We booked just for one day in this hotel near Kensington at the end of zone 1 of London metro. We chosen it for the position, not certainly for the price or the services. Price indeed was not comparable with the service, 100 pounds, for a really small old double room where is really uncomfortable to move, with a small... More

Once again I find myself questioning why an establishment has such a low scoring. I stayed here for a 2 week business trip, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay! I arrived after a hell on earth tube experience; the hotel is a short walk from Earls Court tube station. The check in staff were friendly and informative, check in was... More

Location - quiet neighborhood, very close to the Earl's Court Tube Station. Few restaurants and supermarkets are in 5mins walk distance. Night bus stops in the front of the hotel. Room size, cleanliness, sleep quality - probably even below average but nothing more can be expected for this price in London. However, breakfast is okay and the staff is polite.

Room tiny, shabby, felt dirty, claustrophobic. Breakfast was chaotic; manager was loud and rude. Restaurant staff did not speak any English. Reception staff friendly enough and tried to be helpful. It is not a nice place to stay so I can't imagine it is a nice place to work and this certainly comes across. I would really recommend paying a... More

It's very close to the Earl's Court Tube Station and various museums. Good walking distance from Harrods too. However the rooms are rather old, and the bathroom's aren't really extremely pristine, with some cracked tiles and ring of rusts around the bath tub, and the toilet. Towels, small soap bars and sachets of shower gel, and glass cups are provided... More

Far from average standards, but no so bad.... Centrally located, just few meters away from Earl's Court Tube Station, restaurants, pubs and supermarkets... in a quite peaceful area. I spent only one night in Oliver Hotel, which I chosed because of its position, very close to Holiday Inn Kensington Forum where I had to sit my NEBOSH Exam the following... More

Apart from the very polite and friendly lady who checked me in there was nothing I liked about this place. They say rooms ready from 12.00. Not the case. I was put in a box on the ground floor very close to reception and the kitchen. The door was made of plywood with a 1970's lock. The bathroom was like... More

The rooms are dark, dingy and very out of date.The bathroom was teeny tiny, I could barely turn around in the shower! The whole hotel and rooms smelt old and unwelcoming. The only upside was that the lady on the front desk was nice and the room was clean after my full inspection! Also, first thing on Sunday morning, the... More

We paid 50% more than at the Premier Inn a block away and got 50% less. The upholstery of the cushions, provided as additional "pillows", and bedcovers were frayed. The washroom was so small that it only allowed a 32cm entrance with a freely-suspended, hanging door. The shower stall was too small to contain a soap-dish or dispenser, so one... More
