“Ultra Posh”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

We stayed here over a weekend to attend a wedding, the surrounding area was quiet being more corporate but we were a short walk from the tube station. The hotel is gorgeous inside and out, the staff were eager to please, and managed to get us an early check in. The rooms are lovely even though they are on the smallish side and ours didn't have a view, there was ample cupboard space and the bathroom was beautiful and cleverly laid out. Everything from toiletries to mini bar just showed that extra touch of finesse. Breakfasts and the range of teas were spectacular. Loved it.

Room Tip: I bet it would be nice to have a view of Threadneedle Street.

We wanted to stay in a 5* hotel within a specific area and after reading reviews on various hotels we settled for Threadneedles and very glad we did. Beautiful architecture with a fabulous stained glasses dome in the reception, which had originally been the old banking hall. We were upgraded to a delux room (318) which was a lovely touch, the room was spacious and no detail had been overlooked, products from the white company, warm & cosy but most important of all, the bed was extremely comfortable with a thick topper on the mattress to sink into, a perfect nights sleep. (Although we did'nt eat at the hotel this time as we had booked breakfast on the 40th floor of the Duck & Waffle, with a fabulous view of London.) we did have coffee on arrival which was delicious and quality. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay here again when next in London and hopefully a longer stay and time to snuggle in that lovely bed and enjoy their breakfast. P.S One ManTwo Guvnors at The Royal Theatre Haymarket - Hilarious!! and only a short taxi ride (less than £15) from Threadneedles. Perfect weekend.

Room Tip: Room 318 was just perfect.

Looking for a nice hotel for my partner and I to stay at in London over our anniversary weekend! I was looking for something very special but not with a massive pricetag in London. Very difficult. However, was looking on trip advisor and found this hotel. I'm so glad I decided to book via the hotel, as it worked out the cheapest route. On arrival and swift check in via a wonderful receptionist, you knew this would be a five star experience! The impressive dome (as it used ot be a bank) and pillars around the lobby looked incredible! We were given our room card, and to our amazement we were booked into the Penthouse, from compliments of management. Private lift whisked us up to the top floor, walked into the room and wow! Lovely seating area, huge bathroom with fantastic toiletries, fluffy white robes and slippers. Huge bed, with great tech system. Plenty of plug points in front of mirrors, with a great steam iron too. But the highlight of this room was the balcony that stretched from one end of our penthouse to the other, with lovely table and chairs outside! We had two glasses of complimentary champagne delivered to us while we were getting ready for our night out. blown away by the service. Again at such a reasonable price. I would of paid double for this experience! In the morning we had a lovely lie in followed by an incredible full breakfast, juice and coffee! Well worth getting up for! Can't wait to stay again, most likely will book this year for our anniversary again! simply stunning! Thank you Threadneedles.

Room Tip: Book the Penthouse! You wont regret it!

Loved this place so much that I am making it my new base for visits to London. Everything about it is quality.. service, food, staff, ambiance. On the doorstep of the city, and yet so tranquil under the incredible dome in the main lobby.

Try it.. you'll love it!

Room Tip: I was in 308.. lovely room and super en-suite.

We have stayed at this hotel a few times after being recommended by a friend. Our most recent stay boasted a complimentary upgrade to a better room which is always nice, especially when the visit was to celebrate a birthday.

The style of this hotel mixes modern decor with the original features of a former victorian banking house.

The rooms are very comfortable and well equipped and beds extremely comfortable.

We have had breakfast, cocktails in the bar and dinner during our stays and the quality of these has been excellent, as has the service by all of the staff from reception, to bar and restaurant.

This was our second stay at the Threadneedles Hotel taking advantage of a special weekend rate. Although the surrounding area was very quiet it is close to Bank station so is easy to get to the West End. Our room, a deluxe, was very comfortable and clean as was the large bathroom. Staff were outstandingly efficient and friendly. Breakfast was excellent and freshly cooked.
Our only problem was an alarm going off across the street in the middle of the night, not the fault of the hotel who did their best to find someone to turn it off.
We will definitely stay again.

We stayed for my birthday for one night in earlyJanuary and despite the hotel being virtually empty (didnt see one other guest!) we were given a room above the main road which we didnt realise til about 5am was unbelievably noisy, every bus that went by made the room rattle, needless to say neither of us had any sleep whatsoever which was not helped by the persistant mini bar monitor who knocked once and barged in the second time while we were in bed, despite us only having 11am checkout and having told reception we didnt want disturbing!
The room was a decent size, comfortable bed and opulently decorated but there ends my positive comments. The bedside table and lamps were thick with dust, i ran my finger through it, it was that bad! Only 2 mini cartons of milk were provided equating to one hot drink each and despite my boyfriend emailing the hotel beforehand to let them know it was my birthday and that any special touches would be appreciated, they merely left what can only be described as a melted smear of chocolate saying 'happy birthday' on a plate in the room! The reception staff were snooty and unhelpful and offered absolutely no recompense for our complaints. Really cannot see what makes this place 5*, stayed at doubletree by hilton round the corner a few weeks earlier with my daughter and that was a far better stay in every respect by far. Do not waste your money on this overpriced, below standard hotel.
