iQ City, London

City offers an enviable location in between Clerkenwell and Shoreditch with a huge amount on offer. A buzzing food, drink, art, shopping and nightlife scene is just to the East, while just to the south is the cultural hub and architectural wonder of the Barbican Centre, with a busy calendar of concerts, films and exhibitions. It’s a short walk from City University, a quick bus ride into town and a short walk to Old Street and Barbican Tube Stations, meaning it’s easy to get anywhere in London in no time.

The building itself is brilliantly equipped with a cinema room, a big social space and a range of en suite rooms, studios and apartments available for solo living or sharing. All rooms have double beds and underfloor heating, with WiFi, bills and contents insurance all included in the price.
