I stayed here for 3 nights in early April. I examined 2 other Premier Inns in London as well. Both were half the price but twice the distance from town. So for a short stay, this hotel will save you a lot of time. For a longer stay, a bit of time on the subway every day will save you a lot of money.
This is the 5th Premier Inn I have stayed at and they are all pretty much the same. Rooms big enough for a family of 3 with no problems, 4 are a squeeze but possible. They provide you a kettle and some instant coffee and tea, a hairdryer, and not much else. They all have internet access to the rooms for a fee, this one had computers in the lobby with internet, for a fee, and all have a bar and a restaurant in the location.
Breakfasts cost 7.50 GBP per adult, kids are free. This is an all you can eat deal and if you are a big breakfast person, this is really worth it. Every day was good with a wide selection.
From this hotel there was a Starbucks and a Subway (sandwiches) right across the street along with several other places to eat nearby, including a small shop where can buy water and things like that.
The only reason this hotel is worth 100 GBP a night without breakfast is the location. You can walk to the London Eye in about 2 minutes. You can walk to Parliment or Westminster Abbey in less than 10. You can walk across the new pedestrian bridges and be over the river towards Trafalger Square in about 15 minutes. And Waterloo subway station is about 1 block away. We were able to pack a lot into every day without spending time traveling back and forth.
The fire alarm did go off one day at 0830. Made a lot of people mad. There are around 30 businesses in this building and the systems are all connected.
I would stay here again for a short visit. But it is too expensive to stay here for a long time, for what you get.
