We stayed in this hotel for 3nights and found the service to be impeccable. On our first night (Tuesday) the staff were exceptional, a young gent from Hungary (sorry I cannot remember his name) and a young blonde lady. I can't recommend them both highly enough, above and beyond! Rooms were lovely, only complaint would be the emergency light was... More

Wow! In writing this in room 515 and I couldn't hold back on reviewing this hotel! When I paid for this hotel I was very sceptical because it was so well priced for London. So happy we stayed here. Perfect location 30secs walk from Aldgate East tube and a short walk to the markets or Tower Bridge. HIGHLY recommend and... More

We spent three nights here in January and found it to be very convenient for exploring London. It is 2 minutes to Aldgate east tube station and very easy to get anywhere. The room was comfortable, clean and mostly quiet - soundproofing between rooms could be better. The staff at the front desk were very helpful and friendly.

My daughters and I were thrilled by the spacious, clean room, with flat screen TV, coffee/tea service, great Wifi and a beautiful bath. We enjoyed the restaurant as well. The staff was accommodating and helpful. The location is convenient, very close to the Aldersgate East tube stop...and the end of the Jack the Ripper tour! It was a bit noisy... More

Very friendly, helpful staff. Very comfortable room, great sleep! Excellent location for access to the City, with Aldgate East underground very close by. The restaurant has a limited menu, but the steak baquette I had was very tasty. Highly recommended.

Stayed on business. Hotel is very nice and excellent value for money. Rooms are very good indeed, high quality, very clean and with flat screen TV and free wifi. Issues: location is very close to central London but not in the greatest of areas. Personally I did not have a problem at all, but walking to and from the hotel... More

We stayed at this hotel in November 2015 for two night, it is very well located a short distance away from Aldgate East Underground Station. There are different types of restaurants around it especially the curry serving restaurants, which we love.

Staying in Whitechapel

Neighborhood Profile
Whitechapel
Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden squares, these days you're more likely to catch a cutting edge fashionista scurrying through its age old lanes than criminals of any sort.
