This was our second trip into London and this time we wanted to stay outside of the touristy areas, the Hilton Olympia was very affordable and rather convenient when using the bus, there was a stop just outside the door. The coffee shop attached to the hotel was very good, as was the hotel restaurant/bar. There isn't too much to do in the general vicinity, there's a few pubs down the road past Olympia station that were quite good and fun. Overall, this was a great hotel choice if you want to be out of the center of it, yet still convenient! Rooms were large, clean and comfortable!

I stayed at this hotel for a Trafalgar tour. It is clean, had a restaurant, breakfast included, and a Costa coffee shop attached. The room was big, great toiletries, towels, teapot, etc. Bed was a bit hard, but nice pillows. Service was good in the dining room for breakfast, lobby staff helpful. There was a bus stop right across the street very convenient. You could walk to shops, Pubs, movie theatre and good restaurants. Kensington Palace was a15 minute walk or less. Easy cab ride to Harrods, theatre or you could take the bus or metro was a good 20 min. walk. Very convenient, nice neighborhood. I would recommend it to other U.S travelers.

Hotel and room were excellent, staff very helpful, room clean, food very good. However, 1st floor room facing Hammersmith Road was very noisy all night due to traffic noise. No hot water in morning between 07:30 and 09:00. Otherwise, nice hotel.

I booked this hotel for a post cruise package. Room was a good size, but the mattresses are old and need to be replaced. There is a bus stop in front of the hotel and another one a few steps away and the underground is about 10 minutes away. Just take bus 9 or 10 and stop by the underground to go to the touristic places. Service was perfect and check in was fast. It was my birthday and the hotel surprised me with a bottle of wine, chocolate muffin, strawberries and mineral water. Nice! The breakfast (included) was excellent with a great variety and their coffee was delicious. My only complaint... Wifi was only available in the lobby. I'll book this hotel again in the future.

Room Tip: For a better sleep choose a room in the back of property

This hotel is one of the regular hotels used by trafalgar tour packages. I started my trafalgar tour in London at this hotel. the rooms were a little small but as I was a single it wasn't that much of a problem. there isn't a lot of activity around the hotel and some construction due to the new building being built across the street. As others have mentioned, it is a 15-20 minute walk to the kensington underground station and maybe a few minutes longer to go the other way to get to the hammersmith underground station. There is a kensington olympia station about 5 minutes away but not many routes stop at this station. there are buses that pass by the hotel, most notably the number 9 and 10 buses that can get you into central london. not a large selection of eateries in the area, you will need to walk 15-20 minutes to the kensington area or the other way to the hammersmith area for more selection.

Wifi is only available downstairs and the signal isn't that strong, there are areas in the lobby that the signal is strongest. Buffet is decent, good selection of meats and items. service was good. While small, the rooms were nice with a flat screen tv. There is a small sundry store in the hotel if you need to purchase essentials. There might be a preschool or day care or something in the back of the hotel as I heard children during the day, not a problem as I was out most of the time. the concierge was very helpful and I was allowed to store my belongings prior to checking in (I arrived a day before the tour started and stayed with friends so stored my main bags at the hotel).

Overall the Hilton London Olympia was a nice place to stay, just that there wasn't a lot of selection in the area. I rate my stay as Good but not sure if I had to pay regular hotel rates if I would stay there again. I think as a hilton, wifi in the room should be standard.
