Greek Boutique Hotel Brand Ergon House Is Opening in London

The Covent Garden property will be its first hotel outside of Greece

Though it’s expanding in the hotel market with Ergon House locations, the Ergon brand started life as a food-focused operation showcasing artisanal Mediterranean produce. The company boasts over 20 stores across Greece, Cyprus and the Middle East, adding Ergon House in Athens to its portfolio in 2019 (it also has a beach club in Chalkidiki). The Athens hotel is set up a bit like a Greek version of Eataly – the Agora on the ground floor features greengrocers, butchers, bakers, fishmongers and a deli – with rooms above the marketplace.

Now Ergon House is coming to London, taking over a heritage-listed building on the corner of King Street and Garrick Street in Covent Garden. Just as in Athens, the hotel will feature an Agora marketplace filled with the best farm-to-table produce as well as a rooftop restaurant with a terrace, a fitness centre, and 20 bedrooms.

Speaking about the London opening, Thomas Douzis, founder and CEO of ERGON, said, “ERGON House Covent Garden marks a significant milestone for us. It represents our dedication and commitment to providing a memorable, one-of-a-kind experience for guests, and marks a new era in our journey. We chose Covent Garden for our first location in the UK because of its strong reputation in retail and F&B. It offers a unique opportunity for us with local and international visitors, and the solid cultural foundation it has cultivated. We look forward to embedding ourselves within the West End.”
