Gute Lage und Verbindungen

Posted 22-Oct-2016
Große Lobby und nettes Personal. Gute Aufenthaltsräume im Eingangs und restsurantbereich. Maßlos überteuertes Frühstück! Badezimmer älter Standard: kein Fönanschlusd, etc. Möglich. Expedia zu wenig über die Standards informiert!

Bonrapport qualité/prix

Posted 18-Oct-2016
Location: desserte agréable du centre par le bus 55
La pomme de douche fixe est dépassée. Il faut être anglais pour avoir inventer les poignées de commande de la douche (pourquoi faire simple quand on peut faire compliquer).

You gotta love the light

Posted 26-Sep-2016
The easy access to the hotel is what made me book it, you can go with the underground till Old Street and walk a couple of blocks, and there you are, in the Barbican City Hotel. The hotel is 15min on foot from the King's Cross station or if you walk in the other direction you arrive at the Tower Bridge. The reception has a great look and the people working there were always very gentle and smily. Going up to the room, the hotel facilities had a great look not too modern but not too old, the stateroom on the other hand was kinda odd. The old looking forniture and the short red courtain with yellow and green details were not very pleasant. The bathroom was good, very clean and the bath tube was very relaxing. It's the end of the summer so there's no need of AC turned on all the time, you can just switch to the ceiling fan that spins in a perfect speed so you sleep very well and wake up fresh new... oh, I forgot to mention something tho. In the morning, you don't need to set an alarm because the sun light coming through (what should be) the blackout courtain will wake you up. And the lack of different plugs and adaptors gave me a hard time switiching among my phone, camera and laptop for charging, I called the reception and they didn't have adaptors avaible, only for sale on the vending machine so you need to buy it if you want to recharge your devices. I didn't have breakfast or dinner in the hotel, I found it too expensive since I don't eat much.

There are very few hotels in the City of London ar

Posted 25-Sep-2016
Pros: It is situated in the City of London
Cons: The room we occupied ( No 1223 )needs an upgrade
Location: It is in the City of London, but too far out of the main area, and away from the " middle area " i.e. the Covent Garden
We were not able to check in until after 2.30 pm. Therefore we did not have a room to which to charge our lunch, taken on arrival at 1.15 pm. The Trainee receptionists, very pleasant and able to fulfil the basic elements did no have the experience to deal with this eventuality.

Good hotel with excellent staff

Posted 22-Sep-2016
Pros: This is a good hotel in good condition with very friendly staff.
Location: In the area you have supermarkets and many restaurants. This is not the area you will visit for itself. Just a convenient location.
At a reasonable distance from the underground in a good location, worthwhile for its price.

Trevligt och centralt

Posted 20-Sep-2016
Pros: Trevlig personal, god frukost, bra läge.
Location: T-banan är några minuter bort. Bank och The Shard är på promenadavstånd. Jamie Olivers restaurang Fifteen ligger runt hörnet.
Jag spenderade 3 nätter i ett enkelrum. Standarden på hotellrummet var bättre än jag hade förväntat mig. Trevligt hotell som jag kan rekommendera för kortare eller längre vistelser.
