The Hoxton, Shoreditch

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 9, 2010

The hotel is set in an excellent area for going out and about for the day or evening, including Hoxton, Shoreeditch and Brick Lane.

The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms although small, are full of all the extras you need, water, cofee, tea and for once real milk.

The 1 hours freee phonecalls and free wifi are an excellent idea, although I didn't get a chance to use them. Breakfast is just enough to keep you going.

I also reccomend the restaurant and more importantly the bar. Some amazing cocktails!

Perhaps not a hotel to stay in, if you want to spend hours in the room but definitely a winner for a lovely comfortable stay and I'll be going back.

Go to the Hoxton. We had a brilliant stay. The lobby is one big social gathering area and it is quite trendy. The staff are helpful and accomodating. Our room was a little on the small side, although the bathroom was pleasant and nicely appointed. We loved visiting the Shoreditch and surrounding area. It is another interesting side of London and not really touristy. In the morning you can enjoy a light breakfast and there is fresh milk for the coffee and tea. We only paid £49 which was a good price.

Uber cool hotel within walking distrance of tube station. Very open and airy, staff dressed casually but super efficient. Stayed with my partner and teenage son just for one night but we all agreed that we'd be back. The room was really modern and spacious and we had a huge shower - liked the nice touch with the free Pears soap in the bathroom (which I bought home) and the free breakfasts left on the door handle were good (banana, OJ and granola/yoghurt). Nice American diner downstairs - looked cool but didn't eat there. Already booked the Pizza Express just down the road. Only paid £49 for the room - be even better if I could get one of the £1 rooms!!

I've just got back from a 1 night stay at The Hoxton and all I can say is that we loved this place. We paid £99 for the night and although this is one of the more expensive rates for this hotel, we thought it was well worth the money. You get lots of great little extras included Aveda toiletries, Pears soup, Guardian Newspaper,Free water, Fresh milk and a light breakfast including yogurt, fresh juice, banana and we also got a chocolate bar as well.
The lobby area is great and very welcoming. The day we were there the weather was awful, non stop rain. So it was great to be able to relax in the lobby, in front of the large fireplace with a drink. We decided to eat in the restuarant that evening too and the food was really good.
We went to a couple of the places the next day, that were in The Hoxton guide and can really recommend the Diner, which was a really funky place. It sells great Milkshakes and burgers.
We really liked the area, not touristy at all which is definitely a bonus for us, full of quirky cafes and shops.

We loved this place so much that I think this will be the only hotel we'll consider when staying in London again.

The Hotel
We stayed here recently on a midweek getaway to London. You are greeted on arrival by a large and very stylish open plan lobby area with warm and friendly staff. Our room wasn't available yet (9am arrival into London) but the staff happily tagged our luggage for safe storage while we went out for breakfast and a wander. The bar restaurant area is all leather seats/cubicles and bare industrial fittings and bare brick making it look very modern but somehow at the same time inviting. Old Street tube station is about a 3-5 minute walk away.

The Room
The room itself, once we got in, was again very stylishly laid out if lacking a little in practicalities, like a place to store luggage. The bathroom while small was perfectly laid out with a large sink area and a walk-in shower cabinet with a large dinner plate sized shower coming out the ceiling, which did wonders at waking you up in the morning. Strangely, the bathroom only had one hand towel and one bathsheet on arrival. When I called down to ask for extra towels I was directed to the spare bedding bag located above the wardrobe! Would it have been so hard to just put 2 sets of towels out in the bathroom?

The room comes with a mini fridge which gets stocked daily with 2 bottles of mineral water, a nice touch when the usual is to pay through the nose for the contents in other hotel mini fridges. You also get a free breakfast bag each morning, when requested, containing a banana, a yoghurt and a bottle of orange juice should you just want something light.

Our room was unfortunately looking out onto Willow Street which was continually noisy each morning from around 7am with either delivery trucks, bin lorries or in our case road works. If we had been staying longer it would have got on our nerves. If you request an even numbered room then you should get a room overlooking the central atrium and will have a quieter experience as a result. It's probably best to request when booking.

Other things to note about the room; The coffee in it is great and you get a small fresh milk in the fridge each morning. The TV system is not great; its slow to respond and the internet part was rubbish, but on the flip side you get free wifi so good if you brought your laptop. There is a mini safe. There is not much clothes storage which would affect you if you were staying longer. The is a good air con system, which was welcome as the room was very warm through the night.

The Restaurant
We only ate once in the evening at the Hotel and it was a late night order from the snacks menu, the food that we had however was excellent. We had 2 breakfasts during our stay and again the food was superb. My wife had the blueberry waffles twice they were that good and I had smoked salmon and scrambled egg (great eggs) and the full english (all quality ingredients). My only gripe would be the price of the coffee; £2.50 for filter coffee seems rather steep considering the cappuccino, latte and others were also £2.50 and there was no suggestion of bottomless cups (free refill) on the filter stuff. We were just under £50 for 2 mornings of cooked breakfasts, but I guess that's London for you.

All in all I would have no difficultly recommending this hotel to our friends but with the added warning about getting the right room location to avoid both the view and noise from Willow Street.

My husband and I choose this hotel based on teh review of this forum. The hotel is located 10 mins from the tubes. The check-in is fast and the staff at reception is helpful as we arrived the hotel a bit earlier than the normal check-in time, they still can arrange the room for us.

The stmosphere at the lobby is good. Rooms are comfortable and the hotel was modern. breakfast they provided are light but great.

My wife and I work in the hotel industry,so we know the ins and outs of services and facilities in a hotel.The staff at reception are polite,professional and friendly. The check-in is fast and efficient.

The room is contemporary,with a walk in shower as some hotels for a double room have a bath and shower together.

The location is not too far from London central as the station is 5mins walk away.The are good restaurants and bars nearby the hotel but after tasting the Hoxton Grill food and having some of the amazing cocktails...who would want to leave to greener pastures.I just want to say that the food (sirlion) in the Hoxton Grill is to die for.The meat was tender and the knife was cutting through the meat like butter...
