London skyline views. Tate Britain. The iconic SIS Building. At The Prince, you're just a few streets away from the majestic Thames. Inside the beautiful exposed-brick exterior, your thoughtfully designed space has cable television. Want to be in the city's favorite pubs and clubs? Vauxhall has got you covered. Don't forget to grab a Pimm's cup or two at the bar downstairs. Need something more romantic? We recommend a stroll along the river or a picnic in Kennington Park. Or, if you're eager to indulge in culinary delights, try the oysters at Darby's and thank us later. And with the Underground minutes away, it's easy to tick off any other items on your bucket list. The city is yours for the taking at The Prince. Please note, there is no elevator.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing stay! The rooms were spacious, clean and well-maintained. The beds were very comfortable and the amenities were great. The location was perfect - close to the city centre and attractions. The hotel had great facilities and was very convenient. The hotel was beautiful and the decor was modern and stylish. We had a great stay and would definitely stay here again.

Great location on the river. Just a 20 minute walk to Big Ben. Westminster abbey etc. not far from Lambeth bridge. Tesco express nearby. Plenty of bars and pubs nearby also. And a couple of takeaway options down lambeth walk - street directly opposite off black Prince road for some nearby options. Great spot.

Room Tip: There is no fridge. That’s my only knock about the property. But get some ice and a small bag...

Seems a bit out of the way but is really easy to reach on foot from central London. Tube station close by with good connections. Good area for restaurants. Rooms on the small size but clean and comfortable. The pub on the ground floor was a bit noisy one night but they close at 11.00pm. No staff onsite. No reception. I found this a bit odd but got a bit used to it. I think it would be better on a second stay. Did keep the cost down and was very reasonably priced. Especially for London and this close in.

Delaware, Ohio1 contribution
I am more than reluctant to leave a mere one-star review, but my recent stay at this Sonder establishment has proven to be deeply unsatisfactory, overshadowing my previously positive experiences with the brand. Upon arrival, the absence of an elevator and front desk personnel immediately posed an inconvenience, a precursor to a series of unwelcome surprises. The limited availability of only three lockers for storage in the entire building was strikingly inadequate, and concerns were further fuelled by the notably unsafe neighborhood in which the building is situated. My most significant issue, however, revolved around a persistent and unpleasant odor reminiscent of dirty socks that pervaded the unit. Despite confirmation of the smell by a maintenance person and upon my insistence, another personnel, the hotel disappointingly suggested that there was nothing they could do and casually advised purchasing an air freshener. A solution, I might add, that proved futile. In a concerning security lapse, the safe in the room was malfunctioning and necessitated fixing. And, while it seems a small matter, the paucity of essentials such as towels and paper tissues, which took three long days to be delivered following my request, further diminished the quality of my stay. Also, no AC in the unit so gets hot even in October. Also, sink was not properly draining. Perhaps what has been most frustrating, however, is the need to communicate with five or six different agents to get issues addressed, a far cry from the cohesive customer service one might expect from a reputed brand. My request to be relocated due to the aforementioned issues, even to a pricier apartment, was ultimately denied despite confirmations of the disturbing odor in my unit. As a regular Sonder customer, this ordeal has unquestionably tainted my view of the brand, urging me to contemplate alternative accommodation options in the future.

Your honest feedback is important to us. We're sorry your stay fell short of expectations. We do our best to inform our guests that we don't have a traditional front desk or elevator at this property, but we apologize if anything needed to be clarified. Please accept our apologies for the trouble with the odor in your room and for being unable to fix it. Customer service is one of our top priorities, and we're sorry for dropping the ball here. None of this is the experience we want for our guests. We hope you'll give us the chance to make it up to you in the future.

Second Sonder experience, second time I’ve been forced to wait in my room waiting for someone to come provide a resolution / and that person never shows up. This time my toilet is partially clogged, safe won’t work, the picture frames above the bed are shoddily secured and liable to fall down. Less mission critical, there is hair on multiple sides of the shower wall Figuring out how to file a London short term accommodation complaint. Meanwhile I’m told by the call center on my fourth contact “as far as I can see this is your first request” and “it will take 24-48 hours for a manager callback”

Oh my goodness. Do not think about staying in room 18 or 19 if it’s any time of the year other than deepest winter. The rooms have no ventilation due to window restrictors and a serious overheating problem. No air conditioning and you will wake up feeling sick and dehydrated. A terrible night sleep awaits any guests of these rooms.

Perfect room. Larger than expected, bright, huge windows, window in the bathroom, clean and comfortable. I ended up having a cold for two out of three days we were in London and it was a great place to ride it out. Wish we could bring the room with us.

Clean, comfortable, and in a great location. The check in is unique, but intuitive. My wife and I were very pleased with our experience and will certainly look forward to staying at Sonder locations in the future. Excellent stay!

Clean room, clean property, decent size, comfortable bed, decent location with easy access to transport links but also close enough to walk if you are able. There is only 3 luggage lockers though could be doing with a good few more. Would stay here again.
