“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

We stayed for 2 nights and were very pleased with the stay. Check in was quick and our room was ready 2 hours early, we stayed on the third floor over looking the building work being carried out at the hotel- did not hear any noise at all from this! Location is fab, few mins from the tube and a handy tesco express. Easy to walk down the river to Covent Garden / Oxford street etc. The hotel was extremely clean, room a good size for London with comfy beds. We will defiantly be booking to stay here again - great hotel at amazing price! A real find :)

This is a hotel i would stay at next time in London. Great and quietly located hotel near Blackfriars underground. Very good breakfast with wide range of food. Children eat for free! This is value for money!

Great place. Location is perfect. It's spotlesslessy clean and very comfortable. The staff are incredibly well trained and professional. It really is superb value for money, and I would highly recommend it to anyone (we had a family of four with two young kids). There was only one problem and it needs to be addressed. The hotel offers no laundry service, provides no place to clean clothes yourself, and there are no coin laundries near! We ended up cleaning our clothes by hand and hanging them on a makeshift clothesline in our room. They just to fix this issue and things would be perfect.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are below ground level (ie basement). Don't take them if you can avoid them.

Thank you for your feedback and review. I am delighted to read that you enjoyed our central location and team service. Unfortunately we do not offer a laundry service in Premier Inn, and hope that this does not deter you from staying with us in the future. Being located in the City area there is no coin-operated Laundromat in the nearby vicinity. I look forward to welcoming you back again during your next visit.

Being travellers from Australia and not familiar with hotels or locations in London, we were a little hesitant about what we'd find having booked the Premier Inn Blackfriars. I'm pleased to say the hotel exceeded our expectations in every way. The room was spacious and quiet, the location perfect - a short walk to the tube, the River Thames and St Paul's Cathedral, a variety of hotels and cafes nearby - and the buffet breakfast was amazing - poached eggs cooked to order and they kindly provided me with soy milk. Great value as well! We'll definitely stay here again when next visit London.

Thank you for choosing Premier Inn London Blackfriars Fleet Street. It is always a pleasure to read such wonderful comments from our guests. Our team here is focussed on providing a friendly yet professional service to all our guests. I will be sure to share your kind words with the team. Since our opening we have had guests telling us how much they like our location and that sometimes they find us fully booked, so we are adding another 52 bedrooms to the hotel to satisfy the demand we regularly have. The hotel will have these rooms ready for February 2014 and we will soon become a 310-bedroom hotel. Again, thank you for your feedback and support.

The hotel ist very silent and the breakfast is excellent, but we had a lot of negative experiences too: a very small room and a very complicated check-in procedure, because we were told, that we were not able to split the bill into two parts (one cash and one with credt card as me and my collegue had a twin room together).

Thank you for your feedback and review. I am delighted that you had an enjoyable stay with us and found our rooms and location suitable to your needs. I am concerned to hear that you found our 'Quick & Easy' check-in kiosks complicated to operate. Most guests prefer using them rather than queue up at Reception while our team serves other guests. However we also have our traditional Check-In desks and Reception team members ready to welcome you & assist with your check-in. Please email me at opsmgr.londonblackfriars@whitbread.com quoting your Booking Reference and contact details, and I will provide you the bill as per your requirement. We hope that we can welcome you back in the future and thank you for staying with us.

I always try to stay in a Premier Inn wherever I go as the service is second to none. Blackfriars did not disappoint. Down a quiet side road away from traffic noise. Room spotless, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast wonderful, with PROPER fresh ground coffee. Staff went out of their way to be friendly, quick and helpful. Premier Inn set the standard, even for more expensive hotels and they set the bar high.

I came here not expecting much. But really other London hotel could learn from this one. Check In was quick an easy. My room was a good size, much larger than many hotel rooms in London that I have stayed in and might I add paid much more for them as well.

Really the hotel does what it says on the tin, lacking a fridge in the room, but I will forgive this over the location which is perfect. Close to the business district, theatre town, shops. This hotel is a true gem. I will return.
