Sad night

On arrival no one was there to check us in. When they did come they asked us to pay for the room when we had already paid in full. The person before us was complaining that their TV was not working and our friends, who had checked in the day before said their TV was not working. The room was very small and walls water damaged. The TV did not work. The bathroom door could not be opened fully as it hit the bed. The double bed was hard up against the wall so it was hard to get in and out. The tea/coffee provided had flimsy plastic disposable cups that could not have boiling water without burning your hands. THE WiFi was useless

Bathroom was the only clean place

The bathroom was good and clean. Hope that the sheets were clean as well but everything else was dirty. I had to wake up in the middle of the night to make shure I wasnt against the wall. The first thing I noticed was the mattress, for that I dont have the words. If its so old and covered with dirt and stuff, then hotel should cover it up. It really sceares off at the first. The location was good, right near the Tube station. Visited the hotel at the beginning of march 2013. In conclusion - next time I will save a little more money and stay in decent place.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

The Tube saves a lot of time and will get you in few minutes everywhere, eaven during the rush hours. 1 full day ticket to adult costs under £8 and with that you can use Tube as much as you need. Defenitly recoment it.

Not a 3 star hotel

When we arrived, the receptionist told us that we didn't have a reservation, and when we showed the confirmation of our booking and payment, he said that he never had heard about the website. They wanted us to pay again, which we refused. After a long discussion we finally got a twin room, even though we had booked a double. The room was extremely small, there was hardly room to fit the suitcase, the wardrobe and cupboard couldn't open since they stood to close to the beds and there were no hooks to hang neither your jackets nor your towels. You didn't get shampoo which you would expect from a three star hotel. All in all not priceworthy, and more a 1 star than a 3 star hotel.

Hotel Olympia Earls Court.

The rooms ajacent to the main road are extremely noisy with the traffic, the rooms at the back are much smaller but quieter. This is a no frills place, basic and simple, location is pretty good with tube only a couple of mins walk away.

The staff were very unhelpful

The staff were very unhelpful and the facilities were dirty. The room was small, hardly a double as was claimed. The traffic noise was extremely loud and we could not close the window as the room was hot and stuffy. We asked for some form of fan but the staff again were, initially, not very helpful. The 'Continental' breakfast was a joke.
