Lift was out for full stay and my room was on 3rd floor 6 flights up and staff were clueless when asked about when it would be working. Room was clean tidy but small and only had one comfy sitting chair too bad if there were two of you ! Only thing in its favour is location across from Liverpool... More

I used this hotel for a business trip. It is well located and good to reach by subway from the airports. The check in was smooth and sympatic. I was looking for a hotel room which should be around that location at an affordable price. For this my room was really huge, it even had a kitchen! It was all... More

We had a two bedroomed, upper floor apartment, so it wasn't noisy. However, there are 6 steps down to the living area and NO handrail. On the first night, going to the bathroom, I missed the bottom step and ended on the floor. Only a big bruise, but as a sufferer of osteoporosis, it could have been a break.Please add... More

We stayed in a well-maintained and spacious two-bedroom flat. Very lovely and the cleaning staff was very thorough. Extremely convenient with an entrance to Liverpool Street Station across the street and a grocery store less than a block away. We enjoyed our stay and would come back again! A brief note: my apartment's living room fronted the main street so... More

Two couples stayed - the fellas went to the FA cup final whilst us girls did the Ladies wot lunch thing. We like a bit of luxury and have tried other Hotels nearby. This excelled them all by a long way. The location by Liverpool Street could not be better especially with Old Spitalfields Market just around the corner. Amazing... More

Stayed her for a long weekend as part of a site seeing trip to London. I liked the location but it did get a bit quieter on the Sunday as lot of restaurants in immediate vicinity was closed. But it was a short walk from brick lane so that was no big deal. Apartment was spacious and well equipped. The... More

Visited the hotel In May for a summit near by. Was surprised to find out that it was an apartment and not a room. The flat was quite big with all the facilities needed: frig, dishwasher, washing machine etc... Breakfast was served in a basket near the door. Main advantage is that it's located near the Liverpool station. Main drawbacks... More

Location is perfect if you wish to stay near Liverpool station. Not much to see around but underground station is just over the street. Standart apartment is good for couple or couple with kid. I made all my meals myself- kitchen is well equipped.

A little mistake I made in the booking was handled quickly and kindly. Down the street is a supermarket and a pharmacy. Many restaurants and coffee shops. Reasonably priced for... 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.
