“Superb Hotel with lovely people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Just to keep it short: The Hoxton is modern, but payable. Located close to Liverpool Street Station and Moorgate Station, you can get easily to all major attractions in London. A small breakfast is included and can be brought up to the room (Banana, Orange Juice, Yoghurt) or you can have a normal breakfast downstairs for an extra charge. A restaurant is in the hotel, but havent used it. The rooms are clean and equipped with all you need. Even the bathroom is for British conditions very clean. The room size is smaller than usual, but why would you spend so much time in the hotel anyways. The people at reception are all nice, friendly and professional.

Only back point is parking. There are a few spaces at the back of the hotel and everything around has to be paid for which isnt cheap. Best to come with public transport to Liverpool Station (Bus directly from London Stansted Airport) and walk 10min.

I would go again and again.

Room Tip: The higher the room the better the view over London!

We stay here as often as we can; although we are mid 50s the energy of the hotel is infectious and the staff always great. Super shower; great little extras and best value in London. Nearby City beverage has great wines to take away; hotel breakfast is great but also try ALBION: just over 5 mins on foot.

Having paid £160 for a one night stay, believe me my expectations were high and I was not disappointed! The service we experienced was excellent from everyone we encountered. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel very welcome. I was particularly impressed with Dyon on reception who upgraded our friends room for her birthday and personally took champagne to her room as a birthday treat.

The whole place has a cool retro vibe and the bar was buzzing at night! The room amenities and the breakfast bags were a nice touch and the power shower was fab!

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to return! #HoxtonRocks

I've stayed in the Hoxton before, really loved it and reviewed it here. But this time I was staying nearby and brought the family round to try out the food - we weren't disappointed.

Unlike many hotels, the main public area is always buzzing and the restaurant is part of this atmosphere instead of being cut off from it. Sunday night, very busy but no problem getting a table and really good food. Being Irish, I find Guinness so often disappointing in heathen England - but here (on tap) it was really good. When the manager came round to check up and I commented on this, he got me a further pint on the house. Now that's service - and no I wasn't angling for this either.

The 3 girls with me loved the food and even managed to bother the desert menu - another good sign.

I still really like this place.

My wife and I stayed at Hoxton in July and had a wonderful four days. From the cheerful team at the reception, to the daily breakfast delivery, the cool rooms and the strong showers. And the grill downstairs does an excellent dinner, among a cool club like atmosphere. Definitely the best value experience in London!

Room Tip: Get the ones facing the courtyard.

We were staying in this hotel for one night as we had a late party to attend.
The location is great and there are lot's of bars and restaurants around, but i was a bit disappointed with the room; rooms are clean and the staff of the hotel is very friendly, but for some reason in our room we found only one bath towel to share for two. No robes and no towels for hands were found either. As well, there was no any body lotion to apply after shower.
As we arrived after work and next day had to go to work as well, i found all that a bit inconvenient, considering that you pay £190 per night.

Hi Tapathaero,

Thanks so much for taking the time to let us know your feedback. We are so pleased you liked the location, clean rooms and our staff! Although, we do need to do a better of job of letting you know where the extra bath and hand towels are located - just above the wardrobe!

Again, thank you for letting is know your comments,
