The hotel is located on a very nice part of London near Portobello market, underground and busstops. It was quiet in the hotel.The hotel is ok but poor. The room was very dirty and very small. There were a few things broken: the curtains almost felt off and the fan didn't work. Also three of the six lights did't work. The people at the desk were friendly but served on one day our breakfast barefeet and wearing sportswear.

I booked this hotel for my father who was in London for a night and had an early-morning meeting in Notting Hill. The lady at the desk was friendly and helpful, but I'm afraid it wasn't a very nice hotel in general. They have a snappy, barking dog, the room was a bit smelly, as was the en suite toilet and overall the room and furniture was grotty and tired looking.

We LOVED our stay at the Gate Hotel right in Notting Hill Gate. It is the perfect location, near bus stops, the tube, Portobello Road (a Starbucks!!) - everything you need just outside your door. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly and made our stay easy and seamless! Of course small rooms - that's what you get at a B&B like this but it had everything we needed as we were hardly in the room! I would definitely recommend!

My wife and I just spent 3 days at the Gate and enjoyed our stay there. The room was very small, but very clean, and so reasonable for a Portobello Road B&B. I stayed around the corner 2 years ago and payed almost the same amount for a total dump! The room was decorated nicely, the bathroom looked almost new and there was plenty of hot water in the shower.our fridge worked fine and was a nice addition to the room. The breakfast was served to our room and was simple but enough. Toast, coffee/tea, cereal,juice, and bananas(one day). And if you want a more substantial breakfast, well walk a few yards in any direction and you're in the middle of a number of restaurants. The location is fantastic and the owner was kind and helpful. I would definately stay there again. For a little more money you can get an upper floor room with windows. We don't spend a lot of time in the room anyway, so the fact that it was small didn't matter all that much. A nice find for the area.

Great location. Very cramped accommodation. Bathroom was filthy with dead spiders, cobwebs that looked like they had been there for months and the toilet was dirty! Breakfast very basic. We left dirty towels in bath for replacing as instructed and when we returned they had been hung in bathroom to dry out!

Located at very nice neighborhood. Transport to mayor city atractions is very easy. Room is tiny, tiny, and no so clean. Rugs need to be cleaned badly, Breaksfat is fare. People is nice. If you drive a car is not a good place to stay because it is in the congestion area were you have to pay 8 GBP a day.
