The Hoxton hotel, London

Exterior of the Hoxton Hotel, London

I love to travel, of course, but hate actually travelling so nothing feels more unnecessarily, extravagantly brilliant than a staycation, especially when London is your hometown. Last weekend, for CT’s birthday, we took a short Overground ride to unfamiliar Shoreditch and felt like we’d ventured to another city entirely. The freshly-falling snow only added to our little game.

We stayed at the Hoxton hotel, which you’ve probably heard of for it’s famous £1 room sales (edit: these sales are now defunct, sorry!). One of London’s coolest hotels, the reception/bar area was buzzing with both locals and out-of-towners when we checked-in. It’s popularity isn’t surprising really: the hotel boasts live gigs and DJs, an art gallery, free yoga classes, ping pong tables, a retro photobooth, and a whole host of other fun things to do.

Décor is modern and industrial with brilliant attention to detail. Our carpet doubled as a map of the local area while the headboard was an illustration of the well-known 24/7 bagel shop situated round the corner. Rooms are compact but stylish, comfortable and excellent value for money. The earlier in advance you book the cheaper it is and prices start at a very reasonable £69 (which includes free wifi and a healthy breakfast bag). We’re already trying to think of an excuse for a return visit.

Disclosure: we were guests of the Hoxton but, as always, all opinions are honest.

    Looks fab. Have signed up for updates. My daughter works in Shoreditch at Paper Mache Tiger Building. We spent sometime on our last visit in shoreditch, so now we know where to stay! Thanks Becky.

    Oh wow how lucky! I never get contacted by hotels. LOVE the Décor. I have signed up just in-case they have another £1 sale :) x

    Ahh, £1 rooms? That’s incredible. Great photos..I’m really loving them! I’ve been wanting to explore Shoreditch. I was walking around briefly a few days ago but I still have yet to have a free day where I can just go and do anything.
