Premier Inn have really stepped up their game with this hotel. Formerly a classic yet dated old hotel in Leicester Square, Premier Inn have standardised its rooms to their usual levels and the overall result is a good hotel at an affordable price in the middle of Leicester Square: a win-win for them and for their customers.
This is not what you expect from a budget hotel chain. The properties in this postcode are usually extremely expensive, and of course, for those who know London, the area is well worth it. Being able to just step out of your room into Chinatown, the cinemas, theatres, Covent Garden and Soho is just a luxury, and this is Premier Inn Leicester Square's main selling point.
Of course, this hotel is slightly different to your usual Premier Inn in cheaper areas. The first thing you'll notice is of course that the price is considerably higher, top be expected, but compare with other hotels in the area and you'll see that in fact it's excellent value.
The second thing you'll notice if you are a Premier Inn customer is that space is at a premium and that your room is likely is likely to be smaller than the usual Premier Inn standard. Ours was relatively small, with a lower ceiling than normal and with only a shower rather than the usual bath. However, you can still expect the large, comfy double bed of every other Premier Inn. Also, the windows don't open but the aircon is relatively silent and we got a good nights sleep despite facing Leicester Square (and despite some drunk lunatic yelling for "Laura" at 4am in our corridor). Our room faced Leicester Square, the Odeon cinema, and Nelson's column and the London Eye. As far as urban views from hotel rooms go, this had to be one of the very best.
Being able to walk to London's main attractions is a luxury, and Premier Inn have democratised that luxury.
