Hotel is located within a walking (if you like to walk a bit) distance to most attractions in London and is reasonably priced. However the rooms are tiny and bed takes pretty much all of the space. On top of everything the bed is not so big to allow two people to comfortably sleep on it. And if you have... More

We stayed here for the beer festival at Olympia. We were dreading the hotel hoping we would be too drunk to care. We were surprised.. The bedding was clean. The bathroom was clean and tidy. Brown but no accounting for taste! Lol the TV we had to sort out and it worked.! Just put the scart lead in and searched... More

We chose this as a really close option for Earls Court. It's within 100 yards to the gates and same to the tube - perfect !! That's the best I can say about it. We were on the top floor for 1 night stay. The whole place is extremely run down, ripped stair carpets was the start of the fun.... More

We expected a bit of luxury in this hotel as it is part of the Hilton group, but our room was tiny and very odd triangle shaped, with a brick wall facing onto the window, we had to ask to be moved as we felt too claustrophobic. The 2nd room was someone with disabilites and by the 3rd attempt we... More

Me and my boyfriend booked this hotel as we wanted to be close to the Earls Court exhibition centre as we came to London for the Summer London Film and Comic Convention 2014 so the location was perfect as the centre was just around the corner. The staff we're pleasant enough and our room was G1 the double room, I... More

A very tired old hotel, more like a hostel. The smallest double room I've ever had. Not the cleanest, either. There was only just room to walk on one side of the bed. The furniture seemed to be 1980's flat pack stuff, poorly mended and falling into pieces, and not really any space for it to stand in. The single... More

When we got off the bus and saw our hotel, it was at the side of the building and it looked horrible so I was obviously dreading what my room would look like, our room was on the top floor which was annoying because there was stairs but no lift, when we got into our room it was like a... More

My friend and I booked the Hotel Olympia for two nights to enjoy a day of Wimbledon tennis. When we first arrived I was quite surprised as the picture on the websites to book this hotel are quite misleading as they focus on Warwick Road rather than Earl's Court Square. You can see the entrance to the hotel but it... More
