This is my second time at St James House apartments and unfortunately it will be my last - Next time it will be Airbnb. You can't fault the location, so convenient to the tube, buses and such a lovely location but the management of the apartments needs to improve dramatically to beat a well chosen Airbnb apartment. On arrival there... More

Positives first: We stayed in room 7, which looks lovely, it's in a great location, the room was very modern and clean and tastefully decorated. Unfortunately the bed spoilt it for us. It was a brick hard memory foam bed and my poor body ached all night on it. The TV was also far too small and difficult to watch... More

The appartement (#8 the one with bright green wall) as no curtain just big blind that cut all natural light when it's done to have some privacy. The bed was not the most sweat... More

Stayed in Apt 5 - basic facilities, small TV, not sprung mattress, flat pillows, linen could have been whiter, stuffy because if you open windows it is way too noisy. Definite no, no if it is hotter weather as no air-con. Convenient location - close to Overground and Underground at Shepherd's Bush [6-8 minute walk], good shower, good quality towels... More

The place is complete. It is near the Underground. It is clean. It has a kitchen, with utensils and cookwares. Maybe the only issue that we have is you hear noise from cars as it is beside a highway. Overall, great stay. Would stay here again if given the chance.

It was a mistake booking these apartments in spite of bad feedbacks on Tripadvisor. Almost everything in the room and hotel was made to make your staying absolutely uncomfortable: very poor room with cheap and old furniture, tiny bathroom, small TV, awful matress and pillows, and loud noise from the street. Moreover, when I've checked-in, the linen on the bed... More

We stayed at the apartment number 5 for 5 days on November. The location was good: calm neighborhood, well located. The apartment was clean, the heating and hot water were excellent, there was a wooden floor on the room and floor tile on the bathroom and we liked that very much (we didn't want wall-to-wall carpet!!!!). We have been very... More

I read reviews before going and saw that there was a problem with the mattresses being to hard. I thought that they couldn't be that bad but they were. The replies from staff to these reviews were that they were new etc but even two years down the line they will be the same. I loved the room but will... More

Stayed at this hotel (Apartment 10) for the first 3 nights of my 1 week holiday in London. Since there's no reception, I received a detailed instruction on how to get inside the property in exchange of my ID requested via email. Smooth check in since it's prepaid.

Don't even think about going here !!! The picture is not at all a true portrayal of what you will find !! There are narrow stairs and no lift. If you are on the top floor and on your own you will not be able to manage a suitcase by yourself. Had we been able to contact them with the... 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.
