Great hotel, great location.Posted Nov 12, 2014
The hotel is a stones throw from Liverpool Street Station, which connects to many of the main lines. There are many pubs in the vicinity and clubs down the road within walking distance. Also, there is a restaurant that serves breakfast and food 24 hours, so no need for the overpriced set breakfast that is delivered to the room. The hallways seemed a little dated, but the rooms were fantastic. I couldn't quite figure out the heater, which didn't bother me enough to ask for assistance. Additionally, there was a toothpaste tube and small trash wedged between the sink and shower. I only saw it because I reached down to pick something up, so the cleaners may never notice. I will definitely stay here again.

You've got to check out this hotel.Posted Nov 11, 2014
Pros: I'm accustomed to great customer service and the staff here really went that extra mile to ensure my stay was pleasant...very nice and courteous.
Cons: I would have liked to have had breakfast included with my stay (this is something I may have over-looked when I booked my stay).
Location: The hotel is right on Liverpool Street and a 2 min walk from a pretty big tube station.
I flew to London to enjoy an American football game (Go Cowboys). This hotel is in an excellent location in relation to sight-seeing, clubbing/pubbing, and enjoying the a lot of restaurants. My single bedroom apartment was nice and spacious.

Great location, spacious living area,Posted Oct 13, 2014
Pros: Location. Helpful staff Daily room service. Well equipped kitchen.
Cons: The ironing board needs replacing!
Location: Great location.......Central London close by.....no more to be said!!!
Great to have the apartment facilities so close to Central London, but still so quiet at night. Very sound proof. Bathroom is tiny compared to other recent stays, has washing machine/dryer included, and looks a little tired, but very clean and serviceable. Transport very close by. Shopping Center and great fresh food option next door, open early till late.

A great place to stay in the City.Posted Sep 28, 2014
We stayed at 196 Bishopsgate for seven nights. It was very clean and comfortable. It is in the City district and is almost directly located across from Liverpool Station. There are four different tube lines that you can catch from Liverpool Station making travel extremely easy. There is a bank/ATM, coffee shop, pharmacy, and a Tesco within block from the hotel as well. The front desk staff was helpful in assisting us with reserving taxi's for two early morning trips to St. Pancras station and the cleaning staff was very attentive. I gave the hotel an overall five star rating but there was one negative. The elevator had broken down on our last nights stay and it was not repaired by the time we checked out the next morning. We had to lug our bags down five flights of stairs. The staff seamed insensitive to that and did not bother to apologize.

Girls Weekend (the classy type!)Posted Sep 23, 2014
I booked these apartments for a hen weekend and they were fantastic, since we had several members of the party that were local the apartments allowed for them to sit in the lounge area and relax whilst the rest of us got ready for our night out. Facilities were excellent and the staff very helpful. I would stay here again with my family as it is opposite Liverpool Street station so is perfectly located.

August HolidayPosted Aug 23, 2014 on Hotels.com
I was very satisfied with my room - although watch out for a half-flight of stairs if your room is in the back. My room was an executive suite, which consisted of a full kitchen, a lounge area (desk, television, sofa and sofa table), and a bedroom behind French doors, as well as a bathroom with shower only, and a "laundry closet" with washer/dryer and ironing board/iron. Everything worked well, except for occasionally problematic wi-fi for 2-3 days. Housekeeping in the rooms was excellent, even to washing dishes I'd left behind. Having said that, some friends were also staying here in rooms at the front of the hotel, and they reported problems with water and non-existent wi-fi for most of their stay. It was warm while I was here, but I opted to have open windows instead of using the air conditioning (which I think would have only really cooled the lounge). You have to sign a waiver to have the windows unlocked, but they are on a tether to prevent climb-ins. Remember to keep the blinds down when changing, other suites/neighbours can see in. A five minute walk to the Sunday Upmarket and Spitalfields Market is just around the corner, with Liverpool tube/train station right across the street. Police station two doors down, and a well stocked Tesco supermarket two minutes away - great for a ready-made meal to pop in the oven at the end of a day of shopping or touring about.

Clean but not as nice as photos suggestPosted Aug 22, 2014 on Hotels.com
Clean accommodation that served as a good base for 2 nights. Fairly basic though and not as swanky as the photos portray. View from bedroom a bit grim. Felt a bit poky in corridors but more space in actual room. Staff on reception friendly and helpful. Location Handy for tubes and eating places and short walk to river. Would I stay again? Yes but no more than 2 nights again
