4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed there for three nights. The lovely room a large enough, and clean. The bed were confortable, and we spent three calm nights with a peaceful neighbourhood. The staff is polite and capable. No bad surprise. There's free wifi in every room, and we leaved our luggage before the check-in. We didn't try the breakfast. It's easy to find,... More

The location and style of the hotel is great and I was very much looking forward to a good nights sleep after a long day of touring around London but was extremely disappointed to see the size of my room and single bed. Needless to say I had a very uncomfortable night sleep and for the prize I think they... More

We really enjoyed the cleanliness of the hotel and the modern look that it had. The staff were helpful and with a location in walking distance of a metro, we couldn't ask for me. We used this hotel as a base for our student group and it was in a safe neighborhood with a great lobby to meet in the... More

My wife and I have travelled to London many times over the years and have been consistently disappointed by the dearth of affordable, nice hotels in good locations. We have now found one in the London House Hotel in Bayswater, near Notting Hill. The affordable (relative to the cost of hotel rooms in London, which usually exceed $200 per night... More

Close to both Bayswater and Queensway this hotel is very convenient. Some rooms are very small, like Harry Potter's room under the stairway, like adding an extra floor inbetween other floors in Being John Malkovich style, but hey it's clean, cheap and in a good location. I have been there three times, and will surely come back.

This was a lovely, well kept, little boutique hotel which had easy access to the London sights via the subway network. Ideally positioned without being dead centre located at city centre prices. Staff were both friendly and efficient. Rooms looking on to the square tended, as I understand it, to be quieter than others.

Found this hotel through an internet search for something reasonably priced and central for London. This hotel was perfect. Obviously recently refurbished, the hotel was fresh, clean and modern. Rooms are of course small-as you would expect from a boutique city hotel- but more than adequate. Good shower room, free WiFi, tea ,& coffee in room too. Staff all very... More

I booked for 6 nights but checked out on the 5th. Could not deal with the slamming of doors, the daily morning disturbance of housekeeping in the corridor, chatting and shouting away...

The hotel is perfectly located to discover Kensington and the Portobello area. The breakfast is not included in the room fee and is ok for a one night stay, but after 2 mornings you want a bit more variation which is not available. The room we stayed in had all the features listed, which is remarkable given it's size of... 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.
