We were treated by a very friendly Frankie who manned the desk, served the bar was looked after the whole place with one other gentlemen (at least while we stayed there). The room was quaintly furnished, clean and comfortable. Breaks was nice and simple and staff always... More

This hotel is situated in the Portbello area of kensington. It is about a 10 minute walk to one of two tube stations, Ladbroke Grove in one direction, Notting Hill in the other. It is also about a 15 minute walk to one of London's top restaurants, the Ledbury. The area right around the hotel is quiet, most houses are... More

We stayed a couple of nights at Portobello House and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The decor and rooms are lovely and the staff very friendly and helpful. We also had an excellent meal in the restaurant/bistro. It was good value for London and in a good location. We would recommend this hotel and be happy to stay there again.

This Hotel was a real pleasant surprise for my wife and myself. We just completed a 4 night stay at the Hotel while vacationing in London. The Hotel is located a few blocks from the Portobello Market and only three blocks from the Tube. It is not your typical hotel. It is very charming and more like a B&B than... More

Portobello House Hotel is a small hotel with less than 20 rooms. It is located just 5 min. walk from Portobello Road. The room was bright and the bathroom was decorated with Marilyn Monroe Pictures. :-) I loved the breakfast! Toast, yoghurt, cake, jam and Nutella. Free internet.

Booked via lateromms, and although area was not central Notting Hill more Ladbrooke Grove we were so impressed by the hotel. Very nicely decorated, clean and adequate size rooms, extremely helpful, cheerful staff, great cocktail/tapas bar downstairs. Fantastic atmosphere/vibe. Complimentary breakfast was a surprise bonus and just right! Would definitely recommend and return.

Just a short walk from the Ladbroke Grove station, this friendly B&B offers very comfortable and tasteful rooms and the bistro and bar serve delicious food. The breakfast buffet offered traditional European fare including delicious bread, jam, yoghurt, fruit, cheese, coffee, juice, and cereal selection. Our late night dinner was creative and delicious. We will definitely return on our next... More

We stayed on Saturday night after a party in Notting Hill and were not expecting too much but, even with those low expectations, we were sorely disappointed. The room was tiny. That's OK as we only wanted a bed for the night but, even at Ikea, you can pick slightly less shabby furniture and maybe fix the cheapest-ever TV on... More

Dear guest, Where to start ! We are sorry you did not enjoy your complimentary tea/toast coffee/muffins breakfast.Our main breakfast of cheese /ham/croissant and cappuccino is only £9 and maybe you should have requested it , although most people love our complimentary breakfast and do not take that option . All our rooms have great coffee from brand new nespresso... More

This was the second time I've stayed at the Portobello House and found the staff friendly as usual and the location perfect for my needs. The room maintenance has decreased a bit from my last stay but was still acceptable. What I found unacceptable was a band playing in the downstairs bar until midnight which made it impossible to sleep... More
