I would highly recommend staying at 196 Bishops Gate. This was our third time in London, and my wife an I stayed here for three nights, Friday, Saturday and Sunday September 17th, 18th and 19th 2010. The staff were helpful and friendly, especially Pablo, who we think worked the 3 pm -11 pm shift on the weekend we were there.
Pablo went out of his way to make sure our stay was comfortable, and he was very, very helpful and knowledgable when we had questions regarding travelling through the city.
The location of 196 Bishops Gate is great as (everybody mentions) you are right across the street from Liverpool Street Station (meaning: easy access to all of London). The Tesco supermarket is a less than a minute walk down the road, and it is open late, so no problem stocking the fridge. I felt very safe in the immediate neighborhood as the POLICE STATION is on the same side of the road, and less than 20 seconds walk from the front door!
The room itself was clean and comfortable, with a small safe for our personal belongings (tickets, passports ect.). It is wonderful when you are travelling from hotel to hotel (as we were in France prior to arriving in London) and then arrive at 196 Bishops Gate and you now have use of a Refridgerator/Microwave/Diswasher/Washer-Dryer/Sink Pots & Pans, ect. All the comforts of home! In short - A STAY HERE IS WAY BETTER THAN A HOTEL!
In summary: I highly recommend this hotel and I won't even think twice about where to stay the next time I'm in London.
