Budget friendly, close to Kensington Palace and half hour walk to History Museum. Round the corner from Portabello road market and shops with lots of restaurants and take away places five minute walk. Close to tube station. Clean rooms with towels changed daily. Basic breakfast and coffee on tap all day. Staff very helpful.

The staff are very helpful and welcoming, especially the lady who serves breakfast. Don't listen to negative comments. I would happily recommend. Short walk to tube. The rooms are very clean. No lift so request ground floor if stairs are a problem.

We left it to the last minute, so I did not read the rather mixed reviews until after I’d paid (I chose to pay in advance which was not required). My heart sank a bit on reading some quite negative comments. However when we arrived I was very pleased. It is in a large, detached period building with high ceilings,... More

Good location and inexpensive for the area, but let down by a lack of maintenance. Also we booked a double and were given a twin with beds pushed together. Also a bad lack of tea and coffee provided that was not topped up when room was cleaned. They did let us leave our luggage when we checked out so we... More

I'm so glad I ignored the bad reviews and booked this place. The location is fantastic , right in the heart of Notting Hill but on a quiet square overlooking one of the famous private gardens there. The service at the reception was friendly and kind. The room quite big (we had a quadruple in the basement), with a fridge... More

Pluses - location close to shops, underground station, restaurants - friendly staff - charming old style building - "you get what you pay for", affordable given the area - clean linen - good wifi all round Minuses - noisy, musty room - facilities and furnishings old and need updating e.g. torn curtains - shower not very hot - no lift

Staff was friendly and they allowed us to leave our luggage at the desk for awhile when we arrived before the room was ready. Also, after checking out, we were allowed to leave our luggage in a closet upstairs, although it was unlocked. The room had an old deadbolt lock that was a bit loose on the door, so I'm... More

I made a reservation at BBH when I couldn't find anything else a month before I arrived, even though I read some negative reviews here. The clerk gave me Room G3, which is adjacent to the office and dining room. The clerk was in a meeting when I arrived but quickly showed me the room. One look and I didn't... More

I wish to say to them thanks a lot for help! I was disappointed and I had a really bad service in "Notting hill hotel", 2 Pembrige Square, which I should leave, so I was without any accomodation for night with the baby(it looked like that horrible hotel kicked me and my baby out!). Yeah, yeah, could somebody believe it?!... More
