In Focus: Thistle City Barbican

Located on the edge of the city in walking distance of the popular areas of Clerkenwell, Shoreditch and Hoxton and with the famous Barbican centre 5 minutes walk away the Thistle City Barbican is an ideally located venue for meetings or private celebrations.

Elizabeth Masella from the hotel comments “We are in a brilliant location, close to several Underground and Overground stations.  Different bus routes are conveniently located within 5 minutes walk from the Hotel.  We have 13 flexible meeting rooms with 463 bedrooms, on site restaurant and bar, and leisure facilities.  We provide complimentary Superfast WiFi to all our guests.  We serve Costa Coffee in our Costa Commotion.  The staff is brilliant and nothing is too much trouble (as can be seen from our testimonials).”

With accommodation on site the hotel is the perfect training venue, as experience by client CITB who use the venue for training events throughout the year.

“Initially they were looking for a venue within their challenging budget, which we were able to do” comments Masella “then when arriving on site they required a flexible team available to them when they needed us. The group size of 17 is a great fit for us so of course it all went very well and we’ve built a lasting relationship with them and they have referred several departments to us since.”

CITB are now in their third year of using Thistle City Barbican, demonstrating how developing lasting relationships with clients is important to the hotel.

Its not just CITB who have been impressed with the hotel and its service, with feedback being positive across the board, recent feedback has included:

“This was an important event for us as it was a new venue for all of our delegates.  The staff were amazing, they were polite and helpful and really couldn't do enough to ensure our day went really well, which I truly Thank them for.” 

Debbbie Coe, Global Mediation

“I totally forgot to say a thank you and get a big clap from the party goers for all your hard work re running around and serving us with respect and the biggest smiles!  It was without a doubt some of the best service I have ever seen or had!  And I have attended quite a few events in my time.  So I would like to say a belated thank you.” 

Ms Karina Aidoo

 “Nothing is too much trouble for the Meetings & Events team.  We spend time needed with the client prior to the event and we are happy to receive them to go over their final details.  We are also on hand during the event day to ensure that nothing is required by the client.  To top this off, our Operational team is on-hand to cater to the clients every need.  Our feedback is great and we are proud of our long term relationships with our clients!” Masella concludes.
