Russell 1

Situated on Russell Square in London, this historic Grade II* listed building, originally designed by the renowned architect Charles Fitzroy Doll, was one of the first purpose-built hotels in London with en-suite bathrooms, and was originally considered to be synonymous with high-end luxury. The building is distinctively clad in decorative Thé-au-Lait ("tea with milk") terra cotta and is a rare example of late-Victorian, renaissance-style architecture in London.
