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

I was reluctant to book at Blue Bells after reading the horrible reviews, but seeing that the recent ones were good I decided to go ahead and book. I'm very happy with my choice. I travel alone but booked a double room with a double bed. It was on the second floor overlooking a nice garden, and I was very... More

The location was excellent, near Notting Hill Gate Underground, near Portobello Road. Rooms are spacious. A pity they didn't have any bedlamps, difficult to read. Breakfast was very very simple: just toast & jam. Kind Indian people.

Breakfast is simple, but ok (toast, marmelade, cereals, tea/coffe/orange juice. Staff is very nice, always attentive. Wi-fi could have been faster, but all'n it worked quite well, - even in our room (was... More

I travelled with my husband for 4 nites to London. Choose the hotel because of the location and the official pictures on it's website. The first nite was terrible as we received room in the basement. The room was dark, small and noisy because of the tube in every 2 min's from 5.30 am till midnite. Luckily and finally with... More
