We found the Cable Inn to be comfortable, quiet and an easy location to use both buses and underground. Julian was personable and helpful to talk to and went out of his way to meet our needs. Our room was spacious and well equipped on the first landing with wonderful art works. Breakfast was informal and plentiful. We will always... More

Probably THE most charming B&B in the whole of London: Calm and quiet, full of character and colorful, close to DLR, underground and busses. If you're interested in fine arts, like secondhand finds, antiques, paintings and books, you'll love it there. The rooms are beautifully designed, with lots of handmade details and very comfy. We especially liked to chat with... More

When we decided to return to London for the second September in a row, there was no question where we should stay. Based on our wonderful experience in 2013, we went back to the charming Cable Street Inn. Since room #1 (our room last year) was already booked, innkeeper Julian recommended room #3. We found room #3 equally spacious, very... More

Five steps to No. 100 bus and two minute walk to Shadwell Underground and Overground station. Room is very nicely furnished and very quiet (no street or transport noise). Only a few rooms with friendly staff and fellow travellers. Big breakfast every morning. Will definitely stay again if I revisit London.

When I first exited the Shadwell DLR to find Cable Street Inn, I was not very comfortable with the surroundings, but once I managed to locate the B&B and got myself oriented, all was well. Stayed here three nights. While eating breakfast in the mornings, I could see that most of the people passing by on the street were young... More

This charming B&B with three very spacious rooms (ours had a four poster bed) was a wonderful place from which to explore London. Very close to London Bridge, and with nice restaurants a short 5-10 minute walk away. For example, we had some of the best Indian food we've ever had at the Spice Cafe, recommended by our host, Julian.... More

We used the entire inn for a weekend in London with our grown kids and it proved a good base of operations for our short stay. Very close to the DLR station. The rooms were all spacious and beautifully decorated and there was a good continental breakfast. Like many places in London there was no air conditioning which can get... More

The Cable Street Inn was the perfect location for our recent short stay in London. A short walk from the Shadwell DLR station and only half an hour from the West End by tube and DLR we were both close to everything and removed from the bustle when we wanted a break. Our host Julian was very welcoming and provided... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Cable Street Inn and I hope we will get to go back soon. Our room was spacious, clean and so comfortable. Breakfast is light but fresh and the location is fantastic, within a block of the tube and the overground. We stayed very busy during our trip and it... More
