We stayed here not knowing what to expect having not done any research, but what we was greeted with was a charming little hotel busting with character! The location is perfect - right in the middle of Portobello road close all the boutique shops and restaurants. The staff really do make the hotel what it is, they are all so... More

We have just spent a fabulous weekend at the Portobello Gold which was made extra special by the friendly attentive staff. The hotel is full of character and ideally situated for many of the local attractions. Our room was tiny but really cosy with very comfortable bed and exceptionally soft feather pillows. It was well laid out with everything you... More

My second stay at Portobello Gold. I like the atmosphere of the place and friendly helpful staff. It feels like staying with friends. The food is nice and nothing feels too corporate. It is close to the Tube Station at Notting Hill Gate so I got myself to the hotel from Heathrow Airport relatively easily, dragging my suitcases behind me.... More

While the common parts and the room itself could benefit from some serious "freshening up" - in terms of decor - the sheets and bathroom were clean, the towels were clean if a little "previously enjoyed by others". The helpfulness and friendliness of the Staff - Nick, Magda, Lindsey and Alex was remarkable - all seemed to care you had... More

Had a night at the Gold and loved it - such a good location - we walked there from Paddington station (about 25 mins) through a lovely part of London. Then it was so easy to jump on a bus or a tube from the end of Portobello Road and get anywhere we liked! Staff were welcomming and made us... More

This was our third stay at the Gold. A welcomming staff and a very special and cosy enviroment.The appartment on the top has a nice roof terrace, but a shower would be a advantage, but we will definately come back to the Gold, and we recomand the Gold to our friends.

Just stayed for 2 nights at the Portobello Gold. The room was tiny but with all facilties, clean, adequate breakfast and very cheap considering the location in the heart of fashionable Notting Hill. The staff were friendly and caring and the restaurant food excellent

I love this hotel and have stayed here about 5 times over the years. The rooms are above a pub in the heart of portobello road - great ambience all around. Most of the rooms are quite small and ensuite but the food is good if you eat here and the service is excellent. Last time I came there was... 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.
