The Hoxton, Holburn : Hotel Review

Last week I had the privilege of staying at The Hoxton, a hipster boutique hotel with chains across Europe. If you follow any blogger or YouTuber on Instagram you’ve probably seen this place pop up with its cool interiors, fancy coffees and cosy beds. I’ve wanted to stay at one of their hotels for ages and as I had a trip to London planned to watch Holst: The Planets ( blog post to come) it was the perfect opportunity.


We stayed in the cosy room which was the second biggest and it still wasn’t MASSIVE if I’m honest. The interiors made up for this though, which were superb. The walls were lined with a really cool wallpaper and an amazing, large, round mirror. The room had a little seating area with the most gorgeous side tables which I really want to replicate in my living room at home! The rooms have a TV, radio and desk area for all your needs. It was fully stocked with tea, coffee, water and milk as well- bonus. The bathroom was spacious and modern with the most amazing over head shower- I never wanted to leave it. We both slept so so well as the rooms were so dark and quiet and the bedding was very luxorious. I love the cushions and I really want to recreate this at home. 




The hotel has 2 restaurants and one coffee shop attached to it, so plenty of option. The lobby was always packed with people working away on their laptops, hipsters snapping their matcha lattes and businessmen with their morning espressos. It was always such a good atmosphere and at night it turned into a buzzy pub with a DJ. We had a drink in the bar in the evening and they had plenty of choices- I went for prosecco (reasonably priced!)and Jake went for Camden Pale Ale. (ignore the poor iPhone shot!) In the morning, every room gets a breakfast bag complete with granola, yoghurt, orange juice and a banana. It was the perfect little bed picnic for the morning and It was a really nice touch. We were still hungry so we went to the restaurant downstairs for some food: Hubbard and Bell. I got poached eggs and smoked salmon on toast and Jake had steak and eggs. Although the food was lovely, it was very overpriced and I think we will be trying somewhere else next time!

Overall, I really enjoyed my stay here. I found the attention to detail was really impressive. The apothecary style cabinets, the old Penguin books, the Pen and Ink soap- it all added up to a really nice experience. I would definitely stay here again, maybe for a birthday or special occasion. The location, for me, was perfect. Right near Covent garden and all the theatres (my favourite part of London- I feel I belong there). The staff at the reception were so kind but the service in the restaurant wasn’t great- it shouldn’t take 20 mins to get some milk? It’s made me really want to redecorate my room and it was one of the most aesthetically pleasing places I’ve been to. Thank you so much to the Hoxton for having me, I can’t wait to return!

    It looks lovely! It’s so hard to find the balance between a good location and a nice interior – this place seems perfect.
