About this listing

The space

This is the family home of an artist on the famous Portobello Road and market. The road is very busy on Saturdays, but peaceful the rest of the week. (Except during the Notting Hill Carnival which is at the end of August).

I would describe my home as "shabby chic" rather than super smart, and typical of the old style of Portobello houses. It is clean, light, airy artistic and comfortable . The room has a double bed, and is large and comfortable! There is a little roof terrace garden with table and chairs, which is lovely to sit out on, on warm summer night! The apartment has wifi throughout. Please note that I have 2 lovely cats!

Portobello Road is a wonderful and friendly area, full of cafes and bars. There is always interesting shopping and browsing in the market and surrounding shops. The market takes place every weekend, and you can browse the amazing antiques stalls, or maybe pick up an vintage bargain. There are also lots of amazing food stalls, selling cuisine from every corner of the world! During the week the street is a quieter, as the market stalls have gone, however the are is still charming and bohemian. Notting Hill is packed with one off coffee shops, restaurants, boutique stores, and antique shops.

It is a half hour walk from the house to Hyde Park. Points of interest in the park include Kensington Gardens, where James Barrie wrote Peter Pan. A lovely statue of Peter Pan and Tinkerbell the fairy, the Serpentine Gallery, Speakers Corner and the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial. The park also plays host to many festivals and concerts during the summer months.

The area also benefits from great transportation links. The house is just steps from Ladbroke Grove tube station, which gives you access to the Circle Line and Hammersmith and City Line. We are also just a short walk (around 15 minutes) to Notting Hill Gate. From here you can catch the Central Line.

Julie was an excellent host and was very kind. The home is located in a great area right by the market. The WiFi was a bit flakey and the floorboards in the room were loose, but overall we had a good stay. Fantastic value for price if you're just looking for a room to sleep in at night.

Airbnb portobello Okay... but not great. Nice, comprehensive and respectful host, good location, but too dirty for my liking. My description would go more towards shabby rather than chic. Can't complain about the rest.

Great location close to Notting Hill... close to quaint shops and super close to the train station. Lovely, accommodating host. I only stayed one night, but I certainly felt like a London local staying in such a unique home & non-touristy area. Thanks Julie!
