Another great 7 day visit in London mostly due to the accommodations at Barclay House. I like the care that goes into making sure I will have a good stay each and every time I come. High-end sheets and towels, comfortable beds, beautiful German bathrooms, constant great restaurant recommendations, full bars on wifi, close to the Tube and market, a cobbler at the end of the street to shine shoes, great seamstress to drop my clothes with. Can't ask for anything better. Barclay House is hard to beat. This picky Californian has found her home away from home.
