After scouring the 'last minute' websites, I stumbled upon 'The Writers', serviced apartments. Having never stayed in a serviced apartment I was dubious at what to expect.
I was visiting London with my partner and his parents were joining us from the north. I booked a 2 bedroom duplex apartment for £289 for a Saturday night. I received a call from the manager the day after explaining that there had been a small mistake, and that the 2 bedroomed apartment was no longer available - however, he offered my 2 one-bedroomed apartments for the same price.
'The Writers' was easy to find, located within a hundred meters of Liverpool Street station.
I was impressed; the duty manager was very pleasant and checked us in swiftly. The two apartments were immaculate, well designed and apportioned, with fully stocked kitchens, including dishwasher, washing machine, iron and boards. Bathrooms were of a very high quality and furnished with 'The White Company' toiletries. Flat screen tv's in both the lounge and bedroom, and a Sony Playstation and iPod docking hi-fi in the lounge.
Check out at 10am, was a little early compared to hotels, but not an issue, as there is a great breakfast place just to the left of the building called 'The Breakfast Club' - I cannot rate this higher, great food!
All in all, a great apartment with features matching a 4/5 star hotel. Will definitely be staying again when in the City.
