London was a great experience. Not a lot of sunlight and cold. The people were nice when spoken to, but did not speak if not spoken to. The buildings are older, but I see progress like most modern cities in the US. I recommend a visit to London. Hotel Hilton Olympia was decent.

Location is good but I would recommend staying farther out of the town if you are on a tight Budget. Room was not big enough to hold luggage. Bed was terrible, uncomfortable, small, and dirty. Paid two nights, stored luggage there one night and then left. Not clean enough for my wife to sleep there. I must have booked this... More

I have never written a review on Trip Advisor but I felt compelled to give Hotel Olympia a review after reading some of the other outrageous comments here. Either this hotel borders some trans-dimensional rift where the side we stayed in is located here on earth and the other is in the garbage dump of a planet ruled by mutant... More

Stayed here as the reviews on Booking.com were OK and it was in my price range, but it was worse than expected. The room was as big as a closet, the bathroom door couldn't open properly because the room was so small. The reception team could not speak much English and seemed to be stand ins that could not offer... More

Seeing that the horel was closer to where we intended to go but the hotel itself was in a miserable condition. - dirty carpet - unstable bed - worst of all it had mice roaming around in the night A no go for anyone even at a cheap price.

The room was damp and smelled musty, the mattresses were so lumpy and mine had springs actually sticking out that we had to sleep on top of the duvet with coats over us to even get a couple of hours sleep and that was only because we used our coats as blankets! The carpets hadn't seen a hoover in years... More

Went for one night. Staff were friendly. When we arrived they had not been told we were coming but later on found that we had booked it. The hotel is very very hot inside. The stairs are wonkey. This also caused all the doors to slam because they were leaning in so in middle of the night kept having doors... More

Stayed at The Olympia four nights, provided good hearty buffet breakfast, close to train and buses, very surprised with the cool atmosphere Kensington offered. The Olympia hotel is in a good spot however if you need space step outside as the rooms are small. Staff were very helpful and gave me free wifi for room!
