“Close to Earl's Court on the convenient District and Picadilly lines . . .”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

The Oliver Plaza Hotel is just a block around the corner from the Earl's Court tube station in London. It is so easy to deplane at Heathrow, get on the tube, and be at your hotel within an hour. This hotel had a decent sized bathroom with a window, even if the room was rather cramped. I appreciated the fact that there were two mirrors in the room, one small and one larger to check out how you look before leaving the room. There was some street noise, but not enough to deter me from going back. The staff were all nice and very helpful. We had an issue with the safe in the room. Apparently, you have to press # before and after your code (even though the instructions do not tell you this). Also, there are no clocks in the room. What happened to rooms having clocks? There was not one on the phone that I remember. Anyway, the price was right, but the convenience was the selling point for me.

Room Tip: The higher up room you get, the farther away from the street noise . . .

I expected the room to be much more smaller than it was. It had kicthen and even a washing machine and a fridge. The staff was willing to help at any time. The only drawback was the dinning room, which was quite small.

All in all, a good hotel for the price, well communicated by underground and train.

We stayed in London for two days after a cruise, to see the sights and get a taste of London.
Everything in London is expensive, and rather than pay 200 pounds or more on a room, we took a chance on a less expensive room.
Only one block from Earl's Court, this hotel is very central and in a very good spot for walking to the tube, buses and really decent places to eat. The hotel is a very short bus ride or tube ride from Kensington, a great shopping area that includes Herrods. Once in Kensington, you can board the Big Bus Tour that takes you to all the tourist sights and shopping areas of London for 30 pounds per person, and you can get on and off the bus any time you want for a period of 24 hours. Very handy! If you'd rather take a cab from Kensington to the Oliver Plaza, it's about 12 pounds to do that and quite inexpensive, and not as stressful as the bus or tube.
The hotel staff are VERY FRIENDLY and ACCOMMODATING. Kevan, the hotel manager did everything he could to make our stay a good one. And the room cleaning staff was quick to respond to our requests for more towels or anything else.
The rooms are VERY SMALL....we had luggage from a 2 weeks cruise and honestly, there's hardly room to store your suitcases in the size of the room....picture 2 single beds against the walls, with a very narrow night table between and a desk almost immediately at the end of the bed..that's the space you get. WE had a nice window that opened, so that was a plus. Although the rooms were very small, the beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean, but the whole hotel is in an old house (as most of them are in that area) and so it sure could use some upgrading. The area was quiet for the mostpart, but you could hear the people next door quite easily. For the amount of time we spent in the room, I was glad we didn't spend any more pounds on something else.
If you are looking for clean, friendly, central , reasonably priced including breakfast, and don't mind small and a bit tired, this is a very good place to stay. Think Comfort Inn style only smaller....When in London, do NOT expect what we get here in Canada or the U.S .for a reasonably priced hotel....
We ate at an Italian restaurant on Earl's Court and a Thai restaurant on one of the side streets and they were both reasonably priced and tasty.
I would certainly recommend this hotel for a short stay.

Room Tip: lots of stairs, so opt for the ground floor. they do have bigger rooms if you request them but of c...

Dear John,

Thank you for your recent review of Oliver Plaza Hotel.

I am delighted that you enjoyed our warm and friendly service. As always our location, facilities and service has combined well to make your stay with us an enjoyable experience.

The rooms may seem a bit small for our guests from the US and from Canada. Our hotel is in a converted building, therefore we have different room sizes, and no standard room size. Indeed, within the same category they could be different.

Warm regards,
Kavin

We spent two nights at the Oliver Plaza on a holiday. We were greeted by a very friendly staff that set the mood for a very nice stay. As a Canadian I am used to large motel/hotel rooms. This room although adequate was small by North America standard. We were very happy with the breakfast that was provided and was in the price making this hotel even more reasonable. The location was convienent to both bus, subway as well as restaurants being within a short walk. We enjoyed our stay very much and woud highly recommend this property. There is no question you would not regret staying here.

Room Tip: Rooms are small ask for a large room if you require same, but not sure if they have any.

This hotel provided excellent service. It was ultra clean and very well positioned for buses and tube. The staff were pleasant and obliging. It was good value for money.
The room was small by North American standards but functional nonetheless. The beds were comfortable. There was an elevator, safe and hairdryer provided, with access to an iron. The breakfast was very generous.

Room Tip: We had room 108, which was quiet.
