Ethos Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was basic, but neat and clean. Quiet neighborhood and easy walk to sights in Oxford.

While dropping off my daughter at the university, I needed some close and post-effective lodging. The Ethos Hotel fits the bill. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

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.

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.

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.

Cute, but small room. Clean, but not up to the 4-5 star standard. Helpful and friendly staff.

The hotel was a brief walk to the University and High Street areas. Very helpful staff. More like a Bed and Breakfast than a hotel. Big bed for a good price.
