Overall a really nice hotel on the surface but unfortunately there are a few things letting it down. On arrival (we had been let down elsewhere on parking), it was fairly late and asked about local parking, the receptionist had no idea, not even about the parking immediately outside. Our room was very small, that I don't mind but it...

You get to the hotel part of "Portobello House" by means of a code through a door on the street and up a sort of fire escape. Reception is tiny and a steep climb awaits you to your room. There is no lift, so anyone with mobility issues will have a problem. Booking in was quite ellaborate with photographic evidence...

It's always hard to find a good, independent boutique hotel in London that lives up to the hype and website pictures but Portobello House is a truly superb find, for business or pleasure. Eclectic Ladbroke Grove has everything on its doorstep and this hotel matches that cultural vibe perfectly. The decor is modern and the rooms are a good size...

A sweet little spot in Portobello with quaint accommodation connected to a nice bar and close to a tube station, as well as, Portobello Road. We had a large room, nice bathroom and a great experience with check-in and check-out. Percy's bar had some great food and drink choices and was lively, but not loud, on the weekends. The only...

A lot of London boutique hotels are just a little better than bland corporates but the Portobello is in a different league. It oozes class and staff are attentive.In a stylish part of London with a private garden whats not to like

Dear Ellena, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a positive review. We do have a good breakfast available at a small cost which includes cheese, croissant ,and cappuccino, , but we find most people opt for the complementary breakfast of tea and toast or coffee and muffins.

“If you need space, spend the extra for Room 24. If you don't care, save money for the excellent bar by booking a cozy room.”

“If you want to try to get away from the noise of the busy street and pub be sure to ask to stay on the top floor. I can't imagine how noisy the rooms just over the pub must be.”
