        • Family with children
          9.6

          We were sightseeing. The location was great. Right next to the Tower of London. Several great restaurants were close by. The staff were excellent and very helpful. I enjoyed the bar/coffee area being open at all hours. Room was clean and comfortable.

          My only complaint - and this is one I have with many hotels - why oh why do they think that mattresses as hard as bricks are comfortable? The bed was big - blankets great - but very uncomfortable. It was like sleeping on boards. I would appreciate a mattress pad, feather bed topper, anything, to make it more comfortable.

          Everuthing was very good, friendly service, good price, good location. If I go to loNDON again, I will use same hotel for sure. Thank You Premier Inn

          It was very clean and easy to access to many important places in London. When I asked to keep my laggage after checking out, the clerk kindly accepted my offer.

          The hotel room was very spacious and cool, which we found very good as it was very hot outside. Although it was situated in a very noisy part of London, there was no sound at all in the room and it was very comfortable.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          Everything about our first stay in a premier Inn was top class - We arrived quite tired after a long journey and plenty of walking around the sites across London. This was our children's first visit to the capital and they were not disappointed. We were greeted by a very friendly receptionist, our family room was very spacious and clean and we had a great nights sleep. In the morning the breakfast was 1st class with again extremely friendly and polite staff on hand - We found it to be an ideal location for seeing the city with a good location for the underground tube system- will be staying here again definately.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          The hotel was in a good location near a tube station and DLR station to get into the centre. Staff were pleasant and helpful, the rooms were a good size and had very comfortable beds and a good shower. Would definitely stay again.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Arrived at the Hotel at 1-0'clock.Able to book in straightaway,and not have to wait untill 2-0'clock.Very comfortable room. Even through it was right next to the underground trains, no noice.

          Had e mailed the Hotel weeks before our stay, to ask for a later check out,due to my son running in the London 10k race.Told at the time we could have the room up untill 1-00 instead of 12-00 at no extra cost.When mentioning this on checking in, the receptionist got quite shirty and said that there where other people that wanted this,and we might beable to have the room up untill 12-30.When she then checked out reservation she said that we could have it untill 1-00,but did not apologise for her attitute.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Great location, 5 mins from Tower and near Wetherspoons and a Tesco for supplies. Air con worked well. Good clean comfortable rooms fine for relaxing and quiet. No decent view or outside area but not really a problem for short breaks.

          Premier Inn beds always seem too hard and so aggravate backache. Price quite high for budget type hotel chain, would be better if breakfast included or cheaper.

          Location

          Room was too hot and did not have thermostat controls

        • Single
          7.8

          Staff was very helpful about storing my luggage after checkout. That is the main reason I stayed there and I was very satisfied.

          There wasn't anything that I didn't like about the place. It is not cheap but it is London , after all.

        • Single
          7.0

          This hotel is clean and comfortable. Location is also good, about five minutes walk from the Tower Hill station.

          The internet access is not free (3GBD, for a day), but internet connection is not stable. If you use internet access for business, I don't recommend this hotel.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          We liked the location, had excellent service and food, and were made very welcome by the staff.

          Paying London prices for drinks.

          10.0

          During our visit to London both my partner and myself were particularly pleased at how good the Premier inn experiece was. From the moment we arrived the staff were corteous polite and helpful, and the facilities excellent and extremely clean throughout the hotel. When visiting London again we will definately return. Many thanks to all the staff and management.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          We thought the hotel was very central, our room was large for London and the bed was really comfortable. Everything was very clean. Breakfast was good and the breakfast waiting service was excellent.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          Everything as always - this is my second time and probably not the last, nice staff, breakfast, clean. Excellent.

          Minor issues : Windows don´t open which doesn´t let a fresh breath of air come in. The water of bathroom has a kind of "oil" or invisble cream although usable - very weird, Paid internet too much expensive and not reliable - next time I´ll get a 3g cell phone connection.
