Welcome to The Hoxton, Shepherd’s Bush. We’re so pleased you’re here and hope you have fun exploring all the gems in our neighbourhood and beyond.

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

We’re pleased to call Shepherd’s Bush our home. One of our favourite corners of London, here you’ve got it all, with excellent amenities and famous entertainment venues in easy walking distance, as well as a more local way of life to dip in and out of.

Shepherd’s Bush is an eclectic neighbourhood in the London Borough of Hammersmith. It plays host to a wide range of nationalities and is a great place to enjoy a slice of bustling west London life, no more so than at Shepherd’s Bush Market where you can buy pretty much anything you can think of, from three-piece suits to vegetables and colourful fabrics. This is an area that loves to evolve but it has always had strong ties to the entertainment industry, with world-class music venues such as the Shepherd’s Bush Empire (where David Bowie, Elton John and The Rolling Stones have played, among others) and the old school Bush Hall right on your doorstep, along with the best comedy, satire and West End transfer shows of the day on offer at the Bush Theatre.

After all that culture, you’ll be pleased to know that there are plenty of places to refuel – restaurants like Le Petit Citron for classic french cuisine, Mr Falafel for local street food lunch vibes, and Osman Juice Bar for a healthy morning vitamin hit.

For late-night drinking, head on over to Next Door Records where you’ll find DJ’s spinning tunes until late, or The Hawk’s Nest for bangin’ cocktails. If you’re looking to splash some cash during your stay then there’s no better place than the iconic streets of Portobello market. Make stops at the record shop Rough Trade West, champion emerging & independent brands at Couverture & The Garbstore, vintage shopping at Found And Vision, and follow your nose to cult bakery Buns From Home.

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 a bit heartier, check out Chet’s in the lobby.
