A youthful and affordable hotel in a former textile factory in London’s East End. Many attractive original features remain, such as industrial windows, old fire-escape doors and the huge metal sign above the bar. Space is maximised even in the dinkiest of rooms (‘Pocket’). Attention is given to the most important details: king-sized beds with Hypnos mattresses, a big mirror, a television, USB ports and a capsule-like, glass wet room with a rainfall shower. If travelling as a couple, upgrade to a Warehouse X room for a huge couch-bed. The hotel is in the ever-vibrant, multicultural neighbourhood of Whitechapel, with the likes of the Whitechapel Gallery and arthouse cinema Genesis mixed in with long-standing South Asian shops and restaurants – hotspot Tayyabs is around the corner.
