Overall I was satisfied. Room was decent and it’s London so maybe overpriced but again it’s London. One random thing was staff knocking on the door in the morning while I was sleeping off my hangover. Then I answered it and he just said ‘no worries’. Yea cheers for waking me up to tell me that dude. Random and annoying. That’s the only complaint I have.

Warm welcome, good location and hotel ”

Walking distance from Upper Streets many restaurants, really excellent customer service

Andrew Perera at the Thistle saved the day: Agoda had been an absolute nightmare and I discovered the day before departure that only one room was booked, when two were paid for and confirmed. The customer service 'specialists' with Agoda were completely unhelpful. Fortunatly the hotel managed to step in and retrieve the situation and create some happy customers. Reception staff were friendly on our arrival and check-in was easy. The rooms were clean and comfortable and certainly an improvement on the Hilton in Rotherhide (where we stayed during our last visit)and my colleague reported a good nights sleep,as did I, so we headed down to the pool for a morning swim ... Unfortunately we were unable to use the fitness facitilities due to our arrival and departure time (we had to leave before 0830), so we headed back to our rooms a little disappointed (in fairness we could have checked on our way to bed). I am unable to report on the food, as we headed out (to Upper Street, well known Islington street off City Road and had a very enjoyable meal), but the menu at the hotel looked quite interesting - usual sort of hotel prices. We also had breakfast elsewhere (that we could easily do this due to the location was another plus). We were working in SE London, but there are good public transport connections with all of London very easily accessible Both my colleague and I would be happy to stay again - better still if we had time to try out the fitness facilities - but we would book through another company

Great stay in a clean and friendly hotel”

I stayed at the Thistle Barbican for a week on business. I can honestly say that this was one of the best hotels in Londaon that I have stayed in. The rooms were very clean, the hotel facilities were superb (love the swimming pool, sauna, steam room etc). There are 3 tube stations withing easy reach (Old Street, Angel & Barbican), so travel in/out of the centre was easy. Breakfast was of good quality, buffet style, but plenty of choices on offer. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. I would definately reccomend this hote, and will stay here again.

Great weekend in a great hotel”

I stayed at the Thistle Barbical with my Wife for a weekend. The hotel was safe, secure, clean and withing walking distance to multiple tube stations. Breakfast was good. Great to have a swimming pool, sauna, steam room etc to help unwind after walking round the city all day. We really enjoyed this hotel and would definately stay here again.
