Gritty Whitechapel has plenty to recommend it, not least the groundbreaking Whitechapel Gallery and historic Bell Foundry, and while good hotels in Whitechapel are thin on the ground, it’s a great base for bustling Brick Lane, aka Banglatown, as well-known today for its side-street designer and vintage fashion shops as for its curry houses.
Sunday’s UpMarket showcases more creative makers and shakers, and there’s no shortage of places to eat – such as East End institution Brick Lane Beigel Bake – and drink; we love old-style boozers Pride of Spitalfields and the Still & Star. Here's our pick of the best hotels in Whitechapel.

The best hotels in Whitechapel
With a sister hotel in Hyde Park, the Arbor brings a bit of class to Whitechapel’s accommodation. Just off Brick Lane, it’s in the heart of the action but, thanks to good design and soundproofing, fairly quiet. Smart and spacious accommodation, with a muted palette, has tea- and coffee-making facilities and free wifi. Completing the picture, there’s a communal lounge area – think contemporary mid-century – plus cocktail bar, restaurant, screening area and patio garden. From around £290.
