This hotel was picked for its price and location (very close to the Paddington Stations). The hotel is on a very quiet street. The rooms are typical European--small but clean and comfortable. I just wish they used a fitted sheet of a flat sheet that could go under the mattress. Internet in the lobby is free but you need to... More

My cousin and I checked in, and the receptionist only gave us one key. I asked for another one because there would be three of us and he said no, I can't. (Um ok?) We paid for internet for the week, but there is free wifi in the lobby. It said it was a no smoking hotel, but when we... More

I expected the rooms to be small. That was okay. It seemed cleaned but the beds were HORRIBLE! You could feel the bed springs in the beds!!! And they wouldn't turn on the AC even though the day temp was in the 80's. Often our wet towels that we tossed in the tiny shower were simply re-hung.... "Breakfast" is served... More

Good location, close to paddington station. Got a room that was located in the basement. Smelled like old cigarettes. Could hear everything above us, including walking around. Breakfast was annoying because you are forced to sit with strangers by kitchen maids although several tables are open, they hold these for parties of 4 or fill tables up with 4 people... More

Hotel This hotel is on a street full of small hotels, parking is non existent and we had to follow some random man in a shirt to park up 2 streets down. Some random negotiation between him and another guy and we handed over £10 - very strange. The welcome was also a bit strange with I think the receptionists... More

One of many hotels that are within a short walk of Paddington Station, the Olympic House Hotel was a pleasant stay for our 5 nights in London. Our room had a double bed and 2 twins which just barely allowed for space to walk around the room, but was perfect for our family of 4. The room was very clean,... More

It's great arriving at Paddington from the Heathrow Express and having only a short last leg of the trip to the Olympic House. Rooms are small for the most part. But they did a big renovation a few years ago, and everything works nicely. For the price, the hotel offers good value.

Very poor Internet connection. If you need good Internet, you should go outside to do your work. Good location, nothing more. For this price, you can find better hotel. The room was clean, but very small.

The rooms and other facilities are perfectly clean. The rooms however microscopically small. Just big enough for a king seize bed and 80cm around. Internet in the rooms has to be paid extra. Breakfast is limited but just enough. Staff is very supportive. Situated in the hart of London makes it an ideal place for a London visit
