We weren't expecting a suite, but we were expecting a room where there would be a place to put your luggage so one could access clothing and turn around without bumping into your roommate. The room (maybe 10x10 with 2 twin beds) and bathroom (if you could even call it that...no more than 2 feet wide and 5 feet in... More

There is much more to say than London House is a modern, recently renovated hotel, situated within a few blocks of numerous shops, restraunt and underground stations. My wife and I stayed there for three nights and felt very comfortable and welcome. The very new looking rooms weren't huge but had all the space we needed. The bathroom was also... More

London House hotel is a modern place on a quiet square behind the high street in Bayswater and is very close to the underground station there. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is a big selection of restaurants and shops in the immediate vicinity. I had a single room which was a good size by London standards. I will... More

The hotel was very clean and very neat. Rooms were small, but no smaller then any other mid-range hotel. The staff were a bit unfriendly at times, but the hotel itself is perfect for a quick stay in London. Very close to everything. I would definitely stay there again.

I used trip advisor to find this hotel room, read the reviews and am happy to say that that it lived up to my expectations! The hotel and especially the lobby made my travel companions jealous (they weren't staying here). It is elegant and classy and the room was very clean. Per recommendation we booked the garden view room which... More

My teenage daughter and I shared a twin room with bathroom. The bedroom was very, very small. Not really enough room for our suitcases but we did squeeze them in. The room and bathroom were clean and everything worked, The location was quite good, only a five minute walk from the underground. The desk staff were helpful, not friendly, but... More

Clean, confortable, friendly...is really a top choice for a nice stay in London, looking of course about costs and benefits. The only observation is about the room size, little but looking for the London standard is ok.

Coming from a hotel/Food Service background: A little far from the center of the city, but has a nice little town feel to it; some shops and restaurants one block down the street. The room was clean, the staff, friendly and moderately accommodating. (Issues with an early check-in, after being awake for 30 hours-front desk was not accommodating at all!)... More

Our experience was fairly unmemorable. But Satisfactory. Paid £170 for a basement family room (B4). Lobby etc was well presented. As for our room there wasn't much room once the twin beds and double bed were taken account for but comfortable. When we arrived the room was hot like a sauna but temp control worked just fine and quickly. Bathroom... More

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighborhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
