Helpful and service-minded and charming. But, the room was a disappointment. (Room 15). It is big, with a king-size bed, and a balcony with a view to the street....

Cosy and quirky with great service and perfect breakfast in an amazing neighborhood - just off Portobello Road and the chic but not stuffy Westbourne grove. It's the kind of hotel you would want to share with someone but you never feel lonely if you don't. Can't wait to come back here.
