Leonardo Hotels UK & Ireland has announced it is to open 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.
The hotel, named after the Greek Goddess of the Night, is located on the corner of Southampton Street and Theobalds Road. The Holborn property stands 10 storeys tall and features a piece of street art, part mural, part graffiti, by Dan Kitchener running down the entire length of the building.
It also features 213 luxurious bedrooms and suites, the Rena Spa and, opening in 2022, a rooftop events space.
The property also houses the 126-cover NYX bar and restaurant, open from breakfast until 3am on most nights, which has been designed with myriad spaces suitable for different size groups and varied occasions.
Jurys Inn said the menu reflects the “melting pot of cuisines” found in London with dishes that range from panettone French toast, to tequila and chipotle prawn tostadas; the signature NYX raclette burger and larger sharers.
Jason Carruthers, MD of Jurys Inn and Leonardo Hotels UK and Ireland, said: “London is one of the most culturally diverse and exciting cities in the world and the NYX brand is committed to reflecting that and engaging with the people and places that make it so special. Our debut UK property is going to be an exciting place to visit – a new scene for guest and Londoners alike.”
