The first suspicion I had of this so called hotel was when I realised the pictures on their website aren't of the outside of hotel olympia but the front of properties down the road. ..the beds are ex bunk beds and my bed has slats missing at the head end so I have to prop the mattress up with my...

Converted town house made into 2 star hotel (they rate them as 3 star ???). Beds were horrible (worst I have tried) and the noise at night/early morning even worse. cleaning and kitchen staff were very noisy from 04.30-07.00. Even with earplugs I did not get much sleep. Could not properly open/close windows. No aircon and rooms were hot. The... More

If you are going to a gig in hyde park and are looking for somewhere cheap to stay close by then this is the place for you....however, if you want a luxury hotel in the centre of London, this isnt the place to be... To be honest if you are paying under £100 per night in London then you cant... More

We had paid in advance through Booking.com and were horrified by what we saw here - nothing like the photos online! DISGUSTING. The room was downstairs, dinghy, dirty, everything broken, dead flies on the bed, dodgy broken light fitting over the bed, dirty walls, broken curtains which would only ever have covered half the window... We never went into the... More

Room in cellar, smelled like a indoor swimming pool, small window directly into the street. Furniture have been mended numerous times, amazing how they still hold together - definitely nothing for a vacation with lots of.... knowwhatImean, knowwhatImean. Bathroom:extremely small and narrow, didn't seem clean. No bedbugs like other have reported. Breakfast - We didn't try. Lots of good alternatives... More

After being given desperate rooms instead of a triple room, they told us that the room wasn't available in night 2/2 and tried to turf us out. Then had the nerve to tell us we couldn't have any type of refund. Never stay at this "hotel"!!!!!!!!!

Booked this hotel as it was the only one I could find in London on the day I stayed at a reasonable price, reading reviews afterwards made me wrongfully regret it because of the horror stories and reviews, I'm not going to say it was 5 star because it's not, but it is a nice well ran friendly hotel, lovely...

I stayed here with my mum for 3 nights in a twin room. The location is really good right by Earls Court station. The area is very pretty and is close to the high street. The room was a little small and felt a bit tired. The beds were old and I didn't have the best sleep. The bathroom was... More

The room was on the top floor and no lifts. We could clearly hear the people in the next room. We had a room with a double and a single but it was very small. The window next to the single bed did not have a blind so light streamed in from early morning. The bed was very soft and... More
