Arbor City Hotel
What We Love
- A stylish, newly revamped hotel in hip East London – includes breakfast and a dining discountThe fab location – a cultural melting pot, where the fantastic curry houses and mosques (and modern art gallery) of Whitechapel meet the boutiques, vintage shops and hipster dining of fashionable Brick Lane.
- Being just a 20-minute walk from the river and Tower Bridge
- The cool new interior makeover, transforming this dated hotel into a stylish and high-end city base
What To Know
- Conveniently located near the Aldgate East tube station and not far from Brick Lane
- Street-facing rooms can be a bit noisy, especially on weekends
- WiFi is reliable
Arbor City Hotel has a great location for exploring the best of the UK capital. Tucked away in hip East London, within walking distance of Brick Lane and Spitalfields Market, the hotel is right near a tube station, so the sights, museums, shops and dining scene of central London are also a breeze to discover.
This hotel has recently undertaken a major refurbishment, which has added a luxurious splash of ultra-modern style to the somewhat dated exterior and previously basic design. You’re guaranteed to be allocated one of the brand-spanking-new rooms, completely redesigned from scratch with a fashionable mid-century vibe and colorful design accents.
In addition to Wi-Fi, you’ll find a newly designed bar and restaurant on-site, though it’d be a crime not to check out the wonderful local restaurants, from sky-high dining at Sushi Samba to Brick Lane’s famous stretch of curry houses to the hip street-food markets at Spitalfields.
How to Get There
I had a lovely evening with my family in the restaurant thanks to Florin (the waiter) for the good services!!! The food here was very good, I really enjoyed it!!! I am definately gonna come back here if I am in London!!!
I believed the information written online about this hotel was true, but actually it was misleading, because the pictures put online only showed part of the reality both in and outside the hotel. We travelled with 3 kids and were looking for a hotel in a safe area. This hotel is rated as a 4 star-hotel, but considering the smell of the carpet in and outside the room, the broken furniture, the limited continental breakfast, and the noisy and dirty roads in which the hotel is located, it cannot really have all these stars. If it was rated as a 3-star hotel, I would have been prepared to something like this. The parking area is just next to the hotel, and it does not belong to the hotel. I did not understand why they told us to pay the 90 pounds for the 3 days of parking in cash.
The room was large, and clean but smelly. The bathroom was not very ideal for kids, with a sink that was barely usable by adults. 2 of the 3 beds in the room were not very comfortable, because one could feel the frame beneath the mattress, and most of the curtains in the room were broken. The switch for the ventilation in the bathroom was almost attached to the ceiling, and only a very tall person could access it. Best regards.
Great location, clean and efficient service. Brick Lane Curry Houses,Bagels and Shoreditch are a short walk away. Lumpy pullout bed but they gave us another quilt to soften it. Couldn't find any room/hotel/area information which would have been useful.
