Stayed at these apartments while looking for a place of my own and found them adequate for a short period of time. The kitchen in my studio was tiny and being on the first floor meant that I got lots of the street noise, plus someone coming through to water the plants outside my window every few days. Was kept...

I must say that before staying at this hotel I had a horrible mental image of London hotels: old, shabby... Just the opossite of Somerset Kensington Gardens.

I have been to this hotel 3 times and have booked my next trip already. I find the bed confortable, the room well appointed and the TV line up excellent. After a day at work is a real homecoming. Staff is really kind, I once asked for an extra arm chair and the manager himself brought it up at moments...

I stayed in an apartment with a bedroom and a separate kitchen/living room. It was very big, the decor was modern and fashionable and the bed very comfortable. The location is perfect being a couple of minutes from a busy shopping street and two tube stations. Its near Hyde Park and 45-60 mins walk to Oxford St. The hotel contributed...

The reception looks very basic, but the staff are extremely helpful, I'd say the nicest I've ever come across in any hotel in any city. The night receptionist even came out to greet me as I was returning at night with lots of revellers in the street. (celebrating a sporting win!) "studioette" apartment was a bit small, but fine for...

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.
