A 20-room guesthouse run by a friendly “Britalian” family of Sicilian origin, the three-star Princess Hotel maintains a good budget-friendly standard that will satisfy bargain-hunting visitors to London.
Pros: Homey feel. Friendly staff. Great value.
Cons: Small rooms. No online booking. Breakfast room can get crowded (go early!).
Rooms at the Princess Hotel are pretty, with floral-patterned comforters, burgundy carpets and rich cherry wardrobes and bed units. While these rooms could never be accused of being over-designed, there are enough pleasing elements to render them a cut above most London hotels in their price range.
All rooms are equipped with a flat-screen television and free Wi-Fi. Light sleepers, note that even though Argyle Street is fairly quiet, windows are double-glazed for that extra measure of insulation.
The Princess Hotel offers rooms with both private and shared facilities. Private bathrooms are small and attractive, with black-and-white tiles. One shared bathroom sports a mint green bathtub—with matching toilet—that we hope never gets renovated out of existence. Each room is outfitted with a hair dryer.
The Aronica family has been managing the Princess Hotel since 1976, and they’re great at what they do. The hotel is clean and cozy, and the service is friendly. Wi-Fi is free throughout, and breakfast is included in the room rate.
Reserving at the Princess Hotel
As we point out above, the hotel does not offer online reservations. You will need to call the hotel directly to reserve a room (click the “more information” link below for the phone number).
Those looking for a hotel that can be booked online will find a variety of options in this guesthouse-laden area. One of our other favored London picks, the Alhambra Hotel, is located on the same street as the Princess Hotel, and we also love the simple and sweet Hotel Meridiana, which is not far away.

About the Princess Hotel neighborhood
While many Londoners will warn you to stay away from the streets around King’s Cross and St. Pancras stations, the area is in fact only seedy here and there. There are oodles of small (and affordable) B&Bs in the area, as well as upscale restaurants, and a real range of shops.
