Excellent HotelTonight find. Location excellent (literally round corner from Barbican tube station), only 10min (via tube) from Kings Cross/St Pancras. Apartments, not a hotel, so you have a fridge and cooker (no oven) and microwave. All very basic but suitable - ie no shampoos conditioners lotions etc, but everything clean and the people at the front desk are always friendly.... More

There are many very good things I can say about this place. Firstly, the location is actually better than I thought, walking distance for many attractions and close to the tube and various shops, pubs and restaurants. Secondly, the staff were really helpful, we asked for a quiet room and we had no noise during our stay from outside or... More

Elegant hotel located in the older part of London. Walking distance to many historical sites. Easy accommodation via underground from the airport and to all parts of London. We'd definitely stay here again.

Booked this through a website and paid £118 for one night stay. The room was small & self contained with a kitchenette area. Clean, tidy and good value for money. The hotel is situated in City of London and great access to all sights via close tube. Can't really fault it and for this price would stay here again.

We stayed one night. Were pleasantly surprised by the king size bed and well designed bathroom. Though the room was not air conditioned, it was quite quiet even with the windows opened. Cheerful and helpful staff at the reception also made our stay a pleasant one.

A Murphy Bed is a bed that you pull down out of a wall, saving space in the room during the day, but providing you with a decent mattress at night. In the case of this hotel, the 'Murphy Bed' turns out to be a sofa bed, which at night gives you an uneven, bar-in-you-back night's sleep. It then mystifies... More

I'm staying in this hotel right now and I cannot WAIT until my holiday is over. It completely ruined my trip. 1. Website says it has air-conditioning. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO AIR CONDITIONING. I'm laying in the bed hot as fire. Oh, but they did bring me a fan (the size big enough for ants). FYI, you can open your... More

We chose this hotel because we needed to be close to Barbican. But after a few days we realized that the location is a convenient home base for the whole city. Its just a short walk to Barbican tube which is just 2 stops from Kings Cross. There is a Tesco Metro nearby and plenty of dining choices. Although there... More

Stayed at this property for a week with my parents. Having stayed in other Somerset and Citadines properties in other countries before, Citadines Barbican meets our expectation. The room is clean and has everything we need during our stay. Kitchenette was very well equipped. Only thing was the hair dryer in my parents' room wasn't really working well. It was... More

We were moved to this hotel as our original hotel had problems in their facilities. The lobby was clean-the breakfast seemed scarce(but there is a breakfast joint not to far away). The subway was nearby but, as tourists, we had to transfer to get to most place, making it not very convenient. Our family of four(two almost frown kids) fit... More
