Us and our neighbourhood

Welcome to The Hoxton, Southwark, the third Hoxton in our hometown of London – in the city where it all began. This London borough is known for its colourful history. Right here is where famous London pub The Prince Albert once stood. Patrons would bet on sport from their barstools, handing over fistfuls of cash to the pub’s very own licensed bookie!

During the 17th and 18th Century, factories and warehouses popped up all along the riverbank. These days, many of them have been converted into galleries, bars and restaurants in and around nearby Borough Market. When you’re done feasting and guzzling, go for a stroll along the Thames, open your mind to some modern art, or catch a play in one of London’s oldest theatres. The South Bank has it all.

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, 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 Albie 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 or order it online and get it delivered wherever you want (UK only). 

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’re a stone’s throw away from many of the city’s public transport hubs. The closest station is Blackfriars which will get you across the river and deeper into the city. The team at Reception are happy to point you in the right direction.

Black cabs can be hailed from outside our doors or ask Reception to help you out. Uber is also widely used here.

There are a few Hox x Brompton Bikes available for you to use for free during your stay. Just ask at Reception and they’ll give you the lowdown.

They are limited, so why not hop on a Brompton Hire bike (free for 3 days for guests) or a Boris bike? They’re simple to use and all around town – you can’t beat the convenience of bobbing around town on wheels.

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

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.

It goes without saying, WiFi is free for all guests at The Hox. And if you’d like to make a good ole’ fashioned landline call, your first hour is free per day 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.

Dial 0 for Reception and we’ll bring an ice bucket right up.

Want something printed? Just email your document to and we’ll take care of the rest.

Whether you’re looking to go hard on the treadmill or relax into a yoga class, we have a few local partners to choose from, just ask at reception to buy a day pass.
