Premier Inns at Earls Court/Victoria/Waterloo

So I have my apartments/hotels down to about 3 or 4 choices...

Anyone experienced at staying at one of the 3 Premier Inn locations listed above?

do they have room safes?
free in-room wifi?
free breakfast?

I have not stayed at that hotel. Does their web site not answer your specific questions?

Actually, I finally found the part of their site that lists this stuff.

Nothing about room safes, however, most travelers have said they lack them...

wifi is only free for 30 mins each day.

Breakfast is not free for adults. Very disappointing.

Mike, Premier Inns are a cheaper but reliable chain over here. They work to the model that they charge lower prices and charge for the extras that some people don't require eg wifi and breakfast.
I regularly stay with them for work and often choose them over the "posher" chains because whilst not luxury they are clean, comfortable and I don't like feeling that I am being ripped off.

Very few if any hotels over here have free in room wifi. You are lucky to get any for free and some chains charge extortionate amounts for it. How much wifi are you actually likely to need? If 30 mins isn't enough, wifi is widely available at coffee bars, pubs etc across London.

Similarly there are loads of places to get well priced tasty breakfasts probably of a better quality than that would be served at the Premier Inn. I can recommend pret a manger for a great 99p filter coffee. Their egg and bacon baguettes are also really tasty.

I've never looked for a room safe when I have stayed there but I'm not surprised they don't have one.

Also meant to say, the premier inn beds are very comfortable and Premier Inn Waterloo really is in a good location!

I stayed at the PI on Knaresborough Road (near Earls Court) in May 2013 when I found a room for the bargain price of 45 GBP per night. It is a budget chain. Rooms are clean and basic. I don't remember if the rooms have safes. Breakfast is not included, but there are plenty of places in the neighborhood that have better food (like the Pret that Emma recommended). I think you only get 30 minutes of free wifi.

We stayed at the Premier Inn at Earls Court - never looked for a room safe. Liked the hotel. Breakfast is extra. Very close to the tube station.

While you only get 30 minutes of Wi-Fi free, a whole 24 hours is only £3, if I remember correctly. I was very impressed with the comfort of the Premier Inn I stayed in, especially considering the price.

To add to Nancy's remarks , the 24 hour three pound fee covers two devices and if you are staying three days or more , take the weekly deal for ten pounds
