Let me begin by saying that three free amenities offered by the Hoxton were the reason I booked; free WiFi, complimentary light breakfast (orange juice, yogurt and banana) and one hour of free calls including international calls to the U.S. The amenities coupled with the excellent nightly rate set the hotel apart before my arrival. Upon my arrival I could not have been happier with my selection. Check In was quick and easy despite my arriving hours before the stated check in time. The rooms are well appointed, clean and a decent size when considering hotels throughout London.
I rarely called on the services of the staff but when I did they were cheerful, knowledgable and responded quickly to any requests.
The bar and restaurant are a great spot to grab a drink or a bite and based on the crowds even during the week, it is a well known hot spot. The area is more on the artistic side than a business district but I always felt comfortable and it was nice to enjoy a little variety after meetings in the city all day.
The hotel is located just a short walk from the Old Street station which made jumping on the Northern Line to the Bank station a short and easy trip. It was also just as easy to walk to any number of local spots within 10-15 minutes. All in all a great location.
My only complaint had to be the pillows. The bed itself was quite comfortable but the pillows were lacking for my taste. In the interest of full disclosure, I rarely find a hotels pillows suitable.
