Stayed for the night during a two day sight seeing trip to London, chose this B&B after seeing the reviews on here and they didn't lie. We arrived several hours late without informing the Host Julian (again sorry about that) but were still met with a smile. The room was a joy to be in. It was well decorated and... More

We stayed at the Cable Street Inn for three nights in November and were joined by two members of our family on the second day. We all had an excellent stay. Our host Julian was very friendly and helpful. He had a wealth of information about the area, restaurants and pubs. The Inn is a remodeled pub. We had a... More

If you are going to be in London for a few days or a week, on business or pleasure, the Cable Street Inn is a very convenient and pleasant place to stay. While the general area around Cable Street is not glamorous, it is a middle class neighborhood with lots of families getting their kids to school in the morning,... More

We were quite pleased with our stay at the Cable Street Inn. It is a lovely, small B&B which is one tube stop (Shadwell) from Tower Hill in the East End. Our room (King) was roomy and I imagine much larger than normal London hotel rooms. It was tastefully decorated. The bathroom was large and nice bathrobes were provided. It... More

We visited London staying at the Cable Street Inn in October 2014, thoroughly enjoying our choice of lodging. The Inn is so well located for exploring the Tower of London and the adjacent areas by foot, via a scenic pathway along the canals to the east of the tower area. Julian was very,very helpful in recommending things to do, and... More

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.

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.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.
