From the moment you glimpse the baroque architecture of Town Hall and walk into the marble entrance-way with its sweeping staircase and art-deco interior, you know your stay will be memorable. A new concept, Town Hall is your dream pied a terre in the heart of London`s vibrant East End, where five star amenities are combined with the space, convenience and comfort of a designer apartment.
Work out in the poolside gym, cook your favourite dinner in your superbly appointed kitchen or treat yourself at Typing Room the destination restaurant for foodies; enjoy the newly-commissioned art on display by London`s most exciting young artists; choose a decadent cocktail with a plate of tapas in the bar; or simply relax in your apartment, furnished with the most luxuriously comfortable furniture and some unique vintage collectibles. No-one whos tried Town Hall living will ever go back to a standard hotel again. The swimming pool will remain closed on the 29th of April from 10am to 5pm.

This gorgeous room has now been transformed into a spectacular suite of a truly outstanding quality.

Standard One Bedroom Apartment

Me & my girlfriend were at the Town Hall Hotel from friday to monday in march. Got an upgrade to a double-bed room with kitchen and it was excellent! Best bed I ever slept on, the glass wall on the bathroom was weird but funny and quite cool. Oh god how I loved the staff and the service, I couldn't thank them enough! The even helped me with tie-ing a tie knot before we went to the Lion King show. Loved the stay!

Excellent hotel for the right traveler

Overall, my stay exceeded my expectations and was great. The room was unbelievable -- I couldn't get used to the amount of space and the amenities for the price. Best price/value I've had in London. I had a 1BR suite with a kitchen, separate living room, and gorgeous bath. It even had a washer/dryer. While I was traveling alone this time, I would love to have this type of room for my family on a future trip (I have 3 kids ages 10, 7, and 2). Staff was extremely courteous. However, it's not for everyone. There's very little right in the immediate neighborhood and you have to be comfortable with a more urban setting. It's safe (I was walking around alone at midnight which as a small woman travelling alone I would not do lightly), but there are few sights in the area. You have to take the Central Line tube into town - easy walk to the Bethnal Green station (3 mins). The Tower of London is about a 10 minute ride, plan on 20 for the more touristy parts of London. Perfect for solo or couple travelers, and great for some families -- ours would love it because we like the convenience of laundry and kitchen and don't really want to eat at restaurants onsite. If you need kid friendly restaurants onsite or kid activities then this probably isn't the hotel for your family. I only had two complaints. The first was the noise of the fire doors slamming. Housekeeping began at 9am and they slammed incessantly for the next two hours (literally about once every other minute). I'm a sound sleeper and it kept me awake. Just be sure to ask for a room in a different hall than housekeeping. The second issue was that the air conditioning went out at 3am one night - I woke up in a complete sweat. Given that most rooms in London don't have A/C and it's not usually that warm, I think this is a minor complaint. Overall, excellent facilities, great staff, amazing hotel. Plan ahead for the location and you'll really enjoy it.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Be sure to check out Bistrotheque - one of the current hip restaurants in London. It's a 10 minute walk from the hotel, excellent food, but you'll have to ask the concierge to know how to find it as there's no sign. You truly have to know it's there.

Wonderful Staff

Room was not well sound proofed and could hear everything going on in the hall such as other guests and housekeeping entering and leaving rooms. The furnishings were sparse and were not welcoming to spend any time in the room. I would personally prefer a softer decor. The location did not welcome exploration but was close to the tube. Staff was extraordinarily attentive and helpful.

Fantastic conversion from a municipal town hall to a luxury hotel - exceptionally comfortable, brilliantly designed rooms. Friendly staff. Hotel situated in a more gritty part of London - adds to the interesting appeal of the place!

An extraordinarily good find

Didn't really know Bethnal Green before I came here and it was a surpirse to find such a glamorous hotel in perhaps not the most glamorous of locations. The room was amazing - great for being in as well as a base for London in general - close to tube station too. Excellent standards of design, space and staff. We also got to enjoy the cocktail bar which was quite unique and although we didn't eat there, the michelin starred restaurant looked good too. If you're looking for a mixture of luxury, style and also practicality (the room was an apartment with a kitchen, washing machine, dishwasher etc...) then this is a great place for you and not horrifically expensive either. Possibly the only missing link was the lack of a bath vs just a showrer - there was room for one. Make sure you check out Broadway market too, and the Childhood Museum (the museum shop at least is woirth a visit) nearby.

Great Hotel in an offbeat location

Stayed at this hotel during the Summer Olympics and was very happy! We had a 2 bedroom apartment which gave us plenty of room to spread out. Located in the Bethnal Green area which was close to the Olympic Park but not in downtown London. Hotel is only 2 blocks from the Underground. Area seems to be up and coming. Felt safe walking to and from tube no matter the time of day or night. I would definitely recommend it!

Diamond in an odd location

If you have business in the City in London, it's hard to beat this hotel. It is not on the well-traveled path, however, and if you are not comfortable in one of London's largely immigrant communities, it may not be for you. But look beyond that, and you will be treated to a hotel experience that usually comes with a much stiffer price. The kicker is the restaurant, which is absolutely superb. The other end of Bethnal Green Road is already home to pricey bistros and pretty people. With the quality of the staff, the service and the food, you should give the Town Hall a serious look. And if you go, ask them to show you round the original council chambers. This is a quality remodel of a listed historic building.

A fantastic hotel in a rundown neighborhood

I stayed at the Town Hall Hotel & Apartments in the Bethnal Green area of London in September 2011. While the surrounding neighborhood is noticeably rundown and low-end, the hotel itself is completely the opposite. This renovated town hall has a very elegant look to it. The 1 bedroom apartment in which I stayed was very up to date and bright. Everything was very comfortable, particularly the huge bathtub. The apartments come with kitchens, complete with stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, and sink. The spacious bathroom had a very large bathtub with shower, and a washer/dryer combo. The room's come with a safe to protect valuables, and each night we'd return to our cleaned room where truffles were waiting for us. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk to the Bethnal Green underground stop on the Central Line. The nearest major London attraction is St. Paul's Cathedral which is three or four stops away. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The concierge, Pablo, assisted us in making sure a taxi was available at 4:30am to go to the St. Pancras station to take the Eurorail to Paris for the day. At the end of our stay Pablo assisted us in printing out our boarding passes for quick check-in at the airport. They did charge us 75 pounds per day for an extra bed, which I felt was pricey. But overall it was a pleasant experience, and I would stay there again. Through Orbitz the evening rate was a very affordable $150, which is amazing for a place right in London with these sort of amenities. The hotel has a very posh restaurant and bar called Viajante (traveler), as well as more comfortable dining room.
