Israeli-owned Leonardo Hotels UK & Ireland has announced the opening of its first NYX Hotel in the UK on 17 May.
NYX Hotel London Holborn is the 11th hotel in the group’s global city centre portfolio that includes properties in Tel Aviv, Madrid, Milan, Munich, Bilbao and Prague.
With this new hotel the company now has 16 properties around the UK.
Located on the corner of Southampton Street and Theobalds Road, the Holborn property stands 10 storeys tall with a dramatic piece of street art, part mural, part graffiti, by Dan Kitchener running down the entire length of the building evoking its location. As well as 213 luxurious bedrooms and suites, there is the all-day late night NYX bar and restaurant, and, opening in 2022, a rooftop events space.
Bedrooms and suites, located down moodily lit corridors, feature eye-catching artwork and modern furniture, from the large, padded leather headboards to the teak sideboards. Additional touches include fully stocked mini Smeg fridges, Nespresso coffee machines, and bespoke ‘Dream’ beds and feather and down duvets.
The 126-cover NYX bar and restaurant, open from breakfast until 03:00 on most nights has been designed with myriad spaces suitable for different size groups and varied occasions. In the basement is the Rena Spa, featuring a 13-metre Greco-Roman indoor swimming pool with retractable flooring to create a private events space, alongside a steam room and sauna, state of the art fitness centre and luxurious treatment suites.
