A modern and well thought out place.
Great service from friendly staff. Food was great and the place was very busy. DJ playing all the right tunes as we ate.
The hotel rooms are modern and simple. A place to be if you are visiting London and want to be in the thick of it without being in the West End.
A trendy and unsnobby joint. Very well positioned in the heart of Shoreditch near all the bars, club and restaurants.
Though I have never managed to bag a £1 room here I have stayed here often enough to be able to vouch for this hotel's rave status.
As I live a few minutes walk away from the Hoxton Hotel you may wonder why I stay there????
It's like a mini holiday which I can afford to treat myself to every now and then. I check online and if they have a room offered at a good rate I book it, pack a few things and head off to enjoy the wonderful calm of the rooms, the friendly staff, the vibey communal areas etc.
Have also paid for both sets of in-laws to stay there and they were well and truly impressed.
Rooms are small-ish but funky and spotlessly clean. The prices are very reasonable for the great quality mattress, bedding and bathroom you'll enjoy,
Not surprised this hotel has such a cult following.
Short distance from old street tube station. Bars and clubs aplenty a short walk away. Nearby restaurants vary from Vietnamese to American Diner style to Italian to Sushi. The Hoxton has everything you could wish for from a trip to London close to hand.
Rooms aren’t huge but they are perfectly clean and very comfortable. The included breakfast of fruit juice, yoghurt and banana is ideal for the mornings you want to make a quick start and the downstairs Grill does a cracking sausage sandwich for the mornings when you want something more substantial.
The reception area also sells beers, wines, snacks etc at retail rather than 'Hotel’ prices for the nights when you fancy just sitting in front of the tv.
I certainly plan on staying at the Hoxton again on my next trip to London.
It seems those that paid £1 were very impressed with this hotel- myself included. I would strongly recommend this hotel to everyone, it is clean tidy, modern, comfortable and slick. I would happily pay more to stay here again. I enjoyed my pret breakfast in a bag in the morning- cereal and yogurt in a pot, a banana and some orange juice. The bed was really comfortable and when I say this place was clean, I actually mean immaculate!
Great location, 5 min from Old St tube,Brick Lane 10 min walk and three great Sunday markets within 15 min walk; Columbia Road, Brick Lane, Spitalfields.
Hotel rooms are really comfortable, breakfast is a good idea (yoghurt, banana & OJ) but would welcome a little more variation.
Didn’t feel inclined to drink or eat in the bar/restaurant as there’s plenty of cheaper and probably better options close by. Try Shoreditch High St for Vietnamese.
Would stay here again for £70/night but definately not £130.
Stayed here twice now and both times were great. The rooms are very well kept and have a sense of modernity with flat screen tv and 'lounge’ style decor. Even though we did not manage to grab the £1 bargains - the real, normal prices are very affordable for central London.
The main thing to note is the friendliness of the staff - for me this is top - if the staff are grumpy you will not feel very relaxed after all you are staying in their house… at The Hoxton the staff engender a sense of welcome and relaxation.
The bar area is certainly in Hoxton - huge gothic fireplaces with art installations throughout - lots of sofas and comfy seating - great for a nightcap or pre-dinner drinks.
We have heard nice things about the food here but have not eaten ourselves. We liked to take breakfast in nearby Curtain Road where you can find a choice of cool 'brekky’ venues.
My husband , daughter and i stayed here on two occasions over the Christmas/New Year period.
Our first stay was just before New Year for 2 nights, we arrived at Euston and connected easily on the Northern line to Old Street tube station.
The hotel is only around a 5 minute walk but with luggage it took a little longer but the directions on the website are great, exit 3 and straight along the road you come to the hotel.
Our room wasnt ready when we arrived so we had a drink and a snack in the bar, it was early afternoon. The service was great from the bar and the check in staff were helpful and friendly.
Our room was ready about an hour later but when we went up to it it wasnt actually ready…the maid was still cleaning it, so after a bit of a confusion we were moved t a room across the hallway.
The room was great, reasonable in size even with an extra bed for our daughter which had a really good matress too not like some extra beds we have encountered.The room was also potless and with a shining bathroom, always the first thing i check.
The room had good facilities, flatscreen tv, internet access, kettle, lovely fresh coffee sachets and a choice of teas, fresh milk in the fridge and 2 bottles of water. There was also a little handy map which showed bars, sights, restaurants etc in the surrounding area.
The bathroom was fab, really big, huge walk in shower with a rain effect head and one of those wand attachments, very invigorating!. The sink area was huge with a soap dish, something i always think hotels lack and get fed up with the soap sliding all over, so that was a nice touch along with the full size bar of pears, our daughter is now addicted to pears soap! There were also a couple of mini aveda items, shampoo and body wash which smell divine.
