Man oh Man was I wrong, I was upgraded from a Studio apartment to an Exec Studio which surprisingly had a little terrance where I had my late evening glass of wine. The Apartment was fully...

This place occupies a busy location right opposite the tube station and in the middle of everything. The reception area is very small leading to the elevator area that takes you to your floor. The apartment we booked was overlooking the busy road and the windows could not retain the noises of the road though. However the apartment was simply...

Good hotel in a good location, not too noisy. It's walking distance from Liverpool street station so it's easy to jump on the tube and get around london that way. Staff were friendly and the rooms are great. There's a supermarket just down the road about 3 mins walk.

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.
