This apartment was even better than advertised. It is literally a 2 minute walk from Liverpool Street Station, so you have easy access to the Tube. More important for us, we had an early flight from Stansted Airport on Monday morning, and the Stansted Express leaves early from Liverpool Station on Mondays, so we were able to walk to the...

Only stayed here for one night but an excellent central location. Comfortable room and bed. Kitchen was not used but could be a bonus if staying for longer periods. Right next to Liverpool Street stations and tube plus loads of eateries close by. Reception staff all friendly.

Absolutely the best way to stay the convenience of a horel reception with the feel of your own home. Wont bother staying in a hotel again as you can hang out with friends. Clean well presented and reasonably priced.

We arrived several hours delayed into London so I was very thankful this hotel was so conveniently located to Liverpool station, which is why we stayed here instead of somewhere cheaper. The front desk is always manned so we had no problems with such a late check-in. This would have been a nice place to stay if we were in... More

We had a two bedroom apartment in the fifth floor. Furniture and beds were comfortable. As other have mentioned the place feels a bit claustrophobic since the doors are heavy and automatically close and the bathroom is tiny. In our case we were in apt 506. The living area and one of the bed rooms had air conditioning but the... More

We had a room with a kitchen, den, and bedroom. All was wonderful. But the air conditioning is not great, but it sufficed. Staff was friendly. Room was clean and location to the tube station was perfect! Just across the street from Liverpool station.

Spent 2 nights in an 2 bed apartment. There were 5 of us so we had a camp bed aswell. The location is fine although, for those who don't know the area, Liverpool Street station area can be a bit busy, dirty and crowded, particularly on a night, and feels unsafe. There are areas in London that feel safer although... More

We have stayed here on three separate occasions and have loved it every time. It is close to everything and the Liverpool Street Station is right across the street. Among the rooms, it features two penthouse suites that are two stories high and have gorgeous views of the street below. Plus one of the penthouses has a private garden terrace... 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.
