If London is calling, and you are searching for a luxury hotel that delivers on style, location, and service, check into the Hotel Russell London, one of London’s most iconic Victorian hotels.  The 4-star hotel is located in the heart of London in Russell Square and is just a minute walk to Russell Square tube station. Built in 1898 by the architect Charles Fitzroy Doll, the hotel recently received a £20m modern restoration.  However, it retains all of its distinctive historic charm.

The Tempus Restaurant and Bar is a must-visit during your stay if you are looking for delicious, seasonal, and locally sourced fare. If parts of the hotel look familiar, it is because the architect Charles Fitzroy Doll designed Tempus Restaurant very similar to that of the famous Titanic restaurant.

Russell Square is part of the calm and picturesque Bloomsbury neighborhood, minutes away from several tourist attractions, making it a perfect homebase for exploring the city.  Take a walk through the leafy tree-lined streets, elegant houses, beautiful Georgian terraces, and historic buildings.  The British Museum is just two streets away, and the British Library, and the University of London are within close proximity.  Additionally, Oxford Street and the popular West End are within five minutes walking distance.
