After a long, tiring day at London Film and Comic con, we headed back to our hotel, the Hilton Olympia which was a 5 minute walk away which came in very handy getting up on Sunday to get our VQ tickets. Unfortunately that’s one of the only good things about our experience.
The room was good, don’t get me wrong, it’s probably one pf the best hotel beds I’ve ever slept on, and I slept well but the service in the bar / restaurant was atrocious! We waited an hour for food only for it to come out cold and an orange juice, which took 25 minutes to reach us, was served luke warm not cold as you’d expect. My main was a lot smaller than I expected too… Two burgers the same size as my dip dish.
One plus point however was the comic con menu they’d put on with “The Hulk” cocktail; a strong rum based one!
I’d recommend the hotel to stay at due to its close proximity to the Olympia convention centre but, avoid the restuarant. There are nicer places to eat in the area – Pizza Express and a local pub called the Hand and Flower.
