Hammersmith and Fulham are full of great attractions. Football enthusiasts can scout out Stamford Bridge stadium, home of Chelsea FC, music lovers can check out the Shepherd’s Bush Empire and shopaholics can indulge at the Westfield London megamall in White City, while those with an appreciation for the past can visit Fulham Palace, historic residence of the Bishop of London and modern archaeological museum. Apart from all of this, Hammersmith and Fulham plays host to an assortment of brilliant boutique hotels that are ideal for anyone visiting London.
Housed in a beautiful redbrick schoolhouse building built in 1884, St. Paul’s London, adorned with flowers, is just about as picturesque as a hotel can get.

Just a few minutes walk from Shepherd’s Bush station and Westfield London, K West Hotel & Spa is ideal shopaholics who want to spend time and money on some invaluable retail therapy. The hotel regularly hosts A-list celebrities who love to shop till they drop before heading back to unwind in the tranquil hotel spa.
Experience London in the most British of ways at this elegantly charming gastropub. Originally dating back to 1729, The Malt House is situated within a cobbled square just five minutes’ walk from Fulham Broadway Station. The rooms upstairs boast a fashionably stylish bright décor. Downstairs, mismatched chairs and Chesterfield sofas create a trendy Shoreditch vibe in the bar.
Perfectly placed for guests who desire serene views of the River Thames, The Chelsea Harbour Hotel overlooks its eponymous harbour. The hotel’s luxuriously stylish suites sit just a few minutes walk from Imperial Wharf station and Chelsea Harbour Pier, where you can catch a riverboat service and enjoy stress-free travel into the heart of the city.
Extending throughout four lovely Victorian townhouses, original features intact yet refurbished, The W14 Hotel Kensington is equidistant from Barons Court and West Kensington stations. Despite being a stylish pad in an affluent area, this place is more affordable than other hotels of a similar caliber in Hammersmith and Fulham.
Another trendy gastropub, the Brook Green Hotel is the namesake of the quaint leafy green space it overlooks – ideal for a relaxed evening stroll before a nightcap in the basement cocktail bar. Anybody fussy about the beer they drink can rest assured they’ll find craft beer and cask ales served here, alongside scrumptious seasonal British fare.
Just four minutes’ walk away from Ravenscourt Park station and ten minutes from Hammersmith, Flynn’s Pub & Townhouse is a stylishly traditional watering hole-cum-guesthouse. The Elizabethan-style exterior houses a pub with elegantly exposed brickwork and equally fashionable wooden beams, topped with a handful of beautifully simple bedrooms that are remarkably affordable.
