Really enjoyable stay, clean rooms, big hotel feel. Great health club with gym. No noise when I stayed, great night sleep. Would stay there again.

Staff werer svery welcoming and efficient, and it served the purpose - ie. a fairly cheap room for one when I was spending minimal time there other than asleep. The single rooms are a bit small, and the location is quite a long way from any tube station.

The hotel itself is fine, but to use the words 'City and Barbican' in it's name is more than a tad misleading. The hotel is ACTUALLY in a slightly rough feeling area about 15 minutes walk from the centre of Islington. It has 12 car parking spaces and if they're full, it's going to be 'on street' parking in the kind of area you wouldn't be comfortable leaving a nice car (although to be fair - mine DID survive the night). It's a fair old hike to a tube station too. In conclusion, the hotel itself is fine and represents fairly good value for money (although the concierge was probably the least helpful and least interested hotel concierge in the universe) and if you don't have a car, don't need to get to a tube station and just need somewhere clean to get your head down for the night - then it's probably OK.

Arrived at 2030 really struggled to be served in the restaurant which was open till after 2200 staff were preoccupied with setting up for breakfast. We needed to keep prompting them that we needed the next course.Our room was noisy due to some sort of generator, which run from 7pm to 3am. We stayed for 4 days and each day our tea and coffee facilities were not replenished until requested at reception. Room not serviced despite placing 'service my room' sign on door. Electronic door key stopped working twice. Staff do not speak very good english and keep asking you to wait whilst they find an English speaker. Spa/Pool rammed with too many users, not relaxing at all. WE PAID A FAIR SUM TO STAY HERE AND IT'S NOT VALUE FOR MONEY.

Hotel is a very good alternative to London's "bed and breakfast" style hotels.Even if you book basic room,it should be ok. Rooms are not so big,but clean,and hotel located within 10 minutes walk from underground station.So,if you go to London for a couple of days,and you don't want to pay a lot,remember about this hotel.
