Stayed in August and after reading some dodgy reviews we were little apprehensive about staying here but please ignore all bad reviews!! The W14 hotel was great, completely refurbished and modern rooms with brilliant bathrooms attached too. (Shower is amazing!) We found the breakfast absolutely fine and the warm croissants are lovely. Barons court is the nearest tube and is... More

This little hotel is great! So close to the tube, easily accessible to everything and in SUCH a perfect location. Very residential so it's quiet and safe. The renovations were still going, but I hardly noticed! The staff were so kind and accommodating. They really helped me in every way they could. The rooms were so nice and clean. Comfortable... More

The hotel has been newly refurbished, and though it may not seem it from the outside it is actually very nice on the inside. The rooms are lovely with a really big shower and the continental breakfast was perfect. Nice selection of channels on the flat screen TV.Had cereals, cold meats, fruit, yogurts, toast, croissants and pastries and Jam.

My Mother and I visited the W14 about a month ago during our 11 day stay in London. The overall stay was nice in some ways, but stressful in others. One of the best things about the hotel was its affordability and its look. The new modern design of the suites and communal quarters were beautiful and the bathroom rain... More

As many of the recent reviews have stated, we were unsure what to expect from W14. When we finally arrived, we were more than pleasantly surprised. The hotel is in a great location, and you can tell right away that much work has been put into its refurbishment. Everything was clean and modern from the small lobby to our room... More

I found the W14 on my trip advisor, read the good and bad reviews and took the risk and booked 3 nights. Upon arrival, I was surprised, due to the construction and that it was in the middle of a sweet residential neighborhood, and the hotel is made from of a few of these buildings. Once inside the room comfort... More

They are just finishing off renovating this hotel, however the work is being done during the daytime upstairs and our room was downstairs, so this had next to no impact on our stay! Staff are friendly and helpful, room was modern and very comfortable, and ensuite facilities were amazing, best shower I've ever had! Overall I can't complain.

We stayed in the hotel for one night after a night out in London. Great hotel, lovely clean room and a good shower! Staff were very helpful and check in was quick. Reception offered us directions to nearby places of interest and gave us a map to help us around. Decent breakfast and clean, relaxing breakfast room. Would definitely stay... More

The hotel was located well, near picadilly and district line. Rooms were refurbished, great shower, friendly and helpful staff. The only - point was the breakfast, which is sufficient for a short stay, however it is minimal (crossaint, rolls, cereals, yoghurt, cheese, ham and marmelade) Would have been good to have some other options: like boiled eggs?
