Princess Hotel
Ranked #36 of 579 London B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 January 2017

We stayed for 4 nights in a Private room (shared bathroom) at the Princess Hotel.

About the room: It was very clean, comfortable, with nice heating system, with a sink+mirror+hair dryer, and coffee and tea available in the room.

About the Shared Bathroom: it was very clean and it was available body soup+shampoo on the showers. It was a little tiny space, but it should not be a problem.

About the Infrastructure: It is a simple/budget hotel. It does not have elevator and it does not have much facilities.

About the location: it is located very close to the King's Cross St Pancras (and to the International St Pancras Train Station). It was perfect to me.

Pros:
- Price for a private room (cheaper than many hostels)
- Comfortable private room for a couple
- Location

Cons:
- No elevator

Room Tip: No elevators

Read many of the reviews online before making my reservation. I was looking for a room with 4 single beds with private bathroom. The Princess Hotel was the only one that I could find. It worked out to £35 per head which I thought was excellent value of money. The room was big, the beds were a little small for one of men, but then again he is a fairly large build. Impeccably clean and just the best location together with some really nice staff that go out of their way. One the better hotels in the area.

Brilliant location in London however that's where the good points end unfortunately. The ceilings and walls are extremely thin, you could hear conversations above and in the corridor and every step of the people above us was accompanied by a loud, drawn out creek. We stayed here to avoid driving 4 hours to an event the following day, however it was pointless because we had less sleep than we would have if we had stayed at home. Both our eyes were burning the next day due to no sleep and the drive home that evening was understandably a struggle. Cleanliness was not great, the shower and bathroom is shared and was littered with hair and water on the floor (or urine, could not tell).

Room Tip: Get a top floor room

Good and clean Hotel. Staff is great. Very good to location and overall very good Hotel. The only thing is if you are in room that face the street it can be a little loud. But I think that can be said about all Hotels. I recommend this Hotel and it feelt good to stay there.

Room Tip: Other side from the street is more quit.

Nice clean hotel in an amazing location. Staff were extremely friedly couldn't fault them however the noise levels ruined the stay as could not get to sleep as the walls were so thin we could hear the people above talking and constantly walking around all night, did ask to move rooms at around 2am as noise wouldn't stop but all other rooms were fully booked. Obviously you could expect the odd creek in any hotel but it was honestly ridicolous noise. I wouldn't expect to be able to hear other people's conversations word for word when in my own hotel room. I would Advise to get a top floor room.
