NEW YORK, Dec. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyde Hotels today announced Hyde Paradox Hotel London City, which will be coming soon to the historic location by the Old Bailey in the heart of London. The 110-room property will occupy 15 Old Bailey, a building originally known as the 'Spiers & Pond Hotel'. Built in 1874 by architect Evans Cronk and converted to office use in the early 1900s, the latest re-conversion by Hyde London City owners, OB Capital seeks to return the asset back to the iconic hotel that it once was. This stylish property will provide a sanctuary for those in-the-know seeking a luxurious hideaway while in the city.
Hyde Hotels, Resorts & Residences is part of Ennismore, a creative hospitality company rooted in culture and community, with a global collective of entrepreneurial and founder-built brands with purpose at their heart. Ennismore is a joint venture with Accor, formed in 2021.

We are incredibly excited to be introducing Hyde to London, particularly at this location, which possesses such an incredibly rich history. Hyde Paradox Hotel London City will be a destination unto itself, bringing a new kind of hospitality grounded in the spirit of discovery, the fantasy of nightlife and the adventure of connection."
Liza Masías, Co-Founder of Boscalt said: "It is very exciting for our team at Boscalt, to be a part of the story of the first Hyde hotel in Europe.
