The Lowdown on London Town
Considering that this place was cheaper than what it would’ve cost us to stay at a Premier Inn, we got somewhere infinitely cooler. Although you’d maybe think that the hotel in Hoxton would be a small boutique affair, this area is too much of a destination for that. With stripped brickwork, a gallery display from Pure Evil, macs with giant monitors for folks to use, a cool Bombay Gin, ice cream selling beer garden, an old school passport photo booth, and books and records lying about next to the lifts on each floor, it’s boutique chic but on an affordable, grand scale.
Rooms are pretty straightforward, they could’ve had more tea (always a gripe with me) but I had a coffee bag (coffee in a tea bag) and it was definitely not my last. You get a free ‘breakfast’ which consists of banana, greek yoghurt and fruit compote, and a bottle of fresh orange. You can buy a fry up, but this is a cool/cheaper/healthier option, or at worst enough to tide you over until you find a proper breakfast elsewhere, more on that in a bit…
The rooms were quiet, beds comfy and the shower was top notch; a good long shower before a hearty cooked breakfast is my favourite way to begin the day on holiday.
All in all, good place, good price, good location.More
