Booked a room for £200 in the barbican and was transfered to this hotel on the day. Upon inspection I realised the hotel we were transfered to was of the same quality but it was £80 cheaper. In addition to this it was located further away from the area we needed to stay. The hotel is still taking bookings for the original hotel. I spoke to theo in reservations who never once apologised and offered no refund on the difference or even allowed us to stay in the hotel we originally booked. Not 5 star service and out right rude. Will not use this hotel again.

Stayed a week at the Barbican Rooms for company training, the location was great - could walk to lots of attractions and downtown areas. The location however was surpassed by the great hospitality service provided by the staff! Want to give my deepest thanks to Ishmael and Eva from the club area - they went above and beyond to make my stay more than pleasant with their courteous, professional and friendly service. Looking forward to stay at this hotel again!

old, poorly insulated building. freezing room due to strong drafts from single glazed window and poorly functioning heating on a cold winter night. was moved to warmer room upon complaining twice but then heating was turned off centrally at night probably due to low occupancy. spent miserable night shivering & woke up nursing a cold. this hotel has seen better days & is more like a 3 rather than 5 star hotel. It's only redeeming quality is its polite & helpful staff who tried their best to accomodate us but couldn't compensate for the crumbling infrastructure.

This place is amazing. From arrival to departure, we were treated like royalty, and great care taken of us. Our room was large, luxurious and double-glazed, so was very quiet. The location is excellent, being just 5 mins from the Barbican theatre. And all at a price quite remarkable for its location and standard of service. Special mention to Relu, who anticipated our every need and helped me find my lost mobile phone.
