“An ideal home-like base for exploring London with kids”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

The apartements in the former 19th century St.Marks Hospital are spacious and well furnished. For a 5 day's trip to expore London with our kids of 9 and 12 years of age, we booked a 2- bedroom apartement (with 2 bathrooms). The location, quite near Angel Underground, was ideal for traveling around. The road (City Road) is quite busy. A relevant busstop is nearly at the doorstep.
In the area, lots of restaurants are at walking distance.
The apartement was huge, with a fully equiped kitchen (including dishwasher tablets).
So between stroling around whole day and having dinner we had plenty of space to relax and have a drink or a bite.
Service was fine, remembering that we knew beforehand that there is not a daily cleaning service. But on request, a new set of towels was quickly provided.
The reception is available 24/7 giving it a safe and hotel-like feeling rathter than an apartement.
The price was comparable to 2 standard (small) rooms in an average 3 start hotel.

For visitors to London there could not be a place more convenient to the main attractions of the city - Two minutes to the right to the Angel Station and two minutes to the right to upper High street for restaurants, bars. There are two tube stations in between the St. Mark`s to walk. Our room was spacious and clean, the kitchen was well equipped for preparation of our own meals when required. Is certainly good valute for the money than somewhere out to the centre London. The location was worth every extra dollar. To be able to stroll down to centrale London like Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben. I highly recommend St. Mark`s for long and short stay. Customer service excellent, friendly staff.

We stay at Citadines St Marks regularly for business trips to London. It is in a great location, convenient for the City Of London and also for restaurants and shops (a short walk from Angel, Islington and Upper Street in one direction, and from Old Street and Barbican in the other). The room prices are very good value. The rooms are large and comfortable with well-equipped kitchenettes and wi-fi. Above all, the staff are first class - friendly, professional and helpful. They are always ready to help with any inquiry.

We stayed here for three nights in September. The apartment was extremely large and spacious with two large bedrooms and two full ensuites. The kitchen and living room were great for a larger group.

The staff were very helpful. the location is great - only about 5 mins to tube.

We stayed here (in Apt 70 on 3rd Floor) for one night with family visiting from South Africa in late September. Great location - a stone's throw from Angel Tube Station and the bus stop. Convenience store over the road. Friendly and efficient service from the hotel staff. Apartment was huge, extremely well kitted out with very comfy beds. Excellent value for money. Would definitely stay here again for future visits to London.

I stayed here for a long weekend. They are situated very well for transport links, bus practically right outside and underground within easy walking distance.
The apartment we were put in was on the third floor to the rear. No noise, very clean and spacious. The rooms were very clean and looked to have been decorated fairly recently. There was everything you would need from washer/dryer, fridge and dishwasher.
Also provided iron, hairdryer and safe.
There is a local shop across the road for anything you might need.
Staff were friendly and helpful with out queries.
All in all I would recommend these if you are going to London and I would go back here to stay again.

Just stayed in Citadines St Mark's for a weekend in London.

Good Points: Great location for our stay and spacious, comfortable and clean for 3 people sharing. Our room was ready early and we could check in immediately. Great to have a proper kitchen and with a couple of convenience stores literally over the road, easy to get in supplies. Bed was really comfy and plenty of hanging space in wardrobe. Wi-fi was easy to connect to and reliable and 12 noon checkout is generous.

Bad Points: Nowhere near as plush and luxurious as the photos would lead you to believe. Our flat was desperately in need of a lick of paint and the bathrooms needed refreshing. The worst thing was the smell of stale smoke....not good for a no smoking complex and not helped by the fact that the windows would not open. Finally for this price I would expect luxury towels and bath sheets, not small bath towels.

Overall comfortable stay but lots of easy fixes here that would raise the standards to make it really a luxury option.
