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 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

What a lovely little spot to have dinner. My husband, daughter and I had a humbly named Sunday "roast" (which was actually prime rib.) The dinner included delicious carrots, crispy potatoes and Yorkshire pudding. So delicious! We even got a carafe of wine for free because we both ordered the roast. My daughter is quite young, so we ordered her... More

If you don't like to go to sleep to the sounds of cars driving by your window, make sure you do not book a street facing room as every noise echoes in the room. It sounded as if our window was still open even after closing it, pulling drapes, and turning on AC. Big drawback for an otherwise nice and... More
