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.

I enjoyed a 2-night stay at the Portobello. The location is good, being in Notting Hill was fun and it is also a short walk to transportation into Central London. I arrived early and my booked room was not yet ready. Staff took pity on me (I'm sure I looked tired after overnight flight) and upgraded me to a very lovely room that opened onto Stanley Gardens (private garden but room had doors that opened so I could enjoy hearing the birds and taking in the fresh air). The bed and bedding were divine! Like sleeping in a cloud. The deep tub was perfect for a hot soak after a cold wet day in London. Breakfast was good, although the free breakfast was not quite as shown in photos from the hotel website. I did order hot food one morning and it was quite good. Also had lunch in the salon one day and it was quite good. My only 'con' comment is that things looked a bit worn...carpet was quite stained in my room, paint needs refreshing, sofas in the salon were quite threadbare. Otherwise...a delightful stay!

We stayed two nights recently in December for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. I live in London, but decided it would be nice to stay in town near Julies restaurant where we would be eating. This place really is a fantastic find. Bags of character, and the decor is more like a beautifully decorated home. The room had a sea theme including sea horse lamp. Really nice. The staff made us feel so welcome with nice touches like bubbles on arrival, and a flask of hot cocoa at night! We really enjoyed our stay and will definietly be back. Thank you. ps. The coffee/tea making machine is the best yet, and thankfully fresh milk to keep in the mini fridge.

I stayed at the Portobello Hotel for 5 nights. I was looking for a non-corporate hotel in a real neighborhood and this place in Notting Hill seemed to fit the bill. My original impression of my room was not positive as it was on the 4th floor (essentially an attic) and the eaves and sloping ceiling made me feel a bit claustrophobic. Nothing else was available so I settled in for the evening. I ended up having a delicious sleep in a very comfortable bed and decided to stay put. Over the days my appreciation for the place grew. I would order coffee to my room each morning which came with lovely China and heated milk. The breakfasts were good with a wide variety - enough to allow me to have different items each morning without having to order from the (extra) menu. The honor bar worked well and allowed me to take a nightcap to my room after the theater. The bed linens and towels are plush and of high quality. My room was a bit dark and I overlooked the street - next time would request a garden view room. The staff are pleasant and helpful and it’s nice, especially when traveling alone, to have someone know who you are when you come and go. And the neighborhood is lots of fun for walking and eating and convenient to two underground lines. If you’re looking for something a bit different, a slower pace, try it!
