High Holborn offers great value private rooms in an amazing central London location. The building is literally a stone's throw from some of London's most famous shops, museums, theatres and landmarks. Single and twin rooms are available giving you a little more privacy than a bed in a shared dominatory.

Covent Garden and Oxford street are within two minutes walk and one of London's famous west end theatres is just across the road. High Holborn is the ideal base from which to explore London.

On the lower ground floor you'll fine the bar area complete with pool tables, fussball, wide screen TV and air hockey. There is also a coin-opperated laundry. There are pay-as-you-go internet terminals in reception. The communal areas are also covered by BT Openzone WiFi (subscription required). Internet access is not yet available in the bedrooms we're working on it though!

The combination of quality rooms and spectacular location make High Holborn hard to beat!

The rooms all have their own key and are laid out in clusters with about six rooms sharing a toilet, shower and kitchen. The kitchens are fully equipped for self-catering which can be a great way to save costs in London! Our prices include an excellent continental breakfast, linen, towels and housekeeping.

The building is non-smoking throughout.

High Holborn has a friendly reception desk open 8am to 9pm, offering advice on local attractions, transport etc. Outside of these times security staff are present.
