Reviewed 16 October 2007

I loved this hotel. It was in a convenient location. Literally a 3 minute walk to the tube station. There are also a few little shopping centers, with some good food. Definitely recommend eating at Orsini Ristorante right across from the tube station. Had really good Lasagne.

With our room we got breakfast every morning. The breakfast at the hotel had lots of options. They served a full english breakfast, also croissants, crepes, breads, fruits, eggs, variety of juices, etc. Very yummy.

The room was very clean, a good size. Came with a safe (very useful). Only complaints are when we were there the TV was having problems, and the shower is weird. The shower screen door only went to the halfway point. So It doesnt cover the entire bathtub area. It was kinda odd.

The people were very friendly and helpful. Room service was yummy, not the biggest variety but the options available were good.

I wont's stay here again! I stayed there last month for a business trip I was glad that the company payed for the room and not myself. The hotel is very expensive for what you get. Although London is expensive there are better hotels for this price (payed 150 pounds, excluding breakfast). Rooms are small, but ok. The building itsels looks more like a sleeping factory...

We stayed here two nights at the beginning of a two week Globus tour - myself, my husband and 12 year old daughter.

Our room was nothing fancy but comfortable and spacious enough for the three of us. My daughter slept on a sofabed.

The location is within easy walking distance of the town of Hammersmith and the tube station. We had no trouble getting in and out of London.

The buffet breakfast was very nice with lots of choices. We chose to eat our other meals outside of the hotel.

This is the second time we've stayed here. If you just need somewhere to stay over in Hammersmith for a night, it's fine, otherwise not much to recommend it. It's a huge characterless place, with miles to walk from the lift to our room. It was quiet on the fifth floor.

The room was a tad shabby. Nominally a no smoking room, it smelt of cigarettes. The room was too warm when we arrived, but we left the windows open when we went out then it was fine. The bed was a bit springy (and not pocket-sprung). It was either badly made up, or the undersheet was the wrong size as when I lifted the pillow, it was just matress underneath. Sheets were a bit itchy. One lightbulb was missing by the bed. The internet didn't work. The TV was very badly tuned. The bathroom was fine, and clean. Bathroom door was a fight to get out.

We arrived and left during the tube strikes. The concierge said he had ordered us a taxi, but it sounded later like he hadn't at all until we asked again. I would allow plenty of time if relying on getting a cab from the hotel.

2 adults, 2 kids (Ages 3+8) stayed here early Aug 07.
Very nice hotel. Staff were excellent, always stopping to say hello.
Breakfast was great, as mentioned by other TA's.
Room size good.
Booked via a different agent, but good prices available directly via novotel website also.
Location is good, very close to Hammersmith tube station+bus station.
Some tips - Tesco's in the shopping centre over the tube station is handy for quick purchases. This same shopping centre also has a Disney shop.
The bus stop is actually about 100 metres from the front door of the hotel, whereas to actually get to the tube platform, it's about 400 metres.
From this bus stop, you can go directly to Harrods, Knightsbridge, Picadilly circus, and Waterloo. We used this off-peak, and I reckon it was quicker then using the tube. You also got to see lots of parts of London, you might otherwise miss. Finally, cheaper then the tube.
Close to BBC television centre - check out my review of same at http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g186338-d257586-r8408152-BBC_Television_Centre-London_England.html

We (a family of five) booked two rooms at the Novotel London West in July, 2007. The hotel staff were kind when checking in, and were quick to get us in to our rooms (which weren't together, but I guess they were very full and couldn't accommodate for that).

I had been warned about the size of european hotel rooms, but was not disappointed with these rooms. There is enough space for suitcases and a folded-out sofa bed - even though we were fitting three teenage girls into the one room!

My fondest memory of our stay at this hotel was the buffet breakfast, and I would recommend that to any future guests, it's wonderful.

This hotel is a very short walk from Hammersmith metro station. I had no problems with it being a little further out from very-central London because the public transport was so convenient. London is such a big city, you are bound to need to catch the tube to get around anyway, wherever you stay.
