I am a lucky girl, because my best friend lives in London. Which means whenever I feel like going to the City of Shakespeare I can, without needing a hotel to stay. This time was a little different, because she recently had a baby and they are still finding their routine.
Well, staying at the Hoxton Holborn wasn’t a bad alternative! From Heathrow Airport you can take the tube (Piccadilly line) directly to Holborn station. In 45 minutes you are in the centre of London.
I liked the hotel from the moment we set foot in it. The interior design is contemporary, the lobby and lounge area have a living room feeling with comfortable armchairs and couches.
We stayed in a roomy-room with a king-size bed, very cool wallpaper and a sofa area. The perks of staying at a Hoxton: free fresh milk, water, a coffee machine and a kettle in your room. In the morning you can find a breakfast bag with granola, yoghurt, a banana and fresh orange juice hanging on your doorknob. Perfect for little eaters, however we had a proper English breakfast on top of it.
At the first night we enjoyed dinner at the “Hubbard & Bell” the hotel’s restaurant, sampling all kinds of dishes for the healthy and the less healthy minded. I had a beetroot, avocado and spiced seeds salad followed by a vegetable burger with cauliflower, lentil, chipotle mayo, potato bun – both was very good!
If you are looking for an easygoing hotel in London in an unbeatable location you should book your room at the Hoxton now!
