The best hotels in Hammersmith

Check out our pick of Hammersmith's best hotels, from the chic to the cheap and cheerful

By Time Out editors

The best hotels in Hammersmith enable visitors to fully explore this great part of London. Whether you’re in the area for the music and comedy at Eventim Apollo, the drama at the Lyric, or the food at the River Café, Hammersmith has a lot to offer visitors; not least easy access to central London and hotels that are way cheaper than anything you’ll find in W1. While you’re in W6, check out the pub-lined riverside; historic hostelries include the atmospheric Dove (owned by Fuller’s since 1796) and the Old Ship, which has two terraces and a lawn overlooking the Thames. For more wholesome fare, the Gate - one of the best vegetarian restaurants in London - is one minute’s walk from the Apollo. So, if you're looking for somewhere to stay, check out our list of the best hotels in Hammersmith and start exploring.

Best Western Plus Seraphine Hammersmith Hotel

Hotels Hammersmith

Effort has gone into making this place feel more homely than the average modern chain hotel, and there are bright pops of colour in the spotless rooms and public areas. A bar serves drinks and snacks until late, plus King Street has plenty of restaurants offering a range of cuisines. Breakfast is continental only, but on the plus side, there’s free internet access.

The Brook Green Hotel


A Young’s pub with 17 chi-chi bedrooms and a cocktail bar in the basement. Nicely styled rooms come with TVs, digital radios and air-con; breakfast and Wi-Fi is included in the room rate. Brook Green is a leafy enclave just north of Hammersmith tube, so this is a good choice if you don’t fancy the hubbub around Hammersmith gyratory.


Holiday Inn Express London-Hammersmith

Hotels Hammersmith

A price-conscious option in a handy location on King Street, where the room rate includes a buffet breakfast and Wi-Fi. The bedrooms were refurbished in 2016: they’re on the small side, but are neat, light-filled and well-equipped (TVs, irons, air-con); the seven accessible rooms are more spacious. Drivers should note that on-site parking is available.

Novotel London West

Hotels Hammersmith

A modern block with a bar, two restaurants and a fitness centre, Novotel London West couldn’t be more central to the action – it’s a short hop from Hammersmith tube and the Apollo. Rooms are bland but well-equipped, and the hotel is flexible enough to deal with gig-goers, families or business people. Bring your dog for an additional £15 a day.


Dorsett Shepherds Bush

Hotels Luxury hotels Shepherd’s Bush

Just north of Hammersmith, this strikingly modern hotel overlooks Shepherd’s Bush Green and offers four-star quality at very reasonable rates (and Wi-Fi is free). Housed in what was once the Pavilion cinema, the hotel has 317 rooms decorated in contemporary, Chinese-influenced style. As well as a small spa and a gym, there’s a restaurant and a cocktail bar. Westfield shopping centre is close by, and it’s a short journey to the theatre and music venues of Hammersmith.

Safestay Holland Park

Hotels Hostels Holland Park

A 368-bed hostel, surrounded by bucolic Holland Park, just minutes from Hammersmith. Accommodation comes in the form of dormitories, plus a few private and family rooms, all decorated in a light, modern fashion. Amenities include a 24-hour front desk, a lounge, a games room and luggage storage.


K West Hotel & Spa

Hotels Boutique hotels Shepherd’s Bush

K West in Shepherd’s Bush is a great place stay if you fancy a bit of pampering; the hotel spa (from £10 – free if you book a spa treatment), means you can relax in a hydrotherapy pool or book a facial or manicure. The design here is super-modern, and the smart, plushly upholstered rooms are nicely unfussy, with a muted colour palette. The Westfield shopping complex is just a short walk away.


Hotels Earl’s Court

The four-star Rockwell has 40 elegant rooms, all fully equipped, with welcome touches such as merino wool blankets and Sky Sports channels; some have outdoor terraces. The hotel restaurant does a nice line in cocktails, and there’s a large south-facing garden too. The Earl’s Court location is a short tube ride from Hammersmith.


High Road House

Hotels Chiswick

If you want a little bit of Soho House chic within easy striking distance of Hammersmith, plump for High Road House in Chiswick. Rooms are very comfortable, decorated in an appealing mix of Shaker-meets-Scandi, with Cowshed toiletries and free Wi-Fi. The ground floor brasserie is deservedly popular.

St Paul’s Hotel

A boutique hotel in what was an imposing Victorian school, St Paul’s retains many period features and has a red-brick-gothic charm. Just five minutes’ walk from Hammersmith tube, it’s also handy for Olympia Exhibition Centre. There’s a restaurant (Sunday roasts are a speciality), complimentary Wi-Fi and all the mod cons you’d expect in a four-star establishment.
