Stayed here based on decent reviews and what an utter joke and disappointment. First of all they charge 100% deposit when you book your room. During check in I was asked for an ID so they can scan and keep on file. I've stayed at tons of hotels on London and never ever had someone ask to scan my ID.... More

This wonderful haunt in the heart of Ladbroke Grove is a real gem. An Italian / British family run this bistro bar. As a result , the food is simply magnificent , particularly the roasts on a winter Sunday . I love this place and so do most of the Grove's educational workforce . The food is excellent and the...

An odd little boutique hotel with a weird entrance above a bar in Portobello. Slightly worrying opening line but don't panic, it's all good! It's clean and tidy inside with pleasant staff. The room we had needs a little updating but generally was ok. The bed was really comfortable, one of the best hotel beds I've slept in for years... More

Two couples, two rooms. We were all happy. We discovered that the room size varies quite a bit. Room 22 is small, room 16 was much bigger in case that matters to you. You will hear street noise and maybe some sound from the bar. That said, we loved the place. Sparkling clean, hairdryer in room, lovely decor. Everyone could... More

Great hotel! Rooms, service, staff, restaurant, and bar were wonderful. Located in Notting Hill, one block from Portobello Road. We walked to Kensington Gardens. Free breakfast was nice and the food in the restaurant was lovely.

Le Boyfriend, who usually pays little attention to such things, said "what a great find this place is!!" Portobello House is conveniently located in Notting Hill, a short walk from the Ladbroke Grove underground and minutes from Portobello Road with its myriad of shops and restaurants.

"Posh" is not in my normal vocabulary but I've heard this placed called it so much I've begun to use it. Very clean hotel. Rooms are small but very nicely decorated and well kept. The hotel staff were exceptionally nice and accommodating. Also, Notting Hill is a very clean and comfortable neighborhood.

Really nice hotel in a great spot in London. A 5 minute walk from Ladbroke Grove, really close to Portobello Road and Notting Hill. Very good value! Also has a great little bar downstairs that does lovely food and cocktails with a great happy hour. The hosts were very lovely and helpful as well.
