Can't fault this Premier Inn. Like all the others I've stayed in, you know what you're getting and it's perfect for a weekend away with friends where you just need somewhere basic but decent to wash and sleep. Staff were pleasant and the room was a good size.

The hotel is about a seven minute walk from Earl's Court tube station and is situated on a very busy road. However once inside it is quiet. The staff were unfailingly helpful and friendly. We had an end of corridor room (114) which was very quiet except for an extractor fan outside which was very noisy until 11pm when it... More

close enough to walk into west end, may need transport back, close to Natural History museum, V&A , Hyde park, in all good location. Would be nice if there was a bus stop outside to take you to West end

My husband and I recently stayed here, and while the rooms are sufficiently comfortable and clean for a budget hotel, the lack of security and staff competence is a disgrace. On the last night of our stay, a man was able to enter our room while we were asleep, using a keycard he had been given at reception. The staff... More

I like Premier Inns but the staff at this hotel were exceptional in their customer service. The bar staff in particular were welcoming and engaging. It also helped after a long business day that they had a 'happy hour' from 6 till 8! !Great location, just a five minute walk to the high street where there is everything anyone could... More

Our second visit to this premier inn for a visit to the Royal Albert Hall, I checked in online prior to arrival so check in was an automated breeze, however we were still given a very warm welcome by Mohammed who also served us in the bar. The room was smaller than some other premier inns even when compared to... More

We enjoyed our stay very much. The staff were very helpful especially when ordering our taxis, rooms were clean, bed was very comfortable, and the food was fine. We would stay here again when in London. It is also very near the underground.

A terrible stay in a room the size of a shoebox, with unhoovered carpet and dirty bathroom, no parking within a mile and nowhere to even drop off... The hotel's only saving grace is that it is in W14 but is 1.6 miles from Olympia despite being called the olympia hotel - Stay away, there are several other hotels in... More

The staff here were very friendly and helpful, great location, very close to Earl's Court tube station. The rooms are small compared to most premier inns and the bathroom could have done with a bit of redecoration but the room was comfy and warm and perfect for a weekend break.
