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,...

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. I stayed for 2 nights this time and was extremely disappointed when I returned back the second day to find neither of my key cards...

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. Would be excellent for a slightly longer stay. Beds are comfortable. Penthouse is very nice too as my friends stayed there. The staff are a bit difficult with letting people who are not on...

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.

We arrived several hours delayed into London so I was very thankful this hotel was so conveniently located to Liverpool station, which is why we stayed here instead of somewhere cheaper. The front desk is always manned so we had no problems with such a late check-in. This would have been a nice place to stay if we were in...

We had a two bedroom apartment in the fifth floor. Furniture and beds were comfortable. As other have mentioned the place feels a bit claustrophobic since the doors are heavy and automatically close and the bathroom is tiny. In our case we were in apt 506. The living area and one of the bed rooms had air conditioning but the...

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.
