“Greatest place ever !”

A hyper central location in the heart of London filled up with friendly people, a good athomsphere and super clean rooms. What can be better during a (business) trip to London?
For once in the large crowd of cost-cutting hotels - one that is outstanding!!!

I will definitely go there again.

Stayed here because we were going to see a band in Hoxton Square which is 5 mins walk away.
I know this area and, for those who don't, it's on the City borders, near Moorgate, Barbican, as well as the now up-and-coming Shorditch.
You may be interested to know that two of us got a black cab from St Pancras which cost £10, the tube fare (without an Oyster card) is £9.40.
Anyway, the hotel is just what you need: clean, tidy and comfortable. Good shower too. One minor gripe - I couldn't get Radio 4 on the TV, but I could live with that for one night.

You might also like to know that there's a bar and restaurant.
Recommended.

Room Tip: I was on the 10 floor, so there was no noise, but then I'll bet the lower ones are triple glazed...

Dear Dave,

Thank you very much for selecting Premier Inn London City (Old Street) for your recent stay in London. (And I hope along with our hotel, you have enjoyed the band that you came to see.)

I am pleased to know that you found our room clean, tidy and comfortable. I really appreciate your comment about the fare difference between black cab and tube fare from King Cross station to our hotel – many of our guests would find it useful when deciding to come to our hotel from King Cross Station. And thank you for bringing Radio 4’s signal to our attention, I have asked my maintenance team to investigate the channel in all rooms for improvements.


Thank you Dave once again for staying at our hotel and leaving your feedback for our team. We hope that you continue to use premier inns for your future stay, and we look forward for your next visit.

Kindest Regards,
Bhupesh Rawat

Everything I would expect from premier inn standards. Had a great stay, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and cool in this heat wave. The only slight downside to our stay was that breakfast was a bit of a bunfight. We were seated at a dirty table, cutlery had run out as well as coffee cups but all were rectified very quickly once pointed out.

There has been a rise in budget hotels in the last few years, but no-one seems to manage them better than Premier Inn. We've stayed in a few now, and there is always a consistently high standard of both accommodation and staff. Family rooms seem always to be quiet, clean and comfortable with two full length beds for both children, whilst staff are always pleasant and welcoming and go that extra mile. I really think you can rely on their good night guarantee. We booked Old Street as a cheaper option for a night between a trip to the Proms and a trip to the British Museum. We had originally looked at Kensington etc hotels, but they were fully booked (probably because of the Hyde Park Stones concert). We were a bit dubious about coming so far towards the City, particularly when we discovered the Northern line was off. But actually Old Street has many great bus routes running through it - direct link to Marylebone, direct link to Bloomsbury and the West End - and it felt safe and secure even to take the children back to at night. And my daughters were thrilled to see the incredible view East from our 9th floor window at night. Soft sheets, comfy bed, great and quiet air con (we had temperatures of 30 degrees in London that weekend, and the room was absolute bliss all through the night). Thanks again Premier Inn.

Were staying in this hotel for 5 nights. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff very friendly and helpful. We had our room on the 4th floor with a view to the passing streets. The noise from the street was disturbing, especially the noise of passing police/ambulance vehicles. The hotel has a tube station just some 200 meters away which was brilliant. Breakfast was good. Kids missed the hot chocolate though. The free wi-fi is only for 30 minutes per day which was not enough for us so I bought the 24 hrs wi-fi. Then noticed that it could only be used by two devices. Wish they have a free limitless wi-fi next time we come. Overall, we had a very pleasant stay and can recommend this hotel to other visitors as well.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for staying with Premier Inn London City (Old Street) for your recent family trip to London.

I am really pleased to know that you found our rooms clean and comfortable, and that you found our staff friendly and helpful. Please accept our sincere apology for the sound of the passing police/ambulance vehicles - this is something that is out of our control to manage, - however, we can provide you rooms on higher floors to reduce and possibly eliminate the impact of this on your future stays.

Thank you once again for giving us your feedback, and recommending our hotel to other guests. We look forward to see you soon.

Stayed here as it was one of the cheapest hotels in the centre of town with a decent reputation. I did enjoy my stay but I'm not sure I can totally agree with everyone giving it 5*! The staff were helpful and enthusiastic but I have to say that the quality of the food wasn't exactly what I expected. Breakfast was great but the evening menu isn't brilliant.

The worst thing about our stay wasn't exactly a hotel fault. We asked for taxi at reception from the hotel at 7. We were told there would be a two minute wait. This turned into a ten minute wait which turned into a twenty minute wait. The taxi eventually turned up at 7:25. This wouldn't have been an issue usually but we had to be at the theatre for 7:30. Apparently turning up late for the theatre is not the thing to do... We received a few snidely comments. Perhaps the hotel should use a different taxi firm, because it really ruined our stay.

Having said this, don't be put off, the hotel is good, the rooms are clean (nothing special) and the staff are kind. Use if your not looking for something really special and just need a base while you look around London
