“You meet me tonight at the Grand Hotel.”

James Bond (Pierce Brosnan)

Lors de son entretien avec Valentin Zukovsky (Robbie Coltrane), James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) lui explique qu’il loge au Grand Hotel Europe et qu’il attend des informations sur Janus.

While he is quietly swimming, Agent 007 is visited by Xenia (Famke Janssen) who soon tries to kill him. She proceeds in the same manner as Admiral Chuck Farrel (Billy J. Mitchell) using the strength of his thighs.

But the British spy manages to turn the tables and threatens the young woman with his Walter PPK to lead him to his boss.

In the feature film, the hotel is called the Grand Hotel Europe and is supposed to be located in Russia. Based in London, the Langham Hotel, in which the scenes were shot, is known as the first “Grand Hotel” in Europe.

The Prince of Wales, Louis Napoleon III, Charles Dickens and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stayed there.

During the Second World War, the premises were used as a military and rescue post to help the war effort. A large part of the west wing was destroyed during the bombing.
