Hilton London Olympia

 

Every now and then I travel to London for Business (yes, unfortunately I’ve to work to earn money…). As I stay at least one night per trip there, I’ve explored a bunch of hotels in London. I liked (hm, well, I still try to like) the Hilton Hotel chain I’ve stayed in many of their properties in the London area over the last couple of years. Maybe London is the main reason why I stopped being enthusiastic about this chain. Most properties do not really care about their (loyal) guests.

One of the Hilton Hotels I really like is the “Hilton London Olympia” next to the Kensington Olympia station. It is an old building and so are the rooms and the equipment. But…and that’s more important to me they have been friendly and attentive to me during my last 15+ stays. And they also always assigned me a reasonable room. Unfortunately, there are no rooms with a King size bed the Queen size beds in this place are sufficient. Don’t ask me why…

Last night I had again a stay at the Hilton Olympia and took a bunch of pictures….sorry for the low quality….did only have my iPhone with me. But I’m sure you’ll be able to get an impression of my room. I got an upgrade to a ‘Suite’, so this room is slightly bigger than the regular rooms.

They always provide me complimentary bottles of water, a bottle of red wine and some chocolates. Always means always. No other Hilton managed to do so.

Room condition, furniture and bath is really old and worn, but hey, that’s London. Hilton London Green Park for example is not different.

The Hilton London Olympia also offers complimentary full breakfast for HHonors Gold and Diamond members. To be fair, all Hilton branded hotels in London where I’ve stayed so far do offer this. Be aware that this is not true for the DoubleTree brand! Will write about that soon.

My last stay there was back in September so I was really surprised yesterday to see refurnishments in the reception area as well as in the restaurant. Well done! Like it.

Fingers crossed that they keep treating me as in the past.

Dieter
