Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 228 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by good value for money Stayed 3 nights at hotel was very clean very nice friendly staff nice breakfast. clean room. very expensive parking for guest staying at hotel thought would be little cheaper.internet good but need log in every time. family room was disabled room and only one double bed with sofa bed for 2 kids. All the lights look deem .even when all lights on.room was connected to next room but there door was blocked so you feel that someone may open door.overall not bad price for almost at central of london close tube station and plenty shops for shopping and lots restaurants.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location when visiting London When travelling from the West Country the location of this hotel is great. Easy access to West End. Breakfast offered far more than the average Continental breakfast. The use of a microwave to heat up food in the evening with plenty of free beverages for use in the room saved money and the ice machine and good air conditioning were fantastic during the hot spell. Being able to leave luggage in a secure room for collection later on checkout day meant there was no need to struggle when making the most of the last day.; August 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Feel at home Stayed for the first time for a longer period in London with my family. I consider this hotel a very nice play to stay, even for a longer period. Rooms are somewhat small, but will do. Matresses a bit to hard to our likings, could do with more padding since matress springs are felt. Very clean and tidy room, very quiet. Duvets are too heavy. Breakfast is ok, good quality, choice is limited but fair enough. What makes this hotel stand out is the staff: very friendly, responsive and caring. They really made us feel at home. Recommended!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 4 Tage london zum Hammerpreis Das Hotel hat uns super gut gefallen, nur der Preis für das Doppelzimmer meiner Kinder war einfach unverschämt. July 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly helpful staff and convenient location Convenient location close to Hammersmith tube. and the M4. Friendly helpful staff and a clean comfortable room. Disappointingly my room on the first floor was noisy and staff were very slow to clear tables at breakfast. July 28, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nickel and Dime My wife and I stayed here for three nights well on vacation in London; the hotel is nice good size and has a great breakfast. However when it came time to check out we were changed 7£ for making a 14 min local call to book a cab to the airport the next morning. First hotel I have ever been changed in to make a local call and very disappointed that the charge was more than I would have paid if we used our Canadian cell phones. When I ask about this at checkout we were informed that was the rate we agreed to. Overall it’s a shame as we had been staying at IHG hotels for over 2 weeks prior in various locations throughout Europe and this was the only one that ever nickel and dimed us for services.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great weekend Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Hammersmith for two nights, great location, good room, comfy bed, very clean, varied choice breakfast, very pleasant staff, great service, excellent value for money. July 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect place to drop your bags and go The rooms was clean and we found the hotel staff extremely attentive. The rooms were exactly what you would expect--clean and big enough to fit our stuff. There was plenty of variety for breakfast for the entire family and ate there every morning of our stay. It was the perfect place for us to be able to unload our luggage and go out and see the city then come home for a good nights sleep. July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Overall stay Many thanks to the staff We only stayed for one night but everything was fantastic will defiantly visit again July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay in London Comfortable room (small by US standards but very adequate, especially for London); very nice breakfast choices, staff was exceptional. We chose this location because of closeness to Heathrow - we took the Picadilly line to/from the airport and didn't have to buy an expensive ticket on the Heathrow Express. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to Hammersmith tube station and we took the Picadilly line almost everywhere we wanted to go. July 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service Very enjoyable, friendly and efficient staff members. It is located very near the hammersmith tube station. There was a great choice with breakfast for the mornings. July 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent service by friendly and efficient staff I always feel welcome at this hotel. Staff remember my name and the room I prefer to stay in,which makes me feel relaxed and valued. Every one of the staff is first class at their job,but particular mention must go to Umar,Kittie,and the rest of the reception team. July 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Base for London Last weekend was my fourth visit to this hotel. Location is great for access to central London, Hammersmith is lively and has loads of places to eat out. Staff are friendly and helpful. July 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice property