    Excellent location, lovely apartment, very helpful and friendly staff. The perfect choice for spending time in the city for work or cultural events.

    Apartments for double occupancy should have queen or king size beds.

  • Family with children
    8.8

    Excellent location, at the side of the train and underground station. Apartment with kitchen, dish-washing, wash-machine, etc, and also with full hotel services. Very nice and helpfull staff.

    No air conditioning in the bedrooms, only in the living room.

  • Single

    Staff were courteous, friendly and helpful. The apartment was of a high specification, clean and well presented. It felt spacious, well designed, thoughtfully decorated.

    Central location, lively part of London, close to major station and Market, friendly staff, quiet, well appointed, child friendly.

    Very Modern, and comfortable furnishings. Excellent and friendly staff. Stayed there as an overnight stop while traveling through Europe. Would definitely consider staying there again.

    location

    haphazard layout, lifts do not stop on floors where rooms are; reception cramped and overworked; no curtains on room windows

  • Single
    6.4

    As this was a business trip the location was ideal as it was only 5 mins walk from where the course was being held that I was on. Also there were lots of amenities such as resturants on the doorstep.

    The bathroom in the room was very small. Also this aside the light for it was not very powerful and so the room was still very dark even in the daytime because there was no window. Also the shower was poor for the price of the hotel a bit of an out of date arrangement via the taps and not very powerful at all. I also was not impressed that when I arrived to check in that in the middle of serving me the phone rang and the receptionist answered it and then ignored me for 5 mins while he dealt with the call.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    The location was excellent. The staff were very friendly helpful and accommodating. The apartment was a very generous size and had everything you could possibly need in it. We would definately stay there again.

    As our apt was on the 1st floor the music from the bar next door was loud on the Friday night, although it did stop at 2am. Also as we were a family with 2 adults and 2 childeren in their late teens( a girl and a boy) I found the fact that both bedrooms had double beds very inconvenient, and caused a bit of a problem with sleeping arrangements. I would suggest that it would bettter to have some 2 bedroom apts with 1 double and 1 twin room.

    conveniently located to all transport, spacious, clean and comfortable apartments with everything you need

  • Family with children

    The location of the Hotel is excellent and the access to the tube, bus or train is within 5 min walk. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the apartments are clean and comfortable, with all you need to fill lake home. One more considerable benefit - free wireless internet.

  • Single

    The kitchen was very well equipped and the bed was large and very comfortable.

    The bathroom is a little on the small side to be honest, but it was clean with a new feel to it.

    the location . the appartmwnt was very comfottable

    the price was high

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    It was opposite Liverpool Street station so it was in a perfect location. The apartment was really clean and spacious. The staff were very helpful and friendly, especially Max.

    It was perfect. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to other people.

  • Single
    8.4

    Friendly staff, great position, clean and comfortable apartment with everything you need to prepare a meal.

    For me the only problem was the lack of crtains (or somethng) to stop the light in the morning. I couldn't sleep much because of that. Sorry 196 Bishopsgate but you have to improve that, it's easy!!!

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    location was ideal for a girls weekend away

    the apartment was nothing like it was in the photos. We were under the impression that the 2 bed apartment was luxury and had a balcony, none of this was there. The luxury part should not be on the website and the floors felt like they needed a good wash. The shower was rubbish and hardly had any power. If it was supposed to be luxury I would have thought that it would have had two toilets as well.
