Clean, easy Tube access, plentiful breakfast, great host/owner. Best location: Street market , restaurant and stores nearby, nice, upscale neighborhood. Cant beat the rate! Jasmine, the owner/host is very helpful, personable and accomodating to your needs. I will stay there again!!!

I stayed at the Gate Hotel for the w-e and I think it's ok if you don't expect so much from an accommodation. The location is great (2 minutes fro the Tube and in Portobello Road) but the room is awfully small and old ! Moreover, the towels are not changed everyday !!!! Having the breakfast served into the room...

I booked this hotel mainly because of the convenient location and value for money. But to be honest I would have rather paid more and stayed somewhere pleasant than the horrible room we were given. The exterior of the hotel is lovely and is opposite a great pub. It's also 2 minutes from the tube so access to all the...

Great location on Portabello Road. Quiet at night. The luxury Double was fairly small, and basic but adequate. Tea and coffe in room, and a comfy bed. Owners quite helpful. You pay for the location, and the size of the room is probably a fair reflection of what you'd get in other hotels in London. Less than 5 minutes walk...

I stayed here for a week in June 2005. I was a female travelling solo, and felt very safe in the area, even coming back late after a show. Very tiny room, and tiny bath, but at least it was private. Decor was kind of run down, but seemed pretty clean. My mini fridge did not work when I checked...

Me and my partner recently stayed at the Gate Hotel. It is now under new management and I have to say the new owner was great. She helped us with local information and made our stay very comfortable. Room sizes are ok, what do you expect for a small hotel in Notting Hill. Breakfast was delivered to our room at...

For the price, it was quite nice. The room was tiny and the bathroom miniscule, but it was clean and homey. The staff was friendly but seemed busy and hard to catch. I had an overnight flight and was allowed into my room much earlier than their posted check in time- they were even apologetic that I had to wait...

Great value. Not exclusive. Not a very professional staff. Not the coolest decoration in the world, more british as we all know looks quite awfull (sorry brits). The bathroom is quite nice though. The staff is on the contrary very nice and try to do what they can to help you. Instead of a breakfastroom you get it in you're...

My best friend and I found The Gate Hotel while walking through Notting Hill one day. We had already stayed a couple days at another horrible hotel and could not stand it any longer. We asked for a room for the next ten nights, although on such short notice, we were not expecting much. The hostess was so nice and...

Cramped. The bathrooom door didn't close. Only place to sit was on the bed or on a badly stained stool. Carpet soiled. Proprietress arranged a "taxi" to Victoria Sta but some private car showed up, which was not allowed to use the taxi access to Gatwick Express. Relatively cheap at GBP 80 but still very poor value for the money.

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
