Thistle City Barbican Feb 15, 2011
I like this hotel. The location isn’t great, being a good ten minute walk from Old Street tube station and in a funny sort of place. The good thing about the location is it’s right opposite an excellent fish restaurant, which is a funny place for an excellent fish restaurant to be too. But the Thistle is quiet, which means you can sleep, and that’s more than you can say for most more central hotels. The decoration is all a little old fashioned, but that really isn’t important to a good night’s sleep. The neds are comfortable (if you like quite a firm mattress) and the rooms are clean. Americans should bear in mind that standard room sizes in London are smaller than they’re used to.

Again, unusually for the hotels that I get to stay in when I work in London, this hotel has a pool and a gym, for no additional charge. This makes evenings on your own much more pleasant. There is a nice looking lounge bar, which I haven’t used. Breakfast is at proper, properly spaced tables and tastes nice.

This is possibly the only hotel in London where I’ve been sent for work that I would consider spending my own money on. I’m staying again in April.

The two buildings deal was a bit confusing since part of our group was in building 1 when we were in 2. But it looked very nice in the main lobby, although I was only in there briefly. The rooms were decent sized, and clean with a flat screen TV. not something you see everywhere.
