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.

What a lovely hotel, interesting decor and furnishings, very comfortable beds, and a pleasant breakfast. Situated in a very interesting and comfortable part of the capital. All very good, only let down by some dilatory staff.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, beautiful building with period furniture and a lovely collection of ornate teaspoons. Warm welcome by the receptionist Diane who showed us around, particularly liked the honesty bar in the sitting room. Excellent WiFi. If you want any

We picked the hotel as it is within walking distance of the distillery. It is certainly a curious place to stay, really lovely staff and a fantastic room but definitely quirky. Would recommend it for a couple, probably not for families though

The Portobello Hotel is a quirky, quaint B&B style property in Notting Hill. It is not a luxury or modern property by any means, but it is situated in a lovely Notting Hill neighborhood on a quiet, residential street. It is a nice property but has an old, Victorian feeling

Dear Suzanne R, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your feedback after your recent stay at The Portobello Hotel. I am terribly sorry that your stay was spoiled by my team of foreigners. I must admit that I have found your comments on that bit too much and I am in fact surprised that Trip Advisor allowed your review to be published, as London is very multicultural city. And sometimes foreigners who live here know more about London than native Londoners. Once again I would like to thank you for your comments and offer my extended apologies. Kind Regards Krystyna Lech-Maziarka General Manager

Charming small luxury boutique hotel around the corner from the always exciting Portobello Road market and an easy 10+ minute walk to Notting Hill Gate tube. Sort of quirky with very accommodating staff it backs on to a quiet extensive garden area serving the entire muse.
