I was here several times in 1986 when I worked at Harrow Research for Kodak.

The accomodations were fine but a bit sparse compared to spoiled American standards.
My room had a bed, a table and chair, a clothes closet/bureau, a clothes dresser, a lampstand and lamp and very little room to move around. The lavoratory was three rooms down the hall and was shared by 7 roomers. The furniture was very old but very serviceable (nothing damaged or dented, just old style). There was a public phone, in the hall inside a little booth, that we could use by just telling the operator a special hotel code number that related to our room.

The internal and external architecture was semi-modern Londonese. Everything was carpeted or solid wood; the walls were flox wall paper of conservative design. The rooms and halls were clean; the elevators were new but slow (stately might be a good word); the staff were great and patient with my lack of local knowledge.

On the first floor, there was a laundry to turn in your dirty goods to be cleaned and a full bar and a huge waiting room. A full dining room was also open at certain times of the day but I found it cheaper to eat out in the pubs. There also was a chequer station (sort of like a human version of American ATMs) where you could get the latest currency exchange and where Kodak wired me funds.

Unique Quality: the whole atmosphere was great

Directions: near Guilford Street, just opposite Russel Square (on the east side)

This is a big two star-hotel, that's (as far as you can get in London) in the budget category.

I'm including it here as this hotel has it's own place in music legend - it was home for "The Beatles" during the summer of 1963.

I'd passed by it countless times - but only recently found out about the fab 4 staying here some 40 years ago.

I think room 114 was one of the rooms used - but perhaps you could update this tip with more information if anyone visits and does a bit more research?

Unique Quality: You can also have a wander around Russell square and find the hexagonally shaped flowerbeds that the Beatles had a photo shoot with.

Stayed here recently for 10 nights with my sister. The room was a fair size with two
single beds. There was a kettle, cups and coffee and tea. Also in the room a
trouser presser. We paid 5 pounds to have a hair dryer in the room, which
was returned to us when we left. The staff were great, the hotel very clean,
even when filled with guests. Two minutes away is the underground, and
buses nearby. What more could one want from a hotel. Would definitely
stay here again.
