Great central option and superbly friendly staff!”

Stayed in the hotel for 10 days as a mix of work and pleasure. Superbly well-located, right in front of Liverpool St station, close to all amenities London has to offer. The room was large and comfortable. Staff incredibly helpful and friendly. Had an incident with the guests above me throwing a party on a Saturday night (it’s the downside of being very close to Shoreditch, I’m afraid. But being from the area I’m well aware that these can happen), and staff were very accommodating and swift in their solution, offering me to sleep in another room for the night. I also had a package arriving after I left, and they offered to post it to a friend in London free of charge. Will definitely stay again when I’m in need to head back to London!

Great location and price but you get what you pay for!!”

This is a fantastic location at a very competitive price. Staff were friendly and helpful. The property is pretty tired and scruffy and while my specific apartment was clean it did not smell the freshest. However, this is budget accommodation for the area so not bad value. Not one for a couples romantic break but good for one or two nights in the city for a work trip..

Near to public transportation, many pubs, restaurants, cafe nearby, comfy service apartment with kitchen and washing machine

The hotel staff is friendly. The hotel is located near Liverpool Street Station, which is centrally located in London city and convenient to access to major attractions. It is a service apartment, which include kitchen with oven, microwave oven, washing machine. We cooked for our breakfast and dinner. There are some bars near the hotel, so it may be a bit noisy if you stay in lower floors. I highly recommend the polar bear bar nearby, the burgers are very nice.

Stayed here for one night only, location and good reviews were my main criteria to choose this hotel as I was travelling with a small child. Staff were very friendly, location superb and apartment very spacious for central London. Felt very safe at night, we had a quiet room with a window out the back. I could make myself a coffee before we left the next day which was nice. Would definitely recommend even for longer stays due to great facilities and location. Room was very clean and tidy, heated towel rack in the bathroom a plus.
