I haven't stayed in the Royal National personally, so can't vouch for its quality, but it is located in Bloomsbury - convenient for Russell Square tube (on Piccadilly line from Heathrow) and the British Museum. It is a large hotel which seems to cater primarily for the tourist market - a lot of tour parties seem to use it, and the hop-on hop-off buses stop just outside.

better hotels

by polly45

Hi, I have not stayed at the National though friends of mine have and say it is a huge hotel that takes lots of school trips so it is very rowdy and they would not stay again.
It is in a good location as we pass it on our way to Southampton row where we stay at the Park Inn Hotel though this is quite a bit more expensive than the National.
If I was you I would have a look at the Tavistock or the Imperial both near the National both budget hotels and better than the National. They are just a block away from the British Museum and Russel Square tube station. Hope this helps

Yes, the Tavistock is not far away, and is probably quieter, although it's probably a bit in need of updating. I haven't stayed there, though I do sometimes have lunch in its 'wine bar'.

We use it to accommodate visiting academics, and they don't complain.

Another hotel in the same area and part of the same chain is the Bedford. A friend who stays regularly at the National, Tavistock and Bedford reckons the last is the best of the three. Do ask for a romm at the back if you're a light sleeper as the main road is noisy.

There are lots of reasonable restaurants in the area and some good pubs. Just down a lane opposite is one of my favourite pubs, the Queen's Larder (review on my London page if you're interested). You'd be an easy walk from Russell Square station (Piccadilly line) and Holborn (Piccadilly and Central lines), and could also easily walk to Covent Garden and Leicester Square for the nightlife.

Travel Tips for London

You have got to visit...

by laxsweetie14

You have got to visit Parliament and observe the changing of the guards. Also if you can try and visit the stables ....the underground ones. I loved meeting the Prince Of Wales And his boys. Let me just tell you one thing they are sooo much cutier in person.

Soho Square

by LanaFromRiga

It is the graceful and charming green lung of Soho. The Soho Square is the place to sit and people – watch. When I was there, people enjoyed the exhibition of photography. So unusual place to exhibit photos.

Temple Bar

by yooperprof

Interesting story of historical survival this is.

From the middle ages onwards "turnpikes" or gateways guarded the roads in and out of the city of London. "Temple Bar" was located close to "The Temple Church," where Fleet Street becomes the Strand, and the parish of Westminster takes over the maintenance of the road. After the devastation of the Great Fire of 1666, Christopher Wren designed the current Temple Bar in the early 1670s; it is made of the finest Portland stone. "During the 18th century, the heads of traitors were mounted on pikes and exhibited on the roof." (Thank you Wikipedia.)

Because of the great growth in traffic and congestion, the city of London decided to get rid of Temple Bar in the 1870s. In 1878, it was dismantled stone by stone, and then sold to a wealthy brewer, Henry Meux, who had the gate reconstructed on the grounds of his country house in Hertfortshire. The Meux Trust sold the gate back to a "Temple Bar Trust" in 1984 for one pound; and in 2004 the Trust was able to ensure its recreation in the city of London. Now the Temple Bar stands just opposite St. Paul's Cathedral, as an entrance to the Paternoster Square redevelopment.

UNDERGROUND - The escalators

by Umea6

Underground is the best way to go around London, but keep in mind that it is always a busy place. Most people are in a hurry, so there is an unwritten policy to stand on the right side of the escalators when going up or down, since the left side is reserved for people running up the escalators to catch their train.

Londoners are a odd race of...

by Aragina

Londoners are a odd race of people, very wary of others, but once you get through the natural stuffyness they can be helpful and polite. Just be polite and courtious and you will win them over. A good idea is always to praise the area you are in and to ask the locals for their knowlege, we love it :-).
