“Another great Premier Inn...central location without the pricetag”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The Premier Inn (London City) is located on Old Street, London a few minutes north of Old Street tube station. I get the impression that the hotel is one of Premier Inn's range of new hotels that are popping up around the capital, as it was certainly well-appointed, clean and professional-looking.
From the outset, the reception was professional....although many people don't like the somewhat 'faceless' automated check-in service, I'm a bit of a fan - I bypassed the queue checking in 'the old fashioned way' and was in my large double bedroom, with a sofa, within 5 minutes.

...and the bedrooms are the best bit; irrespective of location you will get an identical-looking bedroom, with excellent bed, tea/coffee facilities, flatscreen TV and a great bath/shower - the water pressure in the shower could have stripped wallpaper, it was great to wake up to! Despite being central London, and a big hotel (250ish rooms), there was very little noise and I got a great night's sleep (and that's guaranteed!)

Any criticisms? Just the one....the queue for the breakfast buffet (which was very good) made it appear that breakfast was full; as a result, many people gave up and went on their way. What was actually the case was that there was only one waitress seating people (so it was slow rather than busy) and the queue started near the reception (so it 'looked' busy).....come on Premier Inn, think about re-positioning the start of the queue and/or using more staff - you're potentially loosing money!!
Overall though, another great stay at a Premier Inn....at almost half the price of a tiny single room at the next closest hotel ('flower of Scotland') there's no contest.

Room Tip: Although you can't choose when you book with Premier Inn, most of the room are identical so chat...

We booked this hotel as we were going to a couple of shows over a weekend and thought we would make a break of it. We booked this hotel when it was on offer so only paid £49 per night. It is one of the best Premier Inns we have stayed at. It is in a great location only 5 minutes walk from Old Street tube station and has a very nice restaurant. We paid for the buffet breakfast which was really nice. The room was comfortable with everything we needed and we asked to use an iron and ironing board which was brought up to us straight away. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting London and who wants to pay a reasonable price for something nice. Will definitely stay here again.

Nice hotel, you could really stay here and have a relaxing time in the heart of London.
Clean place overall and nice staff.
Not a big fan of carpets on the floor.... those things get dirty with time and never get _really_ clean, but nothing we thought about.

Liked it and will come back.

This hotel was perfect for our short break to London. It was (long) walking distance to St Paul's and the Thames. The breakfast is great value when you have children and it sets you up for the day. The evening meal was great. The hotel caters very well for tourists. The decor was quite stylish in the public areas.

The reception staff were young and enthusiastic, and all staff were pleasant.

I stayed here on the 13th of January for one night, and the service from all staff was fantastic. They were incredibly friendly. The room was also very comfy and very clean. The bar is pretty cheap also for London! Also, only a 2 min walk to old street tube station :)

My husband and i stayed at this hotel from 7th to the 10thof jan . the hotel was near an underground station 2 stops from kings cross . also there was a bus stop just outside hotel and opposite too . It was so easy to get into the centre . the rooms were excellent , the staff were so helpful & pleasant , & last but not least the food was lovely . the offer of £22.95 for breakfast and a three course dinner + a drink was excellent value . would certainly stay again .

We stayed for 3 nights and had breakfast each morning. Very good service, spotless room, all staff throughout helpful and smiling from cleaners to reception. Very close to tube station. our first night was spoiled by busy builders outside in early hours, not a problem we had a full refund and change of room without any fuss and had a blissful 2nd nights sleep! Would definitely return and recommend to anyone visiting London.