for vacation stay My two friends and I stayed at this hotel while vacationing in Barcelona. It was clean, the bed was confortable and the staff made our stay relaxing and enjoyable. It is very close to the a lot of restaurants, transportation, has a nice bar with pool table and a nice lobby. Would recommend this hotel for a stay in Barcelona. July 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nice location and good service this hotel is nicely located and good to stay with family. breakfast choices are same everyday so needs to be rotated. July 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Customer Service Morgan and the staff I spoke to were so helpful, and welcoming. It made my stay that extra bit special. It was more personal than what you would normally receive from a 'Chain' Hotel. July 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel in Downtown London Easy to get to from Heathrow, comfortable room, good breakfast, lots of restaurants in the neighborhood for dinner, also a movie. Convenient shopping. AC made the nights very comfortable. Located a few underground stops to the places we wanted to visit in London. the room was somewhat crowded for 3, but we all slept well. We would stay here again. July 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service I've been visiting the hotel for many years, it has great staff and the service is first rate. It has good standards and continues to keep them. I'll be back!! July 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly staff Staff in all categories are attentive and friendly June 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by REPETIREMOS Las habitaciones son amplias y cómodas, el baño limpio y con lo imprescindible. El personal del hotel es amable. El desayuno buffet no es muy variado. Dispone de wifi gratuita en todo el hotel. Está a siete minutos andando de la estación de metro. En la calle hay numerosas tiendas, restaurantes y bares. La relación calidad-precio es aceptable teniendo en cuenta que hablamos de Londres. June 28, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service Dining room staff at breakfast were really nice and friendly June 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Handy for all areas This hotel is very close to Hammersmith station on the Piccadily line so easy to access all areas. Short walk to Hammersmith apollo so handy for concerts and shows. Lovely clean hotel with good facilities for what I was looking for. Clean comfortable rooms, nice breakfast and very pleasant staff. shops and eateries nearby. Good hotel for leisure stay. Our room was on the small side when sofa bed was out as there was little room for 3 people to move about. N o problem really as we folded bed up when we were in the room. Would stay again. June 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by You would be hard pressed to do better for your money My daughter and I had a wonderful 10 day stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Hammersmith. The staff are all friendly, helpful and efficient and from the first moment we felt welcome and right at home. Our twin bedroom was comfortable and spacious (by London standards) and the comfy beds and pillows allowed us to both sleep really well. The bathroom was also quite spacious with a decent sized shower. My only criticism was the lack of packing space in the bedroom with only a few shelves and no drawers in which to unpack and a very small area for hanging anything. Tea coffee facilities in room, along with an air conditioner, or heater for cold months, made for very comfortable living. TV channels not great, but we didn't spend a lot of time with TV on, so maybe that's unfair. The hotel is about a 7 minute walk from Hammersmith Underground, so very convenient for travelling anywhere in London. Would definitely stay again. June 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ANOTHER GREAT STAY WITH HOLIDAY INNS Just another Great Stay with holiday inns. Great beds wow pillows, friendly staff, great service. EVERYTHING I HAVE ALWAYS ENJOYED WITH ALL MY STAYS AT HOLIDAY INN. June 24, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Decent hotel as an budget hotel, I would expect it come with self help washing machine, but this is not available, instead, the staff suggest you to use their laundry service which the price is equivalent (if not more expensive) to a 5-star hotel. June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great position Close to Hammersmith tube with direct link to Heathrow. Costs about £2 compared to £60 in a taxi. Very comfortable beds, which are king single, rather than single in the twin rooms. Staff very friendly and helpful.. June 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Godd location and friendly welcome This hotel is easy to reach from Hammersmith Bus station. It has clean and comfortable rooms and a varied breakfast in the morning..All staff are friendly and welcoming June 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable Hotel, Great Location The room was quite comfortable, the AC made sleeping a pleasure on some quite warm days and the breakfast was quite good wih a reasonable variety of foods. The staff was fine. Thew location is very good for getting into downtown London and as the Hammersmith tube station is a handicapped accessible one bringing luggage from the track platform to the street was easy. There are many restaurants in close vicinity. The only problem with the stay was a toilet that didn't remove solid waste well, but the staff seemed to fix the difficulty on the second day.
