An eclectic melting pot of cultures and characters make Portobello a constantly lively and fun place to visit. You might rub shoulders with celebs in E&O restaurant one minute and get a coffee in one of the authentic Portuguese cafes the next. Get down with the local DJs at the Mau Mau bar or watch a band at the Tabernacle. With Moroccans, Spanish, Portuguese, Caribbean and more recently American bankers, there is always something new to experience. From posh to bohemian from market stall to Michelin restaurant, there is something for everyone.
We are a 10 minute walk from White City station on the Central Line and a 15 minute walk from Wood Lane or Ladbroke Grove on the Hammersmith and District Line. We are also very close to major bus routes which go into central London and other parts of the city, many of which run all night.
I had a wonderful stay with Sallyjo, Sav and family. Thank you both for the warm welcome, beautiful room, bathroom, breakfast and conversation. I miss my stay in North Kensington already!
We stayed two nights in Sallyjo's house with she and her lovely family. Everything was great. The tube is 10 min walk. There are some shops close to her house and a supermarket. The room is as it is shown in the pictures. She left us a good breakfast.
And luckily she allowed us to leave our luggage.
We'd like to stay again with her.
Extremely kind hosts, Sallyjo and Savvas are very special people.
We had a lovely and extremely welcoming stay with Sallyjo and her family! The bedroom/bathroom were just as described in the listing. The location is in a great residential area and there are some restaurants nearby. Also close to the tube.
We enjoyed several meaningful conversations with Sallyjo. She really made our short trip to London more special than we expected!
Sallyjo and her family live in their own terraced house in North Kensington. We were made feel very welcome and erveryone in the family did their utmost to make us feel comfortable. Breakfast was great and we even got special cereal. The room was excellent and there was enough space for our luggage. We had our own separate bathroom right next to our bedroom on our own floor. Everything was very clean. There was a Tesco-Local just arround the corner and Westfield Shopping Centre can be reached on foot in 20 minutes or by bus line nr. 220 in under 5 minutes. You can reach Sallyjos house by bus line nr. 7 from Oxford Circus (40 minutes ride) via Paddinton or by tube to Wood Lane or White City right next to Westfield Shopping center. If you are a light sleeper you will need earplugs as there is a train line running right behind the house. But you do not hear a thing from the neighbours. The whole family is extremely nice and helpful. We would love to stay there again.
My husband and I were made to feel so welcome by the whole family, even before we arrived. We stayed 8 nights and had breakfast provided, if not made for us most mornings, including fresh baked bread!
We're given tips on where to go and maps, just generally created some great memories! Thank you!
Sean and Rachel
Eine tolle Wahl! Sally und ihre Familie nahmen uns herzlich auf. Wir fühlten uns von Beginn an als ein Teil der Familie, der sich im Haus bewegen konnte und - wann immer wir wollten - auchTipps von Sally und Sawas bekamen. Die Herzlichkeit und Offenheit, die wir in diesen 3 Tagen entgegengebracht bekamen hat uns den Aufenthalt noch angenehmer werden.
Das Zimmer ist recht klein - aber absolut ausreichend. Die Verkehrsanbindungen an die City sind prima - und mit Sally und Sawas Hilfe ein Kinderspiel! Immer wieder gerne!
