Stayed in March 2017 as a couple in the 'best - modern city executive suite' for 2 nights.This was the only room they had left and, with breakfast and some cancellation flexibility, it cost £448. We found central hotels in Oxford expensive and busy. The Ethos hotel website gave me the impression I would be staying in a boutique hotel...

Picked the hotel because of its location (within walking distance of Oxford city center) and it had a pretty decent score of 4.2/5.0 on the website I used to book it. The staff we spoke to were extremely friendly and helpful throughout the whole stay. The room was nice, but.... I had payed more than I would usually and booked...

Stayed in Ethos hotel in March 2017. Received by a very nice staff. Got a glass of champagne as a complimentary service. Nice and clean room. Very good breakfast. I am very satisfied with this hotel as to service, food and price.

A little unsure on approach, but this unconventional hotel turned out to be perfect for my needs. I'd pre-booked the parking and the dinner deal (I'm pinching the pizza topping idea I chose - delicious) so all smooth on arrival. I didn't set foot in reception, booking in with the helpful chap in the cafe and my room opening straight...

The rooms at Ethos were modern and clean. The hotel is on a quiet street about a 20 minute walk from the centre of Oxford. Our room had a microwave and fridge, so if you wanted to have light snacks there is space.

We had an amazing stay at the Ethos Hotel in February, the staff can't do enough for you and our room was very modern and clean. The breakfast and pizza served at the cafe onsite are yummy. I highly recommend it.

We spend 1 night in Oxford with my family and decided on Ethos based on prices. The hotel is new and very well kept. Clean ample rooms with wifi and tv. The bed is really comfy and the location is ideal, not in the city centre but really close by foot or quick cab ride. The only downside of our...

Booked for my wife and me for a weekend to explore Oxford. The Ethos is located in a fairly quiet residential area to the south of the city centre about 10 minutes walk from all the centre attractions and as such the location is very good. Whilst it was not cheap (£384 for three nights, *not* including breakfast) it was...

In a quiet residential area, only 10 min. walk from the city centre. Breakfast/restaurant on one side of the street, rooms on the other. Not your standard hotel layout but perfectly adequate for a couple of nights for business. Rooms were clean and tidy. Would come back.
