“clean and friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Stayed for a long weekend in December and although the hotel was busy the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. I believe the hotel is fairly new but the rooms were spotlessly clean along with the rest of the hotel. The bar prices were very reasonable for London too. When you come out of Old Street tube station take exit 1 and the hotel is a short walk up on the right hand side (towards the NIG building).

I took my 8 yr old daughter to london for the weekend with a friend and her mother. Being an all female group we didn't want to be too far out of town, but similarly didn't want to be in the thick of it. This hotel was perfect, the staff were excellent, we got two family rooms together on the 10th floor and had an amazing view. The rooms were clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The hotel was also very quiet given it was a weekend.

The girls weren't keen to use the underground so we caught the bus into town which was simple and cheap. The staff went out of their way to find out which bus routes (the 76 and 243) we needed and where we needed to go.

I would definately return to this hotel, if not just for the views and the breakfast, and the kids ate free, what more could you ask for?

Room Tip: If you can get a room on the 10th floor or above you'll get a great view.

This hotel is in a good location, has friendly staff, modern clean rooms, comfy beds. breakfast looked good, but I didn't eat there. It's a 4 minute walk to the tube station. Little tip : On Saturday and Sunday there is free parking, we found a space just outside the back of the hotel. Bargain!! We had a great time and would stay here again.

Stayed 4 nights at beginning of December. Spotlessly clean so pleasantly surprised. The staff cannot do enough. very polite and very prompt with any problems which occurred. Cannot say it was cheap but very central. If you know that part of London, it is on top of City, walking to Spitalfield, Shoreditch etc. (Forget about all the rubbish on the streets in the surrounding area, this is London). Did not have breakfast but had a snack at the bar in the evening which was very enjoyable. Bar service excellent and again, all was kept very clean.

Only fault was that the bedwear consists of polyester pillows/duvet. There should be pillow protectors on the pillows for hygiene purposes. The bed was extremely comfortable though. Would recommend, especially if you get an offer with the "saver" deals.

Room Tip: Higher up, the better.

Stayed on the night of the 7th December 2012. Went to sleep and was woken up by an unknown female walking into my room. She'd somehow got a keycard as she said she was my wife and tried to sleep in my bed! Staff said as she was my wife she had a right to a key even though the twin room was for a friend and I. I didn't know this women, even her name!
Staff refused to apologise, were obstructive and unhelpful even when I presented this intoxicated female to them. They began to argue and state I'd have the leave the hotel but they would refund the cost?!!!????!!!nI have written to Premier Inn requesting compensation.
If your a female think twice before booking here. They don't understand safety issues for their customers and could leave you compromised. The room was ok though, clean and tidy and comfy enough. No problems with the hotel, price or location. Just incompetent and poorly trained staff.

This is a real find. Near to Old Street Tube Station so really convenient for many parts of London.
I endorse what other people have said - clean, good size room, friendly and capable staff.
There was a fault with the air conditioning in my room which was corrected while I was out for a meal.
Excellent breakfast.
Thoroughly recommended

We stayed Sunday 2nd Dec. As previously reviewed we couldnt fault it.
Great place to stay. Great service friendly staff and all at fantastic price.
The tube station is minutes walk away is very easy to get to.
We have stayed at a number of different hotel chains this year, this was our 12th trip, but Premier Inn has become our favourite place to stay. (and we have booked Manchester over Christmas as well)
Excellent everytime.
