“Great location, great hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Never stayed at a Premier Inn before, so wasn't sure what to expect. I can honestly say I have no negatives at all about this hotel, it was superb. Stayed for one night for daughter's 18th birthday, as she and her sister wanted to go clubbing in London for the first time. The location is fantastic. Everywhere we wanted to visit was within walking distance, including the tube station. After dropping our luggage at the hotel, the girls, armed with Oyster cards, did Harvey Nicks, Harrods, then Oxford Street. Mum & Dad walked to Covent Garden for lunch and a wander around. Every member of staff we met was really friendly and helpful, another special mention for the lovely Gloria, who suggested some cocktail bars and clubs for the girls to visit. Check in very easy. Our rooms were lovely, good sized comfy bed, tea and coffee facilities, flat screen telly with Freeview, plenty of hanging space, excellent bathroom with huge shower, plenty of fluffy towels, all spotlessly clean. Very secure, room key is required to get into the hotel, including the lift. We didn't sample the breakfast, but thought it very good value at £8.95. Last but not least, our rooms were on the 4th floor, and we didn't hear a thing during the night. Excellent soundproofing! Would definitely recommend and we will definitely return to this hotel. Well done Premier Inn!

This was easily the best Premier Inn I've stayed in.
702 was a small room, but that's typical for central London. What made it good was : location ( right where it's all happening ), quiet, Premier's excellent beds & all provided by outstanding staff. The hotel's good but the staff made it excellent. They're a small team clearly committed to their own hotel being successful & Oliver's approach to customers was typical of the team. I hope management realise it & don't mess it up with some new fangled initiative.
I will definately be returning when I need to come to central London.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the square - floors 6 upwards

Was dubious about staying in centre of town- but What everyone says is true- all you can hear in middle of night is nothing once Tube has closed (slight hum) staff are exceptional and I liked the calorie counts on the menu-food for thought. Great stay would do it again.

Booked this hotel, as we wanted somewhere close to the theatre, even though check in wasn't until 2pm the hotel happily took our luggage, went back at 2pm, so easy to check in, and room was clean large, we'd requested a family room, and quiet.
Lovely helpful staff.
Great hotel for shops and theatres, will be returning

Room Tip: Family room was at back of hotel, ( 712 ) so very quiet, double glazing helped

You know what you are getting with this chain and so no horrible surprises. Great room, super clean and nice staff. Not the cheapest PI in London but the top location more than makes up for it. Will stay here again when on business in central London.
