Missing the Threadneedles Hotel is hard. Even harder than threading a needle with an unsteady hand. Its great iron windows with their patterned designs loom over the street with colourful window boxes and stone arches framing the doorways that demand attention and command authority. The interiors are just as sophisticated from the stained glass dome roof to the elegant period furnishings and decor that adorn the public areas. The boutique property has been voted one of the top 50 hotels in the world by Conde Nast Traveller, and it's not hard to see why.
Although the hotel has a largely traditional aesthetic, owing in part to its past life as a 19th century banking hall, the guest rooms of the hotel are all very modern with televisions and large, airy windows that seem to expand the light. Bonds Restaurant provides guests with the traditional sophistication of the Victorian era whilst serving a menu that is completely modern, treating its visitors to the best of both worlds. Bonds Bar, on the other hand, is open in the afternoons and evenings until 10pm and is a stylish and relaxing venue perfect for meeting up with fellow guests.
The hotel is located in the centre of The City of London within the capital's main finance district, making this an ideal hotel for those in town on business. The area still retains a sense of the old, with narrow streets and grand stone buildings with extravagant architecture. For those in the city on holiday it is just a short tube ride from South Bank, Covent Garden, Oxford Street and the Palace of Westminster as well as a multitude of other popular attractions. The nearest tube station is Bank on the Central, Northern and Waterloo & City Lines, which is a 3 minute walk away, giving guests quick and convenient access to the rest of the city.
