“Excellent stay”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Excellent location, very large rooms. Nice location, close to Liverpool Street St and Shoreditch. Lots of places to eat around. Close to Tesco and Boots. Can get a bit noise at night doe to it location but not too bad you are still able to sleep ;) Excellent view on busy street and office buildings around. I am glad I discovered this hotel as it will not be my last visit here.

The serviced apartment has everything, including toiletries, coffee, a washing and drying machine. The living and kitchen are quite large. It is really close to everything. The staff is quite friendly and helpful. We stayed for over a week. My only complaint is that I think we should not have been charged for the extra bed or there should be twin rooms.

We stayed for 1 week and enjoyed it immensely. Rooms are always cleaned to perfection. We left our dishwasher on while we went out with the intention being to off load it on our return. We were more than surprised this had been done when the room was being serviced. Beds very comfortable and bath robes comfy. Location great with Liverpool Street station nearly opposite ideal for the tube and trains. This has a great shopping area. Tesco few doors
Up and Boots next door. One regret - we had to leave.

Perfect location for visiting London. Across the road from Liverpool Street Station with easy train access to Gatwick, Southend Stanstead and Heathrow airports. Close to Central London attractions, theatres etc. Comfortable rooms and well appointed. A little noisy at nights being close to bars. If you want real milk in your coffee then take your own as they only supply skim milk.

Room Tip: There is a slow lift but many rooms still require a few steps to access your room.

Was a bit dubious at first about staying in an apartment but I was very pleasantly surprised. The opportunity to have a separate seating area and the ability to cook your own food means that you can really enjoy London as a family sharing your days experiences in comfortable surroundings rather than propped up on the end of a bed in a camped hotel room. The rooms are large and spacious, the apartments are very clean and the utilitites/facilities are great. We have a teenage Son and previously he wasn't keen on travelling with us but he had his own room and space to relax so a very harmonious trip was had. The staff were really helpful and took our luggage early allowing us to explore the area before booking in. Lots of places to eat and a Supermarket just 2 mins away re stocking up your fridge, although there are many palces to eat out as well. The location is a must for site seeing in London withSpittalfields Market just around the corner. I will definitely stay again and have recommended this to all of my friends. No more hotels for me in London.

I stayed for 6 nights in a very comfortable and spacious apartment on the second floor. All rooms were very clean und I missed nothing. Reception and cleaning service were perfect.

I enjoyed my stay. By the way: you find a lot of shops and restaurants around the apartment. Location is just a few steps away from Liverpool station to reach all parts of London.

Room Tip: The hotel itself was very quiet, but we had an apartment. towards Bishopsgate which was a little bit...

Our family of four stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment at 196 Bishopsgate for 6 nights in July 2014. The split level apartment was incredibly spacious, 2 large bedrooms both with televisions, huge family room with another television, kitchen with full sized fridge, microwave, oven and dishwasher. There is an alcove off the bathroom with a washer/dryer (very handy). We were very comfortable at 196 and would definately stay again and recommend to anyone travelling to London. The Liverpool St Station is right across the road making it easy to get around and there are also many buses going right past the door. There is a Pret a Manger downstairs that opens at 6am for an early morning coffee as well as the great range of food they have. Tesco supermarket metres away and M & S food at the train station making it easy to have food on hand in the apartment. We bought breakfast supplies to cook for ourselves but ate out the rest of the time. A huge thankyou to 196 Bishopsgate, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you.
