We recently stayed 2 weeks (last week of August and first week of September 2014). Great place to stay with Liverpool Street Station (a main underground station) right across the street. Easy access to food, shops and tourist attractions. Wonderful neighborhood atmosphere. Leadenhall Market, Spitafield Market, Tower of London, London Bridge all nearby. Other attractions are only 5-15 minutes away... More

First off, let me say that we did like the hotel very much. When travelling with 3 children, it's always a challenge to find accommodations that work with our needs and budget---196 Bishopsgate fit the bill! We had a two bedroom apartment, that was spotlessly clean, with one bath and a living area/kitchen. Liverpool station was right across the street... More

I chose this on the basis of good reviews and pictures, and my own pictures are the same as the others. I also was able to find the location quickly and could take advantage of its being near the Liverpool station. The room did not disappoint with its unique design and cleanliness. But I actually did not need the kitchen... More

At nearly £200 per night for a 1 bedroom apartment, I expected better. Although the apartment was a good size, the bathroom was really small. The extractor fan didn't work so using the mirror was impossible after a shower. The tv in the bedroom was wall-mounted but not moveable, and due to its location in the corner of the room... More

Excellent location, very large rooms. Nice location, close to Liverpool Street St and Shoreditch. Lots of places to eat around. Close to Tesco and Boots. Can get a bit noise at night doe to it location but not too bad you are still able to sleep ;) Excellent view on busy street and office buildings around. I am glad I... More

The serviced apartment has everything, including toiletries, coffee, a washing and drying machine. The living and kitchen are quite large. It is really close to everything. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. We stayed for over a week. My only complaint is that I think we should not have been charged for the extra bed or there should be... More

We stayed for 1 week and enjoyed it immensely. Rooms are always cleaned to perfection. We left our dishwasher on while we went out with the intention being to off load it on our return. We were more than surprised this had been done when the room was being serviced. Beds very comfortable and bath robes comfy. Location great with... More

Perfect location for visiting London. Across the road from Liverpool Street Station with easy train access to Gatwick, Southend Stanstead and Heathrow airports. Close to Central London attractions, theatres etc. Comfortable rooms and well appointed. A little noisy at nights being close to bars. If you want real milk in your coffee then take your own as they only supply... More

Was a bit dubious at first about staying in an apartment but I was very pleasantly surprised. The opportunity to have a separate seating area and the ability to cook your own food means that you can really enjoy London as a family sharing your days experiences in comfortable surroundings rather than propped up on the end of a bed...

I stayed for 6 nights in a very comfortable and spacious apartment on the second floor. All rooms were very clean und I missed nothing. Reception and cleaning service were perfect. I enjoyed my stay. By the way: you find a lot of shops and restaurants around the apartment. Location is just a few steps away from Liverpool station to... More
