staying with host Julian is like being at home but with better decor. My daughter, who recently bought a flat in the trendy East End, recommended Cable Street Inn but she, too, thought it the most interesting place I have stayed on visits to London.

We stayed here for a weekend in August for a family celebration - at the Globe Theatre & at Ottolenghi in Spitalfields. Other family live not too far away, and so this was an ideal location. However it also offered a home from home with the terrace (despite the rain!) and the breakfast room being good places to entertain a... More

We treated ourselves to a child-free evening in East London and found this bed & breakfast last minute. What a treat it was. The pub has been restored to a high standard and has a stylish, cool vibe. We immediately felt relaxed & welcome. Very comfortable beds, great roof terrace and a nice communal lounge. We'll definitely be back

I loved this place! The owner Julian is a very warm friendly guy and I felt at home right away. There was a lovely roof terrace area where I was able to sit and look at the East London skyline. My room was very cozy and the bathroom (with big victorian bathtub and modern shower) was a tasteful mixture of... More

The location is very near two public transport stations. I also walked to the Tower of London and Tower Bridge several times. The rooms are large and very comfortable. I was very pleased with the Inn. Julian is very nice and helpful. He lives downstairs. There is a lovely sitting, breakfast room, and nice patio. My room was so large... More

Stayed for four nights and was so pleased with our stay. We picked it because our friends were staying at a hotel close by, and we preferred to stay somewhere that wasn't a chain hotel and a place that had some charm. This was the place! Would have loved to have spent more time relaxing here, but being our first... More

We stayed here for one night, the bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet and had a lovely view of the nearby church. The en suite bathroom had a lot of restored furniture which had lovely character. Breakfast was great with lots of choice. The location was very convenient for the dlr. The owner was very friendly and... More

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, thought we must try this out for ourselves, we were visiting the 02 and didn't want to stay in the usual high rise towers, Perfect location 5 minute walk to the tube station and we managed to park a few minutes away from the front door free of charge.

Our host welcoming Julian Cole has crafted a superb space out of a once East End pub. A combination of elegance and comfort characterize the rooms, and rich works of art adorn the walls, including one where Julian himself is centered between the inimitable local (and internationally celebrated) artists Gilbert and George. A roof terrace overlooks his attractive back garden,... More

What a treasure! Not only have the owners restored this former pub with artist decor, the service was superb. The B&B is also one block from the Shadwell tube station so getting around London is a sinch. A lovely city park abuts the Inn & the Battle of Cable Street mural on a neighboring building provides an historic backdrop. Located... 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.
