We booked a twin ensuite room for 5 nights and we found that the bathroom is really small and the water pressure is too low that it's difficult to shower. We informed the front desk but it's not being fixed during our stay for the first five nights and we had to use a separate bathroom which is down at... More

This hotel is near King's Cross station which is convenient and easy to find, after coming up from the station, look for HSBC and walk along the same street. Check-in was smooth staff also kindly informed us to indicate our breakfast timing the best thing about Princess hotel, it has to be the English breakfast, and is included so you... More

The cealing of the corridor was leaking water and no one cared about it. I did try to notice the door guy over the night but he came to check it out after about 20minutes. There were drunk people in the hotel and they were yelling, and knocking on my door all over the night. Even in this occasion, the... More

Booked this hotel because it is within our budget and is near King's Cross station which is convenient for our early morning train ride to Edinburgh and it was great.

The location of the hotel is perfect, in which near the King's Cross Station. The English breakfast is good but the service is poor. The room is quite small for two people and two big luggage. However the price and C/P value are reasonable in London.

I wanted an inexpensive basic single for several nights, and took a chance on the Princess based on Tripadvisor reviews. Delightful surprise. I've paid a lot more in London, and not been as satisfied. My lower level room was spotless, with a comfortable double bed, desk and chair, dresser and mirror, TV, radiator heat. The window faced an alley, with... More

I ended up staying here by accident after missing my train and for £50 a night, it was a bargain. I did think it looked pretty small and not very "hotel like" and wasn't expecting to wake up in the morning but the beds were comfy, rooms really clean and had free wifi, coffee and nice towels.
