Positive Reviews

A brilliant location...

The Premier Inn London Holborn is a great base for exploring the city. It's about a 15-minute walk to Covent Garden and about 20 minutes to Oxford Street. The Holborn Tube station is 2 minutes away, and tourists note you can buy tickets for the nearby hop on hop off bus from the front desk. There are plenty of restaurants, takeaway places, and bars nearby also yet most guests report a sound sleep, as the hotel itself is on a quieter street.

A great deal, especially for families!

London hotels can be pricey, but this one is generally considered very affordable for the location.  The family rooms are a particularly budget-friendly option for groups, with plenty of beds and a little additional space.

Exceptionally friendly, helpful staff

The front desk, housekeeping, and restaurant staff are widely described as friendly and hardworking. Parents often note that they are very kind and attentive to the kids, too. One of the ladies in the restaurant makes balloon animals!

Negative Reviews

A hot night in Holborn...

The lowest setting for the air conditioner is 19c, though some guests report being unable to lower the temperature below 21c or else find the unit unable to cool the room at all. The standard duvet is a bit heavy for some, but thinner quilts are available at the front desk.

No phone calls, please...

The rooms at the Premier Inn London Holborn do not have telephones, an annoyance for international travellers who have to venture down to the front desk to report a problem.

Pack light...

Most rooms offer some hanging space and a drawer for clothes storage, but not much more. Some families also find there is little room for luggage with two single beds put up in addition to the king size bed.
