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

We stayed at this hotel for one night along with relatives. Our accommodations was lovely being over two floors. However it is unforgivable for a hotel to have such unpleasant toilet pans. In both our room and relatives room the pans were thick with dirty lime scale stains and not what one would expect from a boutique hotel. Also there... More
