“Value for money”
Reviewed 19 December 2012

This wasn't the most luxurious hotel room I have ever stayed in but it was perfectly functional, and very good value for money. Only a few minutes form the nearest tube, plenty of places around to eat and drink, friendly guy on reception, plenty of tea and coffee in the room, a simple but adequate breakfast included - brilliant value by London's usual rip-off standards. I'll use this place again.

Only stayed here for one night, but the room was perfect, comfy double bed, TV, fridge, bathroom. Extremely clean and cosy. I was down in the basement next to the breakfast room which did get a little noisy as other guests came for breakfast, but I guess it woke me in time to get breakfast!

Breakfast is freshly cooked for you, fried or scrambled eggs on toast, cereal, yoghurt, tea, coffee and juice.

Very polite staff, most helpful. The hotel is about 10 minutes from Hammersmith Tube Station and 15 minutes from Hammersmith Apollo.

Hotel offers free wifi as well.

Shame me and my friends only stayed one night here...... if I was in London longer, I would choose this hotel again, there are not many like this in London for the price I paid - excellent value!

Me and my friend stayed here overnight whilst going to watch a concert in the HMV Apollo. My friend booked the hotel so I didn't have a clue what to expect when arriving. The place was awful!! We were on the top floor and we didn't even get offered help to carry our cases up the many flights of stairs. Our room was a 'double room' .. double the size of a box. It was tiny!!! Our mirror was cracked, rubbish from previous guests, cobwebs hanging from ceilings. We weren't happy at all. Then the bathroom, the shower (glass) door was hanging off!! We couldn't even access the shower and we also found someones false nail one our window sill. Disgusting! There was only one plug socket in our room so we couldn't turn on the fridge or the tv as we needed to charge our phones. I went down to complain to the man at the desk who was more concerned with eating his burger than anything else. He finally came up to fix the shower door but as soon as he stood out the room it fell off again. He said not to move it, which is hard when it's a sliding door!! We used the shower reluctantly with the door open, only to find we had no hot water! Our bedroom door wouldn't lock so felt unsafe sleeping, not like we could with our room being right next to a busy road with police sirens every 5 mins and the house next door being renovated. Would never recommend this hotel to anyone esp. room 34!!! No manners, no hygiene and for £78 a night isn't worth it. Wouldn't even pay £20 for this place. Disgusting! Cannot say it enough.

We were booked in for 2 nights in a Triple Ensuite Room. Everything was perfect, Fridge and Wifi Free. The hotel is newly refurbished. Good Location, close to the Metro underground stations, Olympia exhibition halls and westfield shopping centre. We will recommend to our friends.

Room Tip: All rooms are newly refurbished, but a room at the back of the hotel is less noisy.

We stayed at the Golden Strand Hotel on business. Its very close to Olympia, 10 mins walk. It really is not the Ritz but it was comfortable. The room as warm and clean. A bit dated and could have done with a lick of paint, and only a blanket on the bed, which was not big enough for two without one getting a cold back! The hotel had free wifi and tea and coffee and a fridge in the room. The shower was also hot for us. The staff were plesent and friendly. Breakfast consisted of cornflakes or weetabix, orange juice, tea or coffee, yoguhurt, fried or scrambled eggs on toast. Not a continental or full english. Overall it was ok as somewhere to sleep and wash and we would stay again.

this hotel is conveniently located,easy access to public transport, also shopping area, grocery, laundry mart, just outside the hotel is a bus stop. Hammersmith bus station is walking distance.There is a cinema on King street which is not far away. There is a one pound store at King's Mall, which is really good bargain. And for caribbean ppl a roti shop at Brent cross, bus 266 takes you there. The hotel room is small, but comfortable, the toilet is rather clean. there is a small neat clothes cupboard. a small fridge, TV, internet service which is free.Maid service is good, no elevator but the hotel manager assist with your baggage up and down stairs. The staff is rather friendly, and you are treated as family. The only item missing to complete the room is a microwave, which can fit on the fridge as the room is very small. But we had free use of the microwave in the main kitchen, which was good. The manager is very helpful in everything. You can buy a 7 days unlimited oyster card for about 27.30 pounds and top up after, with this card you can travel on both bus and tube. I stayed 22 days and it was great.

Room Tip: my room was situated at the back, but i don't think you will have a problem with one at the fron...

We stayed at the Golden Strand for 6 nights, 3 of those where during the heat wave in London at the end of June 2011. The room was on the top floor, overlooking the street. You will be happy to know that the police station and fire stations are down the block... How do I know? Because we could hear the sirens all night long as they drove past our hotel. BTW, there is no elevator so I do not think this is a good place for grampa if you know what I mean...

Room was small (if you compare to American Hotels). We had 4 people with us, the shower was clogged for 2 days and they finally fixed it. We had to use the downstairs "common" bathroom in the mean time. The bathroom is small, and the door would only open half way because it hit a bed.

Now if you are the type that travels and likes to stay in your hotel all day long this is not the place for you, but if you need a place to crash after a long day of sight seeing then this is probably okay for you.

The Hammersmith Tube station is about 10 minutes walk, but why walk when you can take the 72, 220, 283, 295 bus routes that take you directly to the tube station (Bus stops almost in front of hotel coming from Hammersmith tube, and at the park going towards it)... Going north a few blocks we have the Westfield mall and Shepherds Bush Road Tube stop, a McDonalds, casino, a few clubs, and a bunch of restaurants. There is also a chinese take out place right across the street from the hotel, not bad for late nights, but you need to go to the Kebab Machine which is like 4 doors down... Or you can walk north about 3 blocks and there is another chinese take out, I liked that one better. Post office is across from hotel also and in the small alley way between the chinese place and the kebab machine we have a TESCO supermarket where you can get what ever you want (yeah you have to walk down the alley).

Breakfast wasn't great but wasn't bad either. They had tea, juice, water, milk, yogurts, and cereal. Breakfast is mainly toast with scrambled eggs. Hey, its free so load up.

Like many others I booked at the Golden strand but was taken down the street to another hotel... It's called the Saba Hotel... I guess I lucked out because breakfast was at Saba hotel. Wifi kinda sucked, we had to sit in the stairs a few nights to get any reception.

ALSO, if you are going to take a shower do it VERY early in the morning or late at night... If you plan on taking a shower between 7-8am plan on not having water if you are on the top floors. We lost our water while taking a shower during those times...

My "American" wife rates this place a 1, but I have been over seas a few times so I think it was pretty good.
