About K West Hotel & Spa

K-West Hotel and Spa are a Shepherds Bush hotel so cool that A-listers frequently visit. It’s a cosmopolitan oasis close to shopping hotspot Westfield London. It’s a world where rock-and-roll swagger meets urban cool.

This is an amazing four-star contemporary boutique hotel. Once the site of BBC Kensington House Recording Studios, K-West is a hidden gem with 219 spacious bedrooms alive with modern gadgets.

There’s a glamorous cocktail lounge, urban restaurant and three unique meeting rooms. The gym is large and the holistic spa the winner of several awards.

Established in 2001, the K-West is as much focused on being a great place to work as it is on the client experience. Staff say they get the chance to find out what they’re great at and their careers take off with ongoing coaching, development and training. They get great discounts, lunch is free and there’s a constant supply of chocolate.
