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.

Brilliantly located near Liverpool St station and within a short walk of popular Spitalfields. The compact apartments come fully equipped even down to dishwasher tablets. Everything you’d require for a short or long stay is provided for you and there is a Tesco within eyeshot for anything else you need. We were warmly greeted by every member of staff we... More

Stayed in the apartment and left some items behind I realised just after checkout and called reception immediately. I was advised to send an email. I was later advised the items were not on the room but advised they would contact us if they turned up. I have since contacted the reception twice and received no response. It totally ruined...

Spent 7 days in a 2 bedroom apartment which was cheaper than a hotel. Both bedrooms had queen beds. There was a safe. Full bathroom with washer/dryer. Full kitchen, so if you choose you can cook all your meals. We only had breakfast there. Big lounge/dining room. Staff were very helpful. 196 Bishopsgate was directly opposite Liverpool Street station with... More

It is very central directly on Liverpool Street. The apartment we had was spacious and nice. They have very nice bath amenities. The apartment was very clean, but ours faced Liverpool Street and was therefore quiet loud during the nights. Currently the lift is under renovation and we were on the third floor, so it was a bit hard. At... More

We stayed 3 nights in 2 bedroom penthouse. 2 bathrooms, very spacious and clean. Loved that we could order shopping to be in the apartment on arrival - for a very reasonable £2 charge. We just ordered milk and basics, and as we arrived late we were glad we had. Will definitely stay here again. Opposite Liverpool Street station so... More

Space and comfort is as expected. Unfortunately the lift was under maintenance. However, special thanks to Carlos, Laura and the staff who helped us in locating us at the 1st floor, with our luggage and our baby stroller. Thanks to Carlos to who also allowed us to check out later as our flight was at night and we need to... More

We stayed at the penthouse apartment with 2 bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom and a lovely terrasse, with 4 chairs and a table so we could easily move outside. Lovely view.

196 Bishopsgate is a stone's throw from Liverpool Street station and very conveniently located for east London's edgy, hipster scene east of the City. My apartment could have accommodated three, and was very well appointed - with everything needed for a long term stay, including a fully equipped kitchen, washing machine, the lot. Everything was newly installed and finished to... More

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 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.
