    Historical Traveler Reviews K West Hotel & Spa London

    Great Visit!!

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Enjoyable stay

    from

    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

    from

    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!!!

    from

    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!

    ... Pancras station, I had about 7 hours to kill before my Airbnb host would be home from work, so I took my bags to an overpriced baggage check, bought an overpriced snack, and set about getting my overpriced Oyster card. (While I want to be accurate, but don't want to document my whole time in London complaining about prices, let's just imagine for the rest of my time here that there's an invisible "overpriced" prefacing every noun, OK?) Without a plan, I jumped on the city line ...

    I bet you didn't know that in 1381, townspeople were mad at the king. They went to the castle for a protest and found the gates unlocked. They ran in and didn't find the king. They did, however, find ...

    ... Along the way we passed the National Portrait Gallery, which was open until 21:00 on Thursdays and Fridays. Seizing the opportunity to go to an art gallery in London I haven't yet visited, we went in.

    Apparently the art gallery has tried to turn Open Late Thursdays and Fridays into a big thing. They had a bar at the entrance where you could buy wine or other drinks to enjoy in the galleries. They even had a dj - albeit the most bored looking dj I've ever seen in my life. ...

    The ceremony was really great with lots of Queens Guards walking and on horse back. We saw Prince Charles, Camilla, and the Queen and the Duke.

    We then went back to Regent st to get something to eat and stroll through the shops. Back to Hamleys, Hamish persistence has paid off.... "you can only get the magic board at Hamleys, ...

    ... and now we have to say goodbye. 3 months of being joined at the hip and now we need to cut the cord. This is going to be harder than I thought. Who knew we would grow to be so connected. Sitting on the same bench, that we did 3 months ago when we just started our journey was the most surreal feeling in the world. I couldn't believe it, neither could Leandra. Films of our trip played in my mind, the good, the bad, the funny, the horrid, the amazing and the scary moments. They were ...
