We had a beautifully decorated, modern room with great facilities -iron and ironing board; fridge; kettle, toaster, microwave; cutlery and crockery in a mini-kitchenette - but we didn't know before we got there that there would be those facilities or we'd have brought our own breakfast. The only breakfast is a cold breakfast basket delivered to the room which we... More

After looking for a family room in Oxford, we nearly went home. Thank goodness we found this lovely hotel! Such warm friendly stuff, clean and excellent family size room! It changed our view of Oxford accommodation. We highly recommend, it was good value.

We could not have been happier with Ethos Hotel! Our room was clean and tidy with everything we needed! I can't say exactly what but there was a charm that made our experience great! I would gladly stay here again and appreciate the extra hospitality the stuff exhibited.

We stayed for a couple of nights in Ethos Hotel, in one of the new executives suites. Everything was perfect! We had AC, Sky channels, kitchenette with fridge, coffee machine... We couldn't ask for more! We felt like home and we looking forward to come again!

This small hotel is around 15 minutes' walk from the centre of town and station. It's tucked away in a residential area and seems to be a modern conversion of a corner terrace. Rooms are small and okay for one; a family would really struggle. It's not cheap, but that just reflects Oxford where good value is very hard to... More

Visited the Ethos Hotel on 12-14 July. Nice location on a quiet side street close to the downtown area. Stayed in two rooms as we requested something bigger for the last night. The experience was good but somewhat variable and further attention to details is necessary to complete the room setups. The staff were, however, quite helpful: when we shifted... More

To be fair, the Manager was very pleasant and helpful and she bent over backwards to do the right thing, but this hotel just does not cut it. Cleanliness. If I am staying away from home, I do not want someone else's (whom I do not know) fingerprints on my bathroom mirror and wardrobe door. Our room had not been... More

Ethos Hotel is very conveniently located, about a ten minute walk to the center of Oxford, over the Thames and past the Head of the River. The rooms were extremely clean with lovely beds, nice and very modern bathrooms. We arrived early and the staff were very accommodating, storing our luggage until the room was ready; when we returned later,... More

My only complaint was that the carpet was considerably stained. While the reception and public areas are quite small, the staff is quite willing to do almost anything to insure that their guests have a wonderful stay. They bring a generous basket of continental breakfast items and each room is outfitted with a microwave, sink, fridge, and dishes. Coffee and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Ethos Hotel for three nights in April 2014. We were looking for a comfortable, affordable base from which to sight see and visit family in the Oxford area. We were very pleased with the Ethos. The hotel is located on a side street in a very quiet residential area just south of the... More
