                • Single
                  8.2

                  The well-organised simplicity of the experience; good, unfussy, practical facilities; efficient, helpful staff; ideal location; good price - a real selling point. Location was essential but price clinched.

                • Group of friends
                  9.6

                  The reception staff were helpful, the rooms were clean and had everything that you could possibly need and the location was excellent just 2 minutes from the tube.

                • Single
                  6.2

                  I liked the well equipped kitchen corner and convenient transport links (the hotel is located just 3 minutes walk to Barbican tube station)

                  My room was a bit outdated (sofa, carpet, etc.) and there was a smell of humidity in the bathroom.

                • Couple
                  7.4

                  Nice, clean and complete appartment. Close to a supermarket and metro-station.

                  Although the sofa-bed combination worked out fine for a weekend, we would prefer a seperate bed for a longer stay.

                • Single
                  8.8

                  Location was great..Bus station and Barbican tube station nearby..Value for money..

                  Convertible (was hidden in wardrobe) bed was not a good idea...When you open it you have like no space in the room...

                • Couple
                  5.0

                  Hotel close to bus line 55 to go to London centre / Very quiet during the weekend as it is located near the City.

                  Staff polite but not so friendly. Dark studio (weather wasn't really good during our stay). Bathroom could be refurbished (stains, rust). No cleaning service during our 5-day stay (we had to give away our garbage ourselves).

                • Family with children
                  6.6

                  Suitable accomodation for two adults & our child. Kitchen facilities were handy as was the secure car parking.

                  No saucepans or suitable cooking vessels, given that you have full kitchen facilities. Would like the opportunity of cooked breakfast within the hotel & small bar.

                • Single
                  6.2

                  Well located for City meetings. Rooms are clean and relatively quiet, but not very spacious.

                  The fold down bed is not very convenient, as you can't move around the room any more once that is down. For the price, you would expect a proper bed.

                • Older travelers
                  5.8

                  Efficient; everything worked; simple procedures; kitchenette well equipped; good breakfast; staff amiable.

                  Room cramped with pull-down bed pulled down, and room was empty with bed pushed up. Room airless and no ventilation; traffic noise precluded leaving window open.

                • Group of friends
                  8.2

                  Apartment style rooms - so can share with friends. Great for people on a bit of a budget but not wanting to sacrifice comfort and privacy.

                  The breakfast was £11! Needless to say we didnt bother and went to a lovely bistro down the road!!

                  Nice to have more room than a hotel bedroom, separate kitchen etc.

                  We stayed for just 24 hours. We came to London to attend a function at the Guild Hall and the location of the hotel was very convenient. Having said that, we were very pleased with the welcome, the room and its facilities and the assistance given without us having to ask upon our departure.

                  There was nothing negative about our stay.

                  It was well located and provided basic acommodation in a straightforward way.

                  Convenience (15 minute walk to Bank Station, in the City), and practicity (oven hobs, microwave), modern apart hotel.

                  Problem on room internet in the last day of stay (although internet still worked in the wifi common area). Lack of oven.
