Sundial Court Reviews

Lovely historic building, which made our stay more special. The situation was great, just in the middle of different tube stations, so we could choose which one to go depending on destination. Very friendly and educated staff who kept the rooms really clean and comfortable. I have recommended it to my friends and I would definitely stay there in my next visit to London.

Very handy for the area we wanted to explore. Loved the location. Thought the rooms were very good value. Great to have the kitchen so that we could if needed have breakfast, supper and make ourselves drinks as well as keep the wine chilled.

Customer review

It´s my once-in-a-life-time-catch when it comes to accomodations! The Barbican-area and the closeness (walking-distance for anyone not disabled) to I would say the best of the most, makes this an outstanding chance to stay in London city without getting ruined!

Customer review

Inexpensive, single rooms, one of realtively few East End altenatives to stay at.

Customer review

I liked meeting other people from other countries as my flatmates. For me it was perfect I could make my own dinner and was allowed to stay in when I felt under the weather for one day, unlike a B&B. Just like a hotel, but cheaper!

Customer review

Community kitchen is a nice way to save money and meet people.

Customer review

Unpretentious but clean and tidy, marvellous value for central London. All staff I dealt with were friendly, responsive and helpful. This is a good jumping off point for tourists; the Barbican Centre, Museum of London, Tower of London, Smithfield Market and River Thames are all within easy reach and transport links via Barbican Tube tation and Moorgate Tube/British Rail Stations are easy to reach. You can even take buses if that is your wont and sightsee as you travel.I would comment that, being a student Hall of Residence, there are brief periods when excited visitors are a bit noisy but it's not excessive, certainly much less so than many hotels in which I've stayed in London previously. It's excellent value for money.

Cheap accommodation but bizarre layout with need to climb a steep spiral staircase to get from bedroom to toilet/shower/kitchen. Rooms very hot. Good security with swipe card access and gated entrance.You need to make full payment before arrival and not on arrival as stated by HostelBookers - Sundial will chase you for this before arrival. Waitrose supermarket just around the corner, Tesco Express a little further away on other side of Barbican centre. Kitchen facilities OK . Breakfast and evening meal apparently available but I did not try these. Take aways and restaurants nearby. Bar was not open in evenings but pubs nearby

It was great to have a room to yourself for the price and a kitchen down the hall. Not to mention to prime location! Though everything is closed on the weekends
