Great weekend in a great hotel”
I stayed at the Thistle Barbical with my Wife for a weekend. The hotel was safe, secure, clean and withing walking distance to multiple tube stations. Breakfast was good. Great to have a swimming pool, sauna, steam room etc to help unwind after walking round the city all day. We really enjoyed this hotel and would definately stay here again.

Great stay in a clean and friendly hotel”
I stayed at the Thistle Barbican for a week on business. I can honestly say that this was one of the best hotels in Londaon that I have stayed in. The rooms were very clean, the hotel facilities were superb (love the swimming pool, sauna, steam room etc). There are 3 tube stations withing easy reach (Old Street, Angel & Barbican), so travel in/out of the centre was easy. Breakfast was of good quality, buffet style, but plenty of choices on offer. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. I would definately reccomend this hote, and will stay here again.

The walk to the tube station was a bit further than I realized but it was a relatively quiet area by the hotel which was nice. The rooms were clean and neat. The breakfast buffet had options for everyone. The staff was always helpful, polite and smiling. I would stay again.

Great location, poor quality. AC never worked”
Other than one staff member, the others at the front desk are not sufficiently trained. Booked a room with A/C, it only worked for 1 week. Paid an extra 40.00 pounds / night for the AC room. The changed my room saying the AC worked in the other room. Maintenance staff said it is not fixed and does not work in any of the rooms. The windows are full of moss. Not sure what rating the Health Inspectors have given the place. The house keeping staff are good.

Great location, good price, friendly staff. ”
When we arrived we waited a while to check in, but only cause they were training people. Other than that, friendly welcome, room was great, especially the fact they had fans and air conditioning on such a hot day. We went to the theatre in the evening which was 10 mins away. And morning breakfast was delicious and full of choice. My partner was coeliac and they had options for her. So all in all great experience.

Couldn’t have been better”
The website suggested the staff team would do whatever they could to make stay great. I cannot agree more. We arrived in the morning and wanted to drop bags off in storage before exploring London. It turned out our two kids had been missed off our booking. Without skipping a beat our receptionist upgraded us to a junior suite and then organised for the room to be turned around in 20 minutes whilst we grabbed a coffee. We were checked in by half past eleven, giving us the whole day in London without worrying about check in again. Room was amazing, the pool was great and breakfast was brilliant. All the staff were totally friendly and helpful. Location is ten minute walk from Old Street, a few stops from Euston.

Good ”
Now I've stayed at The Thistle before and will do so again. I find it comfortable and convenient, with an excellent breakfast & a pleasant pool. Had a 'free' room upgrade too. But this visit had some niggles. Firstly, they boast tea & coffee making facilities in the rooms. Except there was no tea (loads of green & peppermint but no ordinary tea). A mistake anyone could make? No. A simple service & quality check should guarantee this provision 100% without fail. Yet the really annoying part of this was ringing reception to report it and getting no reply. This happened half a dozen times at least. Eventually I went down to reception. No explanation for ignoring the calls but at least I was given a plentiful supply of tea & milk. Wait, there's more. So we decided to spend some more money at the hotel and order from the room service menu. So we rang room service and ............ yes, you guessed it, no reply. Despite repeated attempts. Both bizarre and annoying!

Very clean, well organised hotel near Old Street tube station. We were upgraded to a larger room which was a nice surprise. Staff very helpful, work hard and make this a hotel I would return too. We paid extra for breakfast but there was a very good selection. Also it's very helpful that the hotel will look after bags if needed at no extra charge on checkout day.

I stayed at the Barbican Shoreditch hotel for 5 nights as was visiting some friends in town. It offered a great value for money as well as a fantastic location just a few minutes away from nearest tube station Old Street which connects to main attractions in the heart of London in just 15-20min. Great night life in Shoreditch also for a few cocktails!

Tired, uni student style accommodation.”
Ever morning I was rudely greeted by multiple staff wanting to enter my room for various reasons, this very much disturbed my mornings in the fear that I would be walked in on when in the bathroom. It seemed there was no communication from reception as to when I was checking out, or how many days I was staying. Disappointing. The accommodation was overpriced.
