We enjoyed a great breakfast, full English and a ham toast, in a nice and cosy atmosphere. Great staff, polite and relaxed. Fun close-to-Clinton story on the presentation of the place. Big + for having Pilsener Urquel!

Yes, the rooms are dinky and low-key. But they're clean, and you feel you are valued and cared for by the friendly, funny and helpful staff. It's a short walk from Notting Gate and the tube, allowing you quick access to Central London with the cozy return to fabulous Notting Hill. Thank you for the fantastic service and laughs, Portobello... More

We stumbled across this gem of a bar whilst traipsing about Portobello Road Market. I was ravenous and this was just what was needed. No frills menu, fantastic food, great beer and wine selection and funky music, what more could you want in a swanky part of Londontown? The waitress was a tad rude, maybe she was having a hard...

Good food, beer and staff! The bedroom is small but you have everything that you need. Very close to shop, tube and bus stop. Obviousily you are also inside the Portobello Market so every Saturday you find it outside the hotel!

I had a great experience at the Portobello Gold. I found it on TripAdvisor after reading the reviews and thought it was a good fit for me. Is it for you? Here are the essentials to know: - The location is one of the best, a few blocks from the Notting Hill Gate tube station, on a street that has... More

This is an old pub, so don't expect 5 star luxury. However, if you take room 6 with the roof terrace you will have a unique London experience, worth every penny. Be aware that the room has no shower or shower attachment. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The pub itself has a good vibe and serves excellent real... More

The room is too small and the bathroom is just awful. The toilet did not work properly and the sink was placed in the shower. Also, the hotel entrance is blocked from 9 am to 5 pm (a street vendor uses the spot) so one has to use the restaurant to access the room, what may be tiresome and inconvenient.... More

This was our 3rd stay at The (Portobello) Gold. That's about as high of recommendation as we can offer. Others have said it so well in their reviews, ie: "This is not a hotel, it's a pub, and a bloody good one at that that allows you to live there for a while" & "You won't find a better crew... More

I had the best stay possible - again - and I will always come back when in London. If not to stay then to party. You want find a better crew of staff anywhere else in London. We partied hard every night and they made sure that we had a good time.

This is not a hotel, it's a pub, and a bloody good one at that that allows you to live there for a while. Staying above it is a privilege and the apartment with the roof terrace is a joy. Sure it isn't 5 star luxury but it's better than that. It gives you room to breathe and to really... More
