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 stayed at The Hoxton, Shoreditch on Saturday night (10th November) after my hen party and will be forever grateful for the manager on duty very early on Sunday morning (I am presuming the Night Manager, but I may be wrong).
I suffer from severe anxiety and panic attacks on a regular basis, and on Sunday morning at around 5am, I had a very severe panic attack. I was in my hotel room alone and really unsure of what to do, so I decided to go down into the hotel lobby. I let the manager know that I was having a bad panic attack and that I just needed to be around people. He was so unbelievably kind, having suffered with anxiety in previous years, he knew exactly where I was coming from, and exactly what I needed. He got be water, and a paper bag (although I had never used this technique before), and sat and just talked to me. He of course had other customers to deal with, and so was doing this as well, but always came back as soon as possible.
It sounds like such a little gesture, but to me, it made all the difference. I do not know what I would've done had it not been for his patience and understanding, so please please pass on my personal thanks... I will be eternally grateful!
I am not sure of his name unfortunately, but he was on the shift on Sunday 11th November at around 5am, I went back upstairs to my room around 6:30 and he was still working. He was South African, tanned skin, quite slim and was wearing an orange jumper.
Really cool from.the moment you step through the door. The room was stylish and the restaurant was fun, great atmosphere with a club feel and friendly staff. Hoxton Burger didn't fail to disappoint ! I'm and don't forget the cocktails
If you're looking for a party venue, for after your day of site-seeing, then this is for you. I can imagine it's great to get stuck in.
Otherwise it's just an average hotel, which plays on it's 'Hip' location. If it hadn't of been for a deal on this hotel, we would have stayed elsewhere. and next time i will.
Nothing bad to say about it, in terms of comfort or cleanliness. but just nothing above an beyond that warranted the price, so just average, but that's not bad.
Good location, helpful staff, functional rooms but where it lacks the most is no variation in it's little breakfast bag. I stayed for 16 nights and imagine the same banana, granola and oj daily with no variety. I stopped having breakfast after few days.
Have free international calling, water and milk. Cleaning staff should have more attention to detail as almost daily I had to request either for coffee or sweeter or my choice of tea.
All in all recommend for short duration stay of 2-3 days only
Such a wonderful hotel. The staff were incredible. I had a few issues with noise and was offered free breakfast in the morning. Such a cool vibrant atmosphere, the .coffee shop, bar and restaurant are amazing. the food is great! will be back for sure!
