“2 night stay Dec 2012”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Excellent location. Spotless rooms. Fast check in. The welcome at the check in was great. Really friendly woman called Carla. Didnt have food so cant comment. However, if you want a fairly decent breakfast, there is pub 5 minutes walk that sets you up for the day, at half the price of this hotels brekky. Directions: head to the main City rd/Old St round-about, cross the lights to the right, and walk down that road for 2 minutes, and you will see 2 pubs next each other on the left. Its the pub on the corner, think its a Wetherspoons.

Anyway, top hotel. Stay there.

We recently stayed at this great Premier Inn after an evening out in the City. Within easy walking distance of Liverpool Street Station, we were really pleased with the location, which was also right next to Old Street tube station. On arrival, we were helped to check in by a very friendly receptionist, and allocated a room on the eleventh floor. The view was amazing- from our window we could see The Shard and Canary Wharf- and when night fell and the city lights came on, the skyline looked incredible! Our room was immaculately clean and very spacious for the two of us. The bathroom was sparkling, with plenty of towels ( although these were quite small- bath sheets would have been nicer). and equipped with shower/hair wash so we actually hadn't needed to bring our own. There was a TV, the usual tea/coffee making facilities, plenty of hanging space and a hairdryer. The decor was very soothing, and the bed comfy, with a choice of soft or firm pillows depending on preference. We went downstairs for a coffee when we first got there, and the lounge area is really attractive and comfortable with plenty of seating areas. There is an extensive menu on offer if we had chosen to eat in their restaurant- £12.50 for two courses being an excellent price. In the morning, we did opt for the eat-as-much-as-you-like breakfast at just under £9 per person. There is so much to choose from, even the pickiest of customers would be satisfied. One slight warning- the restaurant was really busy when we arrived at about 9.45 so there can be long queues at the food counters, especially if people have ordered things that take extra preparation- an hour later it had calmed right down. Despite the hoardes of hungry customers, the staff were friendly and helpful under pressure-nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely stay here again,

I echo the statements of previous reviews - this place has a great location right by a very central tube, as the hotel is new, the bedroom was spotless. Comfy bed (not Kingsize though?!), good facilities, shower pressure not the best but temperature was fine. Staff members were 100% helpful, efficient and friendly - never had such good customer service in other hotels, was blown away! Brilliant value for money!

A very good price for this location in London.
Premier Inn quality is reassuringly predictable. Easy check in. Fairly large, clean bedroom, comfortable bed with choice of pillows and a good shower.
The Geffrye Museum is fairly close and well worth a visit.

Room Tip: 12th floor had good views

My wife and I spent three wonderful nights at the above Premier Inn. Finding it difficult to find I telephoned and the Duty manager came to meet us at the tube station; what excellent customer relations.
The staff at check in were efficient, polite and very welcoming with lovely smiles.
We ate in the restaurant and the food was of a high quality and hot. Our server,looked after us impeccably, giving us the right amount of space between courses, and showed a high degree of service and fantastic customer relationship skills. She never stopped smiling which we found lovely and very welcoming.
In the bar we were served efficiently and again with a high degree of professionalism.
We will definitely use this Premier Inn again.

Great location for us at Old Street Tube Station, 2 stops away from Kings Cross. Hotel is literally less than 5 minutes from station. Staff extremely friendly and welcoming on our arrival. Rooms, comfortable and clean. Excellent price for London. Definitely recommend!

we stopped here for two nights this month and must say we were very pleasantly surprised by the whole experience.
the automatic check-in was excellent and very quick.the rooms were as you would expect and the food , both breakfast & dinner were of a very good quality but the icing on the cake was the friendliness and help of each and every one of the staff.
nothing was too much trouble from the domestic staff through to the management.
if in london,stop here you will not be disappointed.
