“A cracking, good value for money hotel with pleasant staff and a good breakfast.”
Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

Booked this through lastminute.com as a secret hotel and couldn't have been more delighted. Lovely staff, spacious and clean rooms, a cracking breakfast and great decor. It is a good ten minute walk from 3 separate tube stations but this is reflected in the price. I recommend walking to the Hammersmith station as there are a few good pubs on the way. Highly recommended!

My sisters Hen weekend was booked here. Very clean everywhere and all staff very helpful!! Even calling taxi's for quotes for our night out! Great location too! I have to say though, I wasnt too impressed that our entire party was separated on different floors but obviously they have to put you where they can find space I suppose. Breakfast was a great selection but you had to eat anything 'hot' very quickly as it was only lukewarm at best, scrambled egg lacked seasoning/taste, sausages were clearly good quality but slightly too pink in the middle for me but still tasty but hey I went back for some yummy fruit and left the restaurant full!! The fragrance making was fantastic part of our hen weekend and I highly recommend it to anyone! I wasn't too happy that on a Sunday morning, housekeeping tried to come in at 9AM then again 20 mins later... we were checking out at 12PM!! After a heavy night, not a welcome knock at our door!! Little too desperate to come in if you ask me! But overall, not too bad.......

Room Tip: Maybe ask for a view if thats important to you...we had a brick wall with windows for a view, but in...

Booked at last minute to see Dara O' Briain at the Apollo for our Wedding Anniversary as my husband loves him. Decide to treat ourselves to a night in the hotel to save having to drive and to enjoy a drink. This Hotel was a perfect spot, just up the road , not too expensive with all the luxury I have come to expect from a Hilton. The whole experience was fab, the room great (very large bed) and spacious, the exec lounge comfy and well stocked. Breakfast the next day was brilliant and they let us have a late check out so there was no rush just a nice relaxing morning and not having to leave until 2.00pm was a added bonus. I will definately book here again when next in hammersmith.

Room Tip: Looking on the web site all the rooms look lovely, if you get the chance to upgrade to an exec one t...

Most of the rooms are good other than the single rooms which are too small. I like the location and the fact that it is well connected through the bus routes to all of London. The bus stop is very close to the hotel and one can hop in and to go to Kensington high street tube which connects you virtually to most of London. I like travelling by buses as London has such fabulous old buildings and when you are in the tube you miss out on these special sights. The concierge at the hotel is very helpful and helps to get taxis at a good rate. They booked me a private taxi to go to Heathrow airport which was cheaper than the Taxi I got from the airport to the hotel. The staff is very helpful and made my stay really comfortable. The breakfast spread is great and the food generally is good too.Some of the rooms may be in the noisier section but I was lucky to get a nice, quiet room..so no complaints.The wi-fi in the lobby is free but in the rooms it is frightfully expensive. A lot of cafes in this area like Pret-a-manger, Wholefood etc have free wifi with great dining options.

The staff were very helpful on arrival and although we arrived 4 hours before check in they let us have a few rooms early. The beds were very comfortable and the general cleanliness was of a high standard. The bar is very nice, and the breakfast was definatly my high light :) only thing I could say bad was the tv was a little temperamental, I nearly got lost on a couple of occasions trying to get back to my room as it was a bit like a rat run in parts, and the chamber maids tried entering the room twice within 20 mins of each other 3 hours before check out.

This hotel is quite dated but unbelievably good value for its location in london. The room was a good size, with a very comfortable bed. You would be hard-pressed to find such a spacious room in london. We stayed during the olympics and paid a reasonable price despite this. The staff were friendly and also let us check out late from our room. The only downside was that the air conditioning was very temperamental.. there was no thermostat that we could adjust and it was far too cold.

We stay here every year when we do Olympia Ecom Expo.

The hotel is handy for Olympia and there are several great restaurants about and it is on Kensington High Street (bit of a hike to the shops end though).

The closest tube station is Olympia for under and overground, the underground service is a bit limited, but you could walk to other tube stations.

The room rate we paid was £180 inc full breakfast and the breakfast is the very best thing about this hotel, fast efficient service and great food and choice. I have not eaten in the restaurant but I am told it is very good as well.

The rooms are to a high standard, th WIFI is not free and at £14.99 a day not cheap, but you can use your BT WIFI if you are a BT customer which is free, Hooray!

I would not stay here for family or personal trips as it is outside my budget, but for business it is great!

Room Tip: Go High and ask for a room at the front of the hotel
