The Central

The Central provides visitors to London with an inexpensive and homely place to stay in the East End. From The Central you can walk to Upton Park Station, which gives you direct access to Central London and all the shops, attractions and theatres there. The East End has a distinct atmosphere that few tourists get to see and The Central is located on the first floor of an attractive Victorian pub, so you get to enjoy the benefits of having somewhere to relax after a long day of sightseeing.

The Central has a range of different sized rooms; there are singles, twins, one double room and also a number of triple rooms. All of the rooms come with a fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle, as well as a television for when you fancy a quiet night in. The bathrooms at The Central are shared, but there are ample facilities for all guests. This budget hotel offers self-catering accommodation, and there is a well-equipped shared kitchen so you can enjoy the benefits of cooking your own food.


The Central is a great base from which to explore the historic East End. You can visit the Whitechapel Bell Foundry, where Big Ben was cast in the 19th century. Spitalfields Market is a great place to shop and eat on the weekend. Or you could visit Brick Lane to get a taste of authentic Indian food. The Central gives you easy access across the capital so you can explore as much as you like.
