It's the complete package, real panache here. Practical considerations were satisfied: a convenient location (E1), close to major attractions, very good transportation options. My room was well-appointed, and the bed and linens felt quite luxurious. Julian, the proprietor, is very gracious and helpful. But the inn moves into the realm of the special and unique by virtue of Julian's vision....

I had the room which is painted blue with an extremely comfortable bed with great pure white cotton sheets, a television, a huge and impressive wardrobe and a warm thick pile fitted carpet- also brand new and clean. Breakfast was sumptuous. Julian Cole was the host with the most: not interfering in any way, but always there in case anything...

I will try not to drop into cliche by using the words 'tranquil' 'oasis' or 'eclectic' in this review - but it is all of those things and more. This doesn't feel staying like a B&B or a hotel - it feels like the second home of your most tasteful and cultured friend has been thrown open to you. I...

Great location in an neighborhood full of restaurants in walking distance (great recommendation for the best curry since a long, long time). The room I stayed in was wonderfully renovated; the area, although close to everything, is quite (I could sleep with my window open). I walked along the Thames, to the docks and Tower.

I chose it because of the reviews from trip advisor and wasn't disappointed, Julian has lovingly restored the inn and it has a great authentic feel about it, you can tell its a work of love. Its very well kept and was a pleasure to stay there. Also Julian has a lot of local knowledge which I found very useful...

This was the perfect place for me. Very convenient for access to Tobacco Dock and within easy reach of West End (15 minutes) and all attractions via transport from Shadwell (1 minute walk and 2 train lines). A beautiful historical building very clean and amazing, four poster, very comfortable bed in room number 2. Excellent value compared to other hotels...

This was a lovely Inn. Tucked away in the an up and coming area of East London. The rooms were extremely comfortable...the bathtub was big and inviting. Free wifi, nice breakfast in a spacious drawing room all decked out for Christmas. The Inn keeper also gave a great suggestion for lunch at a historical pub at the Prospect of Whitby....

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.
