Read our review of NYX Hotel London Holborn

What’s a city hotel stay without a set of chic and shiny new Instagram snaps or TikTok footage to brag about your staycation with on socials? Neon lights, London-sourced art and stunning city views, Rebecca Cox checks into NYX Hotel London Holborn for some fresh footage. 

NYX Hotel London Holborn Review


If bold, bright designs, neon wall art and lots of colour are your bag, there’s plenty to look at in the NYX Hotel. But for me, the real appeal is found in the enormous floor-to-ceiling windows, flooding the hotel’s rooms and suites with natural light and offering views out across the city. Having said that, the quirky art and playful design is the perfect modern antidote to some of the city’s more traditionally designed hotels, so if you’re tired of priceless chandeliers and frescoed ceilings, immerse yourself in the NYX’s dark and moody hallways and take a seat on the spray-painted King Charles throne (set up with an instant camera for a printed snap…that you can photograph for your stories) in the lobby. In the rooms, bathrooms are a little on the small side, but space has been saved for enormous comfy beds, and the rooms are blissfully quiet (a rarity for such a central spot). The fun and design pizazz continues on the rooftop bar, Glasshouse On The Roof At NYX, offering stunning panoramic views of central London and creative cocktails.

Choose from the Glasshouse On The Roof At NYX or the hotel’s main restaurant, Midtown for comfort food and drinks in a relaxed and vibrant atmosphere (amongst Seletti scatter cushions, more perfect Instagram fodder). Midtown’s burgers are superlative, the truffle fries divine, alas, the puddings underwhelming. Instead, opt for an after-dinner visit to the retro games station in the lobby or after-dinner drinks on the rooftop.

Unwind in the Rena Spa, where you’ll find a dark and moody atmospheric pool with a sauna and steam room, plus a gym and treatment rooms for Isgha specialist treatments. Of course, if the buzzy design has you in the mood for more winding, rather than unwinding, the hotel is on the doorstep of Oxford Street and Covent Garden, where you can immerse yourself in the hustle of the city within minutes. 


A thoughtful and memorable design delight with heart. This modern central hotspot has the capacity to be too cool for school, but is saved from being a one hit wonder thanks to the warmth of its brilliant staff and welcoming atmosphere.

How Does It Work?

August facilitates effortless holiday home ownership; with fractional ownership, multiple people can own and enjoy up to five residences across Europe. August finds, buys, designs and renovates all five homes to an exceptional standard across five sought-after European destinations, taking care of all admin and maintenance – and you get to call all of them home for less than the price of one.

It’s the next level in effortless travelling and home-ownership, and members of August’s exclusive community holiday an average of 12 weeks per year. There are five collections to choose from, spanning Europe’s most iconic destinations, including the French Riviera, Tuscany, Mallorca, the Alps and the Cotswolds – all highly-sought regions you’ll want to visit year-round, with easy flight connections. Each home is welcoming, family friendly and features stylish yet timeless interiors curated by experts, charmingly matched to the destination.

Why It Makes Sense

Full Ownership

Not only will you get to holiday in these five gorgeous houses, but every family or individual has collective ownership. This is an equity purchase, with real ownership, transparency and control.

More For Your Money

With shares starting from €365,000, you can part-own over €7,500,000 of prime real estate for a fraction of the cost. Plus, with five destinations at your disposal, you’re not restricted to just one property to call your second home.


August takes all of the hassle out of holiday home ownership, managing the purchase, maintenance and management of every home, including everything from housekeeping to gardening, cleaning the pool filter to paying the bills. If you’ve been put off holiday home ownership due to language barriers, unfamiliar legal and administrative processes, a lack of market expertise or simply not being in the area for viewings, August is the perfect antidote, allowing you to simply show up after all the hard work has been done, lie back and enjoy your dream property.


With a wealth of experienced interior designers underpinning the collection, your five properties are carefully renovated and designed to expertly blend home comforts with modern technology. Welcome home.
