Positive Reviews

Penthouse fit for a king

With two bedrooms, a kitchen, a lounge/dining area and phenomenal views, plus two HDTV’s, and a luxurious double-ended bath; it's impossible not to feel like the king of East London when you're staying in The Whitechapel's penthouse suite!

Soundproofing works a treat

Noise and commotion are part and parcel of daily life in Shoreditch You wouldn't know this when you're inside The Whitechapel though as the soundproofing used throughout keeps the aforementioned hustle and bustle squarely in check.

Haven for bus-hopping

The hotel's proximity to Whitechapel Road and Commercial Road ensures it is incredibly easy to catch a bus to almost any part of the city While the Underground and Overground are both great in their own way, there's nothing quite like exploring London on a red double-decker!

Negative Reviews

Sketchy neighbourhood to the uninitiated

Shoreditch's edgy vibe can be a bit of a culture shock to some visitors, especially after dark when the area can seem a little more intimidating than it really is Be bold: Shoreditch isn't a ghetto, it's just a little 'moody' at times!

Beeping door locks

The Whitechapel has electronic room locks installed that beep every time you enter your room The downside of these 'beepers' is that you can't help but hear them when other people are trying to get into their rooms late at night and you're struggling to get to sleep.

Slightly puritan management policies

The management of the Whitechapel maintains some spiritual views which don't always go down well with some guests For instance, no alcohol is served on the premises and, from time to time, the restaurant is closed during the day to observe certain religious beliefs Check before you book if this kind of thing is likely to be an issue for you.
