The East London Hotel is a newly opened hotel in the heart of Bethnal Green. It situated a few minutes walk from the underground station Bethnal Green and surround by trendy bars and restaurants. The hotel describes itself as ‘modern but unpretentious, comfortable but affordable‘, a statement which I agree with.
East London is up and coming with towns like Shoreditch and Bethnal Green leading the way. The East London Hotel is perfectly located, easy access to central London via London Tube. It also offers super-fast WiFi which as a blogger is very essential to be able to work as I relax.

We enjoyed our stay at The East London Hotel, we found the staff very helpful and food delicious. After a long day trotting around East London earlier in the day, it’s exactly what we needed. The best was super comfortable, all their mattresses are made by Millbrook a British company.
The shower was invigorating and loved that I could choose been a normal shower heard and monsoon. I loved the Rituals shower/shampoo combo, the eucalyptus was so refreshing. We loved our stay and can not recommend it enough, perfect location and great staff.
