Russell Hotel

8 Russell Square, Bloomsbury, London WC1B 5BE

I love the look and colour of this building for starters - its grandiosity and unashamedly elaborate design. It represents for me the size as well as the ambition of London, and, being situated in an area to which I have longstanding academic and professional attachment, is of personal significance. Finally I love the way it looks on a sunny afternoon if you’re sitting in Russell Square gardens with a cold beer.
