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

Stayed here with our family of 5. Great apartment and a wonderful base for our 4 day stay in London. Great apartment, friendly staff. Only downside was the elevator wasn't working. Would stay here again. Right across the road from the Underground and plenty of bus stations so this made a perfect place for us to stay on our first... More

This is very atypical place to stay in London. It is a converted building into a number of well furbished apartments. I was staying alone in a one bedroom apartment with great bed, very nice bathroom and great kitchen. Not likely to London, it was very spacy.

It is nice to read the advantages that this service apartment has to offer in terms of units size and comfort, service from 24 hours manned reception and its location to be convenience for both, the City and the West End.

We just returned after a two night weekend stay to celebrate our daughter's 16th birthday. We arrived around 3pm on Friday to a friendly welcome and were allocated Apartment 101 on the first floor. The apartment is a two bed, very well appointed with large windows overlooking Bishopsgate and the entrance to Liverpool Street station. The apartment was beautifully clean... More

this apartment had everything you could wish for. it is opposite Liverpool Street station, blink and you would miss it. It is tucked away two doors down from the tesco shop. Sadly the view out of the window was an office block and if we had opened the windows, i am sure we could have touched hands.

Just had a gorgeous meal at this hotel. From starter to desert it was spot on! Hazel and her team were so welcoming will definitely come back and stay over next time. If you want a bit of very classy food in a nice relaxed atmosphere you will love it here.

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.
