“New Year's Eve”
Reviewed January 1, 2009

Booked Jan 2nd 2008 for the New Year's Eve celebration in London. Checkin was busy, but used the new self service kiosks which were easy to use. A very helpful staff member came by to make sure everything was OK with the check in process and explained the procedure for getting into the hotel after midnight.

The room was a bit basic (eg you dont get drawers) but very clean and comfortable and well worth the £110 rate for a central london location on NYE.

I didnt use the restaurant/bar but the there is a Costa Coffee on the entrance which was very welcome on New Year's Day morning.

We paid £244 for a family of 4 to stay 2 nights bed & breakfast. We were very impressed by this hotel which was literaly 2 min walk from tube station.
The bed was very comfortable. We booked a family room 267, there was no view but we really only wanted somewhere clean & comfortable to stay.
Drinks in the bar were very good value. We did not eat in restaraunt however we heard lots of people say their meals were very nice.
The rooms were very clean, spacious & decorated well.
The breakfasts were lovely & all staff in this area were very friendly & could not do enough for you.
We checked out of our room before the correct time (12) & was offered to leave our bags in a room provided by the hotel.
We would not hesitate to come back.

Took the wife and kids to london for the first time and booked here over the internet. i have to say that i wasn't expecting much (as we were working to a budget) but boy was i so wrong! From we arrived till we left the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Food top rate and cheap all you can eat for £7.95 and the kids eat free! i would say forget about the more expensive hotels this place has all you would want and being close to the underground you are never far from anywhere in London.

This hotel is excellent. I did think it was a bit expensive but considering how well placed it was etc I couldn't really complain! Was so clean, fresh and cosy. Drinks were ridiculously expensive though even for London i think. For some reason the hotel hadn't told my friend her card had been declined when she booked 5 months earlier. This was a bit of a problem as we then had to scrape money together that was for spending. Wished they had said it had been declined at time of booking as it would have been so much easier. We hardly spent any time in the hotel just because we were so busy on our 2 day trip of London. When we needed a taxi to go to the theatre we asked at the desk and they put a light on to tell taxis to come in and get us. This was great!

Overall a good experience!!!!!!

  • Liked — Rooms were excellent
  • Disliked — possibly the food.......I like more of a Scottish Breakfast, but when in London!

We just stayed at this property and can globally agree with the positive comments.

PRO:
- convenient location, very close to King s Crossand St Pancras
- plenty of underground connections available
- modern hotel
- comfortable room
- good breakfast buffet
- A/C was working properly
- bathroom fairly ample and very clean
- though much higher that a normal Premier Inn in the country, was still good value for London
- good to be able to leave luggage in a secure place after check-out


CON:
- we booked a family room, we obtain a normal room and a mattress on the floor for our son ...
- room is small for 3 people
- as in most hotels in London the staff is very young unexperienced and foreign - but here the staff was speaking understandable English ..., they have to do everything, e.g for the breakfast, seat the guests and clean the tables as well ... ensuring long queue in the morning of grumbling patrons
- room was pretty noisy the double glazing was good but not sufficient to ensure a quiet night
- cards to access rooms and lobby was not wroking well, had to go frequently to front desk ... to complain and have it changed

GLOBALLY POSITIVE

The Premier Inn almost invariably represents good value for money in a central London setting. I stayed here for three nights in late September 2008 at a cost of circa £110 a night. My room was compact, comfortable and well insulated against the street noise outside. The Premier's proximity to the tube at St Pancras (about 500 hundred metres away) also makes it (and London itself) highly accessible.

If I had one small quibble, it is the Premier Inn's tendency to instal Lux liquid soap containers above the bath. Yes, they can serve as soap, shampoo and body gel, all rolled into one. But there's something very proletarian about this scrimping attitude to toiletries. It would be so much better if they had a nice selection of small soap bars, shampoos and bath gels.

As one reviewer has already noted, the Premier breakfast is exceptionally good value and sets you up for the day. All you can eat of either Continental or English breakfast for the highly competitive rate of £8. I have yet to find a hotel in London which matches the Premier's price in this regard.

But the really special thing about the Premier is that it is only a stone's throw away from the newly renovated St Pancras International station. And that station is fast becoming a new London attraction. The architectural design of the station (with huge swathes of glass forming its roof) is a wonder to behold. And the giant statue of the two lovers embracing is fast assuming iconic status. Not to mention the movingly affectionate statue of Sir John Betjeman, clutching his hat in strong winds.

There are also some great restaurants in the new St Pancras Station. The St Pancras Grand (opposite the Champagne Bar) has won many rave reviews from the critics (though I did not sample its pleasures myself). But I dined a couple of times in Le Pain Quotidien. It has a great selection of freshly made soups, meat pies, steaks and other dishes (including an eclectic selection of wines and beers). All served in a wooded room resonant of a small French bistro (though adjacent to main thoroughfare which cuts through the station).

I'm really glad the Sir John Betjeman saved St Pancras for posterity. And the renovation of the station has breathed new life into the entire King's Cross Area. From a place of ill repute, it has now been transformed into one of London's gems. And, as I observed earlier, the Premier Inn is located in York Way, just about 500 metres away from the magnificent station at St Pancras.

We stayed here 3 nights, October 8th-11th, 2008. Cost is £115 for weekdays and £90 for weekends, including taxes. This hotel is a rare gem in London, it offers a new (by the look of it) hotel across the street from Kings Cross station. Kings Cross is a transportation hub with 6 London Underground lines going through it and any number of over ground trains to many places in north-east UK.

The staff here are very friendly, the hotel itself is about 6 storeys with elevators. It’s “cool” in design, with a large atrium where the lobby and check-in desk is. The rooms are by North American standard tight in size, however completely functional; the ensuite bathroom has a tub/shower in it. Our room had a huge king size bed with ample storage space below it for suitcases etc. There is a hanging closet with about 8-10 hangers in it, however, there is no other storage for clothes in the room, either hang them up or leave them in the suitcase! There was also a safe at the bottom of the closet however they are not functional at this time but expected to be in the near future. There is a desk for working hung on the wall with a business chair for writing or computer use. A warning about the room phone, you need some special prepaid Premier Inn calling card to use it and THERE IS NO PUBLIC PAYPHONE IN THE LOBBY! Use one of the ones across the road at the station.

The “full English breakfast” (additional £8 each, kids under 16 free) is amazing. It’s an all you want breakfast bar with bacon, eggs, sausages, baked beans, fruit, yogurt, cereals, toast etc. Well worth it.

Stay here with confidence.
