Hotel 65

Recent guest reviews

I am not sure how this hotel got 3 stars. Our room had no table or chairs, no wardrobe, no phone. Only beds and an old scratched dresser. Carpet smells. Dust everywhere. The dresser drawers were dirty. Walls needed paint badly. Afrer the first night my kid woke up with bedbug bites all over his neck and back. And after I killed a huge one my my bed I had to run. Staff were ok. In the lobby (building 45) there is no light. Good luck leaving in the dark with your luggage. Bathrooms are tiny but we were ok. Breakfast was so so - orange juice, cereal, yoghurt, toast, coffee. The only good thing about this hotel location - there are buses and metro. I would not recommend this hotel. There are nicer hotels nearby at a similar price.

At first I was afraid that this hotel isn't good enough to .. But when I arrived there I realized that it's a good one .. Especially the value of money

The hotel was located only a 5-6 minute walk to a couple of different underground stations. The rooms were clean and the staff very friendly. I would recommend it to the budget minded traveler.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel 65 in Hammersmith, England. The staff was incredible and the free breakfast each morning was great. The location was very convenient with a short, easy walk to the Tube station, many different places to eat, and several parks. We would definitely stay in this hotel again.

I would never stay here again. Found corn on the bathroom floor upon arrival, toilet barely flushed, toilet paper holder was coming off the wall. Walls are paper thin so it's very noisy, no phones in the room, only given a bar of soap and towel. There was tea & coffee but after looking at the state of the room I would never touch it. Rooms are very small. There are no "Do Not Disturb" signs to hang on the door so I was awoken each day by cleaning staff trying to enter my room which had no additional lock from the inside to prevent this. The front desk was located down the street from my room as there are several buildings owned by the hotel. Promised free wi-fi that never worked through out my stay. No appearance of a fire exit other than the entrance to the building which is a narrow walk-up with no lift. I was just grateful for the small tv and nothing crawling on me during my stay.

I booked this hotel for 6 nights in London for couple of reasons: relatively close to the Apollo Hammersmith Theater where I was seeing Queen + Adam Lambert and it was the only property which could guarantee two separate beds for me and my niece. What a surprise when we got to the hotel! Since this is several buildings under same management, we were in the 61 building, room 10 which is on the third floor. Typical old British building, with tiny but steep stairs and no elevator. Having been to the UK on several prior occasions, I was ready to take my suitcases up 3 flights. No problem there. The room was EXTRA large, with a separate sitting area + coffee table, a kitchenette with a sink, refrigerator, microwave and a hot water cattle for coffee/tea, which were also supplied. Bathroom was rather decent size and recently renovated. Everything was spotless, fresh and clean. The coffee table and arm chairs were clearly older but for a 3 Star hotel - I did not expect that. We just arrived from Paris where.. I won't be going back to. So this was all very pleasant. During our stay, our room was always wonderfully made up and fresh new towels were supplied on a daily basis. The reception personnel was always very pleasant and accommodating with suggestions and advice and even allowed me to take some hot chocolate powder from the kitchen up to the room when my niece got sick (it was raining and cold in the middle of July 2012). Did I mention that their internet line was pretty good in the room and I was able to keep in touch with friends, family and work back in LA? We only used the breakfast twice (it was included in the room price) due to our wish to either sleep in or explore the local coffee shops, but it is rather decent and frankly, you don't need more than toast, jams, selection of cereals, hot/cold drinks and cheese. For the times we used it it was perfect. In short - this was the best travel experience I've had in recent travel history! Even though the hotel is in Hammersmith (not a very central location, zone 2 on the buses/tube), should I be going back to London, if I can get a decent deal on the hotel I will be back. This is how much I liked it. To the nice Polish or Czeck (??) cleaning ladies and to the nice young lady and the guy at the reception: THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH! You made our stay a pure pleasure! I don't know about the other rooms, I know the rest were much smaller than ours but if you can do it, get 61-10. You won't be disappointed. For those complaining that sometimes you can hear the street traffic: I live in Hollywood, in L.A. If you complain from the nightly street traffic on Shepherd Bush Rd. I am sorry you live in a cave up in the mountains. This is London city - enjoy it!

The place is really a bunch of townhouses converted into single room hospitality services. More like student hostels. The room was tiny. No room for luggage, coats (hanger above the bed). Shower was so small had to shut off water and open the door to wash my feet. Staff was friendly and relative to London prices the cost was OK.

