    A visit to the Barbican”

    For anyone with tickets to see a concert or an exhibition at the Barbican Centre, this hotel is the perfect location. Only a 5 minute easy walk and you are there. A meal or drink before the event and after your concert you can have a drink in one of the local pubs before retiring. The tube is 2 minutes away and you are instantly connected to all parts of London. Or you can walk to St.Paul's and further down to the river towards Tate Modern and as you cross the Millenium Bridge look back and experience one of the most outstanding views in the world. We shall certainly be going back to this hotel.

    Location is fantastic. 15 min walk to St Paul and Tate Modern. Good access to West End via bus 55. While Barbican is the nearest station, it is about 15min walk from St Paul and Old Street station. The kitchen in the 1 bedroom is well fit out and loads to points for charging electronics. Good size for 2 person on a week stay.

    Nice hotel in a safe neighborhood”

    This Citadines hotel was very nice and located in a safe, quiet neighborhood. It takes a little bit to get to most of the tourist attractions, but it's right near several metro lines, so public transportation is easily accessible. The room was very modern and nice. I appreciated the fact that the hotel offers umbrellas for its guests to use and the room had many outlets to choose from. One odd thing was that our room only had a shampoo/body wash and no conditioner. We came prepared but that was a first for us. There was no body lotion or shower cap extras, just the basics: shampoo and soap bar. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The price on the room was reasonable and we were happy with our stay. There were some nice pubs open until 12am in the area that we hung out at and several tourist attractions nearby like St. Pauls Cathedral and The Museum of London.

    The price suits the cleanliness of the hotel and friendliness of the staff, along with the good service. The location is not bad as it is located next to Tesco supermarket and also has cafes nearby for instance PRET A MANGER or Costa. The surrounding environment is also quiet and peaceful, not really crowded.

    Checking in took sometime, staff on the front desk were not as friendly as previous hotels. Rooms were a good size, preferably would have preferred more tea , coffee and milk in rooms but have to say when I asked for more , staff were very efficient in responding. The room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is in a good location with Barbican tube station less than 5 min walk away. I would stay again and would recommend this hotel to a friend .

    Nice but Mean”

    Nice property...Mean hotel chain Not an hotel...more like a serviced residence, with limited services. Pros: Good wifi, good beds, quiet (at the back of the property...can't say much about those rooms that are street facing), good cafe (although this probably has nothing to do with Citadines), secure property. Kitchenette. Staff were helpful and did their best. Cons: no daily cleaning...come on! charge hotel prices and cut down on services?= MEAN. Room is not well laid out, bad use of space. Water saving device in the shower: it's like showering under a trickle of luke warm water. Only one bedside table. No desk to work on. Barely any space to leave suitcase opened. Whoever designed these rooms and the hotel concept never stayed in a hotel or is a socialist: mean spirited and greedy. Cafe bills cannot be transferred to the room bill.

    Amazing boutique hotel. I stayed in a standard room for about a week. The room was very clean and came with a fridge. They provide you with a local phone to use for internet and local and international calls (depending where you are calling), free of charge. The staff was extremely nice and hospitable. The hotel is about a 5-7 minute walk from the Tube (subway), a mini-mart and the London Museum. The only issue is, the area is pretty much dead during the weekends and at night. Finally, the hotel is connect to a small cafe that sells breakfast, and hot and cold foods. If you show your room key you also get a discount! Would definitely stay at the Citadines Barbican again.

    Great stay, this hotel and serviced apartment is a minute walk away from Barbican tube station. Our Studio Double Apartment was comfortable and large with a comfortable bed, well sized bathroom, good free wifi, nice hot shower, and kitchen facilities like a cooker top, sink and dish washer in the room. Breakfast was not included. There is a coin operated laundry mat downstairs but the dryer was broken, we were stuck with wet clothes after the wash until a helpful attendant let us use the staff facilities. This was very kind as the ladies at the desk did not offer this as an option.

    Comfy bed! Very helpful staff and spotless cleanliness.

    Stayed on a sticky Saturday night after seeing Benedict's Hamlet at The Barbican. The room was spotless and comfortable and although there was no aircon it wasn't uncomfortable or too hot. Great amenities and very helpful staff. Also, being just a few hundred yards from the Tube station, it's easy to find. There are a few restaurants and bars around but it's not noisy at night. Cote Brasserie on the far side of the Barbican underpass is recommended for breakfast or brunch.

    A Fabulous Stay ”

    Location, Huge Selection of Restaurants, Comfortable Room

    For a good one week and two days, my stay at this hotel was absolutely good due to the fact that the location was near places like the Barbican Centre and the Guildhall School Music and Drama. However, the only issues that I have are the very high price and the fact that the internet connection in my room tends to be very slow as evidenced when I uploaded my Vlogs onto YouTube taking a grand total of 2 hours for each video to load. While any other place with the fastest internet connection would take 10 to 20 minutes.
