Getting to The Star Hotel
By Taxi: If you need assistance with taxi bookings during your stay, we use a reliable local company called Adams Cars. (We have never accepted commissions from a taxi service - meaning unlike most hotels, you get the best fixed price for any journey).

From Stansted Airport
By Coach/Underground: We recommend the 24-hour coach/bus services from Stansted Airport. Many flights from Europe can arrive late at night to Stansted. The coach services run to and from Stansted Airport Coach Station (located in front of the terminal forecourt) to London Victoria Coach Station. Tickets may be purchased on the coach or online before you travel. Visit www.terravision.eu, www.nationalexpress.com or www.easybus.co.uk (which goes to Baker Street). Victoria Station to Hammersmith Station can be reached on the District Line (green line). If it is too late for the Underground when you reach Victoria, take the 'nightbus' N11 to Hammersmith Underground station - which is also the bus station. We are then 5-10 minutes walk down Shepherd's Bush Road.
By Train/Underground: A more expensive option, the Stansted Express train service runs every 15 minutes and reaches London Liverpool Street station in 45 minutes. See www.stanstedexpress.co.uk for first and last trains. The Underground from Liverpool Street is direct to Hammersmith via the Hammersmith & City line (pink line) and should take another 35-45 minutes. Taking this line means you will come out of the smallest of the 2 Hammersmith Underground buildings. You will have to walk to the left and we are then a 5-10 minutes walk down Shepherd's Bush Road.
From Heathrow Airport
By Underground: The Piccadilly line serves Heathrow, with trains running every few minutes from early morning to late evening. This is the best way to get to our hotel from Heathrow. It takes approx. 30-35 minutes to and from Hammersmith station.
By Coach/Underground: National Express coaches run to and from Victoria Coach Station every 30 minutes.
By Car: If you are picking up a hire car, then follow the M4 all the way into London until you get to Hammersmith roundabout. Take the turning for Shepherds Bush Road and you will reach the hotel in 0.5km.
