“Excellent weekend break venue”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 via mobile

My partner and I like the Premier Inn brand as they always meet or exceed our expectations. This hotel was perfect for our needs. The room was clean and quiet. In fact it was very quiet. As usual, we had two excellent nights' sleeps. The shower was a good size, with a seat. Very good to be able to sit while washing my hair.
The restaurant is small so was busy at breakfast time. However we both enjoy the buffet style breakfast and consider it to be good value for the cost of £8.95 each. The staff at breakfast were working very swiftly indeed. In fact we found all of the staff to be friendly and efficient. Drink prices in the bar are very reasonable for Central London. We will definitely book for here again.

We chose this hotel because of the fact it was close to Liverpool St station where we arrived. When arriving at Tower Hill Tube station it's a short walk to the hotel.
The reception staff were very friendly. Because we arrived very early the room wasn't ready, but we could leave our bags, got offered a map of the city and were told the room would be ready from 14.00 hrs onward. When we got back check in was swift.
The room was quite spacious, especially for London (been to Premier Inn in Hammersmith and their rooms are smaller), and clean. We had a double at the back of the hotel. It was very quiet to sleep. No sirens, people yelling, etc. Good beds, good night sleep.
Breakfast was fine. More than enough choice. Here staff again was very friendly and swift in getting you to a table and cleaning up.


We only had one set of towels in our double room. Was rectified by reception, but did have to ask 2 out of three days.No further negatives. Great stay!!

Room Tip: Room 317 was very quiet and spacious.

My first impression when entering the hotel was a feeling of coming to a cheap and bad hotel chain. I have realized it is purely subjectively based on the logo, colors and the bright light in the reception area. (Light as it would have been in a restaurant kitchen).
But they didn't fail on what is really counts as a hotel guest. Nice spacious rooms and wonderful beds. There are carpets on the floor though and I think that is kind of disgusting because of all the dirt hiding in it. The reception was very friendly and helpful. The location is a 20-30 minutes subway ride to central London (e.g. shopping area). In the neighborhood there is some nice restaurants by the bank of river Thames. Try "Cote" at St. Katherine Docks.
The breakfast at the hotel is really good and it is a bargain if you have children under 16. 2 children eats for free for 1 adult paying for the most expensive breakfast (8.9 £). And the staff is very friendly and helpful

Staff exceeding expectations making sure we got the best room available. They showed an interest in us as a couple and the reason for our stay. We were gifted with chocs, flowers and a card for our anniversary.

Made a last minute booking for an overnight stay, so was £127 for a twin room. That price could be at least halved if you can book early. That said, we were very pleased with our stay. Nice friendly greeting on checking in. Spotlessly clean room and bathroom as we always find in Premier Inn. Were really there just to sleep so didn't use restaurant or Costa Coffee at all. Best thing for us was the position, as we were using Tower Pier to board the Waverley Paddle Steamer for a few trips. Also near to the Tube at Tower Hill Station. Fitted the bill perfectly and would also add that we had a great sleep and had no noise issues at all, which we thought might be the case in London on a Friday night. No need for the "Good Night Guarantee" for us!
We will use this Premier Inn when next needing to stay in London.

Room Tip: At the end of a corridor seemed quiet. The trains to Fenchurch Street run past the rear of the hotel...

I stayed here for business in late September. The room was clean and well equipped. Although I only used it once, they have an excellent breakfast buffet. Their in-room wireless service is a good value and allows for up to three connections. If I have business in that part of London, I will stay there again.

For a hotel in central London this is fantastic value. We booked about a month in advance and paid only £68 for the room, breakfast was extra but this was expected. We had a family room that was very spacious and the cot provided for our son was lovely, it looked brand new. I did bring my own bedding for the cot but it was not needed as the hotels bedding was really good. I would definitely recommend this for anyone, but it is well placed for Tourists, The Tower of London is a five minute walk, with access the all tube lines nearby.
