81 Great Eastern St, London, EC2A 3HU

Welcome to The Hoxton, Shoreditch. 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 reading pleasure.

We want you to have the best stay possible, so anything you need day or night just call Reception on the dog and bone next to your bed.

Us and our neighbourhood

Once upon a time, this, right here was a car park. The Hoxton, Shoreditch is now a firm fixture on the East London scene, and just like the neighbourhood, we’ve evolved too, from the ground floor up. We bring the party vibes in our lobby on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings with Djs til’ late. So start your night off right, before you explore what East London has to offer.

As for what’s around us? Back when we opened our doors in 2006, this wasn’t all here. What were once industrial buildings are now covetable flats and creative office spaces. Now, Shoreditch has fast become one of the most happening neighbourhoods in London.

There’s never a dull moment round here, with plenty to see and do. Potter the stores of Redchurch Street, stroll through Spitalfields, soak up culture at the local museums and galleries. On Sunday, join the locals buying blooms on Columbia Road. Want to be more central? Oxford Circus is just a hop, skip and a jump away.

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 £5 per person. All you have to do is fill out the bag on the desk, 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 Hoxton Grill 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, as well as Sex Brand’s line of ethical products. 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

We have two Hox x Brompton bikes that you can use for free during your stay. The team at Reception will give you the lowdown. They are limited, so why not hop on a Brompton Hire bike (free for 3 days for guests & nearby in Broadgate Circle) or a Boris bike? They’re simple to use and all around town!

We offer housekeeping only on request but if you want a daily tidy up just ask and we will wave the magic wand.
