It was so nice to call this apartment home for the few days we spent in London. Across the street and 15-20 mins away from any of the attractions by subway, or a 20 min walk to the Tower and London Bridge. The buses were nonstop as well. I so appreciated having a washer/dryer, and a well equipped kitchen! The...

A friend and I stayed here for the weekend. We were on the fourth floor at the back of the building. The apartment was beautifully appointed and had everything we needed. Being at the back was a bonus as it was nice and quiet during the night, until it started getting light and the local bars began emptying their bottle...

I have recently stayed here for a week. The hotel's location is great and due to the proximity of 3 large tube stations, it is very well connected to almost all areas in London. Apartments are well equipped and very spacious. All services are great. Reception staff friendly and efficient. I had a few requests regarding the room which have...

Was only staying the one night. I got a free upgrade to a two-bed apartment on the top floor, so no noise from lifts going up and down or people stomping on floors. Beautifully appointed space; everything that you could really ask for. Sure, no restaurant/bar/room service, but you are right in the middle of one of the most bustling...

Great fully kitted out apartment in the centre of the city, great location and massive space. Apartment was very clean, some maintenance required though, no extraction in the bathroom and towel rail hanging off wall. Overall I would stay here again, great find!

Stayed here for 2 nights on a short break. Location is very convenient, across the road from Liverpool St station, easy access to trains and underground. Walking distance of Tower Bridge, Tower of London and St Catherine's Docks. We were allocated a first floor one bedroom studio which had a bed, kitchenette, dining annexe, separate bathroom and a washing machine....

I've stayed here twice now. Great location opposite London Liverpool Street station. Love having a kitchen too as there is no restaurant. There is a Pret A Manger just a few feet from the front door though. Very clean with an excellent housekeeping service. I'd be happy to stay here anytime.

These apartments are in a great location, lots of amenities nearby and a short walk to Tower Bridge for tourist buses/boats. However, the trade off means it is very noisy day and night. The apartment is quite tired and could do with a freshen up. The master bedroom needed aircon on and the blind shut all the time as the...

If you are looking for serviced apartments on the edge of the City of London then you cannot go wrong with this place. Directly opposite Liverpool Street Station these apartments are spacious and carry most of the comforts of home. As an occasional stayer up in London on business, this would always be my preference - but for 1 or...

Staying in City of London

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
