The Hoxton Hotel Review
The design throughout this trendy East London lodging is contemporary—but not so modern as to be absurd—and in keeping with a claim to combine a country-lodge lifestyle with true urban living, a fire crackles in the lobby. The chic but casual restaurant is packed with friendly youth; the comfortable guest rooms have Frette linen sheets and down comforters; the bar is popular with local office workers; and the Hoxton Grill combines American steak-house style with French bistro chic. Best of all is London's best hotel deal, hands down: every night five rooms are priced at just £1.
This uber-trendy, terrific-value hideaway in the heart of east London mixes industrial chic with a dash of tradition. The public areas are like the lovechild of a factory and living room: steel pillars and sheet glass form the backdrop to cozy nooks of antique brick, warmed by open fireplaces. The 208 bedrooms have nifty design flourishes, such as pinstripe carpets and throw pillows emblazoned with clever print-screened motifs (they're also for sale, should you fancy a memento). In the morning, an on-the-go breakfast bag of fruit, yogurt and juice is left discreetly outside your door. Sweetening the deal, subscribers to the free Hox Fan Club get advance notice of what may be London's best hotel bargain: Hotel rooms for the lowly sum of just £1.
