“Very well thought out but felt like a trendy,luxury jail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Stayed here overnight while on business in London. Greatly impressed by the attention to detail shown here-they really have thought about the small things which taken together make for an excellent stay. Things like the mini guide to Shoreditch in the room, the breakfast bag included in the price and delivered to the room door, good coffee with milk and also bottled water in the room at no extra charge, a cash machine and mini shop in the lobby and a bathroom with an excellent monsoon shower. The hotel is designed to a high hip and trendy standard. This works really well in the lobby which is a wide but comfortable space with an open fire and comfy chairs. The bar is here and is a fine place to have a drink (I have reviewed the restaurant separately). I have also used the meeting rooms at the back before and these are among the best I have used in a hotel. However, upstairs, the design themes work slightly less well for my taste. The corridors have a mocked up metal bulkhead effect and my room was quite dark and spartan with a view out only to the internal atrium and no space in which to relax other than on the bed. I just felt more conscious than usual that I was in one of many identical rooms stacked on top of each other with a feel like a very smart, clean and comfortable jail. That said, my night was comfortable and the place impeccably clean. The location is good for the City, 10 minutes walk from the top end of Bishopsgate and given that and the overall attention to detail I will stay here again for sure. I am not sure that I would stay here for more than a night or two though given they way I felt about the room.

This is simply the best hotel for a really great price. My absolute favourite stay in London. The service is excellent and the rooms are spotless. A really convenient and comfortable stay with really nice touches, good ethos.

We stayed here midweek in early January for a night out in London. It was wonderful - great room, lovely and clean, really nice bathroom, breakfast bags a great idea. In short tremendous attention to detail. The views from the room (5th floor at the back) over towards the Shard were also great. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, and the lobby, bar and restaurant area downstairs is fantastic. We will definitely look forward to coming back again.

Room Tip: 5th floor facing towards the Shard.

Very cool hotel, very hip, trendy. My hubby & I were away on a break from the kids. Loved the lobby/foyer area & would have loved to get an armchair by the fireplace in the evening to chill out with a glass of wine. But fri & sat nights - not possible - very busy spot. Would recommend for people looking for good night life/party scene. Having said that we couldn't hear any noise/music in our room on the 4th floor. Staff were lovely. Nice touches - free light brekkie, guardian paper....10 mins from Spitalfields markets and a few cool pubs near by. i'd come back again for sure

Have stayed here 4 or 5 times now. Excellent value and a really well thought out hotel. Rooms are small, but very well designed. The room rate includes loads of useful extras that many hotels don't even think about or charge for such as fresh milk, bottled water, free wifi (easy to use, no codes etc.). The staff go out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Stylish and busy bar & grill on the ground floor as well as lots of good places to eat nearby. Just a short walk to Old Street tube station, making it a good place to stop over even if you don't plan to stay in the east end.

Location is very practical (just some 400m form Old Street Underground station), rooms are no nonsense good: everything you need and no unnecessary extras. Service is very warm and even personal. You want some negative comments: they're hard to find but: the entrance/reception area is a very popular bar/restaurant/meeting place and can be very noisy. And if you have a room that looks out on the inner court: smokers can make some noise there in the late evening. We already staid here 3 times and highly recommend the hotel

Room Tip: rooms looking out on the inner court have some noise from smokers in the late evening

I like staying here. It’s a Hoxton hero. The location is perfect if you need to be in East London. The rooms are a little small but in good shape (the beds could be bigger). The service and restaurant is second to none and the hotel has a nice vibe. It’s excellent value for money.
