East London: a snapshot.

It doesn’t matter how short your stay or how non-stop your schedule. Staying right in the heart of East London means you can soak up all the creative, vibrant action just by stepping outside.

Shoreditch, Brick Lane and The City are a short stroll away. Aldgate East station is less than two minutes’ walk. And if you manage to squeeze in any sightseeing, a short loop down to Tower Bridge and along the river will provide more postcard-worthy shots than you can shake a filter at.

Hey Kristjan, Thanks for completing our survey and sharing your experience with us. While I'm glad we scored high in aspects of service and cleanliness, disappointed to see you weren't a fan of our micro studio corners. We aim to provide rooms which are cosy yet efficient but we do get some guests to have their preferences. If you do happen to come back I would recommend staying in our micro studios as we have several layouts which might suit your needs or if you need more space why not try and book our Locke Studio? Let me know if you want to stay with us again, you can email me at [email protected] and I will personally handle your stay. Kind regards, Josh & The Leman Locke Team
