“A gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Simply gorgeous. Clean, charming and quirky. Rooms were spacious and en-suite bathroom was lush. Really enjoyed my 2 night stay here when visiting an expo at ExCel. Breakfast was lovely too and Julian the host was friendly and helpful. It was nice to spend time on the roof top terrace though a little cold in Feb!

Room Tip: Perfect location if you are visiting the ExCel conference centre and so much nicer than a chain hote...

First impressions of Cable Street Inn are not too good. The property has no sign to indicate its a bed and breakfast, there was a dustbin parked outside what appeared to be the front door and we formed the view that the establishment may have closed down.

However, once we had found our way to the front door we were warmly greeted by the owner and shown to a delightful bedroom, which was of a good size, clean with lovely bed linen.

The complimentary drinks are located in a guest lounge. The self service breakfast is acceptable, but nothing special

It was disappointing that we needed to point out to the owner that the heating wasn't on, even though we arrived within 15 minutes if our declared time. However, this was quickly rectified.

The bathroom was chilly, even though there is a heated towel rail

A guest information booklet would be helpful, giving some detail of the history of the property, the local places of interest, the wifi log-on code, contact details etc

We enjoyed our stay, but feel it is overpriced

What a gem this small B&B is. Charming and quiet, just off the DLR line a quick ride from the city to the west and from ExCeL to the east. Julian Cole has put great love and care into his converted pub with comfortable, spacious rooms and a welcoming environment for the business or leisure traveler. Hypnos beds are ridiculously comfortable and the public areas are inviting. The Wapping/Docklands/Whitechapel location is extremely local rather than touristy and makes a nice change of pace from the standard London neighborhoods. Many fine restaurants an easy walk away, close to the biggest crush of Indian/Bangladeshi joints in the city and the trendy shopping of Aldgate/Spittalfields. A very enjoyable stay - we'll definitely be back on our next business trip.

Slept like a log, loved the room, the breakfast selection and the helpful service. Would definitely stay again. The only slight niggle was the wifi seemed intermittent, but that might have been me. Julian was super helpful and made us feel immediately at home.

Great place to stay. Very roomy and it felt like home. Julian was a very charming host. Will return again. Good location. Close to Shadwell station. I recommend taking the DLR down to the Prospect of Whitby which is a pub with good food.

The cable street inn is a true cosy place, fine location, esay to reach with the public transportation. This place was once a pub. This part of the east end, close to the docks and the Tower of London is nice ot discover.

Room Tip: room n°1, very quiet and comfortable, at the back of the house, once a local pub.
