I have traveled about 3 million miles in my life, to about 50 different countries. I have stayed in more hotels than I can count. The "Hotel Olympia" is one of the worst "hotels" that I have ever stayed in. I would have canceled my booking, but I booked it on one of those websites that do not allow for...

What I liked about this hotel: Location, price, the en-suite rooms. A lot of drawers to put my stuff in, an electric kettle and tea bags, clean towel and sheets, no bed bugs. The room was really warm. The water pressure in the shower was good. Really nice staff. General information (it didn't influence my overall rating because this is...

Even though the comments were disappointed, booked a room at the hotel because of its location.walking distance from the tube and if you like walking to harrods-30 minutes. The room was too small for two people, no chair to sit on, approx. 8 sq.m.. Reception staff does not even know the basic information. If you come first time in London...

The "hotel" was in a good location near local shops, restaurants and the tube line. However, the room was very small and tired looking (with the exception of the bathroom which was quite fresh). Our window was held together with tape, and being single glazed, we could hear the street traffic very clearly. There were a number of other broken...

I was very happy with this hotel. The rooms are small and basic but very clean and well maintained. Our bathroom had been completely renovated. The hotel is located in a quiet street in Earl's Court in the Chelsea área, and is only a short walk away from the Earl's Court tube station. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants...

This was a really nice place to stay for a few nights, the staff were lovely. It was basically a simple bed and breakfast, but that's not bad for the price. It's also in a fantastic spot, you can just walk to the underground quickly and Kensington gardens isn't very far either.

Awful The rooms are £79 rooms, and the bed to match. All to be expected. But the breakfast...OMG! Rude staff. And the cooked breakfast - apart from eggs cooked there and then - stone cold. Not talking warm. Talking cold. Then when I complained, very huffy, then...both went in the microwave!!! Cooked eggs and all. Left all of it...awful -...

Great deal: acceptable price and amazing neighbourhood. Very calm, quiet at night, very close to earl's court underground station - that lets you get anywhere in London easily. A lot of bus stops in close proximity, a M&S store and lots of interesting restaurants, pubs and fast food places just a few steps away from the hotel. The quality of...

We stayed for 2 nights in room G4. The room had everything you would expect in a hotel of this rating and the price you pay to stay there. People criticising things like the size of the TV, or the brand of the tea/coffee should maybe consider staying somewhere a bit more upmarket if you are wanting higher quality luxuries....
