“Good Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

I stayed here for a long weekend. They are situated very well for transport links, bus practically right outside and underground within easy walking distance.
The apartment we were put in was on the third floor to the rear. No noise, very clean and spacious. The rooms were very clean and looked to have been decorated fairly recently. There was everything you would need from washer/dryer, fridge and dishwasher.
Also provided iron, hairdryer and safe.
There is a local shop across the road for anything you might need.
Staff were friendly and helpful with out queries.
All in all I would recommend these if you are going to London and I would go back here to stay again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Just stayed in Citadines St Mark's for a weekend in London.

Good Points: Great location for our stay and spacious, comfortable and clean for 3 people sharing. Our room was ready early and we could check in immediately. Great to have a proper kitchen and with a couple of convenience stores literally over the road, easy to get in supplies. Bed was really comfy and plenty of hanging space in wardrobe. Wi-fi was easy to connect to and reliable and 12 noon checkout is generous.

Bad Points: Nowhere near as plush and luxurious as the photos would lead you to believe. Our flat was desperately in need of a lick of paint and the bathrooms needed refreshing. The worst thing was the smell of stale smoke....not good for a no smoking complex and not helped by the fact that the windows would not open. Finally for this price I would expect luxury towels and bath sheets, not small bath towels.

Overall comfortable stay but lots of easy fixes here that would raise the standards to make it really a luxury option.

Good location and good accommodation near to facilities and transport. Comfortable beds and spacious if you have a family. Walkable distance to underground, restaurants etc and ideal base for most attractions. Would recommend and would revisit.

Ok, these apartments are pretty good. The good points are: close to cafes, pubs and restaurants and all forms of public transport with a couple of little delicatessens over the road. The staff are polite and very helpful, the rooms are a decent size with TV, reasonable wifi, washer/dryer and all the cooking utensils required to look after yourself including an oven and hot tops. The beds are quite comfortable and the pillows are Ok. There is a safe within the apartment which we found useful.
The fridge is a good size with a freezer compartment and easily big enough for all sorts of food. As with all apartments just understand that servicing each apartment is not carried out on a daily basis and if you need a change of towels or linen etc you must ask at reception. Because these apartments are on a busy road there is a little bit of noise, not enough to make life uncomfortable but enough to let you know you are still in suburbia.
The bad points: No air con, just some fans and you have to ask for these at reception. Also the washer/dryer isn't that straight forward to use so make sure you ask for operating details upon arrival.
Apart from those small points there's not much else wrong with these apartments and I would definitely stay here again if I ever returned to London and I would recommend same to a friend.

Room Tip: Maybe try and get a room at the rear of the premises.

Stayed in 2 bedroom apartment for our stay. Very happy with unit. Close to tube, supermarkets, buses. No a/c so on hot nights had to have windows open. Noisy streets with cars, sirens etc. would recommend staying here as unit sure beats staying in a hotel.

We chose this hotel because the price for a 2 separate bed/bath apt. unit was better than any hotel in London (at the time). Traveling with 2 grown daughters,this worked out wonderfully. The location was a little north of the main tourist spots ,but it gave you a feel for everyday London. Getting the bus in front of the hotel or the tube 5 min down the street (in both directions...Angel to the west and Old Street to the east), made our day trips easy. There were a few issues with the room but nothing major and the staff fixed everything within a day. There was always someone on the desk (24/7) and always ready with answers to our questions. They even gave us a local tourism map that gave 20% off quite a few restaurants and attractions! We had a room on the 2cd floor in the back so not so much noise from the street, but it is a busy neighborhood so don't expect it to be quiet at night (we did have the windows open because of the 80F temps...no AC here). As far as supplies if you're staying for a while, there is everything you could need within a 5 min walk. We would definitely return here and recommend it to all. Staff was great and there was room to spread out and relax at the end of the day.

Room Tip: When you book a room ,tell the staff exactly what you need (size and how much noise) all the rooms a...
