My family and I stayed here for 5 nights at the end of June and we left very impressed with the service, quality of the room and location. This is an ideal option for families who are needing more space and amenities than a regular hotel can offer. The kitchen facilities are fantastic and a great alternative if you don't... More

Booked a 1-room apartment for 3 days but was upgraded to 2-bedroom apartment facing the Liverpool Street station. Very spacious apartment and room with all the required facilities and friendly staff, making sure that you feel at home. It was a 5-min walking distance to the office that I was going, hence a perfect place to stay for those who... More

First the positives. The friendly reception staff, the location opposite Liverpool st station, supermarkets, shops etc all close by. This does mean the street facing apartments experience a bit of city noise but this is part of central big city living. Not a negative aspect for us. The apartments have been refurbished since we last stayed and there is everything... More

I enjoyed my stay at Bishopsgate. The room was comfortable. I asked for a room away from the street as I read the street side could be noisy and I was accommodated. I was also able to check in early which was great because we arrived early in the morning. Having a kitchen was great as I have to eat... More

Booked this hotel on the basis of reviews - had a confirmed booking. Hotel claimed to know nothing about it and they were full. Arrogant and unhelpful receptionist. Would never use this hotel again - even if it were free. Untrustworthy.

If you need to be in the city mid week and don't want to pay the city hotel prices this is a good choice and excellent value for money. The apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped. The staff were friendly and helpful. Apart from the early morning deliveries typical in any busy city it was also quiet. This is... More

We had a wonderful stay, the staff were attentive and helpful, they even went above and beyond the call of duty to print my boarding pass and slipped it under the door. Location perfect. Highly recommend this hotel to friends from Australia and will stay again.

The location was great as most of the reviews I read. The Liverpool station (which is a large tube station) will get you everywhere. The unit was very quiet and felt like we had a little flat of our own in London! The kitchen had everything to cook with- the nearest TESCO is 1 min walk, and you can find... More
