“Great location, no vehicle access”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

This is a very good quality budget hotel. My biggest problem was that the hotel is in a pedestrianized area, so my minicab couldn't bring me directly to the hotel. I ended up having to drag my wheeled suitcase over 2 blocks of cobblestoned streets, not 100% sure of where I was going since I couldn't see the hotel from where I was left off.

It turns out there was a closer drop point (1 block away, by M&M World) which would have been a shorter walk, with flatter paving stones. (I've let the minicab company know...)

But the hotel was everything I wanted... very well-located, literally in the heart of Leicester Square, a block from Chinatown, a short walk from Soho. The rooms were tiny, which I knew from other reviews, but everything was well-fitted, clean and comfortable.

The staff is young and enthusiastic. The first morning, I slept in quite late (jet lag), but the housekeeping staff were very accommodating and never disturbed me. In fact, I very seldom heard staff or even other guests.

Great friendly reception staff, lovely bedroom which was really clean and tidy and tasty breakfast!
We were rudely woken at 4.45 am though by brilliant sunshine as the solitary curtain was too short and narrow for the window. When we complained at check out the staff member on at the time just wrote our complaint down on a scrap piece of paper!!!

We are a family of 2 adults as an 8 yo boy, who visited London towards the end of May 2014, and booked this hotel through their website. The main criteria was the central location. The hotel really is centrally located, with theatres, cinema halls, restaurants at a walking distance. Trafalgar square was a 3 minutes walk, and Piccadilly was around 8-10 minutes. The room was decently sized, clean and overlooked Leicester square. A great place to easily return to after a late night party. We missed an economical laundry service though..Overall a good stay and recommended for those who want to discover central London without stretching too much.

The premier inn has a perfect location enabling you to reach many attractions by foot and the others easily by the nearby underground which includes two central lines. The hotel has just been refurbished and is spotless. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is very nice with baking made on spot , fresh eggs and bacon and descent coffee (although vegetables and cheese are missing). Overall a very good value for money.

Stayed here last night as I came to London for a business awards night. The hotel is just around the corner from the Leicester Sq subway station and situated in the heart of Leicester Sq. The hotel is very central to all areas of london with oxford and regent street a short distance away. The staff here were excellent and were extremely helpful especially when we were looking to print return boarding passes. The place has all the usual premier inn amenities including a 24 hour bar. Room was clean and tidy and had an excellent air con unit. Would recommend this hotel to business, families and couples as it is easily accessed, relaxed and smoothly run. The staff deserve special notice as they were excellent. Will be back here

Stayed here at this fabulously-located hotel for a weekend theatre-trip to London & woweeee, what a find!! Tucked away up a small side-street off Leicester Square, it's a gem in the Premier Inn crown, welcoming helpful staff, immaculately clean rooms, comfy bed, inviting breakfasts, also bar-meals menu which sounded delicious. Fantastic views of Leicester Square, yet no noise at all from the Casino Bar directly underneath due to double-glazing soundproof windows - very efficient with adjustable air-conditioning ; which was fine in early May but I wonder what it would be like in August!?! A tad claustrophobic for me, but still an excellent stay with excellent prices; & would most definitely give this place 11/ 10!!

Room Tip: If you want a good view, ask for a room on the 3rd floor as the higher ones are almost above the tre...
