London: Where We Stayed

Max and I recently took a four day trip to London, and we had the best time! I hadn't been to London since I was 16 (that was 2001), and for Max it had been even longer, so there was a lot for us to catch up on. We found the cutest boutique hotel in Notting Hill for our stay and thought I'd share a few photos of it incase you're planning a trip to London and are searching for a hotel. It was close to both Hyde Park and Portobello Road, and is also really close to two metro stations! The hotel itself is in an old Victorian building with crown moulding and high ceilings in each room which reminds me so much of my old 1920s apartment building in LA. It was super quiet and the staff were really friendly. In fact, we found ourselves having a lovely chat with the night attendant every night we were there about where to go and the history of the neighborhood! Our room came with free breakfast as well, which was a typical continental breakfast - toast, fruit, cheese, salami, croissants and cereal, enough to get us going for those long days of walking 22,000 steps! If you're into no frills and just want a solid hotel close to everything that's clean and quiet, this is the hotel for you. Check it out at the link below:

The interior was a mix of "east meets west" with ornate metallic wallpaper and black chandeliers. I would have loved to spend an evening reading on that comfy couch but we spend all of our evenings out on the town. I guess there's always next time!

  1. Gosh it's been ages since i went to London too, I was 16 the first time and it was a school trip, then I went quite a few more times over the year as I fell in love with the place, but I haven't been there since 2002!

    Those small cute boutique hotels are the best! I used to stay at one near Hyde park, but in Bayswater / Queensway and like yours it was in near proximity of everything :-)