I checked my heavy bag at Heathrow and easily walked the ten minutes from the Hammersmith tube station to the hotel. I was bumped from my earlier flight from Paris, so arrived late at the hotel to a smelly single room, with no window to open.. But despite the "fully booked" sign on the front door, the receptionist found me a double room, which was fine other than having no closet, with the clothes rack hanging over the other half of the double bed. Breakfast was simple but sufficient. Altogether, a good value for the price.

This hotel would have received a higher rating until I checked out. Upon arriving at my next destination where I found I had left an item of clothing behind the bathroom door. Called numerous times always getting the run-around and being told they would get back to me. NEVER HAPPENED. Beware of leaving anything behind.

As a student on a budget the Hotel 65 met my needs perfectly. The staff did everything possible to meet my needs & make me comfortable. They were friendly, courteous, & helpful with everything from room issues to getting directions to local sites. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed at hotel for a three nights; clean, friendly staff, free breakfast, free internet access in the hallway. Rooms are small, but clean. I would recommend this hotel for young travelers, with restricted budget.

Hotel looked it had just undergone some renovation and its general appearance was very good. Considering the Hotel was on a busy road, it was quiet in the hotel and I was able to get a really good night's sleep. Main problem - the internet did not work all the time I was there. The staff apologized for this and were generally friendly and helpful.

Central London hotels are expensive. Hotel 65 is one of the few hotels that provides for a near-central location but remains affordable. The downside is that the single rooms are enlarged closets. The location is convenient. The Hammersmith stations provide both Picadilly and Central Lines linking the entire system include direct service to Heathrow. the hotel is made up of 14 former town houses cut up into small and tiny rooms. No amenities. Breakfast is included: toast, butter, two slices of cheese, jam, coffee or tea, juice and cereal. Large tour groups of students and backpackers.

The hotel was undergoing a remodel, probably in preparation for London 2012. This however did not effect our stay and how well the hotel was run. The Hotel is made up of several houses that have been converted into a hotel. Each house still having its own entrance. If you are looking for a reasonably priced family run hotel with old London charm this would be a good choice. Our room was large with a modern en-suite bathroom. We asked for a double and twin and got a double and two twins in the same room. Very clean. I would have liked a reading light next to my bed but I am sure if I would have asked they would have found one for me. FRONT DESK WAS VERY HELPFUL. I could not believe how friendly and helpful they were: lots of local information, providing travel passes and helpful hints. I had planned to go to Oxford Street to shop but then the receptionist told me about Westfield Shopping Center in Shepard's Bush, so I decided to try it. Huge indoor mall with an area called "The Village" which was full of designer name stores, and loads of dinning options. Easier to move around than Oxford Street but I felt like I was in an American mall so still ended up going to Oxford Street to get the atmosphere while doing my shopping at Westfield! Continental Breakfast was included and consisted of tea/coffee/chocolate with toast and cheese. The dinning room was congested but nobody had to wait for anything. Service was very efficient.

Great hotel. In a quite neighborhood, but a little out of the way from city center (10 minute walk to underground and then 25 minute ride at least), but worth the time.

I had read other reviews that said that the bathrooms were small.. However I did not notice that very much. The only part was that you had to stand back a little when closing the door but it was not bad at all. The staff were all very nice and very very helpful! Even helping us print out a route to the airport for an early flight. The location was nice with access to the underground within a ten minute walk. (Or you could take the bus) The breakfast at the hotel was basic (cheese, toast, tea, coffee, orange juice, cereal) but was enough to start the day. One thing that was bad was that we could hear lots of the street noises, so if you are concerned about that then you might want to book a room in the back. Other than that I would stay here again and would recommend to friends.

Needed a bed when the ASH cloud overwhelmed Europe.Main road in a city residential area.Helpful staff, places to eat and grocery store near by. 1/2 mile walk to the tube. (level 2 cost)Felt safe at all times.[...]

Good location but very small room with very uncomfortable bed. Tiny TV that got two stations. Better cheap options out there.

Great location directly on the Picadilly line, between Heathrow and London center: we were close to West End, saw a play with half price tix from Leicester Square, St Pauls, walking tours easily. Room was at back, very quiet, lots of school groups also, clean remodeled modern rooms, computer and internet access free, Rouge cafe across the street had jazz nite, Thai and tapas cheap nearby, breakfast was cereal or toast/coffee/juice- fresh but simple.

Nice hotel in a fun location (being near the University). Lots of convenient, reasonable, restaurants. Great morning breakfasts. Has lifts. East walking distance to the tube. My single room was on the small side, and the bathroom shower was frankly too small for a person of my size. But, was a very nice tourist class hotel.
