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

We slept at this hotel for 3 nights. First of all I have to admit that this room was very small, but my friend and I didn't need much space anyway. Caused by thin windows it was quite noisy, but with earplugs it was no problem for me to sleep (furthermore I was so tired after discovering London I could... More

Unclean, not at all well maintained (my bed was missing half of the staves) and the room was lile an oven. We had to sleep with the window fully open IN JANUARY to sleep. No wifi. The only good point we found for this hotel was the location.

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.
