This is a typical Georgian town house hotel in a quiet street. We spent 3 nights there and we liked it. Our room was tiny (as many London hotel rooms are) but it was clean and looked recently renovated (I liked the decor) There is no A/C and I missed it, but a fan did it's job. The beds were... More

Walking distance to Underground transit and Hyde Park. Many tourist trinket shops nearby as well as restaurants, even a Starbucks! It's tucked away off the busy streets, so not a lot of street noise. But the rooms are SMALL! I reserved a twin room to share with my Dad, but we opted for an extra room as the beds were... More

Really nice location, near 2 underground stations, easy walk to Kensington Gardens, Notting Hill etc. Friendly staff. Room could be cleaner, gnarly stain on the bedspread when we walked in, and shocking mold in the toilet tank. If you're hoping to sleep while you're there, make sure you get a room away from the elevator. Not only will you hear... More

I went to London to do some fashion shopping. I like Bayswater area due to comfortable acces to the public transport and big parks nearby. It is lively part of London, full of small restaurants. Unfortunately "my" UMI hotel was closed so I choose Princess Square nearby. My room was small, but functional, the shower was maybe bigger than the... More

We 've spent 2 night in Princes Square in November and I am very happy that we didn't have to spend anymore! The receptionist is welcoming and smiling, but that is probably the only good thing about this place. We've not tried breakfast as the outrageous price we had to pay for what we got didn't include it, as it... More

The hotel offers very basic service, but the staff are very hospitable and helpful. We took a double room and usually beds come in king size and queen size. Here the bed is princess undersized. There is no air conditioner, so you should know that a fan is the maximum you'll get. The days were quite hot in London, so... More

This is a good hotel and you get what you pay for. If you are looking for something that is relatively cheap (for London) and with excellent connections to the underground and bus then stay here. It is situated in bayswater so lots of restaurants to choose from and some good shopping.

The Princes Square hotel is located on the North West outskirt of Kensington gardens. The neighborhood is very quiet. We stayed in early July and slept easily with the windows open. (room 307) Queensway and Baywater tube stations are easily reached in under 5 minutes, so traveling around London was easily achieved. The Baywater area has plenty of shops, stores... More

Needed a family room that sleeps four, ended up downstairs in a room below the front entrance and stairs. Very noisy with people walking and banging all night, staff not very helpful. Room was basic, beds OK. Bathroom basic with slanted roof over shower area so basically a bath. If you are looking for a quite night sleep avoid this... More
