First time I've used serviced apartments and I'm very impressed. Stayed here on a Saturday night. Lovely apartment, very clean. bed was very comfortable. Apartment was quiet, plenty of space and small courtyard area. Would certainly recommend and worked out cheaper than an equivalent star rated hotel in same vicinity.

We stayed at 196 Bishopsgate just under 1 week and was ideal for what we needed. Location is perfect for those needing to be located in East London. But if not its across the road from the train stations and heaps of buses to take you where you need to go. Our room was big and very clean. The bed... More

Happy to see the huge space available: perfect for a corporate trip, or so I thought to myself. But I had asked for a room at the back, I got one at the front. And the front is incedibly noisy even with ear plugs I could hear the people yelling (there is a pub right next to the entrance of... More

Booked a studio apartment for 5 day business trip. It was spacious with good kitchen and decent shower and also very quiet, facing towards the back of the building. But that also meant it was completely overlooked by apartments on higher floors which was not so great and I didn't feel comfortable there without the blinds being down. On arrival,... More

I have stayed in these apartments numerous times over the past 5 years but I must say they are looking a bit tired now. Firstly the location is great for transport links and local attractions.

Location is excellent. Directly opposite Liverpool Street with links all around London. Rooms are spacious. We stayed in executive apartment, which is very nice and spacious.

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.

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhoods. 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 neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of 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.
