The hotel features a lounge where guests can retire for a relaxing moment or two, as well as laundry services and airport transfers.

The Bethnal Green region, as well as nearby Shoreditch, has plenty of pubs, bars, restaurants, and nightspots to choose from. For those on business, the area is close to the financial district and only a short journey from Canary Wharfs business district. Its a lot more affordable than that region too.
Tourists can make their way to the likes of the British Museum, St. Pauls Cathedral, and Westfield Shopping Centre with minimal fuss as all of which feature at stops on the tubes Central Line, which is served by Bethnal Green station, moments from City View Hotel London.
With only one interchange on the underground, you can find yourself at such attractions as the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, and the Barbican Arts Centre, or, as is most popular with visitors to London, the Theartreland district in the West End.
Here you can easily spend a day or two wandering around Londons famous streets and locations, from Oxford Street (for shopping), Covent Garden (for fine dining and markets), to Leicester Square (for cinema), and Trafalgar Square (for museums and an historical perspective). Along the way youll pass the many performance theatres that are scattered throughout the city. Why not stop in and catch a show? Wicked, The Phantom of the Opera, and Blood Brothers continue to be favourites of theatre-goers.
The vast entertainment complexes of Wembley Stadium and the O2 Arena in North Greenwich are readily available to those with a travelcard and tube map. Both of these venues feature sporting events and pop/rock concerts regularly.
If its something a little more placid that interest you, Hyde Park can also be found on the Central Line. Along with the citys other recreational parks (Victoria Park, Regents Park, St. James Park to name but a few), Hyde Park is a great place to go to take a load off. Relaxing and charming but with plenty to distract you, its quite easy to lose a day here.
So, if its good access at an affordable price youre looking for, the City View Hotel London is likely to tick the right boxes for you. Appropriately positioned, this hotel is within distance of everything London has to offer.
