    Perfect location, transportations very close to the hotel, appartement was well equiped

    kind of " old" bad smell in the corridor of the hotel which is not very nice, a bit of colour should be added in the appartment

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    I was upgraded on arrival. Location is great. Next to Liverpool station. Tesco is next door. Friendly staff, apartment was quite good. Heating/cooling devices are working effectively. Kitchen fully equipped with essentials. Living room and bedroom furniture are somehow new.

    Could hear the noise from outside

    I really liked the style and layout of the apartment and it felt fresh and airy

    Location location location !

    Shower was faulty mildly and with the enclosed toilet a bit tight with a couple and two teenagers fortunately boys front desk were helpful and welcoming the room was fine but there was no coffee plunger and a little light on kitchen facilities for a 2 bedroom suite the hall on the 1st floor had a musty smell but our room was fine so I made no complaint it would not stop me staying again and the location is such a good point

  • Family with children
    8.8

    It is across from a rail station. The staff were pleasant and accommodating.

    The washer-dryer was damaged, and the window blind would not close.

    Location

    I imagined our room would be alot nicer from the pictures.

  • Single
    7.4

    They allowed some builders to start work at 7.30am in the morning. So not cool.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    Excellent location - just across the road from Liverpool St station where there are 4 tube lines, including the Central and Circle lines, so access to the city is very easy. All of the Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The apartment was spotless, and included all the faciities you would require; including a full kitchen, TV, DVD and CD players, WI-FI, plenty of hanging space, safe, hair-dryer and iron. If you are in the mood for cooking, there are plenty of supermarkets close by. Spitalfields Market is just a 5 minute walk away, where there are nice places to eat, and an interesting market at weekends.

    We had a 2 bedroom apartment for 4 people. The individual rooms were small; the bathroom was tiny, and the living space was small for 4 people (but would be OK for 2), and only had a two seater couch.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Lots of space; well appointed; very convenient for our City function.

    bathroom lights very slow to power up and provide good lighting

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    The apartment size and facilities and closeness to tube and shops.

    The beds were quite uncomfortable, the blinds are very poor they let the light in from 5am!!! The cleaners smoke outside your window very loudly.

  • Single
    6.2

    Location is good, next to Spitafield Market and Liverpool Station.

    It needs a good refurbishing, beds are horrible and kitchen needs to be fixed. Apparently they are working on some apartments but drilling starts at 7:30 am...

  • Couple
    10.0

    Great location, excellent room!

    The lift could do with improving :-)

  • Couple
    7.8

    Location is excellent, about five minutes walk from Liverpool street station. Clean, comfortable and staff were friendly and helpful. It's really a good deal considering the location was quite central. Since Tesco is pretty close and kitchenware is sufficient, eat in room is really a option,

  • Couple
    9.6

    Wonderful room, got upgraded! Great location really good value. Very good quality apartment.

    Lift is not good, very slow and small. Bathroom amenities do not match the level of the rooms.

  • Single
    5.4

    Convenience of the location

    I cancelled the 2nd nights stay at checkin - but I am not sure if I have been charged for this as the hotel seemed uncertain as to whether their reservations dept had cancelled this with Booked.net Bedroom area was really too small compared to the kitchen/lounge area and the shower door did not close
