“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

Stayed here on business a few weeks ago. Couldn't fault it. Great staff, lovely food. Decor is nice and was very clean and tidy. I would say it's more suitable to a business person rather than a tourist but would imagine it would be equally as nice for either.

Dear SarahLouise1956
Thank you for leaving a review, I'm delighted that you felt able to rate us 5/5 and you are right that we are equally suitable for business or leisure guests. Our great location in the heart of The City, makes us an ideal venue for those needing to be in the financial district for work, yet with Bank Tube station only minutes away, leisure guests can be in the heart of the Wsst End in 10 minutes.
Best regards

I stayed here on business last month and the hotel was stunning, the dome ceiling was beautiful and very impressive. The staff were curteous and very helpful, I was offered a glass of complimentary prosecco during check in, so they were gteed a glowing review :-) Well located close to the underground, and within a good walking distance to Spitalfields Market.
The neighbourhood is very quiet over the weekends though, we were hoping to eat at nearby Jamie's Italian but its shut at the weekend.
Breakfast was very nice, a good selection for those not wanting a full english - i had the new yorker which is waffles, fruit and bacon. The room was spacious, very clean and perfect for me.
I cannot comment on the price as work picked up the tab, but I would definately visit again.

I stayed here on a weekend in March while attending a course in London. The hotel is lovely and quiet at the weekend and I had a super room. The only negative would be that the city is quiet on the weekend and the hotel lacks a bit of buzz for the solo traveller...

Dear Mandela10
I am deligted to hear that you enjoyed your recent stay with us, but sorry to hera that you were having to work over the weekend.
It is true that the City of London is much quieter at weekends (isn't it nice to have peace and quiet and clear roads in the centre of London !), but with Bank tube station only a hundred yards from the hotel, it is so easy to get to all the major shopping and tourist sights - Oxford circus ( ideal for the shopping meccas of Oxford Street and Regent Street) is only 10 minutes on the tube.
I do hope you will be back again soon and have time to enjoy all that London has to offer.

Location makes walking a strong ;possibility...that's the plus.

Upside:

Front desk staff young but personable and professional.

Downsides.

Dining room staff is unpolished, young, inexperienced and impersonal.

Food expensive, even by London standards. Breakfast for two easily $100, believe it or not.

Rooms are not large and avoid lower floors. Noisy, they're practically at street level. Double decker bus looks in your window. View is to building across alley with no privacy and Mon-Fri workers looking in your window. Got moved to a suite. It was smaller than first room without any dresser draws. None.

Got a good rate for London, but other than that. Not a great experience.

Room Tip: high floor only

Dear Beachrestaurantfan

I was sorry to read from your review of your disappointment with your stay ( although glad to hear that you felt it was a good rate and that our reception team were very personable).
Like most London hotels, we are surrounded by other equally high buildings and so the views from windows are inevitably of the buildings accross the road. In our case these are banks and offices, so only occupied during office hours. No one is facing your window in the evenings, early mornings or at weekends, as they would be if we had flats or other hotels opposite us.
I was very concerned to hear that you felt the restaurant staff at breakfast were unpolished, I have discussed your comments with our Restaurant Manager , who I know will address this with her team. With regards the price , we offer an a la carte breakfast, rather than a fixed price, so the cost does depend on how much and what you order.
I do hope that your disappointment on this occassion will not deter you from trying other Autograph Hotels.
Best regards

We booked this hotel last minute as we extended our stay in London. The value was good especially because we were upgraded to a suite. Except that the continental breakfast in the restaurant was very expensive. The staff at the hotel was very polite and professional. We were surprised that the hotel seemed to be not that busy given the quality. This is probably due to the location in the final district - quite a distance from most tourist attractions. It's much better as a business hotel than a tourist hotel for that reason. That said, we did walk to the Tower of London (20 minutes) and St Paul's Cathedral (15 minutes).

Dear Diverdad1
Thank you for your review, I'm delighted that you felt our hotel is great value for money.
It is true that we are in the centre of the financial district, so at weekends we are not surrounded by the crowded streets and noise of the central West End, BUT, it is so easy to get to the main shopping areas, theatre district and major attractions from here. With a bus stop rigt outside the hotel and Bank Underground station just a couple of minutes away, you can be in Oxford Street in 10 minutes. And, as you found out, we are within walking distance of TheTower of London and St Pauls Cathedral ( as well as Tower Bridge, HMS Belfast, The Museum of London, and The Millenium Bridge)
I hope you will be back again soon with more time to explore London.

We stayed two nights in this hotel and no complaints regarding the staff, the room or the hotel itself for that matter. However for those staying in London for vacation purpose be aware that this hotel is not geared for the first time tourist to this city. While the concierge/checkin personal (same) were professional and friendly, its apparent that the primary guest are there for business. We have done trips on the fly, as in this one, and can usually line up our activities rather quickly. Prime example is the Shelbourne Dublin in Ireland. Please note this is not a negative review of this hotel or staff.

Room Tip: My tip to all travelers is to request the highest floor to avoid traffic noise and furtherest from t...

Dear Mudwalker68
Thank you for your review, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us and liked the hotel and the staff.
Whilst a lot of our guests midweek are here on business ( we are in a prime business location just opposite the Bank of England), but at weekends our guests are all here for leisure and our staff are equally well able to look after both types of guests. For leisure guests, our Front Office staff are happy and able to make recommendations for places to vist , where to shop or what to see while in London as well as give directions and arrange transport.
Getting to the West End is so easy from Threadneedles Hotel as we have Bank tube station just a few minutes walk away.
I do hope you will be back again soon to explore more of London.

Hotel is in a great location for both tourism and business. Room was fabulous, cathedral ceiling, larger room with mural of usa capital on wall. Bathroom was large, almost 100 sq. Ft. Hotel staff was very accomodating and professional. No special requests needed other than early cab.

Room Tip: Ask for room with Washington DC mural on wall

Dear ledgeroni
Thank you for your review, I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay and appreciated that the hotel is equally suited to both business and leisure guests.
I am sorry to disappoint you however, the mural on the wall in your bedroom was not the US Capitol building, but it was St Paul's Cathedral which is only a short walk from the hotel. Each of our bedrooms has an oversize picture above the bedhead of a famous London landmark.
I do hope you will be back again soon to enjoy some of these landmarks which are all so easy to get to from Threadneedles Hotel.
