Good Hotel Guide Review
Consciously cool, this youthful hotel occupies a one-time office block, all traces of day-to-day drudgery erased. The capacious lobby doubles as casual meeting space, with communal tables, conveniently placed sockets and complimentary newspapers. Good-value bedrooms (Shoebox, Snug, Cosy, Roomy) are well designed with clever features (underbed storage, a flip-lid desk); each has thoughtful extras – blackout curtains, Penguin Classics, maps of nearby hotspots. There’s a choice of eating options: Brooklyn-style Hubbard & Bell serves food all day plus weekend brunches; Holborn Grind has coffees, cocktails, salads and sandwiches; there are spit-roasted birds in the basement Chicken Shop. Hang a breakfast bag on your door handle before turning in; wake to find it filled with a granola pot, a banana and a bottle of orange juice. (Underground: Holborn)
