“Blown away by these beautiful apartments”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

I stayed here for two nights through Groupon in December and was completely blown away by the standard of these apartments. The entire process was seamless from booking through to check in and then check out. It was a breat of fresh air in comparison to stuffy and overprices hotels that we have stayed in in the capital before.

The apartments are much bigger than I had previously imagines and come with everything you could need. I walked in and said to my boyfriend 'I wish we lives here!'.

The location is second to none, really easy to get around the city and the staff are also really friendly and helpful.

I would (and have!) thoroughly recommend the apartments to everyone I know that is staying in London in the near future.

Thanks City Nites for a lovely weekend :)

Room Tip: We had a room on a corner which had floor to ceiling windows and was very bright and airy

This was our second weekend stay with City Nites London and have regularly stayed at the Birmingham apartments as well. Having stayed in other London hotels with a similar and often more expensive rate than City Nites I can categorically say that this is by far the best and the only place we will be staying when we visit again!

The location in Aldgate is great with tube stops within easy walking distance from the apartments. It's just a short walk to Tower Bridge and other nearby sights and handy for Spitalfields market. The apartments themselves are spacious, beautifully furnished and super clean! Each time we have stayed the check in staff have been really friendly and efficient.

We can't wait to come back there soon. Keep up the good work City Nites!

This was so much nicer than a hotel. It was a home from home. Pack bacon and eggs and cook it yourself for breakfast. So much better than having to get up, get dressed, go find a cafe.... It's also very handy for the o2 Arena - just one tube stop. The apartment was spotlessly clean - with tea, coffee, sugar, milk, dishwasher tablets and everything you will need. Very well thought out. There is a building site nearby but it didn't bother us. We didn't hear them working and we had a balcony overlooking the site. I loved our one-night stop and would definitely stay here again.

We arrived slightly early before check in which was at 3pm. We were met by a city nites representative. We were allowed to leave our bags in our room as the room wasn't ready, which was good as we wanted to head into London center. When we came back everything was just as you would expect. The rooms were spacious and very clean and done to a good standard. The apartment was only a short 10-15 stroll to canary wharf station which was perfect. The only downside was the building site next door which would wake you up not too early in the morning. All in all i would recommend this place to any who is going to London for a few days.
With the train only a short distance away you can get to any where in a short amount of time. It took us about 25 mins to get from the apartment to the center of London. You can't really ask more then that.

I regularly stay at City Nites Canary Wharf. I only wish I had discovered this company before. The accomodation is first rate, excellent services, free wifi, fully equipt kitchen etc. Most importantly for me, it is in a safe location and you are met by their concierge and escorted to your apartment.

Pros - the apartment building is in a good location, 2 mins walk from a DLR station, and 5-10 minutes from Canary Wharf shops and restaurants. The apartment itself was new, clean and modern, with adequate quality furnishings.

Cons - I will list these as they are many:
- inadequate arrival instructions - we ended up on the wrong side of the building as the address localises to a pedestrianised area between 2 streets
- staff who don't seem to know what they are doing, and didn't know who we were or what our booking details were. (In fact, they were very pleasant and trying hard, but did not seem to have been given adequate training or support).
- £15 per night to park your car (not free as a previous reviewer reported)
- they do not give you a fob for the car park, so you have to get the concierge to open the door for you every time
- the concierge is based in a part of the building which our door fob could not access, making this even more of a hassle
- there is construction work immediately outside the apartment block, and this looks likely to continue for some months. While we were there, they were using heavy machinery to demolish solid concrete foundations which vibrated the whole building from 8am onwards.


We would not stay here again - go to the Hilton up the road, you'll have a nicer stay.

Room Tip: Book somewhere else where there is not massive construction work going on.

Had a two night stay and the apartment was clean, modern and safe. Staff were more than helpful. Would gladly return. Great alternative to crap hotels. We had three nights of free parking in underground car park leaving us free to use the tube. Just five mins walk from canary wharf tube, restaurants. Was greeted by rep.
