“London with kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

Hotels that accommodate multiple children can be hard to fine. Premiere Inn-Olympia had rooms that held all five us (kids 1, 7, and 9) comfortable. They offer rooms with a queen and two single and still had room for the provided cot for the little one. Yes, the room was a little cramped but that is expected. The breakfast allowed the kids to eat free which made it a good bargain for us and it also has a good selection of food. Earl's Court tube station is only a 5 minute walk and bus stops leading past the NaturalHistory/Science museums are right in front or you can walk it about 25min. Overall we enjoyed our stay and think with kids, this hotel is hard to beat. We will defiantly look at returning should we return to London.

Service was excellent, staff are wonderful, friendly and helpful. Didn't sleep too well for the stay as our rooms were next to the lift which on arrival at the floor makes a loud 'bing bong' noise. The road is very busy and I found it rather noisy. I would ask to be on a top floor at the rear of the hotel if I stayed here again. Although atm there is building work going on. Overall apart from not sleeping well for the 3 night stay, it is a good hotel, good local and excellent staff.

I wanted an economical hotel for a one-night stopover in west London, prior to a meeting; this one got good TA reviews, so I chose it, and was not disappointed. Unlike many Premier Inns I have stayed in (new, mostly steel, glass and plastic), this is a somewhat rambling old three (?) storey building, well placed for the Earls Court Rd (lots of good restaurants), and very reasonably priced (I paid £69, without breakfast). Apart from some ambient noise (from both inside and outside), there were no problems; staff were friendly and efficient; there's a pleasant bar and dining room (which I did not use, except for a quick light and reasonably priced breakfast). A very good choice if you want an economical hotel in central/west London.

Room Tip: possibly go for a top-floor room facing away from the main road

Dear Alanlid,

Thank you very much for taking your time to complete the reviw. I am very pleased to hear you have enjoyed your stay with us. Regarding the noise the rooms at the street side all have double glazed windows, some guests find it very quite some other sill think it is noisy. Our team is happy to allocate your room in the future should you choose to stay with us again.

We hope to see you back very soon.

Nice bedroom, good cleanliness, comfortable bed and an excellent location, near a supermarket and an underground with lifts and served by the Piccadilly line (Heathrow Airport and St. Pancras station). Lows: wi-fi signal was poor in the bedroom; there is a free quota of internet, ilimited access must be paid (we knew that) but that's cheap; we miss a minibar (we were aware of that too); toilet started to stink in third day.

Aside from a minor grumble my partner had about the bacon (which my daughter and I enjoyed), and some minor issues with the lift, our stay way relaxing and great value for money. The staff were all fantastic and friendly, professional, and up to speed on all aspects of good quality service. We got more than we expected in terms of service and woul definitely stay at this hotel again.

As I say, I'm not surprised to find this hotel with excellent reviews especially as the whole purpose I came online was to write a good review. The asset of this hotel is undoubtedly it's friendly and unpretentious staff - they deserve a pay rise!
