    Magnificent hotel, wonderful and helpful staff, I love the Principal”
    I was staying in another hotel during my first 5 days in London, then was off to York for 2N before returning to London for my last 3N, where I was booked at the Principal. I was unsure where best to store a big luggage bag prior to my travel to York as the other hotel's policy did not allow overnight storage . I called up the Principal to get their suggestion and an extremely helpful representative called Hamza offered me to store my luggage there instead, even though I had not checked in. What a big relief that was to me, the various external paid options all came with logistical challenges. When i arrived at the hotel, everyone at the Principal from the doorman to concierge was so professional and helpful that I felt very assured that the luggage would be safe. I enjoyed my stay at the Principal very much. The hotel was magnificent and grand, the room with the vintage decor was superb. There was even a tuck box filled with snacks for the guest! Will def return for a longer stay!

    The room is spacious for London. It's recently refurbished, so everything is really nice and new. The staff is super friendly. (Too friendly for a person who doesn't like small talk like me ... but hey! it's not their fault.)

    Perfect location and beautifully renovated hotel with helpful staff . It’s a shame, though that there isn’t any slope for heavy luggage or wheelchairs at the entrance.

    מלון מצויין, מפואר, מיקום מעולה”
    המלון בעל חדרים נקיים, מיטה נוחה, נשנושים קטנים בחינם. הצוות יצא מגדרו לעזור , אדיב מאוד. נמצא כ-100 מטרים מתחנת רכבת תחתית שעובר בה אחד משני הקווים היותר מרכזיים(פיקדילי, השני-סנטרל) ותחנת אוטובוס. באיזור המלון יש סופר, שני סניפים של פרט א מנג'ר(טוב לארוחות בוקר) והמון ברים ואפילו קזינו. נמצא כ-5 דקות הליכה מהמוזיאון הבריטי, האטרקציה שהכי הרשימה אותי בטיול. לסיכום-מלון מדהים ודי בטוח שאחזור אליו שוב אם יתאפשר.
