Premier Inn Leeds City Centre Review
Like other Premier Inns, there was a bank of self-check-in terminals from which to choose. However, helpful humans were there to lend a hand if needed.
What is the check-in time at Premier Inn Leeds City Centre (Whitehall Rd)?
The earliest check-in time is 2 pm. Check-out is by 12 noon on your departure date.
My room was comfortable and functional, if a little tired.
Decorated in tasteful grey and burgundy tones, it had excellent lighting throughout with a combination of downlighters and lamps.
Storage space was limited but perfectly adequate for a one-night stay. There was an open space for hanging clothes if needed.
The Hypnos king-sized bed was very comfortable with decent linen and plump pillows.
There was a comfortable armchair next to the bed and a wall-mounted television opposite.
A kettle with limited supplies for making hot drinks – two sachets of instant coffee, two Twining’s tea bags, UHT milk and sugar/sweetener – was provided.
Although there were no USB charging points, power points were plentiful throughout the room. Unusually, there was no in-room safe, fridge, or iron and ironing board in the room.
Facing the entrance to the bathroom was a small vanity unit that housed a powerful hairdryer. The bathroom was clean and functional with a powerful shower, a large mirror and good lighting.

The Bottom Line: Is the Premier Inn a Good Cheap Hotel in Leeds?
I’ve made no secret that I have a weakness for a good Premier Inn hotel. In my experience, the chain has achieved the right balance between comfort and affordability.
Premier Inn Leeds City Centre is keenly priced and in a convenient location, particularly if you are arriving in the city by train. The room had no frills but was very quiet and comfortable; perfect for an overnight stay.
