Accommodations were even nicer than expected. The location was extremely convenient--walking distance from the various central London sights with easy access to a tube station when we wanted to visit more distant areas of London. Would definitely stay there again.

Good location and fit out”
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.

Would recommend to visitors.”
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.

Great Stay”
nice room size, good location, clean
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.

Large room size, Kitchenette and convenience to access to public transportations
Large room size compare with most of hotel in town, services apartment ideal. Fully kitchenette, but drier and washer have to pay with coins machine on the basement. Large storage for baggages and its free of charge. Friendly staff. Good for long stay. Near by couple hundred meters is the tube Barbican Station, which no elevator or disable access. Bus stop just on the next door.

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.

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.

Convenient for the City”
Location, sizeable room, good self catering facilities
This was just what I wanted - a reasonably sized room close to a tube station (2 mins from Barbican) and walking distance from the City. I stocked up at the Tesco Express next to the Barbican tube station, and then realised that the aparthotel also offered breakfast! But the kitchen was more than adequate with a fridge, dishwasher, microwave/combi oven, toaster and crockery/cutlery for 4 people. I booked a double apartment so had a permanent bed!

Good location for City business, well run with consistent standards
this is the second time i've stayed at the citadines barbican (my client is just 10 minutes walking distance from the hotel) and it confirmed the impressions i'd formed on my first visit. it is well run, with a friendly welcome and helpful staff. the rooms are basic, but well maintained and clean. the only issue i had is the over-enthusiastic central heating, which made the room too hot for my taste. the hotel is also competitively priced for london (especially the city). for a business traveller who doesn't need the frills and values consistency and function - the citidines is ideal.

Was worried about the sofabed but it was fine- kingsize and fairly comfortable...plus it was nice to have a sofa before. DVD player could play divx films - handy if you're a gadget freak like me! Tesco metro down the road had a good selection of food including breakfast stuff, which I cooked under the microwave grill.... then the all the dishes in the dishwasher!
