The hotel was exactly what we wanted and more. It is very conveniently located within a short walking distance from Moorgate and Liverpool train stations […]. The staff were very friendly and go above and beyond ones expectations. The hotel is very much a boutique hotel with very intimate settings.
The hotel was upbeat, energetic, modern & sophisticated.
