We had previously stayed in Fraser Suites Sydney and were very impressed. However, Fraser Residence Bishopsgate did not live up to our expectations. It was very small, dark and right above an all day breakfast club, which was noisy at times. It had no staff except for an afternoon receptionist who seemed much more interested in watching television that interacting... More

I came late sunday evening, when the reception was closed, but the self-checkin service was fab! Although, I had to both e-mail them and call them in advance before getting my instructions, which was a bit stressful. I was afraid to turn up in London without a place to sleep! The street where the hotel is, was closed for traffic,... More

Stayed here for a few nights last week, as it's very near where I was working in Exchange Sq. I've stayed in various hotels around Liverpool St / Shoreditch / Tower Hill over the last 6 months and this really stood out as a quiet place. It's in a courtyard off a small lane opposite Liverpool St Station. Very generous... More

I stayed here on a work trip for 2 weeks in May. Despite the hussle and noise of bishopsgate, with the shops, pubs and Liverpool St station, the apartment was quiet. I had masses of space in my 1 bedroom appartment, and felt quite safe with the security features. Comfortable bed, hot shower and a full range of cable channels... More

My global travels take me to many cities, including London. I enjoy staying in Fraser properties. Fraser Bishopsgate is my choice for London because the property is within blocks of my office which is so convenient. The location is close to Liverpool station to get around London easily and Spitifields Market offers many restaurants and shopping. My planned arrival time... More

We stayed here for 6 nights and were sad to leave. The flat was stylish and sleek and quiet. Although the reception is only manned from 1 to 9, they give you an emergency number to call if you need to. The flat was comfortable and a very pleasant place to stay. The only downside we could see was that... More

Great location, close to Liverpool Street station which made getting around easy. Less than 5 minutes walk to Spitalfields and about 20 minutes to the Tower of London. The amenities were nice. It's great to have a kitchen and cookware, washer/dryer, etc. when staying for 3 months like I was. Housekeeping once a week was helpful, and staff was always... More

I stayed here for just one night but I really wish it was longer. The service was amazing from start to finish. All communication was great and the staff were especially helpful answering any questions I had prior and during my stay. The concierge at Bishopsgate was so accomodating it made my stay extra special . Most of the parking... More

We booked it to spend the weekend and we loved it! The apartment was spacious and had everything we could possibly need.. It is only 5min to Liverpool Street station and to Spitalfields Market, Old Street and Shoreditch are also walking distance.

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighborhood Profile
Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