The bed we have to say is THE comfiest we have ever slept in in any hotel anywhere…we want that bed at home! The frette linen is lovely too as are the pillows and duvet…you have to sleep in it to believe it, we never wanted to get up and usually we are up early and out!.
The breakkie bag was sufficient and it was nice and relaxing just eating it when we wanted in our room, made the whole experience so much more relaxed than the usual hotels where you feel compelled to get up early for breakfast.
We would definately stay here again and in fact did so at the end of our New Year getaway
This has been one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. I never managed to get a £1 room which is AMAZING but the hotel was still reasonably priced for what it is. A lovely grand entrance, lobby, restaurant and bar with some great cocktails. The menu for the restaurant also looked lovely. Right in the heart of the Shoreditch scene with bars and clubs on your doorstep. There are often live bands playing in the hotel or in the case when we visited an after show party was held there for those that had been playing at that day’s Shoreditch festival!
The rooms were lovely and spacious, the bed with the frette linen and feather duvet had me in heaven! The bathroom was also off good size with a great large walk in shower. Great modern decor, wireless Internet and a wide screen TV that could be moved to provide a better view finished this great hotel off!
Fantastic Hotel to stay in I couldn’t praise it more.
It’s located not too far away from Liverpool street station, with a 15 min walk or a tube journey a few stops away to old street. The hotel is in a trendy part of town popular with the indie cindy’s and boys in skinny jeans.
There are some nice bars a short distance away or you can even enjoy a drink in the hotel bar.
The rooms are simple and stylish with a plaster mural of one of the views in London.
The beds are comfy and there is plenty of space to unfurl your things with a little sofa seat as well as a desk and flat screen tele in built.
The shower was great and warm with fun little signs telling you about using the towels and to take the soap home as a souvenir.
The fridge was stocked with a bottle of water and fresh milk.
Breakfast is served on a hook outside your door at a time of your choice. This is a simple piece of fruit, yogurt and oj.
Gorgeous hotel in a great location near the bars and clubs of Hoxton and Shroeditch. Great value for money (especially if you get a room for £1!) and I love the shop in the foyer, where the sell everything you might need at normal shop prices rather than the usual extortionate mini bar prices.
I managed to get a room in the famous £1 sale and it coincided with an event I was travelling down to London for anyway.
Despite it being located in a very unassuming area, I actually found this even more of an appealing feature; a nice, luxurious haven in a bustling part of London that is a little edgy.
The reception area looks modern, trendy and cool, and checkin was easy. I was located in a 2nd floor room and was able to find it easily, and I took my free broadsheet newspaper up with me.
The room is of a modest but not too small or cramped size. There is everything you need, and more, and the design makes maximum use of the space.
It is rare to find a room with a hairdryer so I was grateful to have one at my disposal as it saves a lot of room in my bag. There were various drinks, to be had as well as some milk and bottled water in the mini fridge.
The bathroom was gorgeous and I really appreciated the Aveda products and the soap which came home with me. The shower is powerful yet unlike some similarly powerful ones it’s not aggressive.
My favourite feature was the massive bed which was sinfully soft and comfortable and which I could barely manage to leave. The free Wifi was also very welcome.
The decor of the room was cool and tasteful and very relaxing. I did not make use of the bar but I did enjoy the free breakfast, which was worth more than the cost of the room; a little bag from Pret A Manger containing a banana, a pot of granola, fruit and yoghurt, and a bottle of fresh orange juice.
Overall, I would stay here again for certain and would even consider paying full price (or at least the £59 rooms). I aim to get myself another stay in their next “sale.” Fastest finger first!!
I first visited the Hoxton Hotel shortly after it opened when they had a £1 a night deal! That obviously was fantastic value, but even at full price this hotel is good value. I have since stayed there several times.
The rooms are a good size with very comfortable beds, lovely squishy duvets, a sofa, large tv and free wi-fi. The bathrooms are also a good size with a good powerful shower and large cubicle unlike some hotels. The bedroom and the bathroom are sparkling clean.
Another plus point for this hotel is the breakfast which is included - yoghurt, banana and orange juice all delivered to your room. There is also free milk and water in the fridge.
Downstairs although large feels comfy and cosy which may have something to do with the armchairs and the roaring log fire!
I have never eaten there but the restaurant looks nice and has not a bad menu.
I have always found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful and love my stays there.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Hoxton is quite a trendy place now and there are lots of bars and restaurants to choose from.
Managed to win one of their £1 rooms and wow, what a bargain!!
Gorgeous hotel. Very cool with a great entrance. The lobby has the check-in desk on one side and the Hoxton Grill (didn’t try but looked good) on the other, with some nice comfy seating in front of two roaring fires and their fabulous art pieces.
