I liked the idea of the reception being away from in-and-out path which gives the sense of complete privacy.

It is a small boutique hotel with a small room but everything works well and the location is excellent.

A quiet oasis in the heart of Bloomsbury”
The Russell Hotel over the road is being renovated, which means bed spaces around Russell Square are at a premium. So the Morton Hotel is a real find and I'll definitely be back. We asked for a quiet twin room and room 46 at the back was perfect. There's quite a lot of space for a London room, with a dressing table, wardrobe area, chair and a lovely bathroom with walk-in shower. There's a small fridge if you want to stock up on milk or wine - a Tesco's Express is just around the corner. Also the windows open if you want some fresh air which is an added bonus. Huge fluffy towels too. We found we were in a bit of a Goldilocks quandary with the pillows being too soft or too hard but that's a minor detail. It is scrupulously clean - well, apart from a sticky sweet-like residue on the floor which we only noticed as we were in socks. Housekeeping were genuinely concerned and came to mop it up really quickly. The TV had Sky which was a bonus but unfortunately the sound quality was quite bass-like. We loved the quirky decor themed on the different writers of the Bloomsbury group. Unlike larger hotels we didn't really ever have to wait for the lift. The reception/bar is obviously set up for evening drinks rather than breakfast. We ate there once and found the seats too low to be comfortable. Also the tables just weren't large enough to cope with the paraphenalia of even a continental breakfast. My breakfast companion mistakenly used my soya milk as the main milk was on the bar and was not impressed. Her coffee was also way too strong with not enough milk. The next morning we went to the Pret A Manger literally around the corner for half the price. There's also a cafe in Russell Square itself overlooking the fountains and the trees. But not having a decent in-house breakfast is a small price to pay for such a quiet spot. Transport-wise we used buses and taxis. A cab from King's Cross was £7 at 12.30pm, to the Strand £7 at 4.30pm. If you just want somewhere easy to eat afte
A little bit of Bloomsbury-style in the heart of London”
As a lone traveler on a budget I was very pleasantly surprised to discover The Morton, in the heart of London but proximate to lovely garden Squares (Russell Square in particular), the Tube and the Bloomsbury historic buildings. Gentility amidst the rush. Large comfortable bed and superb bathroom. Quiet and discreet, a true find.
We had a perfect 2 night stay, the staff are amazingly helpful and friendly, the continental breakfast is really good (which I would normally not say for a continental breakfast), the interior design of the hotel is really cool and unique (not just another boring, bland hotel), it's surprisingly quiet at night (considering it's in central London) and the location is really perfect, just 1 minutes walk from the tube, 10 minutes from Oxford Street and right on the corner of Russell Square. Make sure you take the elevator up to your room to hear the friendliest, softest and most polite "doors opening", "5th floor", "doors closing" automatic voice you'll ever hear :) Will definitely stay at the Morton next time we're in London.
This will be our go to hotel in London for future visits! I've already recommended it to two people. It's right on the Picadelly line so it's a straight shot from Heathrow which is very convient. There are 2 ATM's within 30 feet, a chain cafe and a Tesco Express within a block. The hotel offers a smart phone free of charge to make local calls, calls to the US and can be used for maps, info, etc. which makes getting around much easier. We had a wonderful time and the Morton Hotel is a gem!
We had a great time at this hotel. We had stayed in the Bloomsbury area before so we were familiar with the other establishments and the closeness of the Tube across the street. There is a shopping center down the street where you can go for breakfast if you want more than the continental breakfast at the hotel. I liked that fact that you had to use your room key to use the elevator and to open the front door after dark. Made us feel very secure. I don't know how long the hotel has been open but the breakfast suffered from a lack of easy to understand format. I did love the hot milk with tea and coffee. The desk staff seemed to have a gap in their knowledge of basic procedures in London, like buying an oyster card, but they were spot on when they ordered transportation for us to the airport. I would stay here again although it was a bit pricey.
Stayed at the Morton hotel for two nights with my mother and daughter. Booked this hotel because of the reviews and was not disappointed. The hotel had an overall classy feel and the staff were excellent. Would definitely book it again on my return.
Good location & breakfast”
My mother and I stayed here on our holiday to London. The Morton is right around the corner from Russell Square Tube station and walking distance from the British Museum, British Library, and the Dominion theatre (we saw An American in Paris). Rooms are clean and comfortable and very quiet. We had our window open two nights and still did not hear street noise. The bathroom was new; we especially liked the large bathtub. The breakfast at the hotel was also very good and staff were friendly and helpful. The mattresses were a little firm, but otherwise highly recommend the hotel.
Fabulous hotel in fabulous location”
The staff were so polite and genuinely helpful and friendly . I loved the restful but interesting decor of the hotel. Our room was beautiful. My friend and I spent a very restful and pleasant evening in the hotel bar where the prices were reasonable and the wine delicious. The fact that I have some difficulty walking was not a problem here because the lift was efficient and the the bar very accessible. I love .bloomsbury and with the buses outside and the tube around the corner thus hotel is really well located.
Definitely a five star hotel!”
We couldn't ask for a better stay. My electrical adapter wouldn't fit the wall plug-the gentleman at the desk went out of his way to find a wall adapter that would work with my iPhone plug. The room was on the 5th floor (55) and absolutely no outside noise at all. The walk-in shower was large enough to accommodate at least 10 people. In addition to the regular shower head there was also a rain head! Loved it! The hotel is in close proximity to the Underground - a big plus for getting around. The Morton will be my "Go To" hotel when in Lobdon
Great hotel ”
The morton hotel was fantastic. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable. The location excellent for sightseeing but still away from the busy roads. It was a quiet hotel where one could relax and unwind. I will without a doubt stay here again.

We just returned from our second stay and the Morton Hotel will remain our “ go to “ hotel in London and I will continue to highly recommend to everyone!
Gorgeous hotel, perfect location ”
Stayed in London many times, the morton was lovely, incredibly spacious rooms-for london standards. Great location so close to Russell Square tube to get everywhere you want. Would highly recommend.
The Morton Hotel is truly a gem. The facilities are comfy and the staff are absolutely incredible. It was our home away from home in London.
We loved our stay at the Morton hotel and can't wait to plan another stay. Our room was lovely and the staff very polite. We really enjoyed our breakfast and will definitely return
Always a pleasure!”
Always find the Morton to be a convenient and safe relaxing haven in London. A stones throw from Russell Square tube, and easy access to great bars and restaurants.
Wonderful stay at The Morton”
My wife and I loved The Morton. The staff were incredible and its proximity to the Underground made getting around London cheap and easy.
The location was great for easy access to my meetings yet did not feel hemmed in as the local streets are quiet. The staff were superb, and the decor was quirckily classic. All in all it was a great night's sleep and a lovely stay. Next time in London I will stay at the Morton.
The Morton is a great little hotel. Modern and clean. Close to the underground, Euston, Kings Cross and British Museum. Very helpful staff, will definetely stay again.
Oasis in bustling London ”
This hotel sets itself apart once you get to the front door. Much prettier and revived compared to the many other hotels on this street. Entire property is cozy, charming, clean. We stayed in a top floor room that has an enormous rainforest shower room that was a luxury to use. Room was small but comfortable and had everything we needed. We took advantage of the laundry service. Clothes can back smelling fresh and nicely folded. Good to have as we did not have much time and wanted to explore London,not do wash.
