“Cool yet Lonely”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Operated by Marriott. Stayed here for four nights. Threadneedles is a small hotel located in The City, far away from the main tourist areas of London, close enough to the Bank of England and other financial institutions. Wouldn't have stayed here if I wasn't required to for work. Quite expensive. It's only restaurant, called Bonds, has good food, though it closes at 11am on Sundays.

No pool, gym or onsite parking. Free wifi. Breakfast was pretty decent but not cheap. The omelet is a bargain!

The good value deal we were offered allowed us to visit London with me being able to visit some old haunts from the early 1970s.The City was buzzing when we arrived but changes over the weekend to the extent that the hotel restaurant is not open on a Saturday evening.This was no problem as we ate out on both nights.As might be guessed,the hotel was once a bank.They have made a fantastic job of the conversion.Our room was a reasonable size looking over the city roofs and cranes building the fantastic skyscraper offices.We were told we had been upgraded but felt that a lower grade room might have been somewhat cramped.It was also very warm throughout thr hotel on a cloudy weekend and we were told that the A/C might not be as efficient as hoped for caused by the original construction of the building.I could imagine this being a problem in a hot summer.But,this does not detract from a very good hotel with helpful Staff.Travel to other parts of London is easy with Bank Underground just round the corner.

Last July I stayed at the Threadneedles Marriott Hotel and am happy to report that my stay there was a wonderful experience. The employees are so nice and helpful. There is a lovely restaurant annexed to the hotel and many great restaurants very close by. Jamie Oliver's Italian restaurant is right up the street and there is an excellent Oriental restaurant directly across the street. On Saturdays there is the Borough's Market at London Bridge, within walking distance from the hotel. It is a great food market and a great experience. There is a tube station (Bank) very close by the hotel. The hotel provides a bowl of fresh fruit and two tall bottles of water daily. There was an espresso machine in the room and my room and bed were very comfortable and I enjoyed the nice, big marble bathroom. Half a block away is the Royal Exchange (look it up) with restaurants and great shops. I enjoyed speaking with Mr. Romao Catrapona, the manager, who told me of the hotel's past - it used to be the First Bank and the interesting glass dome over the lobby had been removed, pane by pane, during WWII and afterwards replaced. The beautiful St. Paul's church is nearby and should not be missed.

Good location, just 5-7 minutes walk from the Bank underground station. Though not many restaurant around and not much to see in the area.
The rooms are really nice and have all the essential facilities. The toiletries used the bathroom are of fine quality. The tea coffee making facility and the minibar are great.
Friendly staff the the decor is very Victorian and contemporary mix. They do not have a leisure centre.

Room Tip: Ask for upgrade. They would upgrade if a room available. High floor is recommended.

We stayed here for two nights 24/25th August as our daughter was being married at Devonshire Terrace a few minutes walk away. The entrance hall is wonderful and checking-in is relaxed, informal and friendly and we were made to feel very welcome. Nothing seemed too much trouble. The room was spacious, lovely toiletries in the bathroom and complimentary bottles of water. We had room service breakfast on day one, one breakfast was enough for two. On day two we dined in the restaurant with our party and had a full breakfast, once again the staff were polite and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
The local car park (booked through the hotel) was only a street away but you need to be careful to check how to get there as we drove around in circles for a while before finding it.
One of our party was disabled and had a well equipped room on the ground floor though there are two doors to go through to get to the room, which have to be pulled open, not easy if you are walking with sticks. However the staff will help if required.
An ideal location for our requirements, would definitely visit again.

Great hotel and incredible staff. They are etremely helpful and always trying to meet your needs. We stayed there 5 nights and felt like we knew the staff when we left.
The only downside is there location Thet're located on the edge of the financial district with very few places to eat on the weekend. This is compounded because the resturant thats connected to the hotel is also closed.
Overall if your company is picking up the tab and you're there during the week to conduct business.

Dear Clark W
Thank you for your review. I'm pleased our staff looked after you so well. Since yuor stay with us there are more and more restaurants opening and so, whilst the weekends are still very peaceful in the City ( a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the West End, which is only a few short tube stops away), there is a choice of good restaurants in the area.
I do hope you will be back again soon.
Best regards
Lawder Smith

My partner and I visited the hotel on a quick London break for some Harrods shopping. We booked the Champagne in the city room, which included champagne and canapes on arrival - I must say we did not expect the canapes to be so wonderful! The hot prawn skewers were just to die for!

We had a relaxing afternoon in our beautiful room scattered with rose petals! It was clean, comfortable and luxurious with some extra luxuries like bath salts, cokes & ice cream to enjoy whilst watching some TV - we did plan to watch a movie and relax, however the hotel recently changed their TV service which meant there was no premier movies available to rent - to apologise, the hotel management gave us a bottle of wine - we asked to swap this for two glasses of champagne as we were planning to have cocktails in the bar instead, and didn't want a full bottle of wine - they obliged without question. The bathroom had a bath and separate shower, which was very handy to get us both ready in time!

We made the mistake of heading to Marco Pierre Whites restaurant that evening, the staff were rude, we were placed by a drafty door on a February Evening and they did not seem very pleased about calling us a car to take us back to the hotel.... wish we had stayed in the hotel for dinner!

On our return our barman made us some wonderful cocktails, served with a smile and some joyous banter. He even made us up our own cocktail not on the menu, at the end of the evening. It was so relaxing to be in such beautiful surroundings with staff to which nothing seemed too much trouble.

The reception is a very beautiful area, where we enjoyed drinking our cocktails. The ceiling dome is just spectacular and a delight to sit under.

We retired to our room to a very comfortable bed and slept like logs! The curtains lock out the light well and the room was very quiet, didn't hear a sound.

We ordered breakfast in our room, I believe they called it New York Breakfast (Waffles, fresh fruit, Cream & Maple Syrup) it arrived nice and warm, deliciously fresh and tasted wonderful. The coffee was nice filtered coffee, however we would have preferred the option of a cappuccino.

The staff were very wonderful as we planned our next days shopping in Harrods and then our journey home. They were all so pleasant and accommodating, and that makes all the difference when you are off for a 'getaway'

We will be staying here again, hopefully for a little longer next time - work permitting!

Thank you Threadneedles for a very relaxing stay for two very hard working business owners, it really is just what we needed!

Room Tip: Our room did not have much of a view, but we didn't book this hotel for a room with a view - so...
