Not a hotel

This was without doubt one of worst value rooms I have ever booked - over £200 per night for a room in a house with a door and window onto a back street pavement. Completley fooled by the web site and phography on web site very decieving.

Strange setup

Our room was in what appeared to be an annex - outside access off a walkway/patio that was max 8 feet from curbside to door. Not bad for noise because the street was quiet. Room design was strange. Had excess floor space to provide mini-kitchenette - but had to dodge around toilet to get into shower door. Room generally very moden in design and features. Hotel failed to provide breakfast as website says they do. When contacted after desk opened (they are only there from about 9AM-7PM), they said breakfast not included in online rate despite what website says. Location is 15-20 minute walk from city center, and only a few blocks from scenic spots on the river.

Close but quiet

Great location,walking distance to anywhere in Oxford but on an out of the way quiet street. Nice new rooms. We thought breakfast was included but it wasn't. If you book, double check.

Convient and value pricing.

For our stay it was a good location and a place to sleep. Cleaned daily and excellent wifi. Amenities were not all working (kitchenette (?) sink had a broken off faucet ) and although there were apologies nothing else was done for us. For the price it was satisfactory.

Over my expectations

Just came back from 3 days at Ethos. I have enjoyed my stay and definitely will come back. The room is nice and clean and the street is quiet. Not too far from the center, girl in reception was very kind and helpful.

Very clean, well located

Oxford is a beautiful town, and life gets much better if you can walk to the town center and university. This is the case with Ethos, a short walk from the action. We found the bedroom and bathroom to be clean, nicely designed and in perfect shape. Our stay included a nice breakfast at a cafe overlooking the Thames River, with its bridges and canal boats. All in all, we would definitely stay there again.

Shopping tip: Long walk from hotel

Besides the fabulous university, Oxford boasts an amazing array of great shopping. High quality, good values, nice designs on clothing, not available in the States.
