“A great find”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

It's not often you'll find a hotel on London you can't fault in anyway at all - but this is it! Room really pleasant, quiet, comfortable bed, good temperature, bathroom pristine (looked like it had never been used!), decent facilities, helpful staff and a good location, all at a reasonable price. I was here with work for a conference and would not hesitate to book this hotel again, it's a real gem.

Stayed June 2014, traveled on business

It is the 2nd time I use this hotel. Located in a quiet area, but a little too close to the rail lines. The hotel is neat and clean, with a nice bar on the 1st floor. There is a direct bus to Covent Garden, only 2-3 minutes walking distance from the hotel. Distance to metro is about 8 minutes. Would recommend this hotel because of price and distance to the nearest attractions.

Stayed here for a night with my other half as we were going to a wedding. We were on the 5th floor and our room was absolutely huge. During the night, there was no noise from other guests, which was suprising for a saturday night. The reception staff were polite and curtious. Definitely would stay here againif we go to london! The only downside is the air con didn't quite compete with the heat, but given all the other pluses, it didn't really matter.

Second time staying in a Premier Inn but first time in this one (stayed in the excellent St Mary at Hill one just up the road last time.)

While this is essentially a budget hotel (though in London budget hotels are still expensive!) Premier Inn offers a really great experience. Check in is easy and fast, staff are very friendly and professional and really seem to enjoy their job.

The room was clean and spacious enough, with basic facilities including kettle and hair dryer and safe and the bathroom was nice with a spacious shower cubicle. Bed is really comfortable too with plenty of pillows.

Breakfast is absolutely brilliant with a wide choice of foods and the staff at the restaurant were very friendly and courteous and it's nice that everyone from the reception staff, handyman and chef says 'good morning' to you.

Hotel Is in great location for Tower Gateway DLR and Tower Hill tube and as well as tower bridge and the Tower of London and the City.

Another excellent experience with Premier Inn, and nice to see the consistency in service across the chain.

Room Tip: Back of hotel might be quieter but not a busy road anyway.
