Rooms are quiet and cozy – perfect space to unwind.

A grapefruit and mezcal cocktail in the lovely courtyard.

If you’re on the go, coffee and drinks are also available for takeaway every day in the lobby.

Easing into the day with coffee from the mini bar.

Cute spot to lounge with a cocktail in the Hoxton’s outdoor courtyard.

Love the winding staircase by the reception area.

You can also find newspapers in the lobby – and the seating is very comfy!

The sun-drenched lobby is another ideal hang-out spot - have drinks with friends or relax and read.

Inside Rivié, the hotel’s stylish all-day French restaurant.

The hip Marais neighborhood is a short walk from The Hoxton.

The complimentary bathroom amenities from Blank smell amazing. You won’t even want to use whatever you’ve packed!

Catching up on emails – there are tons of spaces to get work done if you don’t feel like sitting in your room, and the WiFi is fast and free.

Highs & Lows

  • Fun restaurant and bars – the Hoxton Paris offers tons of spaces to grab a drink, croissant or full meal, including the Planche, a wine bar, Rivié, the hotel’s restaurant, Jacques’, a cozy cocktail bar.

  • Location – walking distance to the major sites like the Louvre, and the Musée d’Orsay, plus Montmartre and the hip Marais neighborhood.

  • Great for working - the lobby is a great spot to post up with a laptop and catch up on emails – lots of outlets and free wifi.

  • Friendly staff – check-in was easy and the staff was super helpful – I mentioned I enjoy pasta and pizza and quickly received a list of dining recommendations in the area.

  • The doorless walk-in shower is totally trendy, but it the set-up was difficult to use without creating a puddle in the bathroom.

  • Crowded – it’s great that the Hoxton is popular with Parisians and travelers alike, but sometimes the lobby and restaurants felt so busy that finding a spot to sit could be tough.
