We were heading to London for a night out for the hubby’s birthday. When adventuring into the city we tend to stay at Hilton’s or Crowne Plazas etc. due to collecting points, but when looking there was nothing in the area. We were trying to find something central to the restaurant we had booked for dinner and this little gem popped up.
The hub by premier inn a new brand of the hotel, which offers more compact rooms, in bigger cities and AMAZING prices.
The hotel was in the heart of Fitzrovia, a 10 minute walk from Oxford Street, 15 minutes from So Surrounded by places to eat and drink, it was exactly where we wanted to be, right in the hustle and bustle of it all, and at £68 it had to be booked.
The hotel was sharp, ultra-modern and very clean. Literally a table for the reception desk and for the super tech’s there were self-assist booking machines.
Behind the reception area was a small lounge area serving continental breakfast, as well as a bar at the end, for those who fancy a drink before venturing into the big smoke
There were 2 types of room the standard or the ‘bigger‘, we had the ‘bigger‘ which was spacious enough and had a really good sized bed and good sized bathroom considering it was a compact room.
Although the room did not have a window to the outside world it did not feel too enclosed and was in fact quite airy.
Overall it was a really pleasant experience and we will definitely be recommending and booking for future adventures.
Although we did not eat at the hotel it offers continental breakfast and you can have rates with this included (but to be honest you are surrounded by so many places to eat that if you have the time it would be worthwhile to pop to one of them)
Tea and coffee is not provided in the room but is available 24hrs in the lounge area.
Oh and don’t forget the bar for a cheeky vino before you head out out!!
Wheelchair Access – 5 out of 5
There is no car park at this hotel, but if you are driving in there is a NCP which is a 10 minute walk away and only £20 for 24hrs, bargain!! Alternatively get the train/bus just as easy and you do not have to deal with the London traffic.
The hotel is fully accessible with smooth carpeted walkways (it’s the good carpet to push on don’t worry).
The reception is low so you can easily be seen and there are lifts off reception to the rooms.
For the accessible room you have to book the bigger room but it is spacious enough with a good sized bed, with pull cords for assistance if needed.
The bathroom is a wet room and has pull down shower chair with bars all around the shower.
The toilet is a little high (I was dangling off!) but there were bars to either side, one being a pull down so easy access to transfer.
Access all around the hotel eas excellent and to enter/leave the hotel there is an accessible lift to get to and from the front door.
It really was one of the most accessible hotels and rooms I have stayed in (and I have stayed in a number).
I have now been back to this hotel a couple of times and could not recommend it highly enohgh, a great position for a great price, with fantastic accessibility.
