Portobello Gold

95–97 Portobello Rd., London, W11 2QB, England

This no-frills B&B, in the heart of the Portobello Road antiques area above the pub and restaurant of the same name, offers comfortable guest rooms where double beds take up almost all the space. The best option is the split-level apartment (£180, sleeps six) with roof terrace, small kitchen, and soothing aquarium. The casual restaurant serves international food and has a great wine list, all at reasonable prices. Fun day-trip alert: the owner's wife runs trips to see English vineyards in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside; drop them a line for details (notice may be required).
