Comfotel Blu puts you just a 5-minute drive from Hammersmith Apollo and Westfield London Shopping Centre. Free perks include continental breakfast daily and WiFi. Also, Royal Albert Hall and Harrods are within a short drive.
Pros: Good location between Shepherd's Bush and Hammersmith tube stations (10-minute walk from either). Nice neighborhood with lots of cafes, pubs, newsagents, etc. Pleasant 20-minute walk to Kensington. Cons: The room was extremely cramped. The floorspace is just big enough to open a carry-on sized suitcase. Slight sulphur-y smell in the room. Little ventilation. Towels changed every other day. No new soap or shampoo after the first day. No telephone. Internet did not work. Staff unavailable at night or early in the morning. The coffee at breakfast is instant Nescafe only.
