K West Hotel & Spa
I like this hotel. I can’t say I can afford to stay here at their normal prices, but I do like the hotel. When I arrived I was greeted warmly and I kept thinking that part of the hotel looked like it sloped underground. The lobby was neat and efficient and I noticed plenty of free newspapers and magazine around. I had asked for a quiet room on the back of the hotel and a key car was produced. Then I started a very, very long walk down the longest hotel corridor I have ever seen. And it looked like it was underground. Halfway on my journey I encountered the strangest, but efficient, vending machine I have ever seen anywhere in the world. What was so special about the vending machine? In addition to your normal unhealthy snacks – it has some wonderful items. Like ice cold BEER! Oh yes! I am halfway to my room and loving this place already. Did I mention they had wine as well?
My room was as far back into the hotel as you could get. The great part was that the corridor had thick carpet and this absorbed any noise. Not that I ever heard any. My room was quiet good. It had a window letting me know I was on the ground floor actually. I had a very comfortable feeling mattress. OK – great start. My room had a good TV, mini-bar (empty, but you just ring room service), telephone, plenty of lights and a few other nice bits. My desk was functional and they do have Wi-Fi (for a fee).
My closet was functional and had a steam iron/board, safe, robe (excellent), and hairdryer.
The bathroom was excellent. Good bathtub and shower with some good toiletries. Nice big fluffy towels as well. The really nice touch was little stickers holding the toilet paper together. They were little sheep. Kinda of strange, yet cool.
I had a nice tea/coffee facility for that morning wake-up and even had a good variety as well.
The best thing about K West was the fact that I had a most wonderful night’s sleep. Great bed, quiet hotel and great staff.
They have a neat bar, called the K Lounge. K Lounge has a great selection of drinks, but also very good bar food. And they do serve food into the early hours of the morning. Get in there. The night I was there they had a good DJ. And the bar/lobby is far removed from the bedrooms so you don’t hear the music.
All in all a great hotel. Highly recommended by me.

The Kanteen Restaurant is centred around (gourmet) pasta, burgers, salads and pizza variety with a steak or chicken dish. It looked good to me.
K Lounge Bar has an excellent lunch menu and at night does an impressive ‘snack’ menu that is as good as any restaurant. They serve up great food until the bar closes.

Directions: TUBE STATIONS:
Shepherd's Bush (Central Line)
Shepherd's Bush Market (Circle, Hammersmith & City Lines)
I wasn't very happy at first when I got the K West Hotel when I bid on Priceline, the closest tube is Shepard's Bush which I thought to be a bit outside the zone I was bidding on. I was probably bidding a bit too early as this stay was after the cruise so I was bidding at least a couple of weeks out. I finally got it at $105US +tax. It ended up not being too bad of a location, just a couple of stops from Notting Hill Gate where we spent Saturday morning and only about 45 minutes from Heathrow where we went on Sunday.
In the immediate area there was a Westfield shopping mall with a whole string of restaurants including a Wagamama, one of Jamie Oliver's restaurants and a branch of the Real Greek. I also spotted a Nando's and there were a lot of little takeaway kebab shops and fast food. There's a Morrison's supermarket on the main street as well as a couple of everything for a £ shops.
Shepard's Bush (central line) is the closest tube station but for our trip to Heathrow they suggested going to Shepard's Bush Market (Circle and Hammersmith/City lines) for an easier connection, it was 5-10 minutes up the street. To get to the hotel from Shepard's Bush station, you cross over the busy street in front of the station and then walk down a ramp and take the right branch at the bottom which is Richmond Way, the hotel is a couple minutes walk from there. The street is pretty deserted at night but I didn't have any concerns as I was traveling with my husband.
Unique Quality: I'd have to debate Priceline's 4* designation for this hotel, the carpet is pretty worn and stained throughout the hotel, our shower had a bit of mold in it. But otherwise, it was fine. The room had everything you'd expect-a room safe, a small refrigerator, ironing board, TV hair dryer.
The shower was good and there were nice big fluffy towels. Shampoo, conditioner and bath gel as well as bar soap.
We didn't try getting wifi in our room but there were a few computer terminals in the lobby where we checked our email. We also didn't really check out the spa services, I assume everything was extra.
Checkin and checkout were fine, we arrived before the normal checkin time and had no problem getting a room right away. Breakfast is extra
Directions: Closest tube: Shepards Bush (central line), Shepards Bush Market is 5-10 minutes on foot (Hammersmith & City, Circle Line)
Great Modern Hotel
I've stayed here at least 3 times. Once I saw Matthew McConaughey and Penelope Cruz there when they were filming Sahara. The rooms are large for London. It's located near Shepard's Bush tube stop on the Central Line which means a good 20 min. to all central London locations. There are always deals online for breakfasts or weekend getaways. A wonderful place to call home for a few days.

K West Hotel
Right on Shepherd's Bush, which the BBC used to dominate, and the hang out of media, film and music types, it has a good range of rooms from good value basic to high end deluxe suites with enormous plasma screens. It's a little out of town, but it's right next to Shepherd's Bush station, and only a few minutes from the city center. It's tucked away in a quiet side street, so makes for a perfect night sleep... if not for the passing trains... and rowdy media stars. Oh well, nothing can be completely quiet in London.
The location is also great for restaurants and nightlife, which thrives around Shepherd's Bush and nearby Holland Park. The rooms are good value, and the included breakfast is excellent. Some of the best croissants and fresh bread rolls I've ever eaten. It also has a highly recommended restaurant, called the Kanteen, which serves up food good enough to draw in the locals as well as the hotel guests.
The only down side is that you might, like I did, get woken up at 4am by drunken music stars coming home from a night on the town...
Unique Quality: Media hang-out.
K West Hotel London - Not for the first timers
I dug it but I have been to London a few times and did'nt mind the fact that it is in Shepards Bush, and a zillion cab dollars away from the center of town. Neat to see the way the real people live. And the sauna at this place was fab!
The hall way was 2 block long to our rooms. It took 10 min to walk from the front door to our rooms. Bazaar.
Attracting guest from all walks of life, we are particularly popular for the music, film and media industries. It is one of the most stylish places to relax and unwind in London.

London's Tragically hip Hotel
Beautiful. Awesome. Hotel.
Decorated very modernistic, I was given the players club room. It was comfortable, very clean, my only problem was the funky shower door which looked good, got water everywhere.
Oh yeah, free internet access in the hotel was great. And the continential breakfast was probably one of the better meals I had in London.
Definately a good hotel for the stylish, young and trendy :) In Shepards bush, which isn't too bad to get to with the tube.
Stayed at the K-West in...
Stayed at the K-West in Shepard's Bush... nice hotel. They are doing quite a bit of remodeling but the rooms that are done are quite nice (try to get something on the 3rd floor). The staff is very helpful and easy to work with. Only complaint was with the bar when the drink prices doubled overnight.
