5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Very comfortable hotel, friendly and helpful staff, good food and a nice little bar to relax in. As the hotel is situated a few minutes away from a tube station it makes traveling around London and getting back to your hotel easy.

We stayed at this Premier Inn for 3 nights for a mid week break. The location is great, only a 5 minute walk from Earls Court tube station. Despite being on a main road, the noise of the traffic was kept from us by double insulated windows. The staff were very helpful and professional and the room was clean, comfy and spacious. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed at this hotel for 17 nights and requested a street view room. We were given a large room on the 3rd floor overlooking the main street. When we arrived the traffic was quite heavy so we were a bit concerned that we may have been bothered by traffic noise at night. Not to worry though everything was fine and we had the most comfortable bed that we have had in a hotel for a long time, abd as they say 'rest assured', well it really was. thre staff were first class, nothing was any problem to them and they were all very friendly and helpful.
The restaurant had a good selection of food, weel presented andvery enjoyable. I must mention one on the waitresses a young lady by ther name of Enenhem (hope i have spelt her name right) she was one of the most friendliest people we have met i a long time, she would constantly check on how our meals were and if she could be of any further assistance. We would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone as well as being so comfortable it is only about 5min walk to Earls Court Underground.

Having stayed in Premier Inn's before we knew what to expect but the staff at Kensington-Olympia far excel anywhere else. Although our room was quite small and I feel the bathroom was not up to Premier Inn standard.
I really wished I had learnt the names of some of the staff because they were amazing and nothing was too much trouble,they will even book you a taxi if needed.
A must for us when we visit London in the future.

Just come back from having an excellent weekend break in London with the family. We stayed in the Premier Inn (Olympia) in South Kensington. This is an excellent location for those that don't want to be staying in the centre of London but wish to be able to 'come and go' easily. Simply took the tube (Piccadilly Line) from Kings Cross directly to Earls Court (no changes needed). Hotel is located 5 minutes walk from Earls Court. My mother in Law is in her 80's and she managed it with no problems. The hotel is very clean and each room has TV, shower and drink making facilities. No room service though which some people like to have. The beds are really comfortable and we found the hotels "Shhhsh" policy to work brilliantly. We never heard a thing once we were in our rooms. We also liked the added security that in order to get access to the upper floors you must use your room key card to use the lifts. We found the staff to be excellent. They cannot do enough for you and they actually seem to enjoy their jobs. Breakfasts are also excellent. £9.75 for an all you can eat breakfast. Cereals, toast, full English excellently cooked, croissants, muffins and of course COSTA coffee. Great value for money. There is also a nice relaxing bar. Drinks priced very reasonably. My only criticism of this stay was with the evening meal we had on our first night. Sat down at 7pm and it took an hour to get each course served. We were still eating at 10pm. In view of this we did not have any further evening meals in the Hotel and I have to award 4 out of 5 for service . This may have be a 'one off'. Apart from this, we found the hotel and staff to be great. We will definitely use this hotel again and I certainly recommend it.
