Excellent location across Liverpool Street StationPosted Oct 11, 2013
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there, room was spacious with kitchen and bathroom. Staffs were friendly and helpful. Got upgraded to penthouse suite for three nights. We had changed to a double room after my daughter moved into her dorm. The double room was also very comfortable but the lighting in the washroom was kind of dark. All in all, we had a comfortable stay there and we will sure to come back to this hotel if we ever visit London again in future.

Walking distance to all my prospects and partnersPosted Sep 12, 2013
Pros: 1. Unit is 3x larger than any hotel I've tried in London 2. It's walking distance 3-5 mins to all my FinSvc meetings. 3. Feels like home
Cons: 1. The air vent is very loud. 2. The mattress is thin and springy, needs more padding 3. Wireless slow from 5-7PM and throttles VPN
Location: Best burgers at "Polo Bar". Good breakfast at "Woodin's Shades"
We usually stay in the Kensington area as it's a bit cheaper but we decided to stay here this time as it's walking distance to most of our meetings. The unit is about 3x bigger than the regular hotel rooms we've tried. The kitchen and living room are big and have a cathedral ceiling. These 2 rooms are one big open concept room. Huge french doors separate this big section from the bedroom and bathroom. Real solid wood hard wood floors are a nice touch.

Great option for groups, families, or long staysPosted Sep 3, 2013
Pros: Extra space that allowed the kids time to play and decompress. The unit was 4X the size of a typical London hotel room for less than double the price.
Cons: Double paned windows would be great to reduce noise from the street.
Location: Opposite Liverpool St tube/train. Tesco, M&S within a block. Nandos around the corner for a moderately priced meal. Walk to Monument, Tower of London.
This property was really conveniently located, and reasonably priced. We chose it among several other suite/apartment options and it worked out quite well. We traveled with our two young daughters (aged 5 and 9) and I think we'd have been driven batty in a standard hotel room. It was great to have the separate bedrooms for so that we weren't locked to the children's sleeping schedule. We also didn't do any serious cooking (the kitchen isn't a gourmet one), but it was nice to have the kitchen to fix a quick breakfast like eggs or yogurt and fruit (£5 from Tesco / M&S, both within a block) instead of £30+ at a restaurant. The beds were VERY firm, which my wife loves and I can tolerate, but you'd be unhappy if you were looking for a pillow top type deal. The living room in our two bedroom unit had huge windows with a great view over Bishopsgate, and also the accompanying noise; the bedrooms were on the back of the building and much quieter. The furnishings were very euro-modern (some literally from IKEA) but decent. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful, and the housekeeping was thorough, including cleaning up the mess from cooking.

close to a tube stationPosted Aug 31, 2013 on Hotels.com
The staff is wonderful. The location was close to the grocery stores ; late night food places ; tube station ; and bus service. Great shopping stores down stairs in the tube station area. Best bars and eateries open late after a full day of tours and shopping. The room looked like the pictures.

Convenient to UndergroundPosted Aug 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
We were thrilled with the accommodations at this facility. Only recommendation would be to add an additional air-conditioning system in the second bedroom.

great accomodationPosted Aug 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
We were upgraded to a one bedroom apartment. Overlooking BIshopgate street. Apartment fab, spacious and very clean. Will definitely be booking here again.

A Family Holiday in LondonPosted Jul 30, 2013
Pros: We enjoyed the feeling of coming home after a busy day that we have not felt in a conventional hotel. The hotel had all we required for daily living.
Cons: Not that I can recollect that would be helpful. If there were shortcomings, they were not so important that I recall them a few weeks after our visit
Location: Bus and subway transportation were almost outside the door to take you wherever you need or want to go. Grocery and other shopping were nearby.
A busy 4 day stop in London for three generations from Canada in 2 apartments at 196 Bishopsgate. It was a first visit for our grandchildren and we enjoyed with them many of the wonderful things London has to offer - historic churches, buildings and important sites, some royal padgentry, theatre, parks, neighbourhoods, a ride on The Eye... It was a getting acquainted visit - hopefully there will be many more. It was refreshing to have the space and comfort to relax after outings, to enjoy a quiet meal and to plan our next adventure.
