Last year alone, 19 million tourists lined our streets, to wander into museums old and new, dine in our eclectic restaurant range, shop till the soles of feet ache and rest their lazy heads on plush cold-sided hotel pillows.
Suffice to say, we’re a popular little city really, so there’s no surprise popping up a new hotel is a great decision. Enter The East London Hotel, which is arriving in, yep you guessed it, East London of all places! To be precise, the snazzy new addition to the big smoke’s hotel scene will be in Bethnal Green and will arrive in the autumn. Autumn is a time when words “crisp” and “autumnal” are thrown around like they’re going out of fashion. However, it’s also a time when darker nights call for a stay somewhere like this new hotel, with cosy knit socks, oversized jumpers and a hot choc or two.
So, what are the best bits? Well, the 161-roomed hotel is super close to the tube and over ground so it takes the pressure off pulling that bursting at the seams suitcase or waving down a taxi. The chic rooms are equipped with TVs, Wifi, monsoon showers and are designed to reflect the urban feel of our buzzy city. On your doorstep, there’s plenty of city sights, from Paradise Row’s bars and restaurants to tamer tinkerings at Columbia Road Flower Market, Spitalfields’ popular markets and the greenery of Victoria Park.
We’ll see you on the plush side.
The East London Hotel will open in Autumn at 309-317 Cambridge Heath Road, E2 9LH, www.theeastlondonhotel.com
