I booked the studio room here for a couple of nights over new year, it was reasonably priced & hadn't inflated prices over the new year period, like everywhere else seemed to have done.
We traveled by train then got the tube and were pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel was just a few minutes walk from Barbican tube station, from there it was a very short tube ride to get into central London and all the tourist attractions.
The hotel entrance was welcoming and clean, staff were very friendly on our arrival and check-in was very quick.
In the studio there was a sofa bed which took us a bit by surprise, but is good if you are staying longer and the room needs to double as a living space. As it was a sofa bed, it was not as sturdy as a proper bed but was comfortable enough and both myself and my partner had a decent night's sleep. The room was very clean and was equipped with a kitchen area that had everything you could need (kettle, microwave, fridge, cup, plates, cutlery, sink, even a tiny dishwasher!) for a short stay and coffee, tea & sugar were all provided. There was also a small Tesco a couple of minutes away for anything else. Breakfast wasn't included in the price so I can't comment on this, but I know its provided and the restaurant area looked very clean.
The bathroom was spotless and an ironing board, iron and hairdryer were all provided in the room. The only thing I would say was that there were sheets and blankets on the bed, but I would rather have a duvet but I suppose this is down to personal preference.
I would stay here again if the price was right, but for anything longer than a couple of nights I don't think I would want to sleep on a sofa bed.
