This is my second time coming to this hotel and it always meets my expectations. The staff is very friendly and they always go above and beyond. I have now stayed in two differeny suites and I have found them very comfortable. It feels more like home than a hotel; if you are looking for something fun and unique this...

Expect a main stream brand hotel and this isn't for you. Rooms are home from home, each different and have their nuances. Only way to see what you like is to try. No staff fussing around, no keys loose, just a code to remember. Great location, cool walk through some of the best parts of Oxford to the centre if...

The best thing about this hotel is its location. It is good choice if you want to spend most of your days out because the hotel itself has nothing special. When I saw the photos I had a idea of very beautiful place to be in but it looks like a hostel inside. It is not a 4-star hotel at...

The only good thing about the hotel is the location which is a 5-10 walk to the centre of Oxford, other than that I am struggling to think of any positives. The room was on the ground floor next to a room with a security light outside, this stays on till around 11pm, I would advise taking a night mask...

The Ethos hotel was without a doubt the worst hotel for the money that we have ever stayed in at £105 per night plus tax and breakfast. On arrival late in the evening, we discovered that there is no reception and no on-site staff. Instead, we wandered around looking for staff as there are no clear signs and eventually phoned...

This hotel is a short walk from Oxford city center. The rooms are very modern although the technology doesn't always work. We stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip with our grown daughters. Our first room had a heated floor in our bathroom but it didn't work in our daughter's room. When we came back, neither bathroom...

Stayed in March 2017 as a couple in the 'best - modern city executive suite' for 2 nights.This was the only room they had left and, with breakfast and some cancellation flexibility, it cost £448. We found central hotels in Oxford expensive and busy. The Ethos hotel website gave me the impression I would be staying in a boutique hotel...

Picked the hotel because of its location (within walking distance of Oxford city center) and it had a pretty decent score of 4.2/5.0 on the website I used to book it. The staff we spoke to were extremely friendly and helpful throughout the whole stay. The room was nice, but.... I had payed more than I would usually and booked...
