The hotel is small, but the room was modern and actually very nice. I had a bit of trouble finding it from E. Aldgate subway, but that's down to me probably ! Good location for central London too. Be aware that the hotel doesn't have a bar and there are notices up forbidding alcohol on the premises. I can't comment...

This is a great hotel. Nice rooms, good service and, for the purpose of my visit a great location. I visit London for work quite a bit and am constrained by budget. I am so frustrated at having paid for a night what I could pay for a weekend up north, only to find sparse room and tired furnishing &...

Hotel is at a good location near o station etc, but beyond that it doesn't offer anything. House Keeping never cleaned my room properly or refill the water or toiletries. The receptions staff don't like to talk to you (except one guy who is warm n good.) I would take something else if available for the same price.

Wish I had paid attention to all the bad reviews about this hotel. The surrounding area is not nice My wife felt quite unsafe at night. Our room was supposed to be a premier room, I hate to think how what a basic room must be like. It was so small we could not both walk around at the same...

I’ve stayed at The Whitechapel hotel a few times now on business & leisure & each stay has suited my needs. The main reason is price & location, at around £80-£100 per night & location is within a few minutes walk of either Whitechapel or Aldgate East tubes, there are a couple of NCP car parks that I use to...

This hotel surprised me in a very pleasant way. It's cosy and very well kept, clean and staff friendly. I only stayed for a couple of nights but I enjoyed every moment of it. The only downside I could find was staying in a room with sink. It reminded me of most hotel rooms in Paris. I recommend it if...

Great little find with this boutique hotel. Excellent decor, room, facilities. Very clean and relaxing room. Very reasonably priced mini bar and nice toiletries. Very polite and accommodating staff. Great price for a brief stay in London and close to Tower and Whitechapel attractions. Could have done with more leg room between the loo and the bath is the only...

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.

Striking yet smooth, elegant bedroom spaces in a contemporary bold statement - perfect for creatives and professionals alike, whatever your reason for travelling.
