Reviewed 28 December 2013

My wife found this hotel when I had to work nearby earlier in the year. I am so glad she did. We've been there a couple of times now and will definitely be back. The rooms are smaller than we are used to but good for London. We love the feel of the hotel and the staff are always helpful. The Old Street tube station is a couple of minutes walk away which makes getting out and seeing the sites nice and easy. The bar area downstairs is always lively and it gets very busy of an evening. It's a great place to unwind after spending hours walking around the city.
If you're looking for a clean, modern place to stay with some unique character then this is the place. Book nice and early and you can't beat it for price either.

Room Tip: Higher rooms at the back avoid the noise from the bar area.

We stayed at the Hoxton for one night in December. We were thoroughly impressed with everything - the vibrant bar/ restaurant was reasonably priced and had a great atmosphere; the room was contemporary with the comfiest bed we've ever slept in; the staff friendly and helpful and the location convenient for East London and the city. We would recommend the Hoxton to anyone looking for something a bit different in the heart or London- hoping to stay again soon...
A minimal breakfast is included, so eat in the restaurant or the nearby 'breakfast club' for a more substantial breakfast!

Room Tip: Ask for a non street facing room to guarantee a quiet nights sleep

This Hotel doesn't meet the normal London expectation in regards to old fashioned, worn out beds etc. It's a totally modern hotel with good comfy beds, nice bathroom and a great lobby / lounge / restaurant area - which seems to be the place to be these days - was busy on every night we stayed there! Location is also good - only a few mins walk from the next tube station. Staff at the reception is really friendly and very helpful! Only slight downside was, the female staff at the restaurant - who seemed in a bad mood and forgetful, but the food was excellent :-)

Thank you for taking the time to share the love, we're really sorry about the reception staff they are normally so efficient. Great to hear that you enjoyed the decor, location and food. We hope you tried the burger! If not you'll just have to come again soon...

we stayed here at the weekend for our nephews wedding. The reviews did help me choose, and they were not wrong. Checked in on Friday night at about 10.30pm and the joint was jumping! The bar and grill were packed, so I asked for a quit room ! Filipe (great chap) sent us up to the 6th floor, but the bass was still booming up there! Back to Filipe and he sent us to a room om the other side of the hotel on the 3rd floor, perfect.The only things wrong in the room was the long flush on the loo didn't work! and why oh why do they not have HD channels on the TV? Also we tried watching BBC4 and it was nearly impossible! I have better reception in Devon!
Nice breakfast in the morning, fast efficient service from the friendly waitress. Delicious food , great coffee!
If we have to stay in Shoreditch again....it will be at The Hox!!

Thank you for the feedback, great to hear praise for the fabulous Filipe - sorry about the toilet situation and TV channels - we shall definitely look into the problem. Great to hear that you'd come back and enjoyed the food. Thanks again.

The Hoxton has everything a hotel should have; Free Breakfast, Free Wifi (that *actually* works), a place to iron clothes and a clean/quiet room with a big bed. Where this hotel excels is its sassiness, from "Stupid Sign #5" to the rock/paper/scissors pillows you could spend easily an hour amused at the little jokes planted throughout the room.

The only downside to this hotel is that the lobby/bar are always packed. With good reason, the drinks are good and the food is tasty....you just have to wait in long lines to get some.

Room Tip: Get a higher floor, the noise from the bar/restaurant can be bothersome

An excellent place to stay particularly if you appreciate good design. Very well run with attention to detail. Close to the underground with a bus stop outside - Boris bike stand nearby as well.
Very busy bar downstairs at night with good music. Excellent breakfast. Nice staff.

Room Tip: Ask for south facing rooms to see the Shard

I've been before a few times & on every visit the staff have been helpful & polite.
It has clean & comfortable beds but my favourite part of the room would be the shower!

Saying that the only problem I had was the fact that my room seemed to be above the bar & as it's the festive season I was made to hear 'Fairy Tale of New York' on several occasions which kind of sucked the romance out of the room. It wasn't a deal breaker but if you're someone looking for a quiet nights sleep ask for a room further away from the bar & restaurant.

Thanks for having me again, Hoxton Hotel!

Room Tip: If you don't want to hear the Hoxton nightlife ask for a room away from the bar & restaurant...

Great to hear you like getting a good drenching in our showers - they are quite something right? Thanks for taking the feedback, sorry about the noise and Fairytale of New York?! We'll certainly be looking into who was playing that...
