“A great little hotel with parking!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

This was a great find. Parking is close by and free which is a real bonus as the streets are narrow and there is very little parking available directly outside the hotel.

The room was lovely with a big comfy bed, a lovely bathroom plus basic kitchen facilities.

It was very light and modern with the added addition of blackout blinds, a definite plus.

The owners were very friendly and very helpful.

Next time we go to Oxford, we'll definitely return to the Ethos Hotel. I believe they have a restaurant opening opposite too (it may have opened since our visit). That will be an added and very convenient bonus.

Very happy to have found Ethos Hotel. We stayed one night in March 2014. Needed to connect with two friends in Oxford and was very grateful for the use of a cell phone, which came with the room. Made it much easier to coordinate meeting with friends driving in than using my USA cell phone. Location is perfect. Easy walk to Christ Church. Breakfast basket generous. Very clean, modern, comfortable. Loved the kitchen area too. Would definitely recommend to a friend and would stay there again if we return. Thank you Ethos!

The streets around the hotel are narrow and congested, but the friendly welcoming receptionist directed us to nearby parking.

The room was modern and appeared either new or recently renovated, fresh clean and comfortable. Our room was on the ground floor and looked directly onto the street, but there were decent black out curtains so we weren't disturbed.

What surprised us most was the small kitchenette, very well equipped with cutlery, crockery, glassware and even a microwave and full size fridge.

I couldn't recall if breakfast was included when I booked so the well stocked breakfast basket including cereals, muffins, cereal bars and biscuits was a nice surprise, plus milk fruit juices and yoghurts in the fridge.

Only a couple of very minor negatives, the hair dryer in the bathroom didn't work and the kitchenette had some ants around which needs looking into.

Generally a very pleasant stay.

Stayed one night here and very impressed. Contemporary and in a perfect location to explore city. Rooms are very spacious, modern and comfortable. If you like boutique style hotels I would highly recommend. Loved the under floor heating in bathroom. Would definitely return.

I have spent a fair amount of time in Oxford, and have stayed in various accomodations during the last 6 years. Recently during term I had the opportunity to stay at the Ethos Hotel, a very short walk from Christ Church and the various shops on St. Aldates right off the Carfax Square. The room was cozy, clean, and very reasonably priced; on a quiet street. Lovely and attentive staff, who even took the time to return my phone charger to me. I am delighted to have found the Ethos as this will be my 'go to' accomodation on future trips.

Can honestly say this hotel is the best we have ever stayed at. We booked a 2 night weekend break for our wedding anniversary & from the moment of arrival & greeting from the door we had the very best of service, courtesy & care.


A big 'thank you' to all concerned for making our stay such a memorable one, and we will most definitely be back hopefully in the not too distant future.

I stayed with my wife and kids in this brand new appartment. It was clean, had great wifi and big tv in bedroom and livingroom. Nice staff. only 5 minutes away from city center. I can certainly recommend it to you. I will stay there again.
