Stayed here on the 12th of November, room was large and clean, toilet way too high in 5ft2 had to climb onto it and have my legs dangle, not very comfy! Bed was hard, and the coffee table was missing some corners making it sharp and dangerous, no shampoo or shower gel in bathroom, kitchenette was a small shaky cupboard... More

Tiny rooms but at this price its not bad. I travel to London so often that its like my second home. Hotel rooms in London are pretty small everywhere. Receptionist was very helpful. I have already booked my next stay at this hotel. If you are big you might struggle to fit into the bathroom. Its small.

We booked here for 5 nights while we were looking for an apartment in London. We booked a double room which felt very small and cramped but that's probably just London and turned out to be the least of our worries. There was limescale and dirt all over the doors and around the base of the shower. The rooms are... More

Being an apartment hotel, the rooms are equipped with a small kitchen and if breakfast is ordered it is brought to the room. There is no possibility to choose what you would like for breakfast however, which means you get spoiled by a croiassant not worthy of the name, half a pint of milk, small cup of plain yoghurt, travel...

I've stayed in small rooms in London before, so the size of the room isn't the problem. It's arranged as if they had never planned on anyone actually staying there. The bed is within arms length of the cooktop, and the refrigerator can't open all the way without hitting the bed. But on the other side of the room, they've... More

I have to start this review by saying I didn't pay for my stay, my company did as I was here on business. I was here for one night and I didn't have any issues. The staff were friendly, the parking was easy and the room was functional. The hotel is in the heart of Bayswater. You're surrounded by great... More

Absolutely horrendous hotel. A dump, trading on its location. From the outside, this building looks like the classic London wedding cake white townhouse with black railings, if a little down at heel. The lobby is basic but reasonable, the stairs to the first floor look like marble, etc. This is as far as any good impression will last. The rooms... More

I booked the SO Hyde Park for a business overnight in London. The day before I had to change plans. I knew (and accepted) that there was a cancellation policy, but I thought it would be good manners to tell them that I wasn't going to be able to use the room. The guy who took the call just couldn't... More

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighborhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
