Pleasant Stay/Good Value/Convenient Location
My daughter and I stayed at the Princess Hotel in Dec 2019. I selected it because I had planned to take the Chunnel to Paris and it was close to St Pancras( and the Tube for general travel). I selected an economic room with shared bath on the top floor. This was fine for us with an interesting view of the street and small garden across the street. My daughter was excited to see the rooftops, chimneys and, unbelievably, a fox! There is no lift so one must take one's bags up, so be prepared for that, The room was small but functional and clean. The bed was comfortable and the room was well-heated. The bathroom was fine. On the top floor there is a shower room with a good-sized shower but no place to change and a bathroom/shower which was fine but the shower itself is smallish but worked well for us. The staff kept it clean and we never had to wait for it. There is a very spacious shared bathroom/shower on the landing between the ground floor and the first floor, but we opted not to use it. The front desk was staffed 24/7 by very helpful staff. The neighborhood felt safe for 2 women traveling together and was walkable to the British Library( 3 blocks) and the British Museum( 15-20 min walk). There is no breakfast provided and no option for one but there are plenty of coffee shops near the station. We would stay at Princess Hotel again.
