These marble reliefs were once part of one of the great ancient temples on earth. They now reside at the British Museum. What are these great works of ancient art, what do they depict and where was their oringinAl location? This is for kids, not you.

For those who are interested, as soon as we arrived and unpacked TD headed out the door saying something about catching up with friends and partying and that he would meet us at the station before we left for Paris. Shocking! Must have learnt some bad habits on his last ...

... knocks your socks off. Finally, we looped past Traafalgar Square - a vibrant open square. Its usually packed with people & I'm noticing that people here have a big issue with texting & walking. They seem to always be in a huge rush & looking down at their phones. I keep having to dodge them & it gets very annoying.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hoxton Hotel London
Brilliant amazing value hotel in great location
we sayed two nights at this hotel and couldn't recommend it highly enough. great rooms quilts showers air con free pret breakfasts delivered to your room free wi fi fabulous modern design but with loads of character and a great bar and restaurant
ask for an aviator cocktail fresh zingy and delicious. a non smoking hotel but it has a lovely courtyard with a massive olive tree where you can smoke if you wish. we only paid £59 for the room for each night book direct on the hoxton hotel website
great hotel. Good funkiness. Super room, first class shower definitely one of the best i have ever had. Excellent food and a cracking bar reasonably priced too (stella 3.20)
Very interesting hotel and will be very popular i would stay again. We paid £100 so this is not based on a cheap rate.
You cannot park at the hotel but there are places around
Rude, inefficient and noisy
very poor reception staff kept me waiting for half an hour looking for my booking despite my confirmation email, which I showed them. Finally got a room after the agency rang them - why didn't they do this straight away. Was later summoned from my room to give them my card details, which I had already offered.
Room overlooked the atrium where the bar is. Noise until after midnight.
No apology received and the TV Channels didn't all work.
Not for me again.
Overall we had a great stay here, especially at the budget price.
This hotel is stylish with comfortable rooms & great bathrooms that you wouldn't get at twice the price in London. The shower was the best I've found in this country. They even give you a mini-breakfast. My only complaint is that the lobby, corridors and rooms were awfully dark, and I had trouble working at my desk. Neighbourhood is a little grotty and not especially convenient if you're going to the theatre or most museums. All in all it was a good experience; I've booked to stay there next week.
I also spent last Saturday (2nd) and Sunday (3rd) at the Hoxton Hotel for £29 a night. As a general rule Fri/Sat/Sun will run at £59 p/n and the rest of the week £119 p/n. It's worth registering with the site (www.hoxtonhotels.com) to get notification of when they are doing more £1 p/n specials etc
We stayed one night at the Hoxton and have to admit it was amazing value for the £29 we paid. This however was a introductory offer and I wonder what the normal prices will go up to.
The Hoxton hotel has just opened; and as an opening promotion they offered some of their rooms for £1/night. My partner and I stayed here the day after they opened, and we were very impressed. The rooms are good sized doubles, with ensuite shower rooms (no bath), the furnishings and decoration is all very luxe and swanky. The bed is *gorgeous* - Frette sheets that I so wished I could take home, above average quality for a hotel in this price bracket. Our room had a flat screen tv, that was positionable so you could watch in bed. The tv shows most UK terrestrial and freeview channels, but was a bit temperamental - some of the channels weren't working when we stayed.
A wonderfully comfortable bed, fine cotton sheets, gorgeously fluffy towels, a marvellously tactile divan, I can go on and on.... and I will!
