All was well pleasant with my stay. One minor criticism, on arrival we was given a 'complimentary upgrade' of room to one on the below ground level with very little natural light. Other than that the stay was great and I would recommend the hotel.

Good hotel in an excellent location on quiet Kensington side-street. Comfortable, clean, pleasantly decorated room with good quality fixtures. Our only complaint was that it was somewhat small, but we managed well and enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Very comfortable bed, with quality linens, etc. Did not eat breakfast in hotel (GBP15/person), but got in a selection of treats from the local Waitrose to enjoy in our room as we planned our days.

"Lovely heritage hotel close to the British Museum."
I cannot say enough good things about the Portland. Service was the mantra in every department. Opening the door to my room on the bottom level, I actually stopped to admire the jewel box aspect. Beautiful draperies. Incredible use of a small space. I had a single room with a three quarter bed that was nicely dressed and comfortable. The kitchenette built into one wall had everything you needed, including teas and creamers in the fridge. The bathroom was modern and relatively spacious and sooo clean. The closet had lots of hangers and a safe, as well as an ironing board and iron. Breakfast was served in another hotel of the Bloomsbury complex but just a couple of doors down the street. And it too was very good. I used room service and the quality was excellent. Any questions I had, Reception was only too pleased to answer. Taxis were called and were prompt. And it is about £13 from the hotel to Paddington Station and the Heathrow Express to Terminal 3 or 5, with a connect to 4. I highly recommend the Portland in every way.
