“Great weekend stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

If you are in London for the weekend and want a quality hotel at a reasonable rate then this could be the hotel for you.
Located in the City, it is busy during the week but not at the weekend when all the business people have left town, hence the reasonable London rates.
The staff are friendly, polite and welcoming. The standard room was well appointed and of a good size. The reception area and general ambience exuded a calmness and a sense of class.
There is much to praise and little to criticise about this hotel.
Located close to a tube station, yet in a quiet area of London, it is very easy to travel to anywhere in the city. It really is a gem!

This hotel met all expectations and failed to disappoint in an way, shape or form.
Situated on a quite road (which is rare for central London) and less than a 2 minute walk to Bank underground station. Everything about this hotel is 'grand'!

Unfortunately we were unable to check-in early, however we were able to leave our bags which were then subsequently placed in our room ready for when we returned to check-in later. It is the little things like this that make all the difference, such as the two large bottles of complementary water that were brought up to our room in the evening.

If I was to be super critical then I would say that the plug to the bathroom sink was broken (plug was stuck pressed down) and that the view (from our room at least) was non-existent. We did not stay for the view and the water in the sink did eventually drain away so this was not of any inconvenience.

You get what you pay for and this hotel is no exception.

I have stayed at Threadneedles six times over the past two years. I always enjoy the perfection of the room and the quality of the service. Because I like getting around London on the Underground, the Bank station is nearby and convenient. Although I don't recommend the Bonds Restaurant for breakfast, there a plenty of good spots a short distance away, particularly in the Bishopsgate and St. Paul's areas.

We have stayed at this beautiful hotel on my occasions. The hotel is totally outstanding staff very friendly beautiful big rooms which is unusual for London lovely comfortable beds everything you could ask for. We found it so much cheaper to book direct with the hotel.
The tube station is only a short walk away. Perfect after a busy day in central London.

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!
