My stay in London with Point A Liverpool Street

I've never thought to experience London with no plan at all. I'm always rushing to a place, or home from a place, and never wanted to stay in the busy streets a minute longer than I need to. I've been to Liverpool Street hundreds of times, so when Point A Hotels offered me a night at their LP Street location, I thought it was a fab idea. 

Head down a little side street just off of the main road and you will find the hotel quietly sitting there with only a sign to tell you where it is. Very modern and warm, we walked into the foyer and was given our key card and breakfast vouchers within a minute. As I don't do lifts, I walked up to the second floor to see that on the landing of the first was an ironing room, complete with boards and hangers, which was a 10/10 start for details. The corridors were dark, "fancy" as I put it. We walked to our room and opened the door to a bright room with a huge window overlooking the gardens. 

The room was smaller than expected although this was never an issue. It came with towels, shampoo/hand wash and a TV. There's a small desk that's a shelving unit until you pull it down and out, and a few round hooks on the wall. The curtains were black out so the minute we got in, the blinds were shut and the mood lighting was our entertainment for 10 minutes. Everything was touch screen, from the lights to the air con. For being modern and a tech lover, I'd give it a 10/10 for that. 

Cleanliness wise I'd give it an 8/10. The minute I walked in I spotted a few hairs on the pillows, and it was just a slight put off as there were no extra ones available in the room. The drains started to smell around 10pm also, but I doubt that's avoidable or the staff's fault at all. 

I know Liverpool Street quite well, so after a day out and traveling, we decided to forget the planned pub and meal, and grabbed a few bits from the shop and had a very romantic dinner in bed. 

Breakfast was continental, from 8-11AM. Loads of different cereals, pastries and fruit on offer, and fresh juices too. I think you had to pay for the teas and coffees, although I'm not sure as we didn't have to hand our vouchers in so, who knows, hot drinks may have been included after all. I opted for my usual bran flakes with an apple juice and a pesto and basil pastry. We sat in the garden to eat, which consisted of a sheltered decking area, with a ramp leading to the larger part of the garden, with as many plants as you can count and an even bigger decking section. 

We checked out at 11 which is a great time actually. Overall we had a great stay, and would definitely stay again. The hotel would be perfect for someone on a night out in the area, as there are tonnes of bars, pubs and restaurants, and being right next to shoreditch, it's a perfect location really. 

This stay was kindly gifted by Point A hotels and the post a result of the collaboration. All views are my own.
