London: Russell Hotel
This post flies you to London.
The long days and the darkness of the nights would have made one weary. What would be better than a good night rest. Strange and unfamiliar it may be, it is at least one's bed in foreign lands.
Russell Hotel, London, is quite a nice place to be in. It has a nice Victorian-style Facade. The staff are nice and relatively attentive.
I chose to stay there because it was nearby the British Museum. I had hoped to visit the museum as often as I could, but in the end, I had only been inside the British Museum on two occasions when I was in London. This seems to reflect how little time I had in London when I was there this August. Of course, I have to thank the kindness and generosity of my father for sponsoring the accomodation. Otherwise, I might have chose to stay in some budget hotel or hostel.
Since I had spent more time in total in the hotel (sleeping, reading the guide book, eating breakfast etc) than in the British Museum, I should at least show you how Russell Hotel looks like.
There're lifts, but I chose to walk down the stairs.
I am now thinking to myself: If I have the means, I will like to stay there when I visit London again.
