As I am based in Kent I only go down to London once or twice a week and when I do I cram everything in. From press days, to meetings with brands and PRs to catch ups with friends. When you have a full day there can be some dead time when you have hours to kill or just need to flop with a cup of tea for a bit. The Hoxton, Holborn is the perfect space for this.
You can set up camp with your laptop for a whole day while people drop in to meet you or you can just grab something delicious to eat and head out.
The Hoxton is owned by Ennismore who also own sister hotels in London, Shoreditch, Amsterdam and Paris. The Hoxton, Shoreditch was launched in 2006 and The Hoxton, Holborn was opened in 2014.
The concept of the hotels is to offer more than just a bed for the night. The brand wants to provide a place where guests can hang out alongside the locals and get to know the neighbourhood.
This is articulated in the various events that the hotel puts on as well as the decor of the venue. It is very welcoming and spacious and you really do feel like you have entered a very large lounge. With different types of seating available plus wifi and charging points everywhere, The Hoxton, Holborn really encourages you to say put.
There is plenty of food and drink that will take you from the early hours of the morning to the evening. Holborn Grind offer coffees and cocktails as well as snacks, pastries, cakes, salads and sandwiches.
If you fancy something more substantial then Hubbard & Bell is perfect for a breakfast or lunch meeting. You can choose from meats, truffle chips and banana splits. There is even have a Chicken Shop where you can treat yourself to rotisserie chicken with a fantastic selection of sides.
If you fancy a pamper then you can pop over and get your nails did at Cheeky Holborn. See, I told you – this place really is a home away from home.
