London has an amazing choice of luxury hotel, but with such competition there is a chance that some of the best go unnoticed. One such unsung hero would be the wonderful Hotel Russell – in our opinion London`s best located luxury hotel.
The historic Russell`s exterior is both majestic and grand and this beautifully huge Victorian building houses in total 373 en-suite rooms.
Dating back to 1898, the hotel has managed that most difficult of issues brilliantly – retaining the Victorian charm whilst keeping up to date with modern trends and standards.
The facilities and service are all above excellent, but where the Russell comes into its own is the location.
Set in and facing out to Russell Square and close to the British Museum, although in the very heart of London this is an area that feels very much removed from the usual hustle and bustle.
As well as the British Museum there is much to do, close by. Buckingham Palace, St. Paul`s Cathedral and Harrods and in fact all of the central London attractions are minutes away. Theatre land is only a stroll away too.
Transport links from the Hotel Russell are just as good. The hotel is within walking distance of Euston, St. Pancras and Kings Cross mainline railway stations and Russell Square tube station is only a minute walk from the hotel front door.
As we stated, a real contender for London`s best located luxury hotel.
The hotel`s rooms have managed to retain Victorian quirks, whilst offering everything that is expected in today`s age. Four poster beds or contemporary suites, Hotel Russell has a great choice of rooms.
The Hotel has also developed a bit of a reputation for its excellent breakfast! Generous in choice and quantity, it appears to be a favourite amongst the guests. The newly refurbed Tempus restaurant is certainly worth
exploring for evening meals too.
One thing that really does stand out at this point are the prices. Dining in London can be a pricey affair, but the hotel delivers great options at high value prices. Impressed.
If you are looking for a luxury hotel in London to stay in, and want authenticity, great location, fab food and all round general Lux, the Hotel Russell makes for a sensible choice.
