Conde Nast Traveller recommended decadence at a brand-new boutique hotel in London’s Holborn - includes welcome cocktail, full English breakfast and an optional suite


Attention to detail is everything at this former Grade II-listed Baptist church turned decadent and seriously seductive new hotel in London’s Holborn - the grand literary hub celebrated for its mix of bars, restaurants, academic institutions, and stunning architecture. Complete with super-sexy interiors by Jacques Garcia (the French décorateur extraordinaire behind Hôtel Costes in Paris, La Mamounia in Marrakech, and NoMad in NYC), it delights with a superb fine dining restaurant, a sophisticated cafe-bar, and a vibe that’s glamorous and unapologetically quirky.

Each of the 39 imaginative and playful guest rooms and suites is unique in design, with all assuring a luxurious turn-of-the-century feel, lashings of silks, velvets and damasks in red and gold tones, upcycled furniture, and private fireplaces. The Standard Queen and Junior suite both have beds with hand-picked down feathers from Iceland Duvet, plenty of high-tech gadgetry (flat-screen TVs with digital channels, media mini hubs, Wi-Fi), yoga mats, complimentary (and well-stocked) minibars, and beautiful bathrooms with his-and-hers Roja Dove bath products.

Located in the original dome-shaped 1903 chapel, the Baptist Grill has a hand-painted ceiling, eight stucco low-relief sculptures, and lashings of truly sumptuous decor. Expect a red-carpet welcome from stylishly-attired staff as well as an exquisite menu courtesy of Executive Chef Tony Fleming (he cooked under Marco Pierre White at The Oak Room and Richard Neat at Pied a Terre, before winning a Michelin star at Angler).

Also worthy of your attention is Cafe L'oscar, a decadent spot for impossibly good breakfasts, bistro-style lunches, intimate dining, late-night desserts, or simply a glass of fine wine. The hotel also offers a 24-hour butler service.


Just a minute’s walk from the tube station, you’ll be staying in Holborn, the West End’s historic district best known for its academic and medical institutions, bookshops, cool cafes, and extraordinary architecture. Must-dos include strolling around the leafy Russell and Bedford squares, spending time at the amazing British Museum, and learning more about one of the country’s most famous authors at the Charles Dickens Museum (this is where he wrote Oliver Twist, The Pickwick Papers, and Nicholas Nickleby).

Other nearby highlights include Sir John Soane's Museum and the Hunterian Museum on Lincoln's Inn Fields, the Museum of Freemasonry on Great Queen Street, and the Cartoon Museum on Wells Street.
