Very pleasant reception staff. Good breakfast offering. Fast wifi
View of air conditioning units. Room next to lift which went 'ting' every time the doors opened. Thin walls - could hear the phone conversation of the woman next door and footsteps and loud voices in the corridor.
Staff were friendly and helpful, reception area clean and pleasant. I had one light evening meal in the restaurant, which was fine. I didn't have time to make use of the other facilities, so cannot comment on these.
Couldn't find my booking on arrival, but resolved within 15 minutes. Room was small (single)and dated, but clean. Lighting in bathroom was poor. Shower/bath tap function a bit inefficient. Tv Radio sound distorted. The swipe card key for my room didn't work and had to be re swiped at reception 2 days running ( This was in a separate building, so a bit of a nuisance)
Room was nice and the staff were great , especially the concierge and reception. Great facillities and breakfast was pretty good.
For 4 hours in the night a car alarm was going off . I thought something might of been done sooner. Also on top of that a loud humming noise was coming from the ceiling space above so overall we got about 2 hours sleep.
Helpful staff, great WiFi, great breakfast.
very friendly staff! comfortable room good WiFi connection
Location - good for Kings Cross-St Pancras and also walking distance to Islington(for good choice of food and entertainment). Small but comfortable and clean rooms. Hotel is a little old-fashioned but the price and location more than compensate for that. very friendly staff. Good pool/sauna. Close to a few pubs, places to eat and supermarkets. Buses to Kings Cross etc just a few minutes walk away. East walking to the City of London (and the Museum of London and Barbican)
Staff,Price,Facilities, Location in that order
Bedroom too warm. Couldn't control temperature.
Good sized room, comfortable and clean
Couldn't see through the windows as the doubleglazing was totally fogged up. Would have expected breakfast to be included for price paid.
Very friendly staff, comfortable room
Not far from work
Paid for breakfast but never could eat it as queue to get into breakfast was around 45 mins. This has been on every occasion I have stayed and I stay at least 2 nights each week
Staff, bar and dining area
Too far from underground. Too slow on check in Bit of a rabbit warren to rooms, corridors a bit worn.
Comfortable bed. Room service was prompt. Good breakfast.
The door could not be locked from the inside. There was no heat control and so, the room was very hot (no air-conditioning, either)! Only premium rooms have air-conditioning. Reception never answered calls.
Leisure facilities pool & gym. Good English breakfast with lot of choices, overnight parking.
Carpet needed up grading.
The concierge was very friendly and helpful with all my public transport questions.
Easy access to underground and Central London
Very nice hotel, helpful staff, very nice breakfast
Everything from friendly staff, good room size, varied delicious breakfast, proximity to underground station, reliable fast wi-fi.
Got upgraded from a twin room to a family room on arrival. After travelling all day - it was great to find a really comfortable room with everything you could wish for..phew!! The breakfast the next morning was fantastic. Although a little off the beaten track on the Northern line, this meant noise from traffic was at a minimum. Loved the spa facilities and made best use of them the next morning. Absolutely fab. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
Breakfast was good Helpful staff Good family rooms
The thistle cicy hotel barbican was way beyond what I had expected. To start the friendly helpful check in, in a beautiful spacious lobby with a lovely team of staff , Then the rooms. Excellent in every way. Clean, fresh, very comfortable beds and plenty of tea making supplies. the pool,spa, gym etc. Perfect ! After a great nights sleep down to a first class breakfast. Every choice imaginable all presented well and then very tasty !!!! Lovely staff kept us topped up with tea and coffee and kept our table clear as we went up for our next choices. We were made to feel very welcome and special guests. The front of house gentleman seating us all remembered us on our second morning. That felt very nice considering the number of people he deals with.all in all I have already recommended your hotel to friends and family and will certainly stay with you again if I get a chance. Thank you very much :-)
Nothing !!!! The hotel, the rooms, the food and without exception all your staff were top rate
Large indoor room space for families Indoor services Room cleaniness Many breakfast options The best value for money ratio among many hotels in London for years
Wifi signal not so strong inside rooms Location quite far from main tourist hotspots
Staff was amazing and the breakfast was out of the world!
Not much going on in the area. We walked for a while from the Barbican Tube stop, recommend using different tube stop!
We loved the hotel, little dated but very clean tidy and pleasant. Old street station only 10 mins walk even with a 5 & 7 year old children
Rooms too hot, and beds too small. Poor service at bar. Tiny rooms. Smelly corridors. Empty minibars. Noisy, big and old air con. Very tired rooms!
