It looks like Holborn will have to settle for one out of two when it comes to new hotels this year: citizenM might have been pushed back to 2015, but The Hoxton Holborn has just opened up reservations from mid-October, still promising a “late summer” arrival for the group’s second London hotel.

A live reservation system comes with a first few renderings of the public spaces (above the suitably vintage-meets-industrial lobby) and a little more information about the hotel’s 174 rooms. Good news first? While small (about 130 sq ft), we can see entry-level “Shoebox” rooms from £79 ($135) – that’s under $150 dollars a night for a central, stylish London hotel. Hurrah!

All rooms have 300-thread count sheets, rain showers, free WiFi, and complimentary breakfast bags. One step up from “Shoebox” is “Snug” at 150 sq ft, running at £129 ($220) a night. "Cosy" Rooms add a bit more breathing space, going up to 190 sq ft for £159 ($270) a night. If you want a King or Twin Beds, you’ll have to spring for a “Roomy” at 250 sq ft, which will set you back £189 ($325) a night.

The Hoxton Holborn will have two restaurants: a ground floor all-day dining option and a basement Chicken shop serving rotisserie chicken. Coffee comes courtesy of Holborn Grind, an independent coffee shop, in the lobby.

Aside from all that, the hotel will house a salon (above) as well. We’re hoping reservations will be possible closer to the summer as the hotel firms up its opening date, along with actual room images of course – stay tuned.
