“Somebody knows what they are doing here, why is this surprising?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Rated with five stars, this hotel delivers the perks of a five star hotel with out having an overwhelming number of staff members for every function. I am talking about the lack of Valet or no doorman or other superfluous things that I can do without. I got the service and comfort I wanted and expected of such rating. I did not require to be walked to my room, or perhaps be greeted with a beverage but everything else was there. Thats why I know that whomever runs that property comes from a five star mainstream training. I got a beautifully appointed room, elegant, clean and fully fitted with all the amenities one expects from the top hotels. Classical Music playing greets you as you explore the room, you will find oversized bathroom toiletries, large bath towels, bathrobes and slippers, umbrella and full minibar, free internet and ipod docking, large bath tub and separate shower, fresh free sparkling water and news papers, very affordable parking, I even got complementary late checkout. All that at an entry level room, I have paid more at a budget hotel thats why it was so impressive. While the location is not ideal if you are going for tourism, It is well worth the extra five minutes travel time to the best attractions. I fully recommend it.

I have stayed at Threadneedles a few times over the years and it remains very consistent and a top choice in the City of London. A great location if working in the City within walking distance of the Bank tube station. The rooms are comfortable and elegant - quite reasonable size by London standards with comfortable beds and well appointed bathrooms with nice toiletries. The restaurant serves a great english breakfast and seems like a popular venue. Highly recommended as a convenient and high quality business hotel if staying in London City.

Staying here for one Saturday night in early December has become our favourite pre-Christmas / hubby's birthday treat even though we live in London. I love the City at the weekend when there is hardly anyone about. The bus that stops outside the hotel takes you to the West End and there are places to eat in nearby One New Change, so you are spoilt for choice.

The hotel is lovely, I can't recommend it highly enough. The lobby is beautiful (good pink star-burst decorations this year) and the rooms stylish. We had room 410 which was spacious and completely peaceful with a huge bed. You get no sense of how many other people are staying here as the walls and doors are so thick, it's only at breakfast that you realise there are other guests.

We hope to make it 7 years in a row in 2013.

The hotel is very convenient, just a couple of minutes walk from Bank station which is served by various lines including DLR although some are a fair walk from the entrance. The central line would do as a starting point and is the easiest and quickest to get on to from Bank.
We arrived very early and were able to check-in immediately. Very attentive front desk staff. Our room was a basic double but had everything we could want. Check the hotel web-site for full descriptions of rooms. Good water pressure, great toiletries, sorry, but I didn't leave any of them behind as I would normally. Very comfy bed, great night's sleep. I expect like everything, it depends on the price you pay and I never felt short-changed in any way. I will look for deals at this hotel first whenever I visit London.
I didn't use any other hotel facilities apart from storing my luggage after checking out which was done willingly. There was nothing more I could have asked for.

Room Tip: I was happy with the room I was allocated

Stayed here this weekend for my partner's 30th. The city is a little quiet on the weekend but that's no bad thing. A minute's walk from Bank underground which is on the Central and northern lines.
The hotel is really lovely - many other reviewers pick on silly little details which wouldn't bother anyone with anything better to do.
We had breakfast in our room - it was very nice indeed, and having forgotten a few items the staff were happy to provide combs and toothpaste.
Our room was large and light and the bathroom a highlight for pampering.
We would definitely return.

We stayed here on Friday night and were delighted with the quality of the hotel, the very helpful and friendly staff and an excellent night's sleep. Our room on the second floor faced inwards and overlooked the old banking hall's domed roof. The bath was the biggest I've seen and the huge bed was so comfortable. Some hotels are too hot and airless but with the AC off the room, with its high ceilings, blackout curtains and lack of noise from the hotel made it such a peaceful place to stay. The room was full of nice touches and cocktail bar had a sophisticated buzz about it. Can't wait for an excuse to go back and next time check out the breakfast menu which looked amazing.

Room Tip: Room 202 was very quiet for us even though the hotel was full
