Average things, room was a bit grubby (stained bed throw, brown finger smears in bathroom!!) and very small. Although to be fair , we were made aware of room size on the website. Now for... More

It's always hard to find a good, independent boutique hotel in London that lives up to the hype and website pictures but Portobello House is a truly superb find, for business or pleasure. Eclectic Ladbroke Grove has everything on its doorstep and this hotel matches that cultural vibe perfectly. The decor is modern and the rooms are a good size... More

A sweet little spot in Portobello with quaint accommodation connected to a nice bar and close to a tube station, as well as, Portobello Road. We had a large room, nice bathroom and a great experience with check-in and check-out. Percy's bar had some great food and drink choices and was lively, but not loud, on the weekends. The only...

A lot of London boutique hotels are just a little better than bland corporates but the Portobello is in a different league. It oozes class and staff are attentive.In a stylish part of London with a private garden whats not to like

Brilliant place to go to experience West London in all its glory! Family have been going to this place for the past 80 years.First as a pub now as a hotel and it never fails to please! Can't recommend this venue enough.Once you have finished your meal why not trip up the wonderful Portobello Road.

It opens for lunch and by evening has quite a turnout of locals. We really enjoyed the convenience of the this. The location on Portobello Rd. and... More

Dear Ellena, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a positive review. We do have a good breakfast available at a small cost which includes cheese, croissant ,and cappuccino, , but we find most people opt for the complementary breakfast of tea and toast or coffee and muffins. If you have a moment I would be very... 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
