London Premier Inn Questions

Hello!
My daughter and I will be traveling to London for a few days in July 2016. I've searched and searched for affordable accommodations, and if I pre-book at the Premier Inn, our price per night prices beats almost anything else I can find. The affordable choices we have are Premier St. Pancras, London Tower Bridge, London City Old Street, London Southward Tate Modern, and hub Tower Bridge. Has anyone stayed at any of these? The two of us are traveling alone, so safety and convenience are priorities. Any thoughts?
Thanks!
Becky

The St Pancras location , is the most conveniently located , Tower Bridge , least so . The Premiers are always clean and reliable , I have used them all over the UK in recent years . The St Pancras location is brand new , they were building it when I was last in London in the Autumn of 2014 . St Pancras is also just across from the British Library , and several tube stops

I regularly stay at PI's Hub offer in both Tower Hill and St Martin's Lane. They are very good for the price and brand new. St Martin's Lane is very central but actually Tower Hill is no great distance, 20 minutes into Embankment by tube and it's close to the waterbus at The Tower. Next week I am back at the Tower Hill Hub. Rooms are not big but it's London and where else am I going to pay £45 for a Sunday night in a decent hotel?

Safety is not a major issue in London as you cannot buy semi-automatics in UK grocery stores.

And if you're planning on zipping over to Paris on the Eurostar after your London visit then St Pancras is the location to be!

We stayed at the St.Pancras Premier Inn the night before we took the Eurostar to Paris too and it was a great choice. Walked right over to the station, through security and we were off to Paris easily. The area is busy,busy but we asked for and got a quiet room.

I'll add my vote for Premier Inn St. Pancras. Nothing special, but handy location and good price.

Don't be too concerned with street noise at St Pancras - the new hotels that Premier builds in city locations have permanently closed windows made of doubled panes of thick safety glass . The central air conditioning works like a charm , and you won't hear a thing

The Southwark location is good for the attractions in the area (Globe, Borough Market, Tate Modern) but poor for public transport access to the rest of the city.

Have a look at www.travelodge.co.uk for bargain rooms as well as PI. We've used both with great success. We've signed up on both websites to get emails regarding special room sales. I'd go with the St. Pancras PI with it's ease of transportation getting around the city. Both chains offer comfy, clean, but smallish rooms with ensuite shower and toilet and it seems as though TL has more bargain sales. We stayed at St. Martin's PI last fall and have usually stayed at TL, usually at Marleybone, which is a few steps from the Marleybone rail and tube station, close to Regents Park.
