    Where Old and New Collide

    While the rooms at Hotel Russell feature contemporary design, the communal lounges embrace old world elegance with lavish chandeliers and marble pillars. The on-site Tempus Bar and Restaurant has a delightfully Victorian era vibe, and offers traditional afternoon tea, evening cocktails, and a full dinner menu. The hotel also offers a range of elegant, well-equipped event spaces for both conferences and weddings.

    Steps from Russell Square

    Whether traveling for leisure or business, guests will find Hotel Russell's location in Bloomsbury, in central London, both charming and convenient. The hotel is located opposite Russell Square and is within five minutes walking distance of top London attractions including the University of London, shopping on Oxford Street, and the West End theater district. There's also no need to hail a taxi or rent a car, as the Underground at Russell Square is mere steps away.
