“Welcome back ma'am - here's the worst room in the house”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013

I've stayed here plenty of times and the chap on reception welcomed me back, and then proceeded to allocate what must have been the worst room in the hotel to me. Immediately above the restaurant - the music went on until the early hours and then started back up for breakfast at 6am. Not that it mattered, because I'd already been awake for an hour by then. Interestingly, the hotel have put a wooden floor in the rooms and then provided a chair with metal legs for people to scrape across the floor. It sounded like a school assembly was starting. Ridiculous. Won't be staying here again.

Stepped off a busy, rainy east London street into a laid back Sunday afternoon. Great coffee, atmosphere, rooms and staff. Perfect place to explore from, meet for a glass of wine, talk business or just chill with friends.

I recently spent one night at Hoxton Hotel and also had dinner there. I really enjoyed my time with them, the room is well-appointed but they've cut down on the nonsense so no little biscuits on the tea tray etc. It's very stylishly decorated too and the bed was very comfortable. My only quibble about the room was that it was overlooked but there was no way of cutting down the view without drawing the dark curtains totally.

The steak I had for dinner was just right, the service was good and then, just before I left, I was able to sit in a leather armchair by a roaring fire (ok, gas-powered I think, but still a fire) having a coffee.

So stylish, comfortable, friendly, unpretentious. Busy, yes. But good value for money in London certainly.

First time visit - enjoyed it immensely. Great staff - made us feel at home and think that would go for everyone - it's not just for the young and trendy, in fact, probably one of the most welcoming hotels we have stayed at. Reminded me very much of Swedish hotels : bit off the wall but in a comfy, cosy kind of way with dark wood, big sofas, open fires and twinkly lights. Would imagine its great at any time of year, but this hotel really suits Christmas! Slept really well, rooms fabulously "non-magnolia". Spotlessly clean, great food. Give it a try !

Room Tip: Hoxton cabin is great for couples

Beautiful bar and lovely service from the hotel, restaurant and bar staff. Really comfy room too. When the bar queue was too busy for our tired 45 year old minds at 1am, the bar staff kindly agreed to give us table service. Perfect.

This hotel has been recently refurbished to a very high standard. It is modern and yet retro.
The rooms are very comfortable, well furnished and with a wonderful shower in the bathroom.

Free wifi. Helpful staff. Good rooms with very comfortable beds. Quiet rooms with triple glazing.

Unfortunately the hotel is a victim of its own success. We visited just before Christmas and the bar/restaurant was really really busy. But not in a bad way. Just a little noisy.

The room however was quiet as we were in the new part of the hotel with triple glazing.

Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel, not just for the room but for the helpful unfussy staff who lack the horrible pretentiousness found at some other London hotels.

Why thank you, it's great to hear that our guests are loving the refurb - we're pretty pleased with it too! Yes the restaurant and bar do get very busy, there's just not enough of us to go around ;-) You might like to know that we have a second Hoxton Hotel opening in London next year, right in the heart of Holborn.

Hope to see you in the 'hood again real soon!
