Little gem in Kensington
Second time we have stayed at this hotel,ideal location

Excellent location, great service, good rooms
The Seraphine Olympia is tucked away at the western end of High St Ken. A few minutes from the tube station, it is ideally located for Kensington and central London. The entrance is inauspicious, but the interior is pleasing and the service welcoming. Aranit must be one of the best receptionists in London, a far cry from what passes for service in so many London hotels. The rooms are modern and well appointed. Breakfast is simple and can get crowded, but again the staff do well to manage it actively to reduce waiting. All in all highly recommended.

Very good 8.0
Not the friendliest reception when arriving, however the person checking us out was really nice. The rooms were nice enough but really noisy when guests were going in and out of their rooms, it sounded like someone was coming into our room each time someone left or entered their room which was quite unsettling. The air con was in Spanish so had to guess how to use it. Breakfast was ok but very crowded in a small area.

Great low cost hotel
We’ve used this hotel three times now. It’s reasonable priced, clean, comfortable and breakfast is included. Only ten minutes walk from Kensington tube station. Perfect for a quick visit to London

Fair 4.0
Aweful customer service, smelly and mouldy rooms
My friends arrrived at the hotel before me and were denied check in even though they had the booking reference number. They were told that they could only check in if I (the reservation holder) emailed the hotel directly with the email confirmation and included their names as instruction to check in. They were told that this was for security because someone had recently entered the property and tried to attack someone. I didn't have signal at the time so this was an issue. After I arrived at the property I was not asked for any ID at all. We went to the room and found that there was black mould all over the walls and it stank of damp. The receptionist did then offered an alternative room quickly but this one had a overpowering smell of smoke/ chemicals (not sure what it was!) we were told this was the only option and that there were no more rooms available. We begrudgingly took this room and had to get used to the smell. When asked for further action we were told that the manager would be there on Monday (after we were due to leave) and that there was nothing else that they could do. Location - brilliant for Kensington and Olympia and this property's only saving grace Rooms- fine for the price so long as you don't get one that smells or has mould. Customer service - Although they changed rooms quickly and pleasant for the rest of the weekend I felt completely let down. I can't believe how they treated my friends when they checked in. Just aweful.

Too much noise from the cars. Hear the clattering of glasses being emptied in the bins at 1am in the morning over at the nearby cafes/resturants Hear people on the street having conversation late at night. Small rooms - my opinon not worthy a 4 star hotel.
