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!

Stayed here with 3 of my friends, we were in Kensington for a competition. This hotel should be closed down; I mean to say it is disgusting. I cannot understand how my extensive research on the property was so deceiving. The place should be condemned, everything falling apart. No local staff or hospitality, no wireless available, all the requests for... More

Really close to Earls Court underground station. We took a room with private bathroom for 6 days ad it was clean everyday. The staff is very kind and helpful. There was a wi-fi even if it wasn't so performant.

It's a fair hotel by the price. It's close to the Earl Court Underground station which has lines to Heathrow and downtown London. The wifi is free but is quite weak on the top floors. Unfortunately there is no lift and no air conditioning on the room.

I wasn't planning on writing about this Hotel, but having had a look at the majority of the reviews that are on here already, I thought I should. The other reviews here mention small rooms, a run down decor, noise, claustrophobia, and all manner of other things. My response to this is, WHAT ON EARTH DO YOU EXPECT? I stayed... More
