Holmes Hotel London, filled with intrigue and mystery
A home-from-home for curious minds.
London’s iconic Chiltern Street, Marylebone Village, has welcomed a premium boutique hotel; Holmes Hotel London. Perfectly blending a unique sense of Baker Street heritage, immersive playfulness and luxury, the new hotel offers an intriguing new destination in the capital.
Comprising four stunning Georgian buildings housed over four floors, in a combination of 118 sophisticated guest rooms and unique duplex suites, each with expansive living areas, design-led interiors, stunning marble bathrooms with freestanding bathtub and TV, mini-bars and vinyl players. The multi-million-pound site boasts contemporary facilities such as a high-tech yet vintage-style gym, a playful and vibrant bar paired with a modern dining experience that celebrates exceptional produce, beautiful lounge and library spaces, perfect for working and relaxing, as well as three diverse meeting areas. Holmes Hotel London offers a home-away-from-home for the contemporary traveller looking for a personalised experience in one of London’s most sought-after villages, flawlessly balancing style and substance.
With an expert eye for contemporary design, award-winning design agency Digital Space has created the vision for the new hotel, whilst Zopsigog have continued the storytelling through flavoured intrigue and mystery; a nod to the historic and modern Sherlock Holmes culture. The public spaces showcase a stylish mix of antiques, curiosities and artefacts mixed with contemporary furniture by leading designers including Muuto, limited-edition art by Nelly Duff Gallery, traditionally crafted patterned throws by Simon Key Bertman, sumptuous fabrics and furnishings by Mourne Textiles and exquisite amenities by British brand Gilchrist & Soames.
Kitchen at Holmes, Marylebone’s favourite new neighbourhood restaurant and bar, is influenced by the seasons and Head Chef Stefano Motto’s travels. The menu reflects the variety of London’s culinary zeitgeists, with ingredients, flavours and techniques from around the world conveyed through Stefano’s own sophisticated signature style. From Raw Scottish Scallop & Yuzu and Wagyu Steak to a classic Buffalo Ricotta and Truffle Ravioli and Spanish-inspired Pluma de Ibérico Bellota, dishes always have an emphasis on ingredient provenance. The bar is a destination in its own right, with resident nightly DJ sets and a drinks menu that offers an array of whimsical, creative cocktails and carefully curated spirits and wine. From the signature Sherlock’s Pipe cocktail, which playfully hints to the legendary detective who resided on Baker Street, to the herbal hibiscus and elderflower infused KT Time, served in a teapot as a nod to Ms Hudson’s teatime ritual, in-house mixologist Peppe Corallo entertains guests with his fun-loving yet sophisticated concoctions. Furthermore, the wine list is a journey of the old and new world with famous chateaux and exciting smaller producers which will give oenophiles plenty of interest.
While visiting, guests can indulge in the relaxed yet chic feel of the local area, cosmopolitan and full of personality. Local iconic highlights include Selfridges, Regent’s Park, Baker Street and The Wallace Collection whilst nearby Marylebone Station offers direct links to popular Bicester Village. Guests can also enjoy the local independent hotspots Daunt books, Alfie’s Antiques, Content Beauty, La Fromagerie and Casely-Hayford. The property is a delightful base to explore the city from, perfect for romantic weekend getaways, chic city breaks and family stays, with thoughtful touches such as teepee tents and teddies for little ones.
