City Hotel first opened in 1997 in a converted mill in the heart of, what was then, London’s fashion district.
The area has evolved massively since those days and is now one of the most sought after areas to stay in London.
Brick Lane, upon which the hotel stands (Osborn Street is the south end of Brick Lane) is London’s curry capital.

The street is famed for its amazing graffiti, restaurants, night life and, best of all, Sunday markets.
The hotel is also minutes from Petticoat Lane, London’s historic clothing market; Columbia Road Flower Market and Spitalfields Market for handmade clothing, crafts and food.
