The bright lobby has an industrial theme with a heavy emphasis on exposed brickwork, authentic fireplaces and classic marble flooring. This is a great place to gather and chat or just watch the world go by. The bar is adjacent to the lobby and serves a wide variety of cool cocktails to kick off a great night out!
A modern, purpose built hotel.
The medium sized contemporary styled rooms are in excellent condition and have been thoughtfully designed with the discerning traveller in mind. Frette linen and flat screen TV's set the tone with sumptuous duck down duvets and free WI-FI completing the Hoxton effect. Bathrooms are equipped with a large walk in shower and classic styling.
The restaurant, located on the ground floor is fast becoming an attraction within its own right. Serving a wide variety of both classic and contemporary cuisine this is one of the best places to eat in East London.

We chose this hotel because it is in a good location for shows etc. They've thought of everything. Plasma TV, good coffee, fresh milk in fridge. Even mineral water. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I have slept in with wonderful crisp clean egyptian cotten linen and duck down duvet. Everything was shiny clean and the shower was really powerful. All the staff were welcoming and went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. I can't rate this hotel highly enough. We ate at the grille and although it is run seperately, we received the same friendly service. The meal was great and as it was a Friday night, there was a DJ and a very buzzy atmosphere. I can't wait to stay here again.

I Loved the lobby of the Hotel with the open fires and great leather sofa's the staff were friendly, and the whole Hotel had a very laid back feel to it, the rooms were smaller that I thought they would be, but they were fine for an overnight stay very comfortable and the shower room was amazing.
I have already recomemnded the hotel to friends and when I return to London will definately book the Hoxton again as the location was great only 2 stops from Kings Cross!

Excellent! What a refreshing change to have your expectations excelled. The service was fabulous, nothing was too much trouble. They even searched to find where the restaurant was we had booked into that evening, showed us a map & ordered us a cab.
The room was spacious enough, the bed was larger than a standard double and I didn't want to get out of it as it was sooo comfortable, had lovely large cushions too.
The room & bathroom were both spotlessly clean. Locations is a bonus too, nearest stop is old street, only 2 stops from Leicester Square. No complaints, spot on! We will be going back again.

We had a good stay here. Admittedly we weren't here for long, as we only used it to crash after a late night out, but it was great. Rooms were modern, extremely clean, and excellent value for money with the deal we got on Hotels Click. Bathroom was great, with White Company goodies, and a huge shower head which helped the hangover a lot. It was also extremely well sound-proofed. I couldn't believe that I was staying in the centre of London, as I didn't even hear traffic noise.
The staff on the desk were friendly and efficient. Breakfasts were also good.
I would definitely use this hotel again, seeing as you can get a room for the same price as a Travelodge!

Had a lovely stay in the Hoxton in March 2007. The rooms are very well laid out and have the most comfortable beds and an absolutely brilliant shower. Reception staff were consistently friendly and helpful and it's quite a 'buzzy' place to stay as the Grille restaurant and bar have a lovely atmosphere in the evening time. Young and trendy with all mod cons. Breakfast is unusual in that a brown bag is placed outside the bedroom door each morning (at your requetsed time) containing OJ, a banana and a yogurt. Free tea and coffee and fresh milk and water in the fridge. Absolutely brilliant as there's no need to wake up early and hit the breakfast room!! Will definitely be back.
V. Good: 4.1/5Victoria - Ingatestone, UNITED KINGDOM - 03/13/2007
Really liked this hotel. The room was quite small but perfectly formed. Whilst there wasn't a bath there was a fabulous shower and the bathroom (as with all the fittings) was immaculate, trendy and clean. A beautiful hotel only a five minute walk from Hoxton square where we were going out for a friends birthday. I strongly recommend this hotel and if we go to that area again I shall book in again.

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and have been very satified each time, the staff are very helpful and friendly, the rooms are clean and tidy, lovely 'fluffy' towels, comfy beds, would stay there again.
