But fear not, as a budget hotel chain has just been named as the best in the UK – and you may not have even heard of it.
The consumer experts at Which? analysed cleanliness, comfortable beds, and value for money to create the rankings and a winner has been crowned.
It turns out, the top spot was taken by Premier Inn Hub – with a 77% customer satisfaction rating.
These Hub hotels differ from typical Premier Inn rooms – with a slightly smaller and more modern offering.
Each standard space includes a touchscreen control panel to change the lighting and temperature, a pull-out desk, a 40-inch smart TV, high-powered monsoon shower, a double bed and hidden storage – with a bigger room option available as well.
But it’s clear the compact size hasn’t put customers off. In fact, they’re pretty impressed by the affordable price tag, too – with rooms starting from £42 per night.
Not to mention the fact Premier Inn Hub hotels can be found in central locations in London and Edinburgh, so guests won’t need to travel far either.
Speaking about the findings, Which? said: ‘The UK’s largest hotel chain has landed one of the top spots in our past 10 surveys. This year it was pipped to the post by its spin-off brand, Hub, which you’ll only find in London and Edinburgh.
‘Its spotless rooms are small – some don’t even have windows – but they’re in great locations, right in the city centre.
‘And they squeeze in everything you get in an ordinary Premier Inn, except a kettle.’
