You may have already heard of the famous Hoxton Hotel, the trendy East London site near Old Street station best known in recent years for catering to the creative masses of Shoreditch. What you may not know is that in July this year, they opened a brand new hotel in the more central location of Holborn, the aptly named The Hoxton, Holborn.
The Hoxton, Holborn has lived up to its older sister’s reputation and is an amazing showcase of uber-cool design and effortless London style. You can choose a bedroom from four fun categories, ranging from ‘Shoe Box’, the smallest option, to ‘Roomy’, the biggest. The rooms are decked out with urban wooden floors, quirky wallpaper, leather-bound chairs, and an abundance of arty finishing touches.
When you spend the night at The Hoxton, Holborn, the ultra-comfy mattress and puffy duck-down duvets are just the beginning. Each morning you’re greeted with a healthy breakfast bag filled with granola pot, bananas, and OJ. To get your caffeine fix, follow the smell of freshly roasted coffee to the brilliant in-house café, Holborn Grind, where you can pick up a delicious flat white or a creamy cappuccino to start your day. The café pulls in not just hotel guests but the locals too, so if you’re a bit of a coffee snob, you’re in good hands.
Everyone loves a good sleep, but the real magic of this hotel is found in the communal spaces. Make your way over to the Brooklyn-style grill, Hubbard & Bell, and treat yourself to a signature steak with mouth-watering truffle chips and an indulgent banana split to finish.
Returning to the hotel after a night out on the town, you wander into the basement and succumb to the succulent smells coming from the hotel’s very own Chicken Shop. Ready to fulfil all your rotisserie chicken needs, it’s fast food at its finest!
If you forget to pack your nail polish or simply love a good pamper session, you’ll find some solace at Cheeky, the in-house beauty salon, stacked with a whole collection of make-up, manicure stations, and beauty products.
Get inspired in the hotel’s gallery space where you’ll find a selection of up and coming, local artists exhibited on the walls. Artwork is refreshed every three months so there’s always something new to see! The Hoxton also runs Hoxtown, a series of eight events a month curated with local businesses, covering everything from poker games and festive film nights to Christmas wreath making classes.
Whether you’re staying for one night or one week, you’ll be sure to walk out of The Hoxton, Holborn feeling refreshed, happy, relaxed, and inspired. As the perfect home base to enjoy central London, you’ll be sure to keep coming back for years to come.
