Worst hotel I've ever been to. Miserable, unfriendly staff. Broken kettle, leaking bathroom ceiling, one flat pillow to sleep on, filthy Windows that haven't seen a cloth since the jubilee, weak wifi only available be in a small area of the room, no spare chair to sit on or mirror in bed room. I know it's a cheapish hotel, but...

The only good thing about this hotel was the woman on reception who checked us in. She was very friendly and helpful. The room was dirty, it had blood on the wall, the lights didn't work, the mattress was stained yellow and when I told the manager this he just said he'd make a note of it! Also he was...

I booked this hotel for my son and his dad for 2 nights. Total cost £190 which inclouded breakfast. The room on arrival was disgusting. There was mould on the walls, the room smelt of rorren egg, the bed was dirty with hairs in it. The milk for coffee was 7 months out of date and fell out the pot...

This has to be the worse place I have ever stayed. Me and my husband lasted one night out of the 3 we where suppose to stay. The next day we booked into another hotel. The room was around a million degrees and no way of turning the heating down as the radiator was broken, the window was also broken...

The room was small - not a surprise. The shower head was held on by tape - not so great. The guy when I checked in was delightful - his name was Pepe. The heat had also been left on full blast so it was like a sauna. (They had to get someone in to turn it down.) The cleaning...

I have traveled about 3 million miles in my life, to about 50 different countries. I have stayed in more hotels than I can count. The "Hotel Olympia" is one of the worst "hotels" that I have ever stayed in. I would have canceled my booking, but I booked it on one of those websites that do not allow for...

What I liked about this hotel: Location, price, the en-suite rooms. A lot of drawers to put my stuff in, an electric kettle and tea bags, clean towel and sheets, no bed bugs. The room was really warm. The water pressure in the shower was good. Really nice staff. General information (it didn't influence my overall rating because this is...

Even though the comments were disappointed, booked a room at the hotel because of its location.walking distance from the tube and if you like walking to harrods-30 minutes. The room was too small for two people, no chair to sit on, approx. 8 sq.m.. Reception staff does not even know the basic information. If you come first time in London...

The "hotel" was in a good location near local shops, restaurants and the tube line. However, the room was very small and tired looking (with the exception of the bathroom which was quite fresh). Our window was held together with tape, and being single glazed, we could hear the street traffic very clearly. There were a number of other broken...
