Hotel Help for First Time Visit

We'll be in London for three days and looking for a moderate priced hotel near attractions. Any perspectives on the Citizen M London Bankside or the Premier Inn London Blackfriar? I've checked the reviews but looking for any additional perspectives.

If your budget will stretch, book the PI Blackfriars.

Thanks for the reply. Is this a good location to get to attractions?

Is the Premier Inn County Hall or Premier Inn Waterloo (Westminster Bridge) available during your visit? They would be my pick of the London Premier Inns. But Blackfiars would be fine as well.

I prefer the location of the PI Blackfriars, but a very great many visitors like the PIs that Tex has mentioned.

Yes, Blackfriars has good transport connections, by bus and by Underground. Heathrow airport to Blackfriars is a step free journey from start to finish on the Underground, with an easy cross platform change at Hammersmith. tfl.gov.uk/gettingaround/maps/buses/pdf/blac…

PI Blackfriars is fine - very convenient for the Tube & loads of buses run along Fleet Street to get around.

Just be aware, even I (a Brit used to our Hotels!) found the rooms a wee bit small there!
