I arrived to discover that I has lost my passport. Upon check-in the front desk went out of their way to comfort me and help me get in contact with the necessary authorities to get my passport replace. It worked! They not only helped by making calls and giving me information, but they were genuine and really cared. The room... More

As a single traveler in London last week, I can tell you without question that you will love this hotel and it is highly recommended. Pros: The location is wonderful -- a bit away from the craziness of Soho but close enough to be there in just a few moments... lots of great places to eat and stores nearby. In... More

This hotel has good price vs quality ratio. Rooms are bit small but clean. Location is good, very close to Shopping center and Bayswater station and there are lots of places to eat near by. Breakfast cost 7£ and value was OK. Free Wifi. Staff is helpful and polite. I would be happy to stay here again!

It's no five star boutique hotel, but then again you're paying a fifth of the price. Stayed here a number of times for work and will happily return for leisure. The hotel is clean and fresh and the rooms are perfect for a short stay, and better than some hotels at twice the price.

We recently stayed a Friday evening until Wednesday. Trying to find a hotel below 250 GBP per night is not easy. Doing it last minute is harder. This lovely no fuss hotel located right on a small green park, ask for garden room, is minutes from Bayswater and Queensway tube stations (literally on the same short block). Gatwick to Victoria...

This clean and reasonably priced hotel is situated just off a main street, across from a park, in west London. Situated just a couple of minutes walk from both Bayswater, Paddington & Queensway underground stations. Room was small but perfectly OK. Very basic room with small fridge and kettle. A written explanation of the room and its amenities would have... More

I've stayed in this hotel 3 times (in 2009, 2013 and 2014) and probably will come back again when visiting London the next time (even though they didn't acknowledge it in any way that I'm a returning customer). I asked (and paid) for a room with a garden view but this time the view was to the street and it... More

Situated just a couple of minutes walk from both Bayswater & Queensway underground stations on a quiet square. Recently modernised in a simple clean style. Friendly efficient staff at check in. Room was small but perfectly OK. Room at the back was quiet. At £109 per night reasonable for London

Quiet central location, close to Circle and District tube stations and all rooms with ensuite and a fridge! were the rationale for choosing London House. Also, you could walk to Paddington to catch the Heathrow express, though we ended up on the tube to the airport. Doesn't take that much longer. The rooms were small but we booked one that... 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.
