Review: Hyatt Place London City East 

Posted on
June 28, 2022

Back in January, we stayed in the Hyatt House Hotel in Manchester and had such a good experience, that when we started looking for a hotel in London for my birthday, the Hyatt chain was our first port of call.

We had tickets to see Ed Sheeran at Wembley and although Hyatt Place London City East was the other side of London, it was an easy, direct journey on the Metropolitan line from nearby Aldgate Tube Station.

The hotel is close to vibrant Brick Lane, Spitalfield’s Market, the Tower of London, and the artistic streets of Shoreditch, so a great place to explore the city.

With just two of us travelling, our room on the 9th floor, was small, but perfectly formed, with L-Shaped windows to make it feel bigger.

The added bonus was a stunning private terrace, where we could sit, relax and take in the fabulous views of the city skyline.

The room contained a king size bed, dedicated work space, a smart 55″ Smart TV and a contemporary bathroom with a walk-in shower.


The room also comes with a safe, small fridge, hairdryer, Iron/ironing board, tea / coffee facilities and a nespresso machine.

On arrival, we were greeted with a delicious welcome treat from their patisserie, which was a really lovely surprise.

On the same floor is the PocketSquare Skyline Bar, which serves a delicious hand-crafted cocktail menu and bar snacks.


The bar snack menu is designed to compliment the cocktails and we had fun trying a couple of different options. Lou, their bar manager was fantastic in her knowledge of each cocktail and knowing what we would like.

She proudly explained that all the ingredients were locally sourced and ethically sourced too.

PocketSquare enjoys a heated outside terrace area so you can enjoy the views as you relax.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner are served downstairs in their basement restaurant, Zoom.

The only downside to our stay was the size of the restaurant as it was packed at breakfast time. That being said, once we found a table, the food was delicious and offered a good range of options, including a continental or cooked breakfast options and even Halal and vegetarian options.

The hotel is the perfect base for exploring London. It is just a 10 minute walk to the Tower of London, which currently has its Jubilee celebration SuperBloom event on, where the moat has been filled with meadow flowers.

The closest tube station is Aldgate East, which is less than a five minute walk away, which offers easy access to central London and the West End.

Are we nearly there yet? is a new online blog run by me, Kara Guppy, and is named as such thanks to my daughter Eliza who always asks that very question when we are less than 5 minutes up the road heading off on our adventures. You may know me from my other family blog