The room was brilliant, with a comfy bed, an LCD tv with movies, hair dryer, tea and coffee making facilites with fresh milk in the fridge and also bottled water. Lovely bathroom with a fab shower. And the fact that the Pret a Manger breakfast was included was great, and it was delicious!
All for a quid!!
The staff were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble and they were all so friendly!
This is a nice hotel that is nice, clean and modern. There is a nice bar area at the front of the reception which is beautifully decorated.
The main reason why I stayed at Hoxton was because it is affordable. The price was reasonably good, taking into accoutn the location of the hotel and the interior of the hotel itself.
They have free breakfast included which is really nice, and you dont have to worry about waking up in time for the breakfast, because you get it in a paper bag which is hung at your room door. very convenient indeed.
The rooms are uber chic and nicely decorated with cushions, a lounger and wide screen LCD Tv, with free wifi. The disadvantage is that we were allocated a room with no bath tub, so that was slightly disappointing, as I was looking to have a relaxing bath. Not sure if all other rooms in the hotel is without a bath tub.
Verdict: super clean and modern rooms at affordable prices. GO FOR IT!
I have booked this hotel through their £1 promotion!
For £1, you will get a a lovely double bedroom with LCD interactive tv that you can use to show your bill so far. Airconditioning system. A wet room style bathroom with a shower area. A small breakfast.
NCP parking close by will be discounted for you down to £21.00 for 24 hrs by asking the reception for a discount card.
The enterance is lovely. My favourite bit was the VW Golf, I won’t tell you about it, I will leave you to discover it yourself.
The staff were extremely friendly and chatty, in the evening and in the morning. The hotel feeling is vibrant, active and young.
The normal price for the room was between £9 and £199.
I would recommend this hotel to young couples and cool people, because only those will appreciate the accent of the hotel in terms of the informality and cool spirit of the hotel.
It’s trendy, yes, but it seems to lack a bit of a soul. The rooms are all nicely decorated, highly comfortable and full of little treats (especially the free morning breakfast from Pret) but the whole experience didn’t really give me a feeling this was a 'one off’ kind of place - it just seemed like another trendy hotel. Still, not bad value for central London.
My husband’s company needed him in London for a week and booked him into the Hoxton. It’s a short walk from the Old Street Tube and is in the trendy Hoxton/Shoreditch area of east London.
The lobby has a seating area on one side filled with couches and a bar on the other side with more comfy seating. There is a restaurant towards the back, The Hoxton Grille, which serves decent food.
The staff are amazingly friendly, they are very helpful and the desk has all sorts of items for sale that one may want at stupid o’clock.
The room (a double) was a very decent size and had a desk and couch. There is a refridgerator that stocks milk and water for drinking/making tea or coffee) and you get a complimentary Pret a Manger breakfast if you don’t want to eat in the restaurant.
The bathroom was amazing! The shower was great. The whole room was comfortable, sleek and modern. There is a wide screen TV and computer access.
We ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and the food was decent (though not 100% wonderful-the breakfast was a bit ho-hum).
I would gladly stay here again, and would recommend it to any people looking for a nice modern hotel in London!
My boyfriend and I have been here twice now; once with the £1 room deal and once with the £29 room deal. IT is incredible value if you can get this deal. The rooms are very comfortable with great facilities. You get tea and coffee, real milk, bottled water and a prêt breakfast all for the price of the room. The bathrooms are lovely and I really love the amazing shower! Room service is very good, we ordered some chocolate torte which was lovely. This is a total bargain if you can get a cheap room. Plus there are some really good bars and restaurants nearby.
I’ve been lucky enough to bag a £1 room a few times at this hotel, but it’s a bargain even if you’re paying quite a bit more than that. Despite its trendy decor, I didn’t feel too out of place. The rooms are modern and comfortable, with fabulous beds and a massive, powerful shower. There are also lots of little extras that you wouldn’t expect for the price: Aveda toiletries and Pears soap in the bathroom, fresh milk in the fridge, coffee bags rather than instant, free wi-fi in the rooms and free PCs in the foyer. If you like peace and quiet, ask for a quiet room to avoid getting one overlooking the busy road at the front, or the courtyard at the back where the smokers gather of an evening.
The area is perhaps a little down at heel and not very close to the main sights, but it is easily accessible from Old St tube station, and the hotel is within walking distance of some good restaurants - you get a handy guide in your room to local eating and drinking places. You can also make the trek to Brick Lane for a curry - have an extra poppadom to provide sustenance for the walk back!
One the subject of food, the hotel’s restaurant loses it a star in my opinion. We’ve only ever tried it for breakfast, but have had a long wait each time. One time we actually gave up waiting and left after the waitress consistently avoided catching our eyes. The food is good when it arrives though!
If you get the chance of a cheap night here, then take it - and consider it even if you can’t get it at a bargain price!
