Very pleasantly surprised by quality and service given the reasonable price for this hotel. Although room was not overly big it was very comfortable, clean and relaxing. Hotel great room facilities with sofas, newspapers and tea/coffee facilities was well received and appreciated. Very close to tube station and within easy walking distance to London Bridge and Thames River along with Trafalgar square, St Pauls etc

Historical Traveler Reviews Club Quarters Gracechurch London
A Great Value, Smart Hotel
We have just returned from an enjoyable weekend staying at Club Quarters. The location, though quiet at the weekend as it is in the heart of the City, is ideally placed for transport links and there are a couple of tube stations within a short walking distance. The hotel itself is very comfortable and the rooms are above average in size for London. We had everything we could want in our room: plenty of hanging space, toiletries, a coffee maker and best of all, an incredibly comfortable bed. We got an excellent rate staying here at the weekend and we plan on returning next time we visit London.
Booked hotel without any idea of location and although slightly worried as it was not in a central area, it worked out fairly well - only 10 minute walk from Liverpool station which got us onto the Central Line and close enough to the Thames and some tourist areas of interest. The staff were courteous if not friendly, the room was adequate if slightly lacking in natural light and I must admit I was disappointed in a a 4* hotel not having a bath in the bathroom, just a shower.
Great value clean and comfortable
Great value, speedy check in (and out!). Room was spotless.The location is not central BUT it's less than half the price of worse hotels in central London.
Brilliant value for a clean, comfortable hotel
I stayed at the hotel for a weekend in december. The builing is an old bank and the lobby is gorgeous, there are newspapers and a coffee machine in case you have to wait around, although the check in is so quick via an automatic machine that you wont have to.
I had a double room, which did not have a view, but did have a large comfortable double bed and a large bathroom. The room was comfortably furnished and spotlessly clean. The room was cleaned each day and the towels were changed.
I got the tube into London for sightseeing on the Saturday and Sunday - I got a black cab back on the Saturday night and it cost £14. I spent Monday at Leadenhall market, which is small, but has some lovely shops. I also has a cheap breakfast at the Wetherspoons pub next to the hotel on the Monday morning (it appears to be closed on Sunday, which is a shame).
I could not fault this hotel and plan to return for a weekend in the summer.
Excellent weekend value
I booked this through lastminute uk for a low rate of £56 to stay in early Feb and it's probably the best value I've had in central London. The room was fine and very clean with a nice coffee maker. It is a very anonymous, low fuss kind of place, but comfortable.
This part of the city is quiet on weekends but there's buses to Oxford street virtually at the door and you're only short walk from Liverpool street station (and the Sunday morning Petticoat Lane market!). I found you can do some great shopping with the money saved by staying here.
Good value for money
I stayed at Club Quarters on a Saturday night through a deal with Last.minute.com for £55.00 room only. I found that this was good value for money for the facilties of the hotel. The hotel was clean and comfortable although the rooms a little small. The check in precedure is very inhospitable (you just put your credit card in a machine and it gives you your room key and check out procedures). Room service was quick and efficient. If you want to visit the sites of London it is definately not the place to stay. Nothing is open passed 4pm in the city on the weekend. Taxi's to the centre of London are approx £13 so it can work out expensive. All in all the hotel is in a quiet location out of the bussle of London.
Shame about check in
Stayed in the Club Quarters, Gracechurch at the end of January. It was a lovely building, the rooms were very clean and more than adequate. My only complaint would be the downright rudeness of the lady who greeted us at check in. As this was our first impression of the hotel, it really did leave us feeling unsettled and spoiled what would have otherwise been a lovely stay.
Excellent Quality for the Price
I stayed one Saturday night at the Club Quarters Gracechurch in the City of London, for about GBP 57 incl. VAT. My single room was quite small, but had extremely modern furnishings (quite comfortable) and a very modern bathroom. There was also a coffeemaker with drip coffee and tea, as well as free high-speed Internet usage. My view was of a small space between two buildings, slightly larger than an air shaft...however, I could still hear some street noise! (But it wasn't too loud.)
The lobby is quite impressive-it is 2 stories high, and seems to have been the entrance hall of an old bank or financial institution. There is a good selection of books and newspapers, as well as coffee and tea.
I did not try the restaurant - an Argentinian steakhouse - because they charged GBP 13 for breakfast. Any day except Sunday you can go next door to a very large pub which offers a cooked breakfast for GBP 2.98! The City is completely dead on Sunday: nothing is open. However, there are a number of pubs, restaurants and small food stores open Monday-Saturday, and many other stores open Monday-Friday. In any case, this location is very convenient for the Tube and bus: the Bank and Monument stations are both very close. And it's only a 10-minute walk from Liverpool Street Station, in case anyone is flying into Stansted and continuing via train to London (like I did).
Definitely a good value for the price!
Amazing value and quality
I stayed here for 6 days over the New Year (2005). The average sized room was on the top floor and was quite amazing for London. We had a nice view of the Lloyd's and Swiss Re (gherkin) buildings. The bed had a large comforter and a single sheet with soft plush pillows (no heavy blankets!). The bathroom was a decent size with a full sized shower (no bath). A notice indicated that free wireless internet was available in the rooms but I didn't actually use it. There's a small gym in the basement with a treadmill, an exercise bike or two and free weights.
The location is the business district of London. The lovely Leadenhall market is almost opposite the hotel. There's not much going on in this area at night (or during the day really) but thanks to the great London Underground this is irrelevant: both Bank and Monument stations are a few minutes walk from the hotel. Oxford Circus tube station is 5 stops from Bank on the Central line. A taxi from Leicester Square to the hotel costs about £10.
This is a corporate club hotel. I think non-members can only book weekends and maybe extended holiday periods (like I did) but I'm not certain. I booked through a British last minute website but I have seen it available on the big US travel sites. I paid £350 for 6 days which is really a steal for this quality in London. I have paid almost as much for hotels in Paddington which were appalling.
I stayed for one night in the heart of Center City right near all of the best restaurants and shopping in the city. The room was small but for the unbelieveable price of $64.00 it was well worth it. The room had modern amenities was very clean and quiet.
The check-in was a breeze and the check-out took a matter of seconds ( 20 to be exact) with the automated teller machines in the lobby.
There was an acceptable gym and an unusaul selection of room service meals delivered from local restaurants. All in all "A GREAT DEAL!"

The last stop of the day was a famous London Institution, Gordon's Wine Bar, for a drink with David. The bar is very cool, it's an underground bunker with low ceilings and a distinctly World War Two Blitz feel about it. I could almost imagine sitting cowering in there while the walls shook and the dirt fell from the ceiling as the bombs fell overhead, except that the bar was full ...
... Regularly the gardens were opened on Saturday and Sunday, and an afternoon of amusement and dancing would be tainted by serving tea.

It seemed that every family from Greater Metropolitan London had had the same idea as us, with a nautically-themed festival hosted in the precinct of Cutty Sark and the Old Royal Naval College. After a lot of argey-bargey, we made it to the restaurant that Nicole had recommended, and despite the number of visitors to the usually-sleepy village we were seated and served within minutes.
