We felt greatly welcomed by our host Julian who gave great advice on where to go for meals. The room was adorable, comfortable bed, great view, lovely decor. Even there are so many things to explore in London - we felt like staying in to get the most out of our room. Nice breakfast with real cloth napkins, milk in...

My husband and I spent several nights at this hotel in May. What a lovely place. Julian is a gracious and friendly host. Rooms are very clean with large bathroom and robes are supplied. It is a quiet neighborhood and a really interesting place to stay. Very close to the DLR and short walk to The Tower. The breakfast is...

We picked this B and B off of Trip Advisor for our trip to London. Although it is very far from Heathrow (London traffic is bad , so it took a long time to arrive) it is walking distance to Tower of London. Julian greeted us warmly and the room on the top floor was simple, yet clean and large....

My Husband and I recently arrived home after a visit to London. We were very fortunate to have chosen the Cable Street Inn as our base. The Inn itself is full of character and history. Art and artifacts abound. Our room had a wonderful Juliette balcony looking over the garden and park to St. George in the East church, sitting...

I stayed here for work and didn't know what to expect. It was a revelation, beautiful design great hospitality and lovely lovely comfortable beds! Julian who runs it is a charming host. Anywhere you stay that has a view from your room of a Hawksmoor church across a park in central London is a winner!

This little gem of a B&B is hidden in a surprisingly historic part of London, close to Tower Bridge and nestling on Cable Street, between Tobacco Dock and Whitechapel. A beautifully converted public house, it's a bit like a Tardis with three spacious bedrooms and a very comfortable breakfast room and lounge, together with a lovely roof terrace on which...

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...

Staying in Whitechapel

Neighbourhood 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.

“There are 3 rooms at the Inn, Room 3 overlooks the street, but the bathtub is perfect after a long day of walking!”

“Also saw Room 2 which is next to the breakfast area. Maybe it would be noisier than Room 1 which was very quiet.”

“Next visit will ask to stay in room 3 on top floor away from dining room (not that this was a problem)”
