Booked Premier Inn Hub at Dacre Street near St James’s for one night as I was attending a dinner in town.
Didn’t expect anything more than usual Premier Inn, but was really impressed and would recommend and will definitely use this as my go to place to stay in future!
Close to the tube station(2 minutes). Modern, very clean, well designed hotel with rooms which might be too small for some, but for one night was ideal.
It’s like a little pod or a cabin on a cruise ship with a small shower room and a bed. Nothing different about that, but so clean and modern with great touches of technology everywhere.
The bed was amazing, by Hypnos, who make beds for the Queen! TV at end of bed on the wall and a window(with a view of scaffolding on a high tower, but I wasn’t there to look out the window!).
The duvet was rolled with towels and the TV remote balanced on top on arrival, which was unexpected and emphasised the cleanliness and care taken to dress the room.
All lighting controls are on a panel at the top of the bed and there were several light settings, allowing bright, medium and a low light as well as a funky lilac! You could request to not have your room made up from the panel is sleeping late and also do not disturb at the push of a button.
Wifi was perfect and loaded immediately at no cost of course.
Superb wall map showing all the locations for tourists and travellers.
I checked in with a QR code in seconds on the terminals and was given my key card, which worked every time!
Staff were friendly, polite and helpful, offering coffee as I arrived!
In the lift, the mirrors have an interactive message which changes every ten seconds and a frame to take elevator selfies! Here’s me on my arrival back at 1.30am!
A bottle of water was in the room on arrival, complimentary of course!
Well done Premier Inn Hub for having really thought through the entire customer experience and the entire journey from booking to departure to feedback!
I highly recommend to anyone looking for a one night stay. I will definitely book again any time I need to be in London, even if I need to get to the other side of the city……..yes, it was that good!
How much did you pay Ken?………..that’s the best and most unexpected part…………£72.50.
Superb experience and great value!
I’ll be back!!
