Situated a minutes’ walk from Aldgate East Tube Station and on the gateway to Brick Lane, one of London’s foremost tourist attractions, City Hotel London is ideal for those people on a business trip and for those on a City break. The West End for its theatres and shopping is only ten minutes by tube to the west and the Olympic Stadium, including the fabulous Westfield Shopping Centre, is ten minutes to the east. We are within a short stroll to Spitalfields, famed for its great shopping and eateries, as well as The Whitechapel Art Gallery, The Tower of London and the East End’s famous street markets. The hotel offers a full English breakfast, noted for providing the best English sausages we can find. 24 hour room service is available and the Lane Bar and Restaurant is a great place to eat, drink and relax. Our rooms can sleep up to five adults and two children and are all en suite with great showers, flat screen TV and in-room safes. We also have car parking if required.Conference and banqueting facilities are also available at great prices and we can arrange for pick ups from all London Airports and Railway Stations.

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.

A nice hotel with clean rooms, nice bathroom and good service! Minor issue: Breakfast is ok, but there's no difference in offered food, which if you plan to stay a longer time it can become dull. A things considered, great place to stay in London!

I attended the Arbor Hotel for a weeks training. On day 1 I noticed one of the fire / emergency doors were broken and would not close securely. On informing Tatiana at reception, she didn’t seem too bothered or check on the door. The following day the door was still not secured.

Dear GAW1983, thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience with us and for bringing the matter pertaining to the security issue to our attention. I can confirm that this was reported to our maintenance manager who has since taken steps to resolve. Your valuable feedback has been also addressed appropriately with Front Desk team, please be assured the intention was simply to advise you as the meeting had not yet started we simply offered a seat in the lobby so you was not left waiting. Again, my sincere apologies if it was delivered the wrong way. We very much hope that despite the review we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the future, when we may have the opportunity to restore your faith in Arbor City
