Hilton London Olympia or London Kensington?

I am considering going to London for a quick trip at the end of the month, and will be using Hilton points for my hotel.

Which neighborhood would be best for a woman traveling alone and proximity to a metro location?

Hilton London Olympia
380 Kensington High Street
or

Hilton London Kensington
179-199 Holland Park Avenue

thanks.

the kensington option will put you in a better location than olympia. unless you have a particular affinity for middle eastern food, the olympia area is not very interesting.

I have only stayed at Hilton Olympia twice (last time two weeks ago), the location is fine for solo female traveller; though not quite interesting, except Holland Park. Both hotels are not close to tube station (Kensinton Olympia not convenient), but if you don't mind/prefer the bus, Hilton OLympia has better bus network to major tourist sites.

BTW, I think Hilton Olympia offers the best buffet breakfast in town.
