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
Very hip and comfy hotel. The location was perfect in Shoreditch. A very quick walk from Liverpool Street Station. Tons to do in the area. The bathroom was great and the bed was super comfortable. The lobby turned into a busy bar area everynight I was there which was funny. It made the lobby busy and wasn't the best place for a quick bite to eat or evening drink if you weren't in the mood for club life but it was fun! You could not hear the noise at all as soon as we you went into the elevator. Very cool place to stay!
Really enjoyed our stay - brilliant hotel for birthday celebrations (celebrated a 40th birthday). Super busy in the bar after we came back from dinner though, it was just impossible to get a drink but overall - perfect!
This is a great hotel with excellent service and personal touches. It wasn’t partners birthday and our anniversary and they organised complimentary Prosecco in the room and an early check in. The room although small (it was a cosy double though) was spotless with fresh milk and lovely fluffy towels. My only criticism would be the level of rowdy revellers inside the front of house and spilling onto the road outside just after midnight when we returned to the hotel. Some very drunk individuals tried to get in our taxi as we were getting out and they were quite abusive. It may be an idea to have some security at the entrance if this is normal.
