We stayed at this hotel for one night recently, ideally located for the 'city' and particularly the Barbican being less than a ten minute brisk walk away.
The check in and check out were easy and quick. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and a cot was provided within minutes of asking.
The room was very clean, as was bathroom, with a great shower. The lighting level in the room was a little low but that would be the only criticism.
We had our baby with us and the staff were so helpful and child friendly, particularly the restaurant staff. they even provided warm milk for the baby and an extra little pot of cous cous. we did have to pay for the night time baby milk as would be expected. The fish in the restaurant was good, but I would avoid the ribs on the next visit.
The pool was clean and the spa staff very accommodating.
We booked a little later than planned so had to take a premier executive room, but the extra space was ideal with the baby and for the location, we would not complain too much about the price.
Other points: bar staff helpful, limited on site parking (25 sterling), 30 min walk to King's Cross.
Overall we'd definitely stay again.
