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 neighbourhood, 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.

We’ll be in London 9/12-9/23 an would like to book a charming room, but one that also has a modern shower or walk-in shower for my 80+ yr old husband. I understand you have a room w a balcony. Would it also have a modern shower? What room should I ask for?
I think you should check with the hotel.

Hi, does the hotel have parking, if not where is the best place to park
Does the hotel have a lift? From street level? I mean, how many stairs are there to reception- luggage will be difficult! Thank you, in advance!
Dear mani8kgm, Thank you for your enquiry. There are six steps from the street, our porters will be there to help you with your luggage into the hotel and to your room. There is a lift giving you access to all our floors. We look forward to seeing you very soon.

"Rooms backing onto the back garden and/or higher up are quieter!"
"We would choose a room with a tub next time. But not at the expense of a street view."
"Book a room on the garden"
"There are many rooms. Choose one to suit your budget."
"would guess any would be quiet and comfortable."
