The Portobello Hotel doesn't feel like a hotel. It feels more like spending a few days with a rich, funky aunt who happens to live in London's Notting Hill
From Hip Hotels
The Portobello discovered long ago that the key to success was to play up its quirks and style. This is a hotel that happily flaunts its own eccentricity. The rooms –unusual, inventive, cosy, and very sexy – have had that much admired haphazard, casual look that is deemed so typically English.
The Portobello Hotel was voted Sexiest beds by Harpers and Queen
Wanna know the coolest place to stay in London . Why, the Portobello Hotel of course. This small, offbeat hotel attracts a real mish-mash of guests from actors and rock stars to models and writers.
From Vogue travel Magazine
The walls of the Portobello could tell a story or two. It's the kind of place where you want to sign a record deal, or at least have a song written about you – a hotel for poets and musicians and late-night trysts

Grandiose mansion in a white Victorian terrace in the upscale part of town. Two sculpted box plants stand sentry at the entrance. Inside, the furnishings and décor take a more eccentric turn and the reception is deliberately understated. If you feel that one hotel looks and feels much the same as another, this is the place is for you. London's first townhouse hotel has been hosting pop stars, models and movie idols for 31 years.
From The Guardian
Popular with all manner of celebrities from rock 'n' roll aristocracy and actors to supermodels and fashion designers, the Portobello Hotel is the kind of place that's crying out for some upscale debauchery and shameless fun.
