199–206 High Holborn, London, WC1V 7BD

Welcome to The Hoxton, Holborn. It’s great to have you in the house and we hope that you enjoy your stay with us whatever the reason for your visit.

To make sure you get the most out of your trip, we’ve put together this little Survival Guide containing all kinds of bits and bobs that you might need. From getting around town to getting those creases out of your dinner shirt. It’s all here, laid out nice and easy for your scrolling pleasure.

We want you to have the best stay possible, so if you need anything day or night, just dial 0 on the phone next to your bed.

Us and our neighbourhood

Once upon a time, this very building we occupy was the factory of George Kent, who made meters and gauges for a whole host of clever appliances. Once he moved out, BT moved in and this Grade II listed building was instrumental to the telephone exchange that ran along Kingsway, High Holborn and Chancery Lane. Today, the building still hums, only now, it’s with the locals and guests who swing by for coffee and cocktails, to meet friends, to park up with a laptop, or to stay the night.

We’re a stone’s throw from Covent Garden, Oxford Street, Bloomsbury and Farringdon, and with the Piccadilly line just down the road, you can get anywhere, anytime. We’re right in the heart of Midtown, as the locals now call it, which has plenty of bars and restaurants to check out, hidden green spaces to get lost in, and shops to go wild for.

The Little Breakfast

As they say, it’s the most important meal of the day! We deliver a daily breakfast bag with juice, fruit and a breakfast item to your room for just £4 per person. All you have to do is fill out the bag, pop it on the hook outside your room, and it will be waiting for you in the morning with a little something to help you start your day off right.

For something bigger, check out Rondo in the lobby or order Room Service in.

Hox Shop

Swing by our Hox Shop in the lobby where you can buy snacks and drinks at supermarket prices; Blank body products; or something from our Best Of collection, with limited-edition items by our fave London makers. Run out of room in your luggage? Ask us to send it to you.

Rip-off- free fridge

No nasty bills at check-out here, we give you a rip-off-free mini-fridge stocked with fresh milk and water. What’s more, you can fill your fridge with savoury and sweet snacks from our Hox Shop at supermarket prices.

Quick Tips

Holborn Station is a 1 minute walk away. Come out of the main hotel doors and turn right. You’ll be on the Central or Piccadilly line in minutes. If you’re after a bus, there are loads of them all over the place. The closest are on High Holborn. The number 98 will get you to Marble Arch and Oxford Street, number 59 will get you to Trafalgar Square and number 243 will take you to Shoreditch.

You can flag a London Cab outside our hotel, or ask front desk to call you a car from a local company.

There are a few Brompton x Hox folding bikes available for you to use for free during your stay. Or loan a bike for free from the Brompton Hire Units across the city – free for 3 days for all Hox guests. Just ask at Reception and they’ll give you the lowdown.

There are also multiple pay-as-you-go bikes available across the city — they’re super easy to use and you can’t beat the convenience of bobbing around town on wheels.

Housekeeping is currently on request, so you know who has been in your room, and when.

Unless otherwise asked bed linens are changed every 3 days during a stay, and towels are replaced only if on the floor. Doing what we can (one towel, or sheet) at a time.

Got a status you just have to update, then log onto our free Wi-Fi and watch those likes rack up. Or if you prefer the phone, make use of one hour of phone calls to pretty much anywhere, except the moon.

Read all about it! You can find local news, magazines and podcasts on this link to make sure you’re up to date on what’s going on in the world. Just make sure you are connected to the guest wifi to access.
