As addresses go, 1-8 Russell Square, London is pretty desirable. Overlooking the famous Russell Square, The Principal London really does offer you one of the best base locations in the city. We are the lucky custodians of one of London's most iconic Victorian Hotels and have been very careful to retain its beautiful and quirky features.

By staying in this part of London, many places of interest including the buzzing West End are only a stones throw away, with Covent Garden, the British Museum, and theatreland within easy walking distance. As for transport links, you will not have to look any further as the Hotel Russell is within walking distance of Euston, St. Pancras and Kings Cross mainline railway stations and Russell Square tube station is only 1 minutes walk from our own front door.

All 373 of the en-suite bedrooms at The Principal London have their own unique features and guests can choose from a variety of styles.
