This hotel was a very nice surprise. Breakfast was very good - full English breakfast. The room was more spacious than usually found in Europe, bed was clean and very comfortable, bathroom was very nice and the shower worked well, and, importantly, the room was cool, quiet and dark for sleeping. The room was not posh, but certainly well above...

The room was lovely, clean and comfortable and the bathroom was also clean and well stocked with towels and all of the usual requisites. We had a meal in...

Very pleasant reception to the hotel by Richard. Interesting corner room design for handicapped guests – Lots of light but to limited on closet space. Breakfast was fine – although every coffee cup had a shadow of coffee from the last user even though they have been washed in the dishwasher. A few of the staff were disgruntled but that...

Few nice touches on arrival like a drink voucher . I forgot phone charger and staff at desk found one for me to borrow. Not in middle of nightlife but the...

Was very impressed when I first walked into this accommodation. Very modern and great customer service( the staff should be congratulated). We stayed in a standard room, which was very nice and clean. Could not fault the rooms at all. Now the location is not in the nicest area of Whitechapel(security at holiday inn is great). Whitechapel tube station is...

My wife and I stayed here for 2 two nights and were pleasantly suprised at the hotel. Everything seems shiny and new , very clean and a good sized hotel (some hotels in London can be quite small) This hotel is spacious , nice lounge area and sizeable restaurant. We had breakfast which was also of a good standard. We...

Staff were fantastic and the upgraded room was very spacious and nice. Two reasons for not getting excellent overall. The pillows weren't particularly comfortable and the location though fairly accessible wasn't the best. Otherwise great and would definitely go again.

To keep you on your toes, the hotel just recently changed its name from the Holiday Inn London - Commercial Road to the Holiday Inn London - Whitechapel. This makes total sense since the former name lacked appeal although you might dispute whether the hotel is in the land of Jack the Ripper. The location itself is far from glamorous...

Staying in Whitechapel

Neighbourhood 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.
