Stylish and sophisticated, NYX Hotel London Holborn by Leonardo Hotels is the perfect spa day or break destination for those looking for city chic style. Cool, calm and sophisticated, from the location to the architecture, it’s somewhere special to escape the urban buzz. Here are five reasons we love it…

The hotel design

This modern hotel is all about sleek design and large windows, letting in lots of natural light in the rooms and suites, but with a contrasting, seductive atmosphere in the spa and restaurant. Pops of colour, atmospheric lighting, surprising artwork and a combination of architectural features make it a truly sensory experience.

The spa location 

On Southampton Row between the City and London's West End, the hotel is in the heart of London and gives you easy access to everything the metropolis has to offer. Stay for a weekend and head to a show, go shopping and enjoy a night on the town! It’s just a five minute walk from Russell Square underground station, and it’s a 15 minute walk from Covent Garden and Soho.

The spa experience

The Rena Spa is a five-star oasis offering relaxation, peace and indulgence. It has a beautiful swimming pool surrounded by a unique hydraulic pool floor so the area can be used for Pilates and yoga classes. There’s a gym, sauna and steam room, and although it’s modern there’s a hint of Neoclassical style which really adds to the decadence.

Caudalie spa treatments 

The treatments are the cherry on top of this spa experience. Treat yourself to a range of beauty and holistic therapies from Caudalie, the skincare brand famed for using active ingredients from the vine and for creating ‘vinotherapy’.

The hotel restaurant 

When in London, there’s a lot of competition for amazing dining experiences, and NYX Hotel London Holborn definitely delivers. Their unique Koto Japanese Restaurant serves fresh sushi and authentic Japanese dishes, Constellations is the international restaurant, and then there’s the Hermes Bar for drinks.
