Location, location, location..Great!! I wouldnt Call this a hotel. It`s a B&B. The room is tiny, and the shower....I have no words. I really struggled to get the Shampo out of my hair. Breakfast, it was very simple, nothing to get up for. Best part was the staff. Some of them was really nice. I`t was an experience for lifetime,... More

We booked really last minute and were on the point of accepting a bland anonymous chain hotel when we were pointed towards Portobello Gold by another hotelier who said that it was great value but not exactly trendy! If you want the superficial trimmings of a chain hotel then this is probably not for you; if you want great service... More

Overall the Portobello Gold is a great Location; In the Roof Apartment some improvements on the sanitary Equipment would really move it to a top place! It is located within the famous Portobello Road market and only 10 min. to Notting Hill Gate tube Station.

Thinking I was going for a nice stay in nottinghill I found the room really grotty and unclean. The staff were totally arrogant and disillusioned when I told them the facts about the room. Luckily there were loads of other hotels nearby so only had to endure for one evening.

We have already contacted Trip Advisor about this review. We did not have anyone staying by the name of Chris H around the time the report was written. When we looked further into the matter, we found that a Chris Hancock had been causing trouble in the bar downstairs. We had to throw him out and bar him from further... More

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
