My 12-years old daughter and I stayed here in a twin studio for around 10 days. Our review at below: Location - in zone 1 hence we could travel around by tube or bus easily. 2 minutes to the Barbican tube station with a Tesco Express next to it. Not a touristy area hence not so crowded. Walking distance to... More

My husband and I stayed here 5 nights. We really liked that the room had a kitchen, dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator. Staff was nice. We had no problem with the fact that the room don't get cleaned every day. And we didn't mind to take the trash to a bin in the hallway. The room was a tad crowded with... More

I stayed for 3 nights with 2 children. I had requested a cot and when I got to the room this wasn't there. We called reception 3 times to get them to bring it to us and in the end we had to go to reception to get them to arrange it. Staff had very little knowledge of the area... More

Clean and functional, reception area nice and bright, tv, coffee machine and a very welcome touch, umbrellas for the use of. Reception staff efficient and friendly, I would agree... More

A great find! Hotel/apartments are good. Well maintained and clean. Ideal location for getting out and about in London. Spitting distance from Barbican tube. Some great pubs close by near the Faringdon tube station. Facilities in room good, even a dishwasher! We stayed in a one bed with sofa bed in lounge. More than adequate for the two couples staying.

We stayed here for 5 days in July 2014. Considering the expensive prices in London, we decided to stay here instead of an older hotel in Victoria. The area is very decent, with good transportation bus and the tube (Barbican Station). We arrived here from Heathrow airport taking the express train to Paddington and the tube. Note that you have...

I stayed here when I was at seminar for work. I wasn't feeling particularly well, so I was looking forward to getting to the room and getting straight into bed. The reception staff were pleasant and gave me the key to my room. When I got to the room it stank of curry. Had I not been ill, I would... More

Stayed here for two nights when in London for business and appreciated the place to stay. However, when I stay in a hotel in London, I like a proper hotel. Somewhere that cleans up and replaces towels and linens and empties the bins and provides those little bath toiletries. That being said, if you just want a basic, simple place... More

Laterooms advertised as £126 here, Citadines own website advertised at £105ish. Obviously I went to book through Citadines direct, this then added VAT, so took it to £126. As I get cash back through Quidco and Laterooms I decided to book through Laterooms. When I arrived to check in the receptionist then tried charging me £126 + Vat. I explained... More

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
