Hotels have not been in the news much over the last year or so thanks to the pandemic but there has been quite a lot happening behind the scenes in anticipation of the hospitality industry opening up again. None more so than here in London, as we hear of a number of new hotel openings this year.
Holborn is home to a brand-new hotel that will be opening its doors to guests for the first time on 17th May 2021. NYX Hotel London Holborn, named after the Greek goddess of the night, is the latest hotel in the NYX hotel portfolio and the company’s first hotel in the UK. The hotel group already has existing hotels in places such as Bilbao, Madrid, Mannheim, Munich, Milan, Prague, Tel Aviv and Warsaw, with new hotels planned in other capital cities around the world, such as Jerusalem and Rotterdam.
NYX is designed for the open-minded, curious and the culturally savvy guest. The rooms have a relaxed luxury theme about them, while the Rena Spa offers you the chance to relax and rejuvenate and the buzzing bar and restaurant, a place to visit for some creative cocktails and food before hitting the Town.
The hotel’s décor is best described as offering sultry lighting and thought-provoking modern artwork. Every space, room, nook and cranny has been created with networking, socialising and unwinding in mind along with offering guests a high degree of comfort and style.
NYX Hotel London Holborn have even put together a black book of London’s hidden gems, from stores to secret gardens, offering access to some of the capital’s best cultural events throughout the year.
All 213 ultra-modern bedrooms and suites are fitted with exclusively designed ‘Dream’ beds and bespoke feather and down duvets to ensure a restful night’s sleep. They are also equipped with fully-stocked Smeg fridges, Nespresso coffee machines, cosy bathrobes and slippers.
For those of you looking to unwind and enjoy a little pampering, then the Rena Spa is well worth a visit for its expansive indoor Greco-Roman swimming pool with loungers, a fully equipped gym and elegant, spacious treatment suites offering a wide range of treatments and therapies.
It is often the bar that is the real heart of many hotels and that is most certainly the case here at the NYX Hotel London Holborn where the eclectic interior of the NYX Bar & Restaurant will have DJs performing until 3am most nights along with a carefully curated range of engaging events ensuring that no two nights are ever the same. The restaurant’s menu offers guests all-day brunch dishes like panettone French toast, chorizo shakshuka, adobo chicken and chopped salads, as well as things like nacho platters.
