We stayed at London House Hotel for one night enroute to Paris. It is nicely situated in Bayswater, near the tube, on a pleasant street of townhouses overlooking a garden square. The triple room was compact but had every necessary convenience and was decorated in a modern minimalist style. Comfortable but not cozy or charming. I would recommend for a... More

Hi My friend and I stayed for one night in this hotel and we had a lovely time. We had a compact twin room with a very spacious full length wardrobe where suitcases can easily be stored. It was also facing the gardens. The rooms are exceptionally clean and the staff are very accommodating if you need extra towels etc...... More

Nice low cost hotel, well situated for sightseeing. Clean albeit small rooms. Friendly reception staff which made checking in/out easy and straightforward. Its not for those with exact and extravagant tastes but for those who just want a clean and serviceable place to stay whilst sightseeing for a few days then I would recommend. I would come again.

Now I'd stay at the london house hotel twice and it really have all you need.It's near to the underground and the area around Queensway it's very nice with shop and restuarants. The rooms is, eventhough they are small good and renovated. The breakfast is not worth buying

We stayed at the hotel for two nights in March 2010 and had a triple as we had our teenage daughter with us. Since it was a triple, there was really not much room, but we had been prepared for this, so weren't really that bothered. It was a very basic hotel, but adequate for us. Pros: The hotel was...

We were surprised to read your remark about the bed as we recently changed all the beds and mattresses in the hotel. We bought very high quality mattresses and made sure its the same kind of mattresses used by 5 stars hotels. Most of our guest are very happy with the bed comfort and some of them also posted reviews... More

I am an MBA student and come to London regularly to sit my exams. I booked my room through booking.com two months ahead, but they charged my card full price straight away instead of reservation fee only. When my flight was cancelled due to flight disruptions caused by volcano ash cloud and I realised I won't be able to come... More

I read you review and i would like to explain our position. A. You have booked via booking .com cheaper room type option that called “advanced purchased rate – non refundable” – it is clearly written that for this kind of room type/rate the payment will be charged fully in advance and will be non-refundable in case of cancelation.

We stayed in London House Hotel during Easter 2010. We're a family of 6 from Sweden, Parents + 4 "kids" (One 27 years old and three 20 years old). The rooms were clean and the beds very comfortable. The bathrooms were also clean. We stayed in 3 double rooms, of which one overlooked the park and two a backyard. We... More

We chose the hotel based on tripadvisor reviews. It is situated at a nice, quiet square with lots of restaurants, shops and 2 tube stations nearby. The rooms are newly refurbished and clean. The double rooms are big enough and if you go for sightseeing you don't spend much time there anyhow. You can make coffee or tea. Fridge and... More

Clean, newly refurbished in a modern style, good TV, toiletries, power points. Public areas spacious and comfortable. Near shops and transport. Nice area to walk around in. Staff enjoyed being helpful. Public internet kiosk which was very cheap (the software was crappy though). There was a lift, which is essential for older travellers.

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.
