Overnight stay on business, I had a double room which was of a reasonable size, it was clean and well maintained and had a comfortable bed. Wi Fi was poor and dropped a couple of times so don't expect to do any serious work here but ok for light social stuff. No restaurant attached, but the breakfast was fine. Very... More

Stayed for 1 night and and if was ok, nothing special just clean and functional but all very brown and beige and dated/old fashioned. Check your room type as I ended up with a fold down bed when I had booked a twin! The weird double doors are a nightmare with a suitcase as you have to go through a... More

We stayed at The Citadines when attending a dinner at Goldsmith's Hall, 1/2 mile down Aldersgate. This aparthotel is on the main road, 5 minutes from Barbican Tube Station. Compared to the ludicrous rates for most of the "proper" hotels in the area, it's a bargain. As other reviewers have said, the room is not large, and with the bed... More

It is not deluxe, it has little services other than a front desk, but the room was large, with a good size bathroom and enough room to move around, iron some clothes and not feel like you are in a shoe box like most single rooms in London. Furniture was modern, wifi work well. It has no restaurants but the... More

Stayed at the Citadines Barbican for a few nights on business. It's a no-frills business hotel, but my room was clean, spacious (by London standards, of course), and reasonably priced (for London). I didn't use the kitchenette, but it looked well appointed. Lobby area is nice, with complimentary coffee/cappuccino all day. My in-room wifi worked very well, and there seemed... More

First, we got a great rate to stay, about £97 per night. On the Citadines website, sign up to become an Online Member - they offer discounts! They tell you on check-in and on the website that cleaning isn't every day, but you can request a specific day to be cleaned. There is also recycling and trash disposal on each... More

This property has all the good things we've come to expect from Citadines, including a free cappuccino machine in the lobby, good wi fi access and a functional kitchenette.. The room was modern and well presented, and adequate albeit not overly-generous in size and so a little cluttered. It's just down the street from the Barbican underground (note, if you've... More

Stayed here over the weekend and was really pleased with it. We booked through one of the internet deal sites so didn't pay a huge sum so were even more pleasantly surprised. Bathroom fine but could do with an extra light Bedroom spacious with well equipped kitchen area. 2 armchairs and an actual window that opened properly instead of being... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Apart'hotel from Thursday to Monday. We liked it very much here, as we felt perfectly comfortable. The room was very clean (congratulations to the maintenance staff, I have never seen a hotel bathroom this clean) and nice. We loved the bed, it was so comfy that we always struggled to leave it.
