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

This place is handy to the Barbican and city. It is clean and had everything is needed, including a pull out rack over the bath for drying laundry and hangers that you can move - both bonuses if you are staying for a while and want to do hand washing. Tesco is close, Waitrose a wee bit further but an... More

I was working in Cheapside so the location was perfect, a less than 10 minute walk. Also close the the Smithfield/Faringdon area where there are good restaurant options. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. This is an "apart'hotel" so that means that it is, basically, a hotel room with a kitchenette. I did find that it was... More

This was a pretty average hotel, was used for a 3 day business trip. Proximity to tube and the conference hall were both great (less than 5 minute walk to each). Close to coffee shops and restaurants. Room was pretty good - clean, nice bathroom, good bed, good kitchen. The big bottle of water they gave was also great. Only... More

According to the literature the hotel is available from 2pm for check-in. We arrived at 3pm and were told that the room was not ready and were asked to wait 15 mins, as both my husband and I both have serious medical conditions this was not a first good impression. The room had everything available and was clean. The staff... More

We stayed here for one night when we went to see a show in London, and were happy with the accommodation. It was in a good location for the tube network, and the staff on reception were friendly and helpful. The room was a good size, and fitted our needs fine, and the kitchen was a useful addition. We didn't... More

This aparthotel was suffice for my 1 week stay in London. It's very basic, but has all the amenities required for a short stop. The kitchen was 'a little worn' and bathroom a bit scruffy. The bed was comfy and room was clean. Good location for the tube network.will come back. Good price.

Barbican is a very trendy neighbourhood in London nowadays, so the hotel is at the great location. The metroplitan is very close, but even if you had to walk (as I had to due to London Tube strike in April), you can reach the centre in some 20-25 minutes on foot, which is great! Ask for a back room, since... More

Friendly staff, clean comprehensive facilities. We stayed on the Saturday of the late May Bank Holiday weekend, booked quite late but still excellent value when other hotels were charging premium rates. The Citadine model, where you have a kitchen facilities in your room, and a clothes drying rack in the bathroom, won't suit all but was perfect for us.
