimentary toiletries but very small as was the bedroom but there is very little noise as the windows are good. There is tea and coffee making facilities in the room and no shortage of tea or coffee sachets. The room I stayed in however needs a re-paint as its looking shabby.
The breakfast is continental but there is a very good selection of fruit, yoghurts, bread, croissants, cereal, eggs, cold meats, cheese and fruit juices so you won't leave hungry.
I'd definitely use this hotel again.

The rooms are not good enough. Stains on bedding.decoration poor and a place trying to be quality but just is not.I have stayed in cheaper hotels that were better quality. The TV only shows bbc 1 and 2. The rest just de- pixelate so no joy there either.

This hotel was booked for me by work. Usually we stay at the nearby Hilton, however budget cuts meant a more 'affordable' option for us while we attended an Expo nearby. So having looked online at the reviews and felt some trepidation at my upcoming stay, I prepared myself and went to check in.

Reception is tiny. The Receptionist sits inside a small cupboard within reception and deals with your check in quickly and efficiently. Wifi info and other details such as breakfast etc is given on a printed sheet of paper, and your room key is just plain white with the number written on it in felt tip marker pen. I believe the phrase is 'no-frills'?
I was just grateful that the girl in front got given the ground floor room which was the front room of this converted old house, a sidestep away from the reception area. Her door to her room was just inside the main door but before reception, so I don't know how safe I would have felt staying in there? I would probably decline that room if you're travelling alone and security is an issue?

I was given Room 303 and accessed it via a very small yet modern elevator. The door was open when I arrived which unnerved me slightly. The room itself was very small and had an even smaller ensuite bathroom. Initially I found only one power socket near the teeny slither of a desk where the kettle was. Luckily for me I travel with an extension cable, as the kettle cord wasn't long enough to reach the power socket without suspending the kettle upside down, as it was situated half way up the wall (see photo). Regarding the tea and coffee facilities, they were basic like the room. I didn't even get any spoons the first night and had to use a pen to stir my tea
The room itself was far too hot and the heating couldn't be adjusted using the aircon system for some reason so I had to have the teeny window open at all times to cool off.

The bathroom was modern yet tiny and there was no shelf to store anything so it had to go under the sink. The sink was one of those space saver mini ones. It wasn't big enough to get the kettle in to fill it so I had to use the mug to pour water from the tap into the kettle. Also, being such a small sink, there was no way of switching on the tap without soaking yourself from the spray. This meant you and the floor (and all your stuff you had to put on the floor because of no shelf unit) was soaked every time you washed your hands. However the shower itself was nice. Decent water pressure.

The walls are paper thin in this hotel. On the first night the guy in the room to my right had a terrible cold and I heard him blowing his nose a lot. The girl in the room to the left of me had a very long mobile phone conversation that I would have been able to tell you in detail about had I spoken her language. She then took ages trying to plug something in, as it was scratch scratch scratch against my wall. At one point I was going to knock and offer to help her. Thank GOODNESS a couple in love weren't in the next room!!!!!

The wardrobe was super small but there was a long mirror on the wall. The TV was tiny and wall mounted. I found another power socket near the bed. Talking of the bed, each day I was greeted by towel animals (swans in a heart in this case). A vain attempt to give a little romance to this room, although I definitely wouldn't be in the mood for romance if I was with someone in this hotel!

Breakfast was basic in a small basement room, a little like a canteen. I would suggest you go to Costa which is attached to The Hilton around the corner.

This is a basic yet clean hotel. Good for business or leisure travellers who don't usually stay anywhere higher than a 2 star hotel and don't care what it's like as long as there's a bed. It does the job, if the job is having somewhere to sleep before you move on.

Clean, small, functional. If you don't expect much, you'll be fine.

Room was small but had everything we needed, double bed, tv, en-suite, and free wi-fi. The fridge and safe were unexpected bonuses, as were the slippers, although we didn't use them they were a nice additional touch. The En-suite was lovely, bright and spotless with beautifully clean white towels, mini toiletries, heated towel rail and hair-dryer. The bed was a little on the firm side but it did have crisp white linen and duvet cover.

The dining room was much nicer in reality than on the photo, and the breakfast (continental) was fine...we just had toast with butter/jam. Again this area of the hotel was very clean.

Reception was 24 hour and there as a small lift for those unable to manage the stairs.

We stayed here for 2 nights to attend an event at the Olympia and so the hotel was close to the rail station and the venue!.
