How to Get There
This hotel had great ratings however I was displeased. I think it's because I was sequestered into the "basement". People talked about nice big rooms and mine was teeny tiny.
I guess for the price of $175 Canadian I expected something better but London is quite expensive. The location was very good, being right by Russell Square and very close to tube and bus stop. The hotel had an elevator and the wifi was great, however the room was just dingy. It was clean but with the wall paper coming off on every wall it just seemed gross and dingy.
Looking for something central and with bit more space than the usual London hotel bedrooms, be it a budget or an expensive hotel, we decided on the Grange Portland. The larger rooms here are not cheap but more than worth it for the huge amount of space, the enormous bed and curious self catering facilities - curious because breakfast is included in the tarriff, and who wants to cook on holiday. At booking, I indicated a preference for a room at the back and on an upper floor. On arrival, there was no mention of this request and we got a second floor room facing the road. Yes, it is noisy, but at night there is minimal traffic and wax ear plugs work wonders. All previous reviews commenting the need for maintenance are correct although much of what we saw was minor - a spot of paint, a bit of glue to stick the wallpaper back on, mould treatment in the bathroom - and the level of cleaning seemed high during our three day stay.
Breakfast was excellent, varied and abundant. We paid extra for the cooked breakfast, which was huge (just avoid the vegetarian sausages). I would settle for the cold breakfast - even on a busy Sunday morning it was well stocked. If we could be sure of not being given a basement room, we would definitely consider coming back to the Portland.
Quaint hotel with Very friendly staff. Room was large and clean. The bathroom products are of very good quality. Located in a safe and central area of London, it’s so easy to walk to so many areas of the city. You are within 15 minutes of most major attractions. Right around the corner from the British museum. We would definitely stay here again when we return to London. How often can you find a hotel with a king size bed?
