Hammersmith Tube station is actually two stations across the road from each other. The terminus station is served by the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines. The other station connected to the Broadway Shopping Centre. This is served by the Piccadilly and District lines.

The stations are quite busy but there are staff available to help if you are not sure. In addition there is a bus station here and you can get buses from here to many parts of west London.

No toilet roll or soap

50p to get in and no toilet roll or soap. Had to hand out my tissues to the other women in there. Where exactly is the money going? It was early in the day on Friday so couldn't have been overly busy.

A grin on a grimy face
Feb 2021
Local historian Keith Whitehouse described Hammersmith as 'the Centre of the Universe' due to so many influential people having lived here and so much innovation taking place. These days the area is full of traffic, the huge and blocky Broadway Centre slouched among it, and King Street has seen better days. But there are green spaces by the river and the Bridge, while not now in use, seems to have converted itself into a gigantic sculpture marking the gateway to the South (bank of the river). Those riverside pubs won't drink themselves dry - once they are allowed to reopen. Hammersmith is a place of surprising green corners and loveliness from time to time and you can find yourself stepping from grimy modernity to an apparent village heart in moments, so suddenly and unexpected that you think you have stepped into a novel of parallel worlds.
It's gone upmarket a lot these days, has Hammersmith, and it's somehow lost the grin on a grimy face it used to have, but as with the village heart, it's there from time to time.

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Chef made us special halal chicken for dinner and halal sausages for breakfast.

They even guided us with taxis and prices. They went out of the way to hell us in any way.

Room was very comfortable and clean. I will definitely come back again.

Visit prior to a concert
Dec 2019 • Solo
I was in the area for a concert at the Apollo. Needed to pick up tickets before main doors opened so went to the nearby (Broadway) shopping mall briefly. Number of coffee shops etc but neither of the two I went to (McDonalds + another) had customer toilets.
There are toilets at one end of the Mall, nowhere near the cafe I went to & you have to pay 50p for the pleasure. The cubicle I used had no paper & flush in that & another were very poor.
As I came from the tube I recall walking past a Thames Water dispenser but wanted to sort my tickets first. The directions to the Apollo were not totally clear & I went up to the bus station area in error but was able to get assistance from the info point there.
On my return I tried to recall where the water point was but couldn’t find it so asked a TFL ‘Customer Service Assistant’ & was told there wasn’t one! I eventually located it opposite the info point in the bus station. Trying to be helpful I went back to the TFL guy & told him where it was in case others asked. I also asked why he told me there wasn’t one & his response was there’s not one here ie in the entrance to the tube. He also said if someone else asked him he’d tell them there wasn’t one. Totally gobsmacked by this I asked an ‘assistant’ in the other entrance if he knew of a water dispenser & got a similar response ie there’s not one here. When I pointed out where one was he said that’s the bus station & nothing to do with here. His response to aren’t you all TFL was this is the tube they are buses so you need to ask at their info point. His justification was then to ask where I lived & then ask me what I would say to someone who asked me about pubs on the opposite side of LONDON from my home The logic of that completely floored me.
On the plus side the concert was brilliant & egress & access to the tube far easier than what happens after Olympic Park events

Good train connections

We arrived in Hammersmith from City Airport via Kings Cross station with no trouble at all-we've continued to travel around various parts of London from either of the stations with ease too. Hammersmith is a lovely leafy suburb, with some nice shopping and restaurants tucked away if you go looking for them. So it may not be a super destination in itself, but it's a very easy place to base yourself to get around.

Decent area of London
May 2019 • Solo
Used to live in the area years ago and it hasn't really changed very much. King St is a good shopping street containing the usual high street brands, but everything you need. There are some fine houses and contains a mix of social housing as well. The underground station is also a major bus interchange station as well, so useful for getting around west London. There's also two shopping centres in the area, one inside the underground station and the other on King Street.

The Hammersmith Bridge across the River Thames is worth a small detour if you're in the area. There's no real reason for the average tourist to visit Hammersmith though.
