Chose this apartment as it was close to Spitalfield Market which we wanted to visit. Found it was also close to a Tesco supermarket and several eateries. Better still it was just across the road from Liverpool Station and tube which meant easy access to everything from Harrods to the West end theatres. The apartment ( 1 bedroom executive) was...

Accommodations were perfect for our family of 5 - kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a twin bed placed in the large living room. Decor is modern and comfortable. We changed rooms due to a problem with the air conditioning. The staff here are extremely pleasant, helpful and accommodating - and the room change was no problem. Our first room was on... More

I booked an executive studio here and stayed there for 2 nights before checking out for the weekend and then back in for 6 further nights. There were a few different people at reception during my stay and always the service was very professional and polite. I have a feeling there is quite a lot of variety of rooms and... More

I've been working part time in London for the past year or so and tried many hotels and apartments in the City of London. My favourite is 196 Bishopsgate. The accommodation is excellent with a real homely feeling and the proximity to amenities and public transport outstanding. The only downside is that occasionally it's just priced too highly for my...

The location is easy access to the underground. We had a quiet apartment, tastefully decorated, with good light from tall windows. A well-appointed full kitchen and Tesco just up the street for easy dining in, and we enjoyed the breakfast basket delivered every morning. The bed is comfortable as are the sofa and two dining chairs at a small table.... More

196 Bishopsgate was absolutely fantastic. Just returned to SF from a blissful 5 night stay at this place. I stayed in a executive 1 bedroom suite on the 4th Floor. Apartment was extremely clean, spacious and comfortable. Nice little kitchen with basic utensils and coffee/tea supplied. I bought groceries at the Tesco next door and enjoyed having a quiet breakfast... More

A great place to say when staying in London. Directly opposite. Liverpool Street station, with transport running every 5 minutes. We had a 2 bedroom apartment when we stayed last December. I could have lived in the apartment on a permanent basis. This is a great London base.

Very spacious studio apartment (will suit two people). Fully equipped apartment with kitchen and a laundry; modern decor. Comfortable bed. The down side is the very small bathroom which is also dimly lit. Apartment is also fully serviced (like a hotel). Great location with minutes to Liverpool St Station and buses outside the door.

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.
