Historical Traveler Reviews K West Hotel & Spa London
Our visit to London was our first and very exciting. The K West hotel was less than a 5 min walk to the tube and we were able go go all over the place. It was a visit we will never forget. The hotel was fabulos! It exceeded my expectations and the service was the best.
What a FAB Hotel
What a great hotel!! Had one of the best stays ever. With super large beds and a great selection of DVDs to watch on the widescreen. Great bonus to have free use of the gym, Jacuzzi and other facilities. Great look, funky bar just vry cool all round. Didnt try the treatments but my partner tried the hot stone massage and he raved about it. Definately worth a visit!
K West is a terrrific hotel!
I, and a traveling companion, had the good fortune to stay at the K West Hotel in London and we were extremely pleased with the accommodations and service. After searching the internet profusely for the hotel that would meet our needs: 1/ internet access for communication home 2/ convenient location for tube travel (Kensington Olympia Station just a safe, 5 minute walk), 3/ exercise facility, and 4/ new and upgraded furnishings, we found this jewel of a hotel. Although not in the center of the "tourist district", we found this hotel to tremendously exceed our expectations. I would highly recommend! Catherine, the reservations manager was a delight to deal with, also. Phyllis Payne
You can do better
We stayed at the K West Hotel in February, 2003. It isn't centrally located in London, but you can take the Tube anywhere in no time. The Hotel itself is OK if you are more interested in image than in quality. It is very modern/contemporary, and they play Euro style techno junk over the speakers in the lobby/lounge area. All employees wear black and act as though you are beneath them. Starting to get the picture? Our room itself was along the same lines-nice to look at but lacking in real comfort. The bed was hard and uncomfortable enough to give me a backache, which I have never experienced with any other hotel bed in my life. The shower had a pane of glass that only covered half of the tub area, so we flooded the bathroom everytime we took a shower. But I guess it looks cool, so function doesn't matter. My suggestion-find a place that is more central. You will be better off.
K West, very nice hotel
It is a lovely hotel, the rooms are spacious the the beds were extremely comfortable. I liked the robes in the large bathroom and the cable tv and available DVD. It was in zone 2 section of London but not really inconvienent. The tube was about 1 1/2 blocks away. The staff was friendly and available and checked us in well before our 2 pm check in. I would stay here again
Excellent deluxe room, ignore the neighborhood
The hotel is located outside of central London in the Shepherd's Bush neighborhood -- sadly it is not a can't miss spot for the tourist -- this is working class London. There is a mall with a cinema close by as well as convenience stores and eateries. Even more positive, you are a short bus or tube ride away from Notting Hill.
The hotel was kind enough to upgrade me to a deluxe room from a standard room without charge. The deluxe room is wonderfully spacious with a large bathroom that allows you to stretch your limbs freely. The extra large king-size bed is a great pleasure after a long day of traversing central London. It all makes up for the location.
Loved the room
The rooms are amazing. We got the Deluxe room. It has a very comfortable bedroom, widescreen TV, and dvd. It really is a design hotel (notice the various colors on the ceiling of the hallway). Saw that this hotel was named in GQ's 100 Best Things in the world 2002. Having free internet access was a plus. Hotel is located close the tube stop, supermarket and restaurants.
While there are small signs that the hotel was recently refurbished, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel has the basic accoutrements of a luxury hotel, including bathrobes for guest use, hair dryer, electric pants press (great!)in room, stocked fridge, new aesthetically pleasing (modern) furniture, and GENUINELY comfortable mattress and bedding.
I REALLY LIKED the free use of the good-for-its-size gym downstairs, which had brand new equipment.
The hotel is a four-minute walk to the tube stop. It is in zone 2, so it is not in the heart of London, but it is conveniently located on the central line. Also convenient is the neighborhood, which includes a grocery (Safeway), pharmacy (Boots), and 24-hour minimart. There is also a chain bookstore and movie theater across from the tube stop entrance.
If I had any complaints, I would say no electrical outlet in the bathroom, but that is really stretching it. Look around for a great deal on the internet because they can be found.
K West Hotel
I spent 8 nights at the K West Hotel. It is very close to the Shepherd's Bush tube station (Central Line), about a 3 min walk. They were in the midst of changing the rooms from when it was Kensington.
For 7 nights we stayed in one of the rooms that had not been redecorated, but you couldn't tell! It was a spacious room, with an art deco theme. There was room for a desk, and a table with 2 chairs. We checked out for a few days to go to Dublin. When we returned, we were given one of the new rooms, which had a very comfortable comforter and pillows! It had the same spacious as the first room (room for a couch, coffee table and desk)
The staff were OK, the people at the front desk all seemed to be new. The guest relations person was very, very helpful in booking our tours and theater tickets.
Do not stay here!!!
we´ve stayed at the K-West hotel for only 2 nights. Thanks god. The staff is not very pleasant and helpful - i think they don´t know what "service" really means. i´ve asked them for the adress of an special restaurant. after 30 minutes, they gave me a call - no adress, only a telefone number of the restaurant. but this number wasn´t wright. so i called my friend in austria to look for the adress.
When you go for breakfast, the first thing you´ll see, is the garbage behind the buffett. DISGUSTING!! you must imagine - this is a four star hotel. ($ 200 per night)
by the way - rooms are ok and very spacious! but that´s the only good thing.
And at least - the k west hotel ist too far away from the city!

... save our legs. The tube is the subway and is very tiny - we kept saying CTague would feel a little claustrophobic in there! Also, the buses are the quintessential double decker red buses you see in London, which were fun to sight see from the 2nd story. Our first stop was the London Bridge and the Tower of London where the Crown Jewels are located. The buildings and architecture are so intricate, old, and beautiful. ...
