We booked to stay here last minute as we needed to be near Liverpool Street Station. The apartments are perfectly placed for working in the City, are well-equipped with dishwasher/washing machine/cooker etc. The bathroom was small but clean (shower only) and there is a sofa, kitchen table and desk. It was great for the two of us for one night...

The apartment was nice, clean and big with a well equipped kitchen. It's in a great location where from you can reach central London. My view was a bit disappointing on a dirty backyard of a restaurant or bar.

Situated a stone's throw from Liverpool Street Station, the apartment was amazing. I was upgraded to a two bedroom apartment which was massive. I would have rated this a five star if not that the kettle wasn't working in my bedroom. I did leave a message on the concierge voice mail but no-one got back to me or replaced it....

My friend and I had an enjoyable stay at this hotel. We booked one of the balcony suites for around £250/night. It was spacious, well lit and had a huge range of amenities. It was spotless and very well kept. Unfortunately there seemed to be a rather musky smell hanging around. This was rectified by aerating the room. The staff...

Was in December for business trip in December of 2016, The apartment was spacious, well furnished and in a great location with restaurants and shops close by. You can walk to many main attractions. The doors and wines and multicultural diversity made it fun to try new delicacies.

A group of 4 of us stayed here to explore Shoreditch, Brick Lane and area. One of the double beds was separated for us so that one of the 2 bedrooms had 2 singles. We requested an early check in which was duly accommodation. Luggage was looked after in the morning of arrival and the afternoon of departure. The staff...

Having two bedrooms and living room allowed family members to get rest without being disturbed by others. Nice having a full-size fridge, stove/oven. Across the street from Liverpool Station was extremely convenient.

I visited London for a work event and made it a long weekend. An awards dinner at the ETC venues opposite 196 Bishopsgate followed by a day in London with my partner and a trip up to the view in the Shard. We arrived at the apartment early and the kindly took our bags in so we could go and...

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.

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.
