I was in this hotel with my mom between 19-20.11-13, it is ok if you just want to sleep. Staff was very unfriendly, reception persons tried, but the others...no good morning, no goodbye no nothing and when we try to ask some advise to some place and shop, they criticise our choises and so on..breakfast was ok, but the åerson...

Cons - Too Little space in the room and in the toilet - Asked for a kingsize double, but didn't even got a full double bed.... More

Shoddy rooms, very poor, semi clean ie bathroom. The ABSOLUTE minimum for an over night stay. Cant see how owners can get away with this quality in 2013 for the price. Hotel inspectors would have a field day. Breakfast rushed and impersonal (not I suspect the staffs fault). I will not return to this hotel. my wife was very disappointed... More

We chose Hotel Oliver because of its moderate price and excellent location. During our 7 day visit to London we were able to use the tube at a nearby location for several tours. The Hotel is nothing fancy, yet clean and their morning breakfast satisfied our needs quite well. I would recommend this Hotel to anyone who has the needs... More

We couldnt get booked anywhere we usually stay in Kensington, so we booked here. Booked for two nights, partner stayed for one, I turned up next day and was appalled. Room was tiny, old fashioned, carpets threadbare, bathroom handle broken, bathroom disgusting and smelly. No aircon, only an old fan, rattly windows, endless queue to just collect a room key....

We stayed in this hotel for a long weekend. We arrived early, but the receptionist very helpful finding a room ready for us. Although small it was clean, with lovely soft towels and crisp Cotten sheets. The shower room was also small, but adequate enough. There was a TV with DVD, hair-dryer and trouser press. Considering the cost, I was... More

I stayed at this hotel with my daughter in a twin room for two nights. We already knew that Earls Court is a great location to use as a base when visiting London. The hotel is very reasonably priced and comes with no frills. We were late in booking the hotel so we got the last twin room which was... More
