The location is very convenient to many attractions and business districts. Only a 5-minute walk from the Underground station, but a bit tricky to find the first time. As is typical for Premier Inn, the check-in and check-out process are very quick and easy if everything is "standard", since they use self-check terminals like in an airport. That can be great or lousy, depending on whether someone is always ready and able to help with any hiccups. The room size was great with plenty of sensibly located power outlets, and I had no complaints about the furnishings other than the bed. It was horribly uncomfortable with springs constantly poking into my back, making for a very miserable couple of nights with little sleep. The breakfast was excellent and the price (extra) was quite fair by London hotel standards. My only other major complaint was the wireless, which costs extra for each day and is really lousy, especially since it will only connect to one device. Not one at a time (a phone and a PC, for example), but only one. If your phone automatically connects because you used it the day before, then you're out of luck for using your computer unless you want to pay an additional fee to connect it. That's inexcusable in this day and age. Free wireless should be a given, not a low-fare airline approach to bait and switch with a low room price and making you pay extra for things that don't cost the hotel much at all to provide. Though I stay in London very frequently, I'm unlikely to return to this hotel due to the beds and the wireless.
