I was booked at the K West through Hotwire after buying a 4-star hotel in the Kensington area of London. This is not a 4-star property. Not even close. The website makes it look hip, which it may be in the lobby, but the rooms are dumpy. Our sink wouldn't drain, and still wasn't fixed after our complaints. The room we had was not particularly clean either. We stay at a lot of hotels and are relatively easy to please, but this place is just not worth the price, even in overpriced London. And I have never written a bad review of a hotel ever.
Another caveat, the closest Underground station is closed for renovations. Walking to the next closest, 10 minutes away, is not bad, but be warned that this is the case. Buses are nearby and work well.
I think the worst part of the stay was the cab ride out that the hotel arranged. We had two stops, one to the Eurostar train station and the other to Paddington station to transfer to Heathrow. We asked to go to Paddington first, but the cab driver took us to Eurostar first instead. That was not so bad, but I heard later from my boyfriend that the cab driver almost insisted he drive him to Heathrow for 30 extra euro, and that he wasn't going to Paddington. My boyriend threw a fit and should have reported him, but just beware. It would not have been safe for a woman alone, and the hotel should NOT be calling cab drivers like this or their guests.
