“Lovely place”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Lovely hotel and good value for money.

Booked this hotel at short notice and by the price wasn't really expecting much but must say I was very surprised. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were clean and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was good and although the location is a bit out from the normal tourist haunts it is close to good transport links.

A good choice if you are on a budget but still want a decent hotel. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

I went to Princes Square Hotel for 4 nights on a long weekend in september with a friend.

Main reason for the trip was shopping, sightseeing and concert, and we did not want to use a lot of money on a hotel. We found Princess Sqare Hotel online and decided to try this hotel.

Hotel room:
Our expectations were low considering the price was so low, and we were therefore very pleasantly surprised by the hotel.
The room was very clean, and the bathroom was nice. I missed having a face towel and a toilet brush in the bathroom, but apart from that it was great.

Staff:
Staff was nice.

Wifi:
I missed Wifi in the room. I understand they offer wifi, but only in public areas for a fee.

Breakfast:
The breakfast was simple, but good. Breadproducts and croissant, cereal and juice. Assorted jams and cheese. They were constantly refilling the breakfast table so nothing got empty.

Transport:
Nearest Underground Station is about 5 min walk from the hotel. Paddington Trainstation is also quite close. Heathrow express train runs directly from Heathrow to Paddington.
The underground makes it easy to get around the city.

District:
The hotel itself is located in a quiet street, but a 2 minute walk and you are on a street with lots of restaurants, souvernirshops and other shops. You also have a shopping sentre close by.
Kensington park and Hyde park is also close by.

Summary:
Good value for the money, clean, nice staff, nice breakfast, central.

I'm actually so pleased by the hotel that I just booked the hotel again to stay there when I'm going back to London in December.

Why - surprisingly? Because I got used to the fact that most hotels in London are crappy, but nevertheless expensive. I've read lots of reviews before choosing this one, most of them were positive. But still I had doubts. My trip to London was right before and during the Olympics, so I didn't have much choice. Princes Sq. prices seemed decent, and location was good. So I took the risk ))
Double room was not too big, but considering this is London we're talking about - good enough. Furniture looked new. The hotel in general looked renovated. Clean bathroom. Comfortable bed. Big-size mirror in the room! Not too much space in the wardrobe for two, but we survived. Helpful staff.
Location is good. It's close to Bayswater, but keep in mind that District and Circle lines have more delays than other lines, especially in the morning. So it might be easier using the Central line instead - Queensway station is just extra 3 minutes walk.
The area is nice - lots of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants around. Very nice greek grocery just around the corner - fresh fruit and yoghurt - good substitute to hotel's breakfast.

The Location of the hotel was quite good, very close to everything. Parkng close to the hotel is quite expensive and Internet connection is at nine pounds a day. Room extremly small for a double and the area was quite noisy due to youth hostels near by, so be prepared to sleep quite late. Toiletries are very basic, just a soap and some used shampoo. Breakfast was too basic but at least fresh.

Stayed for four nights. Location was great. Very close to tube station, area felt safe. Room was clean and nice, but one problem was that our window opened onto a balcony that was shared with other rooms, thus we felt we had to close the window when we went to sleep and the room got quite stuffy. Noise was also a problem. Walls seemed very thin. Interior and exterior noise was a problem some nights. Breakfast was very basic but fine. The location really was great, overall the stay was fine.

Was here for 4 nights in a twin with a friend. We were at the front of the hotel with a balcony. Room was tight but well appointed. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom was fine nb. They dont provide any products. Hot water required a little working out. Hotel was refurbished not so long ago. Breakfast was fine, basic. You could pay £5 more for an english. Location was very good. 5 mins to bayswater tube. Right near kensington gardens.
