“A great London spot.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Had a great stay at the Hoxton - a 4 night stay that did not disappoint. The staff were helpful and friendly, the restaurant was very good (and room service food was not marked up above the cost of eating in the restaurant - nice touch) and rooms were modern, comfortable and clean with a great shower. The lobby is a cozy and fun place to hang out for drinks, a bite or a cup of tea by the fire. There were also lovely extras - an hour free calling to Canada/US, free milk (great for my morning cuppa) and free breakfast bag left outside our room with delicious yogurt/granola/berries, fresh squeezed orange juice and a banana. The location is not close to many of the main attractions of London but for us that was a plus - to get away from the hustle and bustle but still be close to the tube. There are restaurants nearby - a short walk to Old Spitalfields market and Brick Lane - but we ate several times at the Hoxton Grill in the hotel, eating at the hotel restaurant is something I don't usually do. I will definitely be back and won't hesitate to recommend the Hoxton.

This is the most awesome Hotel in London. use this Hotel when I am on business in London it's much better than the typical boring business hotels in chelsea and kensington . Great rooms and the best bar/lounge area in town. the restaurant also serves great food which is unuasual for most Hotels. The staff are awesome as well very easy going but still proffesional. I can highly recommend this Hotel!

Had a great stay here last Saturday. The Hoxton Hotel is in a great location, a stones throw from the trendy East London markets, clubs and drinking dens. An impressive building indeed with a great bar , restaurant and cool outsidey/insidey eating area. Free Wi-Fi in the rooms, free newspapers, and even some cool Macs to surf and leather sofas to lounge on whilst you hangout waiting for you friends/family to emerge from their rooms.

The rooms themselves are are good size and the queen size beds seemed bigger and more comfy than average. The bathroom and shower was well designed and roomy. Lots of details in the decoration and design made it feel more expensive than it is.

The staff were also very cool (in a nice friendly way) and super helpful, even late at night when the lobby became a bit wild! Back in the rooms it was nice and quiet despite the revelry below and the air-con worked really well, allowing us to sleep soundly on a muggy London night.

If you want to experience a hip hotel in a happening part of London then the Hoxton is the place to say - and at a pretty reasonable rate too! Warning! squares, stick in the muds and fuddy-duddies keep well clear!

I just stayed for a couple of nights at the Hoxton and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The hotel is trendy and fun. The room was clean and comfortable. Staff were always friendly and helpful. The location is great, not far from the tube so it is easy to get anywhere but away from the hustle and bustle of central London. I will for sure stay there again on future trips to London.

I had booked the Hoxton Hotel based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and wasn't disappointed. I was given a quieter room on the 5th floor as requested and the General Manager had left a hand written note wishing me a happy birthday and 2 birthday balloons which was a lovely touch. The free wi fi and calls to land lines plus the free healthy breakfast and papers are all much appreciated added extras. The service on the whole was great (the bar manager went out of his way to get me a champagne bucket for the peonies I had bought at the flower market) and the food in the Hoxton Grlll downstairs was very good. The location is fab and the rooms are small but perfectly kitted out, clean and the beds are very comfortable. I will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room choose a higher level

Great service and value for money are what we are about. We love to add in the little extras - free wifi, breakfast bag delivered to your door, an hour of free phone calls per day and lobby shop at high street prices.
See you next time!

Stayed at the Hoxton for two nights. Its well situated near to Shoreditch which has a really cool feel to it. Definitely worth a visit.
The hotel was spotless and the room was a nice size. Lots of cool touches. What was particularly noticeable however was the friendliness of all the staff. Were all genuinely helpful throughout.
The dining room, the grill at the hoxton is a bit noisy, not necessarily a bad thing as it has a good buzz maybe just not the place for a very quiet meal. That said the food was excellent.
All in all a really good experience. I dont hesitate to recommend it.
