“Budget hotel with four star quality”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

This was a nice hotel where I could stay again. It is supposed to be a budget hotel but the quality of the room and the service was much better than in most of the three and four star hotels I have stayed in London. Staff was friendly and helpful. Reception was manned 24h and access to lifts and corridors was secured with the key card.

For London standards the room was quite spacious; bathroom was good size. Our room was on the first floor with window towards the garden. It was very quiet with no disturbing sounds either from the inside or the outside of the hotel. Both the room and the bathroom were extremely clean throughout our stay. Heating/ventilation system was a bit loud and at first it was difficult to keep the temperature comfortable but we got used to it by the third night. There were several electric sockets to plug in phone, camera, etc. Only negative thing were the beds. We have stayed in two Premier Inn hotels and in both of them our twin room did not have two beds but a double bed and a smaller bed that is more like a sofa bed. Sofa bed may work well for a child or a small adult but for both of us it was too narrow and short, plus the mattress was not that comfortable.

Location was good; I always like to stay in Earl’s Court and Gloucester Road area because of easy access to Heathrow and city centre. Bus stop was 200 meters from the hotel and Earl’s Court Underground Station within 10 minutes walking distance. There are several cafés and fast food and other restaurants in the area, also proper supermarket that is open until 11 pm every day.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay here at Premier Inn London Kensington Olympia. I am delighted that you found it to be a positive experience.

At Premier Inn many of our twin rooms are set up in the same way, one double bed and one sofa bed, which converts to a single bed with single mattress. We regularly carry out checks on all our beds to ensure they are of the right standard and comfortable. I will ensure to replace the one you had if there is a problem with it.

Here at Premier Inn, we pride ourselves on our product and our high levels of customer service. It is only through feedback such as yours that we are able to continually drive and push these standards.

I do hope to welcome you back here again in the near future.

Kind Regards

Situated 10 minutes walk from Earls Court Tube (make sure you use Oyster card for tube travel).
Premier Inn are making an excellent name for themselves and this hotel did not let them down.
Booked 3 months in advance so got a good rate (£250 for 3 nights) for location.
Hotel clean and friendly.
Breakfast at £8.50 (all you can eat / drinks) is excellent value for the location.

We booked a Premier inn because we regard their hotels as reliable ,if a little predictable. This is not an issue when all you want for a short stay is a clean, pleasant, safe and comfortable hotel. We were not disappointed with Kensington, it is conveniently situated for Earl's Court tube station and the exhibition hall. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the "meal deal" is good value when you don't want to spend time looking for a restaurant in the area, you do not expect cordon bleu at a Premier Inn,but the quality of their meals is better than many places that purport to be restaurants. We would have no hesitation in staying here again, a very satisfactory experience.

Room Tip: Less traffic noise at the back.

The signal beds in the family room were extremely uncomfortable. You could feel the springs just by running your hand across the mattress and laying on it was very difficult. Not much sleep had.

My husband and had a two night stay recently. The hotel is situated a short walk from Earls Court tube station so very convenient for travelling to any part of the city. The room was as usual for a Premier Inn, spotless. We enjoyed an evening meal in the restaurant and the breakfast was excellent. The staff were unfailingly helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay there again.
