I m fairly new to reviewing - in fact this is the first time that I have done so but The Cable Street Inn is so good I had to post a review and share the experience. The Cable Street Inn is located in an historic corner of London yet easily within reach of all the major attractions the city... More

Three more perfect stays at the Cable Street Inn - November for 2 weeks, December for 3 days, and January for New Year. We stayed in Room 3, configured as a twin. There is no where else my daughter and I would ever consider staying in London.

A very comfortable bed. Quiet area. The building is old with a lot of character. Great breakfast with plenty to eat. A lounge to sit in with books to read. Helpful host. A spacious bedroom with tv and free wifi. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed for one night at the Cable Street Inn in February. We were looking for somewhere with charm and period features rather than a faceless hotel, one that was relatively near to the O2 in North Greenwich. The Cable Street Inn looked to be the place for us - always helps when a venue is supported by a well-designed... More

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

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.
