“Awesome stay”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

We stayed for a long weekend holiday in February upon recommendation from a friend and were impressed with almost all aspects of our stay. I travel ~150 nights a year for business and am fortunate to usually stay in high end hotels and I will say that the service at Hoxton was as thoughtful and caring as even the best of the luxury category hotels. The restaurant and bar is stylish and happening, but not in that over the top, cheezy W Hotels way, its more a classy, hip hangout. The rooms were a bit small, but were stylish and had great beds. And the surrounding area was filled with very cool spots to go enjoy - cool restaurants, stylish bars, and tons of neat shops. Hotel staff were quick to point us to some great spots and the ones we happened into were equally as awesome. The area was a great alternative to the highly touristed areas and we thought allowed us to take in London more as a local. All around great stay, we will definitely stay there again when back in London.

Room Tip: They have concept rooms, which are individually designed (Staff showed us one and it was very cool b...

Over past 5 years stayed at The Hoxton at least a dozen times. Just before we go in ask ourselves' our we getting on a bit for this trendy hotel, located in the heart of Old St/ Shoreditch'? But as soon as we get through the doors quickly remember how great it is. Style, decore, yes lots of beautiful people, but also lots like us and fantastic staff. The rooms on the smallish size, need to go above 4th floor especially on Friday/ Saturday evenings because the bar area is rammed though the sound proofing is excellent. Just returned from another 2 night stay, and absolutely nothing to complain about. Interesting area of London, the flower market on a Sunday morning a treat, and on the Sunday evening we walked to the Barbican for a concert.

For clubbing and drinking this is a good area to be based for a few days. The rooms are clean and functional with some nice touches (good quality toiletries, comfortable bed, good shower). The room was quiet considering we were on the first floor. The TV is difficult to operate.

Disappointingly most of the service staff seem to see service as a chore. I would suggest the restaurant drop the service charge and encourage the staff to earn tips - I would normally give 20% for good service and zero for bad. An automatic 12.5% service charge is difficult to handle for a customer. Despite the food being above average I will not return to the restaurant for this reason. Frankly the high unemployment rate should be seen as an opportunity to hire friendlier staff.

Hi Alex G ,

Thanks for telling us about your recent visit. We were pleased to read you like the rooms, but less pleased to hear about your experience in the Grill!

Stayed in the hotel a couple of times now and its still living up to our expectations. Staff is very nice and helpful. Rooms are tidy, clean and the beds are comfortable.
Should you have the time, walk around in the hotel area with the hoxton recommendation map, always good tips. Will definitely return again!

I quite literally checked in to this place at 11pm and checked out at 8am the next morning.

However, it was a pleasant night it what i can only describe as a stylish and quirky venue. The staff were very helpful, the room was clean, tidy and had everything you needed, if a little awkwardly laid out - this may be the quirky side of stylish!

Breakfast was certainly a perf - you place your order outside your door and it is hung up for you the followinf morning - if a little on the light side, it's perfect if you are on the go.

I'd love to go back and try out the restaurant here, and maybe try a bigger room if possible.

Brilliant - really trendy without trying too hard. Very individual hotel, but all of the little quirks were for a good reason. Handy for tube, for good inexpensive food and everything else. Really reasonable room prices (weekend, booked well in advance) and lots of nice touches. Our group of 2 couples in mid-late 40s didn't feel out of place despite the general air of trendiness. Coffee in the rooms was as good as anything I've had on the few occasions have travelled 5*. The shower was lovely and everything was really clean. Will stay here again and will recommend to others.
