*Gifted stay. All opinions my own.
Summer is here and when Point A reached out to me to see if I fancied staying a night at their Liverpool Street Hotel I jumped at the chance. It’s not often I get to stay in a hotel in London, I think I’ve only ever done so once before so I thought it would be a great way to explore a different neighbourhood and also be able to try out somewhere I can recommend to people visiting London.
The hotel is situated 5 minutes walk from Liverpool Street station, and is just around the corner from Spitalfields market.
In terms of the price, rooms start at £69. They have a few hotels around London and also ones in Glasgow and Edinburgh. I’ve had a quick look online for the Liverpool Street one and found a Saturday night stay in August for around £125, I did see some dates available at £105! The price seems pretty good to me considering the location. You can also get 10% off by signing up to their mailing list and booking direct here
Inside the hotel there’s a lounge area that doubles up as the breakfast room, with plenty of plugs and usb points (I find this very handy when working on the go) and there’s additional seating in the garden where you can relax. The hotel and garden is very peaceful considering it’s right in the city, so it would make a nice place to come back to after a day of sight seeing.
The rooms are compact, but well designed. They offer Hypnos beds, smart TVs, Mood lighting, a Hair dryer and a safe that is big enough to fit a laptop. One of my biggest hotel peeves is safes that aren’t big enough to fit my laptop and camera, as I always end up worrying about them if I don’t bring them out with me.
There was some clever storage above the bed, big enough to store wash bags or underwear, and at the bedside USB points and more plug sockets. (I’m also slightly obsessed with this, if you have seen any of my travel vlogs you will know I often take an extension lead with me because it drives me mad if I can’t plug the phone in to charge by the bed!
The dressing table comes with a hairdryer, so no going down to reception to ask for one, and it doubles up as a desk space by folding down and adding a folding chair from the wall.
If you need to iron (something I rarely do!) they have an ironing room. To be honest there isn’t really space for an ironing board in the room, so I think this is a clever solution. If you are staying for a few nights, the rooms will be cleaned after the 3rd night, as part of them doing their bit for the environment, but if you want it to be cleaned every day you can ask. Personally I always try to dry my towels rather than ask for fresh ones to do my bit.
Breakfast was a simple continental style buffet, with lots of fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurts, pastries and boiled eggs to choose from, along with juices and hot drinks.
You really can’t beat the location here as a base to explore London from. There’s lots you can do right on it’s door step, with Spitalfields Market around the corner, and Dennis Severs’ House Museum across the road. I really want to visit it at Christmas time, it looks magical!
One last thing I couldn’t fault was the speed of the hotel Wifi, it was super fast and allowed me to get a YouTube video uploaded within an hour.
Check in is from 3pm and check out is 11am, but you can extend this to 2pm for a fee. The hotel address is: 13-15 Folgate Street, London E1 6BX
