Good for a one night stay

I only wanted a clean and inexpensive room to spend the night so I could solve some personal matters in London.

As you come in, the stairs are a bit scary and not so clean. The "hotel" doesn't have a lift, but a friendly "receptionist" helps all guests with their luggages. The room is tiny, but good enough for just one night. Breakfast is across the road and not so great.

No lift, fifth floor room!

Although being made aware of refurbishment work at the time of booking and the need to check in at an adjacent property, I was disappointed to discover upon arrival that there was no lift and access to my fifth floor room was via a very narrow staircase.

I would doubt if the staircase, which was the sole guest access to all five floors of accommodation, would have been sufficient to permit a safe evacuation of the building in the event of a fire.

Good for the price, trying to drag itself up in the world

Have stayed here a few years back and now its had a refurb.

Or rather having as its not yet finished but there was no real signs of works and no noise etc. Small room but clean and modern. Yet again its one of those check in at another hotel and walk back again places which it would be really good to flag up before and apart from the room being like an OVEN on arrival, luckily the windows worked and there was a fan. I would stay again but not for any more and if recommending to colleagues I'd make sure they knew the downsides.

Good Value

When I turned up at the hotel I didnt know what to expect however after speaking with the porter and checking in I felt more relaxed.

When getting to my room I found it clean and well set out. Its not clear on the checking in process but the porter explains everything. Dont read a book by its cover....Very pleasant stay and value for money.

Prince William Hotel

This place is a gem.

Take no notice of the fact that check in and breakfast is over the road; there is a traffic light controlled junction. We were in a top floor bedroom which stretched the muscles a little but the lift will sort this on completion. The beds were new and very comfortable, facilities great. The only reservation is that whilst there is a monster double shower, the WC is fixed quite close to the brand new basin and so (for the person with a fuller figure) once in place moving is a planned exercise. I will use again as blows Travelodge out of the water. I forgot to mention the curry house within 50 feet of the hotel as well!

Excellent value

Excellent valve for a one night stay.

Clearly some renovations were going on which I think we should have been made aware of before booking, but it didn't make too much of a difference to us.

Prince William Hotel

hotel looks closed down from the outside, however we were pleasantly impressed by the room.

It was modern and spotless. You might have to check in across the road at another hotel, where you also eat your breakfast. Breakfast is very basic.

Value no frills hotel, in a good central location

For a value "no frills" hotel, it is located in a good area for using the tubes.

We found travelling late at night using busses back to the hotel a pain though. Hotel itself was undergoing building works and had no reception or restaurant but check in was at a hotel over the road along with breakfast, which I never made it to before it finished so can't comment. The staff we met and bombarded with questions were all very helpful, approachable and friendly. The rooms are being regenerated I believe and we had a small one on the top floor. They have design faults galore though, for example lights on an occupancy sensor in the bathroom located behind a bulk head. So expect to shower in the dark and if you use a hair dryer or straighteners expect to make trips between the power sockets in the room to the mirrors found only in the bathroom. My biggest pice of advice though is that anyone who has walking difficulties or isnt fighting fit request a room as low down the building as possible as the stairs are relentless and there is no lift.
