    About

    The Thistle City Barbican Hotel is one of few hotels located in London's 'Square Mile,' a district famous for being home to the city's stock exchange. For obvious reasons, the hotel is ideal for business travelers, but it also offers terrific proximity to the art and culture hubs of central London, along with more eclectic neighborhoods to the east.

    Amenities and Services

    The Thistle City Barbican hotel is expertly equipped for meetings and business events of all sizes. Its thirteen meeting rooms boast LCD projectors and screens, and complimentary Wi-Fi is offered throughout the hotel. Both business travelers and those on vacation will enjoy the Otium Heath & Leisure Club, which offers an indoor pool and sauna. A mix of British and other European dishes are served for breakfast and dinner at the on-site 120 Central Brasserie, while the hotel's Bar 120 and CoMotion Bar are excellent for a drink and a light meal, or a coffee, respectively.

    Attractions

    Guests are sure to enjoy performances by the London Symphony Orchestra at the Barbican Centre, which is within walking distance of Thistle City Barbican. The markets, vintage shops, and independent bars and restaurants of the hip East London neighborhood Shoreditch are all nearby, and several convenient Underground stations make it easy to travel elsewhere in the city.
