Rather disappointing. The room was clean enough. But it was directly opposite Liverpool st station. The curtains and blinds were inadequate in keeping out the lights from outside. And the noise from the street outside was deafening. This latter is hard for a hotel to manage of course, but I would have expected rather better sound proofing. I am a sound sleeper normally, but was woken up probably 5 times during this stay. Above all, please get blinds / curtains that block out the light!

Basic but decent enough apartment. Rooms a little tired and could do with being updated. Well placed for the City. I think in "normal" times might be a bit noisy with road noise and the hustle and bustle of the City.

Very well located in the City of London with access to main line train station and buses. Apartment was very clean and well appointed in all rooms, apart from the bathroom, which was very niche. The staff was polite and professional.

A very good experience overall. I felt very safe and secure traveling and staying on my own. Check in and check out are rapid and efficient (I got all the info that I needed and did not have to ask twice for the invoice to be sent by email). Very quiet and good amenities. This only down side for me was the bedding. I found the mattress excellent, but the pillows were a bit firm for my taste. This is only a personal preference and ended up happily sleeping without. Now on my favourite places to stay list for work trips!

Located literarly less than 200 meters from the front gate of Liverpool Street station, this is very convenient place to and from Stansted airport etc, and in a lively area. The apartments are big, and do have all the usual facilities for self catering. The kitchen is generally well equipped, although in our apartment there was no frying pan..!! The floor can be pretty cold, and they have not kept any in-room slippers etc - very irritating. The bed mattress is good and firm, but the bed design is a bit clumsy with a iron frame on one side of the bed (see photo). And if you expect some nice view from the window, forget it - at best you will see some other roof tops of the backside of buildings. Overall, recommended for location.

Stayed in an Executive Studio room- great location, clean (albeit freezing) and slightly dated (excluding the bathroom). A nice apartment; a bit overpriced for what it is but nice nonetheless; the price reflections the central location. There are much nicer 4/5* hotels nearby for not much more in cost per evening.

Really impressed with this studio apartment- by far yet the best of its kind in London and very convenient for my 2-day conference right in Bishopsgate. Literally adjacent to Liverpool Street station too - stay in the back of the block very quiet. Highly recommended.

196 Bishopsgate has good service personnel at the front desk, who are always ready to help at all times of the day. It is well located near the Liverpool Station, and has a Pret sandwich store nearby, along with a Tesco, which helps you get meals till 12 pm. The apartment itself is spacious and I enjoyed the space. This place does not have a gym, but who needs a gym when you can walk around London :).
