“Excellent, fun hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We just stayed at the Hoxton Hotel over New Year's. There were 10 of us total and we had 5 rooms. The rooms were small but adequate and very trendy. 8 of our group were in their 20's and all loved the lobby, restaurant/bar. It seemed there were always people there enjoying themselves. The hotel is very close to the Old Street tube station so it was easy to get around London. A light breakfast was delivered daily and we were able to call home with our 1 hour of free calls per day! We had a little hiccough with the taxis that were arranged to take us from the hotel to the airport on our departure day but it was fixed very quickly by the Hoxton staff.

I don't often stay in London hotels as I live here but thought this place was brilliant, beats the sterile feel of so many other chains. The room was cosy, pretty trendy and upon entering the room we spent our first few minutes checking out all its impressive little quirks! The 'Congratulations' balloons in our room was also a nice touch seeing that it was our wedding night.

Location is great, tons of places to eat and drink around the corner but you could easily spend the evening in the lobby with the big pile rugs and comfy armchairs by the fireplace.

Overall I loved it and would definitely recommend/stay there again if I need a change of scenery.

I stayed at this hotel with my partner and 7 year old daughter. I was slightly worried about the space in the room with an extra bed in, but the room we had was big enough for the extra bed and still plenty of room left. The hotel itself is amazing. Very trendy, great location, just a 5 minute walk from Old Street tube Station. The room was great, and the small things really matter. Lovely toiletries in the bathroom, excellent tea and coffee, fresh milk and a fridge which was really handy. Also a safe in the room which was really handy. We stayed on New Years Eve and although there was a party on in the bar, there wasnt too much noise and we still slept really easily. I will definitely return to this hotel and would recommend it to anyone. I think i would also go out on a limb and say this is the best hotel i have ever stayed in! Thank you Hoxton!

Great friendly hotel where you don't feel that your every move is charged extortionately. We stayed for a couple of nights with two children under 3 and though the room wasn't huge, it was light, well kept, clean and quiet enough for us to be able to relax (no small thing, in London at its price). The hotel provided an extra bed and travel cot at no extra charge. The restaurant was child friendly with a special menu and the staff both there and in the hotel were all helpful. There's a ping pong table for bigger kids. Location is great for both local and central London/city sightseeing but the nearest tube station (Old Street) was closed throughout our stay for engineering works. The reception bar area was a good place to sit both with the kids and friends. Overall, a very positive experience after a number of average stays in worse hotels for more money.

Excellent hotel, lively, friendly and clean. Staff we're helpful and nothing too much trouble. We had a designer room, would recommend these rooms. Family stayed in other rooms and one smelt very musty? However overall, excellent hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for designer rooms, beds very comfortable and showers are fabulous.

Besides of being very arty and hip, the hotel is also very conveniently located, clean, with a great staff and excellent food. “Lite” breakfast is actually quite substantial and nutritious. I have stayed at the hotel twice already and definitely coming back. This is my place in London!
