Where to stay
We stayed at Aptel Hotel in Whitechapel, which is the perfect location in the midst of it all, and within walking distance to much of the City’s offerings. The hotel itself is a modern apart-hotel style setup with rooms perfect for families with a kitchenette and space for four to sleep!
The team at Aptel were more than accommodating and the general experience exceeded our expectation. There’s a 24 hour concierge and we found there was always someone around to help if you needed them, which made for a much more ‘hotel’ experience than your typical London apartment offering on booking platforms.
The location is perfect for eating out too, with Shoreditch, Hoxton and the famous Brick Lane right on the doorstep. We walked back from Hoxton late in the evening and took in some of the local area. The closest tube is Aldgate East, but to be honest walking or jumping in an Uber is a better option for most trips out with a family group.
The hotel has a few rooms setup specifically for families, and expect nice touches like games and snacks upon arrival. The room we stayed in was lovely and quiet despite Southwark council deciding to dig up the road in the middle of the night!
The beds are super comfy and the rooms have well stocked kitchenettes with everything you need if you don’t fancy eating out, there’s plenty of takeaways or Uber Eat’s on the doorstep. We really couldn’t fault our stay and would thoroughly recommend Aptel for any family (or couples) trip to London.
