I was at the Hoxton for a 2 night stay earlier this week (Sunday/Monday) whilst attending a course in the Old Street area. I really liked the hotel, which has a cool, urban vibe - but without the prententious attitude you can often find in similar places. Staff were friendly and helpful, the room was plenty big enough with a comfy double bed, good-size desk (unfortunately I had to work a bit in the evenings but nice that this was possible!) and lovely bathroom.
What I especially loved were all the 'extras': free WIFI, 1 hour of free landline calls per day, free light breakfast, a decent-sized fridge stocked (and replenished) with fresh milk and bottled water, free newspapers... where else do get all that? They are small things which make a massive difference and are highly appreciated.
I ate in the bar one evening and had room service the next, both fine although not a massive menu. The bar/lounge area is very inviting, the only small comment I would make is that low lighting and loud music for eating on a Sunday evening are perhaps not what everyone wants. Dining alone there were no small tables in the restaurant area (though I was offered one end of a larger table!) so I ended up perching on the end of an armchair in the lounge and eating over a very low table - fine for drinks maybe but not so comfortable for dining.
Anyway, overall a big thumbs up and I’ll definitely be back. Please keep up the good work, Hoxton!
