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
I go to Hoxton regularly because of the good food friendly staff and nice ambience. Also I got my discount card which gives me and friends 50% on food and drinks on the weekends 😀 try the amazing Mac and cheese, mouth watering!
The first thing that caught my attention was the stylish lobby, where you can have a very hip coffee (Special mention to Carlos!) by the fireplace and surround yourself with young Shoreditch locals working on their laptops, can´t get more instagrammable than that! A few other nice surprises are the continental socket already installed in the room and the safe, where you can actually fit in your computer! Glory be! Also, the staff always very warm and helpful. Feels like arriving to grandma´s for your summer vacay! Will come back
The hotel is really pretty ! busy with a great Vibe!! The staff is amazing and nothing is a big deal for them. I want to thank Niko from Greece for the time he spent to help me with a project I had to finish! He was really easy going! I will definitely go back to a hoxton in the future!
Best hotel in Shoreditch, east London. Close to the tube station Old Street with cool bars, restaurants and street art around the corner. Spitalfields market is a must-see. The beds are so comfortable, that you sleep like a baby. The restaurant has delicious food, you get to call your friends anywhere in the world for an Hour for free to brag how amazing the hotel is, which has a branch in Holborn, Paris and the US.
But the most important fact is, that the staff does everything to make you feel welcome. Especially Nikos (or Nicco) was very professional, took his time to help with tube connections and cultural tipps and did it with such an ease and happiness! I wish all of the staff in every hotel would treat the guest like he does. I felt pampered and think this young fella deserves a bonus or promotion.
Or can you nominate him as: employee of the year 2019? I will come back and recommend your hotel as others have recommended this guy with his super positive attitude. Thank you for the wonderful stay!
Decorated to a high standard. Check in was straight forward and you can ask where in the hotel you would like your room. We chose a room on a high floor. The room has a huge window with a great view of Shoreditch. The room wasn't at all as small as Z hotels. Huge bed and large tv. Bathroom and toiletries very nice touch. Good mirrors and lighting. Manager Nikos was really cool with all our requests! Would stay again!
