When one says West London, he might be referring to two things – the West End, which is the western edge of London’s central part, or on the whole western part of the Greater London area. This might sound a bit complicated, but it actually isn’t – in our article about the best hotels in West London, we decided to include the hotels from both of these areas. Just like other parts of Central London, the West End has a great number of shops, attractions, entertainment venues, and government buildings, and is certainly a great place to stay at if you’re a tourist who decided to visit the capital city of the United Kingdom. Many consider the Piccadilly Circus to be the heart of this area, and this square is also one of the most famous squares in the world, and a major tourist attraction of London. Other attractions would include the Madame Tussauds museum, the Royal Albert Hall, the Natural History Museum, the Hyde Park, the Kensington Palace (and gardens), the Kew Gardens, and many other places worth visiting – and since this definitely cannot be done in just one day, one should book a room in one of the best hotels of West London:
