I was supposed to stay at the Cromwell Crown but they moved me to the Olympia. No advanced warning. No explanation. No assistance with getting to the other hotel The location of The Olympia was excellent but: The Wi-fi only extends to the reception area so there were about 5 of us huddled with our laptops on our knees. No... More

It has all been said before - I stayed here with my wife to fill a gap in our itinerary - we took a chance. BEWARE THIS HOTEL AND NEVER, EVER STAY HERE. Little insects flying around the basin, grimy furntiture, dated, mouldy, smelly, filthy, fetid, appalling customer service and I could just go on.... Remember Fawlty Towers? That place... More

We had never experience anything like that before. We were badly bitten by bed bugs. At the moment we have skin infection caused by bed bugs. I do not need to explain the suffering that this caused and continues to cause to my family.

I was actually pleasantly surprised when i reached this hotel. I stayed in a room on the same floor as the reception and it was fine. The receptionist helped us... More

Wanted to spend a couple of days in London, was attracted by price and location. On the upside, the location was ideal, very central. On the down side... grubby exterior, litter and debris in evidence. Scruffy hand written notices on door warning that keys must be left. Difficulty checking in, language problems. The bedroom had a tiny portable tv, a... More
