We booked here for one night for a theatre break. Wish it was for longer. We wanted somewhere convenient for the Barbican, to see the RSC production of Richard II with David Tennant and the location was vindicated on leaving St Paul's tube station when one exit was signposted to St Paul's and the other stairway pointed to The Barbican. Getting to the hotel, there was a short queue at check-in, as this was early afternoon, and the desk had about 6 staff at individual check-in stations. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, asking about room preferences, before offering us an upgrade from the Superior room we had booked to an Executive room overlooking the atrium. This is a large business class hotel, so having only 3 lifts to service the 7 floors is probably insufficient. This was exacerbated by one of the lifts being out of service, so there was a wait for a lift to arrive. The room was spacious and clean and the bed large with a firm mattress. The shower was a fixed oblong plate style head over the bath, giving a decent shower that could have supplied more water flow. We chose a breakfast-inclusive rate, knowing that the City is mostly closed on weekends and cafes can be hard to find. The buffet was extensive, plentiful and fresh and the many breakfast staff were attentive with coffee service and clearing away used plates.. In actual fact the hotel is very close to St Paul's Cathedral so there are loads of restaurants and coffeee shops (Pret and Starbuck's - this being London). The hotel has a 24 hour bar on the ground floor and a rooftop terrace with a fabulous view of the cathedral and the City skyline. This is generally a well-placed, stylish and comfortable hotel and based on this experienced we would not hesitate to book again and recommend it to others.
