Gave this serviced flat 4 stars primarily for the amount of space you receive and for the location. Directly across the street from Liverpool Street Station, with direct trains to Harwich International Port for cruises as well as the Underground. Plenty of buses right outside the door. Many restaurants in walking distance. A Prete a Mange right next door for... More

I booked this apartment for a 5 day business trip to London. It offers full hotel service like daily linen replacement and cleaning. I had a one bedroom apartment with a fully equipped kitchen and, for me important, a decent desk to work when I don't have meetings. The internet speed can be better. I would definitely go back here... More

This is a very good location. It is directly opposite Liverpool Street Station. Within walking distance, there is Tesco Supermarket, M&S and Boots.   When we first arrived, I was taken aback by the slimness of the building. The reception and the lounge were a surprisingly small area. So don't have guests there - there are no bathrooms for them.... More

Just across the street from Liverpool Street station and a block or 2 from the coach stop for 2 lines to Stansted. An easy, if long, Tube ride from Heathrow, too. So great for an overnight between planes. The facade and small lobby are not promising, but the flat was quite modern, bright, and cheery, spotless, just as in the... More

196 Bishopsgate are serviced apartments just opposite Liverpool Street Station. Very convenient if you're flying to/from Stansted as the Stansted Express Train departs from Liverpool Street Station. Our apartment for two people was very spacious and was equipped with fridge, oven, hob, microwave, washing machine and dryer, iron and ironing board and two TVs. It was impeccably clean. Wifi was...

196 Bishopsgate is very conveniently located next to Liverpool Station. Perfect if you arrive with the Standsted Express. Our penthouse apartment had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a living and a dining area at a quite reasonable price. There is a Tesco's next door and Eastern London is just around the corner. That was our second stay... More

The hotel was okay, but the elevator was broken for half of my stay, so I had to go up the stairs to the 4th floor 10 times a day. Nevertheless, the location was great with a multitude of restaurants all around, and Liverpool Street station just across the road from the hotel. The hotel would be a great pick... More

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
