Cable Street Inn is just down the block from the DLR and Overground station in the East End. Consequently, the inn is quiet but provided easy access to anywhere we wanted to visit. The Inn was pretty, a bit quirky (restored old tavern), clean, and comfortable. Our room was on the 2nd floor- king bed, table and large chair, TV,... More

We spent a full week at Cable Street Inn, parents plus a 13-year old son. We were looking for a small structure with a "twist" and a bit off the beaten track. The Cable Street Inn was just perfect, very different to central London and yet so close; cosy, very very clean, very English. Absolutely no street noise for a... More

We picked this Inn for the location, closest to our objective. Also, a short walk to public transit. The inn has a lot of character. View of green garden outside of window and on terrace. The first night the room was cold. Our room did not have any temperature control. But the second night was fine. The bathroom was old... More

I am sorry your stay did not live up to all your expectations. We do have some original bathroom fittings and door locks etc. The original features and historic fabric of the building is what our guests generally find appealing and what sets us apart. We don’t have AC but there is a state of the art hot water and... More

Needed to stay in London to ensure a early appointment was not missed. Found this hotel on the internet after checking postcode location. Very comfortable and quiet. Julian was very helpful and there was plenty of teat and coffee available in the dining room. Breakfast was continental and plenty of it. I travelled by train and the hotel is about... More

Julian was a gracious host with a lovely bed and breakfast in east London. Very quiet area close to overground train and taxi. Also very close to Tower of London and some very good restaurants. Bed is very comfortable and bath charming. Lovely upstairs deck with lovely views. I would certainly stay there again

This is a great B&B very close to a DLR line that can get you to any of the major attractions in the city within 10 mins. The owner, Julian, is very friendly and helpful. We stayed in room 4 which had a great view of the garden and church. Very comfortable room and great bathroom. You really feel like... More

A hidden gem in London, we had such a great time at Julian's. This former pub turned into an outstanding b&b is just a stone's throw from Tower Hill and St. Katharine Docks (a 10 minutes walk, plenty of restaurants) and only one metro station from Bank. The surroundings are beautiful, Wapping is an area to discover. If I'll ever... More

This 3-room inn is well decorated and the owner is very pleasant and accommodating. However, it's a good 15 walk to get to restaurants and there are not any shops/attractions close by. Nor is it close to the subway. The location is about 15 minute walk east of the Tower of London. In hindsight, we would have preferred something closer... More

Thank you for your review but you have made some important inaccuracies which we need to correct. You say we are not close to the 'subway' but we are just one minute walk from Shadwell Station which has 2 lines. There are at least 5 good restuarants within 5 minutes walk and include curry houses, Turkish, Filipino, Italian and fish... More

The Cable Street Inn is nicely located for the places I need to go when in the Wapping area enabling quick access by foot but also very close to the DLR/under/overground. The rooms are large and very comfortable. The atmosphere is very friendly with a great host/manager.

Unusually quiet for central London though it was a Bank Holiday weekend. It's slightly misleading when you read the word Inn as it's no longer a pub. The owner is very relaxed which seems to be infectious. Just what you need when on the tourist trail. The Inn is very interesting itself, both for it's historic setting and that the... More

Staying in Whitechapel

Neighborhood Profile
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.
