It is no great shock to learn that The W14 Hotel is located in the London postcode area of W14. This part of London is known as West Kensington and is close to central London but just far enough from the most central parts to enjoy cheaper rates than the premium rates paid for being closer to the likes of Piccadilly Circus and Mayfair and indeed the main parts of Kensington (W8 and SW7). You will find a large number of bed and breakfast establishments in the surrounding area all benefiting from close proximity to two major exhibition centres, Olympia 0.3 miles (0.5 km) and Earls Court 0.6 miles (1.0 km). The W14 Hotel sits on Gunterstone Road which is a side street off of the major road link, the A4 Talgarth Road and West Cromwell Road. Guntserstone Road is a street made up of former Victorian Residences and the surrounding streets are still residential. In the surrounding area are plenty of shops and places to eat as well as a large supermarket. Just 0.1 miles (0.3 km) from Barons Court tube station on the London underground network and on the Piccadilly and District lines.
