The location is easy access to the underground. We had a quiet apartment, tastefully decorated, with good light from tall windows. A well-appointed full kitchen and Tesco just up the street for easy dining in, and we enjoyed the breakfast basket delivered every morning. The bed is comfortable as are the sofa and two dining chairs at a small table.... More

196 Bishopsgate was absolutely fantastic. Just returned to SF from a blissful 5 night stay at this place. I stayed in a executive 1 bedroom suite on the 4th Floor. Apartment was extremely clean, spacious and comfortable. Nice little kitchen with basic utensils and coffee/tea supplied. I bought groceries at the Tesco next door and enjoyed having a quiet breakfast... More

A great place to say when staying in London. Directly opposite. Liverpool Street station, with transport running every 5 minutes. We had a 2 bedroom apartment when we stayed last December. I could have lived in the apartment on a permanent basis. This is a great London base.

Very spacious studio apartment (will suit two people). Fully equipped apartment with kitchen and a laundry; modern decor. Comfortable bed. The down side is the very small bathroom which is also dimly lit. Apartment is also fully serviced (like a hotel). Great location with minutes to Liverpool St Station and buses outside the door.

Gave this serviced flat 4 stars primarily for the amount of space you receive and for the location. Directly across the street from Liverpool Street Station, with direct trains to Harwich International Port for cruises as well as the Underground. Plenty of buses right outside the door. Many restaurants in walking distance. A Prete a Mange right next door for... More

I booked this apartment for a 5 day business trip to London. It offers full hotel service like daily linen replacement and cleaning. I had a one bedroom apartment with a fully equipped kitchen and, for me important, a decent desk to work when I don't have meetings. The internet speed can be better. I would definitely go back here... More

This is a very good location. It is directly opposite Liverpool Street Station. Within walking distance, there is Tesco Supermarket, M&S and Boots.   When we first arrived, I was taken aback by the slimness of the building. The reception and the lounge were a surprisingly small area. So don't have guests there - there are no bathrooms for them.... More

Just across the street from Liverpool Street station and a block or 2 from the coach stop for 2 lines to Stansted. An easy, if long, Tube ride from Heathrow, too. So great for an overnight between planes. The facade and small lobby are not promising, but the flat was quite modern, bright, and cheery, spotless, just as in the... 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 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.
