I visited the City hotel as a lone female as I was on business and needed an overnight stay. Whilst the location is good for the tube, I didn't find it at all pleasant for a lone female, partly because there was a lack of places to eat (and the hotel does not have a restaurant) but secondly because the...

Hotel is in good location for the purpose of my visit Royal Hospital. Room was rather spacious. Good amenities. Towels changed daily. Only complaint was the air conditioning unit which leaked continusly for the 2 nights we stayed. We did approach reception on the 2nd day as the carpet was badly soaked and started to smell. The lady was extremely... More

Room at back, floor 6 - so relatively quiet though noisy corridors / rooms on either side. Air con units don't operate - set at min of 19C which meant with current heat that it was about 25C in the room overnight. Window could open about 4cm but with a still night (and thunderstorms predicted) there was no respite from... More

Stayed one night with my mother and sister. This little hotel blew me away, very very affordable, super clean and very nice. The hotel doesn't look big or beautiful from the outside but the inside is great. The Osborne street changes in to Bricklane, which is a up and coming hipster area, with a lot of great restaurants, vintage shops... More

We chose in this hotel for the reason of convenience and pricing. But to our surprise, hats off to the staffing. Upon checking out and at the airport, my daughter realized she left her iPad mini under the pillow. To be honest, her chance of getting it back was next to non. I called the hotel from the airport and... More

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.
