“Good hotel, excellent location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2013 via mobile

Everything you would expect from a Premier Inn but in possibly the best location in London for night life and entertainment. Staff were very nice. Hotel in excellent condition as it is very new. Plenty of choice nearby for breakfast if you don't fancy he hotels own offering.
There is a nightclub in the same building but to be fair we stayed there on a busy night over the Christmasnperiod and didn't hear a thing, don't be put off by this at all.

Stayed December 2012, travelled as a couple

Decided to try the new premier in Leicester Square as it was half the price of our usual hotel and we were not disappointed. Whilst the rooms are by no means large they are quite a good size for London where every inch is accounted for! We were there for two nights and slept well both nights. My only minor complaint would be that as there is no real reception the only desk covers paying and seating for breakfast (a seemingly unnecessarily lengthy proceedure) as well as checking people in and out. Otherwise I would have given an excellent rating. As long as prices remain good I will check them out first.

what you wont be told about this hotel is there is a bar come nightclub in front of the Hotelwhich runs under the whole of the second floor and to the side of the hotel. I was booked to stay for 2 nights i booked out after one night. the noise was horrendous and the food in the resturant was mediocre at best. The famous Premier Inn breakfast was luke warm, bacon cooked on one side only, not enough there to feed everybody in the resturant that morning. Sorry I have stopped in Premier Inns all over the country, one or two have been a bit bad, but this takes the biscuit, you pay grossly inflated prices to stay here and cant even get a good nights sleep when you are here. Very disappointed. Check in was fast and easy and the security on the buidling was excellent 10/10.

Stayed in Premier Inn for three nights. Room was clean and big enough for three of us. Window view to next buildings brick wall. Bathroom quite large. Our bathroom had sticky floor so not sure if bathroom was so clean as it seemed. Tv easy to watch from beds. Breakfast was good.

Hotels location is great(!). We walked to British Museum and London eye. Public transportation connections are very good. Take Heritage route 15 to Tower :) For kids there is M&M store almost next to hotel.

Stayed in two family rooms for the weekend. Check-in was quick and easy, the man on the desk was very friendly and offered my daughter a free dessert as it was her birthday. The rooms were very clean and had a great flat screen tv and coffee/tea making facilities. My daughter wanted an extra duvet and even though it was 11 o'clock the staff couldn't have been more helpful and went and got her one without complaint. I was worried that it would be noisy at night in such a central location but you can't hear anything from outside. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice from cereals, pastries, fruits, yoghurts to a cooked buffet breakfast with other items such as poached eggs available to order. The breakfast worked out to be very good value as children under 16 eat for free. Overall it was a great stay and a fabulous location.

This hotels reviews the 4-stars but just. The thing is that in any other city it would impossible to sell these rooms for €200,-+. They look a bit like the rooms in the German roadside hotels. However, in London, the price is justified due to the extreme high prices of hotels.

That said, the rooms are clean and the beds are really good. Also, the rooms are very quiet. Most important selling point for the hotel however is it's location. You cannot get it any better. Sure, the entrance is in a dark streek between Leicester Square and Chinatown, but you are near everything. Very good indeed.

Downsides? The reception is on floor 2. This means you need the elevator to get outside. With 2 elevators, the waiting times are long. The restaurant looks really Ikea like, no charm whatsoever. My wake-up call was 25 minutes late (!) which really sucks.

But, for this price on this location, you can't get it any better I guess.
