Positive: location-very close to Barbican tube station, lots of space, modern designer interior design fixtures, fully stocked with cooking utensils in kitchen with fridge, comfy bed with comfy bed linens- best for those who are staying for more than a night. Negative: No restaurant, tiny elevators, kinda musty in the hallways, tiny lobby with only free coffee, it is very like living at an apartment building with only a small gym.

If you want a great location close to everything this area is a good choice but not at this property. Problems with overcharge and had to ask front desk staff over and over again to rectify. Seemed uninterested in helping fix an error they made. Room was claustrophobic and the pictures definitely are shot to make them seem way bigger. I don't think they have any housekeeping staff as we got our own towels and emptied our own trash everyday. Will stay in area again but choose other hotel.
