Convenient hotelPosted Jul 16, 2014
We had three days to kill in London, and looked for an affordable hotel online. The Citadine was in a very convenient location, and had good feedback. The room was well equipped despite its small size, - only just enough space to walk around the bed. The place was clean, had a good bathroom (shower over bath) loads of storage, and a kitchenette. My fussy 15 year old daughter didn't complain once. All I would suggest it lacks is a cafetiere or similar coffee making device

Perfect for a concert at the BarbicanPosted Jul 6, 2014
Pros: Cleanliness, convenient location.
Cons: The rubber mat in the bath is faintly depressing!
Location: Great location if you need to be in the City of London. There is a Tesco Express just along the road if you need any provisions
Nicer bedding than I've previously experienced at a Citadines. And there was a small quantity of tea/coffee/sugar/UHT which would probably do you if you are just there for one night. Super clean, as always, and surprisingly quiet given the location on Goswell Road.

Close to tubePosted May 9, 2014
Pros: The little kitchen is brilliant.
Location: Close to the tube
Hotel staff very helpful. We booked a double room but were given one with a drop down bed. We went back to reception and they changed it immediately. Nothing too much trouble and always smiling.

Excellent facilityPosted May 6, 2014 on Hotels.com
I stay in so many London hotels and this is one of the best value. Well equipped , clean, well located, and spacious (by London standards).

Excellent hotelPosted Apr 15, 2014
I planned a trip to London with my husband and small dog. I found it extremely difficult to find a hotel which would accept dogs and was delighted when I found the Citadines Barbican. It was a truly wonderful experience for all of us.

Try not to go on carpet cleaning dayPosted Apr 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
I liked the hotel, but they decided to clean the carpets in the hallway while we were there, and it smelled sooo strong of chemicals! I wished they could have opened a window or given us a room on another floor so I didn't feel like I had to hold my breath and run from the elevator to our room.

A home away from homePosted Apr 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
For those seeking to escape the normal fare of tightly condensed and sometimes suffocating mid-range London hotels, the Citadines Apartment hotel at Barbican is certainly worth a look. For starters, befitting an apartment hotel set up, the units have more space, alongside more 'make your self at home' facilities than the usual hotels boast. The kitchens boast a range, microwave, dishwasher and full sets of utensils alongside tea and coffee making facilities and storage space. The separate bathroom features a shower/bath combination while closets with coat hangers, a working desk, wifi and limited pay channel access also feature. The units are serviced twice a week, but that only adds to the homely feel, while fresh towels are available when required, and the hotel offers a self service laundry on its lower ground floor. While its location is off the beaten tourist track, the Barbican tube is just two minutes down the road, and is just a couple of stops along the line from King's Cross. A Sainsburys supermarket sits two doors along from the tube where you can stock up the pantry for in house meals, while there are plenty of eateries nearby. If yours is a short stay in the city, the advantages the Citadines offers are probably limited. For those around for longer as I was (five nights), the apartment offers good value and your own space, which is not something many of the hotels in its price bracket can provide.
