Bonjour lecteurs! You know it by now, I love my life in Kent. But I am equally in my element when we are in London… So it was very exciting for us to stay at the very picturesque Nhow London. We checked out the colourful hotel to celebrate Grumpy Boyfriend’s birthday at the end of March. And the hotel decorated in ‘punk meets high-tech’ vibes certainly did not disappoint! If you are looking for a cool hotel to stay in London, it should definitely be on your list next…
The Nhow London
The Nhow London is located in the thriving area between Hoxton, Islington, and Shoreditch.
If you plan to party uptown and you are looking for a quirky location, this is your place.
The hotel is a pop of colours in a very trendy area and just a few minutes walk from Old Street.
After a short commute from Saint Pancras International, we made it to the Nhow London Hotel.
And the tone was set as soon as we arrived. Indeed, the lobby is a burst of colour with Big Ben literally going into space.
Such a great start for Stanley! He was surely excited about it.
Designed by the architecture and interiors studio, Project Orange, the hotel is full of surprises. It’s like being on a movie set.
Once checked in, we made it to our suite’s floor. Walk along the dark corridor with multicolour doors et voilà!
It felt like I was in a Stanley Kubrick movie or something alike.
Our Frenchie Suite
Our room was as exciting as the lounge. We actually got a suite for more family space.
We absolutely loved the light in the room via the glass windows. It felt so contemporary and luminous.
As we walked in, we had a little living room space with some wine and chocolates welcoming us.
The sofa could turn into a bed. While the main bedroom was decorated with a mix of pop/punk royalty items.
Mon détail préférée? The mix of traditional colours with des touches plus modernes. The Nhow London is truly playful for your eyes.
La salle de bains adjacent to our bed was equally sumptuous. With a painting inspired by Renaissance Art. For a cheeky twist.
You even had a peephole to see through the bathroom!
This time around, I fell in love with the dark green tiles mixed with the luxurious bathtub.
When you stay at the Nhow London, you truly feel like you are a princesse or even a queen. Every little détails are here to remind you so with crowns on the cushions, towels etc.
Le plus? You can even open the curtain to unveil London. Stanley certainly found it funny to be able to have a peak into the bathroom while in the corridor.
Encore, the mix of traditionnel et moderne is beautifully orchestrated.
Facilities & Atmosphere
The whole hotel is based on this punk / royal concept so that your stay is never ever boring! It’s truly bold and bright.
For sure, the Nhow London is one of the most fun and colourful places we have ever stayed.
We were back to the lobby for a cocktail to celebrate the birthday boy and we certainly loved the bar and its sets of neon lights.
The decor is just super cool and very colourful. That’s lucky I packed some of my best frocks to match one of the most Instagrammable hotels.
If you like something fun and très différent, this is your place! It’s very extravagant in so many ways, so maybe not for everyone.
Food at Nhow London
We also enjoyed some dinner at the restaurant of the hotel. The place reminded me of Spanish restaurants with its bold colours and decor. Now, it’s a totally different place.
Le restaurant follows the same concept with some cool and hype vibes.
Surprisingly, it was rather quiet. But we still made the most of it with a set of burgers for him and me.
While Stanley ordered the cheesiest pizza ever.
Les desserts were certainly colourful too! I don’t want to even think about the calories. But we went back to our room satisfied and really full.
The place was busier for the breakfast and we enjoyed a lovely selection of pastries and more.

Celebrate the occasion and your new king in style with a stay at Nhow London.
The hotel is extravagant with a burst of colours. The decor is playful. If you want an adventure in the cool districts of Hoxton and Old Street, the location has the right hype for you.

The suites are probably not naturally aimed at families but our room turned out to be a great playroom for Stanley. The entire space was fun and very family-friendly in the end!
He loved the decor and the punk / futuristic touches. Or should I say the props? After all, it felt un peu like a movie set!
Bravo to the team who designed it. It’s très différent from any other stays we had.
