Famous for its low rates, the Hoxton deserves credit for many other things. First, there’s the hip Shoreditch location – hip enough for Soho House to have taken over the downstairs bar-brasserie a few years ago.

Then there are the great design values. Finally, the rooms are well thought out, if mostly rather small, with lots of nice touches – free fresh milk in the fridges, a cold snack for breakfast, free Wi-Fi. Nowadays, there are even some individually designed suites – at the same price as the other rooms, but first-come, first-served.

The downside? Popularity. If you don’t book well in advance and plan to visit during the week rather than at the weekend, you could pay as much as at one of the big chains. A major refurbishment has opened out the original bar and added another, as well as putting red leather booths in the lobby; a new coffee bar is on the way. And the Hoxton finally has a sibling: the Hoxton Holborn.

The Hoxton Hotel is a bona fide party central. It’s part of a mini-hotel chain, yes (there’s another one in Holborn and an international outpost in Amsterdam), but it’s amazing how many non-guests flock here any given night. The spacious lobby is nicely arranged into zones, and you can spend a full day, morning to night here, moving from one zone to another - have brunch at the cafe area upfront, lounge around in one of their red leather booths, dine in the Hoxton Grill restaurant at the back come evening, then drink yourself silly at one of the bar areas and dance to DJ music (they set up a DJ deck across from the bar). Curiously, as some people are getting wasted at the bar, you can still find people working away at their laptops completely undisturbed in some of the nooks and crannies of the lobby (which speaks volumes about the design of the space). I was here most recently on a Friday night as my friend threw a big birthday bash for 70 people at their function rooms - The Apartment (it comes with a serviced bar and an adjacent dance room, where we had a DJ deck set up). There’s also a 1950’s red fridge. Simply adorable! Generally speaking, modern furnishings with retro touches is the theme here. I can’t really say anything about the hotel rooms, but my friend and some of the guests of the party stayed overnight and seemed to like them, albeit the rooms being on the smaller side.

The Hoxton Hotel is an undeniable piece of the fabric that holds Shoreditch together, a hub of co-working euphoria is found within their recently refurbished foyer. As the evening progresses the foyer turns from co-working to cohabiting couples out for an evening cocktail.  The bedrooms are stylish and compact, available from an amazingly low £100 pounds a night. The hotels restaurant the Hoxton Grill is always reliable for good food and service.

Really enjoyed working here the other day. With free wifi and  a great atmosphere, it's a great place to meet people, socialise and get work done. I've been to a few exercise events, Benefit workshops and sample sales here as well and I think it has the best of everything. Definitely want to stay here at some point too!! :)

I stayed here a few years ago but have been to the bar, restaurant and other event spaces several times since. This hotel has a great buzz, there's always something going on. There are workshops, tastings, screenings, exhibitions, sample sales ... - you name it! 

The hotel has great room sales and is definitely a reasonably prices placed to stay in such a great area.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a weekend recently and now wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in London! Cracking hotel - rooms fairly small as is usual in London but really nice decor etc; staff really friendly and helpful; bar and restaurant very cool with a great, laid-back vibe going on. We loved the location as it is easy to travel to the City (less than 5 min walk to tube) and is also within easy walking distance of a plethora of great bars and restaurants, as well as exciting boutique / vintage shopping opportunities. Can't wait to go again!
