Review | Staycity Aparthotel Liverpool Waterfront


This is a spur of the moment review, because I just took these off the cuff. A few months ago my family and I took a weekend trip to Liverpool in a bid to spend some more time together. When we went to Birmingham we got a hotel, which was very nice, but rooms were about five floors apart. So when I was looking for Liverpool accommodation, we went with Staycity because we could get a two bedroom apartment - so no more calls between rooms to see if someone was ready for dinner.


In terms of location we stayed at the 'Liverpool Waterfront', purely because it was nice and close to the docks and the bars and restaurants we were visiting. There's another one across town which is better suited to the shopping area. Whether you're a first time visiter to the city, or a frequent, you can't visit Liverpool without nipping to the docks - my favourite bar is Goodness Gracious (pictured above) for its incredible views over the Liver Building.

We paid under £150 for the night, which between the four of us was ridiculously reasonable. You can park there for £15-£20 from what I remember which was handy as it's next door and we did use that. For the amount we paid, I wasn't expecting anything amazing, but in all honesty, I couldn't fault the aparthotel. In a two bed apartment you get two bathrooms which is great when everyone's trying to get ready at once. The apartment was spotless when we checked in, and the staff at the front desk couldn't be more helpful prior to getting to our room.


The decor is modern and minimalistic, with dark feature walls, colour pop accessories and cute frame arrangements. Another big bonus of a two bed is the communal area as you get a sofa, kitchen and a huge table which would be perfect if you were having meals there. We went to Rudys instead to take advantage of the fact the pizza's amazing and you can actually book a table at the Liverpool branch as opposed to the Manchester one.

There was everything you needed in the room, and one feature I loved was that the apartment had a switch which turned off all plugs (bar the important ones) with one flick, so no more worrying if you've left your straighteners on! We were less than five minutes from the waterfront and about ten minutes from Albert Dock, so everything was on our doorstep. There's an on-site restaurant which does small dishes, teas, coffees and a small variety of alcohol, so if you're feeling peckish, you can just pop down!

For less than £50 each and a good night's sleep, it really surprised me, and if I was heading back in a group, it's somewhere I'd happily go back.
