Fodor's Review

One of London's quirkiest hotels, the little Portobello (formed from two adjoining Victorian houses) has attracted scores of celebrities to its small but stylish rooms over the years, and the decor reflects these hip credentials with joyous abandon. Rooms are individually designed along classic themes with luxurious fabrics, statues, bric-a-brac and imaginative design flourishes. The intimate Japanese Room has paper lanterns and a little wooden conservatory; while the sumptuous Room 13 contains a genuine royal four-poster bed from Hampton Court. One room even contains an original Victorian "bathing machine" next to the bed—legend has it that Johnny Depp once filled it with champagne for his then-girlfriend Kate Moss.
