Stayed here whilst down for the London Marathon for a two night stay 12th & 13th April, Room 210. We wanted a self catering place given all the complexities of catering for a marathon runner !. The apartments are really convenient - just across Bishopsgate from Liverpool St railway station & Underground. Plenty of shops, restaurants & take aways nearby... More

Just got home from a weekend in London which I stayed at 196 Bishopsgate. Good rooms and service at the hotel. Bad thing was that the windows didn't keep silence out for room 109 from the bar outside.

Always prefer this hotel over other options around Liverpool street.... Very convenient location, good service, nice rates.....Just ask the concierge to turn on the heater during cold periods - it can get really cold in the room........

This is probably the 8th time I've stayed here over the past 6 years and the pluses are still pluses, but the minuses continue to grow. On the plus side, the location can't be beat, the neighbourhood Tesco is a real plus, the size of the rooms are terrific, the full kitchen is excellent and the internet is free and... More

I am recommending 196 Bishopsgate to colleagues and friends visiting London. For business trips, the location is great: right in the City, close proximity to business meeting and it offers a nice oasis between meetings (with wireless connection and the spaciousness of a flat, it is a good place for catching up on business correspondence). It makes no sense to... More

I stayed here in April 2013 and have booked again in August 2014. It is great value and spacious by London standards. The location is very convenient being opposite Liverpool St Station with plenty of food outlets close by.

These apartments have a great location, just in front of the Liverpool station. So, metro, trains and many stores are right there, making it quite convenient. In the opposite direction (the area behind the apartments) there are many options on Indian restaurants; and not so far it's possible to take the night tour about the Jack the ripper's history. My...

We've stayed twice, so we tried 2 flats. The flats are big with 2 separate rooms, a nice bathroom, an equipped kitchen, 2 (or 3) TVs, it is very comfortable. It is across from Liverpool Street station (metro and train), what is very convenient. There is a good supermarket very close to the flat, a few restaurants, pubs, and fast... More

The hotel seems unable to control large rowdy groups that make their way into apartments for parties. After being kept awake by a loud party until 1 am on a Friday night, I'm about to experience the same again the following night. Security cameras don't exist and there's little monitoring of who comes and goes. Whilst clean and in a... More
