"Discreet and rejuvenated hotel with rooftop pool and opulently decorated bedrooms."
Frommer's

Request one of the refurbished rooms; some of the older units are looking a little tired.

"An attractive Victorian townhouse in an elegant terrace."
Frommer's
"The quintessential Portobello Hotel tale is the night that Kate Moss and Johnny Depp allegedly took a champagne bath here. It sums up the hotel -- glamorous, bubbly, and expensive." Full review

"The very definition of shabby chic, the decor is half high-Victorian, half colonial, with claw-foot tubs and a great deal of red velvet."
Fodor's
"One of London's quirkiest hotels, the little Portobello... is seriously hip, attracting scores of celebrities to its small but stylish rooms that are decorated with joyous abandon." Full review
Time Out
