“Totally affordable find for London”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Booked through Priceline (retail site) for $133.50 USD including tax. That is a steal for summer season in London and considering our weaker dollar. Breakfast included and all in a great location.
Adjoining Eastside Restaurant was a great value as well for a pint or beer.

Found beds to be uncomfortable and bathroom floor should have been cleaned better.

Staff was very accommodating when I asked for one of the rooms as a twin.

My daughter an I stayed here for two nights to visit museums and a theatre trip. The accommodation is quite excellent. We had a twin room, with ensuite shower, tea/coffee making facillities. It was spotlessly clean with comfortable beds. A very safe and secure building, friendly staff. fantastic value with breakfast included ( a short walk from the accommodation). No TV though, which would have been nice. However, I really cannot find fault with our stay.
Checkout time is 10.00 am, and they will store your luggage until later in the day if you wish to do more sightseeing. We used the Eastside bar & restaurant one evening .which served good food and reasonably priced drinks ( a bit below pub prices).
The accommodation is available to the public from June to September each year. The location is fantastic,within walking distance of the museums, kensington Palace, Royal Albert hall, Harrods,Hyde park etc. ( It's worth printing off a walking map from the internet, we did).
I would highly recommend Princes gardens, and would definately stay again. Why pay high hotel prices when you can stay here for a fraction of the cost.

This is a really fantastic option in London. The university residences are well maintained and safe. Staff are on site 24 hours a day and they're very efficient and helpful.

Location: Ideally located on a quiet square near tube, parks, museums and excellent dining options. It really doesn't get better than this spot in London.
Check in: Very organized and efficient. They are quite strict about check in and out times, but I suspect that's what allows them to serve large groups in a quick and organized manner.
Room: In the Selkirk halls, I was given a room on the 5th floor. It was immaculately clean, well appointed with plenty of outlets, light and air circulation. Linens were clean, no mildew in the bathroom, shiny taps, very well maintained overall. Good water pressure and temperature. The room and building were both secure.
Amenities: There is a fantastic gym across the square which you can access for GBP5 per day. It has cardio and weights, pool, climbing wall, classes and changing facilities. Great bonus. The breakfast is in another building on campus which is a 5-10 minute walk. Staff there are a little gruff but food is good and the buffet is more than adequate. There is a laundry room with washers, dryers and ironing boards in the basement.

Overall, I highly recommend Prince's Gardens. It's excellent value for money and I appreciate the chance to support a university that does great work in London and employs some hardworking students.
