The Hoxton strode onto London’s hospitality scene back in 2006, when it transformed a former car garage in hip Shoreditch into a new breed of hotel. Offering the ultimate balance of both style and value, The Hoxton’s fuss-free approach leaves you with no nasty surprises. Here, you won’t find an expensive minibar in your room, Wi-Fi by the hour or commodified water. This hotel believes the must-have amenities should come as standard – all against a decidedly chic backdrop. The electric ambience is best enjoyed from The Hoxton Grill, an all-day dining restaurant set just off the lobby. Meanwhile, The Garden provides an excellent respite from the city’s hum, particularly with a classic cocktail or a local brew in hand, and the retractable roof means you can always enjoy it—whatever the weather. Guest rooms adopt the brand’s expert formula—dark walls and parquet flooring complement the beds’ blue, padded-leather headboards and en-suite bathrooms—and each shares the same amenities, including Wi-Fi access, a stocked fridge, and a bag of healthy breakfast goodies each morning. (You can restock your in-room fridge with goods from The Hoxton’s shop, located in the lobby, where you’ll find fresh milk and more.) You can expect an authentic experience here, thanks to a monthly events program that showcases the work of local creatives, from fashion designers to musicians to artists. And, if you’re here on business, you’ll find excellent facilities within The Apartment.
In the Area
The Hoxton is situated in the heart of Shoreditch, one of London’s most distinctive areas and renowned for its creativity. You’ll find world-class restaurants sitting next to colorful street art, as well as fashionable boutique stores and plenty of pavement cafés. Old Street Tube Station (Northern line) is just a five-minute walk from the hotel, while Shoreditch High Street (London Overground) is less than 10 minutes away on foot. London’s Liverpool Street Station is less than a mile away.
How to Get There
First time in London, and I couldn't have asked for a better hotel which as part of the trip from NYC was just as memorable as the sites I saw, and restaurants I ate at. The Hoxton Shoreditch was exactly what I was looking for, and everything about it was perfect; thank you to the entire staff, but in particular Ines. Ines was incredible, and I wish we got to spend more time with her! I can't wait to be back!
What can I say? So impressed with our weekend break at The Hoxton. Such a great location, less than 5 min walk from the tube station, some great restaurants and bars nearby. Trendy and vibrant bar and grill downstairs but the rooms are quiet with no street noise heard. I mentioned on booking it was my boyfriends birthday celebration and found our room decorated and a birthday card! The breakfast bags were well received and gluten free and vegan options were available. Really loved our stay, will definitely stay again.
Very expensive for what you get.
Close to much that’s a plus but otherwise I can’t recommend The Hoxton. Breakfast not included and very expensive. 50£ a day at least for two people. Beds terrible. Really terrible. No iron at the room you have to order it up. When we did an tried the iron. The whole rooms electricity failed. Had to call technical support.. very small room. No view what so ever. And loadly. Book M by Malcome instead.
We stayed in the Hoxton hotel during festive holidays. The room we had was fantastic with modern furniture and the way the breakfast was served, waiting in a paper bag, hunged on our door outside, what a great idea! The lobby was awesome for having coffee or a drink near the fireplace and there's a restaurant but we didn't try it. Many thanks to the personnel at the reception, especially the Greek guy Nikos who made us fill very comfortable and also gave us info info how and what to visit. We'll be back!!
We started with the Hoxton Paris so our bar was very very high for this property. We changed from the Soho to this one based on our Paris stay. Although a great hotel, with a good staff and good amenities in a great location (Shoreditch). It was hard to compare to Paris. Cool hotel, cool vibe, we had no issues with the bar as others have stated, even on NYE. Staff was always available although varied on service levels. Room was good but we found small even at the biggest room available. Location to most things great! Love Shoreditch. All in all a good stay.
