Located between the City, Islington and Shoreditch, within the ‘250 City Road’ development designed by Sir Norman Foster’s acclaimed architectural firm Foster + Partners, the four-star hotel will be NH Hotel Group’s second property in the UK.
The eight-storey hotel will feature 190 rooms, a restaurant, bar, gym, networking spaces and several meeting rooms. A ‘Big Ben’ rocket sculpture will also feature in the hotels lobby. The restaurant – The Bell – will be an “avant-garde” version of a traditional British pub, with green leather seating coiling through the room and tables featuring cockney rhyming slang.
Maarten Markus, managing director Northern Europe of NH Hotel Group, said: “As a vibrant, international metropolis, London is the perfect location for a nhow hotel. Cosmopolitan cities are inherently dynamic, ceaselessly producing new cultural, social and artistic trends.
“Our nhow hotels are an expression and measure of this dynamic. nhow London will reflect both the industrial past and technological future of its location and will become a creative hub for the neighbourhood.”
