Our Story

The Hoxton is a series of open-house hotels inspired by the diversity and originality of the streets and scenes that surrounds us.

How We Got Here

Just like our doors, our minds are open too. We turn empty car parks into hotels, reimagine old buildings that have interesting stories, and breathe fresh life into new ones.

The Hoxton, Shoreditch

Where it all began, in London’s East End back in 2006 when we turned a car park into our first hotel.

April 2022

The Hoxton, Poblenou

We opened in Poblenou, a creative corner of Barcelona in spring 2022, with our first rooftop pool in Europe (poolside tacos anyone?) and introduced our new ‘Homey’ room category, complete with kitchenettes that are great for longer stays and families.

What makes a Hoxton?

Open House

Our lobbies are the beating heart of our hotels. Open round the clock, with comfy seats, cosy corners, and food and drink on tap, they’re spaces where guests can hang out alongside the locals, and immerse themselves in the neighbourhood.

Local Favourites

We know some of the best moments need the best food and drink. From rooftop taquerias and panoramic seafood restaurants to discrete cocktail bars and speakeasys, our bars and restaurants are neighbourhood favourites.

Thoughtful Design

All our bedrooms, public spaces and restaurants are designed to feel vibrant, cosy and welcoming – like a home away from home. Our in-house design team takes inspiration from our neighbourhoods right the way through the design process, and work closely with local artists and makers to add flair to each property. 


Cultural Partnerships

We’ve always been big on local. From the artwork in our lobbies, to the wallpaper and furnishings in our bedrooms, the uniforms our team wear, and the events programme we curate, we strive to be an authentic reflection of our neighbourhoods, whilst supporting the communities that live and breathe around us.

Hox Friends

A handpicked group of locals in each city who help curate the bookshelves in our rooms and share neighbourhood tips for guests. An initiative we launched to further connect with the community and bring local culture into the bedrooms for guests to enjoy and discover.

We curate and host regular events and pop-ups in each of our hotels and restaurants, working with local creatives, brands, stores and start-ups, to bring the best of the outside into our hotels, and give up-and-coming talent a platform to showcase and share.
