Premier Inns are my usual go-to budget hotel chain, but Hampton by Hilton has been winning me over recently with their classy decor, comfy beds, quality bedding and perfectly formed rooms. They appear to thought of everything right down to the handy laptop tray, plenty of plug sockets for charging phones and devices, an iron and ironing board, safety deposit box, great air conditioning and a proper salon-style hairdryer. There was also free wifi, and while it connected just fine to my main device, the phone was a bit challenging to connect so I gave up andused my own data service. It's a problem I've had in their London hotel too.
For a bargain advance rate of £58 per room per night I also got a complimentary breakfast buffet including a modest hot counter selection, decent juice & coffee and the option of toast, cereal, croissants, fruit, yoghurt and assorted muffins. All this in a pleasant breakfast room which turns into a bar in the evening. They even have workstations so you can enjoy refreshments while doing a spot of work on the laptop and even keep an eye on the 24 hour news channel at the same time.
Reception staff were friendly and professional and always happy to help. Rooms were reached by 2 lifts which were operated by room key - a nice security touch.
This hotel is in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter, five minute walk to St Pauls Square area (Jam House, pubs, restaurants), and about 20 minutes stroll into the heart of the city and the attractions of Centenary Square, The Mail Box, Chinese Quarter and Brindley Place. Highly recommended!
