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

We booked a 2 bed apartment for the evening of a wedding we were attending (we have a 2.5 year old and sharing a room is worse than hell!). We have used these apartment hotels a lot in Australia, where they do them properly. It has everything you need and is clean but it is SO tired and in need... More

Great location. Right next to Liverpool St station. Therefore ridiculously overpriced and frequented by overseas tourists. Two bed apartment was £270 for a night! You only get one bathroom for that. Safe broken. Doors all squeaking to ensure you wake everyone up. Sofas uncomfortable. Bishopsgate on a weekday evening is noisy so you need to be on a high floor.... More

Decent sized apartment units with well equipped kitchens. Bathroom was claustrophobic with way too much packed in (large tub, washer/ dryer etc). No ventilation in the washroom so was always like a sauna and also sink was strangely so high up that absolutely no kids can reach it (was even tough for somebody 5', 4"). The worst thing about these... More

My mother and I booked 3 rooms in this hotel for my wedding weekend as it was minutes away from our venue. On booking I explained that the massive penthouse booked for 2 nights was for me/my bridesmaids and even spoke to someone about potentially booking an extra mattress if it was required. We also booked a large studio for... More

I have just returned from a 2 night stay at 196 Bishopsgate and feel compelled to write a review. To say that it exceeded my expectations is an understatement. The apartment we had (an executive) was massive and absolutely everything was provided-down to a washing-machine and ironing board, to say nothing of a fully-equipped kitchen with dishwasher. It had free... More

If you need to be in the financial district (Bishopsgate/Liverpool street). The location is ideal. Also the accommodation is very functional for a longer stay. The staff are pleasant and the suites have everything you need. That's the good news. The downside is that there's nothing really pleasant about the accommodation .... its just OK.

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.
