Definitely a very nice place to stay in London, very comfortable beds and modern room which was very clean. LCD tv with quite a few channels, decent breakfast. Only slight downside was that there was no elevator and wifi was incredibly slow, although this may have been because we were on the 3rd floor. All in all, a good stay... More

We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel for a good price and we were pleasantly surprised when we saw the rooms, new, modern but most important clean rooms! The staff was absolutely lovely and helpful especially when we called them on a morning to ask for more rooms immediately for two colleagues (they needed to change from their hotel)... More

Clean and all new place. Nice staff. Decent brakfast with a multi purpose coffee machine. Close to the Olympia where we had an exhibition. On the Picadilly line (Baron's Court) where a 15-20mn ride takes you to Picadilly Circus.

The renovation is obviously on-going, to their credit,however it made for a slightly chaotic arrival: but the reception staff, who are charming, should dress better: if you want to wear ties, then do them up, otherwise find something else smarter to wear. And the question of ' how do you want to pay, cash or card?' doesn't quite match the... More

I stayed at the W14 last week for one night and was pleasantly surprised. The room only cost £44, then there was 10% off on the website, so I wasn't sure just how good it would be. It was fairly easy to find and only a few minutes walk from Barons Court Tube Station. My room had a double bed... More

The room are all new, with an amazing shower! Also the bed was very confortable! I found the room clean and well organize! The position is very closed to 2 underground station so it's easy to reach the city center! I really suggest this hotel!
